Daily Impact - May 23 2022, 18:23 UTC *

The ‘Daily Impact’ interpretation reflects the impact of the Sun and Earth (70% of the neutrino influence) on what happens in the world as time moves us through the Gates and Lines of the Human Design wheel. 

What is offered here is a general frame to the day, especially in terms of external conditioning and potential identification with the power of the Sun’s influence through a particular Gate theme. Also consider what is written about the grounding effect of the Gate in the Earth position of the day. Take note of the Line of the day and think about the quality of the Line and the Rave I Ching cryptic sentence. And, of course, pay attention to any Channels that may be formed on the day, as that Life Force will most certainly be relevant to whatever happens. 

For those of you who are more familiar with the Gates and Channels, pay attention to the chart of the day which shows us the detail of the day’s imprint. Look for Gates that may join a ‘hanging’ Gate in your chart, notice the planetary accent it has and ponder upon its relevance to your day. Above all else, ‘The Daily Impact’ is a tool to assist subscribers to witness themselves living their life within ‘The Program’ and becoming more aware by observing the themes unfold.

Gate 20 - Contemplation


Bodygraph position: The THROAT Centre

Quarter: The Quarter of Civilisation - Purpose fulfilled through Form

Line 3 - Self-awareness

Keynote: Understanding derived from analysis of personal actions and effects.

Exalted: The proper attunement and development of the personality through selfconsciousness. The expression of self-conscious awareness in the now.

Detriment: Self-consciousness in the extreme that hampers development. The expression of self-consciousness in the extreme.

* Here we see schoolgirl on an open road looking towards a beautiful sunset with her arms raised. She represents an existential state connecting with all that is in a magical moment. Her arms rise by themselves and a deep sense of oneness is experienced. What knowing arises as the muse moves within her is not for us to know.

This 20th Gate is the verbal expression of individual existential knowing. What will be expressed will depend to some degree on the three Harmonic Gates of the Integration Channel 57, 34 and 10 – see below. However if you don’t have any of these in your chart you will still be conditioned by this influence.

So what can we expect? As the ‘Gate of the Now’ what will be expressed is likely to be somewhat quirky. It may be words as an expression of the moment; perhaps an acknowledgement and appreciation of beauty or your own perception of the moment. It could be quirky humorous exclamations. It could be profound or it could be ‘silly’. It may even be a personal truth that emerges which you didn’t even know you knew. This may be a day when the muse could favour your creative output.

There may be sounds that pop out of your mouth or the mouths of others. Listen to the intonation of what is expressed and hold it in your awareness for a deeper clarity of its meaning. If you are involved in something that really isn’t correct for you, there may be a ‘groan’ or an outbreath that you become aware of as being really true for you, in expressing that whatever you are involved in or maybe whoever you are dealing with is just not nourishing for you.

On the other hand, with the 20th Gate influence impacting us, there could also be some real ‘magical moments’ during this time. By that I mean, those times when you are so ‘in’ the present that time goes by incredibly quickly. And yet there is an eternal quality that allows us to return to such moments for the rest of our lives at a frequency level, even if the precise content may fade over the decades.

Top Tip: Allow yourself to be receptive to the moment, especially when synchronicity becomes apparent and contemplate whatever you receive.

The 34th Gate of Power grounds us at this time. So we can expect to be more selfish than usual as we will be tempted to be busy about whatever it is we want to be busy doing. In short, we, and those around us are not going to be so available; neither will we be so eager to share our energy with others.

Harmonic Gates

Harmonic Gate (34): If you have the 34th Gate in the Sacral Centre, then the themes in the Channel of Charisma apply. This could be a time when you become very busy and self-absorbed in your own busyness. Bear in mind that being busy may not be about actually doing something, it could also be about being busy doing very little. For instance, if you have exhausted yourself you may just find yourself using this theme to watch a film or read a book. The main thing is, that you do what you want to do. There is the possibility that you may become more ‘pushy’ with others if they are getting in your way. Be careful not to stomp over those you feel restrict your inherent freedom, as this is not a subtle energy and inappropriate actions tend to have negative repercussions. If you are on the receiving end of this kind of encounter, then remember the transit influence could be the cause.

Harmonic Gate (10): If you have the 10th Gate in the G Centre, then the themes in the Channel of Awakening apply to some degree. This could be a time when you become very sensitive to how people react to you speaking from your Higher Self. Perhaps something profound or poetic may be expressed that has a great deal of meaning for you and yet spoken, without the invitation being given can mean your words are not appreciated.

There can be a few times in one’s life when one can feel completely alone. One of them is when you speak a deep truth and it falls upon ears that cannot hear it. Just know this is a transit and taking such things to heart is not helpful. Write it down instead, and wait until you are around those who are more in tune with you.

If you have the 20th Gate in an Open Throat, then the real key is to wait for the moment to speak and then allow sufficient silence to follow whatever you have said. Always be ready to ‘back off’ if you are not heard. Beware of talking about yourself too much. Be aware of the one you are talking to. Treasure the magic moments when the world and those around you may express something that enriches your appreciation of the endless wisdom available in this life.

Harmonic Gate (57): If you have the 57th Gate in the Splenic Centre, then The Channel of the Brainwave and its projected theme can be considered. If the 57th Gate is in a Fixed Splenic Centre you may be tempted to make spontaneous utterances as the intuitive knowing arises in you. Don’t let your mind come in and turn an awareness into an action without a correct invitation coming to you from the outside. You may genuinely shock someone or reveal something in inappropriate circumstances. Just because knowing has arisen, it does not always mean you have to share it immediately. If you are an Emotional being, this is especially a time to wait out your emotional wave. On the other hand, you may get to know who would be receptive to hearing what you know at the right time.

You may find yourself improvising more than usual and if your timing is good you may be surprised by the depth or accuracy of penetrating to the core of whatever going on in the moment.

3RD LINE DAY : Trial and Error • Mutative • Material • Bonds made and Broken

This is a mutative time where things may not go as planned. Flow with the chaos that may come with this day. Use your Strategy and Authority to navigate through what may be the meeting of the unexpected.

The 3rd Line carries with it the tendency to ‘bump’ into things or people. Now this could be perceived as negative or positive. Negative in terms of accidents or breakages or positive in terms of the sudden appearance of an old friend or perhaps finding yourself outside a store that has exactly what you want at a sale price.

The 3rd Line is also known as the Line of Trial and Error. So this can be a time when more inaccuracies or mistakes may manifest. It is a process of experiential learning. Sure, something may go wrong, but in learning why it went wrong new discoveries may be made.

The 3rd Line also has a material connotation to it. So this is also a time when money could be made... or lost. It is a time when the material demands of modern society may wear heavy on our heads or a time when we get to grips with the material necessities and deal with it.

There is also the possibility of experiencing shame in some way due to ‘mistakes’ that may be made. We need to be forgiving of ourselves, and others, today. After all it is the transit that is affecting us, and it is not as easy to live by one’s Strategy and Authority it is to understand it conceptually. Also see that ‘mistakes’ are essential for us to grow; by encountering limits we may not recognise in ourselves unless we experience them.

Bonds being made and broken is an important 3rd Line theme. The 3rd Line is adaptive and that entails breaking bonds that are obstructive, restricting or unpleasant. If you have a 3rd Line in your Profile, then it is important for you to break the bonds in order to expand your experience of life. On this day everyone will be conditioned to do so to some extent. Our Strategy and Authority will let us know if it’s correct or not. Be aware that the majority of the population don’t know they are being conditioned today by this theme, so watch it play out. Bonds that have been broken can be mended later on, in some cases.

Get to know the themes of the Lines as they come by as regular cycles throughout the weeks and months. As you track them, even occasionally, you will become more and more aware of the Program within which we live. Don’t let the conditioning of the day take you away from following your Strategy and Authority. Just look deeper into what is happening to you and around you.

Take this transit as an opportunity to see these themes occur within and around you. As you see them you will then have the opportunity to consider that you yourself may indeed be a pattern in a larger Program, as described by The Human Design System. If you can verify the truth of the transiting Gates in your life today, then I trust it will remind you to come back to following your Strategy and Authority - for that is the way to play the game. It is the way to wake up mechanically and experience what it is like to flow along in your life as yourself, without the resistance that comes from trying to live a conditioned life in a ‘Not-self’ world. 

As we notice the daily impact upon our own Human Design imprint during the day, we naturally grow in our awareness of ourselves and the adventure of what it is to be alive in a world that is constantly conditioning us.

Those who are Reflectors can align to the daily transit, paying particular attention to the drive of the Moon. The rest of us, Manifestors, Generators and Projectors are here to resist the conditioning in terms of our decision-making and learn from it to increase our wisdom.


UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) is a time standard based on Earth's rotation. It is a modern continuation of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), i.e., the mean solar time on the Prime Meridian at Greenwich, England. Check the time in your location against UT to calculate precisely when this transit will impact you. For instance, if you live in New York you will be 5 hours behind UT.
