Daily Impact - October 20 2019, 13:00 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 x 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’ x and becoming more aware by observing the themes unfold.

Gate 50 - The Cauldron


Bodygraph position: The SPLENIC Centre

Quarter: The Quarter of Duality - Purpose fulfilled through Relating

Line 1 - The immigrant

Keynote: Humbleness of origin that benefits rather than restricts destiny.

Exalted: The desire to be effective and successful that builds on the most fundamental strengths while it refines its nature. The awareness that the growth and refinement of values will benefit destiny.

Detriment: A dissatisfaction with/or embarrassment with origins, that makes an obsession of refinement. A dissatisfaction with original values that demands refinement.

* Here we see a judge’s gavel (ceremonial mallet) and sound block. In the background there are the scales to weigh the balance of what is just between two conflicting parties. A fitting image for the Gate of Values, which can represent the laws of the land, that must be obeyed, or the appropriate punishment for breaking them.

The Tribal Law Maker Gate comes in with the Sun’s impact at this time. This is a Gate of Tribal Values and can have us thinking about what we may consider to be the values we uphold, while living our lives in a healthy and responsible way. It may highlight the ways in which our values may differ from the laws of the land, as well as what we respect in those laws in terms of what is necessary to maintain order, for example “Thou must not kill” and so on.

You may find yourself considering what values you may want to pass down to the children so that they may lead lives that can be more productive, ethical and supportive to the community and society at large.

This frequency of protective guidance also carries with it the doling out of justified punishment, for those that step beyond the established laws. This may arise in terms of family dynamics and the hierarchy that exists, usually by the children testing the parents’ rules. On a personal level, we might consider if our values are more important than the values of those around us, and whether we are justified in not adhering to the general laws. Some of society’s laws may be considered to be unnecessary to us, or even unjust, and may need to be challenged.

In our current times, the laws of government are protecting many of the interests of huge corporations, which can be directly detrimental to the people, which the laws should be protecting. You may find yourself considering laws that may be considered immoral to many; for instance, the way the food industry prospers by using addictive additives to boost customer loyalty, or the increasing use of surveillance technology that invades the personal privacy of the individual, and the emergence of new ways to fine people for minor deviations of the rule of law.

Law keeper or lawbreaker, both sides are likely to come to our attention at this time. Perhaps we will get glimpses of where we are irresponsible in our dealings with others in some ways or whether we are living in a way that does not honour the integrity and health of our own bodies.

This is the source of all Splenic awareness and in the ancient Chinese I Ching it is represented by a cauldron where the values of society and our own personal values are synthesised. You may find yourself considering where you are being over-responsible in supporting others and need to become more responsible for living your own life, in a way that better fits with who you are.

As part of the impact of this transit we have the 3rd Gate in the grounding of the Earth, so in combination with the 50, we may be considering whether, for our own values to be maintained, there are things we should do to bring about a new order in our lives.

Harmonic Gate

If you have the 27th Gate in your chart then the ‘Channel of Preservation’ needs to be considered. Here the awareness of responsibility joins with the energy for caring and nourishing. You may find yourself caring for others in a more responsible way for example, you may change the way you feed your family or yourself, whether in quantity, quality or both.

You may want to raise the quality of life for you or your nearest and dearest by establishing more ground rules to live by. Alternatively you may be pointing out the lack of ‘decent’ values in those around you and use your energy to establish those values.

1ST LINE DAY: Investigation • Insecurity • Self-Absorbed • Creativity

This is the Line of the ‘Investigator’. So this may well be a day when we are introspective in our own investigations.

Security is a theme related to the 1st Line and this is a good day to consider those areas where we may be weak now, and where we could be stronger once we delve deeper into whatever that weakness may be. Where there is insecurity, one can become more secure and more self-sufficient.

So it’s a good day for researching and studying the details that we may not have been ready to deal with before.

There is a natural empathy in the 1st Line when it comes to being open to further information on something that interests us. So be open to learning more on this day.

Being self-absorbed is a fundamental theme and so this is not a particularly good time for socialising, unless we will learn something by meeting others.

As a bonding strategy, the 1st Line theme is pursuer / pursued so be aware of this conditioning around people today. Are we pursuing someone or something and surprised about how direct we can be? Is someone pursuing us, for personal or work-related reasons?

There is also an Authoritarian flavour to the 1st Line themes. Investigators go deep into the foundations out of a feeling of insecurity and become experts in the process. Are we being more authoritarian in our specialised field than usual? Do we notice the exchange of deep information going out from us or coming in to us from others today?

The Aspired-to Role is creativity. So we may find ourselves being creative in our own self-absorbed, investigative processes today.

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.
