Sun transits Gate 46 and Nodes are being defined by Gate 34-20
Before we explore the transits for the week, I want to revisit the nodes and the outer planets – just so that you’re equipped with a bigger picture of what’s up on the planet and why your personal narrative (and making sure you’re telling yourself an empowered story) is so essential.
Just a quick review.
The Nodes set the theme or the “plot outline” for our personal and collective narrative. The South Node represents what we need to understand and learn from in order to move into the theme of the North Node.
The Nodes shifted into the Gate 34, the Gate of Power (South Node) and the Gate 20, the Gate of Patience (North Node) completing the Channel 34/20 on September 5.
Channel 34/20, the Channel of Responsive Power (the Channel of Power and Charisma in Traditional Human Design) defines both the Throat Center and the Sacral Center. The nature of how this Channel functions will change as the chart changes in 2027. Currently, this is part of a circuit called the Unifying Circuit (Integration Circuit).
This channel defines the archetype of the Time Bender (Manifesting Generator).
It is the only channel that connects the Sacral Center directly to the Throat Center without passing through any other Centers. It is the most powerful Channel in the Human Design chart, giving us the theme of sustainable responsive energy that is expressed in response to what’s needed.
The mastery of the theme of this channel teaches us to trust that when our response and power is required, the opportunity to take the lead will show itself. To fully activate and utilize this incredible power to “do”, we have to manage our energy so that it stays sustainable. We must be dialed in to the needs of the world so that we can respond to the call to unify our energy with the energy of others and do the “work” to create something new, something more sustainable and better for all of us.
Both of these Gates are in the Individual Circuit (the Transformation Circuit in Quantum Human Design), the circuitry in Human Design which is designed to initiate the world into the changes necessary to transform the world.
The Nodes are highlighting the Gates 34 and 20 until January 17, 2022 and continue to highlight Gates in the Individual Circuit until 2024.
What does that mean?
First of all, that means that all children born from September 5, 2021 until January 17, 2022 will be Time Benders (Manifesting Generators). I think the class of 2036 is going to be very interesting indeed!
Secondly, this means that the themes of the Individual Circuit will be highlighted for all of us for the next 3-4 years.
There are more interesting facts to contemplate here but I’m doing my best to keep this simple for this week! I’ll unpack more in the next couple of weeks!!
There are three kinds of circuits in Human Design, Individual (Transformation in Quantum Human Design), Tribal (Sustainability in Quantum Human Design) and Collective (Synergy in Quantum Human Design. Each Circuit plays an essential role in the evolution of humanity.
Individual Circuitry brings mutation and change. Tribal Circuity explores and implements the ideas brought in by the Individual Circuit and, once the change has demonstrated that it’s functional and adaptable, it is integrated into the Collective.
Think of it like this. Imagine that there are two caveman brothers, Bob and Tom. Bob is a little weird and strange. He tries his whole life to fit in but no one really “gets” him. Bob moves out of his family group and makes a home on his own by the edge of fruitful river a mile or so away from his family where he is very happy to be free to do his own thing.
Tom is very different from his brother, Bob. Tom has a deep sense of being rooted in his family group and works tirelessly to make sure that his family has everything they need to be healthy and abundant. This includes his brother, Bob. Once a week, Tom travels to visit Bob at his home by the river to make sure Bob is okay and thriving. Both brothers enjoy their weekly meeting because, even though they are very different, they deeply love each other.
One week Tom notices that Bob is using a cool tool that he invented that makes construction and work much easier. Tom studies the tool and decides to make his own when he gets home to his family group.
The tool is so popular and makes work so much easier that soon all of his family group has made their own and using the tool to make building shelters and gathering fruit easier.
In the fall, Tom travels with extra food and supplies over the hill to a gathering place with other leaders from different family groups. He brings his new tool with him. Other leaders from the different family groups see Tom using his new tool and make their own, bringing this new invention to their own family groups.
Soon, the leaders of the different family groups gather and decide that this tool is incredibly valuable and that all known family groups far and wide should have access to this powerful tool because it saves so much time, energy and effort. They create a committee to make the tools and to travel around the area delivering the tools to different family groups and increasing the quality of life everywhere they travel.
Bob represents the core theme of the Individual Circuit. He doesn’t quite fit in. He has his own ideas. He stays true to those ideas and travels on his own on a journey of self-exploration and self-expression.
Bob’s new ideas and insights profoundly influence Tom, who represents Tribal Circuitry. Tom is deeply occupied with exploring what would make the people he loves happy and safe. He takes great joy in nurturing others and his contribution makes everyone around him feel loved and safe.
The leaders from the other family groups who enable new legislation for the “tool” represent Collective Circuitry. Their joint actions create initiatives that not only make their own family groups safer and more sustainable, they work to ensure that others have the same opportunities for growth and access to resources.
This is an idealized version of how all the circuits work together. Let me remind us all that we all have all of the Gates and Circuits, just some of them are defined (colored in) and some are open (white).
We all have Gates from all of the Circuits defined in our charts.
Some of us are more profoundly influenced by the themes of the different Circuits. If you have Channels in a particular Circuit defined in your chart, it will most likely give you the theme of that particular circuit in your life story.
Ra used to teach that Individual circuitry doesn’t “care”. I think this teaching gets wildly misinterpreted.
Let’s start first with the definition of the verb, “to care”
Essential Meaning of care
1: effort made to do something correctly, safely, or without causing damage
She used care in selecting a doctor for her son.
a box marked “Handle With Care” [=handle carefully]
2: things that are done to keep someone healthy, safe, etc.
The children have inadequate medical care and little formal education.
We need to provide poor people with better dental care.
3: things that are done to keep something in good condition
She wrote a book about car care.
With proper care, the machine should last a decade or more.
Somehow in the interpretation of the phrase, “Individuality doesn’t ‘care’,” we concluded that people with a lot of Individual Circuitry don’t have empathy or feelings for other people, have little regard for what others think or experience and basically can wonder the earth oblivious to the impact of their choices on others.
Let’s be clear, this kind of “not caring” is the shadow expression of the Will Center (Ego), NOT individuality.
The Will Center, by the way, is almost exclusively a Tribal Center, all of the Channels connected to the Will Center with the exception of the Channel 25/51, the Channel of Initiation in Quantum Human Design, are Tribal and all about “caring”. The Channel of Initiation is the Channel that bridges our personal identity (Ego) to the Higher Self.
The “not caring” of the Individual is not about “not caring” about others, it’s about not caring about what other people think of your unique way of expressing yourself, your innovative ideas and your exquisite alignment with your Authentic Self.
The ability of the Individual to stay true to their unique, vital and irreplaceable role in the Cosmic Plan allows the Individual to serve their essential role of bringing change and consequent evolution to the world.
When we live in alignment with our Authentic Self and we claim our personal place in the Cosmic Plan, we live from a place of understanding our value. That recognition of our own personal value enables us to not only claim our own value, but to see the value of others.
It takes tremendous courage and self-worth to fulfill the destiny of Individual Circuitry and cultivating THAT is the challenge facing us over the next few years.
This next cycle tasks us with learning to trust in the timing of the universe.
We are mastering waiting patiently and preparing to take action when the timing is right and to keep our energy occupied while we wait. We are activating our personal empowerment and letting go of playing small, stepping into the unapologetic expression of who we are and claiming and defending our unique role in the world.
Ra used to also teach that the role of the Individual is to be themselves because it’s from that place of alignment with the Authentic Self, that they show others how to be true to who they are. I agree with this.
Alignment with the Authentic Self creates a high frequency of energy and a state of physiological Heart coherence, which in turn influences your electro-magnetic resonance.
All of these states are “contagious”. When you live true to yourself, you create a wave of energy that lifts others up and encourages them to be in the same energy field of pure self-expression.
Your alignment creates a resonance field that entrains others to be in alignment too, which then spreads to other people and to more people and to other people and so on and so on.
THIS is the power of individuality.
Not only that, fully expressing your Authentic Self and the initiatives that are yours to fulfill, creates phenomenal change and transformation.
Think about Bob.
What would have happened if Bob had denied his own alignment with his Authentic Individual Self? What if he had sucked it up, settled down and forced himself to fit inside the Tribal box he was born into? What might never have been born into existence if he had failed to follow his true path?
What might never be born into existence if you fail to follow your own true path?
That is the question for us to explore and contemplate over the next few years.
Okay. Let’s get to the transits for this week.
I want to talk briefly about Jupiter and Saturn and relationships and then give you an overview of the Sun and the Earth.
Jupiter and Saturn are both still doing their retrograde-cha-cha-cha.
The energy of Saturn is always about teaching and learning.
Saturn brings us lessons through the events in our outer reality. With their benevolent hand, Saturn sweeps the landscape and highlights all the obstacles we need to remove out of our path. These lessons can feel cataclysmic and punitive at times – especially if we are significantly out of alignment with our Authentic Self – but the purpose of these events is to show us what we need to work on as part of our evolution and growth.
Jupiter highlights where we’ll benefit and grow once we master the lessons of Saturn.
With both planets being retrograde, we’re contemplating on the inner plane, the lessons of these two archetypes.
Saturn is in the Gate 41, the Gate of Imagination.
Jupiter is in the Gate 49, the Gate of the Catalyst.
We are either imagining something better and taking bold action to create space to call that “something better” into our lives, or we’re reacting to fantasies about our partnerships and either failing to take the right actions or we’re creating messy drama around something that might be exactly true.
Either way, assess your relationship status carefully and use this powerful time to imagine what you truly want to be experiencing and then creative a love revolution in your life.
The Sun this week transits the Gate 46, the Gate of Embodiment. The Earth grounds us in the Gate 25, the Love of Spirit.
We are being reminded that the body is a vehicle for the Soul. Without a vital, strong and healthy body, we struggle to fulfill our Soul Purpose.
We are learning to love our bodies, to fully be in our bodies and to learn to love the sensual nature of your physical form and to move it with love and awareness. There is a deep relationship between the directive of your soul and your physical ability to express that directive.
This is a great week to explore how you can take better care of your body so that you’re fully embodying the joy of Spirit.
A lot for you to contemplate this week. Have a wonderful week!
From my Heart to Yours,
