Archetypes as the Gates in Human Design - An Introduction

INTRODUCING… THE HUMAN DESIGN ARCHETYPES

Here’s a bit of background info on why we’re talking about them.

WTF ARE THE GATES/GENE KEYS? 

The gates in Human Design (the numbers on your bodygraph) are the same thing as the Gene Keys. 

When they are defined (coloured in black or red), they are consistent archetypes you get to live. They're your challenges and your superpowers. 

(They're also one of my favourite parts of HD)

WTF ARE TRANSITS?

The Sun moves through each of the 64 gates throughout the year and activates the energy in that specific gate. The Sun moves/transits through each gate for six days, then moves into the next gate. Just to add more confusion, they're not in numerical order. So, each week, I'll highlight the gate the Sun is moving through, aka transiting.

HOW DO I USE THE TRANSITS?

Transits are a huge subject, so for this Museletter, all you need to know is that when the gate is activated (the sun is transiting the gate), you have superpowers! 

The gate might complete a channel for you or amplify the gate if you have it activated in your chart. 

WHY ARCHETYPES?

Archetypes are one of my favourite modalities to work with.


I find that you have to experience the scenario of the gates, or they are tough to imagine. Right?


Have you experienced veneration?

Say what?!


I use archetypes because we can imagine someone we know or someone in the public eye that has experienced veneration, i.e. building a legacy (gate 32).


Humans are designed to understand stories rather than complex concepts.

And stories happen to humans because they go through the Hero's Journey.


From the shadow (who are they) to the gift (their trial) and onto the Siddhi (their most authentic self).


I find it easier to embody the characteristics of an archetype when you have someone in mind who IS that archetype rather than an abstract concept.
