Human Design: Energy of January Gate Transits

Updated: Mar 9

During January we will experience the energy of the Sun transiting through Human Design Gate 38, 54, 61, 60, 41, and 19. Each of these transits changes the background frequency we all experience. Below are brief descriptions on how these energies show up if you have these Gates activated in your Human Design BodyGraph. Click on the Gate numbers above to find out how the transit energy can impact us as a collective.

The majority of these Gates can be found in the Root Center, which is one of two pressure centers in our charts. Check out ​this blog post​  for more information on the Root Center and the pressures associated with each Gate.

Human Design January Gate Transits

Human Design Gate 38

Gate 38: The Fighter

Center: Root

Circuit: ​Individual​ (Empowering)

Sub Circuit: ​Knowing​ 


38.1 - Qualification

38.2 - Politeness

38.3 - Alliance

38.4 - Investigation

38.5 - Alienation

38.6 - Misunderstanding

If you have Gate 38 activated in your Human Design BodyGraph, you have the ability to confront challenges and are not afraid to meet opposition. In fact, you even enjoy a good fight sometimes. You are not easily influenced by others and can be fiercely independent and stubborn. You exert pressure on yourself and those around you to seek out the purpose of life and the reason you exist. You also will stand up for those unable to stand up for themselves in the face of adversity. It is important that you follow your Strategy and Authority so that you engage only in those battles that are correct for you.

Human Design Gate 54

Gate 54: Drive

Center: Root

Circuit: ​Tribal (Support)​

Sub Circuit: ​Ego


54.1 - Influence

54.2 - Discretion

54.3 - Covert Interaction

54.4 - Enlightenment/Endarkenment 54.5 - Magnanimity

54.6 - Selectivity

If you have Gate 54 activated in your Human Design BodyGraph, there is no stopping you when you are lit up by something, and your drive can also be the pressure that moves others around you into transformation as well. You are here to be successful and climb the ranks, but you are not designed to get there alone. You need to be recognized by people that support and believe in you to get what you are going after. Once you have mastered the material plane, and its ambitions, a spiritual transformation is possible. Without Gate 32, you may struggle to find the direction for your drive and ambition. 

Human Design Gate 61

Gate 61: Mystery

Center: Head

Circuit: ​Individual​ (Empowering)

Sub Circuit: ​Knowing​ ​


61.1 - Occult Knowledge 61.2 - Natural Brilliance 61.3 - Interdependence 61.4 - Research 61.5 - Influence 61.6 - Appeal

If you have Gate 61 activated in your Human Design BodyGraph, you are intrigued by knowing the mysteries of life and are here to enjoy your thoughts wherever you find your mind wandering. You have the desire to seek out the mysteries, myths, and universal truths that can inspire and empower yourself and others. You don’t have to figure it all out. Trust that your inner truth, and divine inspiration, will reveal itself in its own unique timing. This is not an energy that has proof behind its knowing, and it can’t be easily explained. You may find yourself under pressure to force some kind of understanding, which can lead to anxiousness, headaches, and even eye problems.

Human Design Gate 60

Gate 60: Acceptance

Center: Root

Circuit: ​Individual​ (Empowering)

Sub Circuit: ​Knowing​ 


60.1 - Acceptance

60.2 - Decisiveness

60.3 - Conservatism

60.4 - Resourcefulness

60.5 - Leadership

60.6 - Rigidity

If you have Gate 60 activated in your Human Design BodyGraph, you are here to affect change and have the ability to turn pure energy into form. This creative process is subject to an energetic pulse that turns on and off and you can become impatient, and experience melancholy or even depression, due to the unpredictable process of mutation. The key to avoiding frustration is to accept the mystery, and limitations, of the mutative process. Trust that the transformation is occurring within you, and in the world around you, because of your energy.

Human Design Gate 41

Gate 41: Contraction

Center: Root

Sub Circuit: ​Abstract/Sensing

Lines: 41.1 - Reasonableness 41.2 - Caution 41.3 - Efficiency 41.4 - Correction 41.5 - Authorization 41.6 - Contagion

If you have Gate 41 activated in your Human Design BodyGraph, you enjoy interacting with others in order to explore new emotions. There is a pressure of desire that builds in you as you tap into your imagination and daydream, leading you to feel restless and wanting to experience something new with someone. Learn to let go of your expectations of these experiences so you can flow through them and avoid becoming pessimistic about the future. With this energy, you are also likely someone who prefers visual stimulation. By watching or reading you are able to fantasize and vicariously experience and feel something new through those mediums.

Human Design Gate 19

Gate 19: Wanting

Center: Root

Circuit: Tribal (Support)​

Sub Circuit: ​Ego

Lines: 19.1 - Interdependence 19.2 - Service 19.3 - Dedication 19.4 - The Team Player 19.5 - Sacrifice 19.6 - The Recluse

If you have Gate 19 activated in your Human Design BodyGraph, you are aware of which resources are needed and being withheld from your family and community. These include food, shelter, sexual and spiritual resources. You are also sensitive to what others need to thrive and achieve their full potential. If you turn this pressure inward, you may become oversensitive and needy, as you want to feel like you are an integral part of a group. Relationships are important to you, but so is making sure your needs are being met as well.
