Human Design: Fears of the Solar Plexus Center Gates

Updated: Mar 9

Human Design Fears of the Solar Plexus Center Gates

It is important to distinguish between fear, logical reasoning, and your internal Authority. This is especially true because your Authority doesn't always lead you down the quick and easy route...or the route that makes the most sense to others. It leads you down the route that will give you the expansion, transformation, and results you need to experience at this time.

Pull up your Human Design Chart and look at your Solar Plexus Center (the large triangle on the lower right side of your chart).

The Solar Plexus is one of our three Awareness Centers, as well as a Motor Center, and the fears within it manifest as nervousness. This is the Center of social awareness and relational awareness.

If your Solar Plexus Center is defined (colored in), you are a naturally emotional person with consistent emotions that must not be resisted or controlled. This can be challenging, but is important because if you have a defined Solar Plexus Center you also have Emotional Authority. It is in riding your emotional wave(s) that you’ll experience clarity in your decision making.

If it is undefined (white), your emotions can be vulnerable to the conditioning of emotional ups and downs of others, and you can find you amplify the emotions of those around you. When unaware you may identify with the emotional wave of others, and try to give reason to emotions that aren't yours. You may avoid conflict at truth. As you become aware of your can become wise with emotional awareness.

Notice if any of your Gates are activated. There will be a red line (unconscious) a black line (conscious) or a combination of both a red and black line. If you experience one of the fears associated with the Human Design Solar Plexus Center Gates regularly, but DON'T have that Gate active in your Design, you may find it helpful to look up your parents', spouse's, or close friend's Designs. It is very possible that you are taking on this conditioning from someone else in one of your undefined Gates.

Gate 22: Openness | Fear: Silence

You experience nervousness that others won't listen to you, the right people aren't around to converse with, or that there is nothing worthwhile to listen to and provide intellectual growth.
