Human Design Gate 10 Sun Transit

Updated: Mar 9

If you have Gate 10 activated in your BodyGraph, you have the potential to embody the love of self and live authentically as yourself when following your Strategy and Authority. You love and accept yourself for who you are and take responsibility for your life through your behavior. By doing this, you empower others to accept and love themselves as well. If this Gate is part of a Channel, you will see it guided by intuition with Gate 57, empowered by the sacral response with Gate 34, or manifested and expressed through Gate 20. If your Personality Sun is in Gate 10, your Incarnation Cross will either be the Right Angle Cross of the Vessel of Love 4, the Juxtaposition Cross of Behavior, or the Left Angle Cross of Prevention 2.

Check out ​this blog post​ for a high level overview of all the Gates the Sun will transit in December.

Gate 10: The Behavior of the Self

Center: G-Center Circuit: Integration Channels (Self-Empowering) and Individual (Empowering) Sub Circuit: Centering

The energy of the Human Design Gate 10 Sun Transit, in the Gate of The Behavior of the Self, is all about living authentically as yourself as an act of self-love and empowering others to do so as well. During this time, you may naturally reflect on your life, including where you live, how you present yourself to others, and the contribution you are making. Does your current way of being in this world feel truly aligned with who you know yourself to be?

This transit is supportive of being exactly who you are. You may find that those around you are hyper focused on both their behavior and the behavior of others. It is interesting that this time of year brings out the expectation that everyone will be on their “best behavior” for the holidays.

Gate 10 is part of Individual Circuitry, and you may experience the melancholy that no one else knows how to behave as themselves and the suffering that brings as they meet resistance and experience Not-Self themes.

There can certainly be tension that arises when there is a difference between what you have been conditioned is appropriate behavior and being authentic to yourself. Situations may arise this week where the behavior that is correct for you is not what is deemed socially appropriate at the time. You will then have to decide which action feels most loving to yourself in the moment. You may make waves by challenging what is acceptable in order to preserve your energy and honor yourself without allowing interference from others.

In the lower expression of this energy, some people may have so much confidence and love for themselves that that they feel infallible. This brings about blaming others for mishaps in their life instead of taking responsibility for their own behavior. Also, the duality that comes with an energy with the potential to love yourself is a tendency towards self-hatred and rejection of self. You may have some strong feelings arise around times where you didn’t believe you behaved correctly or gave your best. This negative view of self can lead towards people pleasing and even codependency as you abandon moving in the natural direction of your authentic life.

Ideally, by this time of the season, you have finished much of the holiday shopping and preparations which means you can shift your attention back to self-care to support yourself during the upcoming holiday gatherings. By doing so, you will be in a much better position to give from overflow as you gather with loved ones. Hopefully with the support of this transit, you experience more compassion in the way you treat yourself, others, and any tricky situations that occur.

By loving your authentic self, you can find meaning and purpose in the direction your life takes... whether or not you have this Gate defined or a defined G-Center. Remember that the seemingly small decisions you make today will shape your tomorrow. It is best to follow your Strategy and Authority, so those actions are aligned with who you truly are. Consider what you value and desire for yourself and what boundaries you may need to establish. Treat yourself with love and honor your inner guidance and you will find yourself in the right place at the right time for whatever is meant next for you.
