We continue on with the movement of the Sun counterclockwise through around the Gates on the Rave Mandala, depicted below. I hope you are enjoying the journey and observing how the energy is impacting yourself and those around you!
Join my email community if you want to read about the energy of the Sun transits before they are published here on the blog. Check out this blog post for a high level overview of all the Gates the Sun will transit in December. Read more about what I am referring to by the transits here in my post on the Human Design Gate 9 Sun Transit.
If you have Gate 26 activated in your Human Design BodyGraph, you have the ability to weave a story that convinces people they need what you are offering. This can relate to anything that requires buy-in from your circle of people, whether it is a product, business, idea, or yourself. You do need to wait for others to recognize that you have something they need, and only make promises you can keep, so you can maintain your influence. The ideal situation for you is one where you are recognized for your skills, set your own schedule (with a balance between rest and work), and are well rewarded for your efforts. If your Personality Sun is in Gate 26, your Incarnation Cross will either be the Right Angle Cross of Rulership 4, the Juxtaposition Cross of the Trickster, or the Left Angle Cross of Confrontation 2.
The energy of the Human Design Gate 26 Sun transit, in the Gate of The Egoist, is about materially supporting those who are in your tribe. This can be your family, social circle, work community, or local community. This is the Gate of the salesman and a marketing gate. It is about having the answers to why what you are selling is the best and having the confidence, and willpower, to back up your claims.
During this transit, we will experience being sold to for our benefit... or not. As with all energies, The Egoist can operate at a higher frequency or a lower frequency. There is a reason it is also called the Gate of the trickster. It can bring with it empty promises, manipulating, lying, and deceiving in order to take advantage of others and get what you want. This lower frequency is a result of a scarcity and lack mentality driven by fear. However, when approached with an abundance mindset, this is the energy for truly heart centered sales and marketing to support both yourself and others. It is the unique ability to sell a brighter future to your tribe with integrity. Sometimes we do require a bit of manipulation in order to take notice of what we are doing that may not be healthy or could be improved upon.
The timing of this energy being activated two weeks before Christmas and the traditional New Year is not accidental. The outer world is a manifestation of the background energies that most of us are unaware of. This is when many of us are looking purchase gifts for those we care about, as well as when we start contemplating what our own desires are for the new year ahead.
With Venus transiting Gate 44 starting on December 11th, everyone will have the full Channel of Surrender as well. This means we will all be temporarily experiencing the flavor of a defined heart. We will also have the ability to access splenic awareness and the power of persuasion. This channel is Tribal Circuitry, and you may feel the urge to surrender your own needs to the needs of others. You can find yourself and others making promises, competing, or willing themselves to keep going even when it is not aligned. You may notice more people showing power, strength, and wealth in order to boost their own ego. They may boast or push their on agenda at the cost of others, climbing over them to reach their end of year goals and be in the limelight. This energy can truly push people to say and do anything to get their way and close the deal.
It is good to pay attention to those who are trying to convince you purchase something, as well as your own intentions, during this time. Think about how that could play out with not only businesses, but children, employees, bosses, and significant others. What are they trying to get you to do or not do? Are they persuading from a place of integrity and support for others, or simply pursuing their own personal agenda? Are you exaggerating or leaving out some of the truth about what you are presenting to others?
This is an important time to note how you are spending your money and why. Are you honoring your Strategy and Authority or is all of the pressure of the season giving your Not-Self voices more airtime than usual? Your energy may be better spent taking stock of the abundance and material items you already have; perhaps even using this defined Spleen energy to do some decluttering of those things that are no longer serving your health and well-being.

Choose Your Own Adventure Sessions
This 90-minute, 1:1 Session is non-linear and far more in-depth than what you can take in from an online source or book. We will be looking at your Human Design holistically. There is a space when booking to tell me what you are interested in exploring. This could be the basics of your Human Design BodyGraph (Energy Type, Strategy, Authority, Centers, Channels, etc.) or a particular challenge you are bumping up against. We can dive into life in general, decision making, business, relationships, or parenting. It is entirely up to you!
