With Gate 58, we start a tour of transits that take us through the Root Center, one of two pressure centers in the BodyGraph. Check out this blog post for more information on the Root Center and the pressures associated with each Gate.
If you have Gate 58 activated in your Human Design BodyGraph, you have an appreciation of beauty and a zest for life that attracts and brings joy to those around you. When you are in alignment, you are full of vitality and a cheerleader for others. When you are out of alignment, you will feel a sense of bitterness. You are someone who wants to help others to correct and fix things, especially unhealthy behaviors. You may feel pressured to logically test the viability of patterns you witness and possess the energy to move people from talk to action. Without Gate 18 you can feel pressured to be of service, but struggle to figure out exactly where to place this energy. If your Personality Sun is in Gate 58, your Incarnation Cross will either be the Right Angle Cross of Service 4, the Juxtaposiion Cross of Vitality, or the Left Angle Cross of Demands 2.

Gate 58: Vitality
The energy of the Human Design Gate 58 Sun Transit, in the Gate of Vitality, is all about the potential to see the beauty in everything as well as witness when something is weak or unhealthy. This is the energy of wanting to help correct and fix things, including behaviors and actions that prevent people from experiencing true well-being. It is the desire to create joy and share a sense of wonder with others. This week you may feel the pressure to improve situations in order to create a better life for yourself and those around you. However, without Gate 18 you can struggle with a lack of awareness around the best place to focus this energy.
Gate 58 is the fuel for logical experimentation. It allows us to test formulas and refine them through repetition, finding those patterns that are of value to the collective. It is a very important energy when it comes to the future of humanity. As with all Root Gates, the Gate of Vitality operates on a pulse. When the pulse is on, we experience a flow of energy that ultimately leads to creating mastery as it reaches up to manifest through Gate 16 in the Throat Center.
In its higher expression, this is the fuel to joyfully confront current patterns that no longer appear to be working. There is creative power in this Gate and it pushes us to contribute via corrections that serve humanity. You may notice a lot of conversations this week about what others believe is keeping society from achieving and maintaining health and well-being, as well as suggestions of potential changes to how things could be improved. The patterns we confront during this time often include those in authority who we believe are undermining the vitality of the collective or holding back others from experiencing joy.
In its lower expression, this energy can show up as the complete lack of joy. Or the sense that your happiness is dependent on something outside of your control changing. It can be deeply bitter and pessimistic as it sees an endless loop of imperfection and negativity. You may find, during this week, that you are overly critical of yourself or others. Remember, this is a projected energy and works best when it is recognized and invited. While the Sun is in Gate 58 you might witness people pushing advice onto others with the intention of having someone make a change so that the person initiating can feel better. This advice is not necessarily in the best interest of the person they are correcting. Also beware of turning this energy inwards and attempting to perfect all areas of yourself and your life. This can lead to overwhelm and denying yourself joy until everything looks a particular way.
It is interesting to note that the Sun enters Gate 58 on Christmas Day as a large part of the collective gathers to celebrate with loved ones and it takes us up through New Year’s Eve. This transit is a beautiful opportunity to cultivate a sense of joy and wonder for yourself and those around you. Revisit what makes you feel alive and note what adjustments in your life could possibly improve your well-being. This doesn’t mean you are meant to to rush into action. In fact, it is ideal that you wait a few more weeks until the energy is supportive for taking the next steps towards change. Remember to honor your Strategy and Authority as you decide which new patterns to implement and experiment with in the future.
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!
