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.
If your Personality Sun is in Gate 60, your Incarnation Cross will either be the Right Angle Cross of Laws 4, the Juxtaposition Cross of Limitation, or the Left Angle Cross of Distraction 2.

Gate 60: Acceptance
The energy of the Human Design Gate 60 Sun Transit, in the Gate of Acceptance, is all about the pressure you feel to take your energy and create a change or transformation. This is the fuel to exercise restraint along with the pressure to break free from, or transcend, limitations. This week you may experience discomfort and feel stuck from that pressure building and a restlessness as you want to move ahead and enact change in your life.
This energy is both holding onto old ways of operating and wanting to be innovative and resourceful in new ways. It desires to keep what is viable and wise from the old processes in place. You are being challenged to accept the rules or limitations around you and come up with creative solutions within those boundaries. It is a beautiful week to practice surrendering control of life and allowing it to unfold naturally. This is about having patience and trusting that even when it feels nothing is moving forward, something is always brewing beneath the surface ready to burst through when the timing is right.
Essentially this is the energy of letting go, including letting go of the need to control and initiate change in your own mental timing. Accepting your limitations is the first step to transcending them. You have to let go in order to change, grow, and evolve. Once you let go, this energy can be the catalyst for transformation at the individual level which ultimately has the potential to transform society as well. It may be helpful to reframe the idea of limitations from being something that is holding you back into them being a starting point for true innovation because innovation requires adaptation. These limitations can truly make you stronger. If you are feeling blocked in one area of your life, it may be helpful to shift your attention to another aspect of your life.
This is often the time of year where you will notice people who made New Year’s Resolutions on January 1st really start to struggle with keeping these new commitments to themselves. Often people make resolutions from a place of not-self and, on top of that, the first three weeks of the year don’t have the optimal frequency to support them in their transformation. Over the past few weeks you have explored what worked in the past, what didn’t and what you are excited about and willing to fight for (Gate 38), who your allies are when it comes to reaching your next level of evolution (Gate 54), slowing down to assess your own inner knowing of why you are here (Gate 61), and now you prompted to explore how best to move forward into your expansion by letting go of those things that no longer serve you from our past (60). These are the necessary steps for us to complete the previous solar cycle and step into the new year fresh and ready to start a new cycle when the sun enters Gate 41.
In its high expression, this is the energy of flowing with life, working within its true limitations, and breaking through those that are falsely constructed. You are able to notice which limitations actually enhance your creativity. In its low expression you may feel victimized by the rules, boundaries, laws, and red tape in your life. There can be inner turmoil, tension, and stress as your mind tries to force a change. With Gate 60 in the transits you may feel melancholy around feeling lost, directionless and lacking forward momentum in your journey. You may also experience deep sadness around having no goals or a specific destination in this life. For some some who are not patient with the process, this can deepen and become chronic depression. It is worth noting that we all have also been experiencing Pluto in Gate 60 on an off for the last couple of years. If you have felt frustration with a lack of momentum, this may be why.
Remember, each person’s BodyGraph has its set of limitations, starting with your unique Strategy and Authority created by your definition. Honoring these boundaries helps you avoid wasting time, energy, and money that will ultimately end up in frustration, bitterness, anger, or disappointment. This week you will experience the pressure to accept the limitations of who you are, who others are, and what it means to truly live life as yourself. It is in accepting these limitations that allows you to eventually transcend them when the timing is correct.

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!
