The Planets & Your Human Design Gate Activations.
Each Chart has a total of 26 “activations” designated by the 13 planets listed on your Chart (Kiron / Chiron does not activate a Gate). The planets position at the moment of your birth and approximately three months prior to birth are what activate or define the Channels and Gates in your Chart.
The numbers in black (Soul Purpose / conscious) and the numbers in red (Life Story / unconscious) on either side of your BodyGraph – next to the planetary symbols – correspond with the colored in Definition on your Chart.
Each Planet represents a theme within your chart and the Gate holds the archetypal energy that plays out. Below, are the planetary themes represented in the Human Design chart.
