Gate 2, The Receptive & Gate of Higher Knowing

Saturday, May 4th the Sun entered Gate 2.


In Human Design Gate 2 is where the Magnetic Monopole resides. The Monopole aligns us to our trajectory in life and holds us together in an illusion of separateness. It’s responsible for our experience of love of the other and we literally breath love in and out with each breath.

The ancients may have referred to this cosmic energy as the ‘Higher Self.’ It’s the very essence of our direction or trajectory through life. When we allow life to flow to us and through us our higher self knows the path that is correct for us.

We begin the Quarter of Civilization with the most Yin of all gates, The Receptive. This gate, consisting of all Yin lines, represents the power of the feminine principle and a receptivity that is more powerful and healing than it’s given credit for in our modern times.

Higher Knowing is found in each individual’s direction of self toward love and beauty. It’s the driver of our body and mind through this life. Through the G Center, where The Receptive resides, we find our identity, direction and love.

What would it feel like to be receptive and spacious like the vast blue ocean? Will you let the river of changes flow to you?

Is it possible to strive for a natural responsiveness that is based on inner strength rather than outer bravado? You may be able to go further by letting go of control and not fighting the currents.

Receptive (feminine) power arises through alignment with the Creative (masculine) power, not in opposition to it. It can be a beautiful balance.

Love Yourself.

What are Solar Transits?

In Human Design, Solar Transits reflect the impact the Sun is having on humanity as it moves through the Gates and Lines of the Mandala (64 Gates and 384 Lines). Transits are potentials that you may see in others and the world around you, and, may become a part of your experience as well.

Not everyone experiences these energies … and if we do, we experience them filtered through our own unique Human Design.
