What do you have the heart for?

We're transiting Gate 21 from March 29 - April 3


Strength of will and a desire to be in control takes center stage.

What an interesting energy to come into during this time on our planet. A few great questions to contemplate during this transit might be:

  • Do you feel you need to be in control of everything in your life?
  • Or, have you given your power and control away?
  • Have you noticed any disagreements or friction regarding control?

Lightning precedes Thunder to illuminate how balance is corrected. What is missed by our vision is reinforced by sound.

Balance and truth are nature’s focus. By “Biting Through” difficulty you can speak honestly about what has disturbed your sense of balance or control.

You may feel successful when you control your own resources, where you live, who you work for, and how you make your living.

However, real success should be a win/win situation for all. Differences fine tune our collective strengths and provide the roadmap for productive growth for everyone.

When confronting an uncomfortable situation or disagreement, look inside yourself for the deeper truth. Courage is the faith to face the unknown and the uncomfortable.

If you attempt to assume power, or to control others without following your inner truth, you may encounter forceful resistance.

You aren’t designed to control other people’s thoughts and actions. You are meant to find your own inner truth.

And, will you view the situation to see how your success doesn’t have to come at the expense of someone else?

This cosmic energy is grounded by an intuitive knowledge that is deep … by having a conversation about the difficulty with others, you may find that the answer is already there deep inside you … so open to it.

It’s unnatural to think that one way – your way – is the only way. You have your truth and others have their own truth. In this time, you aren’t designed to blindly follow the crowd.

The owl can catch fleas at night but cannot see a mountain during the day. This is because different things have different natures.

Each and every one of us is unique and precious and perfect exactly how we are.

Try not to compare and measure others with a common denominator.

A fierce determination and willpower can “Bite Through” difficult situations when necessary. Biting Through allows life to move beyond all obstacles.

So, whenever arguments arise – understand that the storm is unearthing assumptions to unblock communication. Its purpose is to release the obstruction of illusions, regardless of where that might lead. This gate’s biological correlation is the heart muscle. What do you have the heart for?

“Always remember you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think and twice as beautiful as you’d ever imagined.” ~ Rumi

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.
