Holy cow, Human Design. Really going down the rabbit hole with this one! It has literally changed my life since I've started experimenting with living more in accordance with my chart. I can't believe it took me so long to find out about it, considering how much I'm into anything woo. HD blends eastern and western esoteric arts (astrology, I Ching, Kabbalah, and the chakra system) and basically gives you a road map back to embodying your true self.
Gemini season is a perfect time to share this info with you. Ruled by the messenger Mercury, Gemini is all about information exchange and wants to soak up as much knowledge as possible, going down every rabbit hole.
This is a very brief, very basic overview of each Energy type, so if any of this resonates with you, I strongly encourage going further into the vortex! Your "type" just tells you the way to interact with the world to your highest benefit, but going beyond these basic categories, each chart is as unique as you are.
Get your free chart here, and you'll need to know the same info that gives you your astrological birth chart-- date of birth, place of birth, & exact time of birth. Your chart will have tons of information, but for now we're just looking at your AURA TYPE.
Generators make up most of the population and are the engines of the world, fueling the world with their energy. Generators, your main purpose is to do what lights you up, what you feel passionate about. Give your energy to those activities, but be careful of getting sucked into people-pleasing tasks that drain your energy, because when you're tired and cranky and running on fumes, we can all feel it. Your best strategy in the world is to wait to RESPOND. You don't need to chase life because what you need will come to you, and your job is to respond based on what your body wants, not necessarily what your brain is telling you to do. Listen to your body, not your mind. (That actually applies to everyone, our bodies are usually way smarter than our brains.)
A type of Generator, Manifesting Generators can feel like they're all over the place, getting excited about one thing, then after a few weeks it's on to the next. THIS IS OK, you're not being indecisive, it's what you're meant to do. Follow those passions!
Manifestors have a "repellant" aura, which sounds super harsh, but it's an amazing thing because it really separates your people from those who will just take your energy and waste your time. You're like a magnet with two poles-- your energy draws in what you need while keeping out the riffraff that doesn't serve you. Manifestors are really the only energy type here to INITIATE, and like the name implies, are amazing at bringing their ideas to fruition. When you get excited about something, act on it!! You're being guided to do it for a reason. You're here to make waves, so don't be shy about sharing your gifts!!
Projectors are non-energy beings, which means we (yeah, Projector here!) don't have our own renewable source of energy. We aren't meant to hustle or work 10-hour days. (In fact, Projectors ideally should work 2-4 hours a day and get plenty of rest.) We make up a small percentage of the population and are a relatively new type, while the world is based on Energy types like Generators. This can lead to Projectors feeling pressured to keep up with that energy output and live according to societal conditioning, vs their true selves. Projectors are meant to be guides, because we're able to view the energy flow of situations. We can see the bigger picture. We can easily come across as bossy or know-it-alls because we think we know the best way to do things, BUT if we share our views without being invited, people will just get very turned off. So, the best way for Projectors to exchange energy with the world is to WAIT FOR THE INVITATION. Before sharing your guidance, or making any major life decision, the key is to wait for the opportunity to come to you in order to avoid bitterness at not being recognized for your gifts.
Reflectors are the unicorns of Human Design, they are few and far between. Reflectors, when living their design, are blank slates, a reflection of society. Reflectors act as mirrors to those who come into contact with them, and are able to see the world through their eyes. This gives Reflectors great insight into the world as a whole, while most people find it very difficult to see beyond the mechanics of themselves. It's important to wait before making any major decisions so you can complete an entire lunar cycle-- 28 days. I know, sounds bananas, but if there's a tiny part of you that's intrigued by this, give it some experimentation.
For more info, I HIGHLY recommend listening to any podcast featuring my Human Design queen Jenna Zoe, and she also has a section of her website (appropriately titled The Rabbit Hole) with mini-readings for each Energy type. I also love John's videos over at humandesignhawaii on YouTube. (And at some point, I'll have a few offerings of my own that incorporate Human Design, so stay tuned for that!)
UPDATE: I was just introduced to Charlie Maginness' videos and they're so amazing, especially if you're a Projector!
