    What is Human Design?

    Human Design, an in-depth introspective tool that was first created in the 1980s, offers a refined perspective for self-discovery. Many even consider it a user manual for life, helping you to navigate the internal and external challenges of the day in perfect alignment with your true nature. 

    With such powerful self-understanding, people can actualize their potential, make smart decisions, improve relationships, and stop feeling overwhelmed.

    To get your free human design chart, simply add your birth date, time, and location online at the Jovian Archive.

    What Is Human Design?

    Much like astrological birth charts, Human Design is a system based on your exact time, date, and place of birth, but it further incorporates your dominant chakras to create your personalized body graph.  

    Together, these elements create a synthesis of the esoteric and exoteric systems to give a graphical depiction of the forces at work, imprinting us and influencing our experience of the world. It's how we experience and respond to the world. 

    All that’s needed is your birthday, time of birth, and location of birth, and experts can offer a surprising insight. It all starts with what is known as a bodygraph, and it can help you understand how you are designed to engage with the world and where you are susceptible to your environment, influence, and conditioning.

    What Is a Bodygraph?

    A bodygraph is an important part of the Human Design chart, a graphic illustration that explains your energetic flow, showing the way you operate and interact naturally. It is situated within a Rave Mandala, which includes the I’Ching, Western Zodiac, Sephirot of the Kabbalah, hexagrams, and the chakra system. 

    The bodygraph shows a person’s definitions, which are the colored areas of the chart, and their openness, which is anything left white. Definitions remain consistent throughout life and explain who someone is as a person. Openness unveils areas where someone is susceptible to conditioning. When this conditioning occurs, it can result in a state known as “Not-Self.”

    What Is a Human Design Chart?

    A human design chart is more than just the bodygraph. On the chart to the right of the bodygraph is a collection of numbers in black next to the symbols of the planets. These calculations outline the different characteristics of a personality. People are consciously aware of these traits, leading them to believe this is who they are.

    The red column of the design chart is calculated using an 88-degree rotation of the sun, spanning approximately 89 days before the moment of birth. These numbers outline the characteristics of body consciousness and the nature of the unconscious. 

    By learning about the previously unrealized elements of your identity, it’s possible to better determine your decisions and actions. 

    What Is the Intent?

    Human Design is a tool for living authentically. By learning more about the true self, it is possible to de-condition, or let go of, those parts of your personality that are inconsistent with your true nature. 

    With this knowledge, you can make better choices, live in alignment with your best self, and create authority in your life in a fulfilling and powerful way.

    A Closer Look: Human Design Types and Strategies

    There are four different types of Human Design, and every person fits into one of the types. They are: 


    Generators make up about 70% of the population, and their main strategy is to respond. They have an open and enveloping aura, and their signature is satisfaction. When they are operating as their Not-Self, they are frustrated. It is wise for generators to learn more about themselves.


    Projectors consist of about 20% of the population. Their strategy is to wait for the invitation to find success and avoid bitterness. Their auras are focused and absorbing, and their goal is to learn about and understand others.


    These people make up about 9% of the population, and their strategy is to inform. They seek peace but can act in anger when they are in their Not-Self. They have a closed and repelling aura, and their goal is to understand their impact on others.


    The final type represents just 1% of the population, and their strategy is to wait for an entire lunar cycle before making a decision. This helps them to find clarity and surprises in life while avoiding disappointment. They tend to have a resistant and sampling aura, which allows them to learn to reflect rather than identify.

    Understanding the Different Authority Types

    The Human Design Generator also provides a look at the different authority types. Authority types let people know if something is right for them. There are two different types.

    Inner Authority

    Many people think they make decisions with their minds, but that is rarely the case. Inner Authority is shown in the chart in one of the following locations:

    • Solar Plexus
    • Sacral
    • Splenic
    • Ego and Self
    • Mental Projector and Reflector

    By understanding these internal signatures, people can make proper use of their energy, finding greater success, peace, or surprise.

    Outer Authority

    Humans are social beings, and each person has a unique perspective on life that comes from the wisdom and insights they’ve gained from their experiences. Outer Authority provides a way to be of the highest service to others by communicating at the right time and with the right intention. 

    Combined with the Definitions, Profiles, Incarnation Cross, and other elements of the Human Design Chart, this provides powerful information for self-understanding.

    Human Design: What’s Next?

    To benefit from the tools of Human Design, start by downloading a bodygraph. Then, to interpret it further and live a more fulfilling life, work with a certified professional who is trained to provide practical guidance for the future.
