The Oligarchies……Part 2 | Human Design

The Oligarchies......Part 2 Recep Tayyip Erdogan was born into the Personal Life Theme of Planning, a particular Incarnation Theme that may deliver its holder into a form of schizophrenia if they are not really watchful and clear in their motivations. This potential form of schizophrenia exists because the “Planner” is not only constrained to plan for their own interests but also for the interests of their family, community, associates and everyone with whom they relate closely and for whom they feel responsibility, willingly or not. For Erdogan it is almost as though he is trying to ride two horses at once.  The one horse he can control because he can tune into where he wants the horse to take him personally, but trying to guide the other horse can feel like a duty because he can see what is really going to bring the best benefits if only the horse will let him guide it towards those benefits.  So comes the question for Erdogan : “What do I have to do to let me guide this … [Read more...]

Of Sultans and Tzars …. and other Oligarchs | Human Design

The Oligarchies There is an ancient story you might have heard before…… that in a land far away there is a Mountain on whose slopes are inscribed the names of all the most famous leaders, kings, chiefs, sultans, conquerors, politicians, priests and others who have ruled over masses of people or subjugated vast territories. When they die, tradition requires each leader approach the Mountain’s keepers to have their name inscribed for glorious posterity on the Mountain’s walls. It is said that when Alexander the Great arrived at the sacred Mountain with all his thousands of generals, armies and followers, the head keeper expressed his great delight to have such an honored guest, and asked Alexander to wait for a few minutes so he could go make the necessary preparations for Alexander’s inscription. Several hours later, the head keeper returns and quietly whispers to Alexander if perhaps he would prefer to witness the inscription privately. “What do you mean?” asked Alexander. “I … [Read more...]

Relationships in the 21st Century: Part 4 | Human Design

The Royal Kidlets In a few previous installments of our blog, we’ve taken a look at the love relationships of the royal family. We saw that there is a large degree of “connectivity” between Prince Charles and Camilla. We saw that Prince William has definitions in his Design that make him prone to emotional mood swings, and that Kate Middleton’s unconscious Mercury in Line 4, Qualifying means that she is constantly stirring up any environment that might otherwise be dull and stale. In this week’s installment, we’re taking a look at the results of these relationships. Turning our attention to Little Prince George and Princess Charlotte, we’ll delve into their charts to see how these future rulers might behave once they take the throne—Spoiler Alert: They’re going to be a lot of fun to watch! Read More here. It is extremely difficult to imagine what the world will look like in 40 years when the two great-grandchildren to Queen Elizabeth of England arrive at ages when they might … [Read more...]

Relationships in the 21st Century: Part 3 | Human Design

William and Katherine++   Some relationships are more visible to the world than others, and we all have our perceptions as to what is actually going on in any partnership or family, particularly behind the public image and glamor. Recently married and now with a growing family, Prince William and Princess Katherine of Cambridge are very much in public view, and their partnership has shown a continuing dramatic shift in attitude for a “Royal,” who is in line to the throne of England and to be King over his “subjects,” to marry a “commoner.” In this article we will look at William and Kate’s individual Designs and then their partnership chart.  IN our next newsletter, we will also have a look at Prince George and Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana’s Designs to get an idea of what is coming in the next round of English royalty! Prince William is born into the Personal Incarnation Theme of Love, something that is very apparent in the way he appears to conduct himself in … [Read more...]

Relationships in the 21st Century | Human Design Charts for Relationships

Love and Being in Love Many languages carry the description equivalent to "falling in love." What is it that takes place when you are suddenly overtaken by this amazing sense of recognition? Do some chemicals get loosed inside making you behave strangely, or is there some truth to the tale that Cupid has shot you with one of his magical arrows? Are you bound to "fall," or is there ever the possibility you might "rise in love?" The honest answer is that although there have been myriad attempts to explain love; romantic love remains a mystery to us all. With Human Design, there are several clear indications as to what is actually going on between two people. Relationships can be clearly seen whether they be love relationships, family, or business relationships. In this article, I examine how we can simply and easily bring harmony and fulfillment to all our relationships. Human Design works from the premise that we do not come here to suffer; we come here to be, and to express … [Read more...]

How Your Human Design Affects Your Health – Part 3

Life is not a success story, nor is it a tragedy story, either. It is a journey during which there are many instances of potential delight and many of seeming calamity. How we view our life depends entirely on our point of view and our perspective. Every instance in life has at least two potential outlooks, every debate at least two sides.  It is up to us whether we choose to qualify something as good, or bad……or, we have the possibility to accept what happens without judging it. At this time in our evolution we have arrived at a point in the post-information age where we can no longer hold onto and assimilate all the facts and information that are available to us. We are blinded by comparisons, countless details, factoids and half-truths until often we can barely function if we allow ourselves to come to a state of overwhelming mental exhaustion.   When this happens, the indication is that we are over-using our brains in a vain attempt to make the right decisions for ourselves in … [Read more...]

How Your Human Design Affects Your Health – Part 2

In Part One of this series, we started a discussion about how your Human Design affects your health with an explanation of defined and undefined center and the Heart or Willpower Center. Now we are going to continue our journey through the Centers and look how they correlate to certain aspects of our body and health. The Solar Plexus, the Emotional Center Emotions rule the world. Whoever gets the most upset, has the most power, since the rest of us will immediately try anything to calm them down, knowing that if we don’t, there will be consequences. The emotions are extraordinarily powerful and can be said to be linked for all wars, domestic strife, rage, and fighting, as well as digestive issues, addictions of all sorts, breathing disorders, immune disorders, and perhaps even autism.   Babies learn very early that if they require something, want some attention, they merely have to throw a tantrum to get results. It is inevitable that we all suffer some degree of emotional … [Read more...]

How Your Human Design Affects Your Health – Part 1

Good health is not a guarantee for us, even though the human being is an incredibly resilient and versatile species. Our bodies can survive and prosper in all kinds of diverse environments; eat and digest an enormous spectrum of foods and liquids. Yet, we can still be prone to disease. The implication of the word 'dis-ease' is that we are made to feel uncomfortable within our body when we allow certain anomalies (viruses or harmful bacteria, for example) to penetrate its working mechanism. Many older people, when asked what are the greatest qualities of life, will always say that health is the most important thing. Guarding and nourishing our health is of primary importance. So keeping anomalies at bay is a very worthwhile endeavor. This article is not written from a medical point of view, neither from a Western perspective, which is a medical system that has evolved in large part from a military presence on battlefields, nor an Eastern perspective, which has evolved from a … [Read more...]

Signs of the Times

Beyond politics and politicians, religions and priests, tycoons and servants, feast and famine, there is a current that is always running in the Universe...which runs according to the laws of the Universe. Within these laws are patterns and timings that affect everyone on the Earth.  In Human Design, we have decoded many of these patterns. And among them are what we call the Incarnation Themes. There are 112 of these Themes and each of us, at the moment of our birth, take on one of these Themes that runs as an undercurrent throughout our lifetime. It is a little like the theme music that plays in the background of a movie, or the common themes that run through many books. In our lifetime and knowing our Human Design, we can register for ourselves what our own particular Life Theme is, and watch it playing its part in everything we do, regardless of our Human Design Type, Authority, or Profile. However, in the events of the world, it is possible to see these Themes playing … [Read more...]

In-spiration

In our early days as a child, we are thrilled and moved by almost anything that catches our attention, especially those things we have to stretch to reach. We can walk around gazing upwards at the sky, wondering what it is that draws our attention there in the clouds and among the stars. It is easy for us to be moved by almost anything because of its newness, and yet, as we get older, much of the excitement wears off, and those aspects of life that were so in-spiring lose their appeal and interest for us. It is almost as though we convince ourselves that we have understood life, and that our earlier quest has been dismissed as unnecessary. The reality is that no one understands what life is.  No one.  And if we insist on keeping our attention towards what we think we know about ourselves and our lives, then our horizons become limited and our sense of wonder diminishes.  We start relying on our mind and our thinking patterns that can only relate to past instances, borrowed … [Read more...]
