Understanding your Human Design

Human Design is a system that combines principles of astrology, the I Ching, Kabbalah and the chakra systems, to create a comprehensive map of an individual’s personality, strengths, weaknesses and life path. 

Your Human Design (also know as Body Graph) is your energetic blueprint that identifies your dominant chakras and energy types to help you approach life holistically. Much like astrological birth charts, Human Design is a system based on your exact time, date and place of birth. 

Your chart provides guidance on how to access your body’s consciousness. The results indicate who you are as a unique individual to assist in decision making and, ultimately, help you find your true self. Learning about your human design can provide you with valuable insight and understanding about your personality, strengths, weaknesses and life path.

“Human Design offers a new way of looking at ourselves and the world, and provides a practical tool for living in alignment with our true nature.”

– Karen Curry Parker.

Aspects of Human Design

While each Human Design Chart is unique, understanding the components that build a chart are important to understanding what you are meant to learn.

During your Human Design Reading, we will review your specific chart and explain the various elements and how they relate to your life. Depending on the level of reading you choose for yourself, there is so much to learn. An introductory (Level 1) reading with us includes information about your Energy Type, Strategy, Authority, Profile, Signature, Not-Self Theme and Energy Centers. 

Let’s review a bit more about Energy Type, Strategy, Authority, and Profile as they are critical building blocks to your design.

Energy Types

There are five energy types in Human Design, each with its own unique characteristics and strategies:


Manifestors have a powerful, independent energy and are designed to be self-directed.

Generator: Generators have a strong life force energy and are designed to work hard and consistently.

Manifesting Generator: Manifesting Generators are designed to be multi-passionate and use their energy to create and build in a way that is aligned with their unique interests and passions.

Projector: Projectors have a natural talent for understanding people and systems, and are designed to be effective leaders and managers.

Reflector: Reflectors have a gift for seeing things from many different perspectives, and are designed to be wise, impartial advisors.


These basic definitions are just a small example of all there is to learn about your Type. Understanding your Type can help you make decisions with greater clarity, create more harmonious relationships, and experience greater personal growth and fulfillment.


Strategy refers to the specific approach or guidance for making decisions and navigating life that is tailored to each individual’s unique Type. Each of the five Energy Types in Human Design has its own strategy:

  • Inform before taking action 
  • Wait to respond
  • Respond before taking action
  • Wait for recognition and invitation
  • Wait for a lunar cycle

By following your unique strategy, you can live in alignment with your natural energy and avoid common pitfalls. They say knowledge is power and knowing how to approach situations in your life can be invaluable to ensuring you reach your preferred or desired outcome.


Authority refers to the unique decision-making process that is specific to your design. It is the way in which you are designed to access and trust your inner guidance and make decisions that are in alignment with your true nature.

There are several different types of authority, including:


Emotional: refers to the way in which an individual’s emotions provide them with guidance and insight into decision-making.

Splenic: based on the individual’s intuition and gut instincts.

Sacral: refers to the way in which a gut response (a “yes” or “no” feeling) guides an individual in decision-making.

Ego: based on an individual’s sense of self-worth and integrity.

Self: designed to make decisions based on their own authority and perspective.

Lunar: designed to make decisions based on the lunar cycle and the reflections of others.


By following your authority, you can access your inner guidance and make decisions with greater clarity, confidence, and trust.


A profile refers to a specific aspect of your design that provides insight into your life path and purpose!
It is calculated based on the positions of the two central channels (the conscious and unconscious Sun) in the individual’s design. Your profile consists of two numbers. The first number represents your conscious Sun, while the second number represents your unconscious Sun. Each number is associated with a specific archetype or role, which provides insights into the individual’s personality, strengths, and challenges.

There are a total of twelve different profiles, each with its own unique combination of archetypes and characteristics. 

Understanding your profile can provide valuable insights into your life path and purpose, as well as your strengths, challenges, and potential areas for growth. It can help you align with your true nature and live a more fulfilling and authentic life.

Benefits of Learning your Human Design

Ultimately, a Human Design Reading is a tool for self-discovery and self-improvement, helping you gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your unique path in life.

It can be a powerful tool for personal growth and transformation, providing insight and guidance for those looking to live a more authentic and fulfilling life.
