Incarnation Cross of Obscuration

Hunter S. Thompson, Richard Branson and A.J. Foyt were all born under the Incarnation Cross of Obscuration. People born to this cross can get lost trying to understand some interest, passion or passing fancy. Being lost in something is not a negative thing. It can have both negative or positve side effects.
Take A.J Foyt and his passion for racing. A.J. got so lost in his passion that he was the first person to win the Indianapolis 500 4 times. According to Wikipedia he is the only driver to win the Indianapolis 500, the Daytona 500, the 24 hours of Daytona and the 24 hours of Le Mans. You could say he was driven to really know racing in many different forms and types of race cars.

Richard Branson is probably most famous for starting Virgin Records and Virgin Atlantic Airways. He has made numerous attempts to set world records. Some of these have been to break the speed records of sailing from one place to another. His most notable was an attempt to circumnavigate the world in a hot air balloon. You might say he is trying to reach for the unreachable.

Hunter S. Thompson is an author and known for a variety of writings including including Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Where the Buffalo Roam and the Rum Diaries. Early in his career he spent a year riding around with the Hell’s Angels Motorcycle gang documenting their existence. His works often took a deep but obscure focus on the subject at hand. He is portrayed in his movies as a lush, obsessed in alcohol and drugs. Was this just a foggy obscuration of his reality?

Here are the gate names, the I Ching names, followed by brief descriptions for the 4 gates of the cross of Wishes.

  • Gate 3 – Ordering – Difficulty in the Beginning – Once we make change or mutate we must finish the change into a new form of structure.
  • Gate 50 – Values – the Cauldron – Preservation which is achieved by the act of nurturing.
  • Gate 61 – Mystery- Inner Truth – The energy and pressure to know why.
  • Gate 62 – Small details – Preponderance of the small. This is the energy to put a name on things so we can analyze them..

Here are charts for Hunter Thompson, Richard Branson and A.J. Foyt who were born under the cross of Obscuration. The four gates of the cross of Obscuration are circled in blue on the chart for Hunter Thompson.

Incarnation Cross of Rulership

What does Dr. House have to do with 911 and Osama bin Laden?  Both Hugh Laurie, who plays the part of Dr. House on the TV show House and Osama bin Laden were born under the cross of Rulership. People born under the Incarnation cross of Rulership are here to rule their kingdom whatever that is. In the simplest form it could be a person who is a model of self rulership. In it’s most dynamic form it could be someone who is out to rule the world or at least change the ruling order.

In the show House, Dr House rules his kingdom and/or the hospital and those around him. He pokes, prods, teases and manipulates everyone around him to try and get it to be his way. Even his on going battle with his gimpy leg,  he has seldom asked for help as he attempts to rule his body as well.

On a much larger scale there is Osama bin Laden. As you  see in the charts below, not only was Osama born under the cross of Rulership, but the day of his planned attack to change world order, September 11, 2001, was carrying the activated energy of the cross of Rulership. I think this is an example of how the energy “behind the scenes” was carrying the events that took place in our reality.

Here are the gate names, the I Ching names, followed by brief descriptions for the 4 gates of the cross of Rulership.

  • Gate 45 – Gatherer – Gathering Together – This is the gate of the King and Queen. Energy that wants to rule their kingdom big or small
  • Gate 26 – Egoist – the Taming Power of the Great – There is a great duality in this energy and on one side is to accumulate, and amass wealth and the other is to guide others and the collective to efficient accumulation and storage of material .
  • Gate 22 – Openness – Grace – This is the energy to openly share emotional experiences with others. This is a gate of being social.
  • Gate 47 – Realizing – Oppression – This is abstract thinking and the energy to fit all the pieces of the puzzle together or filter out the one nugget from the mass of data that makes sense. There is a lot of pressure in this process.

Here are charts for Hugh Laurie and Osama bin Laden who were born under the cross of Rulership. Also there is a chart of September 11, 2001 which shows the energy of the cross of Rulership was activated that day. The four gates of the cross of Rulership  are circled in blue on the chart for Hugh Laurie. (Click on any image for Larger version of that image.)

* Note – The birth time of Hugh Laurie is not publicly known. Charts for his birth date are all cross of Rulership and the defind centers are the same. His profile could be a 3-6 or 4-6 depending on what time he was actually born.

Incarnation Cross of Healing

Sandwiched in between the cross of the Vessel of Love and the cross of Service is the Incarnation cross of Healing. This cross essentially brings a blend of the two sets of energies, of love and of being of service. The net result is energy that lovingly, brings joy to life.

The cross of Healing is a left angel cross. People born on right angel crosses are going to be more self absorbed in their journey. People born on the left Angel cross are going to be oriented to the other people that share their journey. It is not about the impact to themselves but the impact to all those who are involved.

Will Smith was born under the cross of Healing. If you look at some of his movies like, Men in Black I & II, Hitch and The Pursuit of Happiness, you see intertwined themes of love and bringing joy to life. In the MIB movies, there is universal love for humans and aliens mixed in with a goal to save earth. This ultimately brings joy to life for humanity and the universe. In the Pursuit of Happiness, Will portrays a man with down and out luck, trying to rebuild his life and keep he and his son together. In Hitch, Smith plays a relationship expert trying to help men get the love of their life to fall into love with them. In the movie, he too finds himself in the middle of his own fight to land the love of his life. So  while cross of Healers are interested in the joy of others they are not selfless and are in pursuit of their own happiness as well. Hmm, that sounds familiar.

Chaka Kahn spreads her healing through her music. She has won 10 Grammy awards during her career and if you listen to her songs like, I’m every woman and I feel for you, you hear this rhythmic but caring sentiment. On Wikipedia it quotes Kahn as being happy about the evolution of music proliferation and the ability for individuals to download music because it breaks the monopolistic hold on music by the big record labels. More joy to life for everyone!

Christopher Reeve is also of the cross of Healing incarnation. Who can forget his courageous march before the public eye to bring awareness to the plight and battle that paralyzed people go through every day. Through 5 years of  private and public  efforts to regain his ability to walk, he has potentially helped to heal and motivate thousands of families going through similar circumstances. In addition, his efforts may well benefit people of the future through his speaking before congress about the promise of stem cell research. In the end, although he eventually lost his life to the progression of illness from his injury, I believe he and his design were instrumental in healing his family and himself from the trauma of breaking his neck falling off a horse.

Here are the gate names, the I Ching names, followed by brief descriptions for the 4 gates of the cross of Healing.

  • Gate 25 – Spirit of Self – Innocence – This is an energy of love with no judgement. It is universal love.
  • Gate 46 – Determination of the Self – Pushing Upward – This is a gate of love and the love is of the flesh, of the body. Love of the body which is a temple that we dwell in.
  • Gate 58 – Aliveness – Joyous – This is bringing joy to life through the use of a great product or an efficient process.
  • Gate 52 – Inaction – Keeping Still – By being still, one can take in the bigger picture creating more depth to what you are trying to bring into focus.

Here are charts for Will Smith, Chaka Kahn and Christopher Reeve, all born under the cross of Healing. The four gate of the cross of Healing are circled in blue on the chart for Will Smith. (Click on any image for Larger version of that image.)

Incarnation Cross of Service

People born under the cross of Service are here to be of Service. In a sense it is that simple. The real question is what are they serving? For some it may be to be of service to themselves. For others they may be driven to serve their audience, their community or their country. Being of service can take on any level of action from acting, to shining shoes, to being a mom, to fighting in an army.

The driving force in the cross of Service is logical energy that is looking to make things or processes better to bring joy to life. Ultimately this is what the cross of service is all about, bringing joy to life. A good question a person born under the cross of Service can ask themselves before fulling investing in a project is, “If I am successful at this will it bring joy to life?”.

The main reason for this “Joy to Life” theme is that 3 of the 4 gates are in the logical channel. Logic in human design is all about analysis of things and processes to make them better. When they are made better it results in more satisfaction or more efficiency allowing us more time to enjoy life.

Denzel Washington is a cross of service. In many of his movies he portrays a good guy trying to get to the bottom of a problem or situation to resolve things to make it better for the collective. Two such recent movies were the Taking of Pelham One Two Three and The book of Eli. In Pelham he plays a subway dispatcher when he gets drawn into to acts as a negotiator on a kidnapping scheme master minded by John Travolta. Throughout the role he exudes trying to be of service to get John Travolta what he wants while trying to save the hostages. In the book of Eli, he plays a blind man traveling in an apocalyptic world with the last known copy of the bible. His mission is to get it to a place where it is safe and can be replicated to reseed the word of God. In both movies, both roles are perfect for the cross of Service. I believe Denzel is so believable because he carries the underlying energy of Service to support his acting talent.

Sarah Jessica Parker is also a cross of Service. In her role as Carrie Bradshaw in the TV series and movies Sex in the City, she plays a journalist trying to be of Service to give her readers, mainly women, advise about sex, romance and love in the fast paced world of New York. In life Sarah provides service as a mother, director, producer and actor. In a recent Marie Claire interview she talked about how she is judged at times unfairly. A publication ran an article about how she used her status to get out of jury duty despite her vehemently denying it. In fact she went on to talk about how deeply she cares about a lot of things saying ” I think I care because I care. I’ve been on movie sets where people were just going through the motions. I don’t ever want to be one of those people who doesn’t want to be there.” In just going through the motions there is not much joy in life and for most people born under the cross of Service that just won’t fly.

Olivia Newton-John was famous in the 70’s and 80’s for here singing. While she still has pursued a singing career she is more recently known for her advocacy for UNICEF, Breast Cancer and to build a wellness center in Australia.

Here are the gate names, the I Ching names, followed by brief descriptions for the 4 gates of the cross of Service.

  • Gate 17 – Opinion – Following – This is the presentation of logical analysis of what is or is not working.
  • Gate 18 – – Correction – Work on what has been spoilt – This is the logical adjustments to process or things  to make them better.
  • Gate 58 – Aliveness – Joyous – This is bringing joy to life through the use of a great product or an efficient process.
  • Gate 52 – Inaction – Keeping Still – By being still, one can take in the bigger picture creating more depth to what you are trying to bring into focus.

Here are charts for Denzel Washington, Sarah Jessica Parker and Olivia Newton-John, all born under the cross of Service. The four gate of the cross of Service are circled in blue on the chart for Denzel. (Click on any image for Larger version of that image.)

Incarnation – Cross of Laws

The Incarnation cross of Laws is focused upon building, creating and keeping structures in place to ensure safety and continuity. The laws can pertain to the structure of anything from a family to money, to an international community. Without structure there can become chaos and lack of order so structure has played and important role in creating community, countries and civilizations.

However, there is an interesting dynamic at work here because most structures resist change. Instead of mutation most structural change comes through a new layer of rules or laws. The tax code in the United States and Health care reform are two prime examples of this. Over the past decades instead of recreating the structure, our politicians have just added layers of new law upon the old. In the case of the tax law, even though there have been candidates that have proposed eliminating the old system with a new straight percentage graduated system, they have been dismissed mostly out of hand as there is fear that removing the old structure would lead to chaos.

(The Mandala to the left is of the cross of Laws and can help you understand how crosses are formed. Click on the image to the left to enlarge it. This will allow you to see how the cross is formed. The cross is created by the gates of the I Ching in the Sun and Earth, from the two critical points in time, the time of birth and 88 days before birth which is the point when the soul crystal is planted.)

Here is a brief description of the 4 gates of the cross of Laws.

  • Gate 3 – Ordering – Once we make change or mutate we must finish the change into a new form of structure.
  • Gate 50 – Values – Preservation which is achieved by the act of nurturing.
  • Gate 60 – Acceptance/Limitation – We must accept what we have got and limit changes so not to rock the boat.
  • Gate 56 – Sensation/Wanderer – The perception of continuity of what we are sensing as we explore what is around us.

So quite simply, people born under the cross of Laws are here to keep us safe, help provide continuity and structure. A key strategy for someone on this cross is to strive for balance between the old and the new. Structures serve there purpose but they cannot last forever. A cross of Laws may be a parent but the child eventually grows up and then the structure must change one way or the other.

Introduction to Human Design

Click on chart for larger image.

Human Design is a blueprint of the energetic wiring of this physical body that you were born into. The design determines your potential expressions in terms of consistency and variability. The main aspect of your design is represented in a chart as pictured below. The areas that are colored will tend to be consistent expressions of the qualities associated with that part of the chart. The white areas will be variable or inconsistent expression of the qualities of those ares of the chart.

There are 5 major categories or types that a design falls into. Based on your type there is a high level strategy that you can use to optimize your designs interaction in the world. The 5 types and strategies are …

  • Manifesting Generator – Respond, envision, reprocess, inform, act
  • Generator – wait to respond
  • Projector – wait to be invited
  • Manifestor -Inform whom your actions will impact
  • Reflector – wait your cycle for clarity

By following these high level strategies you can work with the universal dynamic energies flowing through you and the universe around you to create the experience and situations you were meant to encounter.

Each design has two aspects of of personality that drives an individual to act in certain ways. Human Design classifies this as your profile. Under the profile section in your chart you will see two numbers. The numbers, often called lines correlate to the following personality traits.

  • 1 – Is the drive to investigate and find out foundational knowledge about the things that affect you
  • 2 – Is the drive to have quiet or alone time on a regular basis to help process and integrate life’s experience..
  • 3 – Is the drive to experiment and or experience different ways of doing things. It is from these that you learn how things work.
  • 4 – Is the drive to have foundation in relationships, jobs, school and or home. It is through this foundation that opportunities arise.
  • 5 – Is a magnetic force that pulls people toward you but can push them away. This is a projected energy and can be complex to understand and thus lead to misunderstanding or lack of clarity.
  • 6 – Is an energy that shifts focus through out your lifetime. In the early years it is experimental and inwardly focused, in the middle years it is aloof, observational and outwardly focused and beyond 50 years it is a role model energy that will help when deemed necessary.
