Joe Biden President Elect of the United States

Joe Biden is President elect of the United States. Here is a look at his Human Design and how that will influence and affect his efforts during his Presidency.

He is the incarnation cross of Contagion. Contagions are here to spread things or to get them to catch on. It will be interesting to see if his enthusiasm to bring the divided country together will catch on or fall flat. He has some powerfully emotional energies to amplify his messages with gate 55 of Spirit and the gate 30 the clinging fire.

He has an abstractly wired mind with the 64-47 channel, which has the potential to fit various people together on a team or committee or to fit different ideas together to create a more widely acceptable approach.

He has a defined identity through the 29-46 channel of saying yes and then sticking to the commitment. But the duality in this channel can sometimes mean giving up. He also carries the gates 14 and 44 which both carry elements of being able to identify what resources are needed and manage the allocation or use of those resources.

His throat as we have seen in the debates may be a challenge at times. He stuttered as a child and I would speculate that might have been in part due to the design in and around the throat. While his throat is undefined, he has 5 defined gates and the gate 43 reaching down toward the throat. Imagine all of these gates having something different to say. As a contagion he can’t help but say them all to spread their message. But those messages need to come together to be cohesive and coherent. The gate 43 puts pressure to express something he knows, but this is individual knowing which can be hard to explain to others. All this could lead to a bit of a struggle to express himself. He will likely do better, with rehearsed speeches, similar to the acceptance speech he gave Saturday night, that allow all of the things he has to say to be blended and polished.

He has a completely open will and at times he may have self-doubt, it is probably a benefit that he has a strong wife, Dr. Jill first lady elect, and his family to support him. His root is also undefined, so he is going to feel pressure to get a lot of things started and completed.  It is not surprising he has already put together a transition team and a Covid-19 task force. How will he do if he gets push back from the senate or congress?

His undefined Solar Plexus leaves him open to be influenced by emotional events and situations. But the defined gate 55 of spirit and 30 of clinging fire should be able to transform the emotion to the passion ruled by his Contagion cross.

As a 4-6 profile in the later stages of being a role model, he will likely exhibit the leadership that you would expect from a veteran politician.

Overall, Joe Biden has a lot of elements in his design that support his new job as President, but the proof will be in the execution of office over the next four years.

One Size Does Not Fit All

We are often led to believe that if we do things a certain way that there is the magic formula. There is also a common belief that if we put our mind to it or if we just focus, we can do IT! In some cases that may be true. But if we examine the world through our Human Design, we begin to see that it is probably not true, that one size does not fit all and certainly one approach is not the best approach.

Human Design is the art and science of differentiation. When we look at our design, we can clearly see that we are all wired very differently and because of this we all need to use the processes or take the approaches that best suits our design.

Take for example Tony Robbins, a motivational speaker and coach. Now I will confess I have not taken any of his courses and only listened to a bit of some of his pitches. But I do sense an undertone of that one size fits all mentality. I am sure he has many great ideas and suggestions. But I do think from a Human Design perspective, his design pushes forward ideas and thoughts that work for people with a similar design as his.

When we look at his design, he has all four motors, Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus and Heart-Will connected directly to the Throat. So Tony, can push convince and motivate people to:

  • Get Going! (Root)
  • Just Do it! (Sacral)
  • Really want it! (Heart-Will)
  • Emotionally Obtain it! (Solar Plexus)

Most of us aren’t like that so we would need to modify those motivations or “pitches” because we are not wired to sustain the energy the way he does. Most people do not have all four motors defined and those that do, like me, do not have them connected to the throat. So while I can feel those 4 points mentioned above internally, I would need a modified strategy to use them to my best advantage or they would likely come out feeling flat to others or not be heard at all.

Additionally, Tony is heavily wired tribally. He has 3 important tribal channels, the 59-6, the 19-49 and the 37-40, which also happens to be part of his incarnation cross. He cannot help but push a tribal agenda in his expression. While that will work for some of us, not all of us are oriented to be tribal in our design so that is not our thing. For those not wired to the tribe, trying to be tribal will likely cause frustration if not hardship and dissatisfaction. Furthermore, part of his tribal energy, the 59-6, has sexual tones so he can also use that in his appeal. Not all of us have that.

Again, I am sure Tony has a lot of great ideas and tips. I think there are a lot of coaching and coaching models out there to help us with our relationships and our personal accomplishments. Some if not many may have very good exercises and processes for us to become a better version of ourselves. But as you read about or sign up for these programs or sessions, please keep in mind that the one size or method does not fit all. Take into account their coaching suggestions and compare that to your design and how you are wired to act and make decisions. By doing that you can make the most of what you are being taught and integrate it with how you are designed and who you are here to be so you can accomplish what you are here to do on this Earthly plain.

RBG – Ruth Bader Ginsburg

























I heard a radio lab podcast replay on the night RBG moved on from this world. The episode focused on a key trial in her career to get equal rights for women. From 1973 to 1976 she argued 6 cases of gender discrimination before the Supreme court, sometimes on behalf of women and sometimes for men. The case in focus on the podcast was actually two cases. She consulted on a case that represented men in Oklahoma and a woman who managed a drive through liquor store. At the time men in Oklahoma could not buy beer until they were 21 but women could buy beer at 18. The liquor store was next to Oklahoma State University and so the young men at the college would get the sorority girls to go buy beer for them.

The liquor store owner was trying to get the law changed and was represented by a somewhat stubborn male lawyer, who despite Ginsburg’s advice insisted on presenting the case to the Supreme court in his own way. His resulting experience in front of Supreme court did not go how he had planned. Yet somehow Ginsburg got on the Supreme court docket right after him on the same day for her case representing a woman in a discrimination case. Before the supreme court she was able to tie and weave these two cases together, and while they were both about discrimination, they were also very different in their details and aspect of the laws and how the constitution applied to them.

After I heard this, I was intrigued if I could see this in her design. I was not disappointed as sure enough once I ran her chart, I could see the core energies that not only helped her win this case but also helped shape her career to be that great judge that she was.


At the core of what I see, is she has a defined mind that is connected to the throat. These connections, give her consistency to deliver her thoughts and ideas with her voice and in writing her opinions. She has a lot of defined energy in the abstract circuitry (outlined in blue in the diagram below) and also a lot of defined energy in the logical circuitry (outlined in red). She has the gate 63 to focus doubt or attention of thought on a product, process or treatment of people as in this case. That circuit crosses over and she has the 17-62 channel which has opinions and infinitesimal details about that whatever is being discussed as well, all the while looking at it with a logical, step by step analysis.

But she also has the abstract circuitry which is putting the pieces of the puzzle together or grouping things that one might not logically think will fit together. She has the 64-47 channel to bring together the abstract and crossing over she has the gate 11 to tell the story of why or how those all go together.

In the cases cited by the podcast she had done just that, brought 2 cases before the supreme court that might not seem like they fit together but ultimately mesh and supported her cause that all people were equal or should be under the law regardless of their sex. She later went on to support other equality measures to combat gender discrimination.

An additional element of her design is her completely open identity center, which potentially gave her the ability to feel her defendants plight and later as a member of the supreme court put herself in others shoes. Also, she was the incarnation cross of Eden, so for each situation she contemplated whether abstractly or logically, she had the underlying emphasis of how could the outcome of the trial or ruling lead to a little part of Eden on earth, that beautiful garden that is peaceful, beautiful and supplies us with everything we need. I don’t think her dying request to wait until after the election to approve a replacement justice, was political. I think it was her design expressing itself as the right thing to do in Eden would be to let the people choose.

Will the real Ellen please stand up?

As I was watching Ellen DeGeneres on the Ellen Show the other day I started to contemplate the contrast of her behavior on her talk show verses her advertised other show Ellen’s Game of Games.

On the Ellen Show she is generally fun loving, dancing in the audience and chummy with the guests. She often gives away lots of prizes and gifts to the audience. I saw an episode where she sponsored an animal wildlife sanctuary and with the help of a sponsor. I think she sent them $10,000, and a ton of food for the animals.

Yet on her show Ellen’s Games of Games, she puts the contestants through all kinds of crap that could be seen as mean. She has contests where people get sprayed in the face with all kinds of messy stuff, drenched with water, blindfolded so they embarrass themselves and fall down and at the end 3 out of 4 people free fall from a very high height through a trap door when they get the question wrong and lose.

So just who is the real Ellen?

Will she please stand up!

(I’m not the only one asking this question. Joe MacLeod from the HMM daily seems to think she is Mean. Read More )

But I think it is more complicated than that and I was willing to wager that her Human Design would offer some clues.

So in looking at her design the first thing that stands out is she has a completely open G center. People with and open G can have an inconsistency in their identity.  For some it is more historical. The become a waitress, then a singer, then a mother, then a teacher etc. All in an attempt to uncover their real identity that has resonance for them. For others, like Ellen it can seem more variable in the moment. So there is an Ellen that can be sweet and generous and caring and there is an Ellen that can be wild and insulting and embarrassing and put people thru trauma. With the open G these can easily coexist and show there face periodically.

Looking at her design, it would appear the driving force in her “Meanness” is the gate 51 Shock. The 51 is all about waking people up or shaking people awake into a greater awareness and into Universal Love. Remember, in Human Design all of the energy is trying to reach the throat.  Look at the diagram below.


With Ellen’s design, if you follow her defined energy channels they are flowing like a river from Solar Plexus to her Root to her Spleen, where the Sacral energy also pours in and then to the Will and to the hanging gate 51. The 51 stretches toward her Identity and when it can, makes the jump of energy  to the Identity and then out the Throat into expression. The 51 potentially acts as capacitor, which builds up energy and then it allows it to shoot past. In this case shooting past with the flavoring of shock.

If we go back and look at the channels that feed this, there is the 28-38 which is struggle or the game of life. Hmmm… sounds fairly similar to Game of Games! I think behind her  games there is a provoking quality to look at life and these things you are trying or doing to your self.

Is the embarrassment, fear, humiliation worth the risk for the moment of fame and or money you might win?

Additionally, as Ellen is a 5th line which is projected energy. The platform of TV allows her to project this same message onto the viewers. Would I get shot in the face with goo, or dunked in water or drop from a height?

The mere thinking about it can make you wake up to the contemplation about life and risks and what exactly is the game of life that we play every day and what does it mean.

To me that is not Mean, it is an interesting contemplation that Ellen is giving us an opportunity to ponder.

So is Ellen Kind or Mean, I think she is both and many flavors in between and her open G leads the way for her to be this way.

A brief glimpse at the Human Design of the top 7 contenders for Democratic Presidential Primary 2020

Many of us are going to vote in the primaries next week as Super Tuesday rolls in or will be voting in the coming months. I will vote Tuesday but I have to say, I am still undecided at this point. Since I have been steeped in Human Design for the past 15 years I thought it would be worth while to look at what each candidates Design says about how they are wired to act and express themselves should they become the next President.

To keep this brief, for each candidate I will focus on the incarnation cross as I believe this is the platform we stand on for our life purpose. I will also include the profile as I feel, like spices, this energy flavors all of our expressions. Lastly I will add one or 2 other aspects I see in their design.  I will do my best to be objective, but we humans cannot prevent some filtering from occurring because we all have a design and look at the world through the lens of experiences that we have had. I will then close with a question. This may carry more of my opinion, but I am phrasing it as a question as maybe you too are wondering about that quality or thing within that candidate.

At the bottom of the post are links to the full Human Design report for each candidate.

Note – The birth times for Klobuchar, Steyer and Warren are unknown so the default is to use noon but mention the other possibilities I see for them during that day.

These reviews are in random order as I literally picked their names out of a hat.

Elizabeth Warren

Elizabeth Warren is supported by the cross of the Vessel of Love. So at the core of her energy is Love. It appears her focus of this love is to make sure every person gets a fair shake and corporations and other large entities need to act in a loving and compassionate way. If they don’t she is going to take it to them. Her design here is a 3-6 but since we do not know her time she could be a 3-5. Either way the 3rd line is about learning about life through trying things out, experimenting. She seems to have an air that says “I know this” as she speaks which is coming from the experience of her life. It is also possible if she was born in the first 3 1/2 hours of the day that she has the knowing channel in the mind which would further add to this “I KNOW” sentiment. Through her spleen to the Throat channel she is knowing in the moment. Her lead gate is gate of extremes(15) so she can come on as extreme or belabor a point to the extreme. Her Achilles heal in the design might be the hanging gate 36 which can cause  confusion or hesitation when faced with an unknown or new possible experience. She has the gate (7)  of leadership.

Is her perceived frustration due to the slowness and resistance to what she believes is the right thing to do, going to turn off voters or get in the way should she become the nominee and/or President?

Amy Klobuchar

Amy Klobuchar is supported by the Cross of Duality. Duality energy understands the art of being busy and using that energy to duplicate. So if there is a program or model of how to do things over here, then you can use that same model to do it over there. Amy would likely be good at focusing on things that are working in certain places and helping them spread. She is either a 5-1 or 5-2 profile. Here 5th line is projected and sophisticated. I don’t know if we will fully understand Amy until she is in the public eye for a much longer time. It just takes longer to get to know 5th lines. She has a complex single definition, which is a good thing as the energy can all communicate together, like voices in the choir coming together to express themselves in harmony. She does carry a lot of tribal energy to support, sustain and carry the tribe forward in a direction that is safe and sustainable. While she is  wired emotionally, which at times may take longer for her to respond, this is well balanced by the tribal energies which will help make it a decision that will support the tribe properly. She also has the gate (7)  of leadership.

What does “tribe” mean for her since it is an integral part of her design?

Pete Buttigieg

Pete Buttigieg is supported by the Cross of Laws. Laws are all about doing things a certain way so they are safe and sustainable. These are not necessarily literal laws but basic behaviors that are repeatable so we don’t run out of food and we stay safe and warm etc. There are times when laws need to be changed, but that is generally a slow and measured process so we don’t make mistakes. But since the cross does carry mutation, Pete should be able to make change happen at a certain pace with caution in hand. Pete is a 4-6 profile so his network is very important to him and presents him opportunities. His 6th line is on the roof so he may seem aloof or reserved at times. He has a split definition, where his 3 motors are wired to the spleen meaning he can get things done quickly when it is the right thing to do. His defined channel to the throat is the story or hi(story) teller so it explains why he often uses stories to illustrate his points. He will be best with policies if they have a good story that will help him be strong at supporting them. He has an open solar plexus which can be influenced or overwhelmed by drama if he doesn’t shield it but he appears to have a good handle on that.

While the cross of laws is stable, will it allow him to move forward in a timely manner while supporting a broad enough coalition, because laws do tend to be tribal in nature?

Bernie Sanders

Bernie Sanders is supported by the Cross of Dominion. Dominion is heavily influenced by the mind, gates 64 and 63. They want to ingest thoughts and ideas and consume them. This is the ability to ingest a lot of data. However this thought energy is not fully grounded in reality, it is more theoretical. Bernie is a 5-1 profile so he carries the magnetism that has fueled his popularity. His 1st line behind the scenes carries energy to investigate and get to the detail level on issues. He is a projector here to guide and lead through his will to the identity. This means he will do what Bernie wants to do as he identifies with that cause or issue. His main channel is from the heart. With the heart as his only motor and his recent heart trouble, it does give me concern. The heart needs to work to rest. Will the demand of the oval office allow for that? He has the leadership gate (31) that is a social leader so it is no surprise socialism is a main theme.

Are the thoughts and ideas Bernie is pushing grounded enough to be achievable without mass disruption in the USA? 

Mike Bloomberg

Mike Bloomberg is supported by the Cross of Contagion. Contagions are here to spread ideas and things that they are passionate about. Mike has a 2-4 profile which makes him a social connector.  His 4th line is a net worker and opportunist while his 2nd line is a natural at picking things up be they ideas or concepts. Mike has a quadruple split definition which is comprised of four separate  groups of defined centers. Essentially it is like having 4 voices within you when you are in the moment. For Mike these voices are:  abstract thought – putting the pieces of the puzzle together;  rulership – what I want for me;   doing it – what I am going to do and get done; what’s it gonna be – the experience that I am passionate that we have.  On one hand a split definition can make a person more balanced as they have multiple perspectives on things. On the other hand it can take time for the voices to come together under pressure and maintain the full balance of all the voices. Mike also has the gate (31) of the social leader.

What is Mike passionate about and which of his voices am I hearing from?

Tom Steyer

Tom Steyer is supported by the Cross of Service. People on this cross are here to serve and be of service. When things are not of service it does not sit well with them. This is likely why Tom presents a focus of beating Donald Trump. In his mind Trump and his actions are not of Service. Tom started a hedge fund company that did very well but in 2004 began to get protests from Yale students about the environmental policies of some of the investments. Over time, Tom made a shift away from these investments and began funding and supporting environmental causes. So his support and talk about global warming seems based on the enlightenment where he realized taking care of the environment was very important to being of service to the greater good. Tom is either a 2-5 or 3-5 profile. The 5th line makes him complicated and harder to get to know. The 2nd line would explain why he said he was not going to run a year ago because for a 2-5 the limelight of running for president might be daunting. 2-5’s really need their down time. The 3rd line might explain the shift on the environment, when he saw that his investments were not working in conjunction with his service energy.

Have we really seen the full extent of Tom Steyer?

Joe Biden

Joe Biden is also supported by the Cross of Contagion. Joe is here to spread what he is passionate about. It would seem that his main thrust is ideas and policies that are a return to the old standard policies that were the focus of the Clinton and Obama presidencies.  I think that may be why his campaign seems to lack excitement. It is harder to spread excitement about something old and established. It is easier to generate energy and excitement for something shiny and new. As a 4-6 profile Joe is off the roof and into his role model phase. He also carries the gate (31) of the social leader and this is bolstered by his role model stage. His 4th line means he is a good at networking. Joe has a split definition with the his identity power by his sacral motor. This voice speaks about what he can do or what he has done. He also has a defined mind that will think abstractly on how things go together. His split in conjunction with several hanging gates on his throat are probably why he has been struggling to get the words right when he is speaking in the recent debates. Simply put the throat cannot keep up with his excitement behind the ideas or point he is trying to make. The split does create a potential dilemma in his decision making. Is the decision is coming from the mind or is it coming from what is right to do right now. From the Human Design perspective the mind is an adviser and should not make the decisions.

Does Joe represent the changes and policies you want from our next President?

Grande, Tall maybe a better idea?

Ariana Grande cancelled her tour show in Kentucky this past Sunday with emotional posts on social media. Grande stated that she was very sick with sinus and sore throat issues and trying to get well quickly but she was too sick to perform. She announced this publicly as she wanted fans to know ahead of time so it would not catch them off guard.

While any of us can get sick, Ariana as a projector has put herself in a risky spot with the ambitious tour that she is in the midst of. Her Sweetener Tour started in March and doesn’t end until late December. She has been preforming every 2 or 3 days since it started, making over 40 stops in the US and 19 stops in Europe. Additionally, Ariana is more of a spotlight performer, which I would think have to be more energetically demanding than even being a lead singer for a full band.

When we look at Ariana’s design, what stands out is she has only one motor, the root. While the root is connected to adrenaline, the root is a pulse motor and needs to rest. When the root shuts off, Ariana is likely to have low or no energy. Ariana may be boosting her root with caffeine, I mean how could she not with a name like Grande, but over time the root and adrenals get worn down and with her tough demanding schedule she could be in for a big crash.

It’s not that projector can’t be out there and do energetic demanding things. But they are better served to be very wise about their strategy. On paper, according to her design, she would be better off with shorter tours, more days off in between shows, or recovery weeks where she has no shows. From the descriptions of the tour it has grown from the original plans and that maybe be a cost of being the hot ticket, but ultimately strategy would be beneficial for the long term.

As a cross of Service, Ariana is wired to be loyal to her fans as she wants to serve them so it is understandable she was upset in cancelling the show. The Cross of Service is all about delivering joy to life, so to cancel a much anticipated concert is no joy to a fan. Additionally, her undefined will may question if she is worthy of their love and that question of her fans could be hard for the total open Identity to take as it seeks love and approval.

It will be interesting to watch Ariana mature as a performer because she is so undefined in her Solar Plexus (emotions), Heart/Will (worthiness and willpower), Sacral (generator energy), Identity/G (self Identity and Love).

Though her definition she will continue to change and evolve to bring joy to life and with her defined 43-23 that defines the Ajna and the throat she will mutate and bring us genius or freak, only the timing will tell. I wish her blessings and pray that she will find the right manager that will honor her design, to keep her healthy and energized for a long and wonderful career.

Incarnation Cross of Spirit

People born on the incarnation cross of spirit are infused with a lively and empowering energy that can spur the rest of us on to “get into spirit”. Three of the gates, the 16, 59 and 55 carry creatively powered energies giving people born on this cross a highly creative potential. The gasoline here, the core fuel, in the mix is the gate 55, the gate of spirit, which is individual in nature. However the gate 55 has a high potential for melancholy and that coupled with the individual nature of this energy is not always understood by the rest of us. This can lead to the ‘not self’ expression of the cross. This not self expression according to Ra could be a whiny depressed expression of spirit or perhaps call it dispirited.
But lets look at the positive aspects of the gates of the cross of spirit.

Gate Name Gate Gene Key Description
59 Dispersion Sexuality The Dragon in your Genome Sexual energy to promote tribal continuity.
55 Abundance Spirit The Dragonfly’s dream Creative spiritual expression that is emotionally fueled to have an experience.
16 Enthusiasm Skills Magical Genius Talented energy that can be easily expressed.
9 The Taming Power of the Small Energy for Detail The Power of the Infinitesimal Extreme focus, sometimes hyper focus.

The gate 59 has a focused energy to reproduce for the benefit of the tribe. The gate 55 has a passion to have an experience. As it is individual energy it is potentially unique to that person. The gate 16 brings talent to express what is being thought of or being created. The gate 9 brings incredible focus to the thought and to the detail. When we combine the 4 gates there is the potential to have a masterfully creative inspiration that is fueled with passion, detail and focus to bring us closer to the spirit of whatever the expression and or experience is targeting it to be. Spirit here could be spiritual as in God or it could be in the spirit of understanding the complexity of chess. It all depends on the cross of Spirit that is expressing this.

There is a challenge and balance in all this, if the cross of Spirit wishes for their vision to take hold and be understood. Typically because of the gate 59 has the drive to make connection, they will want to be understood or their spirit embraced. The challenge is the individual nature of the 55, the driving energy of the cross, may at times be so unique, that unless the timing is right the rest of us aren’t ready to catch the spirit.  If the creativity of the 55 is required to compromise, to be more mainstream, there is the possibility the passion which fuels the spirit will bleed out before the impact and the fever of the spirit will be lost. So the cross of Spirit dances with these factors in hopes to be of spirit and have their passion catch fire and spread.

Here are several cross of Spirit’s whose passions vary quite a bit.

Match made in Heaven?

Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker are celebrating 22 years of marriage. Far out lasting many of the celebrity marriages, there union is a testimony to their connection. Sarah has stated that the key to their marriage is they are good friends. From the Human design standpoint their are some electromagnetic connections that helped draw them to each other and also form a foundation to keep them connected.

Electromagnetic connections are not all their is in relationship. There is harmony in the core energies, there is compatibility of the expression of the profiles and there is a recognition or an awareness of energetic expression. Some profiles like the 2nd and 5th lines are more hermit like and others like the 4th line are more social. Some profile pairings in relationship will have a natural balance as their is pure resonance and others will have a dance of balancing between different ends of the spectrum. For example, a couple that both have a second line may find a natural balance of the hermit energy and recognize the need in each other for down time. Couples without a resonance may find there needs to be give and take and understanding as they negotiate the differences and pulls of their profile energies.

In the case of Matthew and Sarah it is hard to say for sure about their profiles. Odds are they do not share a profile line. Sarah is for sure a 1-4. Very foundational in nature, with an eye toward an inward focus. Matthew is for sure more outwardly focused and likely to be a 3-5. His birth time is not known so it is possible if he was born in the last hour or so on his birth date, he could be a 3-6 or 4-6. If we do assume he is a 3-5, then this relationship would be a dance of the inward and foundational nature of Sarah and the more outward, experimental yet sometimes hermitting energies of Matthew.

However when we look at electromagnetic connections, when 2 hanging gates come together in the same channel, we do see a strong pull. Sarah and Matthew connect in some very important channels. In the chart below you can see the circled connections in the 59-6, the channel of sex and reproduction. The also form the channel of rhythm in the 15-5. Although  these energies do not always get along as the 5 is more steady rhythm and the 15 is extremes in rhythm, there still is a connection but this one may be more of a dance. They form the 44-26. the channel of surrender. This connection adds will power for Sarah and is an instinctive and tribal connection. While it is not elctromagnetic, Matthew has the full 37-40 channel of the Family and Sarah has the 37 as a multiplier. Overall, if their goals and beliefs are in alignment, these tribal energies of the 37-40, the 59-6 and the 44-36 will be like glue and hold them together in what can be a difficult world of a celebrity marriage and raising a family.

Additional if you look at the incarnation crosses there is potential harmony. Sarah is the Cross of Service. Essentially the Cross of Service is here to have opinions and corrections to bring about joy in life. Matthew is a Vessel of Love. Typically Vessels of Love are here to be love and love life. What is not to love about bringing more joy to life? So in a sense his cross supports her and her cross supports his.

So you could say, it was a match made by the heavens, since our designs come from the positioning of the planets and stars and the neutrino energies that give us our programming or design.

Dear Kelly

Dear Kelly Clarkson,

Please take care of yourself. While you showed a lot of heart and grit surviving and thriving through an appendicitis during hosting the Billboard music awards, your human design suggests you may be vulnerable to other health ailments, if you push yourself too far.

Wishing you blessings and Love!

Peter Roe ~ Human Design Coach

Kelly Clarkson has been on a whirlwind of productivity since she burst on the scene as the first American Idol in 2002. She has produced several albums, been on TV shows, produced a children’s book including an original lullaby and is a coach and mentor on the TV show The Voice. Most recently Kelly made the news as she hosted the Billboard awards, making a very energetic opening performance, all while in the midst of an appendicitis. Cringing in pain after the show she flew home for an emergency appendectomy. The Billboard Awards were sandwiched in between The Voice live shows which Kelly did not miss a beat and was back in the coaches chair the next week after her operation.

While I admire her perseverance, I am genuinely concerned for Kelly’s health as her human design shows she has a vulnerability. It is not public what her birth  time is so I will show a couple of charts. There are 2 things that pop out to me looking at her chart that don’t change through out her birth day.

  • Her Heart / Will center is completely open. This center is considered a pulse motor and needs to work then rest. Think about the heart. It beats, it rests, it beats, it rests. The Heart / Will is connected to self worth. People with an open or undefined center can push themselves to keep going to prove they are worthy, a true competitor. But without consistent energy, they don’t know when to rest.  The Heart / Will center is connected to the physical heart and the gall bladder. If you don’t allow the rest, you can end up causing physical damage. I have a friend who always accomplished things through will power. In their mid 30’s, they had their gall bladder removed. I ran their chart and sure enough the H/W center was open.
  • The other thing of Kelly’s design that stands out is what my wife Elvia calls the octa-Spleen. She has 3 channels and two hanging gates connected to the Spleen. Lots of splenic energy! She is wired to be in the moment, do in the moment, progress in the moment. It is not a surprise that she believes she can do it all, as she has all this energy to be in each moment.

If we take a deeper look at her connections to the Spleen this is what I see:

  • The 50-27 is the energy of Mothering and Fathering. It is nourishing and nurturing. Watching the voice you see her demonstrate these behaviors vividly as she coaches her flock of chosen artists.
  • The 34-57 is powerful energy to be and do in the moment. That is just what she does.
  • The 54-32 is a channel of progression, to work at it, to progress, to get better and better. I bet she pushed herself getting ready for her big number for the Billboard Awards.
  • Gate 44 – Is the instinctive or intuitive ability to recognize patterns or what needs to happen next.
  • Gate 28 – Is the energy of struggle or the fight to comprehend and understand more deeply what you are trying to push through.

All this make me think of her song Stronger:  https://youtu.be/Xn676-fLq7I

Here she is appendicitis and all at the Billboard awards.  https://youtu.be/UVtWlePDY0o

In conclusion, we can all get a little insight about the connection between our energetic design and our physical body, if we pause to take a look at our human design.

Since her birth time is not known, here are a couple possible charts for Kelly.




What makes John a Legend?

I will admit I didn’t know much about John Legend until the last couple years. I had heard his name and of course had heard his #1 song hit “All of Me”. He surfaced in my reality when he played the part of Jesus in a live TV production of Jesus Christ Superstar last year with Sara Bareilles. John is now famous for being one of very few people to win an EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony awards).

John joined The Voice this winter as the newest coach to participate in this seasons singing competition. I really enjoy The Voice as they show a lot of talented artists. Most of all I admire that the coaches are always encouraging the competitors, trying to help them succeed. If you have never watched the show here is a brief explanation. There are 4 coaches who are in chairs facing away from the stage. The artists do a blind audition to the crowd and if the coaches hear someone they would like on their team, they press a button to turn around and watch the rest of the artists performance. If more than one coach turns around, each coach makes a pitch to the artist hoping the artist will choose them.  Once the coaches have filled their teams the competition begins and in the end 1 singer emerges a winner. The coaches are so positive that even when an artist is not selected, they get advice or direction of how they can improve and sometimes with the comment, “Then come back and try again”.

So what does this have to do with Human Design? As I watched the new coach, John Legend, interact with the artists and other coaches there was part of his behavior that I couldn’t quite grasp. From my viewpoint, while he often made very positive or praising remarks, there was an energy there that I couldn’t quite place. At first I thought he lacked sincerity, but that wasn’t it. So as the season progressed I continued to observe and ponder. Was it Ego?  Well Ego is a button or filter of mine, but no that was not really it. So I turned to the tool that I know the best to help understand this human behavior.

To give you a glimpse, here is some of his interaction in the first show.

After looking at his chart I see that this energy/behavior is hard to put a single word or classification on as it is a blend of several energies, but they are all there in his chart. Here is my analysis of contributing energies.

  • Gate 40 -Aloneness – I can do it alone I don’t necessarily need to be in the tribe or get close to the other coaches.
  • Gate 6 – Friction – I have my arm out and unless I allow it you can’t come inside my inner circle.
  • Gate 1 – The Creative – I am me, this is who I am, this is my creative expression, take it or leave it as I don’t care.
  • Gate 36 – Darkening of the Light – I am not sure about this experience that is going to happen, so I will proceed with caution.
  • Open Solar Plexus – I don’t want your drama or emotions.

Then if you look at his design as a whole:

John is the Cross of Service he is here to bring joy to life. He has attributes like gate 1 of knowing who he is and gate 43 of knowing what he knows. He has the gate 48 of going deep and with his cross gates he is confident of who he is, what he can do to bring joy to life. With the open Solar Plexus and other mentioned attributes, warm and fuzzy is not part of the package. With a defined Ajna he is likely to be more fixed in his actions and approach to things in life.  Maybe this comes of as slightly wooden but not exactly. Lastly with  line 5 in his profile he has the magnetism that the 5 carries and he draws us in. But the 5 doesn’t always love and attention and needs to withdraw so another barrier like factor but not exactly.

With John’s accomplishments he certainly is a Legend and now through this exercise I feel like understand him a bit better. We often like simple answers but through Human Design we can see that we are complex beings with a lot of different energies that can interact in so many different ways. The sum is not always clear or can be summed up in a single expression, but through Human Design it can be understandable.

Here is John’s chart.
