Back in 1987, a man by the name of Ra Uru Hu received a 'revelation'. It contained a huge amount of information about Chakras, the I Ching, the Tree of Life and Astrology.

The revelation explained a new way to combine these ancient wisdoms in a way that aligns with modern science – DNA and quantum physics.

It was called The Human Design System.

The chart is made up of chakras, circuits and gates. Your birth details are used to colour your chart, making it as unique as your astrology chart.

How do we know where to place the planets? That's where the I Ching comes in.

The connection between Astrology and the I Ching is the engine room of the Human Design System.

Putting the Planets Into the Chart

I'll give you an example. Today, 11 th July 2010, as I'm writing this ebook, the Sun is at 18 degrees Cancer. Any planet that sits between 15 and 20 degrees in Cancer is indexed to Hexagram 53.

Hexagram 53 is in the Root Chakra of the Human Design chart, and it's meaning is Gradual Development. If you were born today, your Sun would be in Gate 53 in your Human Design chart.

The Power of your Pre-Natal Layer

Unlike your normal astrology chart, which only uses the birth time, Human Design uses two sets of planetary activations.

There's the normal natal planets that are based on your birth time. And then there's a second set called the Pre-Natal or Design layer, created using a date and time about 3 months prior to when you were born (88 degrees of the Sun prior to birth to be exact).

This second layer shows something about you that is natural and operates under your conscious awareness. This is different to the Jungian idea of the subconscious shadow. These gates show something in your energy field that you don't need to be consciously aware of.

There's nothing wrong with them, nothing to be fixed. It's a bit like your heart beating or your lungs breathing. If you had to be aware of everything that was happening in your body you'd go quite mad. It's the same with the way you use your energy field.

This PreNatal layer is also known as the Design layer. It's shown on the chart in red.

The Natal layer is also known as the Personality layer. It represents what you are more

conscious of in your energy field, and is shown on the chart in black.

Notice how some gates join with others to form channels, and this creates an activation of the Centre at either end. These activations tell us a lot about what's connected in your energy field and what isn't.

For example, if your Ajna Centre isn't connected to the Throat Centre you may have difficulty expressing what you are thinking.

When a Centre doesn't have that connection, it's not activated and shows up as white on your chart. That means it is more sensitive and this is an area of your life where you tend to be affected much more than others by the people around you.

What Does My Design Say About Me?

Using the information in this ebook, you can look at which Centres each of your planets is in, and make some initial observations.

For example, if your Sun is in the Root Centre, you develop a sense of identity (Sun) by building personal security and stability and by engaging in life joyfully (Root Centre).

If you Google Human Design you'll see a lot of information about Type. Your Type is shown in the Keynotes on your free chart. I don't work with Type anymore, as I find it too simplistic, even misleading.

There is much more to Human Design than the standard chart. In my work with Human Design I use dwarf planets like Ceres and Haumea, asteroids like Juno and Eros, centaurs like Chiron and Hylonome. I also refer to The Great Attractor, the Galactic Centre, Super Galactic Centre and other black holes.

I also use multi layered charts – your spiritual layer, your transpersonal layer, sleep and dream layers and others. These Subtle Layers show how different aspects of your consciousness connect with each other in your day to day life.

While there is literally an unlimited amount

This simple view informs something quite profound about ourselves and then takes us by the hand and leads us forward into the mystery of our life.

Human Design will take us deeply into a contemplation of what it means to be a unique

because it is embedded in the body. The correlation between the I Ching and human DNA indicates that this is information held deep within our cells.

I believe it is more easily understood than astrology

Human Design can be a lived wisdom rather than a learnt philosophy.

We integrate useful information at the appropriate time, as we go along our natural

journey.

In this way we embody wisdom about ourselves, rather than collect

I'm going to share with you something that I believe happens when we approach Human Design in this simple way. We lose our need to know and begin to enjoy the journey. We stop trying to fit ourselves to the information, and start allowing our observation of ourselves to be paramount. This frees us to be the authority in our own lives.

And in this way, we discover a whole new answer to the question – who am I?

Your Personal Planetary Story

Here's some questions to help you explore your design:

1. What chakras/centres do each of my planets activate?

2. What can I observe in my day to day life about how each of these Centres operate?

For example:

talking to people. Mars is in my Heart Centre and I can be extremely willful when I want something.

My Sun is in my Ajna Centre and I feel really alive when I'm thinking and
