How to know if you have Channel 23-43 activated in your bodygraph chart

  • Go to and go to “Get Your Chart”.
  • Input your birth details including birth day, birth time, birth location.
    • NOTE – Information in the bodygraph chart is VERY sensitive to birth time so it is important to have an accurate birth time if possible.
  • Look at the Ajna and Throat Energy Center in the bodygraph chart. If Gate 43 in the Ajna Energy Center is connected to Gate 23 with a colored line (not white) this means this channel is activated and the energetics of it are consistently available to you.

What are the Channels in Human Design?

  • The Channels in a Human Design body graph chart represent the gifts, talents, motivations, energetics or drives that are consistently available to us. If you DO NOT have a channel fully activated or colored it doesn’t mean you never have access to that energy. It just means it’s not a reliable or constant energy in your life.
  • Lastly, it is worth noting that there are MANY layers to all aspects of the chart including the gates. This article is intended to be a high level summary.

How the Channels Can Show Up Energetically in our Life

  • We can use the energy of a channel in a positive or negative way towards ourselves and/ or other people.
  • We may embody the energy with lack and/or fear OR we can embody the energy with truth and abundance.
  • Because of external conditioning we have encountered, we may shy away from the energy and choose NOT to see it as a part of ourselves. We may not want to embrace it and shut it down instead.

What does a Black Line vs. a Red Line vs. a Striped Line Indicate? 

  • Black Lines represent gifts that we are likely more conscious and aware of.
  • Red Lines represent gifts that we are likely less conscious and aware of.
  • Striped (both black and red) lines represent gifts that are both conscious and unconscious.

High Expression of the Channel of Structuring

  • This energy is often called a “Genius freak energy”  because you are here to pave the way for new things.
  • You have come into this life with an agreement with the universe to see a new way of doing things. Because you have essentially “come down early”, many people may not be ready for some of your ideas. You are here to take the risk and learn the right time and right audience to share your ideas with.
  • When you are able to express your ideas and they are well received – you will be viewed as a genius. But when those ideas are not well received then you may be perceived as a “freak”.

Challenge Side of the Channel of Structuring

  • Those who have this energy in their chart need to learn two very important things: Communication skills and patience.
    • Communication skills so you can make an impact on your audience
    • Patience so you can wait for recognition from your audience so you know that they are ready to hear what you have to say.
  • The energy of this channel is about the individual – so you are not here to pull others along and get them to embrace your unique ideas. Expressing your new ideas is more about leaning into your authenticity and expressing yourself than it is about acceptance of those ideas.
