Design Side vs. Personality Side of the Chart

Personality Side of the chart

  • Represented in the column on the right hand side of the chart
  • The activations on the personality side are “gifted” at the time of birth.
  • The energies on the personality side are considered “conscious”. This means that we probably recognize these energies when they are shared with us.
  • Gates or numbers in the chart that are on the personality side of the chart show up in our chart as black lines

Design Side of the chart

  • Represented in the column on the left hand side of the chart.
  • The activations in this side of the chart are “gifted” about 3 months-ish before we are born.
  • The energies on the design side are considered “unconscious”. This means that we likely DO NOT recognize these energies when they are shared with us.
  • Gates or numbers in the chart that are on the design side of the chart show up in our chart as black lines

Two Additional Things to note

  • The numbers for the Profile come from the first numbers at the top of each column. 
    • For example, you will see in the photo above that Zahada is a 3/5  Profile. The ”3” can be found in the 64.3 from the Personality Side and the 5 comes from the 35.5 on the Design Side. 
  • The Incarnation Cross also comes from the Personality and Design columns. The incarnation cross numbers are the top two gate activations from the Personality side and the top two gate activations from the design side.
    • If you look at Zahada’s chart above, the top two gate activations on the Personality side are 64/63 and the top two gate activations on the Design Side are 35/5. This is where the incarnation cross numbers come from.
