How to know if you have Gate 24 activated in your bodygraph chart

  • Go to myhumandesign.com 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 Energy Center which is the upside down triangle shaped center at the top of the chart. If Gate 24 has a circle around it with a colored line coming from it this means this energy is activated or consistently available to you.

What are the Gates in Human Design?

  • The Gates 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 gate 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.
  • Everyone has the potential for 26 individual gates to be activated in their bodygraph chart, however, if you look closely, you may find that you have gates appearing multiple times in the two columns on either side of the chart. This is a common occurrence.
  • There are 64 Gates in a bodygraph chart and each gate has a theme that is related to the 64 I Ching hexagrams. If you would like a deeper understanding of the gates, I highly recommend deep diving into the Chinese I Ching hexagrams.
  • 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 Gates Can Show Up Energetically in our Life

  • We can use the energy of a gate 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.

Gate 24 – Gate of Rationalization

Gate 24 lives in the Ajna Center which is the mind center – it is an awareness center for mind consciousness.

High Expression of Gate 24

  • This is a gift for pondering ideas or concepts in order to get down to the truth of the situation. It’s a “detective” energy. It’s about knowing the truth right away but understanding truths is a process so it can be a challenge to be patient.
  • You may also find that you get aha moment’s from out of nowhere.

Challenge Side of Gate 24 

  • Having a fear of being ignorant or appearing stupid in situations.
  • Rationalizing or justifying anything to a fault.
  • Finding yourself fixated on an idea and getting stuck on replaying the same thing over and over again.
  • Being addicted to thinking. Your thoughts make things more complicated sometimes.

The Channel of Awareness – Gate 24’s partnership with Gate 61

  • Gate 24 looks to Gate 61 for the next inspiring mystery to process and Gate 61 looks to Gate 24 to process and solve the mystery.

Is Gate 24 your “Personality Sun Gate”?

What is a Personality Sun Gate?

  • Personality Sun Gate is the top number located in the Personality Side of the chart. If you are looking at the bodygraph chart you will see two columns on either side. The column on the right is the Personality side. The number at the top is your Personality Sun Gate.  
  • Many say that your Personality Sun Gate is 70% of your energy – it is the thing you are here to do and share with the world. The energies of this gate will be expressed throughout your life journey and the work you choose to do.
  • It is worth noting that we often see our Personality Sun Gate as a flaw earlier in life and then later embrace it as a gift.

Gate 24 as your Personality Sun Gate

  • If Gate 24 is your Personality Sun Gate it means you are here to process ideas and concepts to get to the bottom of the situation.  If you lean into your strategy and authority, you will naturally bring this gift into the things you are passionate about. The way this energy will express itself will be unique to you.
