How to know if you have Gate 29 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 Sacral Energy Center which is the second square up from the bottom of the chart. If Gate 29 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 29 Gate of Perseverance
Gate 29 lives in the Sacral Energy Center which is a motor center – it is designed to respond and generate life force.
High Expression of Gate 29
- You often say “yes” to things because you are able to persevere and push through where others might quit. You are not afraid to commit to new projects or ideas.
- Your energy is designed to move you through even the most difficult and challenging circumstances but only if it is fully aligned with your desires, strategy and authority.
Challenge Side of Gate 29
- Wanting to control the outcome of projects or situations. Being overly attached to the outcome of things.
- Feeling taken advantage of after saying “yes” to too many things. Be aware that once others catch on to your willingness to say “yes”, they might try to take advantage.
- You may have a hard time saying no to people which leads to over commitment and experiencing burnout. If unchecked, you could overcommit yourself into poor health.

Is Gate 29 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 29 as your Personality Sun Gate
- If Gate 29 is your Personality Sun Gate you are here to fulfill your purpose by committing and saying yes to things that you are passionate about and are in alignment for you. If you lean into your strategy and authority, you will naturally bring the gift of perseverance to the things you are passionate about. The way this energy will express itself will be unique to you.
