How to know if you have Gate 43 activated in your bodygraph chart

  • Go to and go to “Get Your Chart”.
  • Input your birth details including birthday, 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 43 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 represents 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 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 toward 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 43 Gate of Insight

Gate 43 lives in the Ajna Center which is the mind center – it is an awareness center for mind consciousness.

High Expression of Gate 43 

  • The energy of this gate is the ability to take inner knowledge and transform it into unique insights and new perspectives.
  • You have come back with an agreement with the light to see the new way of doing things. Because you have come down early, people may not be ready for some of the ideas you have. And in this way, you take the risk and you are here to learn at the right time and the right audience for sharing those new ideas and insights.
  • When you share these ideas and they are accepted, you are considered to be a genius. Ultimately this gift is about making things more efficient.

Challenge Side of Gate 43

  • Not knowing the right time to share or communicate your insights. Experiencing impatience, melancholy, and loneliness.
  • It may be difficult for this person to listen to and really hear other people.
  • Not trusting your insights and experiencing mental anxiety when you fear that your ideas are too weird to share. You may also worry about the rejection of your unique ideas.

Is Gate 43 your “Personality Sun Gate”?

What is a Personality Sun Gate?

  • Personality Sun Gate is the top number located on 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 43 as your Personality Sun Gate

  • If Gate 43 is your Personality Sun Gate you are here to fulfill your purpose by trusting and acting upon your unique insights and perspectives that will create change in the world. If you lean into your strategy and authority, you will naturally bring this gift to the things you are passionate about. The way this energy will express itself will be unique to you.
