How to know if you have Gate 44 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 Splenic Energy Center which is the triangle shaped center on the left side of the chart. If Gate 44 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 44 Gate of Alertness 

Gate 44 lives in the Splenic Energy Center – which is an awareness center – it is designed to tap into the environment and alert us when something isn’t right or healthy.

High Expression of Gate 44 

  • You have an instinct for seeing possibilities and the potential in things. You can spot trends and patterns – you are able to see what is going to be big or what trend is coming next. 
  • You may also have a knack for healing patterns from the past and you know how to make things look good from a marketing perspective. Be sure to use these abilities in the work you do.
  • You have an awareness of who is an ally and who is not. You also have an instinctual awareness in knowing what is healthy and energetically correct for YOU. 

Challenge Side of Gate 44

  • Fear of the past repeating itself, fear of being stuck in the past or allowing past experiences to limit future possibilities.
  • You may fear that you are not able to survive or “make it” in the world
  • Experiencing distrust in relationships.
  • You find yourself over-committing or making promises you can’t keep.

The Channel of Surrender – Gate 44’s partnership with Gate 26 

  • Gate 44 looks to Gate 26 for the tribal recognition and willpower to share the transformation (or information) that you instinctively know will benefit others. Gate 26 looks to Gate 44 for the instinctive awareness to know when, how and what to share with others. 

Is Gate 44 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 44 as your Personality Sun Gate

  • If Gate 44 is your Personality Sun Gate you are here to fulfill your purpose by spotting transformational trends and patterns that will inform the trajectory of the work you love to do and benefit the collective.  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.
