How to know if you have Gate 49 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 triangle Solar Plexus Energy Center on the right hand side of the chart. If Gate 49 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 49 – Gate of Principles 

Gate 49 lives in the Solar Plexus Energy Center which is a motor and awareness center – it is about emotional awareness and may inspire action.

High Expression of Gate 49

  • You embody an energy that is principled and altruistic. You likely have a set of values that you really believe in and your altruistic desires drive you to improve the social and spiritual health of the planet. 
  • When you encounter activity or behavior that is not within the boundaries of your principles, then you may find yourself pushing for revolution and change until the situation falls within the range of these values.

Challenge Side of Gate 49 

  • Experiencing fear of inadequacy or imposter syndrome. 
  • Insisting on staying in your comfort zone or over preparing for things. 
  • You may also be prone to finding yourself in codependent relationships because it feels good when you are sacrificing for others.

Is Gate 49 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 49 as your Personality Sun Gate

  • If Gate 49 is your Personality Sun Gate it means you are here to develop your own core values or principles and drive for change in areas of your passion to align with those values.  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.
