How to know if you have Gate 60 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 square Root Energy Center at the bottom of the chart. If Gate 60 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 60 Gate of Acceptance

Gate 60 lives in the Root Energy which is a pressure center – the pressure to start or initiate things.

High Expression of Gate 60 

  • The energy of this gate is about the pressure that is needed to mutate forms and release the potential in things.
  • This energy is experienced as a feeling of restlessness in life. You like to get things going and you want to make sure nothing stands in your way.  The positive approach of this energy is to know that there may be things that stand in the way but you know those things won’t stop your forward progress.
  • You are here to get stuff done and make things happen. It is important for you to have forward motion.

Challenge Side of Gate 60

  • The challenge is that there will be times where things are moving forward nicely and then there is a pause. This pause may feel dramatic and you may say to yourself “what is wrong with my life?” The key is to learn to accept the pauses in life or with projects. Do not fight the pause – if you fight the pause, it may  last longer.
  • It is important to reframe the pauses in life as forward progress. It is like pulling the arrow back to shoot even further. If you can accept the pause, you will see how fast things pick up after you do that.
  • Know that you are not crazy for feeling like your life is amazing one minute and then the next minute you are questioning everything you are doing.
  • You may have a tendency to overthink things and not want to start something new until you have micromanaged things to a point where you are sure nothing will stand in your way.
  • The power in this gate is accepting and overcoming limitations. There will be times where things are going and moving and then there are times of pause. During the pause, it can feel like something is wrong but it is not. Everything is as it should be.

The Channel of the Mutation – Gate 60’s partnership with Gate 3 

  • Gate 60 looks to Gate 3 to bring order to the chaos that can result when mutation and change occurs.  Gate 3 looks to Gate 60 to release the energetic pressure and potential for a new change to bring forward. 

Is Gate 60 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 60 as your Personality Sun Gate

  • If Gate 60 is your Personality Sun Gate you are here to fulfill your purpose by honoring the cyclical process of forward progress followed by a necessary pause that is needed to release the potential in things and create new forms. 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.
