How to know if you have Gate 64 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 Crown Energy Center which is the triangle shaped center at the top of the chart. If Gate 64 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 64 – Gate of Confusion

Gate 64 lives in the Crown Energy Center which is the inspiration center – it is the pressure to think, understand and make sense of the world around us.

High Expression of Gate 64

  • You have a drive for “closure” and the ability to break through ideas and possibilities to achieve clarity. Because you have a constant flow of data that continually recycles through your mind, it feels better when all of the “loose ends” are tied up. It is important that you allow the stream of disconnected memories and information to flow through your mind until the message becomes clear to you. Embrace and relax into this process. 
  • You must be patient with your process and trust that the confusion will resolve.  At the highest expression, you are able to dance with confusion and not worry about HOW things will tie up or finish.

Challenge Side of Gate 64 

  • You may experience a pressure to make sense of everything and you may be overwhelmed by all of your inspirations.
  • You may also get stuck trying to analyze things so you can have “closure” instead of accepting that not all situations will be buttoned up or completed.

The Channel of Abstraction – Gate 64’s partnership with Gate 47 

  • Gate 47 looks to Gate 64 for the insights and revelations that will bring temporary peace to your mental processing. Gate 64 looks to Gate 47 for clarity so that confusion becomes imagination, creativity and brilliance.

Is Gate 64 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 64 as your Personality Sun Gate

  • If Gate 64 is your Personality Sun Gate your breakthrough ideas and your drive for clarity will push us forward as a collective.    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.
