Share This Post

This article covers Line 6 in the Human Design System at a high level. These individuals have qualities often found in role models or those who embody a strong sense of responsibility.

What is Human Design?

  • Human Design is a system that was created in 1992 by Alan Robert Krakower (aka Ra Uru Hu) and it brings together principles of The I Ching, Western Astrology, the Kabbalistic Tree of Life, Hindu-Brahmin chakra system, and quantum physics to create a chart called a BodyGraph. This chart is calculated using your birth date, time, and place.
  • Human Design provides a guide on how we can live in sync with our true nature. The BodyGraph reveals what aspects of our energy type, skills, and traits we should lean into to experience flow and acceptance of our true selves.

What are the lines?

  • One of the fundamental components of Human Design is the concept of “Lines,” which provide insight into the inherent traits and characteristics of an individual. 
  • Each line has its own theme, energy, and/or characteristics.
  • The lines provide a deeper layer of understanding to elements within the chart
  • The lines in your chart can take time to understand because the themes can seem very abstract. Sort of like a puzzle. And your understanding of the lines in your chart will evolve over time as you embark on your own Human Design journey.

Where do the lines show up in a bodygraph chart?

  • Profile or Personality characteristics (e.g.,1/4  1/5, 3/5  etc.)

  • Within the levels of information that can be found in the Arrows (Four Transformations) of a bodygraph chart
