What is “Authority” in Human Design?
- In a nutshell, “authority” is the way we gain clarity to make decisions. When you are presented an opportunity or a choice in life – how do you know what the right decision is for you? How do you know if something is in alignment for you? Your Human Design Authority is how you achieve clarity to know the right path forward.
- Authority is especially useful when you are making “BIG” decisions such as accepting a new job or relocating to a new city.
- There are 7 different “authority types” in Human Design. No inner authority is one of them.

The Energy of this Authority
- Only Reflectors will have this authority.
- This authority has a wispy and ethereal vibe because it is ruled more by moon than sun.
- Every month or lunar cycle there is a theme for this individual. If they pay attention they will find that they live in 28 day cycles.
How it Works
- Answers of “yes” or “no” do not come in the now. Ideally, you allow the world to give you direction over the next 28 days (a lunar cycle)
- When you are trying to make a decision it is ideal to have a trusted sounding board. You are using this person as a sounding board and you are not seeking advice from them. You are using your open centers to access your bodily information as you are speaking through your voice.
- Here is an example of how this authority speaks to you. When you feel expansive in your body as you are talking about the thing in question – this is a “yes”. When you feel contracted as you talk – this is a “no”.
- It is important to pay attention and understand how this authority speaks and feels to you in your body.
- You don’t have these moment to moment strategies that are consistent for you. It is more about living with your own set of rules and following the beat of your own drummer
- Remember, this only applies to big decisions – not small things like what to eat.
- If you can’t wait a full lunar cycle, respond with decisions that buy you time. For example, ask “may I have 48 hours to consider my decision?”
- You don’t have to wait for the lunar cycle to create things.
- It is always better to wait the full 28 days but after you have learned to trust how this authority speaks to you, you may find you get clarity BEFORE the end of your 28 day cycle.
- Don’t isolate yourself during times when you are seeking clarity to make a big decision. You need the flow of energy from others and environments to help you gain clarity.
