Human Design: Gates of the Month
July 2022


This upcoming month’s transits discussed by Marga.

July 2022 - From Cancer to Leo
July 2022 – From Cancer to Leo

In Human Design, as in astrology, the Sun moves from sign to sign over the course of the year, but the 360 degrees of the Zodiac are not just divided into the 12 signs, but into 64 further sections, called Gates, which are inspired by the 64 hexagrams of the Chinese I-Ching, also known as the Book of Changes. In this column we present, month by month, the Gates that are activated by the passage of the Sun, and any Channel that might come into being in combination with the movement of other planets. Together they influence everything that happens to us, as we are individuals immersed in the collective cosmic energy…

Zodiac Signs: Cancer to Leo

1-6 July – Gate 39 ~ Provocation

These could be tense and difficult days, full of problems to solve and obstacles to overcome. It is important to find the right blend of anticipation and action, working your way through possible provocations inflicted or received and building up momentum in times of standstill, in order to be effective the moment you can act or decide to act. Awareness and presence will be the best guides, but if things get complicated, instead of easing out, it is a sign that it is time to seek the help and advice of wise and trusted people. It is precisely the most extreme situations that sometimes give us the strength and humility to recognize such people, and this is a gift that will remain even after difficulties have passed.

7-12 July – Gate 53 ~ New Beginnings

Each step leads to the next and is always a potential new beginning… And it is this very ground we walk on, these days, that gives us the push – sometimes even in the form of pressure – to start something new. Anything new, as long as it is different from what we are now familiar with and which recently may have tired us out, leaving us with a sense of frustration. The secret of this energy is to accept from the very beginning that what we initiate now will not necessarily stay in our hands, or may never come to fruition! But even a false beginning can pave the way for something truly new and great that may reveal and manifest itself later. Let go of any possessiveness: whether ideas or projects, they have a life of their own that does not depend entirely on us!

13-18 July – Gate 62 ~ Expressed Details

The Sun in this Gate, together with Jupiter in Gate 17, Following, in these days, form the Channel of the Organizer. It is time to put the pieces of the puzzle together and close the balance of what is really in our hands at this time. Perhaps the clarity of the difference between facts and opinions will finally make its way into the world, leaving us with the honor, and the burden, of choosing which side to take! Sometimes the only truly relevant approach is “I don’t know.” Especially when the collective tendency to use and speak one’s mind too lightly, or to believe everything they say can create a solid cloud of thoughts and words that obscure what really is. Enjoy putting reality in order, but don’t try to convince yourself and others that the order you have given it is real in itself….

19-24 July – Gate 56 ~ The Wanderer

Possibility of pleasant, exciting days even, but be careful not to get too distracted! This Gate invites you to look at life as a sailing trip. Whether it is flat calm or gale, what matters is your ability to protect the mast of your boat. Only then will you be able to return each time to the harbor and tell your story, whether boring or adventurous. Otherwise it is just an eternal shipwreck in the ocean of insubstantiality and oblivion, and you are clinging to a piece of wood. Remember that any experience is never complete until it is also shared – this is the true richness of being human! Another important message of this Gate: it is time to be honest with yourself and ask, “What am I really looking for?”

25-31 July – Gate 31 ~ Influence

An important gateway opens these days that will give us a chance to grasp the meaning of proper leadership, through the Channel of the Alpha, thanks to Mercury’s short transit through Gate 7, Uniformity. Not everyone is born to lead and only a few are born to be true leaders, that is, being capable of exerting their influence for the benefit of their following and to achieve their intended goal. Otherwise it is just barking at sheep! Contemplate the responsibility to guide towards a common goal and to be guided without futile resistance. It is a mutual agreement of deep trust and recognition.

Note: On 31 July the Sun moves to Gate 33, Retreat, which we will discuss next month.
