What is a Projector?


Walk into a room and on average one in every five people will be a Projector (20% of the population). Projectors are here to GUIDE energy. We are here to be wise about how to do things. We’re not the rarest Type within Human Design, but we’re susceptible to being the most conditioned.

What does it mean to be conditioned? It means to live in a way that isn’t authentic to you. As children, we are sensitive and are easily susceptible to take on what our upbringing environment was like. So you can be conditioned to act, think, and feel in a way that isn’t really you. What happens is that you grow up using your mind to make decisions instead of letting your body’s intelligence (strategy and inner authority) to do the decision making for you. Now you have to peel the layers off so you can discover your unique nature.


We live in a world where it’s normal to work 40 hours a week and to only get two weeks of vacation on average every year. On top of that, we’re told, “just do it.” Working for extended periods of time is suitable for Generators and initiating is what Manifestors are here to do. So as you can see, Projectors are conditioned to believe that they have the energy and initiative mechanisms to work like everyone else.


Not the case.


Projectors are the newest Types out of the four that emerged after 1781. And until now, until the advent of the Human Design System, Projectors didn’t know that they’re unique beings that operate differently than mostly everyone else. Now, we can clearly see that the world is operating at a different rhythm than that of a Projector’s. 


To illustrate this example, via a metaphor, imagine that you (a Projector) have been running a marathon all of your life. You’ve been running a marathon, just because everyone else has been running it. Only to find out that your body doesn’t function properly in marathons. 

You discover that your body thrives in practicing yoga because your body was designed to flourish in moving itself in those ways. That’s how life is for Projectors: you’ve been operating in a way that wasn’t designed for you (running a marathon) and need to adjust your way of being (practice yoga) in order to live a life of success, fulfillment, and well-being.

This example is just a metaphor to illustrate the differences that we have with the rest of the world.


We need to first know what our uniqueness is as Projectors, then accept this deeply, and then embody these differences. If you can do this, then you can truly live a fulfilling and successful life. This is what The Projector Movement is here for: to support you DEEPLY in your journey back ‘home’, to your truth, to your core, to your uniqueness, and when you discover this and live from this place, life begins to flow in the most magical of ways.

 If there’s one thing we want you to take from Human Design, it’s this formula. By honoring this decision-making process, we start to align ourselves to our unique essence and begin to blossom into the person we were born to become.

There are 12 different profiles within the Human Design system.

Your profile number is derived from the line number that the gate sits on in your conscious/personality sun & earth (you may resonate more with this number), and your unconscious/design sun & earth (others may see this number more in you, than you do yourself).

For example, I have Gate 43 in my conscious sun, which sits on line 3 (43.3) I then have Gate 23 in my unconscious sun, which sits on line 5 (23.5) Therefore, that makes me a 3/5 profile, as you always take the line number from your conscious sun first.

You can see what I’m talking about in the image below.  A quick note to say that when you get your chart from somewhere such as My BodyGraph, it will list your profile number for you, however this is a great way to view it also.

Your profile is how you interact with the world, it really does give us a profound look into the life themes that you will experience. This will become much clearer as you navigate through this blog and the rest of the profile series. 



The Lines:

When we look at the lines individually (line 5 for example) it means one thing in and of itself. When we pair it with it's partner (line 1 for example), it brings a whole new flavour to the table. The profile is where we can start to see big differences in people's charts. Even if you're the same type as someone else, or have other similarities, how your profile plays out in your life can really differentiate you from others.  

Here is a basic overview of each line number and each profile:

Line 1: The Investigator

It is correct for this person to gather as much information as they feel they need before 'moving on' with whatever it may be in life. Researching and self informing is high on the list for you. Situations where you are put on the spot can be energetically jarring for you, as this is not how your life plays out in it's highest alignment. 

Line 2: The Hermit

Alone time deeply replenishes you. In doing so, this helps you live out the other side to your profile (2/4 for example) and means you can really be at your best. Giving yourself an opportunity to retreat and withdraw will have a very nourishing effect on you. You may find that a lot of things come somewhat easy to you, and that you may be known as a ‘natural’ at many things. 

Line 3: The Martyr

You learn by trial and error. While this may sound negative, it truly leads you down a path that is correct for you. Carrying this energy means you are very resilient and can morph and change rather easily. The more you lean into this energy, the more powerful it becomes. While society may not be set up for those of us who are constantly trying and 'failing', it is the way forward for third lines, as you then get to share about what you've learned on your ‘travels’.

Line 4: The Opportunist

You are a brilliant networker. Friendly and very aware of others. People are drawn to your energy and want to be in your space. This is a high output frequency to have, so downtime is absolutely necessary for you to replenish. Your invitations come from being around others and letting them speak about you and your work with others.

Line 5: The Heretic

You reflect back to others what needs to be seen. This line can guide, can teach. Fifth line people can be very easily projected upon. This may be in the form of a positive view where people let you know what they like about you, or this can be in a shadow view, where expectations are placed upon you that really don't serve you. There can be a deep feeling of needing to ‘people please’ with this energy, so strong boundaries are extremely helpful, thus completing the cycle of reflecting back to others what they need to see. You have a very penetrative energy, which some people may find rather intense, it serves you well to hold back on unsolicited advice.

Line 6: The Role Model

You have three distinct phases of life as a sixth line.

Phase 1: Birth through to your Saturn Return, which is around age 28-30. There is a lot of trial and error energy contained in this phase, very much the same as what a third line person would experience.

Phase 2: 30 through to your Chiron Return, which is around age 50. There is a deep reflection of your first phase here. You may find that you are transmuting many experiences from your first phase and alchemising them, becoming wiser and wiser each time.

Phase 3: 50+, this is where you can really step into your energy as a Role Model. Of course, this can happen at any phase, but with the life experience you have gained over the last 50 years, people are drawn to how wise you are, and want to hear about your experiences.

Let’s get into the 5/1 Profile!

We have a very special guest taking you through her world as a 5/1 Projector, Sarah Lemmerman!

Sarah received her Master's Degree in East/West Psychology from California Institute of Integral Studies. 

She is a 5/1, splenic projector who has spent the last three years working with and understanding the psychological phenomena of projectors. 

In addition Sarah works as an integrative counselor and ceremony facilitator incorporating western and non-western healing modalities with her clients.


Sarah is also our special guest for the 5/1 Projector Profiles edition, if you are a 5/1 Projector, we invite you to come and soak up Sarah’s wisdom. Not only is she very embodied and living true to her 5/1 Projector self, her experience and line of work make for an incredible conversation. 

You can find out more about this offer here! 


It’s always fascinating to see someone’s chart, so here is Sarah’s!

I'm going to hand it over to Sarah to dive deep:



Line 5:

In words, the 5/1 profile is known as Heretic/Investigator. 

Let’s start with saying that this is a magnificent profile to have. When you see a 5/1 Projector living out their truth and embodying who they are, you can’t help but be drawn to them. 

It’s important to mention that the 5/1 is the first profile to have transpersonal karma, this means that we are here to impact and help others correct their own karma. This will become even more apparent as you read through this blog.

The 5th line aspect of our profile carries a strong projection field, it’s like being a double Projector! We are here to influence people on a larger scale and we are here to be seen in the public, we very much like the stage.

It’s crucial to understand we have a huge projection field, as soon as someone comes into contact with us, we start to feel their projections. The 5th line can also be the ‘saviour’, as we get projected on us that we carry a solution to people's problems and people automatically expect this from us. We get put on a pedestal in a sense, they think that we are the ones that can help them, save them, heal them.

So it’s very crucial for us with the 5th line in our profile, that whatever we are here to offer, that we are well versed in it. Our reputation means a lot to us and if we’re not truly an expert in what we are offering to our clients/to the world, then as quickly as people pedestal us, we find ourselves the first ones to fall off that so-called pedestal and our reputation can be ruined quickly. It’s important for us to have backing in our chosen field.

We have to be very cautious as we care so deeply about our reputation, a good reputation is essential for our success.

We naturally carry a level of paranoia in life as at times perhaps we have over promised or taken on something where people have expected us to deliver a result and then when we don’t deliver the result, people really want to let us know when they are upset with us and the rejection is very loud when we don’t have the ability to follow through.

The dream for the 5/1 is to be embraced for who we truly are, but due to how often we’ve been misunderstood or poorly projected on, we can develop a coldness, an arrogance, an isolation because we feel that deep rejection throughout life. That rejection can come from parents thinking we should be something that we end up not being, or perhaps it comes from a boss, a partner, it really goes throughout all relationships where we’ve had a lot of deep rejection. 

When we are aligned, we have tremendous impact and do very well as coaches, as healers, as guides, for we can see the skills, talents and gifts of others and can assist people in how to utilise that best in their life. We are also natural leaders and it’s knowing how to operate best WITH the projection field, which is us waiting to draw people into our field. It never goes well if we are pushing who we are onto someone else. 

We are here to be very mindful when we speak, when we are on our stages. So if we are speaking and we are really unsure of what we are saying and it’s not 100% accurate, it will backfire. The same goes with if we are trying to give people advice and we are not certain of what we are saying, it will really backfire. The 5/1 is very powerful, we just have to be very aware and mindful of when we are speaking, as we can be rejected easily, which does us a disservice.


5/1 profiles can have people pleasing tendencies due to strong projections being placed on us if we’re not fortified enough or have clear boundaries in place. This can come from caregivers/teachers/society placing expectations on us that if you want to be loved or celebrated by them, that you have to meet their expectations. This can cause great distress and a strong belief that we are only seen or revered by someone if we do what they say. Creating a feeling or belief within us that others love is conditional, which can send a 5/1 spiralling into the people pleasing realm..this is not where we thrive from! 

Boundaries are excellent for us and the more boundaries you have in place, the less expectations will be placed upon you. When we are able to reflect these expectations back on to the person demanding them, it’s created a boundary that you are not the person to fulfil their needs. When we are empowered in ourselves, that automatically shows others that it’s not only doable, but that it’s necessary in order to thrive and be who we truly are. Not the version that feels as though they spend their life bowing down to everyone else and making everyone else happy at the cost of our own self empowerment and happiness.

Boundaries can be challenging for 5th line people to put in place, because we want to be seen, celebrated and loved. However, when we are merely fulfilling the needs of someone else when we know that’s not what we want to be doing, it will be met with bitterness and you’ll probably feel empty. This is why boundaries are brilliant, because they leave us feeling empowered and you can start drawing people to you that truly want your magic.

A huge part of our journey is learning to step into our power and at first, that may seem ridiculously uncomfortable, because it means that we are dropping the notion that you CAN please everyone and that you CAN make everyone happy. Not only is that unrealistic, it’s not serving you in the slightest. Staying small and not owning who you truly are keeps your natural gifts hidden from the world and remember, you are here to be seen!

We have the potency within us to free people from believing that it’s okay to place these unrealistic expectations on others. The magic thing? You do this so effortlessly when you are living your life for you, with your nourishing boundaries up. You are here to help people return home to themselves and to help them embody their highest selves, not just the shadow aspect of them that so often rules their lives.


Line 1:

Building a solid foundation and leaning into our inner investigator is something I cannot stress enough to do. Our reputation not only relies on our seductive presence, it also relies on the fact that we know exactly what we are speaking about. Researching, studying, learning, gaining deeper insight into our chosen field is half of the journey for us. Without these solid foundations, there is nothing holding up our 5th line energy of being a powerful leader/guide.

Retreating into solitude so we can research and investigate to our heart's content is absolutely nourishing for us. This is where our wonderful Line 5 boundaries can come into play too. Setting boundaries around when/where/how we study for ourselves and for others will do wonders.

Through our research and learning, we continue to evolve and grow as a person, thus making us even more magnetic! 

When we have these solid foundations in place, we will know when we are ready to move. You may notice people seeking you out and inviting you into their worlds.

There is a fine line here, as in our shadow aspect, we may believe that you will never know enough and therefore miss potential opportunities because we are questioning ourselves. When we are in our highest frequency, we know that it’s correct to speak about what we know, what we have thoroughly researched and learned and nothing more. Again, the 5th line boundaries here are brilliant, because when we are out in the world with our knowledge, we are able to let those who seek us out know ‘I can help you with ‘abc’, not ‘xyz’ and therefore there are no expectations from those who seek our guidance that we are able to do something for them that is not in our realm of expertise. 

Let’s put the 5th line and the 1st line together:

The 5/1 is a very powerful profile to have. When we combine our passion with the research and investigation we undertake to dive deep into our chosen field/topic/expertise, we are not only a wealth of knowledge, but a very inspiring leader. People look to us because we know what we’re talking about and have the knowledge to back up what we are speaking about. As the 5/1 has what we call transpersonal karma, you may find that you naturally feel as though you gravitate toward working with others to help guide them in a very empowered way. 

You have a big heart for service!

When you combine your love of knowledge in your chosen field with your curated boundaries, you create a potent container that is very specific. Which is exactly what an expert is. You don’t claim to know everything about everything, you really laser in on your chosen passion and make waves in your field. Those waves draw people to us and our work has the ability to be incredibly transformative for those who enter into our world. 


Let's add in the Projector essence into the 5/1 profile: 

Double Projector!! We have the large projection field from being a projector, as well as the projection field from our 5th line, so out of all types, we have to be really in line with our strategy of waiting for the invitation. 

We draw people in very seductively through our penetrative aura, so it’s important that people come to us and even more important that we are invited in to give advice, as our words as ‘double’ projectors hit really deep. The line of communication needs to be very open from the receiving end or we will really turn people away with our intensity. Same thing with whatever our gifts are, whatever we are offering the world. We want to be really solid in that foundation (really leaning on the 1st line investigator energy) to get all of the information, know exactly what our beliefs are and where we stand, have a really concise framework and solid boundaries around what you are. It’s when you begin to be very open and over promise and underdeliver that the 5/1 Projector gets really knocked. 

It’s a powerful profile the 5/1, so we must understand how to utilise this appropriately. For our own reputation and for the person on the receiving end.

Especially as we are already so frequently misunderstood as Projectors, then adding the 5/1 on top of that, we have to really know our boundaries. Knowing what we can offer and knowing what's outside of our skillset. Which will then create a fair image to whoever we are working with. That need of overpromising, having no boundaries and overstepping the mark can get us into a lot of trouble. So it is really important to manage expectations around what you do, what you can offer and to really know that you’ve researched it and you can deliver those goods while waiting for people to come into your field.

If you were at a dinner party for example, the best thing to do is to wait and see who comes towards you, as you will draw people towards you and then after you’ve spoken to the person who has approached you at the dinner party, it’s great to actually disappear for a little bit. Completely leave the field and allow that person to come back to you on their terms. It’s not a good match when we are trying to pull people towards us. So it’s having that faith, that trust and that confidence in yourself as a 5/1 Projector that you will draw people into your field when you are in alignment with yourself.


Personal Experience as a 5/1 Projector:

As a 5/1 Projector myself, I followed the money in my first career and not my passion just based on society standards/family pressure (hello projections!) and went into pharmaceutical sales, which on paper sounded like an okay option as I was dealing with people and I have a background in science. Day 1 on the job I knew it wasn’t for me. I could feel it in my body. There was constriction, tightness and I overrode those feelings for 10 years which created a lot of suffering and depression, physical and emotional sickness and even though I was successful, it wasn’t aligned with where I knew I was meant to be. So I suffered the consequences of not feeling well and I felt bitter and angry because I was not being seen for what I was truly here to do. So because of that there was a deep frustration and pain. I kept trying to find something else to fix it with and it wasn’t until my second career when I pursued indigenous healing and ceremony that I started to feel actually seen and honoured. 

What NOT to do:

When I first started studying indigenous ceremony, within the first year I was trying to convince friends and family to take part in what I was doing, I was pulling people towards me that did not want to come in. As I was actively speaking to people and trying to pull them closer, I could feel them moving really far away. So much so that some people asked me not to talk to them about it! It was extremely frustrating because I really felt that my family and friends would benefit greatly, but because I wasn’t drawn in to talk about it and I was still researching it myself, it really backfired and I really turned away a lot of people as I was prematurely promoting something I hadn’t really gained mastery over and I wasn’t waiting to be invited in. From that, I learned quickly and I stopped talking to anybody about what I was doing.

From there, I graduated and continued to study and it was about after 6 years into my work where I had a much greater repertoire of what I was learning and what I was doing in that space that people then started coming towards me. Family members, friends engaging me saying ‘wow, I’m really interested in this work, tell me more about it’. From that place, the 5/1 Projector really has that golden path to speak because I’ve carried out the 1st line of investigating/researching/studying and then the 5th line I really waited for people to come toward me. I put boundaries up for myself that I wasn’t going to speak to anyone about my work, that they would come to me when they felt drawn in.

Best advice for a 5/1 is to find something you are passionate about and not to focus on being seen, not to focus on getting out there, but actually to deeply investigate whatever your passion is and become an expert in that field.

A few tips for 5/1 Human Design Projectors:

  • Boundaries, boundaries, boundaries!
  • Research your passions and become an expert in your field
  • Have awareness around whether you are actively trying to pull people toward you, or if they are naturally gravitating your way
  • Allow yourself time to retreat into solitude to empty out from other people's projections and simultaneously study your passion
  • Time in nature is powerful for all Projectors


A Famous 5/1 Projector:

Looking at someone who spends their life in the public eye can really help us see how things play out. Even looking at friends/family who have a particular energy really helps to give us a deeper understanding into the 5/1 Projector. 


Nelson Mandela:

Nelson Mandela was a 5/1 Splenic Projector, the former President of South Africa.

You can really see his 5/1 profile shine here. Being ‘on stage’ and being seen is energetically correct for a 5/1, so too is the ability to be a fierce leader. He stood up for what he believed in and was extremely knowledgeable, thanks to the wealth of knowledge he had at his fingertips from utilising his Line 1 energy of investigating and researching.

His Line 5 energy attributed to his powerful presence, he definitely had the ability to draw people in and he was an inspirational guide to hundreds of thousands of people globally.

Interestingly enough, Nelson Mandela had no defined ‘motors’ (sacral, root, solar plexus, heart) defined in his chart, however the very fact he was invited into leadership by the people who wanted his guidance gave him the energy required to play his role at a very high level.

Some questions from the community about being a 5/1 Projector:


@shazamam: ‘When diving deep into a particular subject of interest and wanting to master the skill/system, how can we know when we’re ready to share? I always feel like there’s more to know before sharing just in case I haven’t mastered it enough.

For a 5/1, there is always more to know! I like to view this in a positive light and take into consideration that there are many different levels of mastery in our chosen fields.We may reach the first level of mastery where we know that we have the knowledge and the backing of information on a particular topic that we can start sharing about. We’ll know this is correct as people will be drawn to us and we will be invited in to share about it. When we have our firm 5th line boundaries in place, we then create a container where the expectations of others are not higher than they need to be, as we would have already explained that I can help you with ‘abc’ only. From there, we might like to go even deeper on a particular topic in our field and then add that to our list of expertise further down the track.

This then stops the pattern of over promising and under delivering.  We do carry the shadow aspect of thinking that we will never know enough, and this can be due to past circumstances and conditioning. Taking part in active deconditioning is very helpful in this instance. 

@lisak808: ‘How to get the 5th line to be seen (instead of the 1st line), so we can bring our new solutions for the future to the masses? I’m a 5/1 Splenic and struggle with isolation, not belonging and have a hard time bringing my inspirations to form. If I do get them out they are not really ‘seen’ and short lived.

This is a huge aspect for many 5/1 Projectors. Due to being so deeply misunderstood and projected upon for so long, we can feel like it’s really unsafe to be who we truly are. This can lead to isolation and feeling like we don’t belong. My advice would be to not focus on wanting to be seen. Our aura speaks for us and as magnetic and alluring as an aligned 5/1 can be, it can go the complete opposite way for us when we are striving to be seen and not focusing on creating the solid foundations (from our 1st line). Without the solid foundations, there is nothing for our greatness to stand upon and be held by. As a 5/1 Projector, the ‘wait’ can seem painfully slow if we are focusing on the very thing we can’t control, which is whether or not someone will be drawn to us. When we focus on our passions and mastering what it is that we want to share with the masses, the invites will come, which in turn means you will be seen. It’s hard when we so desperately want to be seen, so we push our magic out into the world and end up feeling bitter due to it not being the right time. 

@madhavendradas108: ‘How can a 5/1 attract invitations for their life purpose or career?

Focus on your passions and mastering them. As a 5/1 Projector, you have a very magnetic aura and one that speaks for itself when you are in true alignment. Ask yourself, ‘am I only focusing on ‘xyz’ so I’ll be invited in, or do I really care deeply about mastering my passions so that I can be a powerful guide for others?’ 

When we discover what lights us up, we want to scream it from the rooftops, we want everyone to be a part of it. In doing so, we believe that if we just pull one person in, then the rest will follow. When in actual fact, if we are trying to pull anyone in, we are out of alignment with ourselves, because that’s not how our frequency works. When we are deep in mastery mode and gaining so much wisdom from what we are investigating, it creates a buzz within us that radiates out into the world. People can feel this and when the time is right, you will be asked about your chosen field. I like to view the ‘waiting to be invited’ as a space for me to continue soaking up every ounce of knowledge I can, it shows me that there is more to learn and I use that time very wisely, knowing that my gifts will be shared from a very knowledgeable place when the time is right. 

There were so many brilliant questions that we have also answered some of them in our 5/1 in-depth offering! You can find out more about that offering right here.

Lots of experimenting with life through trial and error (Phase 1 for Line 6) before retreating away to nourish yourself by being in your own energy. Deep reflection of your first phase through alchemising and transmuting what you have experienced (Phase 2 for Line 6) for periods of time before retreating away to nourish yourself with alone time and your passions. Sharing your wisdom and life experiences with those who seek you out (Phase 3 for Line 6) before retreating away to nourish yourself with alone time and your hobbies.

6/3: Role Model/Martyr 2.4%

Your focus is more outwardly focused, wanting to help others correct their personal karma while experiencing the three phases below. 

Phase 1: (see above 'Line 6' for phases) Deep trial and error. No need to force yourself to 'have it all together' as this is where you are figuring things out. You can find peace knowing that things may bloom for you a bit later in life.

Phase 2: The trial and error phase starts to calm down over these next few years, you start to alchemise your experiences and look at things in a different light.

Phase 3: Sharing your profound experiences with those who seek you out and sharing your wisdom about what these experiences have taught you.


As you can see, the profiles bring a huge flavour to our Human Design charts. I embrace my profile as I know it's something that will be with me throughout my life. It's very freeing to work with your specific profile, instead of against it, even if that feels frustrating at the start.

Before we go any further, it is very important to state that there are so many factors in our individual charts that can see the 'generalisations' of Human Design types/profiles/authority change. Not everything we read/learn/hear about our particular charts will always resonate. Our charts don't take into account our life experiences, so there is no way anyone could possibly determine exactly who you are and what makes you tick simply by looking at your chart. Human Design is a beautiful guide, an amazing snapshot of the sky at the very time you were born that can absolutely tell us a lot, but not everything. We here at The Projector Movement honour everyone as individuals whilst using Human Design as a tool to dive deeper. We are not here to fit ourselves into our chart because that is what 'someone told us about ourselves'. Our charts are a guide to our life and when we choose to embody our qualities, not just mentally take note of what our chart says, life gets to unfold as it intended. 


Each profile comes with a personal, transpersonal or juxtaposition karma in this lifetime. 

I would like to preface this point by saying that I'm using the word karma with this meaning:

'The opportunity to heal and balance in the present and to shine a light on past consequences/actions in order to grow'

It is not there to punish us, it is there to show us where we have space to grow. It may or may not involve experiences with other people. If it does involve other people, it is of no coincidence that the people in your life right now are there for a reason.  

You can see this when you view karma in it's wonderful state, when amazing things start happening to you because you've done amazing things for others, with no sense of expectation.

Whichever you are, personal/transpersonal karma or juxtaposition, you are here to always make your way back to your truth. Sometimes it takes 'going off on a tangent' to realise that you're off track. No need to judge yourself, just bring it back to what serves you most. 

Personal Karma:

If you have a small number in your profile first (3/5 for example), you are here to correct your own personal karma, you have a more inward journey. Everything else that is meant for you will happen naturally when you correct your own karma first. Inner work is powerful for you, as it acts as a catalyst for everything you may be calling in. Things like impact, abundance, influence, success. This is not to say that you ignore everyone and everything around you and make your life all about yourself, however the deep need to move through your 'stuff' is so that you can step into a very discerning and fortified version of yourself.

Transpersonal Karma:

If you have the larger number in your profile first (5/1 for example), then you are here to help others correct their own karma. This does not mean that you forget about yourself and put everyone else first, it means that when you have a beautiful balance of helping others, whilst living within your own fortified boundaries,  you can start to swim in the slipstream of impact, influence, success and abundance. You may find that this has been playing out for you in your life without you even realising. There can be an energy here of 'projection', as people see you as the 'teacher/helper/guide' and come to subconsciously expect this from you. You are not here JUST to help others, so it's up to you to be discerning when you are in these situations. Are you helping out of obligation? 

If so, then this is where you can step into your power and let the other person know that it's not serving you anymore to be interacting in this way, thus bringing in the lesson to the other to help them look inward and correct their karma, all while correcting your own by putting that healthy boundary in place. Just another reason to clear out your aura and energy field each day. 


This applies to the 4/1 profile only and is something we will dive into when we reach that particular profile in this series.

What is Human Design?


In 1987, a man by the name of Ra Uru Hu had a mystical experience where he was guided and given instruction by what he termed as “The Voice” to combine the ancient teachings of Astrology, The I’Ching, The Kabbalah, and The Chakras alongside modern science of Quantum Mechanics, Astronomy, Genetics and Biochemistry. The synthesis of these ancient teachings from different parts of the world combined with contemporary science created Human Design, a powerful, accurate, and beautiful system that lays out the blueprint on how to navigate YOUR life.


What I like about Human Design is that it’s not a belief system. You don’t have to believe in how the system was birthed. The founder, Ra, simply said to apply the knowledge that pertains to you and simply see if it works. More importantly, this system is specific to you. This is because of how Human Design works. What this system does is it takes the time, date, and place of your birth and produces a chart (known as a BodyGraph) that looks like the one below. In other words, you were imprinted with specific energy at the moment of your birth, as well as 3 months prior to your birth.

If you want to learn about how to read your BodyGraph, then click on the image below (or here) to watch the video we created that guides you step by step, so you can understand how to navigate your own chart. 

So, there is no one person that has the same BodyGraph. But this system does categorize humans into 4 main types. These 4 types are Generators (which includes Manifesting Generators), Projectors, Manifestors, and Reflectors. Generators have an open and enveloping aura. Projectors have an absorbing and focused aura. Manifestors have a closed and repelling aura. And Reflectors have a resistant and sampling aura.


The most important gift Human Design has to offer humanity is our decision-making strategy. Based on what type you are, will determine how you best make decisions. So if you’re a Projector, this means you have to wait to be recognized and invited for the big opportunities in life (e.g., home, career, love, and relationships). Waiting to be recognized and invited is the first step in knowing how to move forward in life. 

Until next time,

Charlie, Aimee + Sarah
