What if we told you that there is a system that explains who you are and how to respond to the world around you in the best way possible to maximise your lived experience? A code (of sorts) in existence that combines astrology and personality types that decodes how you were built and how best to make your way in this world. It’s called Human Design and was created by a person named Ra Uru Hu (birth name: Alan Krakower) in the 1980s, following a clairaudient experience involving eight days of hearing a “Voice” who dictated a system for how we all work based on our time and place of birth.
We know this may all seem a little nutty. What’s interesting is that when you actually generate your Human Design Chart, also called a Bodygraph, you will be quite surprised by how much your chart describes you accurately.
What Is Human Design?
Human Design is a system that combines the teachings of astrology, quantum physics, The I Ching, the Kabbalah, and the Hindu-Brahmin chakra system. Your Human Design Chart or BodyGraph is calculated by your birth date, time, and place to reveal your genetic design from birth. The Human Design Chart presents a unique map of your Human Design Type – an understanding of where and how to access your body’s consciousness and subsequently how to live as your true self. Human Design allows you to understand your uniqueness and provides navigation to live in a way that aligns with who you really are. This allows you to engage in self-exploration and self-acceptance for who you are, instead of focusing on being something you’re not.
What Are the Different Human Design Types?
One of the fundamental concepts in the Human Design system is the distinction between different human design types. There are four types each reflecting a distinct strategy of interacting with the world and expressing our aura or energy that is perfect for them. These types are the Manifestor, Generator, Projector, and Reflector. Each type has its own set of strengths, challenges, and strategies for living authentically. We explore each Human Design Type in more detail below.

There are four different Human Design Types or Auras and each have their own Strategy. A Strategy is a way of being yourself and releasing what you are not. Your Strategy will support you to align with your natural-born energy, instead of behaving in ways that go against it.
About 9 percent of the population are Manifestors. They are natural initiators and have a powerful impact on those around them. Individuals who have been primary influences in history and initiators of change are likely to be Manifestors. The Manifestor Strategy is to inform others of their decisions before they take action. When a Manifestor shares with others, this naturally relaxes those around them and removes energetic resistance, allowing them to initiate in peace. When Manifestors are moving through life without informing others, they can feel emotions of anger as a result of the resistance they experience.
About 70 percent of the population are Generators and are considered to be the life force of the planet. A Generator always has a defined Sacral Center, which is the center of life and the core of our reproductive capacity. Literally, it is the energy for life and work, and it is the Generator that builds the world. Their Strategy is to respond, as opposed to initiate. When Generators initiate from a mental place vs. a sacral place, they can end up feeling deeply frustrated rather than satisfied in their life and work.
About 20 percent of the population are Projectors. Projectors are needed as an enormous resource for information in the future. Their Strategy is to wait for recognition and invitation and once activated they have the ability to see deeply into others. Projectors feel appreciated and acknowledged when invited and can be our most gifted guides. However, they often struggle with knowing when to offer their advice and how to balance their energy effectively. If they focus on the wrong set of people and therefore are not recognised they can become exhausted and bitter in life. Projectors are natural at mastering systems essential for humanity and when they use their energy appropriately they experience success.
About 1 percent of the population is likely Reflectors – a pretty rare find and very different from the other Human Design Types! So what exactly is a Reflector? If all nine of your Human Design Centers are open, then you are a Reflector, making you highly sensitive to your surroundings. Reflectors act as a mirror of society and have a uniquely adaptable Aura or Strategy that samples the energies of others around them and well, reflects them and sees things the way no one else can. Their ability to read others and their environment is a remarkable gift and when doing what they do best, Reflectors experience the wonder of life. However, if they end up identifying with what those they are mirroring, exhaustion and disappointment can ensue.
To truly grasp the depths of our Human Design, it is essential to understand our Human Design Chart, which acts as a compass in navigating our unique path. Once the Human Design Chart is known, a reading conducted by a trained and qualified Human Design practitioner can shed light on the nuances and intricacies of our true selves. It serves as a powerful tool for self-awareness and self-empowerment. Through an in-depth analysis of our chart, we can gain insights into our strengths, weaknesses, conditioning, and potential life purpose.
Exploring Human Design opens up a path to understanding our true essence, purpose, and unique traits. It provides a blueprint of our being, connecting us to our cosmic origins and enabling us to navigate the complexities of life with self-awareness, acceptance, and empowerment. From deciphering our Human Design Chart and Type, the Human Design framework offers a powerful tool for transforming our lives and embracing our authentic selves.
