HD Rx Week 17: Responsibility

human design gate 27

Hi there, and welcome to a brand new week! I hope you were able to soak in the transformative energy of last week, it was a very high vibe time for me that I’m so grateful for. This week the Sun moves into Gate 27 on April 22 where it will stay through the evening of the 27th.


This week is all about Gate 27. If you have Gate 27 defined (colored in) in your chart, you will notice this transit within yourself, if you don’t have Gate 27 defined then you will mostly notice this energy within your interactions. Either way, you will have access to it and will have the opportunity to take advantage of this transit. Click here to get your chart, if you haven’t already done so.

Gate 27 holds the energy of Mother Theresa; holding the nurturing and education of your tribe at the highest importance. This energy tends to be expressed in holding others’ needs as a priority above your own, so I’d like to shine a light on anywhere you may be experiencing this to be more mindful of finding a balance and boundaries.

At its high vibe, Gate 27 will take ownership of what’s theirs and hold others accountable to do the same. Teaching others this lesson of responsibility can be best seen by example.

At its low vibe, Gate 27 can be prone to try to fix everyone else’s problems, ultimately trying to take responsibility for someone else’s happiness. It’s so important to remember that when you lovingly try to fix someone else’s problems for them, you disempower them. They’ll be lead to think that they can’t handle things on their own. While the intention is pure, it will still teach the wrong values.



Gate 27 is represented by The Empress, which is the embodyment of nurturing mother energy.

As the Sun transits, there are ideal days each week to do certain things. Here’s how they fall this week:

MONDAY: Today is for planning your week ahead. It’s an ideal day to make sure you have everything you need in your schedule, send confirmations for upcoming meetings, meal prep, write your weekly to-do list and set your intentions for the next few days. To get you started, I’ve included some thought provoking journal prompts to get you thinking about how to maximize this transit.


  • Who am I caring for?

  • Is there anyone I’m enabling?

  • Do I feel energized or drained?

  • What self care can I give to myself this week?

  • Who is caring for me?

  • Are they taking on my responsibilities?

TUESDAY: Today is a day where you may get noticed and called out. Think of the 2nd line Hermit on the Hexagram - she stays secluded in her little cave until someone notices her and calls her out, and at that time she is engaged with the world around her. A great day to stay put until a friend asks you for coffee, also not the best day to approach your boss about a desired promotion.

WEDNESDAY: Today is a day of running into things, things catching you by surprise.  It could be good or bad, such as getting unexpected news or bumping into an old friend that you’re happy to see. Can you get unexpected news on other days of the week? Of course, but today is the day when that energy is the most heightened. As far as the types go, (non-emotional) Projectors and Generators thrive on days like today and yesterday, because the energy is in their favor to receive invitations and have something to respond to.

THURSDAY: Today is a day of completion via action. It could be low vibe or high vibe, such as someone getting fired or someone closing escrow and getting the keys to their new home. It doesn’t have to be that big, it can even mean finally going to your cable provider to cancel your service since you only watch Netflix anyhow. Since this is considered a transpersonal day, it’s a day where people are more likely to be friendly. Save your outside errands (especially shopping, this is the best shopping day of the week) for today and you will face them with more ease. Today, tomorrow and the day after that are going to be the best days for non-emotionally defined Manifestors and Manifesting Generators.

FRIDAY: Today’s theme is practicality. Yesterday was the best shopping day of the week, but today is when you want to do your practical shopping like buying groceries or bringing your car for an oil change. People are more likely to notice and judge one another today, and reputations can be at stake. For example, if you’re going to be late for work today for whatever reason, your boss may be quick to judge you as unreliable ... even if it was outside of your control. On the flip side of that, today can really be your day to shine. Important meetings and presentations should be saved for today, the energy to impress your audience will be in your favor. Now is also the time to ask your boss for that promotion :)

SATURDAY: Today is the last day of the transit week, and therefore the day to relax in the way that’s best for you. If you’re pre Saturn Return however, today may be a day to do something wild. If you’re a parent, know that today your little one may be extra rambunctious. Regardless of where you’re at, today will be a day to reflect. Below I’ve got some journal prompts to get you started.


  • How can I create a healthy boundary if I need to stop enabling?

  • What is my energy level now?

  • What felt good to me in regards to self care this week?

  • What can I do to take back my responsibilities that I let fall onto others?

  • What can I do to give back to the people that are caring for me?

Until next time,
