HD Rx Week 16: Transformation

human design reading gate 3

Good evening, and welcome to an exciting week ahead! I hope you all had a chance to get some loose ends tied up last week, I sure did. This week the Sun moves into Gate 3 on the afternoon of April 16, and it’ll stay there until the 21st.


This week is all about Gate 3. If you have Gate 3 defined (colored in) in your chart, you will notice this transit within yourself, if you don’t have Gate 3 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.

Get ready, because Gate 3 is all about transformation. People with this definition naturally love to make changes, especially in the workplace to improve the experience for everyone as a whole. They will also usually find themselves woking in a field that creates change.

Remember that changes come with resistance at first. This is the Universe’s way of putting your ideas to the test and to see if this is actually something you’re willing to go through with. Think of this as the Universe’s way of filtering through changes that aren’t right and protecting humanity from a bunch of crazy changes.

The challenge with this energy is to keep in mind that you can’t rush transformation. So get comfortable, because being still in these moments of waiting is essential.


Gate 3 is expressed through the Death Card. This is one of my favorites in the deck, because it indicates the end of something old so that something new can start to grow. In short, it means transformation.

Deck: Golden Thread Tarot

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

TUESDAY: 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.


  • What changes need to happen in my life?

  • What are my first steps going to be?

  • What changes am I currently going through?

  • What happens when I try to rush transformation?

  • How do the results feel when I am patient?

WEDNESDAY: 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.

THURSDAY: 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.

FRIDAY: 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.

SATURDAY: 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 :)

SUNDAY: 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.


  • What are my next steps to support changes I’m wanting to make?

  • Did I face any resistance in trying to make changes?

  • What transformations did I witness happening around me?

  • How can I get comfortable with being patient during times of transformation?

Until next time,
