HD Rx Week 18: Rationalization

Human Design Reading Gate 24

Hi loves, and welcome to a brand new week! We are moving into an energy around productivity and re-evaluating your strategy. The Sun is moving into Gate 24 around dinnertime on the 27th and will stay there through May 2.


This week is all about Gate 24. If you have Gate 24 defined (colored in) in your chart, you will notice this transit within yourself, if you don’t have Gate 24 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.

This week brings us an energy of looking for positivity in our progress. As I’m sure you’ve experienced before, we all experience setbacks now and then … and even so, they never bring us completely back to where we started. We will have always learned something and then having a new opportunity to re-evaluate and make the little changes to try again.

This energy tells us that taking two steps forward and one step back still results in having taken one step forward. It is a blessing to feel aligned, as it is to be forced away from something that wasn’t going to be right for you in the end.

Human Design Gate 24


The Judgement card is perfect for Gate 24. It forces us to take an honest look at how things are going so that we can figure out where we need to make changes.

Deck: The Fountain Tarot

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

SATURDAY: Tonight is for planning your week ahead. It’s an ideal night 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.


  • Where am I meeting resistance in my life?

  • What areas of my life am I in the midst of some setbacks?

  • What areas of my life feel really good?

  • How can I re-tweak my plans to move forward with more flow?

  • Are the goals that I’ve been working toward still feeling aligned with me?

  • What adjustments should I make for my goals?

SUNDAY: 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.

MONDAY: 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.

TUESDAY: 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.

WEDNESDAY: 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 :)

THURSDAY: 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 needs to change in my life so that I’m not feeling so much resistance?

  • How can I view my setbacks as blessings?

  • How did it feel to let go of the goals that are no longer feeling right for me?

  • What new steps can I start to make to reach my re-vamped goals?

Until next time,
