What is behind the scenes that makes people act, behave and pursue their dreams the way that they do? “The answer my friend is blowing in the wind”, or that is how Bob Dylan might put it. From the Human Design perspective the answer is in the solar winds, or I should say the solar rotation that affects the stream of neutrino energy that sets up our wiring at birth. A key piece of that wiring or your Human Design is the energy from the sun and earth that create the incarnation cross. This week we are going to talk about the cross of the Sleeping Phoenix.
This cross brings together a powerful combination of gates including the 34-20 channel of Charisma. This channel is a motorized energy which carries energy from the Sacral center to the Throat center. This channel defines both those centers and makes anyone who has it, including all Sleeping Phoenix’s, a Manifesting Generator type. So there is a lot of energy “to do” in this cross.
However, I have always felt that this cross carries a bit of the mystical qualities of the mythical Phoenix, rising from the ashes followed by a flurry of activity that creates something magical, then bursting into flames and turning to ashes, to rise again on another day . Thus, I see pronounced cycles in this incarnation cross.
Where do the cycles come from you ask? Well if we start with the 34-20, this channel is powered by the sacral and the sacral has a built in cycle. A defined cycle starts churning when we wake up and powers us through the day and then burns out at night. So we have a daily cycle. Now add to it the gate 59 a gate of reproductive energy. Reproduction has a cycle that is much longer. As humans, our gestation period is 9 months and the cycle of being fertile for woman is from about 13 to 50. Add in gate 55, the gate of Spirit and you have another cyclical element. This gate is in an emotional channel that flows in a wave up and down over time. If you think about it, your spirit may be always present, but there are times when it is quiet and times that it bursts forth. So together we have blend of cycles ranging from daily to when years.
Bob Dylan has been that Phoenix of sorts. He has been a constant in the music scene, but over the years he has risen to prominence and then faded back and then risen again, time after time.
Scarlett Johansson burst on the scene as a young actress and was very present for a few movies and I would say has faded a bit as of late. If you follow my logic look for Scarlett to burst forth again at some point in the future.
Here are the gate names, the I Ching names, followed by brief descriptions for the 4 gates of the cross of the Sleeping Phoenix.
Gate 34 – Power – This is raw sacral power and the gate with the most potential energy in the system as it can create three motorized channels.
Gate 20 – Now – Contemplation – This is the voice of now, perhaps your Facebook status?.
Gate 55 – Spirit – Abundance – This is the emotional energy and expression of spirit.
Gate 59 – Sexuality – Dispersion – This is the energy of sexuality and the drive to continue the species.Here are charts for Bob Dylan, Scarlett Johansson and Barb Andrew, all born into the cross of the Sleeping Phoenix.
