What is an Incarnation Cross?

The Incarnation Cross is your life theme and it is made up of the 4 most prominent gates in your bodygraph chart. Your life theme will gradually come into its full expression as you learn to live authentically. The Incarnation Cross usually comes in to shake things up and bring you to your fullest expression.

Reading Your Incarnation Cross 

The first set of numbers in your incarnation cross represents your personality and are referred to as your conscious sun and earth gates. In Human Design, conscious gates are those that are activated by the planets at the time of your birth. They are part of your personality design, and they represent the themes and qualities that you are most aware of and that shape your personality.
Your conscious sun represents 70% of your personality and is filled with the things that make you unique and special. It is the place where you'll find your greatest strength and power.
Your conscious earth is your grounding force. When expressed from a place of power, you feel grounded and supported enough to thrive. 
The 2nd set of numbers are located on the top, left side of your Human Design chart, which is made up of gates that were activated 88 days before you were born. These gates are considered to be your "shadow" gates because they represent the parts of yourself that you may have suppressed or disowned. 
The unconscious sun in Human Design is the gate that represents your hidden potential. It is the part of you that you may not be aware of, but that has the power to transform your life. 

The unconscious earth in Human Design is the gate that represents your spiritual connection and your path to enlightenment. It is the part of you that is connected to something greater than yourself, and it is the source of your deepest wisdom and guidance.

The Left Angle Cross Of Masks 

The Left Angle Cross of Masks gifts you with a unique blend of qualities, including deep listening, natural leadership, breakthrough insights, and complex communication.
Your gift of deep listening allows you to connect with others on a profound level. You are able to hear their stories and understand their perspectives, without judgment or agenda. This makes you a trusted confidante and advisor.
Your natural leadership qualities enable you to guide others towards collective goals. You are able to inspire and motivate others to take action. You are also able to see the big picture and make strategic decisions.
Your breakthrough insights allow you to see the world in new and innovative ways. You are able to come up with creative solutions to problems. You are also able to see the potential for change and transformation.
Your complex communication skills allow you to communicate your ideas clearly and effectively. You are able to connect with people from all walks of life. You are also able to articulate complex ideas in a way that is easy to understand.
On the flip side, you are easily influenced by the energy of others, which can lead you to take on their masks or personas. This can make it difficult for you to stay true to yourself and your own unique perspective. 

...and its gates

Gate 13

 This gate gives you a natural ability to connect with others deeply and hear their stories with empathy and compassion. You are a safe space for people to share their secrets and pain, and you have a gift for helping them see their experiences in a new light.
Your gift of listening is not just about being a shoulder to cry on. It's also about holding the space for others to find their own wisdom and to make their own decisions. You are not here to fix anyone's problems, but you are here to offer them support and guidance.
Sometimes, your gift of listening can be draining. It can be difficult to hear the pain of others, and it can be hard to hold the space for them without taking on their emotions. But it's important to remember that your gift is a powerful one. It can help to heal people and to create a more compassionate world.

Gate 7

Gate 7 is the Gate of the Role of the Self, and it's located in the G Center of your Human Design chart. This gate is all about leadership and direction. You have an innate ability to provide direction and leadership to groups, teams, or organizations. Your leadership is not authoritarian, but rather democratic. You understand that the best way to lead is to get buy-in from others and to create a sense of shared purpose.

You also have a strong sense of self and purpose. You know your role in the world and you have the confidence to step into it fully. This inner certainty can serve as an inspiration to others, encouraging them to find their own path and purpose.

However, it's important to remember that Gate 7 is not always easy to live with. You can sometimes be on a power trip and insist that others bend to your will. You may also try to rally people around your personal beliefs rather than what is best for the collective.

If you find yourself struggling with the negative aspects of Gate 7, it's important to remember that you have the power to change. You can raise the frequency of this gate by practicing boundaries, setting clear expectations, and being mindful of your own power.

Here are some tips for living with Gate 7:

  • Be open to receiving guidance from others.
  • Don't be afraid to ask for help when you need it.
  • Be willing to share your power with others.
  • Lead from behind by showing others how to access their own inner power.
  • Be patient with yourself and others.
  • Remember that you are not alone.


Gate 43

Gate 43 is the Gate of Insight. It is located in the Ajna Center, which is the center of intuition and knowing. When this gate is activated, you have a natural ability to see patterns and connections that others may not see. You are also able to have sudden insights and breakthroughs that can lead to new ideas and solutions.

However, Gate 43 can also be a source of anxiety and fear. This is because you are so sensitive to the subtle energies around you, it can be difficult to filter out the noise and focus on your own inner wisdom. You may also worry that your insights are not valid or that others will not understand them.

The key to working with Gate 43 is to learn to trust your own intuition. When you have a feeling or a hunch, pay attention to it. Don't dismiss it just because it doesn't make sense to your rational mind. Also, be patient with yourself. It may take time to develop the confidence to trust your insights.

Here are some specific things you can do to work with Gate 43:

  • Spend time in nature. Nature is a great place to connect with your intuition and to clear away the noise of the everyday world.
  • Meditate. Meditation can help you to quiet your mind and to focus on your inner wisdom.
  • Journal. Journaling is a great way to record your insights and to track your progress.
  • Find a mentor or teacher who can help you to understand and develop your gift.

Gate 23

Gate 23 gives you the ability to assimilate complex ideas and translate them into digestible, actionable insights. You're a natural communicator, and you have a gift for speaking the truth in a way that people can understand.

You're also a bit of a maverick. You don't always follow the crowd, and you're not afraid to speak your mind, even if it means going against the grain. This can sometimes get you into trouble, but it also makes you a force for change.

The challenge for you is to learn to trust your intuition and to speak your truth even when it's not easy. When you do this, you have the power to initiate real transformation in the world.

So go out there and use your voice! The world needs your unique perspective.

Here are some specific things that people with Gate 23 are good at:

  • Communicating complex ideas in a clear and concise way
  • Seeing the big picture and understanding how different pieces fit together
  • Generating new ideas and solutions to problems
  • Challenging the status quo and sparking change
