Left Angle Cross of The Alpha In Human Design

Posted by Alyssia Webb on

Picture a leader with a wild imagination. Someone who can dream up the impossible and then make it happen. That's the Left Angle Cross of the Alpha.


You're the kind of person who sees the world differently than everyone else. You have a unique perspective and you're not afraid to share it. You're also a visionary, always looking ahead to the future.

But you're not just a dreamer, you're a doer. You have the drive and determination to make your ideas a reality. You're a natural leader, and people are drawn to your energy and enthusiasm.

You're a bit of a wild card though. You're unpredictable and your choices leave a lot of people guessing. But that's kinda what makes you so exciting and magnetic.  

You've probably noticed that people are drawn to your charisma and brilliant ideas. But don't let it go to your head. You're still just a human being, with all the flaws and foibles that come with it.

For example, you  remember the dreamy nature I just praised you for? Well..you're always coming up with new and innovative ideas, but sometimes you have trouble following through on them.

You can also be a bit of a control freak. Typical alpha stuff (shrugs) You like to be in charge, and you don't like it when things don't go your way.

But despite your flaws, you're a good person. You're kind, compassionate, and always willing to help others. You also have a brilliant mind that has the potential to do real good in the world.


Tips For The LAC of Alpha


  • When you're feeling overwhelmed by your own brilliance, take a deep breath and remember that you're not the only one who's smart. There are plenty of other geniuses out there, even if they don't have your unique combination of gifts.
  • When you're tempted to use your power to manipulate others, remember that true leadership comes from serving others, not  controlling them.
  • When you're lost in your own imagination, remember that the real world is where the magic happens. So get out there and start creating!


...let's get to know your gates

 Gate 41: Fantasy + Contraction


Gate 41 is located in the Root Center, which is where our survival instinct, grounding, and vitality are housed. 

This is the gate of fantasy and daydreams, the one that always has you dreaming up new and exciting possibilities. You're the one who sees the world as a playground of potential, and you're always up for a new adventure.

But this is also the gate of contraction, which means you have a tendency to get caught up in your own head and overthink things. You can be afraid to take action on your dreams because you're worried about what might happen if you fail.

But here's the thing about Gate 41: you're meant to dream big. You're meant to go after what you want, even if it scares you.

So here's a little piece of advice from me to you: don't be afraid to contract. Don't be afraid to focus on one thing at a time and make it happen. 


The positive expression of Gate 41 is to honor one's hopes and dreams and watch them evolve through fulfillment.

The negative expression of Gate 41 is to become stuck in fantasies or to be too afraid to take action on one's dreams. 


Gate 31: Influence + Democracy

Gate 31, also known as the Gate of Influence, is located in the Throat Center and is associated with leadership, communication, and influencing others for the good of the collective.

Gate 31 makes you a natural leader with a powerful voice and a clear vision for the future. Hone it, and it will  give you the ability to inspire and motivate others to follow your lead.

But don't be a dictator. Be a democratic leader who listens to the collective and makes decisions that consider the needs of everyone involved.

Remember that empowered people empower others, and commit to creating a world where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.

You are here to be a master of communication with the ability to articulate your ideas and visions in clear, concise, and inspiring ways.

Here are some things to keep in mind as you live your life with Gate 31:

  • Trust your intuition. You have a deep inner knowing that will guide you in the right direction.
  • Listen to the collective. You are not here to lead alone. You are here to serve the collective and help others achieve their goals.
  • Be clear and concise in your communication. People are drawn to your vision, so make sure you are able to communicate it effectively.
  • Don't be afraid to take risks. You are a natural leader, and you are here to make a difference in the world. Don't be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone and take risks.

Gate 44: Energy + Alertness 

Gate 44 in Human Design is the Gate of Alertness. It is located in the Spleen Center, which is associated with intuition and survival.

You have a keen eye for patterns and the ability to see the big picture. You are a natural leader,  with a deep capacity for listening and understanding others and knack for spotting opportunities and making the most of them.

You are here to help us break free from the patterns of the past and create a new future. You have the wisdom to know that every experience is an opportunity for growth and transformation.

Gate 44 isnt without its challenges. You can be afraid to repeat the mistakes of the past. This can lead to stagnation and an inability to adapt to new situations. It's important to remember that every moment is an opportunity to learn and grow. Don't let your own negative patterns hold you back.

 Gate 24: Rationalization 

Gate 24 is the Gate of Rationalization, and is the reason you're all about understanding the underlying reasons for things. You're naturally curious and have a persistent drive to analyze and make sense of everything.

You're a deep thinker, who loves to ponder the big questions of life. You're also very good at seeing patterns and connections that others miss.

In your relationships, you bring your desire for understanding and your analytical abilities. You strive to understand your partners deeply, seeking to comprehend their thoughts, emotions, and motivations. This can lead to deep, meaningful connections, as you're often willing to delve into complex emotional landscapes and navigate difficult conversations.

However, your analytical nature can also create challenges in relationships. Sometimes you can get so caught up in understanding your partner that you forget to simply be present with them. You can also be critical of yourself and others, and you may have a tendency to overthink things.

It's important for you to remember that you don't have to understand everything. Sometimes, the best way to learn is simply to experience. And sometimes, the best way to connect with others is to simply be present with them, without judgment.
