Understanding the Type of a person and what is their Inner Authority can be immensely helpful in day-to-day relating. All homes, schools and places of business should have an idea of how to best support their people so that they are healthy, prosperous and thriving, yes?
Probably the most powerful and most important distinction is the difference between the emotional Inner Authority and the rest of the planet. With half of the planet having the Emotional Inner Authority, it is important to keep in mind that they move in a completely different way than those who do not have that motor in their chemistry.
Emotional people have a trajectory that brings life to them. Their golden key is surrender and patience in a hazy fog with hardly any clarity at all, ever. They can actually watch life unfold before them with their slow emotional way. They hardly have to make a decision. It is fascinating when you see this come into view.
Those who do not have the Emotional motor defined surrender and wait, as their golden key but they do it a little differently. There is no fog or haze clouding the mind. They have a clear window for the ride ahead. So, they can say “yes” or “no” in the moment, or “not now” and get what is correct if they are paying attention to the voice in the body, as life comes to them.
There is no haze, no fog, it is clear and they can move forward, instantly, with clarity. They can just feel it in the body, clearly, what is the next, correct direction.
It is important not to ask an “in the moment” person to wait and take their time. That is not good for them. Emotionally defined people tend to make this mistake with the open, non- Emotional people. Unconsciously, the emotional person knows that they move slow and then suggest to others to “take their time and to think about it”. That can actually be really disastrous for them.
It’s good to know if someone is an “in the moment” kind of person or “not now”, like the emotional.
Once you get past the emotional and non-emotional differences, next, you see the way in which the auras impact each other. This is where you can easily see, if there is really any compatibility or just how “bumpy” the ride is ahead with your friend.
“Easy Compatibility” is one of the “toys” of Human Design. You can look at how two people come together and whether or not it is a good fit, just by looking at the Centers and the Channels.
This is not a guide, I must caution you. This is not a tool to finding your lover, or your friends or your job. This is a “toy” that offers a fun way for you to watch the mechanics in action. If you are considering a love relationship, you can use some of these basic, simple tenets of Human Design to observe the mechanics. It is fun to watch how this “toy” works as you move about and relate with others.
When you look at the composite of two charts, you can see how many Centers are defined or open in a couple’s togetherness. For instance, “John” has five centers defined in his chart and “Mary” has four centers defined in her chart. When you put the two charts together, you get six Centers colored and three Centers white. That equates to a “6 and 3” composite, a pattern in chemistry.
This reveals, on a very basic, general level the way in which two people enjoy and spend time together. This is what you see in observation:
9 and 0, Nowhere to Go
8 and 1, Lets have some Fun
7 and 2, Work to Do
6 and 3, Better to be Free
5 and 4, Not a Relationship Anymore
5 and 4, Not a Relationship Anymore
When there are five Centers defined and four open in a composite, such as “5 and 4”, no matter how two people feel like ‘best friends’, it will always fall apart or become distant, in some way, at some point.
Nothing has to happen for the relationship to fall apart. It just stops one day out of the blue. It is strange!
6 and 3, Better to Be Free
When there are six Centers defined in togetherness and three open, as in 6 and 3, it’s best with brief encounters. Usually people with “6 and 3” do not stay friends for longer than a few years.
There really is no glue there to hold them together in common vision. They may stay connected through out the years but they go in drastically different directions.
7 and 2, Work to Do
A lot of couples begin to pair up at the “7 and 2”, Work to Do composite. There is just enough difference to make it exciting and thrilling for the mind and just enough likeness to fall into the trap of the electromagnetics. It is very tricky.
Often times, people misunderstand this composite to mean that two people are to share their life work together. But it means almost the opposite. “7 and 2” Work to Do, means that the two of you are experiencing life from two totally different perspectives. The mind of one partner plays with one open Center (Spleen above) and the mind of the other partner plays with the another open Center (Heart Center above) in the composite. This gives the sensation that you are on two different planets and not really seeing “eye to eye” on things.
With the gaping difference in perspective and being on different pages mentally, it can create tremendous control battles between lovers. It can be a lot of work and a huge distraction.
It can be a little stormy and not too much fun, depending on chemistry. If there are big differences, such as Type or Inner Authority, you are definitely going to feel the “work to do”.
8 and 1, Let’s Have Some Fun
When there is an “8 and 1, Lets have some Fun”. Two people can share the time of their life with play and laughter. The potential is there. The “8 and 1” provides the conditions where two people can relate on a mental level, usually, fairly well. It can be really good.
There is also the opportunity to stay life long friends with great appreciation for each other. It’s fairly easy if it doesn’t get complicated with a romantic affair.
9 and 0, Nowhere To Go
With all of the Centers filled up in “9 and 0”, there really is “nowhere to go”. The two are content to sit on the porch, sip their tea and settle into a fulfilling union of dinners, bed and home. That is, on the surface level. It can feel really, really good or it can get terribly boring. It really depends on chemistry.
Most people enjoy this kind of togetherness if they are resonant in chemistry. It can feel as though you are hanging out with your best friend and you really don’t need anyone else around. Or it can be suffocating if the chemistry is not resonant.
After you see how many Centers are filling up in the composite, you can go to the next level of compatibility and see how the Channels are connecting.
Companionship, Dominance, Compromise and Electromagnetic
A Companion Channel is when both of you share the same whole Channel in your bodygraphs. When we share a Companion Channel with someone it feels really, really good. There is great understanding and identification in the way we think and process. It can be an automatic “Best Friend” Channel if the rest of the chemistry is resonant and complementary.
Then there is the Dominance. Dominance is where one person has a whole Channel and the other has no activations in that Channel.
This can bring great confusion when moving through life together and trying to understand each other. It can also bring skills that compliment the other and bring greater ease in tasks. It all depends on chemistry.
The Compromise Channels are probably the most challenging. This is when one person has the whole Channel and the other person has only half of the Channel.
When this happens, there is a tendency towards power trips or control over. The one with only one gate feels that it has this sense in skill or awareness and wants to express it. The other has the whole Channel and does not feel that it needs the other person’s input. That is how it operates on a very basic, general level. Watching it over time, you begin to see the power plays and how one person is being forced to compromise.
And then there are the Electromagnetics. Those are the most, trickiest of all. They can hook us up really tight with the wrong person. They tend to create a lot of babies, great sex, beautiful music, poetry and delicious food. They also concern traditional mating and bonding rituals and the bargains, contracts and agreements that come with making these “hook ups”.
Electromagnetics are when two gates meet, that are sitting on either end of a Channel. The Electromagnetics are dramatically different in “flavor” and nature when they occur on the right hand side of the bodygraph, the emotional side.
The Electromagnetics on the right hand side of the bodygraph are about relating.
When two gates meet each other on the emotional side, you think, “Cool, we’re a great match”. It will feel delicious and it will stir your juices but there is more to come. That is only the sensation of the two gates finding each other and being tickled and thrilled. You can act on it or not, it is up to you. When you act on the electromagnetic, expect a lot of distraction from your work and life path. That is usually what happens. However, there are exceptions.
Electromagnetics can be great when it comes to communication. I watch people who hook each other up mentally, really enjoy their conversations.
Only your inner guide gets you to the right place with the right people.
And it usually has nothing to do with the compatibility of romance.
Use this “toy” to observe and learn just how amazing, accurate and simple the mechanics really are. It is a wonderful tool to bring the mechanics “alive” in your view.
