In these mutative times we are periodically challenged by unexpected circumstances. This current pandemic is a global challenge that took the world by surprise. To sustain the peace and wellbeing we seek in Human Design, we need to find ways to meet the challenges we’ll face in the weeks to come, cope with the circumstances, and not feel overwhelmed. We need to find a place of balance between absolute unconcern, and the fear or even panic we are sometimes seeing.
Human Design gives us the tools to steer through such challenging times. As always, it is up to us to make the right choices — choices that impact our own lives and the lives of others. There is nothing quite like having inner Authority to rely on when confronted with challenging decisions, or even just small daily ones. We can find balance and peace amidst the chaos, and carry those gifts out into the world.
Many of you will have heard of Ra’s teaching about Global Cycles, and that the current cycle we live in is coming to an end in 2027. We are now on the cusp of that great change. It is common during such a shift to have things intensify drastically; we have seen such shifts in the breakdown of institutions in recent years.
In times of turmoil it is helpful to put things into perspective; this situation is, after all, part of a program that is unfolding according to a greater plan. Throughout these cycles we have seen this happening time and again — a destruction of old forms to clear the way for what comes next.
One of the best tools we have is observing planetary transits, as transits reflect the program that is unfolding, step by step. The transits of outer planets through Gates 60 and 61 have prepared us in the past; they signaled massive pressure for mutation when Pluto entered Gate 61 in January 2019, followed by Saturn in December 2019, activating a need for breakthrough to new insights that can profoundly change our concepts about life. Additionally, Neptune started its transit through Gate 63 in 2016; that transit has led to increased doubts and extreme uncertainty in areas of life we have relied on for generations.
With the current transit of Saturn through Gate 60 of Limitation, this pressure for mutation concerns our existential and material wellbeing and we are called upon to be extremely resourceful and resilient in dealing with our current limitations. The virus affects us both physically and economically, and becomes a powerful agent for global transmutation. This transit is a precursor to Pluto’s transit of this Gate starting in Spring 2022, at which point the pressure for mutation will intensify.
In such times we can find strength and support in our communities. In that spirit, we would like to offer you, our readers, two free lectures that we hope will give you some answers, and provide reassurance and comfort during these uncertain times.
Stay well and be safe,

The world’s support mechanisms — everything we rely on — are slowly falling apart.
The Cross of Planning has been our background frequency (Global Cycle) since 1615, creating the global community we all recognize. But in 2027 the energy fueling all of these community structures comes to an end. It will be replaced by the Cross of the Sleeping Phoenix, which will have an entirely different effect.
At the 9th annual Human Design event in Toronto in 2010, Ra Uru Hu presented this lecture, a detailed analysis of our changing world.

“The mechanics of Human Design are extraordinary. They have never deceived me. And it's always risky business when you look at something that doesn't exist yet. But in the end, what makes this knowledge so very special is that it has revealed a program. It has revealed the mechanisms, the deepest mechanisms of the way in which we are organized as a consciousness in evolution. And to be able to see it as clearly as this, to understand it, is really to recognize something about the benefits of what your serendipity has been in terms of your relationship with this knowledge. You're part of a generation of this, here to be able to provide the way for the future for so many who will not be equipped. And as we well know, to be equipped for this future is not a big deal. It isn’t. But it is special to have that good fortune, to have the discipline to follow through an experiment and to truly live according to your Authority. It doesn't matter then where you are, not at all.”

Human Design is here in the world because change is in play. It gives us a way to see the transformation that’s possible for any human being implementing this knowledge. It's not just about the possibility of being able to decondition or being able to operate correctly.
This knowledge is to protect our future, and especially protect the unborn as we enter into what is an entirely different age. Human Design’s true mechanical purpose provides us with guidelines to keep us healthy and correct, regardless of the tumultuous times we are encountering today, and will encounter tomorrow.
Through this video Ra explains the changes we’re experiencing, and tells us how best to cope with and prepare for them.
Ra was born Alan (Robert) Krakower in Montreal, Canada on April 9, 1948, and spent his early years there. After he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree, his career path led him into the business world as an advertising executive, magazine publisher, and media producer. The arts were important to Ra, and he expressed himself as a composer and performer throughout his life. In 1983, he left Canada to travel, eventually finding his way to the island of Ibiza, where he spent years working as a school teacher.
In January 1987, he had an unusual mystical experience followed by an encounter with “a Voice,” an intelligence far superior to anything he had ever experienced. This encounter lasted for eight days and nights during which he received a transmission of information—what is known today as the “Human Design System.”
Ra dedicated the next 25 years of his life to the development and teaching of the System around the world. Together with his family, he lived in the United States, Germany, and for most of the time on Ibiza, Spain where he passed away in March, 2011.
