Human Design is a system of personality analysis that combines principles from astrology, the I Ching, the Kabbalah, and the chakra system. It was developed in the late 20th century by Robert Allan Krakower, who later changed his name to Ra Uru Hu.
The basic idea behind Human Design is that each person has a unique energetic blueprint or "design" that determines their personality traits, strengths, and weaknesses. This design is based on the time, date, and location of a person's birth, and is represented by a chart that includes symbols and numbers.
The chart includes nine centers, each of which corresponds to a different aspect of a person's life, such as relationships, communication, or creativity. Each center can be open or closed, which indicates whether a person is naturally inclined to express that aspect of themselves or not.
Human Design also includes a system of decision-making called "strategy and authority." This involves using one's unique design to make decisions based on one's inner guidance rather than external influences.
Human Design has gained a following in recent years, with practitioners and enthusiasts using it as a tool for personal growth, self-discovery, and spiritual development. However, it is important to note that Human Design is not a scientifically validated system, and its claims have been met with criticism and skepticism by some.
