What's Your Human Design Fixed Star? Here's mine
There are no rules about what the limitation is to be a nine-centered being. There is no such thing. There isn't. It’s a mutation. When we think about the program, one of the dilemmas of dealing with the program all the time, because we are in it and of it, is that we begin to give it qualities that in essence it does not deserve. It's a perfect mutation. You have the birth of a star and its system that has a deep connectivity to other stars, that has the perfect positioning in terms of frequency of its satellites, that because of its relationship to these other stars there is a streaming of neutrino information that is perfectly diversified by the construct of the solar system itself. And it’s not because it was planned. And it's not because anything at any level could ever have expected it. It's what makes it so special. It makes us so special, we who are nothing but stars, because that is what we are. We are stars." Ra Uru Hu
What's Your Human Design Fixed Star?
Today in Rave Psychology class my mind was blown away (as Human Design often has this effect on me). Basically, I got to see an easy way to assess the deeper layers of someone’s design through the Design and Personality Nodes and see if the spirit could be broken (mine could and did). I remember liking that feeling of being mind blown, and hopeful that I’d get clarity on how it could feel when I come to recognize what it all means in real life, through applying it in my Human Design teaching and consulting.
We as a Personality are connected to our Design through an interweaving of the energies between these nodes in our lives. I hope to create a post on documenting my homework keynoting of my Storyline (which is due next week, eek!)
As a nice coincidence, Facebook reminded me of a post I did a couple years ago about fixed stars, which comes from the Link Nodes, and I’d like to share it with you.
In spring of 2017 I took the Human Design System’s Rave Cosmology “Nature of the Stars” with Darshana Deborah Mathews at the International Human Design School Rave Cosmology Biversity. You can listen to Ra Uru Hu teach about the Fixed Stars on Jovian Archive here.
What are Fixed Stars?
“The fixed stars (Latin: stellae fixae) comprise the background of astronomical objects that appear to not move relative to each other in the night sky compared to the foreground of Solar System objects that do. Generally, the fixed stars are taken to include all stars other than the Sun. Nebulae and other deep-sky objects may also be counted among the fixed stars.
Exact delimitation of the term is complicated by the fact that no celestial objects are in fact fixed with respect to each other. Nonetheless, extrasolar objects move so slowly in the sky that the change in their relative positions is nearly imperceptible on typical human timescales, except to careful examination, and thus can be considered "fixed" for many purposes. Furthermore, distant stars and galaxies move even slower in the sky than comparatively closer ones.” Wikipedia
In Human Design, we are taught that 70% of the Neutrinos that imprint us at any one time is coming from our local star, the Sun. Because Jupiter is a failed star, it creates a smattering of Neutrinos - 3%. The remaining 27% comes from the stellar background field we live within.
We live in an illusion (Maia) that is built on labels (we pondered the details of this in today’s BG5 Live episode on Facebook). Our stars have stories, and each of us has our deep connection to this part of the spiritual and mystical lore that builds our reality. Neutrinos are a star product - Ra liked to call them the breath of stars. The neutrino ocean we live in is full of data streams that source from the heavens - this is the consciousness field. Awareness is what happens when we juxtapose the neutrino consciousness field with our own design, filtering it as Ra would say. We are programmed within a program looking at the program.
How do I find my fixed star in Human Design?
In Human Design this is related to your Design link node (your North Node or Future Direction).
1) Use Jovian Archive’s Maia Mechanics Imaging (there’s a free trial if you don’t have it yet) to find the exact position of your Design North Node. When your chart is open, look to the very far right under the info panel, towards the bottom right find the Design Data in the planetary panel. You're going to need to uncollapse the panels to see the data. Write down the calculations you find under your Design North Node.
2) Then google to find a "fixed stars" catalog like that one if this one I’m linking to doesn’t work.
3) Find the longitude and compare with the "fixed stars" catalog data. Now, find the nearest fixed star to the position of your Design North Node.
4) Then google the name of your fixed star, taking into account any other planetary activations that are conjunct and the descriptions written. You’ll see I quoted some information from what I found on mine below.
Here’s Ra Uru Hu on finding your Fixed Star:
”Okay, so you want to find your star. If you want to find your star the first thing that you have to do is that you've got to go to your design Link Node and you get the positioning of it exactly. Then as I said, just Google “fixed stars” and go find the star that you and a lot of others have. It’s such a different way of categorizing people. As a matter of fact, I think that it would be possible for us to create a kind of stellar catalog of—this goes back to Quarter by Quarter. Every single one of the quarters in the quarters all have a Godhead. They all have very deep associations; they all have chemical reference points.
There are all kinds of information that can be gleaned from this and to begin to see that we’re looking at a very, very vast influencing system in which there are literally for every nodal polarity you're going to have at either end instruments that are linking together generations. Not just the generational linkage, which is obvious in the way in which we understand Pluto and the outer planets, but a transgenerational linkage as well, because we are dealing with the Nodes. Every 18.6 years we’re going to have another generation that is going to have the potential of the design nodal 37.2, and we can end up with three or four of those generations alive at the same time. And all of them linked together through the same influence of one star.
It’s an interesting way of looking at how people are grouped instead of looking at them in terms of their Sun/Earth where so much of it is based. We are beginning to understand that we need to begin to look at the nodal configuration because the nodal configuration in and of itself gives us a whole new way in which we can look at the way in which beings are influenced.” Ra Uru Hu
Darshana and I found that my Fixed star is Alphecca (The Pearl) Alpha Coronae Borealis. It is a 2.2 magnitude star in the Northern Crown, the Corona Borealis Constellation, a brilliant white binary star located at the base of this Crown.
My Human Design Fixed Star
Corona Borealis Name and Meaning
Mythically, Corona Borealis represented the crown which was a present from Dionysus worn by Ariadne.
The Native Americans referred to the Corona Borealis as the “Camp Circle” – their celestial ancestors in the heavens.
In Celtic lore, it was known as Caer Arianrhod, or the “Castle of the Silver Circle”, home to the Lady Arianrhod.
Corona Borealis Constellation Astrology
“‘Constellation Corona Borealis the Northern Crown, is a northern constellation sitting above the head of the Serpent, constellation Serpens, between Bootes and Hercules. Corona Borealis spans 12 degrees of the Zodiac in the Sign Scorpio, and contains 2 named fixed stars.
CORONA BOREALIS. The Northern Crown.
Legend. Corona Borealis represents the garland given by Venus to Ariadne on the occasion of her marriage to Bacchus after she had been forsaken by Theseus.
Influence. According to Ptolemy it is like Venus and Mercury. It is said to give artistic ability, love of flowers, lassitude and disillusionment, but to bring its natives to a position of command. By the Kabalists it is associated with the Hebrew letter Daleth and the 4th Tarot Trump, “The Emperor”.  Fixed Stars and Constellations in Astrology, Vivian E. Robson, 1923, p.40.
The constellation is correlative with that which concerns the air and especially the weather and its effects on agriculture. It is generally a beneficial constellation. When in mutatine subsolar aspect the native will be fond of pleasure. When in matutine culmination, however, the native may prefer pleasure to the honors of life. If matutine setting, the constellation presages a propensity for pleasure that may even bring about disease, dishonor and imprisonment.  Fixed Stars and Judicial Astrology, George Noonan, 1990, p.10.
Corona Borealis, the Northern Crown … was the only stellar crown known to Eratosthenes and the early Greeks, but they called it Stephanos, a Wreath; and their successors, who had begun to locate the Southern Crown (Corona Australis), added to this title of the original the distinguishing protos; and beta Borelos to show its priority and its northern position. The Latins adopted the Greek name and adjectives in Corona borea, borealis, and septentrionalis; and further knew it as the Crown of Vulcan fashioned ex auro et indicis gemmis; or of Amphitrite, probably from its proximity in the sky to the Dolphin (Delphinus) associated with that goddess.” Astrology King
"Fixed star Alphecca is of the nature of Venus and Mercury. It gives honor, dignity and poetical and artistic ability.
Alphecca is one of the 15 Behenian Fixed Stars. Its image is a hen or crowned man. It gives chastity and the love and goodwill of men. Rules topaz, rosemary, trefoil and ivy. [Fixed Stars and Constellations in Astrology, Vivian E. Robson, 1923, p.131,232,242.]
Alphecca is noted for conveying honor, dignity and artistic ability. But like all Venusian stars it can also have its undesirable effects. Medieval astrologers, who tended to emphasize the more perverse side of astrology, asserted that Alphecca rising indicates a life spent in a variety of pleasurable pursuits by an individual who decked his body with adornments, secretly engaged in love affairs or adultery and who “bedded boys and girls” according to Firmicus Maternus. If the star is setting, disgrace will come of all this. [Fixed Stars and Judicial Astrology, George Noonan, 1990, p.10.]
These natives are an open channel to the spiritual plane continuously, and if they are unable to control it or use it incorrectly, they can find themselves confined to an institution. If these persons use drugs or heavy medications, insanity could be the result. This is the absolute highest spiritual vessel and it is totally spiritual. It can be used in a negative, or selfish way as they feel this spiritual power and use it for selfish reasons for the most part. Used in a positive way, they can simply walk around a group of people and tell each and every one exactly what they wish to know. They are extraordinarily psychic. [4. The Fixed Star Health and Behavior Imbalance, Ted George and Barbara Parker, 1985, p.92.]" Astrology King

”Choiceless, We Are”
Most beings really think that at some level we are in charge and we’re not. That at some level we’re responsible for the level of consciousness now, we’re not. That we are somehow responsible for cultures, we’re not. Choiceless we are. That sounded like Yoda. Choiceless we are that, yes. It's quite something. I find this positioning to be almost exhilarating, because it's really the key in understanding how something so basic in learning this knowledge, beginning to understand that it's a program, that you operate within a program, at every level you are controlled, at every level there are control mechanisms. And yet, not grasping that this vast cycle that we call a global cycle, this is the master control program. In fact, there are greater programs beyond it, but they're certainly not personalized to our solar system, this is the great control program for here. And it’s coming to an end. That's why Human Design is important, not about all the things about—yes things we can understand, there’s all that stuff. I won’t get into all that. What's important is the training. You’re equipped to live in a world now where there is no global planning as a background because you have a place where you can find your own authority. You have to understand that what we have is an era in which authority has been taken away and has been institutionalized. You all know that. All the authorities we deal with in the modern life have been institutionalized whether they are governments, the laws, the police, on and on and on, it has all been institutionalized, it's all maintained through institutions. All these institutions control life on the planet.” Ra Uru Hu
I remember being in Mount Shasta, California when I went through this Rave Cosmology course with Darshana. When she came to visit and stay with my daughter and I later that summer we all downloaded star apps and looked for our stars out under the bright galactic canopy at night. What I found utterly fascinating was of course looking up people’s fixed star (it was a bonus I did for my first Rave Cartography class I did online and in person in 2017), and the the rich history some of these stars have. Ra gave the mythology a mechanical basis in his teachings. If you look into it, I’d love to hear what you think about your fixed star! Personally, I really resonated with my star and it feels inspiring to be reminded on this eclipse day.
“Strategy and authority is one of those things, to align your Nodes, to align your life, to allow yourself to be a filter of the ocean, and yet at the same time to have the integrity of your own authority in all of that. I like it, these stars out there with their families, with their soldiers. I'm beginning to understand that everywhere we look, we’re controlled. It’s what I love about the knowledge. It's what it means for me. Human Design set me free. It’s set me free from authority. I was born a heretic. I was not born to bow down to anything. To be myself is to be free to be heretic, to live out the perfection of just what it is to be me and to only follow that, whatever that means, whatever the consequences. There’s nothing to do. I am not in charge.
It's only then do we begin to experience magic. I breathe it, in a sense. There is this passenger relaxation that I have that allows me to see so clearly that this process is something that is just so exquisite. Yeah, it’s all control, I know. But I don’t see the control mechanisms as the bad guys. I recognize that this is the way it works. And we get these little cracks, because they’re cracks, these cracks where you can just stick your head through and just peek and see, because there has to be that. There have to be those who are uncontrollable; otherwise, it wouldn’t work, and uncontrollable within the cosmic sense of the word. As a heretic I teach you, I encourage you to break the covenant with the program. This is my great work: break the covenant with program. Do not bow down; do not give authority to anything, to anyone, to any god….”
"Everything about what it is to be in the Maia, everything about life on this plane, the sum total of a life is made up by its decisions. It’s just about decisions. If you look at your life you’ll see very clearly that it’s basically decisions all along the road, wherever you turn. And yet, given the nature of being, given the fact that human beings are much more open than they are fixed, given that we are designed to interact with the conditioning field around us, and to be conditioned by those around us in order to be attracted to them, that it’s exceedingly difficult for us to even imagine what it’s like to make decisions as ourselves."
