I Ching: After Completion (Chi Chi)

Dates of solar transit (can vary by 1 to 2 days): February 28 - March 5

The 63rd Gate, Key, and Hexagram represent the journey from questioning and skepticism to profound understanding and realization of truth.


Defined in Chart: Those with Gate 63 defined in their charts may possess a natural inclination towards skepticism and critical thinking. They often question and analyze, seeking deeper understanding and clarity in various aspects of life.

Sun Transit: When the sun transits through Gate 63, it brings a collective focus on questioning and skepticism. It's a time to engage in deep inquiry, challenging existing beliefs and perceptions in the pursuit of truth.

The high-frequency expression is the energy for working through doubt and skepticism by finding and making sense of new patterns, and asking powerful question to oneself and others. strong family and tribal bonds through healthy communication and boundaries.This energy treats everyone with respect and as a valuable member of the tribe.

The low-frequency expression is the energy for struggling with doubt and planting doubt in others, leading to a failure of finding truth and taking action.


My personal experience:

I do not have this energy defined in my chart but have an understanding of its mechanism as it resides next to my sun in gate 61, which is sandwiched in between it and its grounding energy of 64.

61 is about connecting the dots... but never forcing them to connect. An endless journey of trust, then trusting more, then trusting even harder. I imagine 63 operates similarly. 

Human Design Gate 63: Navigating the Realm of Doubt Towards the Illumination of Truth

From the Shadow of Doubt to the Siddhi of Truth


Quarter of Initiation, the Realm of Alcyone
Theme: Purpose fulfilled through Mind
Mystical Theme: The Witness Returns
Gate 37 < Gate 63 > Gate 22


This Gate is part of the Channel Logic, A Design of Mental Ease Mixed with Doubt, linking the Head Center (Gate 63) with the Ajna Center (Gate 4). Gate 63 is part of the Collective Understanding (Logic) Circuit with the keynote of sharing.

The suspicion or doubt of Gate 63 is merely a pressure; it is the readiness to pay attention to and question what feels insecure until it can be understood and evaluated in terms of our future security. Doubt arises when we sense an inconsistency or weakness in the existing patterns moving life forward. This is an essential ingredient in the understanding/logic process, and logic is the common thread that flows through and connects all life forms on the planet. The doubt of Gate 63 can be directed out into the world, or focused inward, inappropriately, on our lives and choices. Our doubt becomes an urgency to formulate a question that addresses something that isn't clear to us. If we don't get an adequate, logical and workable answer to our question, pressure in the form of suspicion continues to build. Our focus on the future, with an ability to see patterns that exist in the present, means that if something appears weak and does not stand up under the scrutiny of our logic, or if it does not insure society's future, we will reject it for another pattern. When we are part of a group engaged in long-term planning, our aura will contribute this pressurized fuel for formulating an answer to the brainstorming process of projecting possibilities into the future. Without Gate 4, mental anxiety can arise as our need to have an answer to life's pressing questions.

Gene Key 63: The Journey from Doubt to Truth through Inquiry

Unveiling the Depths of Understanding


“The 63rd Siddhi exists already. It has existed forever. We already know and are Truth. After Completion, the Truth will stand revealed for us all to see. This is the only Truth there is. At the same time we’re moving through a hall of mirrors as we witness the unravelling of Truth.”

– Richard Rudd, 64 Ways


Gene Key 63, known as Reaching the Source, encapsulates the transformative journey from the Shadow of Doubt to the Siddhi of Truth, mediated by the Gift of Inquiry. This pathway explores the power of questioning as a means to deeper understanding and the eventual realization of absolute truth.

Shadow - Doubt:

  • The Shadow of Doubt in Gene Key 63 represents a state of skepticism, uncertainty, or cynicism. It manifests as a questioning mind that can lead to indecision, confusion, or a lack of faith in oneself or the world. This shadow can keep one in a perpetual state of questioning without finding satisfying answers.
  • Personal Application: Acknowledge and confront the presence of doubt in your thoughts and beliefs. Understand that while doubt can lead to indecision, it can also be a catalyst for deeper exploration and understanding. Use doubt not as a hindrance but as a starting point for your quest for deeper knowledge and clarity.

Gift - Inquiry:

  • The Gift of Inquiry is about embracing a curious and open-minded approach. It involves using questioning not as a tool of skepticism but as a means of exploration and discovery. Inquiry here means a proactive and constructive approach to understanding, where questions lead to growth and expansion of knowledge.
  • Personal Application: Cultivate the gift of inquiry by adopting a mindset of curiosity and openness. Let your questions guide you to greater insights and understanding. Embrace the process of learning as an ongoing journey, where each inquiry brings you closer to deeper truths.

Siddhi - Truth:

  • The Siddhi of Truth represents a state of profound realization and clarity. It is the ultimate understanding that emerges when one transcends the need for questions, arriving at a place of undeniable and absolute truth. In this state, the mind's doubts dissolve, revealing a fundamental and all-encompassing reality.
  • Personal Application: Aspire to a level of consciousness where you transcend the limitations of doubt and inquiry, entering a state of absolute truth. Embrace the understanding that truth is not just an intellectual concept but a lived experience, a deep knowing that resonates with every aspect of your being.


Gene Key 63 invites us on a profound journey from the shadows of doubt and uncertainty, through the empowering process of inquiry, to the realization of ultimate truth. This path encourages us to transform our skepticism into a tool for growth and discovery, leading us to the profound realization of the truths that underlie our existence.



I Ching Hexagram 63: Navigating Achievements and Transitions

Ji Ji (After Completion)


In the contrast of the family,
life reveals your deeper color.

To put the family in order, we must cultivate our personal life;
and to cultivate our personal life, we must first set our hearts right. –Kung fu tzu


In the I Ching, Hexagram 63, often translated as "After Completion" or "Ji Ji," symbolizes the achievement of a significant goal or the completion of an important phase. It represents a moment of accomplishment, yet it also advises caution and vigilance as new challenges may arise.

1. Maintaining Success Post-Completion:

  • This hexagram emphasizes the importance of care and attention even after achieving success. It suggests that the completion of one phase is often the beginning of another and that ongoing vigilance is necessary to maintain and build upon what has been achieved.
  • Personal Application: Reflect on your recent accomplishments and consider how you can sustain and build upon them. Stay alert to potential challenges that might arise and plan how you can address them effectively. Keep a proactive mindset even in times of success.

2. The Transition to New Beginnings:

  • Hexagram 63 also speaks to the transition from completion to new beginnings. It advises carefully planning the next steps and being prepared for the change that follows success.
  • Personal Application: As you complete a significant phase or project, consider what lies ahead. Approach new beginnings with thoughtful planning and a clear understanding of your goals and strategies. Use the momentum of your achievements as a foundation for future endeavors.

3. Balance and Order in Ongoing Processes:

  • The hexagram underscores the need for balance and order in maintaining the achievements gained. It suggests that success is a continuous process requiring constant attention and adjustment.
  • Personal Application: Strive for balance and harmony in your life, especially after achieving important goals. Continuously assess and adjust your plans and actions to ensure ongoing stability and growth. Remember that success is a dynamic process, not a static state.


Hexagram 63 from the I Ching teaches the art of maintaining success and gracefully transitioning into new phases of life. It reminds us that completion is not an end but a doorway to new beginnings, requiring foresight, planning, and a balanced approach.



Integrating and Utilizing this Energy

  • Fostering Critical Thinking: Use your questioning nature to foster critical thinking. Approach life with a healthy skepticism that encourages deeper exploration and understanding.
  • Pursuing Knowledge: Let your quest for truth guide your journey. Embrace inquiry as a means to expand your knowledge and insights, leading to greater wisdom and clarity.
  • Balancing Skepticism with Openness: While skepticism can be a valuable tool, balance it with openness to new ideas and perspectives. Recognize that the pursuit of truth is an ongoing journey that requires adaptability and willingness to learn.


Gate 63, Key 63, and Hexagram 63 collectively teach us about the transformative power of doubt and inquiry, the journey from questioning to understanding, and the realization of fundamental truths. By understanding and applying these principles, we can harness our skepticism constructively, leading us to deeper insights and a clearer understanding of our world and ourselves.
