The 35th Gate, Key, and Hexagram illuminates the process of transcending our limitations and embracing the potential for miraculous transformations in our lives. This journey is marked by a shift from a sense of lack or hunger to the exhilaration of adventure, leading to the ultimate realization of boundlessness.


Defined in Chart: Individuals with Gate 35 defined in their charts are naturally inclined towards seeking new experiences and are comfortable with change. They possess a deep-seated need for progress, often driven by an internal hunger for something more.

Sun Transit: When the sun transits through Gate 35, it amplifies the collective desire for advancement and the willingness to embrace change. It's a period that encourages exploration and the pursuit of new opportunities for growth.

  The high-frequency expression is seeking adventure and emotional experiences through following one's curiosity, and evolving through the process. This energy is open, courageous, and excitedly awaits life's lessons to reveal themself through this process.

The low-frequency expression is becoming a bottomless pit for adventure and emotional experiences, and seeking them out to a point of detriment, possibly leading to abuse of drugs and alcohol. This energy is impatient, closed down, and struggles to learn from life's experiences.

My personal experience:

I have my conscious chiron in this energy, representing a 'wound' my soul came to grow through. I resonate with the seeking of adventure and emotional experiences, as well as the lower-frequency expression of becoming closed down as a result of the experiences... these last two years, following the Saturn-Pluto conjunction on my sun, I have been integrating the lessons. 

Human Design Gate 35: Progress and Gate of Change


Quarter of Civilization, the Realm of Dubhe
Theme: Purpose fulfilled through Form
Mystical Theme: Womb to Room
Gate 16 < Gate 35 > Gate 45


This Gate is part of the Channel of Transitoriness, A Design of a 'Jack of All Trades', linking the Throat Center (Gate 35) to the Solar Plexus Center (Gate 36). Gate 35 is part of the Collective Sensing (Abstract) Circuit with the keynote of sharing.

Gate 35 is driven by a restless curiosity and high expectations to explore new horizons for the sheer exhilaration of doing it, but not alone. Gate 35's voice says, "I feel," and what it usually feels is a desire for change. This is the voice of impersonal, relational experience. We are prodded along not by awareness, but by a hunger for depth of feeling that is conditioned by the emotional wave. Like hunger, desire and curiosity can only be temporarily ameliorated. We are focused on collecting experiences to learn from them, rather than on repeating experiences to master them. Mastery is expressed as wisdom and manifests as advice.

Our memories may provide more satisfaction than the experience itself. Our taste for new experience, and the need to see what or who is on the other side of the mountain, can keep us healthy and alert. When correctly entering into experience for its own sake, and remaining an objective observer, our clear sharing carries the potential to transform humanity. Experience seekers don't often take time to consider the repercussions of their actions, and without Gate 36, we are prone to seeking an emotional rush in the hope of escaping the pain of boredom when there is no new experience to dive into.

Gene Key 35: Wormholes and Miracles

The Journey from Longing to Liberation


“This Gene Key has driven us with its Hunger. Our deepest Hunger is to fly once again, to sail up into the sky and become one with the Divine, to be a bird in the skies of existence…” – Richard Rudd, 64 Ways


Gene Key 35, known as "Wormholes and Miracles," presents a transformative path from the Shadow of Hunger—a deep, unfulfilled longing for more—to the Siddhi of Boundlessness, where one experiences the limitless nature of existence. At the heart of this journey is the Gift of Adventure, the catalyst that propels us from a state of dissatisfaction to the realization of our infinite potential.

Shadow - Hunger:

  • The Shadow of Hunger manifests as an insatiable craving for something beyond our current experience. This deep yearning often reflects a disconnection from the present moment and a search for fulfillment in external achievements, possessions, or relationships. Yet, this hunger can never be fully satisfied by the material world alone.
  • Personal Application: Recognize areas in your life where the shadow of hunger is most prevalent. Is it in your career, relationships, or personal development? Acknowledge this hunger not as a void to be filled with externalities but as a signpost pointing towards a deeper exploration of your true desires and potential. It's an invitation to embark on an inner journey of discovery.

Gift - Adventure:

  • The Gift of Adventure emerges when we shift our perspective from seeking fulfillment outside ourselves to exploring the vastness within. Adventure, in this context, is the willingness to embrace the unknown, to take risks, and to see life as a series of opportunities for growth and exploration. It's about finding joy in the journey, rather than being fixated on the destination.
  • Personal Application: Cultivate the gift of adventure by stepping out of your comfort zone and embracing new experiences with an open heart. Whether it's traveling to unknown places, learning new skills, or exploring inward through meditation and self-reflection, see each moment as an adventure—a chance to discover more about yourself and the world around you.

Siddhi - Boundlessness:

  • The Siddhi of Boundlessness is the ultimate realization that arises from the journey through hunger and adventure. It's the recognition that our true nature is infinite and interconnected with all of existence. In this state of consciousness, the limitations of the ego dissolve, and we experience life from a place of wonder, awe, and a deep sense of unity with the cosmos.
  • Personal Application: Explore practices that expand your sense of self and connect you with the boundless nature of reality, such as meditation, spending time in nature, or engaging in creative expression without boundaries. As you open yourself to experiences of boundlessness, allow the sense of separation to fade, embracing the understanding that you are a vital, interconnected part of the whole.


Gene Key 35, "Wormholes and Miracles," invites us on a profound journey from the dissatisfaction of unmet desires to the exhilarating discovery of life's boundless possibilities. By embracing the gift of adventure, we learn to navigate the wormholes of our existence, finding miracles in every moment and ultimately realizing our infinite nature. This journey transforms hunger into fulfillment, not by seeking more, but by recognizing that we are already everything we aspire to be and more.  


I Ching Hexagram 35: Progress

Advancing towards the Light


A foundation without prejudice
is the first step in how the weak progresses.

To regard all things as one,
is to be a companion of Nature. -Chuang Tzu


In the I Ching, Hexagram 35, known as "Jin" or "Progress," symbolizes the phase of advancement and the illumination that comes with growth and forward movement. This hexagram represents the natural progression towards greater clarity, understanding, and success, emphasizing the importance of embracing change with optimism and confidence.

1. Embracing Change for Growth:

  • Hexagram 35 encourages an open-hearted approach to change, viewing each new challenge as an opportunity for development and each achievement as a step towards greater illumination. It underscores the principle that true progress is made by maintaining a positive outlook and a readiness to adapt to the evolving circumstances of life.
  • Personal Application: Identify areas in your life where progress is calling. Consider how you can actively embrace change, using it as a catalyst for growth. Stay open to new possibilities and maintain a positive attitude, even in the face of obstacles, trusting that each step forward is part of your broader journey towards fulfillment.

2. The Importance of Brightness and Clarity:

  • This hexagram highlights the significance of clarity and brightness in achieving progress. It suggests that success comes from shining your light brightly, with clear intentions and a pure heart, illuminating the path for yourself and others.
  • Personal Application: Cultivate clarity in your intentions and actions. Let your inner light guide you, and share that light with others. By being a source of positivity and clarity, you contribute to a collective advancement towards a brighter future.

3. Leadership and Inspiration:

  • Hexagram 35 also speaks to the role of leadership in guiding progress. It indicates that those in positions of influence have the power to inspire and motivate others by setting an example of optimism, resilience, and clear vision.
  • Personal Application: If you hold a leadership role, be conscious of the example you set. Use your position to inspire progress by leading with integrity, clarity, and a forward-looking perspective. Encourage those around you to embrace their own paths of growth with confidence and hope.


Hexagram 35 from the I Ching, "Progress," serves as a powerful reminder of the transformative potential of embracing change with optimism and clarity. It calls us to advance confidently towards the light of understanding and success, using our brightness to illuminate the way forward, both for ourselves and for those we influence along the way.

Gate 35, Key 35, and Hexagram 35 collectively guide us on a transformative journey from feeling an inner void to discovering the exhilaration of adventure and the liberation of boundlessness.
