Understanding Asteroids In Your Human Design


Your Personal Story Is Coded Into Your Design

Even if you’ve done A LOT of work on yourself, and if you’re reading this I’m sure you have, you are still walking around with a whole matrix of unexamined cultural beliefs. We have picked them up from our family, from our culture. We don’t see them because they are hidden in plain sight, disguised as ‘how things are’, or ‘that’s just the reality’.

These beliefs are not just the result of random experiences. They are deeply coded in your DNA. Stories about not being seen, always having to sacrifice yourself, the trials and tribulations of love. Stories about luck, success, failure. Stories about destiny and creativity and good friends. And the good news? We can uncover your own personal stories by exploring the Asteroids in your Human Design.


A More Personal Version of Your Human Design

I used to find Human Design a bit cold, a bit impersonal. That was before I discovered how to explore the Asteroids in my design. Suddenly the stories of Persephone, Psyche, Juno and many many others brought my design to life. I was able to find MY stories, where the mythology of the Asteroids was playing out in My life.

Asteroids bring a more subtle, personal and expanded way to understand your design. There are literally tens of thousands of Asteroids, but there will be a handful that speak loudly and persistently in your own life experience. Their stories aren’t static. Rather, they reveal your personal journey to recovery of your original self.

NB. This PlayGroup is for women only, because we will be specifically exploring the role of these archetypes in women’s lives.

Asteroids Hold The Seed for The Next Big Step in Our Evolution


220px-Opened_up_a_Pandora's_boxBut there is a bigger story, a more important reason for discovering the Asteroids in your Human Design.  Most of the asteroids are feminine archetypes. It is here that we can find the stories of women over the ages, how they have been disempowered, and the way home to ourselves. As Feminine Consciousness returns to take her place in partnership with the Masculine, the Asteroids hold important keys to the recovery of our original selves.

The Hidden Feminine Codes of Consciousness 

The Asteroids support an alignment with current evolutionary shifts in consciousness, much more than if we remain limited to the standard 13 activations in the chart.

Most of the activations in your standard chart are masculine archetypes – Mars, Saturn, Jupiter …  There are only 2 feminine archetypes – Venus and the Moon. That’s because it is a convention that planets get masculine names. And so what gets the feminine names?  The Asteroids!  It is here that we find a wealth of feminine consciousness – Psyche, Pandora, Persephone, Juno, Pallas Athene, Ceres .. the list goes on and on.

And each one of these archetypes has a home in your Human Design chart. The Asteroids are literally the link to your feminine DNA. They are the hidden Feminine Codes of Consciousness.


About Kim

I am founder of Love Your Design and Divine Design, creator of Emergent Human Design. I have been researching and working with the asteroids in Human Design since 2007.

In this PlayGroup I will share with you the results of all my work over the years, including how to choose the most important asteroids in your design and what they mean.

The Asteroids bring powerful personal information to our understanding of our design. But even more than that, they represent a point of evolution of the feminine consciousness at this time.

We are in the midst of a profound cultural evolution where women are stepping up more and more into leadership roles. We need to get our big girl pants on, find and begin to live our big purpose.

The Asteroids show clearly where we may be still buying into old disempowered stories and how we can step past them and into a future of contentment, success and freedom.

What Is A PlayGroup? 

The Asteroids PlayGroup is for those of you who want to understand your underlying personal mythology through the lens of Human Design.

I design the PlayGroups for those of you with a passion for diving more deeply into self awareness. Are you ready to expand your understanding of your Design? Do you want to join a group of women passionate about recovering their powerful original feminine self?

This PlayGroup runs for 8 weeks. It includes:

  • Live weekly online video classes 

Eight live classes including a themed discussion and exploration of each week’s Asteroids. There will be time each week for questions about how the Asteroids play out in your personal Design.  The classes are recorded and you will have access to download and keep each one.

  • 7 Days free membership to Divine Design

On the new Divine Design membership site you can create charts anytime you like on any device – your computer, your tablet or phone, find your HD Subtle Layers, discover your Asteroids, share in the forum and attend Emergent HD PlayGroups. When you register for this PlayGroup you get a free trial membership for the entire 8 week period.

  • An introduction to Human Design art journalling 

Carolyn Jayne will be offering you the opportunity to use your creativity to embody the archetypal energies, not just understand them on a mental level.

  • Members only Discussion Forum

This is a moderated forum where Carolyn Jayne and Kim Gould will answer any questions you have during the week between classes. You’ll also get to share your experience with other PlayGroup members.

  • Access to the Divine Design Asteroid Wiki

Kim is starting a peer to peer Wiki (like Wikipedia) on the Asteroids in Human Design. As a member of this PlayGroup you get access to the wiki and the opportunity to add your experience and learning to this valuable project.

  • Bonus video and ebook 

Each PlayGroup member will receive a Welcome Package that includes

  • a 90 minute video An Introduction To Using Asteroids In Human Design,
  • an Ebook on how to work out which are the most important Asteroids in your personal Design,
  • a video where Carolyn and Kim talk about the importance of Asteroids in your Design and
  • an mp3 audio Asteroids in HD – The Big Picture.


I look forward to each class. I have taken courses with other Human Design teachers, but was frustrated that they stayed on the surface of things. Kim is not afraid to teach from the deep end of the pool! Though she explains concepts in a simple understandable way, there is a LOT of information in each class that I will be able to keep working with (“playing!”) for a long time to come. Kim takes her students very personally into the depths of HD and invites exploration into their own design.

Discovering Asteroids In Human Design 

Many people are interested to know what’s beyond the standard Human Design chart.  We know how precise Human Design can be.  Asteroids add even more precision.  They are an astonishing tool for understanding the underlying stories of our lives.

People are often amazed at how closely their lives have followed the mythical versions of the main asteroids in their design.  Someone who has the divine consort Juno in the same Gate as her Sun is going to experience life very differently from someone with a strong Vesta activation because Vesta is much more interested in career than marriage.


Beyond Your Standard Chart

When you are beginning to learn about the Human Design System, it’s important to know your Type and to experiment with your personal Strategy and Authority.  In fact, this information is life changing!

However, once we understand these basic concepts, there comes a time when we seek to move into a deeper experiment.

That’s where the Asteroids can bring a whole new take on Human Design. They give us cutting edge techniques to access layers of consciousness hidden beneath the standard chart.

For example, if you have a split definition with one significant bridge gate, conventional Human Design teaches that any attempt by you to use the energy of that bridge gate is the ‘not-self’. However, I often find people have significant Asteroids in their bridge gates.

It may be Vesta – indicating a strong and passionate focus for your career, or it may be Psyche – a finely attuned sense of how to connect with others. These minor planets are subtle energies, but profoundly influential subconscious influences in your life. You don’t want to be confusing these beautiful and powerful energies as your ‘not self’, that is so disempowering.

Asteroids can activate gates in your design that evoke a whole new experimentation with Awareness.  If you have Ceres in a gate that activates your undefined Solar Plexus Centre, for example, it’s very powerful to observe how that newly created channel affects your emotions.

When you feel that you understand your basic Type, Strategy and Awareness, learning more about these concepts deepens your experiment with Human Design, and your experience of who you are and what you are capable of creating.


I love how organically things tend to evolve as we learn, the flexible space Kim holds that allows for open feedback, even mid-session. It makes things more approachable and strips away the fear of “is this worth saying/maybe I shouldn’t say it, I might get something wrong” that I find is a big barrier to learning, especially in this format. So thank you for that!

What You Will Learn


  • What is an Asteroid?
  • How do I find the Asteroids in my Human Design?
  • Which Asteroids are most important for me personally?
  • How do I make sense of what the Asteroids mean in my chart?
  • How do I work with Asteroids in my Design to improve my relationships, better define my purpose and become more aware?


You do not have to be experienced in Human Design to do this PlayGroup. I often get beginners in these groups.  You should have some knowledge of the basics of Human Design, and you will learn A LOT by interacting with other participants in the discussion forum. If you are very new to HD, I suggest you book a personal session with Kim prior to commencing the PlayGroup.


When Is It On? 

All the PlayGroups are online, so you can attend from anywhere in the world. Weekly classes are recorded so if you miss one you can always watch it back when it’s more convenient for you.

There are 8 weekly classes on:

USA Wednesdays at Eastern 7pm, Pacific 4pm – commencing on 23th September 2015

Australia: Thursday at AEST 9am – commencing on 24th September 2015 

NB. The time in Australia will change to 10am from 4 October and 11am from 1 November to take account of Daylight Savings shifts. I will stay with the US times, so if you are in another country be aware that your class times will change during the 8 week period.
