Reading some of the questions from some people that are new, I realize and see, that there is not a description anywhere about the Lunar Cycle that makes any sense. Reflectors are told to follow the moon, look at the moon, this and that, but not much is said about what that means.
Now many have found, that the Lunar Cycle is not something to do with our minds, it is something that reveals itself through the application of it, but even that is not really described anywhere. Now I see it, but I might not be the one to fix it.
In the meantime, Dharmen and Leela sometimes offer their Online Class: Embracing The Path of the Moon, A Journey of Discovery through the Lunar Cycle which is a 5 week course and highly recommended.
And I provide an individual personalised and extended Lunar Cycle & other Transits Chart with a brief explanation here:
Any Reflector Professional can fill you in, but for now, there is no easy online resource to simply read up on it, which I ponder might also be a ‘good thing’. However, if you have noticed something odd with the Lunar Cycle as presented in ‘The Definitive Book of Human Design’ I have made a corrected version attached here (16 gates missing, 4 double mentions and then 6 repeated, and not starting in Design Moon (but in Design North Node) and there is more off about it than just the sequence since no one ever changes Type, but for now):
Moon Blog 6.1
Gate 6 of friction, conflict.
The fundamental design component of progress. The law that growth cannot exist without friction.
Gate 6 Line 1 retreat.
The realization that wasting one’s resources against overwhelming odds is not courage but folly.
Exalted: The power of regeneration that can embrace retreat as a phase and not a failure. The emotional stability to accept conflict.
Detriment: The inferiority complex, where retreat is experienced as personal weakness. Emotional instability in times of conflict.
