Each profile has an energetic theme and quality. The idea that Human Design comes back to over and over again is that we are all unique individuals who need each other and play a specific role. The house analogy is a perfect example to see how our energies move and work together.
We’re all a combination of 2 profile lines.
Based on the earlier example the 4/6 energies will express themselves through the themes of the Opportunist + Role Model.
Your profile is based on the combination lines of your Unconscious/Body Sun + Earth and Conscious/Personality Sun + Earth. In this example the profile is 4/6 (4 Conscious/6 unconscious)
One more thing
Remember, your profile is just a fraction of your design. You are a unique combination of so many other moving parts. Your definition, profile, channels, gate, conditioning etc.
All this information is pretty high level but a good starting point to get you familiarize with the HD system.
We all get to experience all the energies in our bodygraph, knowing more about your design helps you understand the consistent energies within you at all times. From how you show up and influence others.
You can be whoever you want to be. Human Design simply gives you a little insight on how your energies can support you and what tools can help you get there.
