Throat center in Human Design

What is Human Design?

Human Design is a system that shows the unique energetic blueprint you were born with. 


It is a synthesis of science and esoteric traditions. It is synthesized from the chakra system, astrology, I’Ching, and Kabbalah, combined with genetic coding and astrophysics knowledge. 


A specialized software prepares your Human Design Life Chart (also known as BodyGraph) based on your date of birth (time, day, month, year, place).


From your Human Design Chart, you will find out what kind of person you were born to be. The Chart shows your unique potential, free from any conditioning. 


The Human Design Chart has several elements. One of them is nine energy centers that are energy hubs in the body and represent different aspects. 


In this post, I will tell you about the Throat center.


Throat center’s functions

The throat is the center of expression and manifestation.


It is the third center from the top on your Human Design map, located below the Mind center.


This center is primarily responsible for:

  • communication and
  • manifestation


Manifestation may take the form of action, writing, or speech.


Biologically, the Throat center relates to metabolism, the thyroid, and the parathyroid glands.


What does it mean that your center is defined or undefined?

Your Human Design Chart shows you if a center is defined, undefined, or open.


You have constant access to the center’s functions if defined (on your HD Chart, it is marked in color). The energy of such a center flow from the inside to the environment. The movement of energy is from the inside to the outside.


Undefined or open center (on your HD Chart, it is white) takes information and energy from the outside to the inside. You are then more susceptible to environmental influences in terms of the functions of a given center. You may tend to accept information and the energy of others as yours.


Do you have a defined Throat center?

If your Throat center is defined, in particular:

  • you usually have no problem with being listened to
  • you speak with confidence; those around you may perceive your confidence as arrogance sometimes (especially if they have an undefined Throat)
  • what you specifically express through this center depends on its connection with the other centers, e.g., if your Throat has a defied connection with the Mind center, you tend to speak your mind; and if the defined connection is with the Emotions center, you will easily express your emotions
  • you catalyze speech in others, sometimes to such an extent that the only way to stop the flow of words of the other person is to make them aware of this.


Do you have an undefined or open Throat center?

If your Throat center is undefined or open, in particular:

  • you often feel that people don’t listen to you
  • you struggle with finding words to express yourself in the way you would like
  • you have a natural tendency to talk too much and quickly to be heard and noticed finally
  • saying that “silence is golden” should be your motto; it is essential that you learn to wait patiently for the right moment to speak up.
