The Channel 59/6 in the Human Design System: Striking a Balance between Intimacy and Assertiveness

The Human Design System, a multifaceted approach to unraveling human nature, has gained popularity in recent years. This method combines elements from astrology, the I-Ching, Kabbalah, chakras, quantum physics, genetics, and biochemistry. In other words, the Human Design System is a modern interpretation of ancient wisdom, fused with scientific principles. It provides a map of your unique design and shows how you can best live in harmony with yourself and the world around you. A central feature of this system is the channels, which represent specific energy pathways within our design. The Channel 59/6, the focus of today, is an especially captivating aspect of this system. It embodies the dynamic interplay of intimacy and assertiveness. So, let’s dive in!

(And here’s an overview of ALL Channels!)

The Construction of the Channel

The Channel 59/6 draws a connection line between the Sacral Center and the Emotional Center, and this channel has two crucial gates:

  • Gate 59 – The Gate of Sexuality: This gate symbolizes the desire and ability to break down barriers between people. It’s not just about romantic or sexual intimacy, but also about deep understanding and connection with others, as well as emotional, communal, and interpersonal intimacy. It’s all about closeness, connection, and bridging distances between people.
  • Gate 6 – The Gate of Conflict and Friction: Here, it’s about clarity and conflict. This gate allows us to grow through friction, set boundaries, and generate communal and emotional awareness and wisdom. BUT ONLY if we are correct and live according to Strategy and Authority. Otherwise, it’s just a contentious issue that picks fights with everyone to no avail, leading to neither growth nor awareness.

The Channel 59/6 in Action

Key Characteristics of 59/6:

  • Capable of forming deep bonds, but also setting clear boundaries.
  • Strives for emotional closeness, and to maintain this closeness, there’s a need for occasional friction and constructive arguments or constructive engagement, so that the relationship can also be fertile on an emotional and potentially reproductive level ;).
  • Has the potential for deep emotional awareness and wisdom. BUT ONLY if we are correct and live according to Strategy and Authority. Otherwise, it’s just a contentious issue that picks fights with everyone to no avail, leading to neither growth nor awareness.
  • In the shadow, this channel can be very promiscuous. When not lived according to Strategy and Authority, this channel is either engaging in meaningless and dull promiscuity, never experiencing true closeness, OR people have a highly dysfunctional sexuality, OR they engage in the wrong kind of sex, or even no sex at all. As always, and this applies to ALL of our channels and gates, the optimal functionality of this channel depends on us adhering to our Strategy and Authority, and also fine-tuning our 4 Transformation Steps 🙂

How to Utilize the Channel 59/6 to Your Advantage?

If you have the Channel 59/6 in your chart, congratulations! You are blessed with a unique ability to establish intimate relationships and to further develop yourself individually and within a relationship through friction, but only if you follow your Strategy and Authority. I know, I know, I keep saying this over and over, but that’s the essence of it 😉

Tips for the 59/6:

  • Appreciate Intimacy: Use your ability to connect deeply with others. It’s a valuable gift, but don’t force intimacy. Allow your Strategy and Authority to draw the right closeness into your life.
  • Protect Your Space: Recognize when it’s time to set boundaries. Not everyone deserves access to your innermost core.
  • Find Balance: As with everything in life, balance is key. Intimacy and friction/argument are not opposites, but complement each other wonderfully. People who are able to argue and engage in friction correctly and productively deepen their intimacy, and it doesn’t grow stale like an old sock 😉

Intimacy in the Channel 59/6

In the context of Channel 59/6, intimacy means much more than just physical closeness. It’s about sharing feelings, thoughts, dreams, and fears. People with the Channel 59/6 often have a deep need for these kinds of connections. They long to be truly seen, heard, and understood, and to delve into the emotional and sexual realms, especially in romantic relationships.

Of course, this also brings challenges. Too much openness can lead to vulnerabilities, and this is where Gate 6 comes into play.


The Channel 59/6 in the Human Design System is a fascinating and complex energy connection that addresses the human need for intimacy and the equally important need to engage in friction and conflict for the purpose of personal growth and to generate more intimacy. It’s a constant balancing act, but with awareness and self-care, it’s possible to live in harmony with these two forces. It’s about recognizing and accepting oneself, and living in a way that honors both connection and individual space and growth. And as you already know from me, the key to this is following your Strategy and Authority.
