Human Design Variables (Four Arrows) In Business

Wondering what the four arrows are in your human design chart and how they relate to the way you run your business? Are you designed to tap into a more structured and traditional masculine approach? Or are you designed to run your business by living and being in your feminine flow? Let’s take a peek shall we…

So these four arrows are known as the ‘Variables’ or ‘Four Transformations’ in the human design system. You can use Jenna Zoe’s free software to find yours (it has the arrows in it) however if you’re seeking more detailed information Genetic Matrix is my go-to paid software wise. This element is one of the more advanced areas of the system and one that I didn’t get around to truly contemplating and embodying until many years into my personal human design experiment.

The variables relate to our cognitive design and look at how we are designed to perceive and take in the world around us. You’ve probably heard when it comes to our brains we may be more dominant in one side, the left hemisphere or right hemisphere. It is said that right facing arrows point to being more “feminine” in energy; that is being more go with the flow and not being so rigid in our ways. And the left facing arrows point to being more “masculine” in energy; aka. More structured and precise. According to founder Ra, as a collective we’re moving into a cycle away from a heavy masculine focus and into a more “feminine” cycle in the 2027 global shift.

So what does this mean for business? I sense it means we’re moving away from the traditional corporate-esque models as a collective where rigid rules are on their way out and creativity and true innovation are on the way in. We’re making big waves already. More people working from home than ever before. More people demanding less structure and more balance. More business owners embracing their intuitive flow and creative way of perceiving the world than ever before.

Of course, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer though. Each and every one of us are designed differently. In fact there are 16 possible variations of variables. The below provides a short summary of the four arrows in your chart and what it could mean for you as a business owner. 

PS. I invite you to keep in mind, this is only one area of your chart and it’s important to holistically take your entire chart into account to ascertain the full scope of the feminine or masculine energetics of your design. As always, channel this information through your own internal guidance system and if you don’t resonate simply chuck it in the bin! Remember, no system should trump your own internal truth or intuition (including HD). But either way, something to contemplate in this cozy human design rabbit hole of ours 😉

Top Left Arrow: Digestion

The top left arrow is about your digestion. It’s how we take in information, learn and digest external stimuli. It can help us identify how we may go about structuring our day to day runnings in business and whether following strict routines or going with the flow honours us more.

LEFT FACING ARROW
This means your energetic blueprint is designed to actively digest information and the world around you. The way you digest is more masculine in energy and you may crave structure, routine and consistency as a person. This may look like using a calendar system (like Google Cal) to map out your day in order to be efficient and effective or using project planning tools (like Trello or Asana) to keep track of all the things you need to do in your business. Implementing batching and content creation systems to create and manage your marketing content in an effective manner may also help. Nothing wrong with being a control freak!

RIGHT FACING ARROW
This means you passively digest information and the world around you. The way you digest is more feminine in energy and spontaneous in nature. This means you don’t necessarily need strict routines or structure, and may prefer to go with the flow more often. This energy thrives on flexibility and versatility, so allowing yourself to be more intuitive in the way you run your business may honour you. This may look like having less structure in your day to day runnings of the business and allowing enough spaciousness to tap into your creative flow in business. If you feel bitter or frustrated by having such strict plans, then it’s a good sign to get a lil more flexible OR delegate the routine stuff you don’t want to do to someone else if you have the freedom to!

Bottom Left Arrow: Environment

The bottom left arrow is related to your environment. It represents how your energy is naturally designed to be part of your surroundings either physically or mentally. This can help us identify the best environments in which we’re designed to run our business or also be in mentally.

LEFT FACING ARROW
This means your energy is designed to be observed within the community. You may feel called to be part of a community or enjoy having a more structured environment. This may show up as feeling inspired to set up a sacred spot when running your business that feels stable and consistent. A place you can nest and spend time on your big projects. It doesn’t mean you can’t necessarily cafe hop or be a digital nomad working in a new place everyday, yet finding places that feel grounded and safe to work in may honour you more as you run your business.

RIGHT FACING ARROW
This means your energy is designed to be an observer within the community. You may feel called to running your business in a less structured, more fluid environment. So instead of nesting in one place to run your day to day business, you may feel more aligned with going out to work in different environments. Working in different cafes digital nomad-style observing and soaking up the different cultures. Switching it up between working from home, travelling whilst working. If you’re in a creative lull and finding it difficult to come up with creative content ideas or working on your next big project, it’s a great chance to get out of your usual environment and try immersing yourself in someplace new.

Top Right Arrow: Awareness

The top right arrow is related to your awareness. It represents how you like to recall information and filter knowledge.

LEFT FACING ARROW
This means your mental energy is designed to be more strategic than fluid. You may think quite logically in patterns and facts and may find it easier to remember a lot of small details. This may look like making the most of systems in business or making friends with spreadsheets or planning tools so there is less ambiguity in the overall runnings and more attention to detail!

RIGHT FACING ARROW
This means your mental energy is designed to be more receptive and creative than structured. You may be the type of person to naturally think outside of the box, be in touch with your imagination and see the finer nuance of things when running your business. It may honour you to have a less traditional approach and feel called to tap into your feminine energetics and intuition moreso when creating content or working on your next big project.

Bottom Right Arrow: Perspective

The bottom right arrow is about perspective and how you are designed to see the world. It can help us to identify how focussed or abstract we’re here to be when it comes to manifesting our intentions in business.

LEFT FACING ARROW
This means your energetic blueprint is designed to have a more focussed perspective, and according to Jenna Zoe be a ‘specific manifestor’. For you getting crystal clear on your business vision and getting specific about every little detail and every little nuance may better support your evolution. From the lense of more traditional business, this is where setting key performance indicators or specific objectives and plans can help to honour this focused lense of perceiving things and calling things into form.

RIGHT FACING ARROW
This means your energetic blueprint is designed to have a less focussed or peripheral perspective ( and according to Jenna Zoe be a ‘non-specific’ or abstract manifestor). Here you’ll still have a business vision but will opt for the birds eye view over getting into the nitty gritty details of things. So instead of attaching to strict numbers or rigid plans in business, one may feel more inclined to go with the flow and not be phased by the detours or little pivots that come up on the way to meeting your larger intentions.

The Variables are a fun part of the chart to play and experiment with in the realm of business! There’s truly no one-size-fits-all way to running your daily business, setting the vision or using your brain as the CEO. It takes wider consideration of your stage in business, size of business and desired lifestyle but hope this summary of the Variables gives you a starting point with your contemplation and experimentation 🙂
