I have only one clear thing to say to you: "Stick to your path. Follow your heart."
You are a rare individual, being the only fixed profile among the twelve.
This means you have one theme in life and an extremely precise and particular way of living -and it's all about a heart's desire guiding you toward your destiny.
This is because you have what is called a "fixed fate vibration": one path, one purpose, one perspective, meaning that your true nature must stick to a rigid course, as plotted by the Universe, without deviating and without exception.
In some ways, this is a loner's profile, mainly because your immovable
and inflexible nature makes you hard to understand.
Your foundations are built by one determining factor the fate you have been handed in life.
And whatever that might be, you'll throw your heart into pursuing it.
Just as there are sixty-four genetic codons to the human makeup, there are sixty-four gates in the Human Design system.
Your "fixed fate" is determined by just one of them.
This one aspect presets the tone and context of all your interactions.
You hold true to a particular and vital aspect of the human psyche and that's it.
For example, I knew a male pensioner with the4/1 profile. His one fixed fate from the sixty-four gates was Stimulation.
As such, stimulation became the fixed theme to his life.
He drove the most impressive car, owned properties around the world but was too busy to visit them, had endured several medical surgeries, had just been bankrupted after one business turned sour, and yet gambled and drank with the best of them, regaling everyone with outrageous stories of adventure.
No one and nothing could stop his endless search for stimulation.
He was true to his profile.
So how do you determine your fixed fate?
Look at the conscious unconscious column of information in your life chart, and find the top number in black (where the conscious fourth line is attached).
That is the gate number relating to your fixed fate.
Turn back to chapter 6 and read its meaning.
This is your immovable theme in life.
You can expound genius in your particular expression but can suffer when you're not appreciated by a world with a short attention span.
Yet it is so important that you are not deflected from your course in life.
I cannot overstate the importance of this truth, because if a rule system, job requirement, or family pressure diverts you from a heartfelt purpose, your life will fall to pieces as you lose connection with any sense of purpose.
The first-line foundations will fall away and the fourth line heart will break.
You are not here to live in the styles that everyone else takes for granted; your agenda is unique and you need to be aware of those who support you to live that truth, and those who, for one reason or another, are intimidated by your steadfast pursuit and do not understand its importance to your sense of balance and well being.
I admire anyone with a 4/1 profile because you have a tough agenda that is challenging at every turn.
You see everyone else being flexible and possibly random, and when you try to follow suit, you feel derailed.
So, please, I implore you to remain true to your nature.
Thank the naysayers for sharing their opinion, but live your life from your heart.
Put on the blinkers, become focused, and stick to your particular path.
When you do, you become a pillar of strength and conviction.
You are all heart, mean well, and will forever give 100 percent.
Ultimately, once you stop struggling against your nature's restrictions and accept your fragility, you will find success and fulfillment by following your heart-and finding your destiny.
Relationships with a 4/1
You will soon discover thatyour4/1 partner can be a little fixated in one direction.
If 4/1s' nature is embraced, and respected, they won't wish to try anything new and won't thank you for trying to expand their horizons.
You just have to let them be if you truly have their interests in mind.
Acceptance means the world to 4/1s because they are so rarely understood or appreciated for their sometimes rigid approach.
They feel as though they are constantly trying to protect their heart, when all they want to do is sing its song.
They will feel a lot of pressure to change and will need you to embrace them for who they are.
Once 4/1s feel free to be themselves, they can make an amazing heartfelt connection that brings about a sense of security.
Acknowledgment, appreciation, and unconditional acceptance are expressions of love in themselves.
It might not be an easy relationship, because anything that is immovable can lead to friction, but your 4/1 partner has a big heart, and if you can cut your cloth accordingly, a warm and unique relationship can soar in a freedom the 4/1 rarely feels.
Compatibility Because of your particularly unique profile, the most important thing is to honor yourself and life process first and foremost.
You'll find a certain degree of synergy among other 4/1s and 1/4s and will also get along with 4/6s.
