A Penta in Human Design is how we describe, and map, the energy of a small group (a family, a small business, a team within a larger organization, etc.).
It’s a “trans-auric form” -- an energetic form created when the auras of 3 or more people come together (and as people leave or join the group, it changes).
The Penta/BG5 is the trans-auric form for group of less than 9 people (most commonly 3-5), while the WA/OC16 is the trans-auric form for groups of 10 or more.
Being in a small group of 3-9 people happens all the time in our lives (with our families, friends, neighbours, teams, at work, in masterminds, etc.) and you can feel that the energy of the group is different to how you feel on your own, or even with just one other person.
I found learning about the Penta so affirming and it helped explain so much of my comfort or discomfort in small groups throughout my life. (Which is really like Human Design in general, it gives us so much permission...
As a business owner, you may feel like there's a real weight on your shoulders, you're carrying it all, you're responsible for making it happen.
Got to bring the clients in, pay yourself, pay your team, get your vision together, take the steps that you need to get there...
And all that responsibility has weight. Sure there's upsides to running your own business, of course, but that weight can feel like a lot.
And some days, you just feel tired. Exhausted, even.
It's okay to read a book, watch Netflix garden, go for a walk, play with your kids. Whatever it is, that fills you back up. That's not slacking off. It doesn't mean that your business is a failure. It doesn't mean that you're being unproductive. I see it as tanking yourself up.
We have to fill ourselves back up in order to keep going in order to take the next step tomorrow. And in my experience, pouring back into ourselves is always, always worth it, especially as business owners.
“Just do what lights you up,” right?
This is advice that as Generators and Manifesting Generators we've heard thousands of times before. I've probably even said it!
And there’s nuance here. If we're only doing what lights us up, we're missing out, potentially, on a whole lot of satisfaction.
As a Manifesting Generator, satisfaction is my green light feeling. That's my signature feeling. When I feel satisfied, it's like a little flag on the trail telling you are still on the right path.
Just like frustration is my red light feeling. That's just an invitation to pause and consider where I might have lost the trail, and what I need to do to get back on track.
And what I've noticed is that satisfaction can show up even after something I'm not all that excited about doing in the moment. I don't have to be lit up by the doing to necessarily feel satisfied after. Not everything that is satisfying feels amazing in the moment.
Satisfaction is finishing my taxes.

50% of the world needs to wait for clarity before making decisions.
My husband is one of these people.
And in this episode of LUMOS I share the story of what it felt like for him to be put on the spot and rushed in his process (spoiler: not great!).
So this one is for all the Emotional Authorities and all of us who love & work with them (that's everyone) and how we can accommodate all decision-making timelines in our business and life.
We are each wired to work, process information and learn best in different environments.
In this episode of LUMOS I share how my first day solo in my house after weeks of COVID lockdown in France was incredibly ordinary and incredibly perfect. And showed me exactly how my ideal work environment influences my energy.
And then I dive into how you can use your Human Design definition to help you figure out how you do your best work in your ideal work environment.
The biggest "Shadow" in my Human Design is my wide open Heart center. This means that I have the most unlearning to do around feeling like I have to prove myself, to achieve for the admiration and respect of other people.
I've done A LOT of work on this. To let go of doing things for the respect of others or not doing things I really want to do because I'm worried I'll lose that admiration.
And yet, what I've realized during this pandemic lockdown is I still use work as a way to prove myself.
In this episode of LUMOS I explore how this sneaky Shadow was showing up in my business and how I'm moving through it.
