Astrology and Gene Keys
Decoding the Synthesis
The Role of Astrology in the Gene Keys
“From time immemorial, mankind has devised intuitive systems to understand the rhythms and timing of when people are born.There are obvious and fundamental truths that different cultures have discovered. Each of the 64 Gene Keys has a position within the arc of the year, creating a unique genetic astrology for each of us.” -Gene Key 15
The synthesis between the I Ching and Western Astrology compose the primary coordinates for the Gene Keys Transmission. The hexagrams of the I Ching are the fundamental 64 genetic archetypes that make up the Gene Keys, and their overlay onto the Astrological wheel gives the Gene Keys context into our personal lives.
Set to a logarithmic pattern around the zodiac, each of the 64 hexagrams has a unique position along the wheel, finding its home in a particular astrological sign. This Zodiacal I Ching is a finely tuned astro-genetic tool used most commonly in the Gene Keys to generate the Hologenetic Profile. The planetary alignments on the day of one’s birth (and that of 88 days prior) are calculated using the hexagram wheel, determining a unique set of Gene Keys are laid out to form each individual blueprint.
The Pulse – Tracking the Gene Key of the Day
The Gene Keys Pulse tracks the current global theme through the position of the Sun as it moves through each of the 64 Gene Keys within the year. Approximately every 5 and a half days, the Sun travels through each of the six line permutations of a Gene Key before changing to the next hexagram in sequence. For example, January 6th, 2020 marked the beginning of the sun’s travel through Gene Key 54. It begins at 54.1, and proceeds through 54.2, 54.3, 54.4, 54.5, and finally becoming 54.6 on January 11th, 2020. The Pulse Calendar tracks this global theme as Gene Key 54 (January 6th – January 12th).
You can stay up to date with the current global theme of the Gene Keys through the free Pulse newsletter and calendar.
Astrology Attributes in the Living Library
In the Living Library, every Gene Key has an additional attribute card describing the Astrology Archetype represented by that Zodiac Sign. The Astrology and Gene Keys Descriptions were created by Amma Li Grace and Gemini Brett.
Included in these interpretations of each Zodiac sign is a new “Spectrum of Consciousness” for the archetype, featuring a Shadow Gift and Siddhi for each Zodiac sign. Contemplate these archetypes in connection with the Gene Key and see what insights emerge!
“In the great wheeling arc of the 64 Gene Keys, every Gene Key has an exact position in relationship to the cosmos and thus filters the cosmic stream as it enters our planetary system.”

Decoding the Gene Keys Astrological Coordinates
This graph was generated by Gene Keys Ambassador Amma Li Grace to quickly decode the Zodiacal Coordinate for each Gene Key. For those engaged in Western Astrology, this is a tool to discover greater synthesis between the two systems.
The position of the planets at the time of birth gives us great meaning in our personal lives. But it doesn’t stop there. We can also track the current planetary positions, or transits, as they orbit the sun in relation to the earth. Much can be revealed about our present reality and the the archetypal patterns playing out in our lives by mapping the movements of the planets through the Zodiacal I Ching. Questions like: ‘ What Gene Key is the full moon in this month?’ -or- ‘Which of the 64 keys did Mercury go retrograde in last month?’ are inquiries we can explore together in the Lab with the Gene Keys ephemeris, or you can discover in your own personal astrological investigations.
Extra information for the astrologically minded…
How many degrees is each Gene Key / Line?
Each Gene Key (Hexagram / Gate) is distributed evenly across the Zodiacal wheel. Meaning…
360 degrees / 64 = 5.625 degrees per Gene Key Hexagram
5.625 degrees / 6 lines = .9375 degrees per Line
The lines are progressive, so ever .9 degrees it changes to the next line. Meaning the planets traverse from 17.1 to 17.2 progressively to 17.6 before moving to the next Gene Key in sequence 21.1. The lines always move from 1 to 6.
This is why it is “approximately” 6 days per Gene Key, and “approximately” 1 day per line. But not precisely.
Tropical v Sidereal
The hexagram wheel of the 64 correlates to the zodiac of Tropical astrology, as opposed to that of Sidereal astrology. The tropical zodiac is based upon the relationship between the earth and the sun, where each sign correlates to the seasonal cycles of earth as it orbits the sun on its axis. For instance, each cardinal sign begins at the solstice and equinox points of each year. Sidereal astrology, on the other hand, charts the signs to the position of the fixed star constellations in the sky, which due to the procession of the equinox is moving 1 degree every 71.6 years.
