The Human Design of Britney Spears

Kylie Broadfoot- Human Design Coach

Britney Spears has never been far from the spotlight and right now she’s back in it following the release of her memoir, The Woman in Me. 

I’m guessing if you’re here reading this, you know in broad strokes who Britney is. Or at least, the main pieces. If you don’t, here’s a quick summary (and a Google search will fill in the rest):

  • She entered the world of performance via singing and dancing before she had even started school. 
  • She auditioned as a Mouseketeer with The Mickey Mouse Club at age 8 but was turned down (she was later accepted at age 11 and was alongside Justin Timberlake); 
  • She was a State-level gymnast and did ads, TV shows and talent shows, and was signed to her first record label at 15
  • She hit the big time with #1 hits in 1999 and was the face of a new era of ‘teen pop’
  • She’s sold over 150 million records, has a swag of Awards and has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. 
  • She had a 13-year+ conservatorship placed on her that ended in 2021

Britney is a Manifesting Generator (MG), here to be multi-passionate and able to make things happen quickly with her creativity and consistent energy when she’s doing what she loves. She has said ‘I had always felt music in my bones and my blood’ and it was clearly something that fuelled her. She has used her powerful energy to impact the world. 

Variety magazine noted back in 2021 that ‘As one of the world’s most iconic singers, Britney Spears‘ music undeniably changed the pop landscape and continues to do so more than two decades after her first single dropped. Since breaking out into superstardom in 1999 with her debut album “…Baby One More Time,” Spears has consistently pushed the boundaries of what pop music can be, winning over and inspiring countless fans with her southern charm and sugary-sweet voice’.

Manifesting Generators are designed to follow their satisfaction and excitement and may realise they’re off track if they find frustration or anger coming up consistently in a particular area of life. They often have different iterations or incarnations of their career or work, and don’t follow a linear path.

Britney’s profile is a 5/1. With line 5, she’s naturally talented and was definitely a disruptive force to the music scene from 1999 onwards, with her teen pop takeover. It’s common for those with this line to be impacted by the projections of others. For Britney, this has been reported to have come from her family, the media, those in the industry and the general public.

With a 1 line, she has a passion for mastering her craft and spending hours perfecting it. For example, with her choreography, she wanted to really nail it and kept rehearsing until it was up to her standard. Those with a 1 line need time alone to reflect and learn, which was probably very difficult for her to have. As she said in her only interview with People magazine, following her memoir release:

‘It’s hard to speak about – not getting a moment of peace, the judgments from strangers who don’t even know me, having my freedom stripped away from me by my family and the government [and] losing my passion for the things I love.”

She has an independent definition which means she can work efficiently and get so much done in a short amount of time while working in her own flow. It may have been hard for others who didn’t have this definition to work as quickly as she did, for example with a team of dancers.

With a Trust Your Gut (sacral) inner authority, she’s designed to feel the gut pull of decisions that feel right for her in the moment, rather than trying to make those decisions from up in her head.

She also has an innate Talent (a channel) and is here to master things. She says:

‘I ended up getting a record deal with Jive Records at the age of fifteen. The label wanted me in a studio immediately. I worked for hours straight. My work ethic was strong. If you knew me then, you wouldn’t hear from me for days. I would stay in the studio as long as I could. If anyone wanted to leave, I’d say, “I wasn’t perfect.”

She’s meant to have a powerful voice and be able to communicate her intuitive knowings to the world. The People article writes, “Another dream has been to reclaim her voice. ‘Over the past 15 years or even at the start of my career, I sat back while people spoke about me and told my story for me,’ she says. ‘After getting out of my conservatorship, I was finally free to tell my story without consequences from the people in charge of my life.’ 

Knowing which ideas to pursue and what is urgent while trusting her gut knowing, is key to not feeling overwhelmed and stressed. Finding healthy ways to destress, and harness her inspiration, are beneficial for her. 

With an undefined Ego centre, she can doubt her own worth and find her self-esteem wanes at times. She referred to experiencing this from childhood:

‘Feeling like you’re never good enough is a soul-crushing state of being for a child’. 

With an undefined Identity centre, she may feel like she doesn’t know who she is sometimes and can try (or be encouraged) to put herself into a box, even though it doesn’t feel right. She talked about getting so heavily into character as an actor that she lost her sense of self. 

‘I really became this other person. Some people do Method acting, but they’re usually aware of the fact that they’re doing it. But I didn’t have any separation at all. I hope I never get close to that occupational hazard again. Living that way, being half yourself and half a fictional character, is messed up. After a while you don’t know what’s real anymore.
Since I’ve been free, I’ve had to construct a whole different identity. I’ve had to say, Wait a second, this is who I was — someone passive and pleasing. A girl. And this is who I am now — someone strong and confident. A woman’. 

Britney may find that she feels things deeply and can over-identify with the emotions of others. Reminding herself that those emotions aren’t her’s to hold onto, and to take time to be in her own space, may be so helpful for her to recalibrate. 

There is so much more to her chart, and her as a person. If nothing else, Britney is definitely a survivor and I’m really looking forward to seeing what’s on the horizon for her.
