The Yang Metal day master is mounted on the Monkey and forms with it the personality pattern Bi Jian and the Nayin wood of the pomegranate. The Qi phase is Jianliu (nomination of luck).
Note: The element combination of the day master is considered to represent the me and provides the person with a set of basic traits that are influenced by the other element combinations of the year, month and hour. You find the entire chart of the year, month, day and hour element combination which are also called four pillars of destiny for David Quinlan further below.
A seductive personality, equipped with a moderate dose of ambition; sociable, always a little soft, who has command of his own passions and instincts. Taking only calculable risks is his favourite-sport, whereas he can totally rely onto his good intuition. As a little manipulator, this Machiavelli of the rat signs is generally a insatiable gourmet, who is inclined to the corpulence.
People, born in the month of the Ox have it easier to push their qualities through in the world. They are less impressionable and not easily influenced. This also means they have to mould themselves. This willpower is usually very good for many signs, however occasionally it changes to a vice, namely into an exaggerated quest for dominance. The task of the people born in the month of the Ox is to strengthen their spirituality and not to refer too much to intellectual matters alone.
Aquarius-Rats often seek their luck in foreign countries, are restless and impatient. Have they reached a goal they already go for the next. They are most often quite smart.
The elements and respective signs by the teachings of Bazi Suan Ming give a more complete analysis of a person than the normally known only chinese year sign. In Bazi Suan Ming ("Four Pillars of Destiny = eight signs") the day sign is the one that represents the me, and thus the key personality of a person. Of course the interaction between the elements and signs play also a significant role. Going into the depth of how to calculate those elements and how they interact with each other would go a step too far on this page. Only a person can be defined by his or her 8 elements which are represented by four heavenly stems and four earth branches. The earth branches consist of one of the animal signs which in themselves also represent an element.
The Year Pillar shows the relationship with family and society at large.
The Month Pillar represents your childhood and how you relate with your parents.
The Day Pillar provides information on your relationship with your spouse or partner - whereas the Day Stem (the upper sign) is considered your "Self Element" as it represents you within the chart.
The Hour Pillar refers to career and/or the relationship with children.
Each element (each phase) in the chart represents a specific person and your path in life. An optimal balanced element chart features each of the elements in the same strength, which of course, is seldomly the case. The interaction of the heavenly stems among each other as well as with the earth branches can create more elements.
|Birth Hour / Now||Birth Day / Now||Birth Month / Now||Birth Year / Now|
|Earth Branches Animal Sign|
|Hidden Dominating Heavenly Element|
|Hidden Remaining Heavenly Element|
As you can see I do not have the birth hour for David Quinlan making the analysis incomplete and unclear.
Singer, actor, artist, and author... David Quinlan rarely is a craftsperson. He does however well in the field of culture and communication. Said differently, you can find him onstage of the Olympia in Paris, in a leading position of Public-Relations in a big multinational company or also in a governmental organization. He loves the leading role. However, he can be also a perfect artist. Since he is a good organizer, he fulfills his tasks with intelligence and system.
He hates irresponsibility and hanging through and he loves work so very much that, if he doesn't have anything to do, becomes insufferable. He then no longer distinguishes between the importance and triviality, is detail-keen on, wrinkles his forehead, becomes arrogant and shows himself from his worst side. Thank God his sharp mind almost always then comes through and he corrects this mistake or doesn't let them come up at all.
If he is anxious and slightly aggressive, it often is because of his latent unrest. He always has too many worries about his future, his bank-account, his security and his loved ones. And if his professional surrounding is not satisfactory, if he cannot develop his abilities, shortly, if he is repressed, he can be really dejected. Never forget that his work is the most important thing in his life for.
But let us come back to his adaptability, his sense of observation and his sharp mind, which are responsible for many rat-men to be found in finances, trade, stock exchange or economy. Horribly proficient in work paired with an extraordinary memory, farsightedness and a will that does not leave anything to a coincidence, David Quinlan loves to control and to manipulate.
With this preference and the tendency to profiteering, he becomes so distrustful that he sometimes imagines being the victim of sneaky malevolence. If he is secured professionally, he transfers his fear potential to the sentimental area, a tendency even more distinctive with the rats, which are artistically or creatively active.
Although David Quinlan is very sociable, he has a big need for tenderness. Without friends and a family, he would not survive the changes of life. Thus, he is an emotional person, who is hypersensitive and far-sighted, which sometimes frightens him. He enjoys the evenings with friends, a stroll in the afternoon and a good meal - in short, the life to its fullest.
With reference to fidelity, David Quinlan doesn't possess the best reputation. He also melts easier than the men of the other signs as soon as his attention is attracted, and the corresponding lady in his eyes is seductive. He is also very receptive for a love hour around lunchtime, especially if his social situation allows it. However, he is no Don Juan; he never goes to the hunt... he yields! An extramarital adventure is only possible, if it is discreet and lucrative to him and does not threaten his home.
Getting involved with a married rat-man is possible only within exactly defined boundaries; the discretion is the trick of such a relationship. Furthermore, such a rat will never take a complete conversion into consideration. As security fanatics and extremely conservative human being in the love-life, he will get divorced only in extreme cases, despite the lady of his choice may have so great qualities. It is better to know this before you plan to adopt a rat.
If however, David Quinlan is your fulltime man, you have thousand and one reasons to be content. He will be tender and generous, never forget your birthday, he will shower you with gifts - if his financial means admit it -and will try instinctively to make you happy. You will be the one offering him security and balance, and since the unrest determines his love-life, he will be very aware. Since he is only rarely jealous and only sparsely possessive David Quinlan can be a charming friend and almost a perfect lover. In short, with him the risk of adultery can almost be neglected.
If you have managed to lure him to your home you have to realise that you are finally checked here. The Rat man reacts quite sensitive to his surroundings. Too much imagination, an apartment looking like a battle field, a softened illumination a black wall, a HiFi tower with the last concert of Madonna... all of this makes him insecure and probably lets him flee. But if on the other hand everything is clean and bright, artistically or in a friendly manner decorated; if the living room library contains some Skiras, the last Feminas or the works of La Pleiade, in short, if everything is simple but elegant you gain a few points.
He hates approaches, his memory is generally complete and he does not bear to be lured unprepared into a trap. Never tell him unimportant stories, never put him against made decisions he could close up and be extremely insulted especially at the beginning. Talk about the high and demanding cuisine which is an art he values. Tell him about the book you are reading, he is an eclectic who loves books beginning with detective stories, novels, art books, anthologies to travel reports. He loves the American Film, archaeology, painting and the music. With such a choice you will never lack a topic to talk about.
You could already see in the previous paragraphs what gifts you could give him for his birthday or a special day. Since the Rat man loves to collect books risks are only limited but avoid political works - he has never valued the ideological chaos - as well as Fantasy or Science Fiction novels. In this area he prefers Edgar A. Poe or Jules Verne. Besides scarves he also likes as a classic silken neckerchiefs, club ties and soft leather on the hands and the feet. Since he easily is cold you can also prove you relent by knitting a sweater for him. All of this will caress his aesthetic sense provided the little gifts are simple and tasteful. He will also like practical gifts such as a calendar by L'Expansion or the Financial Times, a PDA or a document briefcase made of leather. Avoid watches or fountain pens; he has already enough of them. Did I already mention that he is a bit conservative?
Rat and Rat
Two rats will basically understand each other quite well if they don't get into a competitive situation. Since both always want to be first, and since there can only be one, it can become the ground for big trouble. But if the rat follows her own matters and can be the best in her area both will treat each other with the utmost respect. A relationship between rats is often marked by a great openness which does not harm the mutual loyalty.
Rat and Rabbit
Between rat and rabbit tension can arise easily because they are quite different in their distinctive natures. While the combative rat likes to take any opportunity to define herself, the rabbit will perceive it as a rejection of his love. It is important that both learn to respect the needs of the other and not to devaluate them. Otherwise there is the danger to avoid each other. An open and value-free communication is paramount.
Rat and Dragon
Rat and dragon are pure energy! In this relationship one surprise follows the other and both enjoy that they still are perceived as freshly fallen in love even in later years. Many envy both for their unbroken passion for each other but behind the scenes something like exhaustion can spread. In order to have this energy not to evaporate it is advisable that rat and dragon combine this energy onto a goal. Together they are an unbeatable team.
Rat and Snake
At the first gaze the differences seem to overpower that what is in common in this relationship; the life hungry brave rat and the discrete, subtle snake. As often if two basically different natures meet there is something like a magical attraction which does not hold without problems in reality. If both don't approach each other continuously and accept intensively the quirks of the respective other worst disputes will ensue on a daily basis.
Rat and Horse
Two individualists meet in rat and horse and are intoxicated with each other. In physical regard we can talk about a true magnetism. But with regards to lifestyle there are extreme differences. The rat worries about the future and it is only important for the horse what happens in the here and now. Especially the rat has to pay the price in this unusual relationship by becoming often the handyman of the noble but rather unpractical horse.
Rat and Goat
What may have the rat and goat in common? To the outer world both seem to come from two different worlds. That is how different they are. But their relationship is one that does not need to represent but which reveals itself only to the attentive observer in quieter tones, in fine gesture and in imperceptible gazes. Often it has taken a long time until they have found each other but from friendship at first slowly but surely a heartfelt relationship has grown, which has a good chance to last for an eternity.
Rat and Monkey
This relationship can be quite intense in every aspect. All starts with the monkey and the rat finding some sort of a soul mate in each other. Both are rather restless types and have a high intellectual standard. The attraction between both cannot be denied but it is not constant but extremely volatile. On one day they like each other, the next they quarrel. All in all both will have a relationship which may seem crazy to others but which is also envied.
Rat and Rooster
When the rat and the rooster meet, both will ask them whether one is truly ready to give the other enough space. At first both feel threatened by the other. But a certain attraction cannot be denied because both feel quickly that they expect similar things of the world. Is that enough to form a relationship? Great space is needed and an infinite patience for the difficult sides of the other.
Rat and Dog
How tame the rat can become when a dog is present! The rat's sometimes demanding nature gets soft tones when the dog takes care of her. And the dog loves when his rat overdoes it from time to time and gets him out of his reserves. All in all their interaction is quite contemplative. Perhaps dog and rat cannot believe it sometimes themselves how unproblematic their contradicting natures fit, but in the end both will enjoy their destiny.
Rat and Pig
Whether the pig and the rat get along well depends basically on how well the rat can adapt to the kind and trustfully, perhaps sometimes the portly nature of the pig. May there be a mutual sympathy on the basis of common interests in the beginning the rat soon misses the edge in the relationship. Crises are pre-programmed, which could lead to the pig and rat getting closer if they are overcome together. Then both will value what they have in the other.
Rat and Tiger
The rat and tiger have one thing in common; their urge for freedom and their passion. But in their goals they do not always see eye to eye. While the rat takes things into the hand and already wants to plan her future the priority of the tiger lies rather in blossoming in the here and now even if he does not know where the path may lead. To make a stable relationship from a passionate encounter both must be very willing to compromise.
Rat and Ox
It is said that rat and ox are made for each other because their contrary natures complement each other and get the best out of each. It is important that both adjust to each other. The rat has thus to learn to accept the ox whish for stability and the ox has to give the rat space for her urge of independence. If both go hand in hand, the two can finish more things than some other combinations.
