The Yin-Earth day master is mounted on the Rooster. Alan Alda's universal energy is Growth & Flourish.
Joy of life and waste oppose the career and diligence. Alan Alda often feels as if two souls were in his breast. Yet, he possesses a warm and accommodating nature. If he manages to deal with those two opposing aspects of his soul life, he will lead a pleasant life. Pleasures paired with stability, the desire to conquer and the love of adventure in combination with much empathy and a sense of family balance and complement each other perfectly.
Alan Alda possesses a moderate temper, is honourable, tolerant and intelligent and has artistic abilities at his disposal and a quick mental ability. He is popular and because he is passionate, Alan Alda is apt for a quick career to a high position. He may love farming and gardening and tends to worry about others but not about himself. Being slower than other people, Alan Alda is, on the other hand, constant and consequent.
Not wasting time with big plans he takes care of the real world, is a good manager and organiser and you can trust him. His focus lies on practicability, although he is not flexible and not able to do several things at the same time. Alan Alda is not emotional but sensitive and expects agreement, but once he has accepted a person, he becomes a good friend who is always available if help is needed. However, abrupt change disturb Alan Alda very much but he is able to manage it when done slowly.
Alan Alda can be incredibly stubborn, reliable, steadfast, faithful, persistent, robust, traditional, conservative and practical and likes to collect. When it comes to the art, Alan Alda is a bit feminine but character-wise firm and decided. He is brave and socially engaged. His business sense is concentrated on the fine arts with which he could gain wealth. Being an excellent observer, Alan Alda is unbiased and meticulous in anything he does. He possesses a good eye for details, is a good host and partner and understands to enjoy all of the life's beautiful and delicious facets.
Alan Alda is a smart but also restless person venturing from one goal to the next. He is a radiating, eccentric personality for whom life is pleasure. Alan Alda is hard to assess and whether you love or hate him is not of his doing. One thing is for sure, it will never be boring with him.
Forget all about the Chinese Year sign you are born in. It doesn't say much about you. Chinese astrology is much more complex!
The following table lists the heavenly stems and earth branches of Alan Alda's BAZI chart at his birth. The day master (DM), first row of the day pillar, is the self-element. It represents the me, the key from which all stems and branches receive their strength. That makes Alan Alda a Yin Earth winter person. Earth is trapped in winter.
However, the day master's strength can differ from the element's season strength. The reason is the interactions of the stems and earth branches with each other. Depending on the season and type of element interaction the elements can further, control or harm each other. They can also clash.
To make those element interactions graspable, there are 10 gods; 7 Killings (7K), Direct Officer (DO), Indirect Wealth (IW), Direct Wealth (DW), Indirect Resource (IR), Direct Resource (DR), Friend (F), Rob Wealth (RW), Eating God (EG) and Hurting Officer (HO).
I'm working on a Chinese Metaphysics blog which is not online yet. In the future all of the above will be explained into depth, so you will be able to understand the meanings. For now, you find the gods for Alan Alda listed in the respective table cells.
