Wood-Rooster - The Year Sign
God: Indirect Power
If you like yourself too much, you seldom appeal. The appearance only blinds those who are naive - the true being is what gets lost.
Ren (Yang Water): very strong Day Master
Day pillar: Water-Rat
God: Indirect Wealth
Wood Of The Mulberry Tree
The Yang-Water day master is mounted on the Rat. Andrew Birkin's universal energy is Imperial Glow.
A shiny, brilliant appearance distinguishes Andrew Birkin from others. Because aside from his always clean looks, he appears charming, smart and sensitive. However, internally he is not as balanced as it would seem to the outside world. While Andrew Birkin diligently attempts to work for the foundation of his existence, he at the same time spends the money and that just because of appearances.
A definite sense of responsibility involves him in a secure, social network for which he feels responsible. With all these contradictions, Andrew Birkin is enormously empathic. He possesses a strong instinct and sense of the interests of his fellow men. When he manages to balance his internal tension, he will gain the respect of his surroundings as a skilled mediator and firm personality and takes on a particular standing amongst them.
Andrew Birkin is able to motivate himself and has the desire to communicate. He is a good talker but tends to emotional coldness. You see him always well-clothed with the desire to making a good impression since he wants acknowledgement, honour and leadership. In his decision-making, Andrew Birkin decides everything on his own. Being a good communicator, Andrew Birkin prefers the indirect manner of communication whereas he trusts his intuition and uses flexibility and endurance to become successful.
He detests the fight because he is weak but possesses a great strength of mind. He is able to emotionally influence others but also gets easily influenced by them, and he can be vain and arrogant. Often he seems restless and moody and appreciates mental wealth a lot more than the material wealth. It could also be that friends or close relatives want to use his wealth for themselves.
Andrew Birkin is a creative thinker and is enthused about anything new. Since he initiates a lot but is not a finisher, he needs someone to encourage him and to support him. Often he seems to be a riddle for others because his ideas and actions are sometimes hard to comprehend. His ambition, energy and intelligence are noteworthy. Problems Andrew Birkin keeps to himself and he can deal better with the money of others than with his own.
Andrew Birkin speaks up, is a total disaster as a diplomat and phrases things mostly as they are. Occasionally, he loves to philosophise. Andrew Birkin's outfit is mostly down to earth and practical, always fit for the occasion and never over the top. He loves to travel and talk to similar minded people, is liberal-minded and may find his partner in another culture. If he must work in a profession that demands sitting still, he will entirely be unhappy. Alternation and fresh air are mandatory for 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 Andrew Birkin'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 Andrew Birkin a Yang Water winter person. Water is prosperous 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 Andrew Birkin listed in the respective table cells.
