The Yang-Earth day master is mounted on the Dog. Andrew Robinson's universal energy is Grave.
Andrew Robinson is hospitable, down to earth and loves to be the centre of attention. There is always an open door for bypassers and an open ear for people seeking advice. Yet, he does not possess the great decidedness and mostly waits until others take the initiative. This aspect, Andrew Robinson also feels in his relationships, because it's hard for him to make decisions. Once he has, let it be marriage or a professional matter, he will never give in. Andrew Robinson fights until the end even if the relationship has been in shards for a while or the plan has turned out to be undoable.
Andrew Robinson is rather introvert and likes to spend his time indoors. Being apt to keep money or save it, he worries about others but nearly never about himself. A tad slower than other people, he is but the more constant and consequent. Andrew Robinson does not waste time with big plans but takes care of the real world. An excellent organiser and manager, he concentrates on practicability whereas he is persistent in realisation.
Andrew Robinson lacks flexibility and is not able to handle several things at the same time and needs to organise everything one step after the other. Not emotional but sensitive, Andrew Robinson demands agreement from others. Change is easily managed by him if he acts slowly and not rashly. He is fair, faithful, reliable, persistent, robust, conservative, practical, brave, friendly, and hospitable and engaged in his profession.
Andrew Robinson may like to collect things and in business he quickly recognises the motives of any interlocutor. Not liking big parties, he prefers a small circle of people. Sometimes Andrew Robinson is imbalanced inwardly. Closeness and tenderness quickly become too much for him because he desires to be independent.
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 stems and the branches of Andrew Robinson'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 Robinson a Yang Earth spring person. In spring Earth is dead.
However, the day master's element strength can differ from the element's season strength because they interact and, depending on the season, further, control or harm each other.
To show those element interactions, there are the so-called 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). You find those in the respective table cells for Andrew Robinson.
The BAZI is all about balance. Too strong elements or too weak ones should be balanced.
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.
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.
The Year Pillar shows the relationship with family and society at large.
The Month Pillar represents the childhood and how you relate with 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.
