Trustfulness paired with an enormous portion of charm is the essential trait of Avery Brooks. He loves the togetherness with people and always creates a friendly and open atmosphere. Only when he dislikes someone entirely, he gives no pardon. Avery Brooks can be then rather repellent. Most of the time, he knows at the first gaze who he likes and who not. Also in the profession, he cannot collaborate with somebody he does not like. Sympathy is for Avery Brooks in every area mandatory. All that represents the balance of powers he likes. As a result, he does not appreciate change.
Avery Brooks is very temperamental, venturesome and elated with a guaranteed maximum of flexibility and drive. When he tackles something, he does not hesitate for long but directly starts. Most of the time, Avery Brooks knows all the tricks leading to success and also has no qualms to use them because he wants to put his ideas into reality and see results. Avery Brooks possesses much humour and imagination. But woe the person coming too close hurting his nearly aristocrat ego! Avery Brooks possesses an adamant and authoritative demeanour which makes it easy for others to look up to him. He also works hard to gain a top position, is exact and fussy and makes every step with extreme accuracy.
Outwardly Avery Brooks presents himself as a powerful being and hides his internal weaknesses and the real self behind an appealing appearance. He likes to be admired, is gentle, moderate, intelligent and possesses a moral perception. With his high drive, Avery Brooks is ambitious and wants to be successful. While following his goals, Avery Brooks can be both focused and aggressive, emotional, intuitive and acts confidentially. He listens to an inner voice no matter whether it is right or wrong. Not talking about his feelings and problems, Avery Brooks is able to motivate others and lead them to success.
Sadness, justice, truth, ruefulness and yearning define Avery Brooks' life. He loves company, is active, future-oriented, sensitive and mentally interested. Blows of fate hit him hard. He is stable, reliable and honourable. Moreover Avery Brooks has a talent for craftsmanship and is verbally and mentally gifted, charming, optimistic and adventurous. In relationships he makes a companionate partner.
Avery Brooks is a good listener, is inventive and creates surprising solutions for the daily problems. Sadly he lacks staying powers. However, he refuses help since he thinks to possess enough own power and creativity. He makes an excellent negotiator and loves new trends and ideas. To keep the peace, he may not always tell the truth. He must take extra caution of addiction. Alcohol, drugs but also gambling are a dangerous temptation to him.
Avery Brooks is by far not as balanced as it would seem but he is a tender master of persuasiveness, loves luxury and possesses an exceptional desire for intimate closeness. All that makes him an idolised being many would love to have as a partner.
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 Avery Brooks' 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 Avery Brooks a Yang Metal autumn person. Metal is prosperous in autumn.
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 Avery Brooks listed in the respective table cells.
