Wood-Snake - The Year Sign
God: Drastic Output
The cunning to lead others astray leads you onto dark paths. To act without deceiving maintains purity.
Wu (Yang Earth): strong Day Master
Day pillar: Earth-Rat
God: Direct Wealth
The Yang-Earth day master is mounted on the Rat. Ben Stiller's universal energy is Embryo.
Ben Stiller possesses inexhaustible resources of ideas and plans. Due to his strong attractiveness, he also provides many impulses to his fellow men and has a performance motivating impact on them. However, he always depends on praise and acknowledgement to actually advance. Yet, most of the time, Ben Stiller possesses such a winning demeanour that one looks admiringly up to him and likes to be in his company. Since Ben Stiller tends to be somewhat jealous, he must deal with those feelings from time to time. Envy and competitive thinking too can become a problem for him since Ben Stiller is extremely performance-driven and ambitious.
Ben Stiller is a kind being, possesses humour and taste and it is easy for him to establish contact with other people. He tends to worry about others but not about himself. Being slower than other people, he is the more stable and consequent. Ben Stiller does not waste time with big plans but deals with the real world. He is an excellent manager and organiser but sometimes has difficulties to finish a project.
Ben Stiller could possess a wild, peevish nature and easily overdoes it. Luckily he calms down quite quickly and one can trust him. His focus lies on practicability because Ben Stiller is not flexible and cannot do different things at the same time. He is not emotional but sensitive and expects agreement whereas he deals with his problems on his own.
Sudden change disturbs him whereas slow change he can manage quite well. He is reliable, steadfast, faithful, persistent, robust, traditional, conservative, practical, generous and loyal, full of energy, ambitious and intelligent. Ben Stiller may like to collect and has a liking for real estate. He is a creative thinker, able to be enthusiastic about anything new but sometimes, others do not comprehend his plans and actions.
Ben Stiller is open-minded and optimistic and acts responsibly and honourably towards others. If he had not had such a broad horizon, he would be endangered to be seen as self-righteous. Compared to other Snakes, Ben Stiller does not take much care about a perfect outfit. That makes him approachable for others, and since he is considered to be worldly-wise due to his journeys, others seek Ben Stiller's advice.
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 Ben Stiller'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 Ben Stiller a Yang Earth winter person. In winter Earth is trapped.
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 Ben Stiller.
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.
