Earth-Ox - The Year Sign
God: Indirect Power
The dark path leads into the impassable deep. Idle waiting cuts you off from the source of your liveliness.
Bing (Yang Fire): very weak Day Master
Day pillar: Fire-Rat
God: Direct Power
Water Of The Ditch
The Yang-Fire day master is mounted on the Rat. Bill Nighy's universal energy is Embryo.
Bill Nighy is not as stubborn as other oxen because he possesses a more subtle and pronounced instinct and more communal spirit. That makes him flexible and charming with a greater openness towards other people. Due to a thorough need of planning, Bill Nighy often complements the ponderous eagerness of the Ox with an intelligent and prudent foresight.
Bill Nighy can sometimes be aggressive and put psychological pressure onto others. But in general, he is inoffensive, an excellent motivator and tackles matters very well. Sometimes he seems reserved, cold and introvert but is actually stable and does not like to make a show. Preconceived opinions are hard for Bill Nighy to give up. He does possess creative energy and has many ideas.
Bill Nighy is able to infect others with his ideas, but those are sometimes hard to comprehend. Initiating many activities, he does not finish them most of the time. Often he seems to be a mystery to others.
Bill Nighy keeps problems to himself and is able to deal well with the money of others but not with his own. He is honest, trustworthy, loyal and generous and probably will marry a beautiful and attractive partner.
Bill Nighy belongs to the Oxen that are most fond of travelling, has philosophical impulses and would be will off as a teacher or author. However, he will also not start an expedition to unknown territory but at least the occasional trip to the neighbouring village. His surroundings should possess a thicker skin since Bill Nighy's words include horns.
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 Bill Nighy'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 Bill Nighy a Yang Fire winter person. Fire is dead 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 Bill Nighy listed in the respective table cells.
