The Yang-Earth day master is mounted on the Dog. Bille August's universal energy is Grave.
With pleasure, Bille August devotes to his leisure pursuits and leaves work with only a little remorse because he makes sure not to get entirely taken up in his work to not sacrifice every dream to reality. You could say Bille August is some kind of seasonal worker who attempts to achieve with big leaps what others build up with yearslong effort. Power and influence possess a high value for him an despite sporadic work mania, he is strongly marked by competitive behaviour. That somebody could be quicker, better, cleverer and stronger than him, inspires his assertiveness. To take a special position amongst his fellow men is an absolute given for him.
Trustfulness paired with an enormous portion of charm is the essential trait of Bille August. He loves the togetherness with people and always creates a friendly and open atmosphere. Only when he dislikes someone entirely, he gives no pardon. Bille August 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 Bille August in every area mandatory. All that represents the balance of powers he likes. As a result, he does not appreciate change.
Bille August 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. Bille August 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.
Bille August 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, Bille August 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.
Bille August 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 Bille August is imbalanced inwardly. Closeness and tenderness quickly become too much for him because he desires to be independent.
Bille August possesses a definite sense of truth, is temperamental and tends to enter stormy-romantic affairs. He may spread himself too thin because he wants to go into all directions at the same time. The own ego, he takes enormously seriously.
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 Bille August'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 Bille August a Yang Earth winter person. Earth is trapped 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 Bille August listed in the respective table cells.
