Wood-Goat - The Year Sign
The tightness of the heart does not only protect from harm. Sorrow only attracts misfortune. Loneliness is the fear of the fear.
Earth-Ox - The strong Day Master
The Yin-Earth day master is mounted on the Ox. Brendan Gleeson's universal energy is Grave.
Brendan Gleeson tends to worry about others but not about himself and is slower than other people but the more stable and consequent. He does not waste time with big plans but deals with the real world. He is an excellent manager and organiser.
Brendan Gleeson could possess a peevish nature and easily explode but also quickly calm down. You can trust him. His focus lies on practicability because he is not flexible and cannot do several things at the same time. He is not emotional but sensitive and expects agreement. Sudden change disturbs him whereas slow change is managed quite well.
He is reliable, steadfast, faithful, persistent, robust, traditional, conservative and practical and likes to collect. As a continuing worker Brendan Gleeson prefers tested methods and brings projects ahead with his patience and persistence. He believes in himself and is most of the time introvert. He likes to be indoors.
Brendan Gleeson shows patriarchal features providing him with much security. But also, his instinct, his fine nose is supported. There is nearly nothing he could not detect in advance. And thus, it is not very hard for Brendan Gleeson to climb the career ladder even if he neglects the private environment from time to time. He is also capable of planning. Brendan Gleeson may prefer a work in the pedagogic area combining leadership qualities with cordiality.
In Brendan Gleeson, two contradicting sides can be found. One appreciates the pleasant life like nobody else, but the other wants to work lifelong. Thus, Brendan Gleeson is sometimes torn between two extremes. Yet, if he manages to get both under one hat, it will be favourable for him because the also given attitude of waste gets extremely decreased. Clever, sensitive, realistic and friendly is Brendan Gleeson. A sense of tradition and family and a warm-hearted demeanour make him a winning personality.
Brendan Gleeson always stands a bit outside the flock even if he urgently needs it to satisfy his desire for warmth and emotional safety. Compared to other goats, he is remarkably sturdy and persistent, and from time to time there might be conflict. To give in is not in his nature, but he also does not steamroller other people. He rather likes to use his charm when wanting to achieve a goal.
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.
|Heavenly Stem||—||Yin Earth||Yin Earth||Yin Wood||Yin Water|
|Hidden Dominating||Yin Earth||Yin Wood||Yin Earth||Yin Metal|
|Hidden Remaining||—||Yin Water||—||Yin Fire||—|
|Treasure Chest||—||Yin Metal||—||Yin Wood||—|
As you see, I do not have Brendan Gleeson's birth time, which makes the element analysis incomplete and unclear. Thus, the real strength for each of the elements cannot finally be calculated.
The Year Pillar shows the relationship with family and society at large.
