The Yang-Metal day master is mounted on the Dragon. Burt Brinckerhoff's universal energy is Nurturing.
With pleasure, Burt Brinckerhoff 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 Burt Brinckerhoff 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.
Burt Brinckerhoff is very much in balance with himself and possesses stamina. His passionate sense of justice is the primary trait of his personality. Thereby, he is incredibly generous and helpful. Acknowledgement and praise are mandatory for him. If that is denied or puts him back, he feels deadly unhappy and hit in his nerve centre.
Burt Brinckerhoff possesses a high opinion of himself and makes decisions on his own without asking others. He wants to be in attendance everywhere. Often he has to adapt because he is less pressure resistant than he wants to be. Burt Brinckerhoff needs the support and energy from the family and his friends. He sounds well, is a sweet-talker and sometimes promises too much.
Sometimes Burt Brinckerhoff tends to be melancholic. He possesses a high drive and wants to put projects into reality. However, he should not undertake anything exceeding his circumstances. If problems arise, Burt Brinckerhoff listens to his inner voice but his inner feelings he does not show. Burt Brinckerhoff is just and loves the truth and sometimes is sad without reason. Full of ambition, he and wants to be successful and enjoys the fruits of his success.
Extrovert, he is quickly tempted by speculation or gambling. Burt Brinckerhoff's life is either desire or tragedy whereas he savours both. He loves to act and likes the society and a big audience. He is appreciated because of his courage, charm, his generosity and intelligence. However, Burt Brinckerhoff is not a splendid listener. With a bit more flexibility and tolerance he could become wealthy.
Burt Brinckerhoff 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 Burt Brinckerhoff'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 Burt Brinckerhoff 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 Burt Brinckerhoff listed in the respective table cells.
