In the temple of your heart lives the wisdom. Endurance is the key to the gate into the sanctuary of your inner knowledge.
Xin (Yin Metal): very weak Day Master
Day pillar: Metal-Snake
God: Direct Power
Metal In Wax
The Yin-Metal day master is mounted on the Snake. Chris Bradford's universal energy is Death.
Chris Bradford consistently demands new, sensational impressions and develops little sense of thoughtful introspection or silent contemplation. Volatile, he always grasps at new stars and has a hard time to finish a thing. Thereby, Chris Bradford acts very emotive, cordial and helpful when it is necessary. Problems he may want to overcome with a change of location whereas Chris Bradford forgets that the reason for all the difficulties, namely he, comes along no matter where he goes. Yet, to stay somewhere where trouble is brewing is just impossible for him. When something does not run according to plan, Chris Bradford openly shows his frustration. That happens more often because he always goes the full Monty and takes every risk.
Although Chris Bradford reacts extremely sensitive when he gets hurt, he is mostly balanced and in harmony with himself in the daily routine. Partly, that is because he knows how to skillfully avoid conflict. Due to his strong attraction, Chris Bradford is able to provide many impulses to his fellow men and has a performance enhancing impact on them as well. However, Chris Bradford also depends on constant praise and acknowledgement. His favourite place in life is just the centre of attention and if you contest this position, he can react rather offended. But mostly, he gathers with his radiating and winning demeanour so many admirers around him, it does not come to that.
Chris Bradford is sensitive, intuitive and mentally interested and seeks emotional safety. Sadly he does not possess a lot of will power although secretly he feels superior. Often he must adapt, lacks patience and it is hard for him to make quick decisions. He appears as a sweet-talker and makes too many promises he partially does not keep.
Chris Bradford possesses a well sounding voice and wants to enjoy the fruits of his success. He is driven by an inner voice and follows it no matter whether right or wrong, right into success or failure. Feelings, Chris Bradford does not communicate. He can be successful but can also motivate others to success. Chris Bradford is just, honest, sometimes sad and full of longing.
He possesses great intuition, is linguistically gifted and likes to uncover secrets. In doing so, Chris Bradford uses indirect methods and only acts in the background. He always appears elegantly and neat but not brash. Doing business does not seem to be successful.
Chris Bradford is a Rat in its element. He is a true master of fostering social relationships and far-spread friendships. Thus, loneliness is a foreign word for him. Also in love, he is mostly successful.
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 Chris Bradford'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 Chris Bradford a Yin Metal summer person. Metal is dead in summer.
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 Chris Bradford listed in the respective table cells.
