The Yang-Water day master is mounted on the Rat. Colin Ford's universal energy is Imperial Glow.
Colin Ford is marked by a radiant, brilliant appearance but who is not as balanced internally as it seems to the outside world. He tends to make fantastic plans that turn out to be duds in the end while at the same time he devotedly attempts to build up the foundation for a secure livelihood. When Colin Ford manages to overcome his internal contradictions, he won't belie his radiant appearance. As highly skilled mediator, as a steady personality, Colin Ford will gain the full respect of his fellow men and take on a special position amongst them.
Colin Ford is kind-hearted and charming but also goal-oriented and ambitious. Full of energy, he puts into reality what he intends to and that sometimes regardless of the consequences. A sense of tact is not necessarily one of Colin Ford's best features. Thereby, he absolutely has ideals. One of them is the fulfilment of obligations. Therefore, you should not criticise him too often and also withhold good advice. He knows everything better anyway.
Colin Ford is able to motivate himself and has the desire to communicate. He is a good talker but tends to emotional coldness. You see him always well-clothed with the desire to making a good impression since he wants acknowledgement, honour and leadership. In his decision-making, Colin Ford decides everything on his own. Being a good communicator, Colin Ford prefers the indirect manner of communication whereas he trusts his intuition and uses flexibility and endurance to become successful.
He detests the fight because he is weak but possesses a great strength of mind. He is able to emotionally influence others but also gets easily influenced by them, and he can be vain and arrogant. Often he seems restless and moody and appreciates mental wealth a lot more than the material wealth. It could also be that friends or close relatives want to use his wealth for themselves.
Colin Ford is a creative thinker and is enthused about anything new. Since he initiates a lot but is not a finisher, he needs someone to encourage him and to support him. Often he seems to be a riddle for others because his ideas and actions are sometimes hard to comprehend. His ambition, energy and intelligence are noteworthy. Problems Colin Ford keeps to himself and he can deal better with the money of others than with his own.
Colin Ford is courageous, says what he thinks and possesses a sense of quality and care towards his family. He deals very consciously with money which can create problems at times.
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 Colin Ford'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 Colin Ford a Yang Water autumn person. Water is strong 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 Colin Ford listed in the respective table cells.
