The Yang-Earth day master is mounted on the Dog. Craig T. Nelson's universal energy is Grave.
You should address Craig T. Nelson with majestic plural since two royals reside in him. That he combines all qualities making him a leader, should thus, be clear. With intelligence, a sharp eye and assertiveness he fights his way up, sometimes without taking care of losses. Craig T. Nelson is most of the time driven by a great longing for warmth and emotional safety within a family. He will search as long as it takes to find a home. Craig T. Nelson needs much praise and acknowledgement to manage his way up. This kind of emotional support is his strongest motivation to continue.
Level-headedness is the essential criteria making the Craig T. Nelson. He always stays on the ground of facts and thinks consequently clear and objective. He is also eloquent and humorous whereas he never oversteps the borders of decency. His fellow men feel attracted to this polite and attentive listener who has an open ear for every problem. Craig T. Nelson is very faithful and affectionate and stands loyally by his partner. This aspect supports his inherited sense of family and makes him a reliable and caring family member. Occasionally he has difficulties with his lack of decidedness. Craig T. Nelson often thinks back and forth until he has found a decision, if at all.
Craig T. Nelson 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. Craig T. Nelson 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.
Craig T. Nelson 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, Craig T. Nelson 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.
Craig T. Nelson 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 Craig T. Nelson is imbalanced inwardly. Closeness and tenderness quickly become too much for him because he desires to be independent.
Craig T. Nelson is more militant than other monkey whereas this is less about prestige and the gain of power but more about not missing any fun and pleasure. As soon as a matter becomes tedious to him, he turns to another one. Intrigues are not his thing. He prefers the direct, if fierce argument. Craig T. Nelson's matchless energy and curiosity enables him, to become successful in many fields. If you expect peaceful continuity from him, you will wait forever.
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 stems and the branches of Craig T. Nelson'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 Craig T. Nelson a Yang Earth spring person. In spring Earth is dead.
However, the day master's element strength can differ from the element's season strength because they interact and, depending on the season, further, control or harm each other.
To show those element interactions, there are the so-called 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). You find those in the respective table cells for Craig T. Nelson.
The BAZI is all about balance. Too strong elements or too weak ones should be balanced.
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.
The Year Pillar shows the relationship with family and society at large.
The Month Pillar represents the childhood and how you relate with parents.
The Day Pillar provides information on your relationship with your spouse or partner - whereas the Day Stem (the upper sign) is considered your "Self-Element" as it represents you within the chart.
The Hour Pillar refers to career and/or the relationship with children.
