Water-Horse - The Year Sign
Courageous progressing clears the path. To speak up without being selfish leads to the true self. The path becomes free.
Metal-Rat - The weak Day Master
Earth Of The Mound
The Yang-Metal day master is mounted on the Rat. David Bradley's universal energy is Death.
David Bradley possesses a lot of energy, is impatient and ambitious and usually creates his own problems while maintaining a high drive to become successful. While following goals he can be very focused and selfish. Acting aggressively, emotionally, intuitively and secretively, he listens to an inner voice no matter whether it is right or wrong. Feelings and problems are not communicated, but David Bradley is able to motivate others and lead them to success.
David Bradley has a tendency to be sad. Justice, truth, ruefulness and yearning define his life. He loves company, is active, future-oriented, sensitive and mentally interested. Blows of fate hit him hard. He is solid, not very chargeable, reliable, honourable and sometimes even superficial.
David Bradley's creativity and excitement for new trends are not instantly recognisable and he is sometimes perceived as a riddle since his ideas and motives are not comprehended by others. David Bradley is generous and intelligent but can also be tactless and startling without him wanting to be.
David Bradley possesses enormous strength. All of his features seem to be equally increased. He can instantly perceive a situation and decide what path to go. This decision David Bradley wants to assert with all might, if necessary even with force because he also embodies power and sovereignty and tends to be egocentric. Generally, David Bradley possesses a happy inclined nature which is no wonder because he manages to achieve nearly anything. If he should have bad luck occasionally, he does not take it to heart. With great optimism, drive and enthusiasm David Bradley departs instantly to new deeds.
David Bradley possesses artistic talent and is much concerned with literature, painting and music. On an interpersonal level, he is particularly gifted and takes on a centre position in his large circle of acquaintances. David Bradley is less risk-taking and lets reason prevail at times. Enthusiasm combines with reason and a bit of caution which can be unpleasant at times. But most of the time David Bradley's loving demeanour proves his internal balance.
David Bradley belongs to the wilder, more untameable of the horse-born. With loudly hammering hoofs, he gallops along, breaks a few hearts in passing and is off again towards new destinations. Generally, he does not accept advice, and since he fears to lose, he is under some kind of constant stress. However, since he is a buoyant person, he is very much liked by others.
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||—||Yang Metal||Yang Wood||Yang Water||Yang Water|
|Hidden Dominating||Yin Water||Yang Earth||Yin Fire||Yin Water|
|Hidden Remaining||—||Yin Wood||Yin Earth||—|
|Treasure Chest||—||—||Yin Water||—||—|
As you see, I do not have David Bradley's birth time, which makes the element analysis incomplete and unclear. Thus, the real strength for each of the elements cannot finally be calculated.
