The Yin-Fire day master is mounted on the Rooster. Doug MacLeod's universal energy is Growth & Flourish.
Doug MacLeod always surprises his fellow men because he radiates a fascinating mixture of passion, heat, elegance and reservedness.

Doug MacLeod likes the contact more than other snakes and does not shy away from standing by his opinions even if those might cause unpleasant situations. Moreover, he possesses a high drive for freedom and wants to be independent from his surroundings.
Doug MacLeod is predestined for a profession in the pedagogic field. Advisor or politician suits him as well. Because his intuitive abilities paired with a great gift for languages, provide his appearance with absolute cogency. Just his patience is not well developed. If a matter turns out to be problematic while working on it, Doug MacLeod likes to drop everything. However, if his goals are defined, and the first successes have been achieved, Doug MacLeod can work hard and entirely concentrate on the task at hand.
Doug MacLeod is honourable, tolerant, intelligent, humorous and beloved. He possesses artistic abilities, is charismatic, self-motivated, passionate and sometimes adventurous.

Always on the look for the new, trends and fashion are a big interest to him and he desires to be the centre of attention.
Doug MacLeod plays his cards close to his chest and doesn't show his feelings. He can be distrustful, lavish, lively, hot-blooded, passionate and quick-tempered, easy to excite and causing excitement. Possessing a sharp mind, Doug MacLeod is artistic with a feminine touch but with proper firmness and determination. He could be lucky with the arts and earn his money with it.
Being an excellent observer, he is unbiased and meticulous in all he does. He has an eye for details, is a good host and entertainer. Once Doug MacLeod has accepted someone, he becomes a good friend who helps out in all situations, but he could also quickly put an immediate end to it.
Doug MacLeod enjoys so much making new encounters and friends that he does not care about how he is perceived by others. Without being aware, Doug MacLeod possesses an unmistakable sense of style which often shows in such an individualistic form that it can only be called eccentric. With closeness and distance to other people, Doug MacLeod has a particular problem. He seeks the collaboration of a group but always remains somewhat outside so he may have a hard time to meet the right partner for life.
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 Doug MacLeod'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 Doug MacLeod a Yin Fire spring person. In spring Fire is strong.
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 Doug MacLeod.
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.
