Fire-Ox - The Year Sign
God: Gracious Output
The dark path leads into the impassable deep. Idle waiting cuts you off from the source of your liveliness.
Ding (Yin Fire): very weak Day Master
Day pillar: Fire-Rabbit
God: Slanted Seal
Fire In The Oven
The Yin Fire day master is mounted on the Rabbit. Dustin Hoffman's universal energy is Illness.
Dustin Hoffman is quite the flexible Ox which liberates him from his heavy yoke that would usually bind him to the daily routine. From time to time, he soars to surpass other people. Dustin Hoffman possesses a clear sense of family. However, that shows more in intimacy and the search for physical closeness than the concern of material wealth. Moreover, he is always on the quest for inspiration and better information to keep his mind flexible. Dustin Hoffman benefits extremely from this intellectual bustle because his thoughts usually revolve around practical things.
Dustin Hoffman is warm, emotionally secure and stable with only a little charisma. His body is weak, and his self-confidence is low. He wants to be the centre of attention and self-realise himself. He is humorous and loved by others. Dustin Hoffman prefers discipline, is compassionate and radiates a gentle calmness.
Therefore, Dustin Hoffman is a family oriented individual, helping the disadvantaged and the ones in need. he is able to very well mend any relationship and loves the truth and hates lies. He loves a comfortable home to which he likes to invite guests. Change is not his strength. Before Dustin Hoffman changes anything, he carefully considers the pros and cons.
In a relationship, Dustin Hoffman gives more than he has to give. He hates discussion and arguing. Granted help and support he rewards with love and devotion.
Dustin Hoffman seems to be a contradiction in himself. Pride, egotism and the desire to rule for the benefit of all pairs up with a powerful dominance to a homely despot who only means well. Fortunately, he possesses much sense of fun as long as it is not at his cost.
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 Dustin Hoffman'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 Dustin Hoffman a Yin Fire autumn person. Fire is trapped 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).
