Earth-Rabbit - The Year Sign
God: Indirect Power
The waste of your energy nourishes unknown enemies. Uninhibited acting achieves only seemingly satisfaction.
Ren (Yang Water): very weak Day Master
Day pillar: Water-Dog
God: Indirect Power
Water Of The Ocean
The Yang-Water day master is mounted on the Dog. Ian McKellen's universal energy is Hat & Belt.
Ian McKellen's mood often depends on his fellow men because his sensitive nature instantly senses the smallest shifts in the behaviour of others making him react quickly. On the other hand, Ian McKellen is quite volatile and has difficulties to remain at one thing concentrated.
The problem lies thus, in a lack of stability. Moreover, being condemned to be alone are other times which are problematic for Ian McKellen. He needs the feeling to be a part of something and the warmth of human company. He may have a large arsenal of dreams at his disposal, but Ian McKellen depends on the exchange and information with others.
Ian McKellen is anything else than egoistic because his entire being is attuned to the group. Nothing goes more against that than someone not orientating on its standards. In the eyes of others, he sometimes makes the impression to be somewhat narrow-minded in his attitude, particularly as he prefers traditional values over revolutionary renewals. Yet, Ian McKellen's primary intention is to maintain the tried and trusted for the welfare of all. Ian McKellen always prefers solitude over the hustle and bustle of life and his security is more important than any kind of excitement which throws the order overboard.
Ian McKellen possesses two sides. He can either be powerful or also be calm and tender. He is hard to look through, communicates well and prefers the indirect manner of communication. Ian McKellen trusts his intuition and uses flexibility and endurance to be successful and to achieve fame and honour.
Ian McKellen can influence others emotionally but also gets equally influenced by others. Often he is restless and moody thinks a lot about anything and gains in-depth knowledge in the process. He is complete in his presence and is reliable, brave, liable and faithful. Ian McKellen always needs a little bit time for himself to work through his feelings. In business he quickly recognises the real motives of any interlocutor. Ian McKellen does not like parties and prefers to stay at home.
As an imaginative, sensitive lover, Ian McKellen is not very homely but never says no to an inspiring discussion. In the profession, he asserts very well with his soft but convincing nature whereas he just circumvents the strategies of his powerful opponents.
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 Ian McKellen'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 Ian McKellen a Yang Water summer person. Water is trapped in summer.
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 Ian McKellen listed in the respective table cells.
