Courageous progressing clears the path. To speak up without being selfish leads to the true self. The path becomes free.
Yi (Yin Wood): very weak Day Master
Day pillar: Wood-Rooster
God: Indirect Power
Water Of The River Head
The Yin-wood day master is mounted on the Rooster. Ian McShane's universal energy is Totally Vanished.
Ian McShane possesses a definite sense of justice and always engages in the welfare of all. This aspect increases the sense of responsibility for the surroundings in this horse. Ian McShane always has a secure demeanour as soon as he is in public. He does not know difficulties to talk if he stands by a just matter with fiery enthusiasm making himself the advocate of the small and suppressed. Ian McShane would make a great lawyer since he combines a sense of justice, oracy and accuracy. This security is also valid for private appearances. Ian McShane possesses great charm, a good portion of humour and makes a great impression mostly on the other sex.
Ian McShane is a tad vain and loves to bathe in the praise and acknowledgement of his fellow men. Yet, it does not take away from his lovingness, particularly as he is always perceptive to the concerns of others. A bit problematic, however, is his inner life. Sometimes, he feels drawn between daring enthusiasm and the urge to create stable circumstances. At times, Ian McShane works by a large pedantry seeking its own, at other times he throws himself into projects without future. Ian McShane is much more committed than other horses and feels attached to single family members with loving care. He does not exclusively demand his personal freedom.
Ian McShane is a feminine and emotional but very brave person. He possesses much sense of details and is able to do well with all works demanding precision and could be very successful with trading arts. The Indirect Power personality pattern is favourable here because it makes Ian McShane intelligent and intuitive. He is a true friend.
When you meet him, he seems unimposing at first but only later shows his true greatness and becomes extrovert and sociable, performance driven and active. Always, he assesses matters from new perspectives, which could lead to problems. If Ian McShane does not spread himself too thin and thinks things through, he can become quite successful.
It is easier for him to put ideas of others into reality than his own and deals superbly well with pressure and stress. Curious, inquisitive and venturesome, practical and objective, creative and full of ideas, Ian McShane loves children and nature and is a splendid host and entertainer.
Ian McShane is rather an untypical representative of the Horse-born. His most notable feature is undecidedness. He could famish between two equally large hay piles. His most significant goal is the perfect marriage. For this, he lets go many things and tackles it meticulously and carefully. It is crucial for him to do the right thing. The joy of life and spontaneity may thus fall to the wayside.
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 McShane'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 McShane a Yin Wood autumn person. Wood is dead 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).
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 McShane listed in the respective table cells.
