Water-Ox - The Year Sign
God: Indirect Power
The dark path leads into the impassable deep. Idle waiting cuts you off from the source of your liveliness.
Yi (Yin Wood): strong Day Master
Day pillar: Wood-Pig
God: Correct Seal
Beacon On The Mountain
The Yin-wood day master is mounted on the Pig. Ioan Gruffudd's universal energy is Death.
Ioan Gruffudd protects and mothered and he is happy when he has found a person needing him. While he furrows day in and day out without missing the presence of another human being, he also seeks warmth and emotional safety with others. Since Ioan Gruffudd possesses a balanced nature, he also quickly finds such people. He could be a great pedagogue because he intuitively knows how to deal with problems and difficulties of little children.
To live and let live, could be Ioan Gruffudd's motto. With his tolerance and high assertiveness, he quickly advances to the leader of a group. You cannot deny that he feels incredibly well with this role. As an Ox, he possesses an unusual degree of joie de vivre. He prefers the three-star-restaurant over the cheap stew by far. Ioan Gruffudd does not want to be just fed, he wants to enjoy.
Ioan Gruffudd is very creative and easy to enthuse but quickly loses interest. He needs motivation and often possesses only little will power. He has impeccable manners and good taste. Inner feelings can only be expressed poorly. Therefore, Ioan Gruffudd only has a few close friends and often does not feel at par. Pressure he is able to withstand without problems.
He keeps his problems to himself and is honest, trustworthy, loyal and generous, curious, inquisitive, practical and objective. Ioan Gruffudd desires to own a luxurious home to which he would like to invite friends.
Sadly he is taken advantage of because he cannot see the motives of others. Ioan Gruffudd is a good worker and is not shying away from hard work. In relationships, he might create many problems because he lacks patience. If at all he should only marry late in life.
Ioan Gruffudd is actually a loveable human being, devoted and loyal, patient, diplomatic and intelligent, although a tad slow in his decision he carefully thinks over. However, you should never forget that he too, possesses horns.
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 Ioan Gruffudd'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 Ioan Gruffudd 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 Ioan Gruffudd listed in the respective table cells.
