Wood-Rat - The Year Sign
God: Correct Seal
In the temple of your heart lives the wisdom. Endurance is the key to the gate into the sanctuary of your inner knowledge.
Ji (Yang Earth): strong Day Master
Day pillar: Earth-Ox
God: Indirect Power
The Yin-Earth day master is mounted on the Ox. Jackson Rathbone's universal energy is Grave.
Jackson Rathbone is kind-hearted and charming but also goal-oriented and ambitious. Full of energy, he puts into reality what he intends to and that sometimes regardless of the consequences. A sense of tact is not necessarily one of Jackson Rathbone's best features. Thereby, he absolutely has ideals. One of them is the fulfilment of obligations. Therefore, you should not criticise him too often and also withhold good advice. He knows everything better anyway.
Jackson Rathbone makes an exceptional steerer because with his ambition and goal-orientation he plans thoroughly and provides his life with a stable foundation. However, often he loses the fight for success if he does not develop a real sense of the questions of right style. Integrity is a notable feature of him. Nonetheless, Jackson Rathbone sometimes tends to be somewhat cumbersome. Jackson Rathbone is very faithful and very much considers the welfare of his relatives.
Jackson Rathbone tends to worry about others but not about himself and is slower than other people but the more stable and consequent. He does not waste time with big plans but deals with the real world. He is an excellent manager and organiser.
Jackson Rathbone could possess a peevish nature and easily explode but also quickly calm down. You can trust him. His focus lies on practicability because he is not flexible and cannot do several things at the same time. He is not emotional but sensitive and expects agreement. Sudden change disturbs him whereas slow change is managed quite well.
He is reliable, steadfast, faithful, persistent, robust, traditional, conservative and practical and likes to collect. As a continuing worker Jackson Rathbone prefers tested methods and brings projects ahead with his patience and persistence. He believes in himself and is most of the time introvert. He likes to be indoors.
Jackson Rathbone embodies the tendencies of the Rat for idealism and experiments. Sitting still is a huge problem for him. Thus, he should work in a diversified profession without long commitment. Sometimes, he promises more than he can keep and not always he finishes what he intends to.
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 Jackson Rathbone'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 Jackson Rathbone a Yin Earth winter person. Earth is trapped in winter.
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 Jackson Rathbone listed in the respective table cells.
