The Yin-Earth day master is mounted on the Rooster. James Cosmo's universal energy is Growth & Flourish.
James Cosmo consistently demands new, sensational impressions and develops little sense of thoughtful introspection or silent contemplation. Volatile, he always grasps at new stars and has a hard time to finish a thing. Thereby, James Cosmo acts very emotive, cordial and helpful when it is necessary. Problems he may want to overcome with a change of location whereas James Cosmo forgets that the reason for all the difficulties, namely he, comes along no matter where he goes. Yet, to stay somewhere where trouble is brewing is just impossible for him. When something does not run according to plan, James Cosmo openly shows his frustration. That happens more often because he always goes the full Monty and takes every risk.
James Cosmo is marked by a radiant, brilliant appearance but who is not as balanced internally as it seems to the outside world. He tends to make fantastic plans that turn out to be duds in the end while at the same time he devotedly attempts to build up the foundation for a secure livelihood. When James Cosmo manages to overcome his internal contradictions, he won't belie his radiant appearance. As highly skilled mediator, as a steady personality, James Cosmo will gain the full respect of his fellow men and take on a special position amongst them.
James Cosmo possesses a moderate temper, is honourable, tolerant and intelligent and has artistic abilities at his disposal and a quick mental ability. He is popular and because he is passionate, James Cosmo is apt for a quick career to a high position. He may love farming and gardening and tends to worry about others but not about himself. Being slower than other people, James Cosmo is, on the other hand, constant and consequent.
Not wasting time with big plans he takes care of the real world, is a good manager and organiser and you can trust him. His focus lies on practicability, although he is not flexible and not able to do several things at the same time. James Cosmo is not emotional but sensitive and expects agreement, but once he has accepted a person, he becomes a good friend who is always available if help is needed. However, abrupt change disturb James Cosmo very much but he is able to manage it when done slowly.
James Cosmo can be incredibly stubborn, reliable, steadfast, faithful, persistent, robust, traditional, conservative and practical and likes to collect. When it comes to the art, James Cosmo is a bit feminine but character-wise firm and decided. He is brave and socially engaged. His business sense is concentrated on the fine arts with which he could gain wealth. Being an excellent observer, James Cosmo is unbiased and meticulous in anything he does. He possesses a good eye for details, is a good host and partner and understands to enjoy all of the life's beautiful and delicious facets.
James Cosmo is a Rat in its element. He is a true master of fostering social relationships and far-spread friendships. Thus, loneliness is a foreign word for him. Also in love, he is mostly successful.
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 James Cosmo'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 James Cosmo a Yin Earth summer person. Earth is strong 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 James Cosmo listed in the respective table cells.
