Earth Of The Mound
The Yin-Metal day master is mounted on the Ox. Jan Bos' universal energy is Nurturing.
Jan Bos always knows how things work and never lets himself be told what to do. He may not miss his goals thanks to his pronounced intuition, but he is not the perfect partner when it comes to teamwork. Jan Bos could absolutely mutate to an eccentric individualist which would make him the entertaining attraction at social events. Well, it will never be dull in his presence. You may only wonder a bit.
Jan Bos is more cautious than other Tigers. Each undertaking undergoes a long thought process before he decides for or against it whereas most of the time he backs away. Because Jan Bos does not love risks and rather wants to secure his success with daily and diligent work. He is also much more aware of traditions than his sign comrades. For him, new things are not necessarily a value in themselves because they are still untested and have not withstood any practical test.
Jan Bos needs the support and energy from his family and friends. He is ambitious and interested in being successful, and that he will be if he works tirelessly and diligently. When following a goal Jan Bos can be very focused and selfish. Since he is open to any kind of enjoyment, he may enter relationships exceeding his circumstances.
He can be emotional, intuitive and secretive and listens to an inner voice no matter whether it is right or wrong. Although Jan Bos is most of the time calm and patient, he is able to explode. He is a creative individualist and does not let himself get limited. He does not communicate feelings and problems but is able to motivate others and lead them to success. He is apt for sadness, justice and the truth. Ruefulness and yearning define Jan Bos' life.
He likes the company, is active, future-oriented, sensitive, mentally interested, robust and practical, solid, stable, reliable, honourable and sometimes superficial. Blows of fate hit him very hard. He rather trusts proven methods and does not run after the newest trends. If it becomes necessary, Jan Bos is able to transform the traditional to changed circumstances. As a persistent worker who is able to master also difficult tasks, Jan Bos is able to lead with patience and persistence and does not shy away from obstacles since he believes in himself. However, when it comes to love Jan Bos hesitates, although he is emotionally dependent on a partner.
Jan Bos makes high demands to his environment. Incredibly active, emotional and expressive, he pursues his way unyieldingly and mostly successfully, quick-witted and determined. If you step on his tail, which is basically always in the way, you must prepare for anything. A love-relationship with him is overwhelming and risky at the same time.
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 Jan Bos' 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 Jan Bos a Yin Metal autumn person. Metal is prosperous 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 Jan Bos listed in the respective table cells.
