Metal In Sediment
The Yin-wood day master is mounted on the Goat. John Bell's universal energy is Nurturing.
John Bell 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 John Bell 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.
John Bell is more or less liberated from the Ox's phlegm with a warm and pleasant demeanour in the contact with other people. He is a hot-wire to the people. With his cheeky nose he looks for a friendly place amongst them and thus, creates comfort that his commonly heavy and thorough nature would repel. Besides, John Bell is incredibly trusting. He assumes only the best in all people. Mistrust is not his thing. He could never imagine that a human being has hostile or evil thoughts.
John Bell needs strong support from his family or friends and is very sensitive, prone to pleasures and enters relationships exceeding his circumstances. On the other hand, he is extrovert, sociable, performance driven, active, feminine, caring, beautiful and seductive, humble and patient. John Bell is a good host and entertainer. Moreover, he is curious, inquisitive and adventurous, practical, factual and full of ideas. John Bell becomes successful if he works continuously and diligently. Success could, however, make him arrogant.
John Bell loves children and nature and is able to realise other people's ideas better than his own. He is very much interested in the arts, music and literature and loves a pleasant family atmosphere whereas he nearly does anything to achieve it. He makes an excellent cook, always wants to look good and make a good impression, all of which make him feels more secure.
His insecurity which results from a missing inner leadership is his weakness. John Bell does not easily see his way and therefore, sometimes, is misled. His communication is also quite unclear.
John Bell 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 John Bell'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 John Bell 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 John Bell listed in the respective table cells.
