John Malkovich possesses inexhaustible resources of ideas and plans. Due to his strong attractiveness, he also provides many impulses to his fellow men and has a performance motivating impact on them. However, he always depends on praise and acknowledgement to actually advance. Yet, most of the time, John Malkovich possesses such a winning demeanour that one looks admiringly up to him and likes to be in his company. Since John Malkovich tends to be somewhat jealous, he must deal with those feelings from time to time. Envy and competitive thinking too can become a problem for him since John Malkovich is extremely performance-driven and ambitious.
John Malkovich does not appreciate challenges. He is rather a person of the moment, of the presence and loves the sensual joys. Often, he forgets that after today follows tomorrow and can be quite broke financially. Contrary to other Snakes he does not need the security and does not put a higher value on material goods. Occasionally, John Malkovich attempts to suddenly save money and calculate like a maniac. Thus, there is a constant back and forth between two very contradicting sides of his personality.
John Malkovich oozes sex appeal, is attractive and funny and is convinced of his natural supremacy. Often, he exudes confident authority while dominating his surroundings. Nonetheless, he often feels disadvantaged. He does not possess personal leadership, is insecure and distrustful. He does not easily see his way and communicates unclearly so that doubts are created. Knowing about new trends, he wants to be the first to learn about them and convey them to others.
John Malkovich is able to make quick decisions and acts without any discussion which could lead to problems. He can be very creative, is sociable, can express himself very well, is extrovert and loves performance and activity, but is not able to communicate his inner feelings well. Therefore, he only has a few close friends and often does not feel at par. John Malkovich keeps problems to himself, is honest, trustworthy, loyal and generous.
Pressure is easily withstood and John Malkovich is curious, inquisitive, adventurous, good at business, practical and objective. As a creative thinker, John Malkovich is fascinated by anything new and he solves many problems. He is able to initiate a lot but is not a finisher which is his weakness. John Malkovich needs someone providing him with courage and sustaining him. John Malkovich is very vital but does not possess a lot of physical power.
John Malkovich is open-minded and optimistic and acts responsibly and honourably towards others. If he had not had such a broad horizon, he would be endangered to be seen as self-righteous. Compared to other Snakes, John Malkovich does not take much care about a perfect outfit. That makes him approachable for others, and since he is considered to be worldly-wise due to his journeys, others seek John Malkovich's advice.
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 stems and the branches of John Malkovich'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 Malkovich a Yang Wood winter person. In winter Wood is strong.
However, the day master's element strength can differ from the element's season strength because they interact and, depending on the season, further, control or harm each other.
To show those element interactions, there are the so-called 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). You find those in the respective table cells for John Malkovich.
The BAZI is all about balance. Too strong elements or too weak ones should be balanced.
The elements and respective signs by the teachings of Bazi Suan Ming give a more complete analysis of a person than the normally known only chinese year sign. In Bazi Suan Ming ("Four Pillars of Destiny = eight signs") the day sign is the one that represents the me, and thus the key personality of a person. Of course the interaction between the elements and signs play also a significant role. Going into the depth of how to calculate those elements and how they interact with each other would go a step too far on this page. Only a person can be defined by his or her 8 elements which are represented by four heavenly stems and four earth branches. The earth branches consist of one of the animal signs which in themselves also represent an element.
Each element (each phase) in the chart represents a specific person and your path in life. An optimal balanced element chart features each of the elements in the same strength, which of course, is seldomly the case. The interaction of the heavenly stems among each other as well as with the earth branches can create more elements.
The Year Pillar shows the relationship with family and society at large.
The Month Pillar represents the childhood and how you relate with parents.
The Day Pillar provides information on your relationship with your spouse or partner - whereas the Day Stem (the upper sign) is considered your "Self-Element" as it represents you within the chart.
The Hour Pillar refers to career and/or the relationship with children.
