Wood-Snake - The Year Sign
God: Drastic Output
The cunning to lead others astray leads you onto dark paths. To act without deceiving maintains purity.
Geng (Yang Metal): very weak Day Master
Day pillar: Metal-Dragon
God: Slanted Seal
Metal In Wax
The Yang-Metal day master is mounted on the Dragon. Mads Mikkelsen's universal energy is Nurturing.
Mads Mikkelsen 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, Mads Mikkelsen 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.
Mads Mikkelsen is extremely delicate and vulnerable. Often, it cost him much effort to open up in front of others, particularly because he believes to lose an advantage by doing so. He must work hard on this personality aspect and attempt to put a light on his hidden motives. Basically, there are not much people who are such empathic and skilled in perception as Mads Mikkelsen. He possesses the opportunity to get to the most profound insights with which he can help others.
Mads Mikkelsen possesses a high opinion of himself and makes decisions on his own without asking others. He wants to be in attendance everywhere. Often he has to adapt because he is less pressure resistant than he wants to be. Mads Mikkelsen needs the support and energy from the family and his friends. He sounds well, is a sweet-talker and sometimes promises too much.
Sometimes Mads Mikkelsen tends to be melancholic. He possesses a high drive and wants to put projects into reality. However, he should not undertake anything exceeding his circumstances. If problems arise, Mads Mikkelsen listens to his inner voice but his inner feelings he does not show. Mads Mikkelsen is just and loves the truth and sometimes is sad without reason. Full of ambition, he and wants to be successful and enjoys the fruits of his success.
Extrovert, he is quickly tempted by speculation or gambling. Mads Mikkelsen's life is either desire or tragedy whereas he savours both. He loves to act and likes the society and a big audience. He is appreciated because of his courage, charm, his generosity and intelligence. However, Mads Mikkelsen is not a splendid listener. With a bit more flexibility and tolerance he could become wealthy.
Mads Mikkelsen walks life with a very unique flair. He leaves numerous broken hearts behind, considers life as one single competition and makes life unnecessarily hard for himself. Since he sees himself quite critically as well and has no problems to admit own mistakes, he will advance professionally. As said, a very unique flair, the constant fighter whom you cannot have a grudge with.
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 Mads Mikkelsen'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 Mads Mikkelsen a Yang Metal winter person. In winter Metal is weak.
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 Mads Mikkelsen.
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.
