The Yin-wood day master is mounted on the Snake. Sam Elliot's universal energy is Cleansing.
Sam Elliot needs the feeling to be powerful and thus, must decide all things alone. To influence him makes no sense. He reacts quite emotionally when he likes someone. He probably gives his last shirt and gets, without noticing, shamelessly used. All in all, Sam Elliot is a highly-evolved personality and is very clever in his views and judgements. Confident, secure and convinced he will make it, he walks through life. A definite sense of family Sam Elliot possesses as well, and he loves his children above anything. Those are also the ones he accepts readily to act up with him.
Objectively and considerate, Sam Elliot acts and with his unique charm he knows how to assert. He is particularly sensitive and moves elegantly. Sam Elliot knows most of the time very well what he wants. He may act somewhat slower, but he securely moves towards his goals. Tactical skill but also a significant portion of Maxim play hereby a big part. Unbeatable, however, is Sam Elliot's fantastic humour which enables him to pursue his goals not as ambitiously but also with self-irony.
Sam Elliot is not a stable individual. He is impressionable, tends to defiance and enters labile relationships. On the other hand, he is extrovert, sociable, performance driven and active. He is a good host and entertainer, loves children and nature and is better at realising the ideas of others than his own. Sam Elliot goes a silent and unspectacular way but is able to point the way ahead. He is also very sensitive and vulnerable. In secret, he feels superior.
Being an understanding listener, Sam Elliot has a talent for languages and possesses a lot of intuition. He loves to uncover secrets whereas he uses indirect methods staying in the background. Sam Elliot's outer appearance is elegant and neat. When he is motivated, Sam Elliot becomes a hard worker. The first impression rules even if opinions or logic speaks against it. Sam Elliot is curious, inquisitive and adventurous, practical, factual and full of ideas.
Sam Elliot likes to be the centre of attention. He possesses an infectious humour, loves to entertain others and is well versed with witty remarks and amusing reports of his adventures. There is only one thing, he cannot stand. Disregard by others. Then, he becomes moody and irritable. Sam Elliot is direct and seeks the competition and in professions at which education and flexibility is required to attune to always new challenges, he blossoms. In a love relationship, he becomes a devoted, profound lover who is only allergic against stupidity.
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 Sam Elliot'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 Sam Elliot a Yin Wood autumn person. In autumn Wood is dead.
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 Sam Elliot.
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.
