Earth-Dog - The strong Day Master
Wood Of The Plains
The Yang-Earth day master is mounted on the Dog. Shannyn Sossamon's universal energy is Grave.
Shannyn Sossamon is rather introvert and likes to spend her time indoors. Being apt to keep money or save it, she worries about others but nearly never about herself. A tad slower than other people, she is but the more constant and consequent. Shannyn Sossamon does not waste time with big plans but takes care of the real world. An excellent organiser and manager, she concentrates on practicability whereas she is persistent in realisation.
Shannyn Sossamon lacks flexibility and is not able to handle several things at the same time and needs to organise everything one step after the other. Not emotional but sensitive, Shannyn Sossamon demands agreement from others. Change is easily managed by her if she acts slowly and not rashly. She is fair, faithful, reliable, persistent, robust, conservative, practical, brave, friendly, and hospitable and engaged in her profession.
Shannyn Sossamon may like to collect things and in business she quickly recognises the motives of any interlocutor. Not liking big parties, she prefers a small circle of people. Sometimes Shannyn Sossamon is imbalanced inwardly. Closeness and tenderness quickly become too much for her because she desires to be independent.
Shannyn Sossamon is rather an untypical representative of the Horse-born. Her most notable feature is undecidedness. She could famish between two equally large hay piles. Her most significant goal is the perfect marriage. For this, she lets go many things and tackles it meticulously and carefully. It is crucial for her to do the right thing. The joy of life and spontaneity may thus fall to the wayside.
Shannyn Sossamon possesses a definite sense of justice and always engages in the welfare of all. This aspect increases the sense of responsibility for the surroundings in this horse. Shannyn Sossamon always has a secure demeanour as soon as she is in public. She does not know difficulties to talk if she stands by a just matter with fiery enthusiasm making herself the advocate of the small and suppressed. Shannyn Sossamon would make a great lawyer since she combines a sense of justice, oracy and accuracy. This security is also valid for private appearances. Shannyn Sossamon possesses great charm, a good portion of humour and makes a great impression mostly on the other sex.
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.
|Heavenly Stem||—||Yang Earth||Yin Metal||Yang Earth||Yin Fire|
|Hidden Dominating||Yang Earth||Yin Fire||Yang Fire|
|Hidden Remaining||—||Yin Metal||—||Yin Earth||Yang Earth|
|Treasure Chest||—||Yin Fire||—||—||Yang Metal|
As you see, I do not have Shannyn Sossamon's birth time, which makes the element analysis incomplete and unclear. Thus, the real strength for each of the elements cannot finally be calculated.
