Trust in change. Happiness is with those who do not oppose the flow of life and pursue it with intuition.
Ji (Yang Earth): strong Day Master

God: Correct Seal
Wood Of The Forest
The Yin Earth day master is mounted on the Snake. Terry Gilliam's universal energy is Imperial Glow.
Terry Gilliam is in the balance with himself and possesses a growth supporting source which never fails. That is also the reason why he is so efficient and most of the time reaches what he has decided to do. Terry Gilliam is marked by a passionate sense of justice which he puts equal to the matters of his ego. The fact that separates him from many other dragons. Acknowledgement is mandatory for Terry Gilliam. If he does not receive it, he becomes deadly unhappy. Otherwise, he stands rather on the winning side of life.
Terry Gilliam is very cautious in his decisions. Thoughtful and considerate, he approaches a matter and once he has made a decision he asserts it with continuous effort. If something fails, Terry Gilliam is down for days and often seeks the fault at others first before he admits own failure. Moreover, Terry Gilliam is creative and possesses artistic ambition. An inner balance is crucial for him. Extreme highs and lows, he cannot deal with well since he always looks for a balance in any kind of tension-filled situation.
Terry Gilliam may like farming or gardening, is fair and consistently concerned about others but does not worry about his own life. He can be irresistible, is resilient and stable, not very quick but consequent. Terry Gilliam does not waste time with big ideas but takes care of the real world. Being an excellent organiser and manager, he sometimes is too practical and persistent and forgets that flexibility could be the key to progress.
Terry Gilliam can only poorly tackle two things at the same time. Everything has to be done in sequence and change is only accepted and done if it can be done slowly. Faithful, reliable, trustworthy, persistent, tough, conservative and practical Terry Gilliam expects others to see the world as he does. In secret, he feels superior and sometimes he is even somewhat mystical.
Terry Gilliam is a good listener, has a talent for languages and possesses great intuition making him like to hunt up secrets. The appearance of him is cultured and elegant but not demonstrative, and he can be vain and become arrogant. Terry Gilliam wants to make a decision for everything on his own and goes his own way. Rudeness and confrontation Terry Gilliam does not tolerate. To him, the first impression is imperative, no matter if right or wrong.
Overlooking Terry Gilliam is impossible. Wherever he is, he makes himself seen and that also within a bigger crowd. The world is a cheerful place for him on which he can have fun and where he does not want to hurt anyone. Enjoying the contact to other people and well-read, he is able to contribute to many topics, knows interesting individuals and countries and does also not refuse romantic hours of cuddling. To put Terry Gilliam into chains is even more challenging than with other dragons. It is much more fun to nibble along when he once again falls onto the chocolate sides of life.
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 Terry Gilliam'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 Terry Gilliam a Yin Earth winter person. Earth is trapped in winter.
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 Terry Gilliam listed in the respective table cells.
