Tom Atkins consistently demands new, sensational impressions and develops little sense of thoughtful introspection or silent contemplation. Volatile, he always grasps at new stars and has a hard time to finish a thing. Thereby, Tom Atkins acts very emotive, cordial and helpful when it is necessary. Problems he may want to overcome with a change of location whereas Tom Atkins forgets that the reason for all the difficulties, namely he, comes along no matter where he goes. Yet, to stay somewhere where trouble is brewing is just impossible for him. When something does not run according to plan, Tom Atkins openly shows his frustration. That happens more often because he always goes the full Monty and takes every risk.
Although Tom Atkins reacts extremely sensitive when he gets hurt, he is mostly balanced and in harmony with himself in the daily routine. Partly, that is because he knows how to skillfully avoid conflict. Due to his strong attraction, Tom Atkins is able to provide many impulses to his fellow men and has a performance enhancing impact on them as well. However, Tom Atkins also depends on constant praise and acknowledgement. His favourite place in life is just the centre of attention and if you contest this position, he can react rather offended. But mostly, he gathers with his radiating and winning demeanour so many admirers around him, it does not come to that.
Tom Atkins is popular and humorous. He tackles tasks, is charismatic, self-driven, passionate and within limits adventurous and often makes decisions without having looked, listened and thought which subsequently leads to problems. New trends and fashion are exciting for him, and he would love to always stand in the centre of attention. Tom Atkins can be vain and arrogant and possesses a false self-confidence.
Tom Atkins wants acknowledgement and leadership and is brave, lavish, lively, passionate, intelligent, enthusiastic and exciting. With his sharp mind, Tom Atkins is mentally agile and communicative. He loves to travel, is active and dynamic. Sadly he has a big problem in finishing tasks because he lacks staying powers.
Sometimes Tom Atkins is aimless and fritters. Secretly he feels superior but is also able to understandingly listen with an enormous talent for languages. With his great intuition, Tom Atkins likes to uncover secrets whereas he uses indirect methods and hides in the background. His appearance is neat and elegant. Roughness and confrontation are hated by him and if he is motivated, he is able to work very hard.
His feelings are important to Tom Atkins and the first impression of others is often deciding no matter whether right or wrong. Tom Atkins can be irresistible.
Tom Atkins is a Rat in its element. He is a true master of fostering social relationships and far-spread friendships. Thus, loneliness is a foreign word for him. Also in love, he is mostly successful.
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 Tom Atkins' 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 Tom Atkins a Yin Fire summer person. Fire is prosperous in summer.
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 Tom Atkins listed in the respective table cells.
