The Yin-wood day master is mounted on the Rabbit. Tom Braidwood's universal energy is Proposal Of Luck.
Trustfulness paired with an enormous portion of charm is the essential trait of Tom Braidwood. He loves the togetherness with people and always creates a friendly and open atmosphere. Only when he dislikes someone entirely, he gives no pardon. Tom Braidwood can be then rather repellent. Most of the time, he knows at the first gaze who he likes and who not. Also in the profession, he cannot collaborate with somebody he does not like. Sympathy is for Tom Braidwood in every area mandatory. All that represents the balance of powers he likes. As a result, he does not appreciate change.
Tom Braidwood combines a sense of responsibility with extraordinary empathy, is thoughtful, sensitive, shy but enormously productive. Emotional safety, the security of the family in the own home or within the community is mandatory to him. Only here, Tom Braidwood finds the necessary protection he needs to develop his abilities. Sometimes, Tom Braidwood's empathy prevents him from climbing the career ladder as goal-oriented as other rat-born.
Tom Braidwood is diplomatic, compassionate and calm and makes a role family model helping the disadvantaged and disabled. Gentle, moderate and intelligent, he possesses a high morally attitude. He may strive for fame and leadership but is better able to realise the ideas of others than his own. He also makes an excellent negotiator and is creative. He is companionable, express himself well, is extroverted and loves performance and activity. Feelings Tom Braidwood reveals poorly. Therefore, he has only a few close friends and often feels not at par.
Tom Braidwood values honesty and hates lies. In relationships, he is a good friend, yet there might be problems in the first relationships. Loving a comfortable home, he loves to host guests. Tom Braidwood hates conflict and arguing but can withstand pressure well. He is always active and restless and acts quickly and sometimes not goal-oriented and without reason. He keeps problems to himself, is honest, trustworthy, loyal and generous. Tom Braidwood is curious, inquisitive, adventurous, a good business person, practical and factual.
Tom Braidwood is able to solve many problems and initiates much but only finishes little which is his weakness. He needs someone encouraging him and keeping him at the task. If change becomes necessary, Tom Braidwood considers everything very carefully before he makes a decision. Help he rewards with love and devotion.
Tom Braidwood is by far not as balanced as it would seem but he is a tender master of persuasiveness, loves luxury and possesses an exceptional desire for intimate closeness. All that makes him an idolised being many would love to have as a partner.
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 Braidwood'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 Tom Braidwood a Yin Wood autumn person. Wood is dead in autumn.
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 Braidwood listed in the respective table cells.
