Wood-Goat - The Year Sign
God: Indirect Wealth
The tightness of the heart does not only protect from harm. Sorrow only attracts misfortune. Loneliness is the fear of the fear.
Xin (Yin Metal): very weak Day Master
Day pillar: Metal-Pig
God: Drastic Output
The Yin-Metal day master is mounted on the Pig. Xander Berkeley's universal energy is Cleansing.
Xander Berkeley is intuitive, empathic and incredibly cordial, talented and possesses an excellent sense of other people. He develops these traits since he likes to be in groups and most of the time must care for a large number of relatives. Out of this reason, he also possesses much sense of responsibility enabling him to care for others. A sense of family joins Xander Berkeley's care. He is warm-hearted, intelligent and does not forget while living the beautiful life that all of that must be earned. He is realistic in his thinking and attempts to plan his future carefully.
Xander Berkeley is level-minded, possesses presence of mind and is productive and proves to be quite sensitive despite all the realistic assessments. He is more ambitious than other Goats because he puts much emphasis on luxury, good food, comfort and romantic atmosphere. To allow himself all of that, Xander Berkeley will work courageously and ambitiously, although not always diligently. He also does not depend on a partner. Xander Berkeley does as he pleases. This love of freedom he assumes in the partner as well. Xander Berkeley is jovial, friendly and cordial whereas he unquestionably possesses the talent to intensely adjust to others.
Xander Berkeley possesses a sense of aesthetics and decoration and is always in danger to be used by others because he does not want to recognise their motives. Being not as stable as he wants to be, Xander Berkeley is compassionate and likes to help others. He does not possess a lot of energy and tends to be defiant and to enter unstable relationships whereas he actually would need a stable partner. Being tender and educated, Xander Berkeley loves the arts, is ambitious and very much interested in the fruits of his success. The relationship to his parents may not be as good.
With the desire to be successful, Xander Berkeley can focus and act emotionally, intuitively and in confidence when pursuing his goals. He listens to his inner voice no matter whether it is right or wrong and is able to motivate others and lead them to success. He tends to be sad whereas justice, truth, ruefulness and yearning define his life. He loves company, is active, future-oriented, direct and honest, sensitive, mentally interested, solid, stable, reliable and honourable but also very much jealous.
Xander Berkeley can be moody and possesses a sharp tongue. Therefore, you have to treat carefully around him. Often he changes his living location and/or the profession. Blows of fate hit him very hard. Actually, Xander Berkeley is a friendly person with good manners and taste who likes to invite friends to his home hosting them well. Xander Berkeley is a reliable worker who does not shy away from too much work.
Xander Berkeley can manage quite well without a herd surrounding him, at least for a while. He is willing to take risks, is open and honest in his views of others but expects the same openness in return. Fortunately, he is less sensitive than other Goats. Travel and the broadening of conscience are crucial to him as well as new views and the acquaintance with interesting people. If Xander Berkeley is truly honest, he needs the mixture of the security of the homely hearth and the alternation of an adventuresome life to be happy.
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 Xander Berkeley'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 Xander Berkeley a Yin Metal winter person. Metal is weak 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 Xander Berkeley listed in the respective table cells.
