    Default Your Element.

    Believe it or not, the Chinese Horoscope that you've learned as a little kid is only the tip of the iceberg. You essentially have 4 animals and 4 elements to go with YOU.

    One animal represents the year of birth (what most people are familiar with)

    One animal represents the month

    One animal represents the day

    And the last animal represents the hour.

    All in all, there is too much information to post, so if you wanted to extract more information, be my guest and look online ^^.
    ---

    Within these 4 "pillars," the element that corresponds to your day is the most important. Known simply as the day master, this element tells you your interaction with pretty much everyone.

    If your element is in conflict with the elements and animals in the Month, Year, and Hour pillar, it means there is quite a lot of conflict of some sort. This defines whether you have a weak element(the elements run against your element) or a strong element (those elements support your element.) Too strong of an element or too weak of an element is a bad thing.

    ---

    Too much to read? This test is all for fun. Don't need to take it seriously.

    Scroll to the VERY bottom of this site. Input your date of birth (no need to post your DOB here if you don't want to.) Tell me what element you get under the first row and second column under Heavenly Stem and Day. Read the description of the element you got on this site under Ba Zi or click one of these below.

    Gui Water
    Ren Water

    Ding Fire
    Bing Fire


    Wu Earth
    Ji Earth


    Jia Wood
    Yi Wood


    Geng Metal
    Xin Metal


    ---

    As for me? I'm considered a Weak Gui Water, it means I need to wear more White, Gold, Blue, Black, and Grey. Does the description of Gui Water describe me? Yep.

    Interesting!

    I appear to be " - Xin Metal". Although the description sounds a little too flashy for me... I am most certainly not naturally sociable.

    In accordance to the Geomancy site, though, I do think I look good in blue and red (it's actually a combo I sometimes use). Not black, though, I'm a little shadowy as it is... I'm also studying Communications, a Water job, which is recommended.

    I'm also gonna be unlucky until I'm 42.

    Metal Ram seems to describe my conflicting aspects pretty well, too. Although I think Rabbit might also have worked just fine.

    Um... This isn't cultural appropriation on my part, is it, @Rail Tracer?

    I don't think so. Like I said, just for fun.

    There are many things about this system I don't know about yet. Heck, I wouldn't even have known about it if I didn't come about it by accident. (I look at yearly horoscopes[both western and eastern] for the fun of it... though technically the Lunar New Year isn't happening until late January.)

    For me, my luck does not arrive until I'm 25, and after that, it is pretty much smooth sailing until I am 115

    Those 10 year estimates are just that, estimates. If you check each year how your animal sign and element will do, chances are that it might not be a bad year.

    Say, for example, even though my 10 year lucks don't come until I am 25 (2014) when I check my yearly rating as a weak gui water snake, it says that I am probably one of the best candidates to have a good year for 2011 (remember... 2012 doesn't start for the Lunar calender until January 23.)

    So @Viridian, depending if you have a weak Xin metal or a strong Xin metal, your year for 2011 might have been pretty good.

    seems pretty accurate

    this was fun!

    HS, day: Gui Water

    Not really a good match...

    Birth Element: Weak yin water snake

    Your personal objects / dressing
    ie shades of colours:-
    Metal - white/gold
    Water - blue/black/gray

    Your career
    ie a Job favourable for you are:-
    Metal - Accountancy, Banking, Investment, etc
    Water - Advertising, Arts, Communications, etc

    Water careers are a very good match but not the metal ones

    Default big dumb tree

    My Day Element is 甲 Jia Wood (male wood)


    甲 people can pictured as tall, big trees, timber and big logs. These people are tough, hard and rough.
    It is easy to foresee the development of the growth and character of a 甲 person and it is not likely that 甲 people will develop otherwise unless they meet a very big setback or that they grow up in an abnormal background. Taking a example of a tree being chopped by an axe in its early stages of growth.

    甲 people are people who will spend efforts to plan and develop in order to move upwards from their current situation, just like the way trees extend themselves to reach out for sunlight for growth. Furthermore, they are not easily wavered by temptations like trees with their roots firmly rooted in the ground.

    Other characteristics of 甲 people are they have strong willpower and will not give up easily even when they encounter setbacks. They are forthright and do not beat around the bush. They are steady, righteous and stern. They like to upkeep morals and reputations therefore they are not frivolous and slipshod in their work.

    甲 people sympathise others and will not turn away those that are in need of their help and this may lead to much interferences to others. But then at times, they would appear to be unfeeling, but it is not because they are not sentimental but rather because they are simply not tuned in to what is happening around them.

    Shortcomings of 甲 people are that they are stubborn and would not compromise. They are also not very quick-witted and sometimes not able to adapt to the changing circumstances. Similar to a strong tree with its roots firmly rooted in the ground, changes are not likely to happen overnight.

    About the lucky element from this site, for me it says my most favourable element is Fire and following that, Metal.
    But according to this site which considers one's time zone and longitude, the element I need more of in my life to achieve balance is water.

    When the Water is your lucky element
    Pig and Rat are your lucky animals.
    Years of Pig and Rat are your lucky years.
    Months of Pig and Rat are your lucky Months.
    Winter or cold season is your lucky season.
    21:00 - 1:00 (9 P.M. to 1 A.M.) are your lucky hours.
    Northern direction is your lucky place.
    It will bring you luck to live a house that faces north.
    You should choose a bedroom on the north side of the house.
    When arranging the office desk, you should sit facing the north.
    A metal or water bed is good for you.
    Your lucky color is black.
    You should wear black often.
    You should use a black system (dark colors) for decorating your house.
    Take care of your excretory system - also your Kidneys, Bones and Ears.
    Wearing jewelry will bring you luck.

    The year of the water dragon is approaching, so I am going with water for my lucky element.
