Your Lucky Element
The following is the example of the Chinese Astrology Birth Chart.
|The Birth Chart of June 15, 2008
Upper Row of Day Column (Day Master) represents the Person
|Fire represents the person. This Birth Chart shows Fire-Type Person|
This person was born on June 15, 2008 or June 30, 1948. The symbol of the upper row of the Day Column (a.k.a. Day Master) represents the person. So we can say Day Master is Male Fire, which represents this person. The birth chart has too little Metal and needs more Metal to balance the Five Elements. Therefore, theLucky Element is Metal.
2015 is Female Wooden Sheep year. Sheep contains Earth, Fire and Wood. Wood helps Fire to burn into Earth (dust). This is a year of strong Earth and Fire. This birth chart already has too much Fire and Earth, which make the birth chart even more imbalanced. It’s is pretty bad sign. The extremely stronger Fire lets this short-tempered person become even more hot-tempered. The irritating personality will likely bring very poor and hostile feelings in relationships with friends and siblings. Furthermore, possible bad investment, money loss and financial problems may come after.
Water is weak in the birth chart. Water becomes very unfavorable when strong Earth and Fire are around. Water is related to career. The strong Earth helps this person to explode bad temper quickly without fear. This will create enemy at work. This is bad sign for the career luck.
Wood also comes in 2015. Wood doesn’t help this person at all. The is because Wood is the mother element of Fire. Wood will make Fire stronger. Fire is the unlucky element. That implies parents or supporters lead this person to a wrong direction.
Fortune Basic – Lucky Element and Day Master Type
2013 was the Year of Snake. Snake is the first year of the Fire cycle before Horse. The Fire of Snake is heat from the rising sun reaching to the top of sky. 2014 is the Year of Horse.

If you had trouble for past years, 2015 is the turning point year for you. Sheep contains Female Earth, which can help people to create something from nothing, Therefore, anyone wants an outstanding performance in 2015, then he needs to find a new approach to reach the goal.

Sheep contains fire, earth and wood. So Sheep can help Female Wood becoming stronger. That implies you will do well in 2015, if your Lucky Element is Wood.
