Your Lucky Element
The following is the example of the Chinese Astrology Birth Chart.
The Birth Chart of June 15, 2008
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, the Lucky Element is Metal.
2014 is Male Wooden Horse year. Horse contains mainly Fire. Therefore, 2014 is Wood on the Fire. Wood can help Fire to burn hotter, higher and longer. This birth chart already has too much Fire. The strong Fire of 2014 makes this birth chart even more imbalanced. It's is not a good 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.
Fortune Basic - Lucky Element and Day Master Type
2013 was the Year of Black 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. The Fire of Horse is the heat from ground which absorbs heat from the sun on the top of the sky. The Fire of Horse is hotter than the Fire of Snake. If you do great in 2013 because of Fire, then you will do even better in 2014.
2014 is Male Wood Snake Year. The Male Wood is connected to a tall tree. A tree needs sunshine, earth and water to grow stronger and taller. Horse contains Fire and Earth. If your birth chat contains water and Wood is your Lucky Element, then you will do well in 2014, too.
The following table shows people's luck in 2014 based on their Luck Element.
|Lucky Element||How good is my luck in 2014?|
|Metal||It's no good. Horse of 2014 contains mainly Fire. Metal is afraid of Fire. Metal and Wood of 2014 are opposite elements; they have fighting relationship. Luckily, Horse contains Female Earth, which has attraction relationship with Wood of 2014 into Earth. Earth is the mother element of Metal. Metal shouldn't be hurt by Fire too bad. But the fortune of 2014 is quite little. If Water is found in the birth chart or Major Cycle, then that can cool down the Fire and help Metal to survive. If Dragon or Cow is found in the birth chart or Major Cycle, then Metal will have the protection when Fire attacks. In this case, 2014 should be fine. If Metal is weak and hurt by Fire of 2014, then you need to pay attention on your respiratory system, because Metal is connected to lungs.|
|Water||It is no good. Horse of 2014 contains Fire and Earth. However Water is not afraid of Fire. Fortunately, the Earth of Horse can protect Fire from attacking by Water. Also, Wood of 2014 makes Fire stronger. That means Water cannot win over the Fire of 2014. Water should be too weak to help the birth chart, therefore the fortune of 2014 is limited. If Water is extremely weak in the birth chart, then we might have to pay attention to your kidneys, the urinary system.|
|Wood||It is fine. 2014 is a Wooden Fire Horse year. Fire is the child element of Wood. Mother Wood always helps child Fire to burn stronger. Wood does the giving without taking. Eventually, Wood will burn into dust. That implies 2014 will bring some kind of opportunities first, then those opportunities will disappear. Therefore, when we get help or advice, we need to learn from our sources as much as possible. We need to prepare to do the job by ourselves when help is not available. If there is no Fire or little Fire in the birth chart, Fire of 2014 will become very helpful. This is because Wood (Tree) needs water, earth and sunshine to grow taller and stronger. When lucky element Wood gains support from Fire, then stronger Wood will bring you better luck in 2014.|
|Fire||It is excellent. Horse is the strong animal containing Fire. Wood is the mother element of Fire. Wood can help Fire to burn longer. Wood also can protect Fire from extinguishing by Water. Wood and Fire together form a perfect combination for Fire. The fortune of 2014 will come very soon and last for at least one year long. Although, Fire is the lucky element, you still need to keep your mind on your heart / cardiovascular system during strong Fire Year.|
|Earth||It is very good. 2014 is Male Wood Horse Year. Horse contains Female Fire and Female Earth. Fire is the mother element of Earth. Earth is afraid of Wood. But Male Wood of 2014 and the Female Earth inside Horse have attraction relationship into Earth. That implies Horse can turn Earth's enemy into its friend. 2014 might bring a little trouble at the beginning, but it will end up with a good result. Just be patient; something will be changing and become better right after spring.|
The following table informs people's what event may occur in 2014 based on their Day Master Element Type. Day Master is the upper row symbol in the Day Column of the Birth Chart.
|Day Master Type||What will happen in 2014?|
|Metal||Wood of 2014 represents money or wealth to Metal. Therefore a money event
will appear in
2014. If you have strong Metal in your birth chart, then you will have
better money luck. This is because you knew how to mange
the money in the past. You should have a chance to increase your income,
investments or wealth. But if you have a weak Metal in the birth chart, then
you will feel short of money soon or later.

Basically, your career luck will be same to 2013. If you were doing well in your career in 2013, then your career luck will continue and you might have a better career promotion opportunity to expand your power and working responsibilities during 2014.

But what if you have weak Metal? Metal cannot fight against Wood and Fire. Money and job will bring you big trouble. If you are a business person, then you might have money loss in your business or you may pay a penalty for a mistake in business. If you are an employee in an organization, you cannot be greedy with money. You better not receive illegal money. Otherwise, money will bring you bad reputation, maybe even a lawsuit.
If you are a man, then Wood of 2014 is connected to women, girlfriend or wife. If you are single, then you should have some chances to meet some women through social networks.

freedom or expression. That means 2014 is the time to show your talents to
others. Your social life will make you a little bit busier. If you become

fame or reputation.
