Bazi Day Master | Earth – What Helps You Build Trust? – Knowing Yourself And Your Personality (Traits), Insights From Janet Yung (Part Five)

Bazi Day Master | Earth

It was a tough week, my mum had been in and out of hospital over the last couple of weeks, and my siblings and I were taking turns to watch over her…somehow we knew we could rely on one another to get through these tough times…

TRUST, dependence, approachability, stability and the following quotes are often associated with the element of earth in one’s personality based on the Asian Personality Profiling System*. 

“You may be deceived if you trust too much, but you will live in torment if you don’t trust enough.”

-Frank Crane

“If you have three people in your life that you can trust, you can consider yourself the luckiest person in the whole world.”

-Selena Gomez

Learning to trust is one of life’s most difficult tasks. But in the last few weeks, it dawned on me that if we live life thinking that the world is always cheating on us, we will be missing that wonderful feeling of trust in someone (or something). With trust, the foundation of human relationships are built, and only with this, love can flourish and we can be on our way to happiness.

“It is better to suffer wrong than to do it, and happier to be sometimes cheated than not to trust.”

-Samuel Johnson

The earth element in our Bazi* charts is a crucial element for our search for harmony and happiness in our lives.  Just like Mother Earth, this element brings about stability, trust and is the foundation for all of us to feel secure and grounded.

If your Bazi* chart lacks the earth element or is full of the water element, you usually will not trust too easily and may prefer to “drift” rather than be with your loved ones as you will feel “tied down” with too many strings attached.

“We’re never so vulnerable than when we trust someone – but paradoxically, if we cannot trust, neither can we find love or joy.”

-Walter Anderson

As with all other things, too much of a good thing can be bad for us. Thus, if we trust too much, without double-checking the source, we may become gullible.  Too much stability may bring about the unwillingness to change or what others may perceive as being too obstinate or sentimental.

Here’re more on the characteristics of individuals born on the day of the Earth element:

Day Master     :            Yang Earth (Wu)

Yang Earth is similar to the earth of mighty mountains, solid rocks and massive boulders

Characteristic: Stable, Trustworthy, Perseverant

Yang Earth personalities exhibit sheer stability thus offering those around them a sense of security and reliability.  Just like the dam that mitigates flooding from a swollen river, the Yang Earth type is able to withstand a tremendous amount of emotional and psychological pressure.  However, they may also hold back their own inner thoughts and feelings (similar to the treasures within the mountain) and have difficulty expressing themselves and may be perceived to procrastinate and have an unwillingness to change once their minds are made up.

Day Master     :            Yin Earth (Ji)

Yin earth can be represented by the earth of the fields which grow plants and paddy.

Characteristic: Resourceful, Gentle, Nurturing

Similar to Mother Earth’s productive soil, the Yin Earth personality is creative and full of ideas. They are nurturing, resourceful, forgiving and multi-talented and are willing to explore new horizons in life.  However, others may take their kindheartedness as being gullible and as they are more accommodating of others’ weaknesses and mistakes, they may be over comprising and thus are not as decisive when it comes to tough decisions.
