They carry a strong sense of care and concern. Thus, are very nurturing. Unfortunately, they usually fail to see their worth most of the time and they need to be pushed to develop their full potential.

In addition, they tend to procrastinate a lot.

3) Yin Wood 乙 (Yi)

Yin Wood people are adaptable, flexible, and resilient, even in the face of adversity. They are easy-going and versatile, allowing them to function in a variety of contexts.

However, these people tend to be melodramatic and may want to seek attention and approval in certain situations.

4) Yang Wood 甲 (Jia)

Yang Wood people are blunt and straight to the point. This is because they have a strong character and a strong feeling of independence. They are also very determined individuals with a fervent yearning to succeed. As such, they are very successful in creating wealth over time through their work. However, due to their strong personalities, they can often come across as offensive or insensitive.

6) Yang Fire 丙 (Bing)

People with this Day Master are dependable and supportive. They are often optimistic, expressive, and likely to stick to their habits and routines. They can hold the same job longer as they thrive in having a routine. Unfortunately, given their penchant for sticking to what is familiar, they dislike unplanned moments and last-minute changes. This makes it difficult for them to come out of their comfort zones.

People with Yin Metal Day Master tend to showcase their talent and skills. They revel in the acknowledgment and appreciation of other people. They hold people’s attention really well, thus, making them really good speakers, politicians, educators, and motivators. In addition, they are also highly intelligent and resourceful. Unfortunately, given their penchant for words, they can sound controlling.

8) Yang Metal 庚 (Geng)

 Yang Metal is one of the toughest of the 10 Day Masters. That said, despite their tough and fierce appearance, people with this Day Master are known to be kind-hearted and loving. They are also very philanthropic; willing to help anyone less fortunate.  They also champion hard work and perseverance in achieving their goals. Thus, they tend to be systematic and responsible. Unfortunately, they can rub off as arrogant and overly competitive.

Those with the Yin Water Day Master tend to be inventive, intuitive, and creative. As such, when making decisions, they usually rely on their intuition. This makes them successful business people as they have excellent judgement, great instincts, and accurate people assessment. However, sometimes, their overreliance on their gut feel makes them emotional and lack consistency.

10) Yang Water 壬 (Ren)

People with Yang Water Day Master are active and dynamic. As such, they are often focused and always driven by big dreams. With their resourcefulness and intelligence, they are natural-born entrepreneurs; possessing exceptional business acumen. In addition, with their determination to succeed, they will not give up until they achieve their goals. Unfortunately, being a jack of all trades often make them unsure what to do in their life. As such, they can be easily influenced by others or be easily distracted.

Final Thoughts

Knowing your Day Master is insufficient to fully encapsulate who you are as a person and your personality. Rather, to understand yourself better and know your future, better seek the help of Feng Shui masters.

Nevertheless, by understanding your Day Master, you get a preliminary baseline to what is your personality, what are your possible strengths and weaknesses, and what are suitable occupations for you.
