The Eating God Star in Chinese Astrology Signs and Elements
The Great Strategist and Hedonism of the Eating God Star in BaZi Birth Charts or 4 Pillars of Destiny
John Lennon’s song, IMAGINE, displays the general characteristics of the Eating God Star in Chinese Astrology signs and elements.
Think Great Strategist, Gourmand, Eccentric, Philosopher, Day Dreamer, Deep Thinker and Hedonist. In Chinese Astrology or BaZi birth charts, the Eating God Star is the Output Star. It is what you give birth to, create, produce and what earns you income.
The best quality Eating God Star of the inventor, architect, artist or entertainer, is when their innovative creations win them legendary, iconic stardom status. Be it artistry, acting, singing, entertainment, a tool or a building, the good quality Eating God creations will last into perpetuity. We will remember the person long after their life has passed.
Imagine the world without, Thomas Edison and the light bulb, Orville Wright and the airplane, Henry Ford and the Model T. Michelangelo and the Sistine Chapel, Ludwig van Beethoven and 9th Symphony, Steve Jobs and Apple Inc. And, IMAGINE John Lennon’s ability to touch millions of people across nations, with a song.
If you put the qualities of inventor, strategist, deep thinker and the meticulous tinkerer, you can see the great inventions and creations of our time. Their biographies will often show various aspects of the Eating God attributes.
The Eating God Star is the consummate day-dreamer and eccentric. In best cases, they bring their dreams to life. You can see they are highly analytical and objective in the mind. As well as extremely meticulous and uniquely imaginative. They can generate wealth because they have original ideas and can innovate beyond the norm. In business they are interested in opportunities that will last, not just the quick fix and immediate gratification. It is their capacity to express their thought and ideas in the concrete form that makes them stand out.
After all, what makes a person able to create a masterpiece that resonates with the soul? Or, mastermind an invention that changes society and people’s lives forever? This is why a strong Eating God Star is extreme in some way and a tad eccentric. What they have to offer the world is beyond dreams and the ordinary.
It requires someone who can go inward, someone who can connect to the hearts of masses of people’s soul and spirit and then translate that into an object of creation.
The Eating God displays a gentle personality, reserved, introverted and inward-looking. They are generally non-confrontational, good listeners who are patient and understanding in nature.
This star gives a superior appreciation of aesthetics, a love for beautiful things and beautiful people. They are classy, cultured, pleasure-centric, and value the finer things in life.
There will be a flair for the romantic and poetic emotionalism that is in tune with their inner selves. It is their capability to express those thoughts and feelings in the written word, the artistic creation or the scientific breakthrough that makes them stand out. Hence, you have the Einstein, the Beethoven, the Michelangelo.
The quality or strength of the Eating God Star is greatly determine by the balance of elements in the entire BaZi birth chart and the person’s Day Master. Each Day Master will express a different quality of Eating God Star (a topic for a future blog).
The Eating God Star is the one star that is important for income generation. When we see this Star, we want to see a good quality Resource Star. Resource is the star of knowledge and thinking. The Resource Star is what feeds you, makes you comfortable in your skin, able to study, retain knowledge and use your intelligence. It gives substance to the Eating God Star. Steve Jobs’ BaZi chart is an example with good quality Eating God Star supported by strong Resource.
Without knowledge the Output Star is not good quality. After all, what can you create if you are not making use of your intelligence and wisdom? If the Resource is there, the Ouput Star will show its positive traits.
The Eating God Star that reaches the status of the figures listed above will often show extremes in their personalities. I call this a side effect. When a good quality Eating God star is in the natal chart or shows up in a year or 10 year luck cycle, people will want to express themselves and give birth to something, like a new project or a new job. For women it may be giving birth. The Eating God star inspires one to create.
Too strong or weak and without control, the Eating God will drain the person and exhibit its negative qualities. When the Eating God star is imbalanced, you will find an aimless daydreamer, divorced from reality. The eccentricity is extreme, as is over-thinking, ultra-orthodox behavior. They will over-complicate problems, be dogmatic and can’t face reality or grow up, preferring to live in a fantasy world. Hence, the classic Peter Pan syndrome. Imbalanced, they are impractical perfectionists, mean-spirited, pedantic and hair splitters.
A good Destiny Analyst will look for solutions to imbalances as the birth chart represents only 1/3 of a person’s life. Feng Shui and personal decision-making play a large role in the other 2/3s of a person’s life. A solution lies somewhere in this trinity of one’s luck factors. Often, the first step is to recognize how to use what is strong in the chart and how to moderate the challenges.
