Birth Chart in Chinese Characters

Adam Lanza was born on the Male Earth Dragon Male Soil day in the Wooden Dragon month of the Water Monkey Year. The upper row of the Day Column is called Day Master (or Day Stem) and represents the person. Therefore, Male Metal Male Earth represents Adam himself.

Five Elements


Dragon is in the Earth group. It also contains Water Female Water and Wood Female Wood. Monkey in in the Metal group. It also contains Earth Male Metal and Water Male Water. Earth are found in every column of the birth chart. Because, Earth is the strongest element in the Dragon month, therefore, Earth is the strongest element in the birth chart.

Water Birth year 1992 is Water Monkey Male Water Year. Both Monkey and Dragon contains some Water. Therefore Water is not a weak element.
Wood April of 1992 is Wooden Dragon Male Wood. Wood is also found inside two Dragons. Water is the Mother Element of Wood (tree). Therefore Wood is not weak, either.

Fire is the Mother Element of Earth. Additional Fire can generate more Earth. The birth chart has already enough Earth; we don't need extra Earth. If additional Fire arrives, then stronger Earth makes Adam become a strong-minded, domineering, overbearing and dictatorial person.


Male MetalMetal is found inside Monkey Metal is a Child Element of Earth. Metal can release the energy of Earth. Since Metal can weaken the Earth. We want to select Metal as the Lucky Element.

Although, Earth is the most strong element in the birth chart. But there is no Fire in the birth chat. Therefore, Earth doesn't have the support from the Mother Element of Fire. Wood is not weak and it receives Water's support. Tree (Wood) can penetrate into the ground (Earth). Water and Earth are opposite elements. If Wood joins Water, they have enough power to challenge the Day Master Earth. This is the potential problem in this birth chart.

Symbols in the Birth Chart

Adam has strong Earth. Earth can make Water disappear. Since Earth can conquer Water, Water is related to money. Money Water Easy Money appears on the Year column and also hides inside the lower row of birth chart. Male Water Male Water of the Year column represents easy money or father to Adam. So Adam was born in good financial family.

Male Wood Male Wood is next to Day Master Earth Male Metal. Wood brings pressure to Adam. That implies the family's discipline at home was strict. This is fine, because Earth is too strong. Male Wood is also an Evil Star Discipline to Adam. The Evil Star has the violent characteristic. If Evil Star is well-controlled, then person can have a good career in military, police, law enforcement area. If Evil Star is out of control, then person will become violent and live in the world of gangland. Because Wood is afraid of Metal, to control the Evil Star Wood should use the Male Metal Male Metalinside the Monkey . To select Male Metal as the Lucky Element is a right choice. The other way to handle the Evil Star is to use Mother Star Fire. But this approach is only for weak Day Master, not for Adam's strong Earth.

Monkey contains mainly Metal. Metal is a Child Star of Day Master Earth. Anything out of Earth is related to Metal. Therefore, Metal represents Adam's outlook, expression, behavior, performance and reputation. Monkey is an Intelligent Star to Adam and Metal is a Lucky Element. This implies Adam should have a good academic performance at school. Monkey is also a Hidden Money Star , his family prepares good financial support for him.

Dragon contains mainly Earth. Earth gives Adman more courage and confidence. But Dragon is a Lonely Star to him. Adam has two Dragons. He won't have too many close friends. The Dragon   of Month is also an Talent Star . People with Talent Star are smart and sharp, have gift in arts, like to focus in learning alone, like to stay in a tranquil environment. Since Dragon is Earth. The person might be interested in religious.

There are two Dragons are in the birth chart. When Dragon meets Dragon, they have Self-Hurting Relationship. The Hurting Relationship is related to the poor relative relationship. People have Self-Hurting Relationship in the birth chart often blame on their mistake after they intentionally or unintentionally bruise people's heart. The worst case, they will hurt their own body and soul.

In general, Adam's birth chart simply shows he is a smart guy with strict home education and likes to be alone and has poor social skill. Since nobody is perfect, his birth chart is "normal" from Chinese astrology view.

Five Elements and Ten Gods

Next, we want to study Adam's 10-Year Major Cycles to see anything impact his life.

Chinese astrology is talking about Five Elements. Five Elements have Circulating Relationship and Destructive Relationship. Five Elements can break down into Yin (Female) and Yang (Male). In general,
Cow, Sheep, Dog and Dragon are Earth. Chicken and Monkey are Metal. Rabbit and Tiger are Wood. Rat and Pig are Water. Horse and Snake are Fire.

To be more accurate, Dragon contains Male Earth, Female Water, Female Wood. Snake contains Male Fire, Male Earth, Male Metal. Monkey contains Male Metal, Male Water, Male Earth. (more details)

From the Five Stars theory, we know that

The Five Stars can be distinguished by Yin and Yang, and are derived into 10-God relationships.We have Adam Lanza's 10-God Relationship Chart on the right.

10-Year Major Cycle

Adam Lanza's Chinese Astrology 10-Year Major Cycles

Age/Year Major Cycle Astrology Sign


Female Metal

Female Wood Snake
Snake is Fire
Female Metal Wood is discipline, which brings Adam pressure. Snake is in the Fire group. Fire is related to parents and education. But Snake and Monkey of Year have Attraction Relationship into Water. Water can make Wood stronger. Water and Wood together are able to challenge the strength of Day Master Earth. Adam's began to lose his confidence when facing the pressure from Wood.

The Lucky Element of Metal is afraid of Snake Fire. The Metal inside the Monkey is taken away by Snake. There is no Lucky Element during these 10 years. without Metal, Adam had trouble in expression.

Snake and Monkey also have Hurting Relationship. Mixing Attraction and Hurting Relationships means love-and-hate relationship in the family.

Female Wood Female Metal is the proper discipline, Angel Star Angel Guide you. Male Wood of Month is the unbecoming discipline, Evil Star Discipline. When Angel Star and Evil Star come into people life in the same time, people easily lose their focus on daily events.

A neighbor said, "Adam Lanza has been a weird kid since we were 5 years old.


Male Fire Horse
Horse is Fire
Fire is the Mother Element of Earth. Fire is something to make Earth strong. So Fire is related parents, teachers, mentors, education and medicine. Horse is in the Fire group. This is a very strong Fire cycle.

Fire can protect the Earth. Fire is the Child Element of Wood. Therefore, Evil Star Discipline of Wood Male Wood won't attack Earth, when Fire is around. The reason is that Fire receives the energy of Wood, and then Fire passes its energy to Earth. Earth becomes even stronger, which is bad.

The Lucky Element of Metal Male Metal inside the Monkey needs to find its way to survive under strong Fire cycle. Certainly, Metal cannot help Earth at all. The flow of Five Elements in the birth chart from Water to Wood, Wood to Fire, Fire to Earth, and then jams on the Earth.

Metal is the Child Element of Earth. Metal represents Adam's talent and performance. Strong Fire lets Adam's lose his opportunity to perform. He had difficulty for expressions. Adam lost his freedom because of too much protections of Fire, which are parents, school or medicine.

When Earth is too strong without Metal, Adam's became stubborn, bad-tempered, domineering and dictatorial person. With the influence of Evil Star Discipline , Adam's personality may develop into violent tendency.

Surely, this is a very bad 10-year cycle to Adam. But this kind of bad luck shouldn't take away Adam's humanity. We need to study the 2012 Yearly Cycle, the year of Dragon.

The problem of Fire Horse 10-year Major Cycle is too much Fire. 2012 is Male WaterMale WaterMale Water Dragon year. Dragon is in the Earth group and contains Water. In Chinese astrology, Dragon is also known as Water Dam. 2012 is a strong Water Year. Water Male Water of 2012 and Fire Female Metal of Major Cycle have Fighting Relationship. This Fighting relationship is outside the birth chart. That implies outside world made lots of noise to Adam.

2012 Yearly Cycle

When Water of 2012 Male Water joining Water in the Year Column of birth chart are strong enough to push Fire away. If Fire walks away, then Wood Male Wood will attack Day Master Earth. Since Water is the Mother Element of Wood, Water of 2012 fully supports Wood - Evil Star Discipline. The strength of Water and Wood is over the strength of Fire and Earth in 2012. That means Adam had difficult time to defend himself with the protection of parents, education and medicine.

Dragon of 2012 is another Lonely Star to Adam. When a Dragon meets another Dragon, they will have Self-Hurting Relationship. Total of three Dragons form a double Self-Hurting Relationship. Usually, a person will make mistake in relative relationship and blame on himself during the period of Self-Hurting Relationship.

It's obvious that 2012 shouldn't be a peaceful year to Adam. He was losing his confidence to fight with strong Wood, the Evil Star Discipline. Definitely, he had a big challenge to face. But the Earth of three Dragons were still supporting him.

December Monthly Cycle

December of 2012 is Male Water Rat month Male WaterMale Water. Rat is in the Water group. That means December of 2012 is a pure Water month, which is very unfavorable to Day Master Earth. Also Rat has the Fighting Relationship with Horse of Major Cycle. The pressure on Adam should be double in December.

When Rat meets Dragon and Monkey, they form a very special Attraction Relationship into a powerful Water. This means Dragon accepts the invitation from Water Rat and Water Monkey to become a member of the Water. Three of Dragons turned into the Water characteristic and forgot its Earth function in December. Then Day Master Earth lose its foundation support of Dragon. Mother Element Fire hardly survive in the strong Water environment. Suddenly, the strong Day Master Earth of the birth chart became Extremely Weak in December 2012. The Evil Star Discipline. was in charge of Adam's birth chart. Adam became a totally different and opposite person in December.

12/14/2012 Daily Cycle

December 14 of 2012 is Female Earth Chicken  Male Water day. Chicken is in Metal group. Chicken and Monkey have Attraction Relationship into Metal. Metal of Chicken is the Child Element of Female Earth   Since Metal can weaken Earth, Female Earth is unable to help Day Master Earth. Also, Female Earth cannot build Attraction Relationship with Male Wood Male Wood , because Dragons have lost their Earth characteristic to Water. Female Earth gave Adam only little bit of courage. It's too weak to fight the Male Wood, the Evil Star Discipline. If Adam could hold on his patience on this day, he still cannot face bigger challenge on 12/17/2012, which is a Male Water Rat day.

birth chart

When Day Master Male Earth is strong, then Fire is Unlucky Element and Metal is Lucky Element. When Day Master Earth is weak, then Fire is Lucky Element and Metal is Unlucky Element. Male Fire in the Major Cycle is extinguishes by three Male Water Male Water. The powerful Water relationship of Monkey, Rat and Dragon put out the Fire of Horse in the Major Cycle. Fire is Mother Element, which related to parents or education, and became the victims of Water.


The shooting tragedy happened on the extremely strong Water month. Water washed away the Day Master Earth Male Soil. Water is connected to Adam's money, father, luxury life, black, cold, rat or female's love. From the opposite view, extinguished Fire is associated with lack of mother love, mental support or medical care. During strong Water period, Adam should be very weak in his body and mind. He was struggling to show his tough side to people. Evil Star Discipline let him choose the violence. The double Self-Hurting Relationships let him end up the suicide.

Actually, the ringleader is the Water Rat . Without Rat, the Dragons will support the Day Master Earth. Without Rat, the Day Master Earth can fight with Evil Star. Without Rat, Adam was a normal kid. Adam should lose control and act as a different identify when a Rat appearing in the Astrology Cycle. Therefore, every Rat year, he should have serious mental health problem. 1996 was Male Fire Rat year. 2008 was Male Earth Rat Year. Adam was 4 in 1996 and 16 in 2008. He was unable to hurt others at that pages.

It's hard for parents and schools to educate a double personality kid. When he was normal, we need to guide him using Metal. When he was abnormal, he needs help and protection from Fire. Adam liked to wear black. It's OK when he was normal. It's a bad luck sign when he was weak.

When Adam's Day Master Earth was strong and he chose the military career, he should be able to handle that as long as not the cycles of Rat. But something still will happen in December 2012. The difference is the victims won't be young school children and teachers. If he went to study religious by leaving home, it might be a better choice. If something happens in December, then he might not have lethal weapons.

All analysis is based on the Chinese Astrology Birth Chart without birth time. The 10-Year Major Cycles might be off one year.
