The perfect chart of a football player

Posted on July 16, 2014, Posted in Sport

The World Cup reached its climax, with Germany taking the trophy, well deserved, as most people, experts and non-experts, agree. It was their team spirit which won over individual geniuses such as Messi and Neymar.


As promised, we have put together a very interesting analysis of all the players we checked during this tournament, 14 altogether.


After a few days into the World Cup and several players’ analysis we realized certain patterns, which we decided to put together in one chart to see what can we learn from it.


We also noticed that this particular pattern was very much present  with attacking and attacking-midfield players, so we decided to exclude from this analysis Guillermo Ochoa, the Mexican goalkeeper.


We used the charts of the following 13 players:


Robin van Persie
Mario Balotelli
Lionel Messi
Thomas Mueller
Mario Madzukic
Luis Suarez
Karim Benzema
Miroslav Klose
Cristiano Ronaldo
Arjen Robben
Andrea Pirlo
James Rodriguez


We merged the data of all of the 10 profiles of each player and generated one single chart, with the following result:

football players bazi chart


The blue bars represent strong profiles, red weak ones, while grey bars represent average strength. By observing the chart we can gain more understanding of what it takes to be a great football player. Of course, this is not all, individual luck which can vary with every year, plays an important part as well and will influence the intensity of these characteristics.


The profile which dominates our merged chart is the The Performer. The Performer profile, as the name already says, is all about expressing ones skills and talents, mostly publicly.  The Artist profile in comparison is more about introverted expression, as in painting or writing while The Performer profile thrives with publicity and loves attention and to be able to show its abilities.


So, it comes as no surprise that all great attacking football players are born with a dominating The Performer profile. This gives them the ability to perform on the pitch. When you are out there right in front, this is the most needed trait.


We also checked a few football players who are playing in defending positions, and noticed that their pattern is something very different. Their strongest profiles are The Diplomat and The Warrior, which are more related to defending qualities. Mostly people who join the army or police have one of these two profiles in dominance.


So we have creators in front, and protectors at the back of the pitch. Nature really does know how to put everything in order :-)


To come back to our chart, the second strongest profile is The Self. This is quite normal for a strong creative person, The Self profile must be strong to support the creativity. It also gives strong confidence.


Now at the  lower end we have four profiles which are around the ‘very weak’ mark. They are The Pioneer, The Warrior, The Analyzer and The Philosopher.


The Pioneer and The Warrior profiles have certain characteristics in common. One is impatience, a desire to gain something quickly. This is a behavior which doesn’t work well for attacking football players. For them the game is to wait for the right moment and to strike when the opponent is not fully prepared. Many good attacking players don’t do much during the game. just one genius move can change the game, and for that one single move they need to work patiently, wait for the opportunity to arise. Somebody who has one of these two profiles in dominance and not under control can get very frustrated on the pitch.


The Analyzer and The Philosopher profiles are mostly about education and information, and these two profiles are proven to be the least suited for attacking players. The main problem with these two profiles is, that if they are strong, the creative profiles like The Performer and The Artist would be automatically weakened.  The Analyzer is the weakest profile in our merged chart, and that is the exact profile which threatens The Performer profile most. These are the mechanics of  the chart, one strong profile automatically makes another profile weak. That is why it is the best for both of  these ‘educational’ profiles is to remain low and avoid disturbing the player’s creativity.


This is also a reason why so many football players do not fancy school much and many of them leave school very early or they just make do with basic schooling. These profiles are also related to the person’s mother. We often see that mothers are not happy with their son’s choice to go for a football career as according to the 5 element charts, mothers are always in charge of their kids’ education, and if The Analyzer and The Philosopher are low, it is very likely that the kids will not be interested in school If they have a strong The Performer profile, they will be drawn towards sports or any kind of creative activity.


As we can see, there are definitely certain rules and conditions which have to be met for somebody to become a great football player. It’s same for every other profession, certain combinations are simply more favorable than others.


There are of course exceptions, as for example James Rodriguez. He does not have The Performer profile at all in his chart, he is more of  The Artist type, more introvert and a behind the scenes kind of guy, but what happened is that this year is a Yang Wood / Horse year which brings The Performer profile to him. As a result he scored 6 goals and earned the World Cup Golden Booth reward. As we can see, it’s not only about our birth chart, timing is also very, very important.


We shall be covering more and different professions in the future and we shall also soon publish a completely redesigned Life Analysis tool with the main focus on the 10 profiles, so please, stay tuned. We hope you enjoyed this World Cup series, as we did. If there are any questions please drop us a line here.

World Cup player of the day – James Rodriguez

Posted on June 29, 2014, Posted in Sport

james-rodriguezSo, after a little break the World Cup is back, now with the knock out phase which is already creating so much excitement.


We somehow overlooked one team during the group phase, Columbia, while they were playing exceptionally well. Especially their main striker, James Rodriguez, who is now the top scorer in this World Cup. He is also currently a top player on the FIFA Castrol Index.


James Rodriguez has a very interesting chart, a Yin Water born in a Goat month, which represents the end of the summer season with additional two Goats on his day and year pillar.


Here is his chart: http://www.turtleluck.com/life-analysis/?c=df711b8a7271db6f7fd0607d70183a242766292a


This combination is bringing him a massive amount of Yin Earth, making his The Warrior profile exceptionally strong. His creativity is also rather strong, in the form of The Artist profile, which is a bit more of an introvert type of creativity, and we can notice that he is bit shy when it comes to publicity.


Obviously, his Wood, Fire and Earth elements are good for him, therefore he is thriving in this Horse month and Horse year. Next year, which is Yin Wood / Goat, might be also very good for him, but it will be interesting to see how his career will develop when we enter  “colder” years from 2016 forward.

World Cup player of the day – Cristiano Ronaldo

Posted on June 24, 2014, Posted in Sport

cristiano-ronaldoWe will make a little exception today and choose the player of the day not entirely because he was the best, but more because Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the best football players in a history and considering that Portugal might not go any further, we will use this chance to present his chart. http://www.turtleluck.com/life-analysis/?c=7057456c3faa10e541bd1ee164176f7764a1b7f7


In yesterday’s game, Portugal vs USA, he assisted in equalising the goals literally only a few seconds before the end of match, which kept Portugal’s hopes up to go to the next round.


Ronaldo is a Yin Wood person, born in the month of the Tiger, which represents the beginning of the Spring season, when Yin Wood is gaining strength. He is one of those strong self elements, the wood element being very vibrant in his chart and supported with water and enough moist earth to feed the roots. When the self element is strong these people tend to be very confident and with a strong ego also often showing themselves. This is the reason why he really enjoys all the media noise around him. He is like beautiful blooming, healthy plant which likes to be admired and presented.


When somebody has a very strong and healthy self element, they are also very competitive and thrive under pressure. His metal element is low and he actually does not need it.


This is one very well balanced Yin Wood and again we see the same pattern as in most other players, a high creativity profile, Yang Fire, which in turn feeds his wealth.


His relationship and money profile is clearly visible in his chart.. Therefore he is very attractive to women and people generally. Everybody can see easily what he has and he is willing to present it.


Altogether, an excellent chart with creativity and money profiles perfectly balanced. The older he gets, the more creative he gets and the more money he makes. It is one of those perpetuum mobile money charts.

World Cup player of the day – Karim Benzema

Posted on June 21, 2014, Posted in Sport

karim-benzemaThe French national team has been a broken army for many years now, basically since Zinedine Zidan’s retirement. There are many reasons for that, but mainly  because of ego fights and inability  to follow a coach. In the last few tournaments the French team has been a laughing stock, due to their inability to function as a team.


But this year the situation is quite different, there is a new coach, Didier Deschamps, who is able to put all those egos in line. And they also have Karim Benzema, currently one of the most lethal attackers in the world.


Here is his chart: http://www.turtleluck.com/life-analysis/?c=3462be35d80ecbdcb152e1ddf5196ac4c2de7bb3


Benzema is a Yang Water, a very strong one, born in the Rat month which represents the middle of Winter season when the Water element is the strongest. Here again we have same pattern as with many of the football players we covered before, a strong creativity profile, in his case manifested as a strong Wood element.


And then again, similar to other players, a full flow of elements from strong self, to creativity which turns into wealth. This is one of those simple and beautiful charts.


He does not have any Metal element and very little Earth, meaning that he is not easy to control, his Yang Water is in full gushing flow, which makes him a fantastic striker.


Yang Waters are known for their ability to find a way over obstacles, having flexibility and force, all in one. They are also very good copy cats, they can learn skills from other people very quickly, like an ocean which reflects the sunlight at the speed of light.


One more characteristic is prominent and that is his competitiveness. It is in his very nature to compete with others and he is not afraid of it, it drives him even more.


When we check his past, we notice that his career thrived during Water and Wood years, 2007 to 2012, and 2013 and 2014 when there was additional water and wood coming, but the question is how his career will react from 2016, when he enters 3 years of Metal, which might not be very beneficial for him.

World Cup player of the day – Mario Mandzukic

Posted on June 19, 2014, Posted in Sport

mario mandzukicIt was quite difficult to choose yesterday’s player of the day, no one stuck out significantly. In the end we went for Mandžukic who scored 2 goals against Cameroon.


Here is his chart: http://www.turtleluck.com/life-analysis/?c=b428e226391058663349921ad7e5399b8f1c9b70


Mandžukic is a Yin Wood person, born in a Snake month, which represents the beginning of the summer. Summer is usually a tough season for Yin Wood, but in his chart we can sport a few good features which are creating a balance.


A decent amount of Yin Water helps to cool down the chart while the so called “wet earth” provides moisture for the Yin Wood roots. Therefore Mandzukic’s Yin Wood turns from weak to a rather vibrant one.


Mandzukic is another player of the day who has a strong creativity profile, brought about by his predominant Yang Fire. At this stage we can conclude that creativity is the most desired profile in a football player’s chart.


Here too we see a nice flow between a strong self element, creativity and wealth, the perfect chart for a successful athlete.

World Cup player of the day – Lionel Messi

Posted on June 16, 2014, Posted in Sport

Lionel-MessiOn the fourth day of the World Cup we finally had the chance to see the current best football player in the world, Lionel Messi.


He has been accused of not playing as well in his national team as he plays in Barcelona, therefore for him the World Cup games provide a chance to prove them all wrong, and it seems he will do anything to bring Argentina to the throne.


He started off well by scoring a goal last night against Bosnia and Herzegovina and leading his team to the first victory.


Lionel Messi is a Yang Wood person, born in the Horse month, which represents the mid summer season. The Fire element is very dominant in his chart, therefore his creativity profile is very strong. He shares this creativity pattern with Neymar, van Persie and Balotelli,  all of them showing very strong creativity profiles in their charts.


Here is his chart: http://www.turtleluck.com/life-analysis/?c=05d2880b43e709852e7eb800079b047b0699781d


Yang Wood people are known for their need for a stable environment. They do not like to change surroundings, just like a big tree does not like to be uprooted to be planted elsewhere. Those are more the qualities of Yin Wood people, who react like pot plants, shrubs or grass.  Lionel Messi confirmed several times that his intention is to play in Barcelona until the end of his career. The thought of changing surroundings can be rather scary for Yang Woods. As long as Messi is paid well, he will not seek another team, even if Barcelona is not as successful as it used to be.


Messi’s creativity regarding strategy and planning is highly developed. He has a very strong feeling for the field and the players, knowing exactly how to bring the ball across to produce the best possible result. This specific ability is combined with introvert characteristics. He comes across as a shy person who dislikes publicity.


Being a Rabbit also adds to this picture. Rabbits often behave like scientists, buried in some laboratory, working on a project and not seeking any company, unless really necessary.


He is also completely lacking the metal element, which in his case means having no interest in power or image. This distinguishes him from his competition for the best player in the world, Cristiano Ronaldo, who enjoys publicity very much.


His money luck is also very well balanced, playing wonderfully with his creativity profile. It’s a pure money machine with very little obstacles in his chart.


Altogether a very simple chart, ruled mostly by two elements, wood and fire, these kind of charts often produce the most brilliant personalities. It gives them simplicity and the ability to focus on one thing only without being distracted with too many options. All Messi wants is to play football and be the best at it.


World Cup player of the day: Neymar

Posted on June 14, 2014, Posted in Sport

NeymarThe World Cup fever is catching on. To celebrate this extraordinary gathering of talented football players every day we shall publish a chart of the player of the day, which will be chosen by our small jury :-)


Yesterday Neymar was definitely the player of the day. He scored two goals while his team, Brazil, successfully overcame the first opponent, Croatia, towards their ultimate goal, winning the World Cup.


Neymar is a Yin Metal person with a strong presence of water and wood element, which in his particular case brings creativity and wealth. Yin Metals are known by their attention seeking nature, a spotlight is their natural environment where they feel the best.


He is a so called “clean” Yin Metal, thoroughly polished by the water element, which makes him shine and very popular.


Creativity is definitely the first word which comes to us while looking into Neymar’s chart. Yang Water also gives him ability to find quick solutions on the field, like the water which always finds the way to go through, even if it’s just a little crack, but big enough to come out to the other end. Considering that earth element is rather weak in his chart, this water is practically unstoppable.


He is also a bit of a rebel, can’t really be controlled, the best coach can do is to let him do his thing and let the team support him, which is exactly the situation in Brazilian team.


Altogether, rather amazing chart, with his creativity feeding his wealth, he is ought to be extremely successful.

Why Luka Modric suddenly becomes so valuable?

Posted on March 22, 2013, Posted in News, Sport

Image: Marca.com

An article in Marca elaborates on how come Luka Modric suddenly is becoming a hero of Real Madrid while just few weeks ago he was labeled as last year’s biggest flop amongst football transfers?


Luka Modric is a Yin Metal person without any fire element in his birth chart. Normally a Yin Metal with this kind of element condition, especially when lacking Yang Fire, wouldn’t be able to shine, wouldn’t have any leadership skills and would struggle with any career altogether.
