The Iron Joe Thomas – A Perfect Blend of Strength and Creativity

Every profession requires a different set of talents; therefore Five Elements charts always reflect these abilities, flawlessly.

When it comes to American Football, usually we see three prominent Character Components. Leaders on the field, like Tom Brady for example, typically have very active POWER Component, combined with CREATIVITY. But when it comes to such aggressive sport as American Football, the BODY component is the key; it provides them with stamina and competitiveness.

Joe Thomas is one of the most known NFL players, famous for his great stamina, combined with creative skills, which is a rare blend to come across. His streak of over 10.000 consecutive snaps, which lasted for over a decade, was abrupted a few days ago after the triceps injury. To last that long, in one of the most injury-prone sports, it’s almost a miracle, so we decided to have a look.

“Iron” Joe Thomas was born as Yang Water Master Element, and his chart mainly consists of Water and Wood element. Earth element is fragile, while Metal serves here to support Water.

Strong Water element here is a clear indicator that BODY Component is robust, which brings him physical power, self-esteem, and competitiveness.

Strong Wood brings him creative ability and intelligence on the field, in the form of Performer and Artist Talents.

He has one compelling chart when it comes to competitive sports. A strong BODY is a foundation for every athlete, it protects them from injuries, and provides stamina. On a mental level, it gives them the courage to face the opponent.

Water occupies over 55% of his chart, and ordinarily such excess would be problematic, but sturdy Wood uses this power and turns it into a creative force, making this chart highly productive.

So some of you probably wonder why he got injured now? There are many factors in play, but one of the main ones is that since 2014 he is in strong Yin Wood period, and this year brings strong Yin Metal, both these elements hurt his Yin Water, which represents his BODY; therefore he was more prone to injuries than usual.

No doubt that he will be back on the field soon, a few months break is good for him so he can skip the rest of this, for him, problematic year.
