Kanye West has been rather active lately on Twitter, after a long period of silence, and he stirred a lot of controversies, as usual. Kanye is known for his against-the-stream mentality, and he often declares himself as a free-thinker.
The entire chart moves in one direction, which is Fire controlling his Metal element, which represents Pioneer Talent; therefore this Talent is outstanding and very influential in his chart.
Element of Fire is closely connected with the emotion of love, and its counterpart, hate. He talks a lot about love and hate in his tweets. Being a strong Fire person, he naturally understands both sides of this emotion. His Fire is so dominant that his emotions might swing a lot between those two extremes unless he applies a certain level of discipline.
His Water Element is extremely weak, which means that he has power over authority, or he is not able to submit to it. This is where his idea of being a free-thinker is coming from; it means that his Creativity and Body Components are controlling the Power Component, demanding ultimate freedom.
His influence also comes from his Competitor Talent, which gives him the ability to inspire and lead masses. Most of the high-level pop-stars have this Talent, like Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, and many others.
The year of Earth Dog brought him more Earth, so he is even more outspoken this year. It’s interesting that he came back on Twitter just in the middle of Dragon / Dog clash when Earth element peaked this year, so he got pushed to express himself.
Kanye has a fascinating personality, and he is indeed a pioneer, but his chart is not easy to handle. With so much Fire he needs to be extremely disciplined to be able to control his emotions, and from what I can see, it seems he finally collected enough experience to reject hate and turn more towards love. His wife represents a Metal Element to him, which means she has a very important, somewhat crucial role to help him balance those emotions.
His way of expressing himself will divide people, that’s for sure, they might even say that he went a bit crazy, but this is just a way for him to deal with this enormous creative and intellectual energy. Strong Yang Fire usually represents ideas which are out of this world, therefore many people will struggle to understand his messages and will try to put him into a box, but he simply won’t fit any. From 2018 he also entered a new period, with more Metal, which will help him to reduce excessive Fire Element, resulting in overall more balance.
