The Rise of Billie Eilish

I have to admit I don’t follow much the music industry lately, I’m kind of old school, preferring classics from the 70s and 80s. But due to the nature of my job, which is basically recognizing and analyzing talents among famous people, I have to keep an eye on young musicians as well. My very good friend pointed out to me the new rising star in the music scene, Billie Eilish. At first, I didn’t understand what the big fuss was, but after watching a few live performances I realized that she is really talented, especially the way how she uses her voice, which reminded me a lot of Thom Yorke, from Radiohead.

Billie grew up in LA and is coming from a media-orientated background, with both parents in the entertainment industry. She produced her music in her bedroom at home, with her brother Finneas O’Connell since early childhood.

Billie and Finneas write and produce the songs together and Billie describes Finneas as “her best friend”. Not only do they work well they perform and tour and genuinely have fun hanging out together.

Finneas is the musician but also contributes to vocals, he plays guitar and keyboards live but is the technical wizard responsible for some of the intricate layers and cuts on the vocal mixes he produces.

The Yin Wood Master Element: Creativity and Adaptability

Billie Eilish was born as a Yin Wood Master Element, a symbol of creativity, adaptability, and growth. This element is associated with qualities that allow her to thrive in the ever-changing music industry. The interaction with Metal Elements at the top of her chart indicates that she has access to the Power Component, a crucial factor in her rise to fame.

The Support System: Brother and Mother

But Billie’s success isn’t just about her individual talents. Her chart reveals that she has a strong support system in place, particularly with her brother Finneas. The Rabbit under her Yin Wood, carrying another Yin Wood Element, indicates that Finneas provides support and assistance in her life and career. Furthermore, the presence of Water Element in her monthly pillar suggests that her mother plays a role in her career, possibly as a mentor or guide.

The Philosopher Talent: Unconventional and Unique

The Yin Water Element is associated with the Philosopher Talent, which often manifests as unusual or unique personalities, as well as an affinity for unconventional hobbies or interests. This talent is reflected in Billie’s quirky fashion sense and her willingness to push boundaries in her music.

The Performer Talent: Fire Element and Snake

Finally, the Snake brings the Fire Element, which serves as an Output Component for Billie, specifically contributing to the Performer Talent. This suggests that her performances and artistic expression are closely tied to her inner nature and personality. The Fire Element is associated with passion, energy, and creativity, all of which are essential qualities for a performer like Billie.


Billie Eilish’s success can be attributed to a combination of her unique personality traits, talents, and the strong connections and collaborations within her family. The BaZi analysis reveals a complex web of elements and patterns that contribute to her fame, from her creative and adaptable nature to the support system provided by her brother and mother.
