Beyonce - Five Elements Analysis of Character Traits and Talents

Yin Wood - Yi Wood 乙

NAME: Beyoncé

PROFESSION: Pop singer


DATE OF BIRTH: 4. September 1981







Master Element or ME is the central point of reference for every analysis. Interactions between ME and Five Elements shows us the strength and dynamic of Character ComponentsTalents, and Supertalents.

Beyonce was born on a Yin Wood day; therefore Yin Wood is her Master Element. In this analysis, we will refer to it as ME.

A Yin Wood born at the beginning of autumn is considered to be weak. In the fall the Metal element is the strongest, and in Five Element cycle Metal is controlling Wood.

But her hour of birth is early in the morning when Wood element is active; therefore this Yin Wood is not entirely weak, but still, it needs additional support.



Five Elements show us dynamics within the chart. It's better to have all Five Elements present, while entirely missing or having a fragile element, which is anything below 5%, will reflect poorly on our Character Components and Talents. An excessive Element, which is anything above 40%, can also be problematic.


A strong Metal element is the first thing we notice in Beyonce’s chart. Considering that she is Yin Wood ME, and Metal controls Wood, we might say that this is not very good combination, which is in one way correct, but with the help of other elements, notably Fire and Water, we can see how it turns into an exceptional chart.

All five Elements are present, which is very good. Fire Element seemed weak but positioned in such way that can bring a reasonable level of balance.


Metal and Water are cold elements, Fire and Wood are warm elements, while Earth usually follows the strongest one. With excessive Metal, we can definitely say that this chart is too cold.


This chart desperately needs Water and Fire the most. Wood might not be so helpful because it would clash with powerful Metal. That’s the fight which Wood can’t win here.

Earth element is pretty much exhausted here, while additional wouldn’t help much either, unless in combination with Fire or Water.


A person’s character consists of five main Components; those are MIND, BODY, CREATIVITY, WEALTH, and POWER.

We consider a prosperous chart when ME has access to WEALTH or POWER. The role of MIND and BODY is to provide support to ME and enhance other Components. CREATIVITY Component acts as a bridge, therefore in most cases is essential for chart flow.


When it comes to Character Components, this is pretty much one-way street, with POWER Component completely dominating her character.

Her Yin Wood wants to be influential, obtain POWER Component. Because it’s so out of balance, there is a risk of destroying itself, mainly because BODY and MIND are so weak.

We know that when she was younger, Beyonce went through tough times with strict father, depression and abusive relationships. When one has such strong POWER Component, it’s very likely that these kinds of things will happen. Stronger BODY and MIND Components are needed to protect herself from excessive POWER, and we will see how this works out in her Dynamic Talents section.

Probably you wonder how come her CREATIVITY Component is so weak, considering that she is one of the most famous pop stars in last ten years? Well, the key is in quality and proper placement, not so in quantity. We will address this in Special Features section.


In below graph, you will find the strength of each Talent and quality of its performance.

Six out of ten Talents are present in her chart, while five of them are performing very good, Director Talent is pretty much inactive.

Warrior Talent can be somewhat intimidating, can often be found in charts of army generals and top level politicians. When Warrior Talent is fully functional, it can bring political power to the person, an ability to influence and rally people, which she very much does, mainly through her creative work.

Beyonce is very much involved in various human rights activities, from feminism to promoting race equality. This character trait is typical of Warrior Talent which cares a lot about social justice and is ready to fight ferociously for it.

Although she is primarily a pop-singer, Warrior Talent helps her to use her creative abilities to promote political and social issues.

Performer Talent is present and very active. It seems not that strong, considering her performing abilities, but this Talent is converted into a Supertalent and creates an essential bond with Warrior, making it the best performing and the most useful Talent in her chart.

Competitor Talent is stable, which means that she is not afraid to confront her “enemies.”

Lack of Self-Esteem Talent, in combination with dominant Warrior, can be problematic. She might get bullied, therefore had to work a lot on her stability to be able to defend herself, either emotionally or physically.


The strength of each Talent is not the only factor in determining its impact. To understand their functionality entirely, we have to see whether they cooperate or disturb other Talents. Cooperations between Talents are vital for having a good chart flow. Even the weakest Talent can have a crucial impact if appropriately positioned or combined positively.

In Beyonce case, there is a simple yet powerful dynamic between Talents. ME (Yin Wood) is producing Performer Talent, which represents her creative and musical skills. Furthermore, Performer combines well with Warrior Talent, creating a powerful bond between these three.

This bond represents that through her creative skills, in her case singing, she obtains power and influence.

We can see that Wealth Talents are not involved at all in this dynamic. Wealth comes as a side product of Beyonce’s creative work but is not a primary focus. Performing on stage and being able to influence people is her main drive, money is a just logical result of her creative talent.

All this being said, there is still one component missing to make this combination work. Metal is a big driver in this chart, but it needs to spend its excessive energy more efficiently to make it a great chart.

That part we will cover in Dynamic Talents section.


Every ten years each person is influenced by an additional set of elements, bringing dynamic to the static chart, therefore causing people’s destiny to go up and down all the time.

The most prominent issue in Beyonce’s chart is extreme Metal. There are several ways to reduce Metal element. For example, Wood Element would give Metal something to do. Problem with Wood, in this case, it might cause a lot of clashes, which would disturb the flow, and it could result in health issues for her.

Fire can control Metal, but there is no amount of Fire which would be able to gain control over such sturdy Metal, so this is also not such good solution.

What can work well here is Water. Metal produces Water; therefore Metal can lose some of its excess energy, while Water can make her Yin Wood stronger and more resilient. Water solves multiple problems in this chart, making it fully functional.

Although Beyonce was very successful even before 2001, from that year her career skyrocketed, and a year later she started her solo career.

The reason why she was able to become independent is that she entered 20 years of Water period, from 2001 to 2020, putting her Metal in full production mode.

Although her chart is quite cold, Water is still highly beneficiary because it puts things in motion.

Problem with these kinds of charts is lack of Fire and general instability. Beyonce has to rely a lot on good periods, and when the wrong combination hits her, she might experience a lot of issues, like depression, or relationship problems.


Beyonce experienced a lot of ups and downs in her life. From a strict father, abusive relationships, depression, etc. This is quite normal for out of balance charts, but thanks to her determination she got best out of it. Many would probably give up half way, but she fought ferociously for her career, like a real Warrior.

It will be interesting to see how things will develop for her after 2020 when she goes out of Water period and enters Earth, which represents money and business to her, which is good, but her Metal will lose its output, which will create a major shift in her life.


At the moment of our birth, roughly 30.000 people around the globe will receive exact element combination as we did. So the logical question is, how come that these famous people from our examples are so successful, the others are not?

If somebody is born, for example, with a superb chart for generating wealth, their level of success will depend a lot on their place of birth. Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs, and Bill Gates, for example, were born in surrounding with a lot of opportunities and culture for creating large businesses. Somebody with the same chart, but born in the poor area, will have far fewer opportunities to exercise their ability to generate wealth. Still, it's very likely that they will reach a reasonable level of success, but their surrounding will limit it.

Place of birth is not the only thing making a difference, our parents genetic, community culture, parents upbringing and formal education will shape significantly our ability to use given talents.

Despite all these conditions, the core of our talents will always be there, and it's just a question how far they can be extended. So regardless of our chart, hard work, life experience, open-mindedness and a good education is still very important to unlock our full potential.
