Chinese astrology famous horoscope readings of the century - DAVID SIMON Creator of The Wire

18 DAVID SIMON Creator of The WireDavid Simon (born 1960) is an American author, journalist, and a writer/producer of television series, including The Wire. As a journalist he worked for the Baltimore Sun City Desk for over a decade. He also wrote Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets and co-wrote The Corner: A Year in the Life of an Inner-City Neighbourhood with Ed Burns, which also became a TV Series.

Back to basics

The biggest thing you will notice about this Chinese horoscope reading is that we do not have a date of birth, only the year as 1960. Not wanting to be defeated by a technicality I am reminded of the original system of Four Pillars of Destiny, which used just the year to define a person’s character and tendencies, which is what we will do now.

Born in the year of a Metal Rat he is able to see the bigger picture and express his thoughts in a way that brings spectacular results. Hence creating several hit TV series from writing or co-writing novels.

The Metal aspect denotes an authoritative and imposing façade which appears expressionless on the surface but is highly sensitive and somewhat volatile within. If it wasn’t for writing he could have probably become an entrepreneur or CEO of a large company, perhaps working in communications or travel. An agile mind allows him to adapt and thrive in most situations and if he learns to trust and delegate to others he would be extremely successful.

The Rat’s characteristics are somewhat similar being cautious, careful, creative, accumulative, lustful, hoarding and doubting. However, together they make a very creatively expressive personality. Honour and truthfulness also figures prominently in his personality.

To a Metal Rat the wood element represents wealth and relationships and in 1994 a Wood Dog year he co-wrote a teleplay for Homicide: Life on the Street was aired.

In 1995 a Wood Pig year he would have had to rethink projects and probably work harder in this tear than he had in the previous.

Turning The Corner?

1996 a Fire Rat year he had recognition and he returned to write many more teleplays for Homicide. This success continued until 2000 a Metal Dragon year. As Dragon is part of the same group as Rat he became executive producer of another TV series called the Corner. This was based on the book The Corner: A Year in the Life of an Inner-City Neighbourhood he previously co-authored with Ed Burns in 1997. That was a Fire Ox year that brought power and support as well as teamwork indicated by the Rat / Ox being one of the 6 combinations in Chinese astrology.

Interestingly, this pairing provided the inspiration for The Wire which was based on his co-authors career as a homicide detective. It was brought to HBO because of his experience with The Corner in 2000.

Return of the Ox

chinese astrology David SimonThe Wire aired June 2, 2002 and ended on March 9, 2008. Surprisingly 2002 was a Water Horse year which clashed with his Rat perhaps bringing problems to his local environment. On the plus side the month was still a Wood Snake denoting wealth and recognition and the day of airing was another Ox, mostly auspicious as this is where he got the inspiration from.

In 2011 the Metal Rabbit year brings wealth opportunities and lots of competition. Although, the Rabbit and Rat forms a punishment there may be some arguments in the second half of the year. 2012 will be a much better year as the Water Dragon brigs natural creativity and being free to write whatever he likes as well as an excellent standard of life.

If you know David Simon and can provide his birth details i will revisit and add more this reading. After writing this piece

I would like to express my gratitude to Master Xu Zi Ping, who in the Song Dynasty (960-1279 AD), made a revolutionary improvement by using the Day Stem to represent the person.

Chinese astrology should be an integral part of a feng shui consultation, as it allows us to analyse the strength and composition of a person’s energy in any given time period. As there are almost thirteen million different Chinese astrology charts, we can be extremely specific and support or enhance the exact type of qi that enables a person to be happy, less stressed and more successful in all they do. We can create the ultimate nurturing atmosphere within a home or office by recommending colour, shape, fabrics and placement– now that’s feng shui that works!
