Jeremy Lin played basketball with dad and brothers by learning from NBA video when young. He chose to enter Harvard University because of athletic scholarship offer after declined by Stanford University. He helped Harvard to set numerous basketball records of wins. But Lin went undrafted in the 2010 NBA Draft. Golden State Warriors signed two-year deal with him in 2010. Lin also signed a three-year contract with Nike. Lin didn't perform well during his rookie NBA season. He, as a bench player, finished averaging 2.6 points on 38.9 percent shooting in 29 games in 2010.

Lin worked to improve his jump shot during NBA offseason. After the 2011 NBA lockout, On December 12, 2011, Warriors waived him to the Houston Rockets. Without playing a season game, the Rockets waived Lin on December 24. That's very sad news to him before Christmas. The New York Knicks claimed Lin off waivers to be a backup guard with a non-guaranteed contract on December 27. He played only a few minutes per game. Then Lin was assigned to play at Development-League. Knicks considered releasing Lin to sign another new player. Lin will be out of job, if Knicks released him before February 10, 2012. So Lin slept on his brother's couch in a one-bedroom apartment in Manhattan. On January 20, he won the victory for the team in D-League with 28 points, 11 rebounds, and 12 assists, which brought the attention to Knicks.

Knicks had very poor starting record in the 2012 season. Due to the injury problems of players and the absent of powerful forwards, Lin was recalled as a starting guard. On February 4, the first day of the year of the Dragon, Lin had 25 points, five rebounds, and seven assists in the victory over New Jersey Nets. Then he brought six consequent victories over Utah Jazz, Washington Wizards, Los Angeles Lakers, etc. He set a scoring record of 136 points in his five career starts since the NBA-ABA merger of 1976. The Lin-sanity started after the victory over Jazz and now the phenomenon spreads from New York, USA, Asia and the entire sports world.

Lin is from a Christian family and has strong faith in God. He and his family discussed issues of the lure of money, women and luxury life in NBA before letting him try the NBA career. He encountered many frustrations in his basketball career. He believes that God always guides him his path. He said his faith in God triggered Lin-sanity. Jeremy Linís Cinderella fairy story touches millions of people's heart. His determination, his toughness and his faith encourage people looking for good luck. His intelligence, humbleness and success from underdog win many respects and compliments. The Lin-sanity was estimated to bring hundreds of millions business value.

Jeremy Lin was born on the Male Metal Dog Male Metal day in the Metal Monkey month of the Earth Dragon Year. The upper row of the Day Column is called Day Master (or Day Stem) and represents the person. Therefore, Male Metal Male Metal represents Lin himself. Dog in Day Column and Dragon in Year Column are in the Earth group and mainly contain Earth. There are four Male Earth in the birth chart. So Earth is strong. Monkey in the Month column is in the Metal group. Lin was born in the autumn and Metal is the strongest element in the fall. There are three Male Metal and one Female Metal in the birth chart. Therefore, Metal is even stronger than Earth. Earth is the Mother element of Metal. Since Metal is very strong, Lin has a good health and he is strong-minded.

Chinese astrology is talking about Five Elements. In general,

Cow, Sheep, Dog and Dragon are Earth.
Chicken and Monkey are Metal.
Rabbit and Tiger are Wood.
Rat and Pig are Water.
Horse and Snake are Fire.

To be more accurate,

Dog contains Male Earth, Female Metal, Female Fire.
Dragon contains Male Earth, Female Water, Female Wood.
Monkey contains Male Metal, Male Water, Male Earth. (more details)

From the Five Stars theory, we know that

  • Metal is the Companion Star
  • Water is the Fame Star
  • Wood is the Money Star
  • Fire is the Career Star
  • Earth is the Parent Star

The Five Stars can be distinguished by Yin and Yang, and are derived into 10-God Relationships.
We have Jeremy Lin's 10-God Relationship Chart on the right.

Two Male Earth, Baby SitterGuardian Star, appear in the Year Column. Parents had to hire a baby-sitter or relative to take care Lin, when Lin was young. Or Lin has a God-mother. Another sign is that Lin has to leave home town away from parents for living.

Two Male Metal, Friend or Sibling Friend Star, appear in the Month Column. Lin has many siblings and friends. He might have to take care of sibling or friend's family. His marriage might be late, because there is a competition among friends when a girl appears,

Wood is weak in Year and Month Columns. Wood is connected to money. Lin's family was probably not very rich when he was born. Wood also represents woman to Lin. The Dog in the Day Column represents his marriage and spouse. Male Earth in the Day Column is the opposite element to Wood. That's another sign of late marriage. His spouse will likely have her own career and won't stay home as a housewife.

Earth is related to religion. The Earth is strong in the birth chart. So Lin must have a strong faith in religion. The strong Earth people always keep promise.

Since we don't have birth time, we don't know the exact Lucky Element. But according to the Five Element Balance theory, Metal and Earth have too much weights in the birth chart. Therefore, we can say Metal and Earth are unlucky elements. We can assume Water as the Lucky Element, because Water can release the energy of strong Metal.

Water is the Child Element of Metal. Water is something out of Metal. Water connected to Lin's outlook, performance, expression, freedom or reputation.

Wood brings him wealth. Fire is related to his career or pressure. Metal helps him spend money. Earth increases his faith. Water is connected to north. The northern side of birth place makes him famous. Wood is connected to East. The eastern side of a continent makes him rich.
