The 5 Elements

METALWATERWOODFIREEARTH


The different elements in Chinese Horoscope provide the signs the degree of relationship with nature and how it affects and influences each sign. Elements provide the fundamental oriental philosophy of conducive and controlling interrelationships among the elements.
The element of your lunar sign, the year of your birth, as well as the time, month and country of birth, will exercise their influence on your life. The more elements you have, the better. The Chinese remedy for element deficiencies is simply to add missing or weak elements into the writing of a child's given name. Thus, they believe that a person's fate can be altered or bad luck neutralized by the placing of strong emphasis on certain characters in his name.
For Westerners, it would simply mean like if you lack Metal element, then you could wear gold or silver jewelry, Wood can be replaced by carrying a wooden charm or beads or plants in office and home. Earth element can be provided by same method or strengthened by wearing gemstones derived from hardened Earth or rock. For Water, you could choose residence near lake or coast. He can also choose to have an aquarium or small bodies of water at his home or office. Missing Fire can be represented by use of lights, candles or other forms of electricity or mirrors reflecting sunlight which can also produce Fire. Precious gemstones with red or orange colors can provide warmth or fire. Lastly, you can also choose to pick associate or partners strong in that missing element. Such relationships have a higher degree of success.
