Metal Element in the Birth Chart
Metal-type people are righteous, faithful, gallant and chivalrous. They like to
know and help people.

Metal is the substance in which internal particles squeeze and condense


together. There is a force from the outside to the inside that keeps Metal hard.
Metal reflects light, so it is shiny. It may have a clear sound when it's hit.
Therefore, a Metal-type person has great strength, discipline and enough
courage to aid needy people, which may make them famous.

Metal people are brave, disciplined, trained, organized, authoritative,


determinative, routine, firm, resolute and have an urge to win. They have a
large sense of honor. They like to spread their fame. They are sensitive in grief
and sadness.

People that lack Metal are quiet, cautious and nervous. They tend to think too
much, and cannot make quick decisions. They do not express what is on their
minds in public, but will complain about something afterwards.

People with excess Metal are often unkind and destructive. They are brave but
may have no resourcefulness and no intelligence. They have little grace and
6 no
mercy. They do not keep secrets.
Water Element in the Birth Chart
Water-type people are smart, wise, frank, and resourceful. They
have good memories and think before they leap.

There are two types of Water: Floating Water and Still Water.
Floating Water makes people active and restless and feel like
traveling. Still Water makes people clam and peaceful.

People lacking Water are unstable, cowardly, narrow-minded, and


have no stamina. They lack intellect, good sense, understanding,
and foresight. They also tend to keep changing their mind.

People with excess Water are smart, sly, tricky and plot dark
schemes. They like to move or travel around and have a sensual
life. They are likely to dream too much, and keep changing their
mind as well. They also are only interested in what concerns them
and have no interest in outside world affairs.
7
Wood Element in the Birth Chart
Wood-type people are kind, steady, sympathy-sharing, understanding and gentle.
They like to help people and make donations.

The essence of Wood is a tree. The force inside the tree is like growing upward to
the sky. Trees often compete with each other aggressively when growing up.
Because of the characteristics of trees, Wood-type people are steadfast, organized,
logical, practical, innovative, unique, assertive, fortitudinous, independent,
challenging and direct. They like to plan things, take action, and go on adventures
and challenges. They are perfectionists who tend to push themselves to the limit and
seek out the best, and take first place in competition.

When their ambition and optimism is overwhelming, Wood-types can become upset,
nervous, unstable, impatient, intolerant, and lose their humor by the frustration of
many obstacles.

People lacking Wood essentially are weak in their opinions. They lack the
determination to change their options when situations change. They are likely to be
jealous when they don't have a strong viewpoint of their own.

People with excess Wood are often inflexible, prejudiced and biased. They tend not
to accept or absorb others' opinions.
8
Fire Element in the Birth Chart
A Fire-type person is courteous, eloquent, polite and
expressive. They are good at compliments in speech.

Fire people are energetic, artistic, passionate, easily excitable,


and have a tendency to rapidly change emotional states as
well as become aggressive. They love sensation, drama and
sentiment. They seek joy, gratification and the attention of
others. They like to be invited to a party and dislike being
alone.

People lacking Fire are aggressive but have no persistence.


They are inclined to have little confidence and have plenty of
worries.

People with excess Fire are often talkative, overstated,


overexcited, overheated, sweet-talking, smart and restless.
They tend to lecture and offend others because of their short 9
Earth Element in the Birth Chart
Most Earth-type people are trustful, steady, loyal and responsible. They are
honest, religious, reliable, and keep their promises.

The characteristics of Earth are standing still, being slow and steady, and
stationary. Therefore the Earth people don't like to move their body and change
their mind too often. They are honest, trustworthy, and responsible. They also
have good faith. They can sit in one position for a long time. They accept
religion since they like rumination and meditation. They are slow to react. They
like to collect things, and enjoy their collectables at home, but not outdoors.

People lacking Earth are selfish, insincere, and self-indulgent. They tend to
ignore other people's opinions. They might take immediate advantage of others
unethically. They don't care about the people around them and do not keep
their promises.

People with excess Earth are stubborn, inflexible, cheap, lonely, plain and
simple. They cannot keep their word either.
