WOOD (Chinese: 木, pinyin: mù)

Wood is the most human of the elements. It is the element of spring; the creative urge to achieve – which can turn to anger when frustrated. It is associated with the capacity to look forward, plan and make decisions, hence growth and expansion. Wood energy is rising, expanding, and is the force of growth and flexibility, hence the colour associated with Wood is green and a rectangular shape. This element represents all the activities of the body that are self regulating and/or function without conscious thought; i.e. digestion, respiration, heart beat and basic metabolism. The liver (converting food into fuel which is then supplied to the muscles, tendons and ligaments) is associated to the Wood element as well as the gallbladder. Wood represents as well the direction East, the planet Jupiter and is symbolized by an Azure Dragon. Wood ‘governs’ the Chinese Zodiac signs Tiger, Rabbit and Dragon. 

EARTH (Chinese: 土, pinyin: tǔ)

Earth is the element of harvest time, abundance, nourishment, fertility, and the mother to child relationship. This element is also regarded as central to balance and the place where energy becomes downward in movement, a change of seasons. It is the symbol of stability and being properly anchored. Represented by the colour yellow and a square shape, Earth’s motion is patient, reliable, logical, governed by service and duty to others, militaristic, stubborn, very energetic. Earth is associated with the digestive system, stomach (middle of the body), the spleen and is related to the sense of taste. Earth represents the direction Centre (Yellow Earth, China – Middle Land), the planet is Saturn, and is symbolized by the Yellow Dragon. Earth ‘governs’ the Chinese Zodiac signs Dragon, Rat, and Ox. Earth is the central balance of the elements and can lend qualities to all 12 animals as well.
