The Five Elements

The Elements or Transformative Processes that modify the animal signs repeat every five ears.  They add qualities that reinforce or alter the year-animal’s characteristics:


The element of metal makes things solid and clear. It gives form. Metal will make something more dependable, or, conversely, exaggerate its fixed or conservative qualities.


The element of water makes things flow, dissolving fixities. It makes a stubborn sign adaptable, but may make an adaptable sign overly diffuse.


The element of Wood marks beginnings. Its makes things open, firm and able to carry a load. Wood will fix a mercurial quality but ma intensify the tendency to materialism.


The element of Fire makes things adventurous and charismatic. It displays essential qualities but bay exhaust resources and intensify impulsiveness.

The Element of Fire teaches us about the dynamic power and energy of the life-force - the spark of Divine fire that resides in each and every one of us. This force calls us daily towards the light, and awakens us from our slumber.

Fire purifies, burns and destroys the ‘old’ so that the ‘new’ may emerge.

Creative fire teaches us spiritual fortitude.

The Lightening flash, the ultimate fire, brings unprecedented spiritual growth and soul illumination.


The element of Earth stabilizes and realizes things. Its gives a methodical, reliable, and compassionate quality but can become very dull and plodding.
