animals, elements. and individual forces

Each animal corresponding to the elements represents one of the five forces. According to our astrological text:

The Vitality of the animals resides in the elements of the directions. The Vitality of the Tiger and the Hare is Wood, that of the Horse and the Snake is Fire. The Vitality of the Monkey and the Bird is Metal and that of the Rat and the Pig is Water. As for the Cow, the Sheep, the Dog, and the Dragon, all four have the Vitality of the Earth element.

This refers to working out the elements of the Sok. The text .continues, "The mother ol Vitality is called the La." The elements of the La are simply those that engender the elements of the iok. For example, the in element of the Horse is Wood, because Wood produces ] ,re, which is the Vitality element of the Horse.

The War.? ihanv element is the same as the element thai rules the year. For a person born in the year of the Metal Tiger, the Klemcru of Personal i'owei is also Metal.

This law brings to mind the rules of affinity for the animals; the animals that are grouped in a triad by the same Wind Horse are those that enjoy excellent relations. It should also be noted that enemy-animals are those whose Wind Horse elements are opposed. This is the case for the Dog (Metal), which has bad relations with Dragon (Wood)—Metal is the enemy of Wood.
