Feng Shui
When Metal Harmonizes Chi Energy

Feng shui has as its essence that the Chi energy is neither too strong nor stagnant. An important tool is the five elements. Since everything in the universe is categorized according to the five elements, the interaction between the five elements – supporting, draining, destructive – is used to harmonize the Chi energy.

The metal element consists of silver, copper, bronchus, steel etc. This element is easy to use in feng shui, as metals are part of many different things. Remember that feng shui prefers round and beautiful things – not sharp and uneven things. The metal element is often used to contain the sometimes negative earth energies. Ideally, the goal is to use feng shui in your home so that you do not immediately recognize the individual feng shui remedies, but that these are included as a natural part of the home. The colors white, silver, gold can be used instead of the metal element.

When Metal affects your animal sign

Your animal sign is calculated from your time of birth. Since every time in the Chinese almanac is associated with a weight distribution of the five elements, the description of who you are based on your year animal – the animal sign for your year of birth – will be nuanced when looking at the weight distribution of the five elements for your birthday and hour of birth.

Metal is a strong element, which can be shown by the person not being afraid to defend themselves and others. Or by the fact that the person has a will and strength of steel, is stable and at times unyielding. This can also result in the person being competitive and has the courage of his opinions. Or that the person is generally a strong person who protects his family and friends.

Metal is also a cold element, which can affect the person so that he rarely shows emotions and may appear reserved. The metal element can also cover up that the person has a metal armor on the outside, but is really scared and insecure inside.
