Feng Shui
When Earth 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.

Loam, mud, rocks, stones, etc. included in this element. A terracotta pot filled with soil is a perfect earth element. Likewise, a statue is an excellent earth element—provided, of course, that it is made of the earth element; plaster, clay, marble etc. Earth is produced by fire and the earth energy can be amplified by lamps. But earth is destroyed by wood and earth can destroy metal. Therefore, it is a good idea not to have wood energy in land areas.

When Earth affects your zodiac 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.

The earth element primarily affects what you can call the down-to-earth. Here we are out in the safe, the rock-solid, which is reflected in the fact that the personality is characterized by being stable, down-to-earth, sincere, reassurance-seeking and modest. The person takes great care of his family, his friends, his savings etc.

These people are conservative in their approach, preferring to stick to the safe, the known rather than the uncertain, experimental. They are thus more homely people than social lions, although due to their loyal and devoted nature they often have a large circle of friends. Taking care of their security, they often work hard to ensure this and make a point of having a cosy, nice home.
