Confident, Loyal and Ambitious
List 3 of the worst traits of your astrological symbol that you believe do not pertain to you.
Unfortunately I think they all apply pretty well! Vain, stubborn, melodramatic, needs to be in the spotlight – yep!
What is your Chinese zodiac animal symbol?
In Chinese philosophy, The Theory of the Five Elements describes the interaction and relation of natural phenomena. The five elements of wood, fire, Earth, metal and water affect your zodiac sign. Which element are you? Find out here.
I used this site to find out – and I’m a metal monkey! Rock on.
Bonus: Briefly tell us something you found interesting about your Chinese zodiac as it pertains to the Five Elements.
Metal: “This category includes the Western idea of the air element. It is the force of gravity, the minerals within the earth, the patterns of the heavenly bodies and the powers of electrical conductivity and magnetism. Metal has structure, but it can also accept a new form when molten.
Metal energy is consolidating and with inward movement, like a flower closing its petals.
Represented by the colour white and round shapes, Metal’s motion is determined, forceful, strong, unyielding, self- reliant, reserved and sophisticated.
The symbol of metal is one of a cutting and reforming action, but it is also regarded as a solidifying process, hence it is associated with Autumn.
Metal is associated with the lungs, respiratory system and is related to the nose.
Metal represents the direction West, the planet is Venus, and is symbolized by the White Tiger.”
I hadn’t looked too deeply into the Chinese Zodiac before, I was mostly aware of my Western sign and had concentrated on that. It was interesting to see that I am metal rather than fire on this scale, and the words that jump out to me are “can also accept a new form”, “determined”, “planet is Venus” (I am very feminine) and that it’s associated with Autumn. I had thought Summer was more me – I need to think on this some more.
