Metal and Venus
According to the Connection of Five Elements and Five Planets, Five Elements applied to big Five Planets during the Early Han Dynasty (206 B.C. to 8 B.C.). Metal is connected to Venus. Venus is the brightest planet in the solar system. Chinese called it 太白 Tai-Bai, which means super white. That's why the color of white is connected to Metal.
Because of the high temperatures and atmospheric pressure, the winds on Venus are very powerful. At the top of the cloud layers on Venus, wind speeds reach 220 miles per hour. Winds move at up to 60 times the speed of Venus's rotation In the middle layer, the winds can reach speeds of 435 miles per hour. That’s faster than the tornado speed on Earth. Therefore, Metal is connected to the wind.
The thickening atmosphere slows the winds down on Venus's surface. The winds only move at 6 miles per hour, but the thick atmosphere can still kick up dust. The atmosphere of Venus is composed of 96.5% carbon dioxide. The outer portion is Yang and the inter portion is Yin. Therefore, Yang Metal is connected to the strong wind. Yin Metal is connected to carbon dioxide or dirty air. They are related to air. That's why the lung is connected to Metal.
Metal is connected to the air. When wind blowing through trees, then we know the wind is there. In Chinese I-Ching, the wind is connected to the tree. Yang Metal is a strong wind, quick flowing air current. Yin Metal can be the slow-flowing air current. We can see slow air movement through the fog. Therefore Yin Metal is connected to the fog.
The Sun rises in the west in Venus. The winds on Venus travel in a westerly direction, the same backward direction that Venus rotates. Therefore, the west orientation is connected to Metal. Furthermore, the Infinite Light Buddha (Amitabha) and the Pure Land of Western Paradise are in the Metal category.
Venus is the Roman goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation. In Chinese I-Ching philosophy, the symbol of the lake is connected to Yin Metal or , which means pleasure and happiness. In Chinese Five Element astrology, Yin Metal is related to fruit when Wood (tree) is next to it. Therefore, Yin Metal also represents a happy moment of good achievement.

How to increase the energy of the Metal
If a Chinese astrology birth chart has a weak (lower score) Metal, then the Metal becomes the Lucky Element in the most of the cases. To increase the energy of the Metal around you will help to balance your Five Elements. However, too much Metal might cause your Five Elements out of balance too.
Five Elements have Mother-and-Child supporting and Master-and-Slave fighting relationships. Earth is the Mother element of Metal. Earth can protect and increase the energy of Metal. That means you will be safe, comfortable in the Metal and Earth environment. Metal is afraid of Fire. Water is the Child element of Metal. Water consumes the energy of Metal. That means Water and Fire environment weaken the Metal. Therefore, to protect your Metal, you should keep away Water and Fire.
Yin Yang Five Elements, a.k.a. Heavenly Stems have attractive and fighting relationships. For example, Yang Metal and Yin Wood together have love attraction in a relationship. The chemistry in love relationships is connected to the Metal. That connotes Yin Wood could become your Lucky Element. Yin Metal and Yang Fire together have love attraction in a relationship. The chemistry in love relationships is connected to the Water. That implies Yin Metal cannot fully help you when Yin Fire is around.
One Characteristic of the Metal is to absorb the energy from outside toward inside. The energy moves towards the center of the Metal. Nuts, Seeds and Root vegetables are in the group of the Metal. Therefore, almonds, peanuts, cashews, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, carrot, potato, radish, etc. are very good for people whose Lucky Element is Metal.
Chinese people use Feng Shui elements to enhance the Five Element around us. If Metal is the Lucky Element, we can choose Monkey or Chicken mascot to decorate the room. We can put six, seven or eight symbols of Monkey or Chicken in the western corner. Or you can hang the paintings of monkeys or chickens on the wall.
We also can spiritually increase our Metal energy. We can listen to music related to Metal while meditation, relaxing or before sleeping. We can choose any sound or music related to healing bowels, wind chimes, crystals, or wind instruments. The following are the samples in the YouTube channels.
