The Meaning of Water
If you don't know your Lucky Element, then you should find it from Your Rise and Fall Chart of Chinese Five Element Astrology application first. The Lucky Element is the secret key to reveal our Chinese astrology birth chart. The explanation of the Lucky Element is at the Chinese Astrology Five Element Basic Concept.
If we want to know how to Lucky Element Water bring us good fortune, we need to learn the meaning of the Water first. The Chinese character of the Water of the Five Elements (Wu Xing) is , which is a pictographic character of river. Characteristics of the Water are liquid, flowing, downward movement, turning movement, invasion, etc. It's not limited to Water matters. All transportations and logistics are in the Water category. It includes shipping, traveling, moving, driving, etc.
Chinese Five Elements theory is part of the Yin Yang philosophy. Water is distinguished by Yin (Female) Water and Yang (Male) Water. Yin Water is related to still water or slowly moving water. A small stream, pond, well water, drizzle, deep ocean water, and rain on the ground are Yin Water. Yang Water is fast-flowing water. Running water, river, waterfall, flood, cloud, rainstorm, ocean wave, and ocean flow are Yang Water.
Yin Water and Rat
Yin Water is the last element in the sequence of 10 Heavenly Stems. The one after Yin Water is Yang Wood of another new cycle. Yin Water is treated as a period of death and rebirth. Therefore, Yin Water is connected to strong memory.
Rat is the first animal sign of 12 Earthly Branches. In the Chinese Yin Yang theory, the even number is Yin and the odd number is Yang. The rat’s front leg has 4 toes and the hind leg has 5 toes indicating a change from an even number to an odd number. The Rat can cross over the Yin and Yang world. Therefore, Rat is considered a half-Yang and half-Yin animal.
The Five Element inside the Rat is Yin Water. Rat is ranked number one in one system and ranked the bottom in the other. Rat Hour is from 11:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m., Rat hour crosses two different days. It contains late night and early morning. Rat Month is December, the snow month of the winter. Yin Water is cold icy water. Rat is an unpredictable animal. We need to carefully choose Yin Water as the Lucky Element.
If a weak Yin Wood (grass) represents you and the Lucky Element is Water, Yin Wood might get frostbite or freeze to death by providing too much Yin Water. If a weak Yin Earth (farmland) represents you and the Lucky Element is Water, Yin Earth might become frozen soil when strong Yin Water appears. In this situation, we need Yang Fire (sun) to warm up cold Yin water before helping other elements.

How to increase the energy of the Water
If a Chinese astrology birth chart has a weak (lower score) Water, then the Water becomes the Lucky Element in most of the cases. To increase the energy of the Water around you will help to balance your Five Elements. However, too much Water might cause your Five Elements out of balance too.
Five Elements have Mother-and-Child supporting and Master-and-Slave fighting relationships. Metal is the Mother element of Water. Metal can protect and increase the energy of Water. Metal might be your second Lucky Element. That means you will be safe, comfortable in the Water and Metal environments. Water is afraid of Earth. Wood is the Child element of Water. Wood consumes the energy of Water. That means Wood and Earth environments weaken the Water. Therefore, to protect your Water, you should keep away Earth and Wood.
The attractive and fighting relationships of Heavenly Stems make the fortune prediction complicate. For example, Yang Water and Yin Fire together have love attraction in a relationship. The chemistry in love relationships is connected to the Wood. That connotes Yin Wood could become your Lucky Element. Yin Water and Yang Earth together have love attraction in a relationship. The chemistry in love relationships is connected to Fire. That implies that someone around could help you, but he walks away with someone he likes eventually.
Chinese people use Feng Shui elements to enhance the Five Element around us. If Water is the Lucky Element, we can choose a Pig or Rat mascot to decorate the room. We can have a fish aquarium inside the house. Some people have a swimming pool, water fountain or fish pond in the backyard. People might choose their residences at riverside, lakeside or beach.
We also can spiritually increase our Water energy. We can listen to music related to Water while meditation, relaxing or before sleeping. We can choose any sound or music related to rain, ocean waves, Waterfall, running water, or wind instruments. The following are the samples in the YouTube channels.
- Rain Sounds and Forest Sounds
- Music With Nature and Rain Sounds - Waterfall Rainforest
- Calming Ocean Sounds to Brighten your Day
