The characteristics of Yang Wood are upright, steady, unyielding, stubborn, and benevolent. Yin Wood is related to grass, vine, flower, tiny plant or tender plant. The characteristics of Yin Wood are quiet, docile, steadfast, endurable, and peaceful. When Yin Wood is the weed, it can speedily spread over the hill. When Yin Wood is the vine, it can climb over the tall walls.
The Characteristics of Wood
Besides water, trees or grass need the right amount of sunlight and soil to grow. Yang Wood is a tall tree, which needs lots of soil to grow tall. Lots of tall trees are found in the mountain. A tall tree needs a deep root to stand strong. If Yang Wood is the Lucky Element, we need to see any root on the ground first. If Yang Earth is around, then Yang Wood will become upright, strong, and outstanding. It brings people better luck during the spring.
The attractive relationships of Heavenly Stems sometimes make the situation complicate. When Yang Wood meets Yin Earth, they have love attraction in a relationship. The chemistry in love relationships is connected to the Earth. That means the Yang Wood could transform into Wood. Yin Earth is connected to wet soil, garden soil or farmland. Yang Wood cannot grow tall there. We can put it this way, one boy (Yang Wood) moves to his girlfriend (Yin Earth) home town because that he fells in love with her. In this case, Yang Wood cannot be a Lucky Element.
Yin Wood is grass, vine or flower. Yin Wood might get frostbite or freeze to death during the cold weather. Too much water won't help Yin Wood. The hydroponic plants can survive in the river, but cannot have a permanent home. However, grass can survive under the strong wind, which might uproot a giant tree.
Yang Metal is connected to the Wind. The seeds of Yin Wood need the wind (Yang Metal) to spread over the ground. According to the attractive relationships of Heavenly Stems, Yin Wood and Yang Metal have love attraction in a relationship, which chemistry is Metal. That means a girl (Yin Wood) married to the gentleman (Yang Metal). This love relationship could transform Yin Wood into the Metal. That implies the Lucky Element Yin Wood won't be helpful if the Yang Metal is around.
When Yin Wood is the vine or flower, it cannot grow tall. However, it can climb on the tall tree (Yang Wood) or tall wall (Yang Earth). When Wood is the Lucky Element, the best scenario is both Yang Wood and Yin Wood appear in your astrological cycles.
