The elements (also known as Wu Hsing) in Chinese Astrology, or Chinese culture itself, for that matter, are different from those of Western ones. The ones in Chinese Astrology consist of wood, fire earth, metal and water. Each of the animal years is subject to an element in a cycle (see The Four Pillars of Destiny). Each element is subjected to either yin or yang influence, thus forming the Ten Heavenly Stem.

Wood is characterized by the colour green and actually represents trees and forests. Wood personality types value their moral values and have confidence in what they do, are always striving for growth, be it physically, intellectually or emotionally, have varied and diversified interest and endeavours and are usually good company.

Fire is characterized by the colour red. Fire personality type people are usually born leaders, love adventures, is passionate about whatever then do, and tend to dominate those around them. These are people who can become aggressive if they are crossed. Yet, they are still good friends due to their passionate and warm nature.

Earth is characterized by the colour yellow. Earth personality type people are mild and introverted, fair in whatever they do, but may be too serious in their outlook. They are also the good planners and organizers as their logical minds grant them foresight and good deductive powers.

Metal is characterized by the colour white. Metal people are malleable, and are usually success-driven and will not give up even after multiple failures. They may sometimes be unreasonable, but they possess the strength and energy to change in their ways.

Water is characterized by the colour blue. Water personality type people are extremely flexible, more so than metal type, and are sensitive, even to the point of being mentally fragile. However, water people can be sensitive to others to, and thus have good communications and interpersonal skills.
