Interaction between 5 Elements

It is important to know the five Elements representation of Ying and Yang in the study of Bazi. The Five Elements represent the Earth’s vibrational energy.

Beginners may have the understanding of the Five Elements and identify them as some form of physical appearance. However, as you further study in Chinese Metaphysics, you will identify and interpret them asa form of vibrational energies.

The 5 Elements are Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water

The interaction among the elements can be viewed in terms of three cycle.

  1. Productive cycle denotes the principle whereby each of the elements produces or enhances to another specific element
  2. Weakening cycle refers to the manner in which the elements drain and deplete one another.
  3. Controlling cycle refers to the principles by which each of the element constrains or restricts another elements.

I am SH, a Chinese Metaphysics enthusiast, practitioner, consultant, life transformation coach and also the Founder of SH Astrology Consulting. Chinese Metaphysics such as Bazi and QiMen as always fascinated me. I am always amazed by how Bazi and QiMen could forecast the outcomes and relate encounters that a person can experience with great accuracy when it is being applied correctly. When it come to Feng Shui, the studying of the flow of Qi (Chi) energy can influences the environment around us.These energies can directly or indirectly affect how we operate and affect what we want to achieve. With proper practice, we can create opportunities that help us achieve our goals. SH Astrology was created to share my knowledge in BaZi and also some other Chinese Metaphysics systems like QiMen, Feng Shui, Yi Jing. I would also like to debunk some myths, and irrelevant concepts or beliefs in Chinese Metaphysic which cause confusion and fear in people’s life.
