Never stopping until they reach their goals, metal people are vigorous, strong, ambitious, domineering and self-motivated. They are heroic and generous, always extending a helping hand to someone in need; responsible, disciplined; patient and loyal to their friends, going the extra mile to build good relationships with the people around.
Metal types are people who have a balance of yin and yang, making them neither extroverted nor introverted, always able to maintain a temperate manner. They are extremely wise, stable and methodical, often business-oriented well organised. They are able to understand and appreciate the richness and luxuries of life, enjoying the good things, often feeling satisfied with where they are in their lives, accepting that there are times where they just have to let go of certain things, and move on with their life, leaving any attachments behind. Just like how metal has the ability to conduct electricity, people of the metal element experience strong impulses and generative powers that allow them to bring about change and transformation to those they come in contact with.
The negative emotion associated with metal is grief and the idea of “letting go”, which occurs when there is an energy imbalance, whilst the positive emotion is courage. A metal person works hard and is able to work through setbacks and hardships to achieve what they set out to accomplish. However, the inability to relax unless everything is perfect can cause an imbalance of energy, making them feel upset and negative, resulting in self-doubt. Without the ability to perceive their loss and grief, metal types end up becoming clingy and envious, allowing their past hurt to damage their present relationships and making it difficult for them to form bonds with others.
Metal types are prone to respiratory problems such as asthma, bronchitis, shortness of breath, cough, sore throat, diarrhoea, constipation and even skin problems such as eczema and psoriasis (a skin condition that causes red, itchy patches).
