Yesterday we described Wood people in Feng Shui terms. Today, we will describe qualities of Yang Wood people in the 4 Pillars of Destiny.
Yang Wood or Jia, is compared to the oak tree. Jia expresses the living aspect of continuous growth, upward and outward. It indicates a hard worker and industrious effort. Jia people are highly motivated, always “growing” ideas.
Jia Wood is a person of principle. With strong roots, Jia has a strong foundation that results in stability. Their roots make them literally, down-to-earth with a strong character. Jia people usually like to stay rooted. Moving makes them feel ungrounded.
The tree’s canopy of leaves provides shade from sweltering heat and cover from the rain. This translates into the qualities of benevolence and compassion as they provide cover. Jia is patient and kind, always ready to lend a helping hand.
The oak tree is upright, sturdy, forthright, stern, tough and hard to bend. If the self element is strong in the birth chart, the person is inflexible and rigid to the point of being difficult. They are susceptible to mental problems caused by heavy pressure or depression. This is because it is harder for Yang Wood people to minimize the blow from compromising and adjusting themselves to the environment. They are good number two people as they like to work behind the scenes.
Wood people have the exceptional skill to use all other elements, so they are adept at making good use of other people to grow their ideas.
Jia people have the need to be the tallest tree. What happens to the tallest tree? It gets cut down first! This makes them susceptible to destructive people. Wood provides many resources; i.e. to make fire, furniture, paper and food. Everyone sees the tree as a resource and want to turn Wood into profit. Some Jia people make others rich!
To get the full understanding of each Wood person, we must factor in the hour, day, month and year of birth as each one is complex. More on wood, click here.
Yang Wood people include Nobel Prize winner in Economics, Mr. John Nash – depicted in the movie, “A Beautiful Mind”, Whitney Houston, Elvis Presley and Britney Spears.
“If you’re moving through dark times, dig deep and take heart…you will undoubtedly come out the other side knowing more about yourself, and having grown. Trees with the deepest roots have the greatest chance not only of continually growing and moving toward the light but also of reflecting it in all directions.” Dolly Parton
“Suffering is the mud in which the lotus grows.“
Tich Nhat Hanh
