They are often a bit round in shape, they easily becoming overweight and they cannot withstand moisture or damp. They like to socialize with people or animals, it doesn’t matter.
They want to please and do their best for others, that is their motivation to work. Then they can work very hard, although they would rather be lazy than tired.
They should be active and keep moving, especially in old age, but not too much at the same time. They start a bit slowly, like a diesel.
The Spleen and Stomach are the organs associated with this element, the ‘Ministers of the Granaries’. This makes them prone to digestive problems and it’s best to keep them slim.
When they are out of balance they make the character jump to the element Wood .
