Most people wants to know whether they are smart and intelligent. Some people believe they are, genuinely while others don't think they are smart enough. What element governs intelligence?
It's Water. Water represents wisdom in the study of the Five Elements. Water's shape changes a thousand form. Water is formless and shapes according to whatever condition it is presented with. Water is deep and the bottom is unseen. Just like a person's thoughts cannot be seen - water is deep and infinite. Water is always on the move. Even in a still state, its particles move.
Yang (Ren) Water people like the water of the river and sea, are always on the move. Adaptive, intelligent and usually unable to stand or sit still. They are also usually extroverts, always have something on the boil but run the risk of becoming easily distracted and lacking focus. Ren Water types are adventurous people who enjoy robust activities. When they put their mind to it, Ren Water people are unstoppable! They are however often rebellious and dislike being made to conform.
Yin (Gui) Water people like the clouds and mist that drift and move, are usually also not the type to sit still. They make good teachers, since Gui Water's role is to water the plants, feed and grow a new generation. They are however usually introverts. Frequently imaginative and creative, they value principles and often think of the greater good. Gui Water people have one disadvantage and that is the lack of staying power with any endeavour.
And for other people who don't have water in their birthchart, their alternative element are as follows:
Earth - Metal
Metal - Water
Water - Wood
Wood - Fire
Fire - Earth
If you have at least one element of the intelligent element in your chart, you still have the capability to make money during your lucky years or during your 10-year lucky pillars, even though your ancestors were not buried at the right location.
