WOOD is spring time and the upward energetic movement of sunrise: it is all the greens, vertical stripes and plants large and small.

The time of day which is governed by the wood element is from 5am to 7am and from 9 am to 11am, during the hours of the Tiger and Rabbit respectively.

WoodWOOD supports FIRE as fuel in a mother child relationship, yet controls and breaks up EARTH.

In numerology and Nine Star ki, wood is attributed to the numbers 3 and 4.

The Trigrams of SUN and CHEN are also associated with wood, but refined into softer, more gentle type and a stronger larger harder type for the eldest brother, big wood!

You can see clearly from this brilliant example how the water element is directly influencing the look and feel of this leaf.
