10 Chinese Main Elements: Yang Fire – The element of ideas

Yang Fire is the element that gives everything and doesn’t expect much. It literally doesn’t need to receive anything in return for its endless capacity to give, which makes it very popular. It also makes it very independent. Yang Fires represent the sun – the original source of energy in our solar system. Hubs of creativity, they are out of the ordinary, as they are the producers of new, revolutionary ideas; this can make them seem unreal or look as if they live in illusion.

The best careers for this type of element are those where they can constantly provide new ideas and inspire people.

Yang Fires usually are very artistic, make good consultants, are imaginative and seem to be not from this World. Difficult to have reality, everything they do is showing. They can’t hide much, as the sun needs to shine, like to be a center of attention, don’t care for details. Yang Fires should not represent themselves, but link to partners, a team, company or mission, to balance their abilities, bring their ideas to reality and bring out the best in them.

Yang Fires cannot function on their own, they need a team of people, doers who will turn their ideas into reality. A big treat for them is if they don’t have enough space to be creative they can get mentally ill because their ideas are not manifested.

Yang Fires also have difficulties to feel other people so often their actions can be cruel and cold towards others.

The heaven’s emperor, the sun, burning brightly in the sky.
Eternally giving to earth and all the celestial planets,
You provide us energy for every breath and moment of life.
And what in return? The enjoyment of a simple reflection…
Your light shines bright on metal and water alike,
And you dance in the reflections they play back to you.
Your showmanship is something to behold,
Commanding our attention towards your great power and wonder.
To be sure, others in your universe cannot compare.
Not only to your daily magic show of light and beauty,
But to your powers of creativity and unearthly imagination, there is no other.
You are the light in the universe with limitless possibilities,
And there is no other who can replace you.
