|The Wood-Type Personality in Chinese Astrology|
Wood Element in the Birth Chart
Wood-type people are kind, steady, sympathy-sharing, understanding and gentle. They like to help people and make donations.
The essence of Wood is a tree. The force inside the tree is like growing upward to the sky. Trees often compete with each other aggressively when growing up. Because of the characteristics of trees, Wood-type people are steadfast, organized, logical, practical, innovative, unique, assertive, fortitudinous, independent, challenging and direct. They like to plan things, take action, and go on adventures and challenges. They are perfectionists who tend to push themselves to the limit and seek out the best, and take first place in competition.
When their ambition and optimism is overwhelming, Wood-types can become upset, nervous, unstable, impatient, intolerant, and lose their humor by the frustration of many obstacles.
People lacking Wood essentially are weak in their opinions. They lack the determination to change their options when situations change. They are likely to be jealous when they don't have a strong viewpoint of their own.
People with excess Wood are often inflexible, prejudiced and biased. They tend not to accept or absorb others' opinions.
