As the fundamental part of the Oriental Philosophy, those elements are divided into Conducive and Controlling interrelationships.

The meaning of Conducive interrelationship is that these elements will produce one another and help nourish each other:

  • You get Fire from Wood – Fire is produced from burning Wood.
  • You get Earth from Fire – everything that is burned by Fire become ashes (earth).
  • You get Metal from Earth – all Metal has to be extracted from the Earth.
  • You get Water from Metal – when heated, metal will change into liquid.
  • You get Wood from Water – Water nourishes plants, thus producing Wood.

From Metal we get Water, from Water we get Wood, From Wood we get Fire, From Fire we get Earth, From Earth we get Metal.

The meaning of a Controlling interrelationship is that any of these elements can control or be destroyed by another element:

  • Earth controls (or you can say weaken or destroy) Water – Water is absorbed by the Earth.
  • Water controls Fire – Water is used to put out Fire.
  • Fire controls Metal – heat of Fire can melt Metal.
  • Metal controls Wood – we use Metal blade to chop down trees.
  • Wood controls Earth – trees draw nourishment out of the Earth

We see that no one element in Chinese astrology can be called strongest or weakest. Like the Chinese astrology Yin and Yang they are forever dependent on one another and are equal.

Even in our human body, all of these elements maintain their reciprocal relationship. In Chinese acupuncture and medicine, the five major organs of our body is ruled by these elements. Metal is linked to the lungs, our heart is controlled by Fire, Water is associated with the kidneys, Wood is identified with the liver and Earth is for the pancreas and spleen.

Therefore a Chinese doctor, acupuncturist or herbalist has to keep these relationships in mind when treating an illness. For example, if the Earth (pancreas) is affected, then the Metal (lungs) is also weakened. When the Water (kidney) malfunctions, it cannot produce its counterpart, Wood. And therfore the Wood organ (liver) will begin to deteriorate.
