You may remember, that Years in the Gregorian Calendar ending with Six or Seven are under the influence of the Fire Element. Years Ending in Six are Bing 丙 (Yang Fire) and those ending in Seven are Ding 丁 (Yin Fire). If looking up a Birth Year, it is important to remember to check when New Year’s Day is, for someone born in January or February.
It would be important to keep in Mind the anatomical correlations of Fire. In the body, Fire correlates to the heart (Yin) and the small intestine (Yang), and also to the tongue and throat. Those born in Fire Years, or Years ruled by the Horse, Serpent, or Ram should pay careful attention to these organs. Fire has also been correlated to speech, sweat and laughter. It is said that Fire, when out of balance, can cause negative emotions such as anger, frustration, anxiety, insomnia, absent-mindedness, over-excitement, Shock, nervousness and tension, dizziness, light-headedness, mania or even heart and nervous disorders.
Those born in Bing 丙 (Yang Fire) Years can be empathetic, extroverted, attention-seeking, sociable and talkative. They are Energy and Passion. Many actors, singers and magicians were born in Yang Fire Years. Yang Fire people are often self-employed. They enjoy travelling.
Those born in Ding 丁 (Yin Fire) Years are generally creative people. Many artists were born in Yin Fire Years. They are constantly re-inventing themselves. Although innovative, they are highly accepting of others’ ideas. They do not fear risks.
