We will now discuss the Chinese element of Fire (火 huǒ). As we have previously discussed, The Chinese Elemental System comprises Five Elements. Unlike the Element of Wood. the correlations for Fire are very similar to those in Vedic and Western Thought, and, of course, the Flame Principle in Nova Thought.
Fire correlates to midday, South, and Summer. The Color is Red, and the Planet is Mars. The Sacred Animal is the Red Phoenix. You may remember that Red is the Color for the Tejas Tattva. The Zodiac Signs that correlate to Fire are the Horse (Yang), Serpent (Yin), and Ram (Yin). More information on Chinese Astrology will be covered later.
Fire implies adolescent qualities, such as passion and intense emotions. Those dominated by Fire can be empathetic, extroverted, attention-seeking, sociable and talkative. It also implies qualities such as Joy, Will-Power and Creativity.
Fire correlates to the heart (Yin) and the small intestine (Yang), and also to the tongue and throat. It has also been correlated to speech, sweat and laughter.
