Ah! awesome. I understood this stuff _very briefly_ as a teenager (just learning my signs and such) – but didn’t REALLY start to grasp it ’til I was playing Pokemon with my nephew and also his involvement with the Avatar:the last airbender series.
It was at that point I had to get over resisting elementals knowledge that I was avoiding for a long time. I don’t know why I was avoiding it but I was.
Anyway, because the interactions of the elementals in children’s fiction is *based upon* actual Chinese elementals moreso than English Medieval elementals, I suspect what they showed him in his game and shows is likely accurate enough to the gist of Chinese astrology.
Anyway, cool smile emoticon I learned something today.
[I wasn’t making a comparison btw – just showing the tremendous influence elementals knowledge has had upon culture in surprising ways]
