Wood represents the beginning phase of growth of any cycle or relationship. Like springtime, this part of any cycle is when everything is growing at its fastest rate. When we are in the springtime of a relationship, it feels like the upward surging growth will never end or even slow down.
Within our consciousness, wood represents how we assert ourselves. This is where we develop the power of our will. The nobility of our ideals, the magnificence of our dreams, and the thoroughness of our plans give depth and breadth to our character. These are sacred parts of character that must be developed if we are to be whole. The liver and gallbladder are the organs of the element of wood.
