This week’s Topics: Things with Edges
We are on to a new series which I am calling Geometry. This week our topic will be things with edges. Here is a brief definition of the word edge. Maybe it will help give you a clue.
- the outside limit of an object, area, or surface; a place or part farthest away from the center of something. “a willow tree at the water’s edge”
- the sharpened side of the blade of a cutting implement or weapon. “a knife with a razor-sharp edge”
- provide with a border or edge. “the pool is edged with paving”
- move gradually, carefully, or furtively in a particular direction. “she tried to edge away from him”

The Next Series – Five Elements/Seasons
- Wood / Spring – People who have strong energy of the Wood element have a clear vision and goals, and know how to bring them into being. They excel at planning and decision making. Their piercing, penetrating eyes may attract you. Color for wood is green.
- Fire / Summer – People with strong Fire energy may be quite charismatic. They excel at commanding others to action. They may love talking and socializing. Color for fire is red.
- Earth / Harvest – Someone with well developed Earth energy is a well grounded, nurturing, compassionate person, sometimes depicted as the archtypical “earth mother”. Earth people like to bring others together and make good mediators or peacemakers and reliable friends. They often enjoy both preparing food and eating. The color for earth is yellow.
- Metal / Fall – A person with well balanced Metal energy is well organized, self disciplined, and conscientious. They like structure in their life. They are most comfortable in situations when they know the rules and can succeed by following them. Metal Qi bestows a deep inner strength, like ore mined from the mountains. The color for Metal is white.
- Water / Winter – The Water energy is a strong generative force centered in the lower belly. When the Kidney Qi is strong, a person is fearless, determined, and can endure many hardships in pursuit of their goals. Persevering by will power is characteristic of those with strong Kidney Qi. The color for water is blue.
