In the Five Element system, Water generates Wood. Spring unfurls from the cold stillness of winter and bursts into vibrant, expansive growth. The Yin and Yang Organs associated with the springtime, and with the element of Wood, are the Liver and Gallbladder. Wood is strongest when it can flex and bend with the winds of change.
