The Metal element is seen in the Fall when the trees let go of their leaves and plants die. The emotion is grief. The color is white. Metal is the letting go of things we do not need. It is rhythm. It is our connection to the heavens as well as the spirit of our physical.
The metal energy drops. Space. Respect. Quality.
Some people who are "metal" may seem aloof. They may look white and make remarks that "cut". Perhaps they feel at home in the majestic woods or a church. They may collect things of quality but not feel clean or worthy themselves.
