There are many combinations which occur within a birth chart, each representing some special feature or character trait. From our research, none of them is more sensual and attractive for the public eye than the combination between Yang Fire and Yin Metal.
A common theme for both of these Elements is that they tend to seek attention. Yang Fire likes to be in the center of attention, like a sun, providing sunshine and warmth to the surrounding planets. Though this won’t work if Yang Fire is weak, in that case, it might lack the necessary energy to affect people.
Yin Metal likes to shine, like a diamond, or a golden ring, being exposed under spotlight gives them satisfaction. If Yin Metal is somewhat dirty, like for example if there is a wet Yin Earth nearby, this effect will be lessened. Yin Metal needs Water to keep it clean in order to shine, which is one of their main purposes.
When these two Elements meet, like for example next to each other in the Stems, they tend to combine. A combination of Elements can produce another Element, which originally might not even exist in the chart. Yang Fire provides light and gentle warmth to Yin Metal and this process gives birth to Water Element, making Yin Metal shiny, like a piece of high-class jewelry, basking in its purity and glory, impressing and mesmerizing the people around. If Water Element is beneficial for the overall chart, it will create a powerful setup, one which can bring fame, money, and power to the person.
This combination also gives the person a strong sensuality and sex appeal, one kind of charisma which seems effortless to the people around. Most people are drawn to such radiation of sensuality, therefore such combination is very suitable for those who work in show-business. We found dozens of entertainers and generally famous people with such chart setup, here is a short list:
The list is endless, we could probably add another 30 worldwide known individuals with such setup.
To give you an example of how powerful this combination can be we can look into one of the most famous love affairs, the one between Marilyn Monroe and John F. Kennedy. They are both Yin Metal, therefore naturally inclined to seek public attention. JFK had very strong Yang Fire and direct combination with his Master Element. Marilyn was quite similar, a strong Yin Metal Master Element with a solid presence of Yang Fire and direct combination with it.
These two together created a very strong sensual bond, or we can call it chemistry. Even today, almost 60 years later, people are still fascinated by these two individuals and what was going on between them, although it was very brief and probably the actual affair didn’t last more than few days. The story about their affair never went away and it became an iconic display of a bond between a powerful man and a beautiful woman.
That being said, it doesn’t mean that if you have Yang Fire and Yin Metal in your chart that you will automatically have all these characteristics. Certain conditions need to be met. For those two Elements to produce Water the season of birth must be supportive. So for example, if the Chart is too hot, Water can’t be produced.
It works the best if the Master Element is either Yang Fire or Yin Metal and the companion Element is right next to it. Such a combination will be instant and highly noticeable for the people around.
Recently we had another mesmerizing combination which was driven by these two Elements, the one between Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. Although they are not in a relationship (or that’s at least official explanation) the chemistry between them in the latest movie and while on the stage performing is extremely strong, driving the audience crazy from all the excitement.
And that’s what successful combination of Yang Fire and Yin Metal does to people, and why its effect is so precious and glorified, by the media and audience.
The combination of Yang Fire and Yin Metal represents the highest level of glamour one can reach in our world, there is absolutely nothing else which can match its magical and mesmerizing effect.
