Thank you for sharing this. I'm going to "the end of the line" to post my results and speculations. Thanks again.

Hour: Metal Goat
Inner element: Earth
Elements: Wood/1 Fire/2 EArth/5 Metal/2 Water/2
Just by glancing and taking a half educated guess, I'm going to speculate that the "houses", or areas that are influenced by compatible animals are areas that will be more favorable in one's life and by the same token, the flip side is the areas that have adverse or incompatible signs will be more troublesome(?) areas in one's life? Anyway, my health is ruled by Horse, and Rats are supposed to run away from horses! ugh! OH! Another irony (as with the children/offspring signs correlations) In my marriage sector it is ruled by Rooster and I married one! however, I also divorced him :-(
