The Spiritual Theme of Metal Element: Let go and move on
The relationship between plants and animals is based on the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide. In the same way, in the human world, give and take is fundamental, but everyone tends to forget to give in their own survival and energy. Forgive the ignorant actions of others who have harmed you = wash away, let go = breathe and you will find peace. In real life, the handicap caused by the water and metal elements can be covered later by the power of the Earth and Wood elements. ~By accepting, forgiving, and letting go of the actions of all those involved, you are the best gift you can give not only to yourself, but to future generations as well.
