"In the Chinese System, the autumn season is governed by the energy of the Metal element, which is associated with communication and the workings of the mind. Mental well-being involves a positive self image and being happy. You can accomplish this by taking responsibility for your happiness, by caring well for yourself and others, and by doing what gives you inward satisfaction and is also bebeficial for your environment."
