Yang Water is best represented by large areas of water like lakes, oceans, or large rivers. Its water is constantly moving; therefore, Yang Water people are very dynamic and like to move from place to place all the time. Like water, which can go around objects and find a path through any crack, Yang Water people are very adaptable and can go around problems much better than other elements. Their nature is diplomatic, and they do not use force; they simply find another way to get what they want. This is the element type that achieves whatever it wants just because it wants to be free. If success does not happen for a Yang Water, it will go nowhere in life and become a drifter. The entire impetus of Yang Water people is their thirst for freedom; Yang Waters dislike being controlled or locked in. So, either they will be very successful, or they will lose themselves and completely waste their lives.
Intelligence is the main characteristic of Yang Water people, as they have an outstanding ability to learn and can absorb information from different fields in a very easy and natural way. Yang Water people are natural-born entrepreneurs with an outstanding ability to reproduce ideas and businesses they notice in their surroundings. One of the best examples is Bill Gates, who built a software empire by simply copying what other people had made and repackaging it into a new range of products for the mass market.
Yang Waters are so-called reflectors, like an ocean that reflects and reproduces sunlight; that's how they reproduce ideas. Yang Waters appear creative but are actually very fast and detailed imitators. Water has no color; it reflects the sky or trees and whatever is around it at the speed of light. Copy and paste sums them up; they see something and just copy and paste it everywhere and anywhere it works.
Yang Water can easily see the big picture; therefore, they are very good business tacticians. There is always something going on with Yang Water, like a deep ocean that carries new ideas ready to come up to the surface at any time. They like social life, being with people, and trying all kinds of things just for fun. They don't like to be tied down and are very unpredictable about their next move, which sometimes can even cause a certain amount of anxiety because they are not often able to settle on one thing.
Although their nature is to run free, it's very good for Yang Water to have boundaries; otherwise, the water will spill everywhere and will have no direction. Therefore, the best way to control Yang Water and give it boundaries is with Yang Earth, or even Yin Earth, if it's strong enough to handle the water.
Yang Water has a very systematic, quick, and sharp thought process. They can visualize the problem, see it from different angles, take the big picture into account, and then come up with a solution. If a person is a well-balanced Yang Water, their thought processes rarely get distracted by emotions. Still, in the case of a weak or overly strong Yang Water, their emotions can get in the way and cloud their judgment.
If they are not able to come up with satisfying conclusions, they will ask lots of questions until they can. If Yang Water is weak, they can become too analytical and might not be able to finish the process. Yang Water has an excellent memory, like a deep sea that holds various treasures and creatures deep down. Yang Water is able to memorize things they find important and pull them out of the depths every time they need them, surprising everybody around. Their memory is selective, and things that they don't want to keep are simply erased and lost forever in the depths of the ocean.
Yang Waters like to impress people with their skills, latest discoveries, or any bit of new information. Their self-confidence relies very much on what people think about them, so they need to keep up a smart appearance. A highly developed Yang Water enjoys its superiority and rarely accepts to play second fiddle. Therefore, they will do anything to get to the top. Less developed Yang Water people might suffer from inferiority complexes and as a result, sometimes they withdraw from society to avoid such situations. In fact, being useless is one of Yang Water's biggest fears, and when the situation arises, they like to go into action immediately, just to boost their self-esteem. As long as they are in constant movement, Yang Water is healthy and keeps developing.
It's essential to understand that all these qualities come into question when Yang Water is too strong, which means it floods over and all around, and it's directionless. In that case, the person might be pessimistic and emotional. To have the positive qualities of Yang Water, the water has to be in a state of healthy balance, or instead, it will be in opposition to any positive attributes.
If Yang Water loves their job, they will motivate themselves to do their best, and there is no need to look over their shoulders. If one day they don't see the purpose of their work, they will simply leave, regardless of whether another job is waiting for them or not. They do not waste time at work, but if they want to entertain themselves with something, they will do so, clearly and openly. With their co-workers, they are sociable and diplomatic, and they get along quite easily with everybody.
Highly developed Yang Water does not engage in power struggles with their colleagues; they have their focus on something far bigger. The less developed Yang Water tends to be involved in lots of dramas and petty disputes among its co-workers.
Yang Waters don't like to take risks or spend money; they will turn every coin over five times before they decide to spend it. So getting money out of Yang Water is very hard unless they are paying for something they are really into. They are the great copycats of all the element types, and they like to stick to things that have been proven to work. As they are quick to catch onto anything around about, they need to decide on their career so they do not become insignificant jacks of all trades. In cooperation with suitable partners, they can go beyond their tendency to be limited and become truly great. In fact, Yang Waters are very good managers and leaders; they take care of every aspect of the business, especially making sure that all the paperwork is clear and the costs are down!
They are fully aware of what their business associates and colleagues are doing and ready anytime to ask the right questions to stay in the loop. As leaders, they enjoy sharing opinions with their colleagues and subordinates, as they have an open mind and will count them in, but that doesn't mean they will follow everything people tell them. In the case of a less developed Yang Water, the opinions of others can make them confused and make them constantly change their minds, due to a lack of inner control and direction. A highly developed Yang Water has a good sense for business, marketing, finances, risk management, and creating business plans. They usually have good connections, but their pride sometimes stops them from asking for help – which can prove to be their ultimate downfall.
On the other hand, either too strong or too weak Yang Water might be too calculative, pessimistic, and over-analytical, so their business prospects will be rather low. A good Yang Water always has a big picture of their business and is able to see the connection between the now and the future. Yang Waters are simply dreamers but with the ability to bring those dreams to reality, but only if their water is well-balanced or is going through a lucky element period.
Yang Waters are conservative spenders, and usually, it takes them a long time to make the first step. But once they have collected all the necessary information about a certain business, they go fully in, ready and keen to make it huge and reach their ultimate goal: financial freedom. When it comes to investments, Yang Waters rarely use advice from specialists, although they might ask questions. They like doing their research and making up their minds. One of the best examples is Warren Buffet, who made a fortune simply by following his own system of investments. He would rarely take risks and would go only for particular investments in which he fully believed.
Friendship and Relationship
Being the water element, Yang Water always seeks balance, and people often come to them for advice, knowing they will give them right-minded advice. They do not talk much, but when they do, they are honest, sometimes even brutally honest. The water element also likes to keep itself clean, therefore it will always try to find a way out of a troubling relationship or dodgy business partnership. They simply cannot handle any kind of relationship drama; that's just not their thing!
Yang Water makes friends easily; connecting with everything around is their natural state, and people are attracted to them like thirsty men to water. In their free time, they like to attend big parties, dances, or anything that involves people and movement. But due to their dual and moody nature, which is typical for water people, not many people can get near enough to fully understand Yang Water, and only a few get access to their true feelings.

You are Yang Water Ren if your daymaster is the Water Rat, Water Tiger, Water Dragon, Water Horse, Water Monkey, or Water Dog. Yang Water is symbolized by vast oceans, great lakes, and rapid rivers. Ren Water people prefer freedom of movement and a carefree lifestyle and strongly dislike pressure and confrontations. They are extroverted, optimistic, resourceful, and artistic lovers of poetry and dance. They also make excellent businesspeople. Like a rushing river, Ren Waters are frequently on the go. Movement and activity are important for their emotional and physical well-being. As the saying goes, still waters run deep, and it is sometimes difficult to "read" the Ren Water person. Dynamic and focused, Ren Waters can be myopic when they have their minds set on something or someone. Inconsistent and temperamental, their moods tend to swell and recede like the tide. Compassionate, attentive, empathic, and warm, Ren Water persons sometimes care too much and may suffer from giving more than they receive. These are the good Samaritans of the 10 heavenly stems. Unfortunately, they may become so concerned about advocating and spreading love and goodwill that they overlook the nuts-and-bolts practicalities of helping. Ren Waters almost always have good intentions; however, their hidden compulsion is neediness - a need to be needed, appreciated, and loved - but they often avoid recognizing those needs.
The Ren Water female is challenging to understand and please. Demanding, sometimes snappish, and disdainful of weakness, she tends to have high expectations of her partner. Love is always confusing for the Ren Water woman. Should she select a dominant, influential man who rebuffs her testy demeanor, or a romantic, sweet man who is always available and ready to carry out her wishes? Truthfully, she would love to have both available for her, depending on her mood du jour.
The Ren Water male is the classic strong, silent type. Never one for small talk or meaningless verbal banter, the Ren Water man says what he means and means what he says. His affections will be expressed in tangible ways such as gifts or financial assistance. Although he is not verbally effusive with his declarations of passion, he is highly sentimental and will enjoy the little gestures and romantic things that you do. The Ren Water man will almost always be a successful businessman, manager, or entrepreneur, but he'll probably be just as married to his job as he is to you. Nurture and facilitate his career, and you will endear yourself to him forever.

Watch a tendency to be suspicious, and to leverage a response using your gifts of influence and persuasion. Your ability to manipulate language, ideas, and tricky situations is uncanny.
