Liver, Spring, and the Element of Wood

In the Five Element system, Water generates Wood. Spring unfurls from the cold stillness of winter and bursts into vibrant, expansive growth.
The Yin and Yang Organs associated with the springtime, and with the element of Wood, are the Liver and Gallbladder. In Chinese Medicine, the Liver is responsible for the smooth flow of Qi and Blood throughout our bodies. When our Qi is not flowing smoothly in all directions, we become stagnant. We become less flexible. And wood is strongest when it can flex and bend with the winds of change.
