6 metal : heaven's force
Creative energy, consolidating dispersed energies with precision and discernment into manifest form. When sharpened with hard won experience, the 6 edge cuts through the extraneous to get to the heart of the matter. Precision animated by wisdom and tenderness. If, due to societal pressure, one is constantly softening that edge, we lose it’s power, and are left with a hard shell. Out of balance 6 can be overcritical, disempowering and harsh. At its best 6 can embody the power of divine light, expressed through the heart (respectful, loving father).
