William is represented by fire. In the short term, it’s good if he quits his job (fire destroys wood). In the medium term, it’s bad if he quits his job (water destroys fire and fire generates earth). In the long term, it’s so-so if he quits his job (he is strengthened by another fire but fire generates earth).
