A Few Words about the Condition
The Earth and the Wood elements are our animal self. We must make our moves to get what we want.
While the Earth controls muscles, the Wood control joints and tendons, meaning it controls the direction.
Then the question is how straight you go, and the quality of your changing the direction.
You can use many adjectives: Sharp, soft, light, heavy....
In the case of "Recreate", you steer your life in more leisurely manner. Stop and go as you please. This personality may not achieve things fast, but since it wants to savour the experience along the way, you could have more enriched life.
