5 parts: Wooden, fireplace, earth, steel, and water.

Related to the 4 quadrants of the vault of heaven are the Azure Dragon of the East, the Vermillion Chicken of the South, the White Tiger of the West, and the Black Tortoise of the North; within the middle is the Qilin (unicorn). Every area corresponds to one of many 5 parts: steel (west), wooden (east), water (north), fireplace (south), and earth (middle).
Transferring throughout the evening sky, the celebrities join all life to the 5 parts. When the universe and parts are aligned, concord ensues.
After we perceive our connection to others and our place within the universe, peace and concord fill our lives.
