Benefactors: Circular or spherical; gray, metallic; front right
Children: Circular or spherical; white, metallic; middle right
Knowledge: Flat or square; dark blue; front left
Fame: Triangle or pointed; red; rear middle
Career: Wavy or curvy; black; front middle

Earth: Health, knowledge, partnerships
Metal: Benefactors, children
