It's also important to know what each chart is relating to.
The "every other place" are referring to the Year element. In the manual Marie is referring to the Fortune Element. THey are two different things.
1958 (Feb 18 '58 - Feb 7 '59) is a Dog with a year element of Earth, and a fortune element of Wood.
1955 (Jan 24 '55 - Feb 11 ' 56) Is a Sheep with a wood year element, and a metal fortune element.
