Solitaire card game using 5-suited deck

Inspiration: Chinese 5 elements/phases, yin-yang, seasons, rock-paper-scissors, KARA 5

Goal:
Deplete the Yin and Yang piles.

Set up:
Shuffle a 40-card 5-suited 8-rank deck.
Deal the first four cards face up into four separate piles--called seasons.
Split the remaining cards into two piles--called yin and yang piles.
Flip over the top cards of the yin and yang piles.

Rules:
You may only move the top card of the yin and yang piles onto any of the seasons.
These are restrictions on how to move the cards. The following table show which card can be placed where:
Green can be placed on top of Blue and Black.
Red can be placed on top of Green and Gold.
Black can be placed on top of Red and Blue.
Gold can be placed on top of Black and Green.
Blue can be placed on top of Gold and Red.
Following these rules, place the cards from the Yin and Yang piles onto the seasons until the Yin and Yang piles are empty.

Flavor:
Based on Chinese 5 elements, the 5 suits of the deck represent one of the elements.
Gold = Metal
Blue = Water
Black = Earth
Red = Fire
Green = Wood
Each element can either promote or restrain another element. i.e.
Metal promotes Water promotes Wood promotes Fire promotes Earth promotes Metal.
Metal restrains Wood restrains Earth restrains Water restrains Fire restrains Metal.
Following these concepts, a card of one element can be placed on top of another element when one of the following is true:
The element is being promoted by another element, or the element restrains the other element.
