Yin & Yang, the principle of contrasting concepts of your self-expression

Breaking down the nuances of astrology can feel like solving a Rubik’s cube. But you don’t have to be an expert to get a sense for how each element affects you. At Zebrapad we investigate every nook and cranny of your birth chart, giving you the most direct analysis of every subtle detail of your profile — without the complicated jargon.

One of those is a polarity called Yin/Yang, which contrasts the categories of positive and negative.

Yin/Yang also goes by masculine/feminine or emissive/receptive. In ancient Chinese philosophy, Yin/Yang is the principle of contrasting concepts, like light and dark side of your personality. In your birth chart, it determines where you express and direct your energy towards the most.



You can think of Yin/Yang as the opposing shades or the polar charges of your self-expression. It’s a great tool to learn how you connect and relate to those around you. It’s broken up between the elements.

If your birth chart is mainly water and earth signs, you’re Yin dominated; if you’re mostly fire and air signs, you’re Yang dominated.
