The idea of opposites attracting is nothing new. We see it even in science, with north and south poles and unmatching poles attracting strongly to each other.
How can this be? Opposites attracting seems so unlikely, especially when it pertains to love.
And yet, we see yin and yang energy everywhere – where one side completes the other – including in zodiac signs.
Every zodiac sign has its very own yin and yang, and this is all determined by the strengths and weaknesses of each sign.
Yin and yang zodiac signs complement each other and make extremely powerful and passionate couples!
It’s common to think that the concept of yin and yang deals with how different people are from each other.
On the contrary, yin and yang is an ancient Chinese concept that is about more than just differences.
Yin and yang is about how the differences in one person complement another person and, in fact, complete the other person.
Just like there cannot be light without darkness, or darkness without light, there cannot be yin without yang and vice versa.
In the yin and yang symbol, you may not notice that there is a small patch of darkness in light and light in darkness.
This represents how yin and yang are more than just partners; they bring something out in the other person that might not be readily apparent.
The same can be said of zodiac signs once they find their yin and yang. For instance, you could be a powerful Leo that is boisterous and in love with a shy Libra.
In due time, you can begin to help Libra’s wild side shine! This is just one example of how your yin or yang can be your complement and how they can represent:
- Female Energy
- Male Energy
Many of us have heard of the old adage that opposites attract. The jock loves to be with the prom queen, or the bookworm loves to be with the party animal.
These are more than just movie tropes; however, they hold some truth to them.
Before we dive into how zodiacs have their own yin and yang, it’s important to understand what exactly it means to have a yin or yang – an opposite twin flame.
When people say opposites attract, it really means that they are attracted to different characteristics that are complementary to them.
It’s not a bad thing to be attracted to these opposite characteristics.
For instance, if you’re someone who has a tough time speaking out and defending yourself, it’s great to have a partner that knows how to protect you and can speak up, whether it’s in regard to the relationship or other issues.
You and your partner may be polar opposites in:
- Sexual intimacy
- Financial decision making
- Taste in movies
- Taste in music
- Interests and hobbies
- Being the alpha in the group
- Being less dominant
- Partying vs. staying home on the weekends
These are just some of the many, many characteristics that you might find are opposite between you and your partner.
When you find your yin and yang, these differences can serve to strengthen your relationship rather than deteriorate it.
In addition, it might seem as if you and your partner have completely different interests and personalities.
However, you both might share the same values, such as family and friendships; share the same interest in sports but prefer to play different ones; or value education but prefer different classes and studies.
When it comes to zodiacs (and people), everyone is different, and all will have unique characteristics and personalities.
This makes yin and yang attractions all the more powerful between zodiacs.
Remember, yin and yang aren’t completely opposite, they just share have characteristics that are complementary! You might have more in common with your yin and yang than you might think!
Every zodiac sign has its perfect match and its perfect yin and yang. In astrology, yin zodiac signs are those that are feminine in nature, have high intuition and curiosity, and are loyal.
Yang zodiac signs are those thought to be more masculine, logical, and giving.
When determining which zodiac sign is a yin or yang, it’s also important to take into consideration what Chinese zodiac sign you fall under.
These Chinese zodiacs are composed of 12 animals including:
Unlike western zodiacs, these Chinese zodiacs are determined by the year you were born.
In that year, Earth has a specific polarity, which not only determines your Chinese zodiac but also the yin and yang aspects you fall under.
If you are born in the year of the Monkey, Tiger, Rat, Horse, Dragon, and Dog, you are considered to be a yang sign.
If you are born in the year of the Rooster, Rabbit, Pig, Snake, Ox, or Goat, you’re considered a yin.
Keeping this in mind, you can find your yin and yang depending on your Chinese zodiac as well as by using your regular western zodiac sign.
The western zodiac signs that we are more familiar with also have yin and yang based on their elements.
These yin and yang indicate our compatibility and how well we will match with another person.
Yang signs are considered:
- Air signs: Aquarius, Libra, Gemini
- Fire signs: Leo, Aries, Sagittarius
Yin signs are considered:
- Earth signs: Taurus, Capricorn, Virgo
- Water signs: Pisces, Scorpio, Cancer
If your zodiac sign is yin and you meet an opposite yang sign, these can be some of the most long-lasting and compatible relationships if you choose to put in the work.
Below are some of the best yin and yang relationships and what makes them so attractive.
This might not be a match made in heaven, but an Aquarius and Virgo relationship can be incredibly rewarding, somewhat quirky, and very strong.
Aquarius is a sign that is extremely logical, stoic, and even a bit snobby at times. They don’t play nice, and their masculine energy is the epitome of yang.
On the opposite end is Virgo, the feminine and shy energy. Virgo is also logical and also has deep-set values much as Aquarius does.
However, Virgo is also an emotional creature, and they are highly sensitive.
Although Virgo might not open up about their emotions at first, through time Virgo will learn how to communicate effectively.
When Virgo and Aquarius come together, this can be a yin and yang that takes some hard work and dedication but understands each other deeply.
Virgo and Aquarius will need to communicate effectively in order to work, with Virgo expressing themselves and Aquarius being open to communication.
These two signs are both ruled by Venus, with Taurus having feminine yin energy and Libra having male yang attributes.
These two signs are yin and yang in terms of their intimacy preferences.
Both are incredibly gentle with each other, and with enough time and patience, will be a powerful, loving couple.
However, they both have different needs, with Taurus being more in tune with physical touch and their senses while Libra relies on having eye candy to get the mood going!
Although both have different ideas on what intimacy and “love” are, Taurus and Libra need only communicate their desires to be able to make a perfect yin and yang duo.
These are two signs are perfect for each other only when they learn to embrace each other’s yin and yang energy.
Leo is the masculine, more independent one in the relationship, while Taurus is the feminine, emotional partner that needs to feel close to their lover on a daily basis.
Both Leo and Taurus can become jealous, due to Taurus wanting Leo to stick around and be present in the relationship and Leo wants to be the only object of affection and attention for Taurus.
Because of these differences in yin and yang, when Taurus and Leo are together, they appreciate their time with one another and appreciate their high energy and passion for one another.
At the end of the day, it’s important to remember that there’s much more to relationships than zodiac or yin and yang compatibility.
The teachings of the yin and yang duality also state that no one ever is fully yin or fully yang.
There are certain yin characteristics in yang people and yang characteristics in yin people. We all have our positive and negative aspects and our light and dark days!
Just like we all have certain yin and yang characteristics, we all can learn to see the positive and negative aspects of our partner and learn to embrace those differences.
Also, yin and yang aren’t the only determination of compatibility between zodiacs. Many powerful compatibilities are between the same types of sign – water and water, fire and fire, earth and earth, or air and air.
For instance, Scorpio and Cancer are considered one of the strongest couples in the zodiac. This is because they have compatibility as water signs despite the fact that they aren’t balanced with yin and yang.
The same can be said of Gemini and Aquarius, as this is a great couple, both yang, that communicates well and has amazing intimacy.
It’s best to combine your knowledge of yin and yang energy, your Chinese zodiac, and your Babylonian zodiac with your own personal preferences when selecting a partner.
Yin and yang, with their feminine and male energies, and your ability to interact with your partner based on your element sign can all be a predictor of your success in a relationship.
However, when love has a will, it finds a way!
