What is Yin Yang?
Everyone recognizes the symbol: the little black and white half circles that swirl into each other, with a dot of the opposite color on either side. Just by looking at it, its most basic meaning is clear: maintain balance. But the meaning of Yin and Yang goes much deeper than that.
The Yin, or the dark side, is associated with everything hard, negative, cold, wet, and feminine. The Yang, or the light side, is associated with things soft, positive, warm, dry and masculine.
