Within this article we will talk about the planets polarities. We will especially analyze the information these provide us regarding the way our personality behaves on the exterior.

When we talk about polarities, we don’t mean good and bad, masculine and feminine or positive and negative, we mean Yin and Yang.

Grown from the Chinese philosophy, Yin and Yang express the dualist nature of the universe. They have numerous meanings, but we will only talk about those who apply to us astrologically:

Yang – the action, the active and aware part
Yin – the passive, unaware, receptive part

Each zodiacal sign represents one of the two polarities: either Yin, either Yang. In the table below you can find the list of all zodiacal signs and the polarity each represents:

Aries: Yang
Taurus: Yin
Gemini: Yang
Cancer: Yin
Leo: Yang
Virgo: Yin
Libra: Yang
Scorpio: Yin
Sagittarius: Yang
Capricorn: Yin
Aquarius: Yang
Pisces: Yin

If a planet is in a Yang zodiacal sign, it becomes more active and it expresses itself more energetically. At the opposite pole, a planet in a Yin zodiacal sign acts more secluded and becomes more passive.

Our personality and the way we behave in the human society are reflected in astrology mostly by two elements: the Sun and the Ascendant. At these we can add the Moon as a symbol of emotions, instincts and the way we express our feelings. We will now analyze these three elements through the looking glass of the zodiacal signs polarities.

The Sun represents our basic personality, the fundamental energy, our self. The position the Sun can take in a sign indicates the fundamental characters with which we came to this life, our character. It also shows the aware part.

The Ascendant reflects our exterior personality, the way we behave towards others and how we express the qualities the Sun gave us. The zodiacal sign in which is our Ascendant shows the characteristics we will grow during our lifetime, regardless if we will be aware of that or not. At birth the Sun has the maximum influence. As we grow old, our personality gains new characteristics and new dimensions because of the experiences we’ve been through and our evolution. This new dimensions are represented by the Ascendant as a shell of the basic energy and it indicates the way we express that energy.

The Moon marks by its position in the zodiacal signs our emotions and feelings and the way we express these emotions and feelings. It shows the instinctive, unaware part.

The combinations between these three elements, polarity (Yin/Yang) speaking, show a certain characteristic of the way we express in the society and of our possible inner conflicts. In the table below I tried to draw these characteristics without pretending I showed all the possible combinations. Please remember that these meanings might be a little different because of the other elements of the natal chart.

Sun(Yang) - Moon(Yang) - Ascendant (Yang)
This person is very active, has a very dashing personality and a very strong emotional structure. Communication is very good and very active. Very clear expression of the emotions and feelings. Good equilibrium between the inner and outer world.

Sun(Yang) - Moon(Yang) - Ascendant (Yin)
The basic personality manifests itself easily in the outer world. Emotions are difficultly express. Often the awareness (will, intellect) imposes over the unawareness (instincts, emotions).

Sun(Yang) - Moon(Yin) - Ascendant (Yang)
The interior personality and the emotions cannot be easily expressed. There can be conflict between the way we think and feel and the way we express our self. Possible impossibility of expression and communication.

Sun(Yang) - Moon(Yin) - Ascendant (Yin)
Strong and active personality but who cannot always find an outer correspondent. We cannot always express what we want to.

Sun(Yin) - Moon(Yin) - Ascendant (Yin)
This person is very receptive to everything that happens. Very good communication between the personality and the emotional structure. They usually act passively to everything that happens, and never make the first step.

Sun(Yin) - Moon(Yin) - Ascendant (Yang)
Emotions and instincts are very strong and active which comes as a contradiction with the basic energy and the way we want and can express

Sun(Yin) - Moon(Yang) - Ascendant (Yin)
Conflict between the inner structure (what we want, our feelings, our emotions) and the way we communicate in the outer world. The outer world has a powerful influence on the personality and the feelings.

Sun(Yin) - Moon(Yang) - Ascendant (Yang)
Emotions are strongly and clearly expressed which sometimes drives to an inner conflict with the basic personality and the way the person usually behaves.

Usually when the Sun’s polarity differs from the Ascendant’s polarity, the individual suffers a radical change of personality and expression. Mostly, this change comes around the age of 30. If the Sun is Yin and the Ascendant is Yang the individual will change from a passive, meditative person to a more active one, dashing and determined. If it’s the other way around, the Sun is Yang and the Ascendant is Yin, this person will slow down to be more secluded and reflexive.

Swetha,

Rarely have I seen such an understanding of polarity.. NIce job.. do you mind if I share this explanation with some of my fellow astrology students? Nice one... Polarity as the interplay between the opposites and how that interaction affects astrology... and life... I will study this one.. I do anyway but getting it from another perspective is great. Thank you...

Polarity is not a western/eastern divide! Polarity is another name for duality, a concept very deeply embedded in eastern and western thought: right/wrong, true/false, good/bad, malefic/benefic, high/low, negative/positive, heavy/light, police/criminal, politician/oppressed, etc,!

As the cynics say at the beginning of their daily meetings: Everyone poles everyone else, only some of them spell the word as, "POLL!"

As long as there is astrology, significant in your life and reality, the poles are too!

I agree with your definitions of how the elements combine. At least they seem to correspond with the charts I've done. But I disagree regarding the ascendant. I think we manifest the ascendant more as children and grow into our sun.

Surely it would be too simplistic to assume that this applies to everyone. Perhaps not everyone follows this progression from ascendant to the sun!

If this were indeed the case, the sun-sign readings that many papers and magazines give (because they are convenient) would apply more to the older people and be more accurate for them than for individuals that are younger.

Is that the case? Has anyone studied if that is the case? It would be such an easy and obvious proof, don't you think?

Of course it's simplistic, generalities usually are:smt002. But if you're talking about  newspaper horoscopes then they really only apply to the rising sign in an equal house chart. Anyone who's done a few charts knows that a person may or may not resemble their sun sign or rising sign or moon. For example
a Sagittarian with the sun conjunct Pluto and a stellium of planets in Scorpio, may resemble a scorpion if the ruler of their rising sign is in a water sign. Ok maybe not the best example but it's late here. Anyway I think the descriptions of how the yin and yang combine was well done and surprizingly accurate.

Newspaper horoscope readings generally are for sunsigns and not rising signs! Particularly the western ones which take the tropical zodiac into consideration.

Without going into a debate of tropical vs sidereal zodiacs or usefulness of sunsigns -- bringing the topic back to 'focus', I was not convinced about the statement that was made in this thread that a person grows from the rising sign to his/her sunsign. This has simply not been tested to be true and therefore should not be used even as a generalization. An easy way to test would be that younger individuals would be more like their rising signs and older ones would be like their sunsigns. A very simple and easily testable test-design. Perhaps individuals should do that before making claims that the rising sign to sun sign progression is even common, let alone universal! Otherwise, what would be the point of using that tenet?

Please NOTE that I am challenging the thought and not you or whoever said that first!
