complementsThis post is going to be published because I have to get one done today, not because I totally agree with myself on this one yet.

I am tying to get the difference clear between objective and subjective, yin and yang, male and female, positive and negative, active and passive, mind and soul, body and spirit. Are they all two sides of the same coin, or is it more difficult.

In the Zodiac there are 4 signs that reflect it best I think (at this moment) so I uploaded those with a general description. The other 8 signs are not included yet because it would be to complicated at this point. So for now it are just the 4 cardinal signs of the Zodiac, aries/libra and capricorn/cancer.

Without actually thinking about real humans, I think it can be seen as male/female positive (impulsion/reflection) and male/female negative (construction/emotion).

Male/Female positive (spirit/ mind)

impulsionImpulsion (aries, primordial spirit)
Activity that is self-motivated, unaffected by others. New beginnings, the start of new cycles, birth, vitality. Aggressive, willful, assertive. Focused in short bursts, unlikely to sustain interest in the long term. Adventurous, pioneering, warrior-type energy, impatient, works best alone. Unconcerned with approval or acceptance. Lacks persistence and stamina. Honest and forthright.

reflectionReflection (libra, individual mind)
Individual entering into relationship with others, partnership. One-to-one relationships. Meeting others as an equal, interdependency. Encountering repressed part of yourself through others. Going beyond ego boundaries. Peace, harmony, balance, social awareness. Learning how to get along with others, treating others as equals. Art, beauty, harmonious surroundings, distressed by inharmonious interactions. Dialogue, debate, conflict, enemies, justice.


Male/Female negative (body/soul)

constructionConstruction (capricorn, universal body)
Bring about the perfect society. Making practical, efficient connections with others on the physical plane. Ambitious, feels pride in accomplishments. Reality, hard facts. Relationship to authority. Serious, determined, disciplined, focused. Fathering, disciplining love. Authority figures. Seeks certainties in life. Want things in concrete. Concerned with the practical relationships to support yourself within society. Not interested in blue sky ideas, needs to bring theory into concrete reality. Knowing the rules and playing the game.

emotionEmotion (cancer, primordial soul)
Nurturing, support, emotional bonding, belonging, roots, source. Ground of your being. The unconscious, feelings, emotion, first emotional attachments to the world. Mothering, emotional and physical nurturing. Experiences and imprinting during infancy and childhood. Family, ancestors, heritage, relationships to the past. Belonging, feeling at home, caring. Feeling supported, that needs are provided for. Insecurities and fears if your needs haven’t been fulfilled.
