The Yin & Yang

By A Keegan

Where is Yin and Yang located

Yin and yang is a well-known Chinese Yin Yang symbol. Sometimes it's called Tai-Chi symbol. The Tai-Chi is from I-Ching. The I-Ching is the greatest foundation of Chinese philosophy. It’s development is from the natural phenomena of our universe. Because I-Ching comes from nature, it should be easy.

What is Yin and Yang

Yin and yang can be thought of as complementary (instead of opposing) forces interacting to form a dynamic system in which the whole is greater than the parts. Everything has both yin and yang aspects, (for instance shadow cannot exist without light). Either of the two major aspects may manifest more strongly in a particular object, depending on the criterion of the observation.


Yin has the following characteristics, representations and symbols:

  • earth

  • female

  • dark

  • passive

  • absorbing

  • even numbers

  • valleys and streams

  • the tiger

  • the color orange

  • a broken line

    • Yang has the following opposite characteristics, representations and symbols:

    • heaven

    • male

    • light

    • active

    • penetrating

    • odd numbers

    • mountains

    • the dragon

    • the color azure

    • an unbroken lines

    This Yin and Yang come from the religion daoism

Who Created Yin and Yang

The Chinese saw Yin and Yang as a balance between two oppoing forces,representing different seasons. These elements oposed each other because they both represented different seasons. Yin is passive, and yang is active; yin is dark, and yang is light; yin is feminine, and yan.


yin and yang used to be red and black. Then later on it changed to black and white. The colors are the exact oposite compared to red and black which are not he exact opisite colors. In all I think that white and black look better.
