Yin and Yang - the basic of Geomancy and Feng Shui

Yin and Yang is one of The most fundamental concepts in Traditional Chinese Medicine. The earliest reference to Yin and Yang is in the I Ching (Book of Changes) in approximately in 700 BC. In this work, all phenomena are said to be reduced to Yin-Yang.


Yin: female, passive, negative principle in nature, The Moon, shaded orientation, north of shady side of a hill, south of a river,


Yang: positive, active, male principle in nature, south of sunny side of a hill, north of a river

Ying-Yang are opposites, each on the opposite ends of a life cycle, like 4 year seasons. On the other hand they can not live without each other as they need each other to complete either Yin or Yang. In the literature statement can be found: ''Yin creates Yang and Yang activates Yin.''
