When guessing someone's "zodiac sign", make sure to remember that the sun's position is only one part of what makes up a person.
It only describes the way people take action and express themselves.
1. Positive and negative Polarity
Although the polarites are called "positive" and "negative", or "male" and "female", it has nothing to do with a person being good or bad or their sex.
The polarities are energies that create a whole - think of it as Yin and Yang.
- The negative Yin energy directs energy inwards and is receptive.
- The positive Yang energy directs its energy outwards and is assertive.
Do they do what they do witth a goal (Yang) or just for the sake of doing it (Yin).
2. The Quatriplicites - Elements
The Yin energy is divided into the elements Water and Earth.
- Water is the emotional element, these people act on feelings and moods.
- Earth is the practical element, these people act according to what is most sound and safe.
The Yang energy is divided into the elements Air and Fire.
- Air is the social element, these people act on what makes their intellect grow and what makes them pick up new information.

3. The Triplicities - Modes
