Yin Energy: The Power of No


It is a man's world of money, power, and privilege.  A man has a masculine body, but a feminine soul: the yin energy, the anima.

It is a woman's universe of human love and acceptance.  God moves via Yin energy.

A woman has a feminine body, but a masculine soul: the yang energy, the animus.

Yin energy is warm, soft, gently, sweet, dark, moon, fire, wind, water, the sea, the forest and quiet. The Yin archetypes when expressed by females are: Artemis/Aphrodite/Athena.   

 Artemis, is the balanced Yin symbol; guardian of wild spaces, wild things, babies and children, virgins, transitions, justice, magic and of solitude.  She is shown in motion, running in a short toga, usually with arrows and either deer or dogs.   Artemis is the negotiator and represents the balanced modern woman;  the dark side of Artemis is cheap, ungrateful and demanding (CUD)).

Aphrodite, is the symbol of excess Yin (and too little Yang). She is always shown naked with flowing hair and in the company of the Three Graces (Vanities). Guardian of love, obsession, affairs, prostitutes, apples, swans, doves, dolphins, suicide, young love, Spring and fertility. This energy represents the modern woman that is seductive and co-dependent in her dealings with the world

Excess Yin energy seeks emotional drama and excitement passion at all costs. The darkside of this energy is a woman who is flaky, frivolous and flighty (FFF).

Athena, is the symbol for one who has too little Yin (and conversely too much Yang).  Athena was a virgin birth and sprung fully grown from the head of Zeus. Always shown ready for battle, clad in armor and armed with the thunderbolt, the shield and the head of Medusa. She represents the modern woman whose focus is on her career and who meets the world head on.

Athena embraces mental pursuits: arts and crafts, wisdom, peace, warfare, strategy, handicrafts and reason, shrewdness in business. Her symbols are the lion, the olive tree, the owl, the shield and the thunderbolt. Athena seeks perfection.  If her energy is used for evil and not good, she is Pushy, Accusatory and Guilt-inducing (PAG).
