Yin and Yang

One of the traditions about the tarot that I was taught was of the male-female duality inherent in the cards.  Cups and Pentacles are female, Wands and Swords are male.  This tradition can be taken back only so far, perhaps only to the nineteenth century.  But it is useful, and seems to have some validity and deeper insight.

At the below link Andrew Nugent-Head of the Association for Traditional Studies, a practitioner of Bagua and Chinese medicine, is giving a lecture on “Daoyin” that touches on the male (yang) – female (yin) dichotomy.  If you want the short version, start around the 27:30 mark.

Daoyin Seminar: Hour 1

And if you want a very short demo of his martial skill reflective of the lecture along with a short story, go to the 12:00 minute mark.  As I was showing this lecture to my wife she was impressed that she could see a column of energy around him. I was impressed that she could see a column of energy around him.  It took seeing him move for me to recognize his skill.
