  1. The yin-yang symbol represents opposite chi energies that can't exist without each other. The black curve, with its white dot, stands for femininity, cold, night, matter, softness and passivity, while the white curve represents masculinity, spirit, heat, day, hardness and activity. The black, or yang symbol, is shown on top because heat rises.
