The Political Divide
Democratic politics across the world divides support between left wing and right wing policies.
In Chinese astrology that divide is distinguished by Yin and Yang qualities.
In UK politics the British Labour Party is predominately Yin and the Conservative Party is predominately Yang.
Independent, introspective, responsive, solitary, spiritual, less materialistic, introverted, rebellious, liberal, thoughtful, considerate, emotionally stable, less robust and slow to alter opinions.
Sociable, optimistic, pragmatic, materialistic, passionate, confident, conservative, self-orientated, susceptible, emotionally erratic, distrustful, hospitable, active, serious-minded and prone to jealousy.
Don't for one moment think that Yin is feminine, and Yang masculine. Gender plays no part in this analysis.Below you will find two lists - of senior Labour and senior Conservative politicians in the UK - together with their dates of birth (taken from Wikipedia) 3 of their 5 Elements, and 3 of their 5 associated Yin/Yang labels.Use the:

Without knowing times of birth it is impossible to complete the Element Chart for each politician. Nevertheless, on the information available it is intriguing to note that Conservative politicians are predominately Yang, whilst Labour are predominately Yin. (Note: Labour politician Shaun Woodward started his political career with the Conservative Party)
Wood is the Element associated with anger, and those with two or more Wood Elements are likely to lose their temper on occasions. Recent speculation that Gordon Brown is prone to lose his temper is partly supported by his one Wood, but Baroness Royall, Cheryl Gillan and Eric Pickles appear the more likely candidates, each having two Wood Elements. However, the hour of birth and the Ming Shu might well reveal a further two Wood Elements for any of the politicians named.
