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 and USA Republican and Democrat politicians - together with their dates of birth (taken from Wikipedia) 3 of their 5 Elements, and 3 of their 5 associated Yin/Yang labels.

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 UK Conservative politicians are predominately Yang, whilst Labour are predominately Yin, and the same distinction appears between USA politicians.
Astrologically, each of us is either dominated by 'Yin', or by 'Yang'. For some people the degree of domination can be stark, and for others barely noticeable. But there is always a predominance either one way or the other.
