Are You a Dragon (Yin) or a Tiger (Yang)?

The Chinese philosophy of feng shui is over 3,000 years old, but still carries weight to this day. At the core of the feng shui teachings is the belief that everything in the universe is comprised of complementary equals -- the yin representing female qualities and the yang being the male qualities. The Chinese refer to this as the yin-yang theory. We have night, but we also have day. We have work, but we also have play. It is also called the law of the unity of opposites.
