What do Polarities mean?

Polarities are 6 groups of 2 Zodiac Signs, that lie opposite each other in a birth chart. These polarities depict important opposite features of Zodiac Signs. This opposition ranges from opposite personalities, attitudes or appearances to the outer world. An important detail to remember when it comes to polarities, is that they have the same Sign (Negative & Negative or Positive & Positive). Polarities divide the 12 Zodiac Signs, into 2 groups namely: Positive Signs and Negative Signs.

 Polarities have Positive Signs or Negative Signs

Positive Signs are considered to be more extrovert, and open to the outer world. They let others into their life, and are very engaging with new people. They like being indulged into new environments and energies.

Negative Signs are more inward and like lining up their energies before, engaging with others. This translates into having a smaller social battery, therefore making them introverts. But the truth is they can be very social, it’s just not at the top of their list all the time.
