Love birds in a paradise garden nest over a Cherry Blossom tree (Sakura)
The Cherry Blossom symbolize the arrival of spring, joy, new generation, love, and beauty. Koi fishes are used to symbolize Yin and Yang in ponds The Koi Fish (Nishikigoi) in Japan means good fortune or luck; Kois are considered “living jewels.” It is the symbol of friendship and romantic love, strength and courage. In Chinese culture, koi fish are a symbol of success and wealth. They can mean several different things: independent minded strong willed and stubborn surpassing of expectations victorious deeds.
THE YIN YANG Nothing in the universe is completely yin or completely yang everything is a mixture of the two.
Yin and yang are interdependent.
One cannot exist without the other. For example, day cannot exist without night. Yin and yang consume and support each other. Yin and yang are usually held in balance--as one increases, the other decreases.
Yin and yang can transform into one another. At a particular stage, yin can transform into yang and vice versa. For example, night changes into day; warmth cools; life changes to death.
Part of yin is in yang and part of yang is in yin. The dots in each serve as a reminder that there are always traces of one in the other. For example, there is always light within the dark e.g., the stars at night, these qualities are never completely one or the other.
Yin is characterized as slow, soft, yielding, diffuse, cold, wet, and passive; and is associated with water, earth, the moon, femininity and nighttime.
Yang, by contrast, is fast, hard, solid, focused, hot, dry, and aggressive; and is associated with fire, sky, the sun, masculinity and daytime.
