    Hi Frazer,

    Yes there is. Each Element has a Yin and a Yang type. So for Water, there’s the Yang Bladder type and the Yin Kidney type.

    The difference between the yin and yang types is that the yang type tends to process things. The yin type tends to store things. So what does that look like? Well, in a Bladder type, they will be perhaps more active, perhaps a bit faster, more involved in the management or the resources, moving things where they need to go, making sure there’s enough in each location. Whereas the Kidney type, might be a bit slower, a bit more patient, not moving all the time, and storing the Willpower.

    As a contrast, the Earth Element is Spleen for yin and Stomach for yang. Spleen holds Ideas – concepts, theories, thoughts. The Stomach processes those thoughts, so is about thinking everything through, analysis.

    Does that make sense?

    It’s a great question…
