I’ve been seeing a lot of people use this symbol as a ‘oh I’m so grunge/hipster/cool/awesome’ and I find it…annoying, I guess.  This is an ancient symbol and there is a lot of meaning behind it.  So, read on!  Here's the link to the rest of the article. 

The most well-known of Taoist visual symbols is the Yin-Yang symbol, also known as the Taiji symbol. The image consists of a circle divided into two teardrop-shaped halves - one white and the other black. Within each half is contained a smaller circle of the opposite color. 

The circle represents Tao - the undifferentiated Unity out of which all of existence arises. The black and white halves within the circle represent Yin-qi and Yang-qi, the primordial feminine and masculine energies whose interplay gives birth to the manifest world: to the Five Elements (Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, Water) and Ten-Thousand Things (all creation, birthed from the Five Elements).

The curves and circles of the Yin-Yang symbol imply a kaleidoscope-like movement. This implied movement represents the ways in which Yin and Yang are mutually-arising, interdependent, and continuously transforming, one into the other. One could not exist without the other, for each contains the essence of the other. Night becomes day, and day becomes night.  Friends become enemies, and enemies become friends. Such is the nature - Taoism teaches - of everything in the relative world.

The smaller circles nested within each half of the symbol serve as a constant reminder of the interdependent nature of the black/white “opposites.” It reminds the Taoist practitioner that all of relative existence is in constant flux and change. And while the creation of pairs of opposites would seem to be an aspect of our human software, we can maintain a relaxed attitude around this, knowing that each side always contains the other, as night contains day, or as a mother “contains” the infant that she will, in time, give birth to.

Within light there is darkness,but do not try to understand that darkness.Within darkness there is light,but do not look for that light.Light and darkness are a pair,like the foot before and the foot behind in walking.Each thing has its own intrinsic valueand is related to everything else in function and position.Ordinary life fits the absolute as a box and its lid.The absolute works together with the relative,like two arrows meeting in mid-air.
