In regards to polarity, Aries is considered a male astrological sign, while Pisces is female. Half of the 12 astrological signs are male and half are female.
According to astrology, people born under signs with the same polarity tend to understand each other, while those of different polarities have trouble relating to each other. The Earth and Water signs are female, or yin. These are Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces. The yang signs, Fire and Air, are Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius. Yin signs tend to be indirect, passive, introverted and receptive. Yang signs are typically characterized as direct, outgoing, giving and active.
