“Gender is in everything; everything has its Masculine and Feminine Principles; Gender manifests on all planes.” ~ The Kybalion


"Gender is in everything; everything has its Masculine and Feminine Principles Gender; manifests on all planes."This Principle embodies the truth that there is GENDER manifested in everything — the Masculine and Feminine Principles ever at work. This is true not only of the Physical Plane, but of the Mental and even the Spiritual Planes.



~The word “Gender” is derived from the Latin root meaning **to beget; to procreate ; to generate ; to create ; to produce.



GENDER is manifested in everything. The Masculine and Feminine Principlesever at work. This is true not only of the Physical Plane, but of the Mentaland even the Spiritual Planes. A moment’s consideration will show youthat the word has a much broader and more general meaning than the term “Sex,” the latter referring to the physical distinctions between male and female living things.~




The Ying and Yang above is a description of the male and female aspect. If you noticed within each is the opposite color dot. This explains that within the male is a female aspect and same goes for the feminine aspect has within a male part. It is the unity of both sides which make us whole.



Through the lens of correspondence, a deeper understanding can be gained and we begin to see that outside of physicality in the immaterial mental and spiritual realms, the manifestations of the masculine and feminine principles are somewhat less obvious but nonetheless just as prevalent as matter. Remember, matter is a manifestation of mind and emotions (i.e. E=Electric + motion=movement or vibration = emotion) are a manifestation of spirit which we recognize as feelings. Following this logic, we can begin to understand the less obvious manifestations of mind and spirit through the corresponding components of creation known as gender. Furthermore, some of the masculine and feminine emotional correspondences we can recognize are: 



Emotional Correspondences (Spiritual)

~Femininelove, patience, compassion, intuition, gentleness, Right Brain


~Masculine logic, creativity, passion, energy, self reliance, intellect, Left Brain




Elemental Correspondences (Physical)~FeminineWater, Earth~MasculineAir, Fire



Spiritual Correspondences (Mental)NoneMind transcends gender.

Planetary Correspondences

~FeminineMoon, Earth, Venus, Neptune, Jupiter~Masculine


Sun, Mars, Saturn, Mercury,  Uranus, Pluto~NeutralMercury



As listed above one can see that the Principle of Gender is all around and in everything. This is the dual nature of life that we struggle to understand. With the Principle of Polarity it starts to become clearer. We strive to know what is the Creator. We do this by combining the feminine with the masculine. This will bring us ever closer.



Remember that via the Principle of Correspondence,everything is mental in nature, “As above so below”, that the Creator is above these laws but are subjected to it when it enters our reality. It splits itself in order to experience this reality and to experience it through its creations. We are the creation of The All Knowing Creator. As Jesus once said “ If you know me then you know my father”.



Let not man nor obstacle prevent one from knowing the truth. Ever seek through ones experience the joy of life that is to be had once understanding settles upon the brow of the student.
