In different ways
‘Do you not know that at the dawn of manifestation the gods wove the web of creation between the poles of the pairs of opposites, active and passive, positive and negative, and that all things are these two things in different ways and upon different levels, even priests and priestesses . . . . .’ – The Sea Priestess by Dion Fortune , page 172 (quoted in Jason Mankey's excellent article, A Witch's Guide to Dion Fortune ) That's right: all things have polarity - not just male and female, but many other pairs of opposites too.
