Polarity is a relationship between two opposite characteristics or tendencies, like the polarity of two sides of a debate, or of the superhero and villain in a comic book.

Polarity can literally refer to a positive or negative electric charge. Less literally, it indicates something with two opposing but related qualities. You might visualize polarity as a battery holder with a plus sign on one end and a negative on the other. More than just opposites, polarity suggests opposites that are interconnected. What would the light of day be without the dark of night? Good without evil? Yin without Yang?

The sun’s polarity switching



The recent news that the sun’s magnetic field is about to change polarity—North will be South and South will be North—will not wipe out Earth, civilization, or even our late-night snacking. Don’t even expect anything too crazy to happen, too.
Just like Earth, our sun has two geographic poles: the North Pole and the South Pole. But while the Earth’s magnetic field reverses at a very much longer timescales, which is every several hundred thousand years, the sun’s poles does it more frequently around every 11 years.
