Planting of the seed into the earth represents the fetus in the womb. Anyone who has ever grown anything whether it be a plant, flower or vegetable has participated in using their feminine powers. The sun, that allows the plant to grow, is a masculine energy/Yang energy. The water used to contribute to the plant growth is a female energy, Yin force.  This is a good example of how the Yin and Yang, feminine and masculine powers come together to create abundance, beauty and flow.
