AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18) You will be in the doghouse if you are being. Do not confront situations unless you are sure you have a good understanding of the dilemma. Your desire for excitement and adventure may be expensive.
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19) Control your temper by getting immersed in your work. You may not be too pleased with the actions of those you live with. Consider making pleasure trips or participating in entertainment that will require energy.
CANCER (June 21 - July 22) Your efforts will be rewarded handsomely. Be careful that you aren't saddled with the responsibilities of others. Take care of matters involving institutions or government agencies.
LEO (July 23 - August 22) Too much work and no play will not only result in fatigue and frustration but also loneliness, too. Your added discipline will help you complete the impossible at work. You need to keep everyone on your domestic scene too busy to complain.
PISCES (February 19 - March 20) You can make money if you're willing to push your ideas on those in a position to support your efforts. Channel your efforts into achieving your goals. Your emotional reaction will be dependent upon your partner's responsiveness.
GEMINI (May 21 - June 20) Emotional deception is evident. Involvement in fitness clubs will be conducive to engaging romantic connections. You will be able to close any deals successfully.
TAURUS (April 20 - May 20) Travel should be on your agenda. You will gain a lot if you listen. Keep the promises you've made or you can expect to be in the doghouse.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21) Your mate may want to pick a fight but if you're persistent with your affections their anger should dissipate. You must use discretion when talking to others. Gambling should not be an option. Put your energy into self-improvement programs that promise to make you into a better you.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21) Go to the top if you're being harassed or held back. If you can't trust someone, question the connection. Put your efforts into making constructive improvements to your environment and to your state of mind.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22) Be sure not to burn any bridges. Your fight for those less fortunate is not likely to end in sweet victory. Your ability to charm others will put you in the limelight at social functions.
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22) Take time to talk things over. Travel for business or pleasure. Make sure any presentation you have is ready. You can set your goals and make a beeline for your target.
ARIES (March 21 - April 19) Don't blow situations out of proportion. If you can mix business with pleasure much can be accomplished. Curb any jealous fits if your partner has been flirting with someone else.
(Despite my feeling of necessity to smack my head against a large blunt object like a wall, I will indulge the question.) White and black, heads and tails, peanut butter and jelly, up and down, left and right, they are each dependent on the other. Neither is evil, they are simply two sides of the same thing. Magick is magick and I do not personally differentiate between 'white' and 'black', but for those who do I say its simply opposites that depend on each other's existence. Magick isn't evil or good. It is the intent of the user that measures the morality.
So in short, yes. Yin and Yang exist equally and can have a good balance.

Newborn was not calling you a fluff, he was stating that any serious practitioner typically does not get along role players that claim their fantasy as reality is all.
As for the question the very first thing I'd like to address is the existence of a "white" or "black" magic practitioner. You obviously comprehend that magic has no color and that the terms are merely moral labels but I would be extremely surprised to find anyone that is entirely one or the other. The issue is that what is "white" magic to one person may be black to another and that in reality very actions that don't affect people both positively and negatively. Morality is not clear cut into black and white but filled with all kinds of shades of grey, magic is the same.
I'd also be hesitant to quite so quickly quick insult Bo as you did, he makes a perfectly true and valid point that "black" magic would not exist without the comparison of "white" magic and vice versa. I realize it can be difficult not to jump to your own defense but it might be worth making sure that you're actually being insulted first.

first, TheFaceOfBo wasn't being an idiot your remarks weren't called for [though his wording was insulting] because he gave you his answer; yes, they can.
second, NewbornChaos wasn't insulting you, he was making a joke. a fluffy and someones who is inexperienced might have trouble co-existing.
in regards to your question, i agree with Zrozex1 and Murfie, while magick has no colour, one person could perceive themselves as a 'white magick practitioner' while another could see their work as 'black magick'.
while i don't know if you follow the Rede, it states 'As it Harm None' and this can be a major debate. a lot of people will see this as the only rule and believe they can do whatever, but if you scratch the surface and use your moral compass, you'll find it's far more complicated. 'Harm None', if you eat meat, you're killing a living thing to eat, some would argue this is harmful and therefore become vegetarians. i've met many vegetarians, while most are fine, i have met some who genuinely think that since i eat meat i'm a heartless monster. it's their morality versus mine. same would go with magick, say you cast a healing spell on someone, while you see it as 'white' someone else might see you forcing your will over another and call it 'black'. same argument could be made for a curse, someone did you wrong, you curse them, some see that as justified and good, others would still see it as wrong and evil.
to get back to your question, it would only become an issue if one party made it an issue. they can co-exist, live together, even love each other, but if one party [or both] keeps picking away at the spells they cast being morally wrong, then it can come crashing down around them.
Black magic, like a "evil" action is when magic is used irrationally, for example to kill without sense, to harm out of passion, if anything isn't needed to live why perform it.
I'm a Stoic and I have a very clear view on what I believe, that to be influenced by your emotions is wrong. (I know it is ironic but I have never sought revenge, also to Murfie, thank you for understanding what I mean by black and white, but I simply mean can a person who acts purely on emotion with no logic or sense, inhabit a space with a person of absolute reason and deliberate action from thought. Without chaos ensuing.
