The Chinese zodiac is divided into years, rather than months like Western astrology. Each year is assigned an animal that represents it. So a person born in that year will have certain characteristics associated with that animal. All of the animals in the Chinese zodiac are actual animals except for the Dragon – with apologies to those who believe in dragons!
People born in Tiger years – which would include 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010 and those who will be born in the coming year, 2022, are said to have certain traits.
The Tiger has a Magnetic personality, loves to shine in public. He is definitely not a wallflower.
Tigers are noble and courageous by nature and tend to be loners. They have a deeply sensitive side, which when combined with their passion makes them good companions.
The Tiger needs attention and will always stand out in a crowd. Taking command is the natural order of things for the Tiger. In China, he is known as the King of Beasts, as the Lion is in the West. Tigers can be aggressive and even offensive if not properly restrained.
Women born under the sign of the Tiger may have difficulty, especially with another woman. ‘Never bring a Tigress into the house’ is an old Chinese saying. The qualities associated with the Tiger are usually thought of as being inappropriate for a woman, especially in Chinese society.
Some modern Tigresses, however, may find some things in modern society quite to their liking. At their worst Tigers can become quarrelsome, rash, and vain. They can be uncompromising and hot-tempered at times.
Of course, Chinese astrology, like Western astrology, is much more complex than simply knowing your sign. In addition to animal years, for example, there are 5 elements to consider- metal, wood, water, earth and fire. 2022 is the Year of the Water Tiger.
People under the same animal sign will differ based upon what element rules their sign. The time of day they were born also factors into it – each hour is ruled by a particular animal.
So you could, for example, be born in the Year of the Tiger, but in the Hour of the Rooster. If you want to learn more about Chinese astrology and the Year of the Tiger, browse around this site and you can learn more!
