The Tiger: An Introduction
Were you born in the year of the tiger? Are you curious what that means for you? If so, this article can help explain the Chinese horoscope tiger to all of you tigers out there!
For thousands of years, the lunar cycle- based zodiac has been used in China. Because it takes the lunar cycle twelve years to complete, there are twelve animal symbols. Your Chinese horoscope is determined by the year you were born instead of the month like in our western zodiac.
Under each sign, the characteristics of occurrences in people and events correspond with the traits of that animal. The myth of how the twelve signs were chosen originated with Buddha. Before he departed from this world, he invited all the animals to a great feast. Only twelve were present. Buddha named each year after all of the twelve animals in the order by which they arrived. The tiger was the third animal to arrive.
Tigers are very compassionate, supportive, and tenderhearted. They are without a doubt the lovers of the Chinese zodiac. The tiger is very alert and attentive to the world around them. Thoughtful and reflective, they have great intelligence. Tigers are fiercely loyal, and are very assertive. They will defend their loved ones boldly and vigorously. A tiger knows what it wants and is not afraid to go after it. They make passionate lovers and true friends. Conversely, they can also be hot headed, stubborn, and impulsive.
The elements of nature are also factored into Chinese horoscopes. Because of this, you are a certain type of tiger, not just a tiger. Water tigers are the creative geniuses of the tiger clan and despise being alone. Fire tigers are volatile but also full of charisma and enthusiasm. Metal tigers are very ambitious, merciful, and kind. Reflective and full of self-confidence, the earth tiger is the workaholic of the group.Lastly, wood tigers are quick witted and likeable friends who are always there for you.
Tigers are well suited for careers such a writer, explorer, actor, musician, politician, or daredevil. A few famous tigers include Oscar Wilde, Marco Polo, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and Marilyn Monroe. As far as compatibility, the tiger should look for happiness with a rabbit, dragon, horse, dog, or pig. Stay away from those snakes and monkeys!
If these qualities sound like you, you must be a true tiger! Considering the Chinese horoscope tiger is such a versatile and likeable character, you should be proud! Keep moving stealthily through life, but be on the alert for troublesome monkeys!
