2022 Chinese Zodiac|Story of the Tiger, Horoscope, and Personalities 虎年生肖故事运势

For Those babies who are born after 2/1/2022, You are a Water Tiger::  your zodiac animal is Tiger and the element is Water. 

Water Element

Water is the element of Yin. It is part of our bodies and biological nature. It can be a liquid, gas, and solid.  It can also quickly move and transform. It is a strong force and can be destructive, such as floods, but it’s vital to life, as shown by our bodies being over 60% water.      

The Tiger 

The Tiger, however, has a fixed connection to the element of Wood. Tigers reflect the characteristics of Yang. They are action-oriented, bold, courageous, and loyal. Those born under this zodiac sign are typically impatient, independent-thinking individuals. . They are tenacious and never give up on a goal. Once they set their feet, there is no turning back.

It will also be critical this year to match the impulsive Yang energy of Tiger with the free-flowing, Yin energy of Water when making a big decision or else one may run afoul of an “avalanche”. Be gentle this year by not fighting against the currents or the waves of life. Let things flow naturally towards you.

Which Chinese Zodiac Sign Are You?

Your Chinese zodiac sign is based on your year of birth. Most Chinese people use Chinese New Year as the start of the zodiac year.

Generally,  the Chinese New Year begins in late January or early February.  Therefore, if you were born  in January, or  in the first 2 weeks of February, make sure to check the Chinese New Year date (the day the year changed from old to new) against your birthdate to determine your correct zodiac sign.  You may have more influences from the previous year because you may hold pre-birth energies of the previous year.

What is the Chinese Zodiac?

The Chinese zodiac, or Sheng Xiao (生肖), an ancient repeating cycle of twelve animal signs and their associated personality traits, is based on the Chinese lunar calendar.

The Chinese astrological system, which is originated in the Zhou dynasty (1122-271 B.C.), is one of the most complex among major star systems.

The Chinese zodiac is more about who you are and your predestined path rather than what you shoul or shouldn’t do.

The origin of the Tiger   

The most common legend used to explain the specific order of the animals in the Chinese zodiac is known as the “The Great Race.”     

 There have been several interpretations about the origin of the zodiac calendar.

The myth of the Great Race

Most of them agree it has its origin in the belief that Buddha or the Jade emperor invited animals to celebrate their relationship with humanity by eating and drinking together with humans.

While discussing the relationship, the different animals started to fight over their place. All of them wanted to be number 1.

Finally, they entered into the water river and the one who reached to the end first should be the winner. Thus each of the twelve animals has a unique color and name. There are some disagreements about the list of animals,

Characteristics of the Tigers 

People born in the Year of the Tiger were born in 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010, 2022.

In Chinese mythology, the tiger is called upon by the Jade Emperor, the ruler of heaven, to exorcise demons.

Given its status as a guardian, the tiger embodies archetypal characteristics of not only courage but also bravery. So the new year could also symbolize resilience and strength, even in times of struggle.

Known as the king of all beasts in China, the Tiger is a symbol of strength, exorcising evils, and braveness.

A year of the Tiger is considered a good year, often associated with the defeat of evil.

Tiger’s Personality

Chinese zodiac sign: tiger
Chinese zodiac sign: tiger (source: The Woks of Life)

Tigers’ positive qualities include being kind, quick-witted, resourceful, diverse, assured, adventurous and enthusiastic.

Their negative attributes can include being aggressive, short-tempered and anxious.

These are powerful individuals: authoritative, brave, and self assured with a strong moral compass and belief system.

They enjoy competition, or even fighting for a cause, but can sometimes struggle with their emotional and sensitive natures that allow them to be so passionate—sometimes becoming moody or intense.

When crossed, the combination of sensitivity and authority can make for a terrifying combination! They can sometimes find the more lighthearted or fickle animals of the zodiac silly or tiresome.

Tiger’s Career

Ideal Careers for tigers are  pharmacist, advertising agent, insurance agent, travel agent, lawyer, managerial positions, HR consultant, entertainment and broadcasting, actor, writer, artist, pilot, flight attendant, musician, comedian, and chauffeur.

Individuals with this zodiac are kind and benelovent people. They rarely feel tired and are often described as emotional people. At the workplace, individuals with this zodiac are often found in positions of leadership and power (just like in the jungle). However, in order to be a good leader, Tigers need to listen more to their colleagues, and think before acting.

Additionally, Tigers need change in order to thrive. 9 to 5 jobs often feel stagnant and meaningless to them. Because of their constantly fluctuating work schedule, these industrious people often live to work.
