If you were born between the Start and Finish dates listed below, you are a Tiger person. The spirit of the Tiger lives in your heart. Depending on your year of birth, you will also have one of the five elements associated with your animal sign. Elements occur for two lunar years. The first year is Yang (+), the second is Yin (-).
There are many differences between the different element types of Tiger.
Below is a broad description of the Tiger personality.
The Tiger is the third sign of the Chinese horoscope. The Tiger is Yang and is fixed to the Wood element. The characteristics of the Tiger correspond to the occidental sign of Aquarius. Yang is positive, masculine, and associated with the Day. Objective Yang signs depend more on others than themselves. You tend to be outgoing and more physical than spiritual. As all opposites attract in nature, Yang attracts Yin. The Wood element association bestows a moralistic and ethical outlook to life. Wood people are self-confident and have better than average executive and persuasive abilities.
Tiger people are considered to be the luckiest of all signs. They are also associated with the most volatile of personalities and are famous for their bad tempers and impatience. You are ruled by emotion and will generally follow your heart rather than the your head. Tigers will always speak their minds – diplomacy is not your greatest asset. The old saying “fools rush in where angels fear to tread” could have been written with the Tiger in mind. In contrast, many Tigers find themselves racked with indecision at times.
You are optimistic, humanitarian, romantic and sentimental. The friends and emotional partners of Tigers are rarely bored in their company. The vivacity and audacity of the Tiger means that they will often be the center of attention; a position they enjoy. A dislike of being ignored and a sensitive ego can render you petty and vengeful at times. You remember insults forever.
The acquisition of wealth is not of prime importance to those of the third sign. You are also generally unconcerned with personal security and choose quite an unconventional lifestyle. Those who would attempt to force change or convention on a Tiger often have to fight for their lives and will come out of the situation as the loser.
Tigers are suspicious by nature and find difficulty in trusting others and taking advice. However, you are well able to cultivate lasting relationships when necessary. The most successful Tigers have an inner circle of trusted advisers.
Tiger parents do not generally spoil their children and control them well. The Tiger child is extremely lively, loud and curious. Parents should be careful to avoid domination by the child. Tigers will have the most fulfilling relationships with those born in the years of the Boar and the Dog. Relationships with Snakes and especially Monkey can be difficult.
