What’s in store for the Year of the Tiger?

The Year of the Rat (2020) was about survival, and the Year of the Ox (2021) was about anchoring ourselves in a new reality. Sound familiar?

The Year of the Tiger will be about making big changes.

This will be a year of risk-taking and adventure. We’re finding enthusiasm again, both for ourselves and for others. Everyone is fired up, generosity is at an all-time high and social progress feels possible again.

The Tiger is associated with Yang (masculine, active) energy. Tigers do things their own way and do not like being told what to do. Expect things to rapidly change this year. Sudden disruptions in career, romance, and home life should be expected. Some of us will thrive through taking great leaps, while others might crash and burn. So while it’s important to follow our intuition and run with our wildest dreams, that means we also have to keep our egos in check.

In addition to the animals, the Chinese Zodiac also cycles through five elemental types.

This is not only the Year of the Tiger, it’s the year of the Water-Tiger.

Water years bring out our emotions more than any of the other elements. Water Tigers are family-oriented and have wonderful interpersonal relationships. Though they’re extremely driven and can be brash, their goal is always to do what’s best for everyone, not just for themselves.

Life is short so why not be happy?

This is a great year to pursue your creative side. Perhaps you have a book to write, or you have a painting to start? Maybe you want to redecorate and/or change it up in your home. I for one am looking forward to a better year for everyone. We’ve had a tough few couple of years… perhaps we’re all on the upswing now.

May you be exceedingly, generously, and joyfully blessed,©
