Year of the Tiger

The Tiger is the third Sign of the Chinese Zodiac. It is a Yang Sign and most closely associated with the Wood Element.

Tiger people are sensitive, given to deep thinking, capable of great sympathy. They can be extremely short-tempered, however. Other people have great respect for them, but sometimes Tigers come into conflict with older people or those in authority. Sometimes Tiger people cannot make up their minds, which can result in a poor, hasty decision or a sound decision arrived at too late. They are suspicious of others, but they are courageous and powerful.

In the bedroom, the Tiger is both romantic and passionate. If their is an attraction, the Tiger will probably be an aggressive pursuer. Tigers are usually faithful  but because they are passionate people, as mentioned above, they can be short tempered and a discussion may turn into an argument very quickly.


Tigers are most compatible with Horses, Dragons, and Dogs.
