Year of the Tiger

Restless, anxious and unpredictable, Tigers can be as cruel as they are kind. It ain’t easy being one of nature’s most fearsome predators! Tigers’ presence is at times unsettling, but it’s also exciting. Perhaps it’s their hint of danger. Competitive Tigers love a good power game. They know what they want, and will plot and obsess until they get it. Like a tiger circling its prey, teasing the victim before making a deadly pounce, cunning Tigers have killer instincts. Extremely driven, they take failure badly, and obsess over hard-to-reach goals. While they do achieve the impossible, it’s often at a high price. Still, most Tigers won’t back down from a challenge. They’re too afraid of losing their place at the top of the food chain. Obsessing over this, however, can make Tigers come across as threatened, rather than confident. Learning to relax and be satisfied with what they have is an important Tiger lesson.
