September 19 - September 25, 2022
The month of the Rooster is drawing to a close and while it will run through to Sunday, next Monday's New Moon will already be ushering in the adventurous month of the Dog. For the Tiger, this is always the most exciting month of any year but its influence is likely to be a lot more potent this time, for it will be playing out during the Year of the Tiger for the first time in 12 years. As the Dog and Tiger are the best of friends, this will not only give a sense of wanderlust, curiosity and adventure a boost but will be personally empowering. Until then, the final days of the month of the Rooster are a chance to get on top of money matters and especially during a Rooster Moon that begins on Friday.
Year of the Tiger
Feb 1, 2022 - Jan 21, 2023
In the same way that every lunar year ends on the month of the Ox and begins on the month of the Tiger, the Year of the Tiger also follows on from the month of the Year of the Ox. This means that the New Moon on 1st February that brings us to the Chinese New Year will not only usher in the month of the Tiger but the Year of the Tiger as well. In one fell swoop, the Ox’s influence and its focus on the past is gone, replaced by a doubling of the focus on the future and new beginnings. On 1st February a new personal 12 month and 12 year lunar cycle will start in unison, opening the doors to not just new beginnings but to a new journey towards finding yourself, your sense of purpose and your path forward.
Exactly a month after moving into the year, New Year’s Day and any resolutions you may have made then will become redundant, for this is the point when not only the Year of the Tiger begins but the point when 2022 itself begins. Just moving into the month of the Tiger itself is significant, bringing you back to your native energy but also with a chance for a reset. This is something that happens every 12 months, always on the Chinese New Year and this is when you not only move into a new lunar year but a new personal 12 month lunar cycle. The difference this year is that this is not just any lunar year you are moving into but the Year of the Tiger and that means you are also moving into a new personal 12 year lunar cycle.
This is something that happens once every 12 years and brings you to the start of a major new 12 year life cycle, with a chance for a major reset and for major new beginnings. This also brings you to a year that is governed by the Tiger so in fitting with your personality and the way you approach life. This could be a year for some big changes. In the same way that everything experienced over the last 12 years can be traced back to the last Year of the Tiger in 2010, everything that you will experience over the next 12 years can be traced back to the new beginnings that you will embark on over the next 12 months. This is the point for you when 2022 begins, with the Year of the Tiger a journey that will take until 23rd January 2023 to complete.
About the Tiger
The Tiger is warm, loving and dynamic. One is never bored in the company of a Tiger. They are independent and unpredictable. Tigers can sometimes be selfish in pursuit of fun for they are susceptible to being captured by sudden enthusiasm, causing them to alienate their friends. But they generally have great sympathies and understanding for others.
Tigers are aggressive and need to control their tempers. They always tell it like it is, but they are also intelligent and sensitive, so will be full of remorse if they upset you. Tigers are protective of their families and peers and often show great courage.
Tigers are brave and powerful. At times, they take risks to the point of recklessness. They can make hasty decisions without thinking of the possible consequences. Nevertheless, Tigers are natural born leaders and are often successful in money and career matters. But they do have a propensity to see-saw in triumphs and failures because of their rash behaviour.
In love, Tigers are highly emotional. They have a strong sex drive touched with good dose of sensuality. More likely to "sow wild oats" in they younger days than other signs, they do become more placid with age.
