Are you putting enough a tiger in your tank!
Well, it´s a terrific year if you happen to be born in 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010 or even 2022 as it’s now your Year of the Tiger.
Infact, those of us born in 1962 or even in this year of 2022, you are, as you already probably know, a Water Tiger. Bringing to us all some strength, exorcising all evils, and showing an abundance of braveness. Well done! Now, if we go back 2000 years to the Qin Dynasty you will know that the Jade Emperor challenged all the animals in his Kingdom to a “Great Race”. Whoever arrived at his palace first would win his favor. The Tiger was very sure that he had the race in the bag, just look at the competition. Alas he ended up coming third after the cunning Rat and the workhorse Ox snuck in just ahead of him. Thus, Tigers are of course extremely competitive, known for their courage and ambition. They may even be ambitious, but they are also extremely generous with a drive to help others. Tigers want to win, by nature, and they are also always seeking a certain amount of justice.
The Year of the Rat (2020) was about survival, and the Year of the Ox (2021) was about anchoring ourselves in a new reality. The Year of the Tiger (2022) will be about making big changes. This will be a year of risk-taking and adventure. We are finding enthusiasms again, both for ourselves and for others. Everyone is fired up, generosity is at an all-time high and social progress feels possible again. Thank goodness for all of that!
