Tiger - Chinese Animal Zodiac


Chinese Animal Zodiac Sign of the Tiger


The use of the animal names in the calendar led to the development of Chinese astrology. Astrology can be defined as a pseudo-science linking human destinies to charts associated with heavenly bodies or the recording of time. The Chinese believed the characteristics of a given zodiac animal influenced the personality of every person born in that year. They used this information to create horoscopes, daily predictions based upon the year of one's birth. Although the reading of horoscopes is popular in modern Chinese culture, few people take the predictions seriously.

I am the delightful Paradox.
All the world is in my stage.
I set new trails ablaze;
I seek the unattainable,
And try the untried.
I dance to life's music
In gay abandon.
Come with me on my carousel rides
See the myriad colors,
The flickering lights.
All hail me the unparalleled performer.

I am the Tiger.



2010 is the Year of the Tiger. Drama, intensity, change and travel will be the keywords for 2010. Unfortunately, world conflicts and disasters tend to feature during Tiger years also, so it won’t be a dull 12 months for anyone. The Year of the Tiger will bring far reaching changes for everyone. New inventions and incredible technological advances have a good chance of occurring.


For all of the Chinese horoscope signs, this year is one to be active – seizing opportunities and making the most of our personal and very individual talents.


Everything happens quickly and dramatically in a Tiger year – blink and you could miss an important chance of a lifetime!
