Elemental Tiger

The Metal Tiger :
This aggressive and ambitious Tiger who has a distinctive presence, one that rarely goes unnoticed. He knows exactly what his goals are, and will not stop until he achieves it (in a most radical fashion), even if he steps on some toes along the way. Passionate Metal Tigers want it yesterday, and things don’t work out the way he wants them to, he becomes edgy and volatile.

The Water Tiger:
Softened by the water element, this Tiger is one who instinctively understands the feelings of others, and is a superb communicator, who would do well in Public relations. She has an adventurous spirit, and is happiest when exploring new ideas and foreign lands. Less temperamental than her fellow felines, she is more realistic and an excellent judge of truth.

The Wood Tiger:
Here is a popular and charming Tiger, whose pleasing disposition enables him to work well with others and have hoards of friends. His innovative mind and talent for evaluating situations in a fair and sensible light makes him a brilliant politician, with a talent to bring those with the most disparate views together. No one is indispensable to this Tiger though, his loyalty is to himself, and once you leave his company (or are chucked out of his lair in a most diplomatic and almost pleasant way) don’t expect tearful pleas to return – you’ve already been replaced.

The Fire Tiger:
Add the element of fire to the already vital Tiger, and you have a veritable fire ball. Everything in his life is expressed in a dramatic, highly personal and enthusiastic manner, and he bounces from one place to the next, according to whatever catches his fancy. He believes wholeheartedly in anything he does, bringing about a unique and electric vivacity to any project he touches. A cock-eyed optimist, this action-oriented Tiger is only concerned with the present.

The Earth Tiger:
Irresponsibility and rashness are bywords of Tiger traits, but the earth Tiger breaks the mold. Emotions do not rule his actions, as he prefers to make level-headed decisions in his endeavors, enabling him to apply himself to areas he knows he can reasonably accomplish. This proud Tiger follows the solid road early in life, but once he’s reached the level of success, power and position he desires (social status and reputation is very important to him), he then allows himself to express what all Tigers are: revolutionary, unconventional and liberated.

    Tiger is actually said to be vivid, engaging and lively. One more attribute of Tiger is his bravery, evidenced in the willingness to engage in the battle or undying courage. Perhaps he is very brave because he is lucky. However, Chinese say the Tiger having Tiger in house is best protection against all the evils of burglary and fire.

    Tiger Years
    Tiger Years comes third in a cycle and recur twelfth year. Chinese New Year doesn’t fall on the specific date, thus it is necessary to check out calendar and find exact date in which Tiger year begins.
    Tigers don’t find worth in the power and money. They are totally honest regarding how they expect and feel of you. Alternatively, they also seek the approval from family and peers. Normally, due to the charming personalities the Tigers are often liked. Failing at the given task and being unproductive in personal and professional life will cause the Tiger to experience the depression. The criticism from the loved ones will as well generate this kind of the Tiger reaction. Still, all felines, the Tigers always land on the feet, set for the next act in their life, pursuing with the unyielding energy & hunting it infallibly.
    Tigers are as well incorrigibly competitive – they just can’t pass up the challenge, particularly when honor is on stake, and they are protecting people they love. The Tigers are unpredictable & will be unwise to underestimate the reactions. They might appear very cool, however they also have Big Cat’s instincts to pounce at moment’s warning. Being natural leaders, they have the strong sense of own dignity, and in case, they find themselves in ranks, they are stubborn & obstinate. In the positions of power they are hard though stimulating bosses. The tigers are alert, intelligent, and farsighted. They also have all their fingers on pulse. Good strategists & tacticians, often have the hidden agenda.
