Happy Chinese New Year! 2022 Year of the water Tiger
Tigers are born in the years – 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010, 2022
Tiger pounces into action with a mighty roar, to reignite our passions and infuse us with bravery so that we can make our next bold moves. It is time for us to embrace life and renew our devotions. Tigers are regal creatures, who move through the world with a stealth and determination that enables them to take risks that most would never dream of taking. They are also more sentimental and delicate than their bravado let’s on. And the Water Tiger is the most sensitive of them all. Fortunately, unlike other cats, Tigers are excellent swimmers. They possess the innate skills needed to navigate the depths and the tides of emotions. You, too, possess the skills to move through the world with stealth and bravery and grace. Tiger reminds us to trust our intuition. To be guided by our passions. To listen to our emotions. To follow our instincts. Under the watchful eye of our Spirit Guides, and the loving gaze of Mother Moon. The light and dark of the Moon are captured in the gold and black of the Tiger’s stripes. It’s all written on our skin. It’s all there. It’s all without and it’s all within. Have faith in these phases and cycles. Remember, you are a part of everything. Light and dark can co exist. Your softness is not a weakness. You are a creature of bravery and beauty. The world is waiting for you to pounce.
Tigers should wear red all this year to bring good luck to all their endeavours (such as a red wrist band).
