What Does Year of the Tiger Mean?

2022: Year of the Water Tiger

Chinese Astrology

February 1st, 2022 marks the beginning of the Year of the Water Tiger. Similar to Western astrology, Chinese astrology has 12 zodiac signs which are represented by animals. However, the zodiac sign seasons last all year long - unlike Western astrology’s four-week seasons. It also includes the five elements- wood, water, metal, earth, and fire.

In Chinese Astrology, the year of the Tiger is said to bring sudden change and can shift the balance of power and money. The Tiger is the ultimate rebel of the Chinese Zodiac questioning authority and working towards change. The Tiger is ruled by Uranus, the planet of individuality and freedom.

Tiger Symbolism

The tiger possesses a winning combination of strength, beauty, independence, and shrewd perception., signalling that this Lunar year ahead is one where we can conquer our fears and go for our goals. The tiger spirit animal inspires you to become the master of your domain, whether that is in a field of knowledge, skill – or even mastery over yourself so that you can be the person you were meant to be.

What the Year of the Tiger means for you?

Self-acceptance and how we feel about ourselves determines our quality of life, how we are treated in relationships, in business, and beyond.

This year is all about honouring yourself, taking care of yourself, and forming an intuitive voice from within “the Self,” which then becomes your natural source of guidance.

The Tiger therefore relates to personal growth and activating that independent strength and wills you to have courage and conviction in your sense of internal power within the external world.

There is no dream too big or ambition too great in the year of the Tiger! Harness your inner warrior, fight for what you believe in, and let Tiger energy bring out the power within. The year of the Tiger allows us to tap into our own inner power and know that there is nothing we can’t achieve when we put our mind to something.

Remember that the Tiger is a patient creature that takes time to stalk its prey and make its move. While we can absolutely leap and make daring strides, we also have to be patient and trust that things will align in perfect timing. Just like the tiger hunts for its prey, we can make calculated moves but also be patient and wait for the perfect opportunity to pounce.

Tigers march to the beat of their own drum and are especially known for their courage – and they need plenty of it if they wish to be the change they wish to see in the world!

We may see this manifesting in the world around us as we collectively begin to review what we truly value. Western Astrology also supports this idea for 2022. As planetary energies look likely to change the things we value and the things that we deem as worthy on both a personal and societal level.

Our values are up for review, and with this review, we may find that we begin prioritizing new things and ways of being in our own lives.

What do you believe in? Say it!

What do you support with heartfelt passion? Feel it. Say it!

What do you want the world around you to look like for your children and loved ones? Start to embody it!

Tune in to Tiger's energy. Be a force of Nature. Let Life and Love flow through you.

Lead others. Carry others. Support others - journey together towards freedom

What does the Water Tiger Mean?

The element of water enhances the intuitive energies of the 2022 Lunar New Year. The water element works in our favour because it helps to temper the raging sea of emotions and enables us to think logically and reasonably about all of our experiences.

Taking extra steps to protect your energetic body is going to be important this year, and we can do so by working with the healing powers of water.

The element of water also indicates we have to be willing and ready to go with the flow this year. We may find it hard to feel stable or secure in our footing, but if we join the rhythm of the waves we will have a much easier time than trying to fight against them.

Western Astrology also supports this idea with Jupiter being most of the year in the water sign of Pisces. While in Pisces, Jupiter will also join Neptune, the God of the Sea, enhancing the creative and intuitive force of the element of water.

In the year of the Water Tiger, and with Jupiter and Neptune both in Pisces, the element of water will be extra strong. We may also see this reflected in mother nature with an increase in rainfall or even flooding or tidal waves.

Self Care and the Healing Qualities of Water

Water holds vibration, so charging up a glass of water before we drink it, setting an intention before getting into the bath or shower, or spending time in the ocean are all ways we can connect with the healing powers of water.
