Happy Lunar New Year!
The Aquarius New Moon is also the Chinese New Year! 2022 is the year of the majestic Tiger – an energy that’s daring, fearless, cunning and stubborn.
Previous Tiger years are 2010, 1998, 1986, 1974, 1962, 1950 and 1938.
I am not an expert in Chinese astrology but I think it’s fun to learn about astrology from other cultures and time periods. I’m curious to feel into the teachings of a new system and discover what it has to offer; I’m also interested in whether there might be any commonalities or overlaps. Tiger energy, for example, is very fiery and reminds me of both Leo and Sagittarius energies.
In Chinese astrology, the Tiger is smart, ambitious and determined. Tiger energy is passionate and expresses itself wholeheartedly. The year of the Tiger brings newfound inspiration, confidence and strength.
A Tiger year is one of extremes as well as dramatic shifts in power. There can be a tendency towards aggression and conflict, which needs to be balanced through diplomacy, compassion and humility.
The Water Tiger energy of 2022 brings heightened sensitivity to emotions. It’s also focused on craftsmanship, creativity and working with one’s hands.
The year of the Water Tiger brings a calling for thoughtfulness and patience. This energy points to measured growth, where expansion may be frustrated by temporary setbacks. The Water Tiger will help you find courage and persistence, combined with flexibility and open-mindedness.
