Welcome to the Year of the Tiger 2022!
Having just left the Year of the Ox, the Year of the Tiger begins on February 1st 2022 and promises to bring a lot of excitement and intensity with it!
This is typical of Tiger years and is typical of Tiger personalities in general. As the third sign in the Chinese Zodiac, the Tiger is known for its courage, dynamism, sensitivity, and rebellious streak. These colorful characters bring passion and excitement with them – there is never a dull moment when a Tiger is around!
If you are a Tiger, life is likely to be a whirlwind of drama and adventure for you. Laughs and cries are the norm. In Eastern Astrology, it is believed that a Tiger born during the day is likely to have a more hectic life than a Tiger born at night.
And if you know a Tiger, you have probably been swept up in their rollercoaster a few times!
The Tiger is a member of the Third Trine in Chinese Astrology. There are four Trines in total. The Third Trine consists of the Tiger, Horse and Dog – a group of creatures known for their humanitarian instincts and desire to change the world.
So when a Tiger year comes along, it’s time to hold onto your hats and get ready because the winds of change are coming!
What Chinese Zodiac Sign Are You?
To know what 2022 will mean for you, you first have to know your own Chinese Zodiac sign.
You probably already know, but if not then you can find out your Chinese Zodiac sign by inputting your date of birth here.
Remember, each Chinese Zodiac sign is accompanied by an element – fire, earth, water, metal and wood. If you were born a certain year, for example, you would be an Earth Snake, while in another year another Snake would be a Wood Snake, and so forth.
The elements bring different energies to the individual. Fire, for example, often brings passion and daring, while Water brings a calmer temperament and greater caution.
2022 is the Year of the Water Tiger. So while the Tiger itself is a dynamic and passionate soul, Water brings some well-needed stability and groundedness. With the presence of Water energy dominating this year, it means that the Tiger’s natural impulsive energy is reined in a little.

Big changes are coming for your relationships and in your business dealings. If you are planning on launching a business or have a business idea in mind, this year bodes well for you. Tiger energy brings you that magnetism and zest you need, especially if you have been feeling like you’re in a slump lately. Just watch out for Mercury Retrograde season and avoid signing important paperwork at that time, as things can go haywire!
There’s a radical change on the way for you and you might find yourself changing a number of things on a personal level, which could involve appearance, your home décor, and even your career. You need to be quite careful during Tiger years, as you are someone who prefers certainty and tends to dislike surprises. This Tiger year will be filled with them so make sure to prioritize the necessity of being able to adapt.
This is your year and it is going to be a mindblowing one for you. You may be called into a position of leadership and others will be looking to you for inspiration. Your voice is an important one this year and you may be called to the front line, championing a cause. Look behind you – there is an army at your back. So have faith in yourself and believe that you are able to achieve anything you set your mind to – because you can! Romance is also on the agenda, so be prepared for some unexpected revelations in that area throughout the year.
Huge transformation is ongoing for you during this Tiger year and you probably started feeling the effects of it in the Ox year of 2021. You’ve been forced out of your comfort zone and as much as you would like to just stay where you are, the universe has got bigger plans for you. The lesson for you this year is to work on your self-confidence. Tiger energy is brimming with confidence so it’s time to take a leaf out of the Tiger’s book and harness that confidence for yourself. So long as you stay on the right path and trust yourself, you will find success in your endeavors.
The Year of the Tiger promises to be a rollercoaster for you – expect the unexpected! There will be ups and downs, highs and lows, but perhaps the most significant aspect of it for you is demonstrating the strength of your power this year. It is likely you will be called into a position of authority or leadership which may test you to your limit. But you have a natural flair for getting things done and so long as you stick to your convictions and do what you feel in your heart to be true, you cannot go astray.
