Chinese New Year is one of the most important Chinese holidays and is sometimes called the Lunar New Year. 2022 is the Year of the Tiger, according to the Chinese Zodiac. The New Year commences on the 1st February 2022 and ends on the 21st January 2023.
Chinese tradition has named the years with animal signs – the rat, ox, tiger, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. Each animal has unique characteristics; these traits are seen, in people born in those years. The animals follow an established order and replicate every twelve years. The Tiger is the third sign of the zodiac cycle and is a sign of bravery, courageousness and fiery fighter and keeps away household tragedies – fire, thieves and ghosts.
If you were born in one of the following years, then; you were born during a Year of the Tiger: 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010 and now 2022. Tigers born in 2022 will be Water Tigers; they will demonstrate a strong sense of self and have a high learning capacity.
Those considered most compatible with the Tiger, are the horse, dog and pig. The worst matches are probably the goat, ox or snake. A tricky but not impossible love match would be the monkey.
Love & Prosperity
Positive trends show for matters of the heart for Tigers in 2022. Many will marry this year, and singletons have higher chances of finding a lasting love match. If you are mid 20’s-mid 30’s, now would be the time to be paying more attention to romance in your life.
In terms of wealth in 2022, this is not a spectacular year. Tigers will continue to work hard and get paid an honest wage for honest work. They are unlikely to get unexpected windfalls or achieve money through investing. Money relationships with others are not welcome this year.
People admire the Tiger because they are ferocious and domineering on the outside, but they are noble and distinguished on the inside. These are the same personality attributes that people will have who are born in the Year of the Tiger. Anyone born in the Year of the Tiger is usually straightforward and outgoing by nature. Tigers are clever, intuitive and generally well-liked because of their charismatic personalities.
According to legend Chinese New Year started with a fight against the Nien, a mythical beast; who would come the first day of the New Year and devour livestock, crops and people. To protect themselves, villagers would put out food believing that if the Nien ate the food from their doorsteps, it would not attack people. On one occasion, the Nien was scared away by a child wearing red. So, the villagers would hang red lanterns and red scrolls on windows and doors. They also used firecrackers to frighten away the creature.
