The Chinese Zodiac Astrology is ancient, interesting, accurate and loved by millions across the world. The Chinese Zodiac is based on cyclic concept of time : a cycle of 12 years, repeated again and again. The 12 Years are associated with 12 Celestial Animals : Rat (or Mouse on Mongoose), Ox (or Buffalo or Bull or Cow), Tiger, Rabbit (or Hare or Cat), Dragon, Snake (or Serpent), Horse, Goat (or Sheep or Ram), Monkey, Rooster (or Hen or Cock or Chicken or Phoenix), Dog and Pig (or Boar or Hog). The animal names occasionally differ with the Oriental Country they originate. The Chinese Yearly Horoscopes are basically built around these 12 Animal Signs.
Your Chinese Astrological Zodiac Animal Sign is directly based on the Chinese Lunar Year of Birth that you were born. The Chinese New Year is mobile and could start anywhere between 21st January and 20th February, depending upon the year. If your Date of Birth falls into any of the following Chinese Lunar Years, then, because you are born in the Year of the Tiger, you are symbolically identified by your Celestial Animal, the “Tiger” :
From 08 Feb 1902 to 28 Jan 1903

Not an easy year. Stick to what you know and do not get into challenges. Do not act on impulse but be patient. Rush and risk should be fully avoided. Respect and accept the ideas and suggestions of your friends and well-wishers. Certain scheming, shady, wile characters are “eyeing” you this year. Wear an Evil Eye Beads bracelet and carry the genuine, energized photograph of the White Tiger for your protection. Those who are employed will fare better than those who are self-employed. If you are an employee, lie low with your fantastic ideas and get prepared to toe the line of the rest. There will be frequent travels and gruelling hours of work – accept it bravely and consider it as a ground work for better times. Ignore hurting sarcasm and destructive criticisms. Keep to yourself and avoid complaining to superiors about provocation, as it could lead to their displeasure and ire. If opportunities of learning and/or training come your way, grab them. Some of you might get a change in working environment but this is not the right time for career switch. Many of you will relocate home while some of you may even migrate. The situation will be uncertain and will keep changing frequently. Things will turn around when they look most promising or most frustrating. Display the statue of Frog on Elephant or Monkey on Elephant in the North for career stability and carry a set of 3 Rising Dragon Coins for success luck. Guard against the betrayal from a trusted one – seek the blessings of the Mentor KuanKung and his protection. Those working in medical line, designing and professional sports will do better than the others. So will the insurance dealers, real estate agents and financial consultants. The self-employed will face many a hurdle and become battle-weary. There will be continuous challenges, pressure and attacks from the outside. Labor disputes and disharmony in the working environment will haunt you. Plan and work for long term goals to avoid disappointments. Install the statue of the Green Tara for overcoming the obstacles, exclusive Sacred Geometry Yantra focused on solving Labor Problems and carry the Fortune Flower Coins for the much needed success luck.
Average money luck can be expected. Those who get paid by the volume of work they do will get a major increment in their income. However wage earners will have to manage with just their regular income in spite of their added work loads. You should be able to pull through the year without any significant problems if you put a reality check on those extravagant spending of yours and have a tight control over your budget. Do not indulge in large purchases right now but wait for better financial times. Your gambling luck is down, so avoid impulsive involvement in the stock markets and lotteries. Do not go for new loans and do not don the role of a guarantor this year. Display the Brass Five Element Pagoda Tower to avoid heavy financial loss. Carry a set of 3 Batlock Coins for some increase in cash flow.
Physical strain and mental instability will be causes of major concern. Lack of rest and sleep will eat away your inner resources. Relax, rest and sleep as much as possible. Timely intake of food is essential. Drive carefully with road safety in mind. Accidents and injuries while travelling are highly probable. You may try to pre-empt the destined bloodshed by voluntary donation of your blood or by getting your teeth cleaned by a dentist. Those with past illness should watch out for possible relapse. Carry a set of 3 Sau Health Coins to address health concerns and MaZhu Travel Safety Plaque with you. Take care of the elderly family members living with you.
Your emotional detachment, loneliness and self-induced depression will sow internal tensions in the family harmony and instill cracks in the marital harmony. Even the smallest quarrel will magnify into deep misunderstanding. Some could even face separation. Control your temper and be more tolerant and caring. Place the statues of Male QuiYong on Dragon and Female QuiYong on Phoenix in the South West of your bedroom and keep a set of three Harmony Coins under your bed, before the problem gets out of control.
Focus fully on your studies and ignore the disturbing events happening around you, especially in your family. Try to differentiate between dream and reality at least now. It is an year of mobility and you may feel disoriented. Avoid getting into arguments of any kind and learn to live with the divergent views of others. Do not meddle into others’ love affairs and be sensitive to others’ feelings. Remember that the most important aspect of your present moment is nothing but marks and ranks. Installing the Dragon Head Turtle carrying Pagoda Tower in the North East will help you in this. Females born in 1986 should ban romantic thoughts and be determined to preserve their integrity and chastity, at all costs. Carry a set of 3 QuiYong Coins to instill discipline.
