December 10 - December 16, 2018
While the month of the Pig ended on last week's New Moon, this is one where when you can take the Pig out of the game, but not the influence. For the Tiger, the month of the Pig is the most professionally focused, competitive and success driven month in any lunar year. Yet with the Year of the Pig beginning in February, this has been a stepping stone for bigger developments that once in play, will remain in play through to early 2020. So rather than drop off, this is a chance to keep things ticking over. In the meantime, you have reached the first full week of the month of the Rat and this is something that needs to be embraced. For the Tiger, the month of the Rat is the most social and serendipitous month of any lunar year and it will remain in play for the rest of the year.
2018 - Year of the Dog
There is something about the Year of the Dog that is always a bit of a honey trap, but it is one that you need to willingly embrace. A honey trap because the Year of the Dog is the most adventurous year in any 12 year lunar cycle, with the focus on adventure, travel, learning and discovery.
The Dog and Tiger are the best of friends and with the new lunar year starting on the month of the Tiger that support is there from the get go. Why this is a honey trap or maybe a bait and switch, is that the Year of the Dog is always followed by the Year of the Pig, a busy and often challenging professional year. Yet that is still a year away and it is during the Year of the Dog that you’re able to learn the skills that will serve you well during next year’s professional focus. Whether through study, travel or just gaining more knowledge and experience, you’re better able to achieve what you need to next year. One way to think of the Year of the Dog is to think of this as your ‘gap year’, a year where you can try new things, go new places and experience life, before knuckling down next year. However, that is not to say that this year won’t have its share of professional successes and in fact, the Dog will be helping to groom you for what comes next year.
This year is the stepping stone to next year’s professional growth. This makes the month of the Pig a lot more significant this year. Running from the 8th November to the 7th December, this is when you’re able to line up for the Year of the Pig, which starts on the 5th February 2019. As well as a year where there is a lot of opportunities for adventure, travel, learning and discovery, the Dog will also support matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative. That will be especially so during the month of the Horse, from the 14th June to the 13th July.
About the Tiger
The Tiger is warm, loving and dynamic. One is never bored in the company of a Tiger. They are independent and unpredictable. Tigers can sometimes be selfish in pursuit of fun for they are susceptible to being captured by sudden enthusiasm, causing them to alienate their friends. But they generally have great sympathies and understanding for others.
Tigers are aggressive and need to control their tempers. They always tell it like it is, but they are also intelligent and sensitive, so will be full of remorse if they upset you. Tigers are protective of their families and peers and often show great courage.
Tigers are brave and powerful. At times, they take risks to the point of recklessness. They can make hasty decisions without thinking of the possible consequences. Nevertheless, Tigers are natural born leaders and are often successful in money and career matters. But they do have a propensity to see-saw in triumphs and failures because of their rash behaviour.
In love, Tigers are highly emotional. They have a strong sex drive touched with good dose of sensuality. More likely to "sow wild oats" in they younger days than other signs, they do become more placid with age.
