2022 is the Year of the Water Tiger. According to the Chinese zodiac, Tigers are brave, ambitious, analytical, restless –  and sometimes a bit reckless. Like an apex predator in the jungle, they take what they want. Obviously this energy has some pros and cons for relationships.

The good news is that the Water Tiger is considered the most open-minded and calm of the Tigers. Like any Tiger, they love new experiences. But even while they are striving to make changes, they stay calm and logically think through problems.

Water Tigers usually don’t get mad, even in difficult situations. They’re ready to accept new ideas, and can look at things objectively. The element of Water softens the character of the Tiger, and makes them more charitable and philanthropic.

Water Tigers can be very perceptive about people’s true feelings and needs, so this can be a year of new beginnings that make the world better for everyone.
