In the East, the Tiger symbolizes power, passion and daring. Rebellious, colorful and unpredictable, he or she instills respect in everyone around. An intrepid fighter, he or she wards off the 3 most serious disasters that could threaten or hit a family: fire, burglary and ghosts. The Tiger's impulsiveness and vivacity are contagious so it's great to be around those born in the Year of the Tiger. Their joie de vivre and vigor are stimulating. They are prone to a host of feelings but never indifference. In a word, the Tiger enjoys being the center of attention. Restless and rash, those born in the year of the Tiger crave action although being of a suspicious nature; this makes them prone to taking rash decisions. They find it hard to trust others and to keep a hold on their own emotions. When upset, they have to say exactly what they think. Those born in the Year of the Tiger have a certain humanitarian spirit, loving children, animals and anything else which takes their fancy. When they get involved in something, they give their all and everything else takes second place. The Tiger never does things by half and gives 100% when needed. Those with a more sensual side often have a passion for a Bohemian life when young. Some will always have this passion and go to Paris to try to find a romantic existence amongst the budding painters who show off their wares in the Parisian streets. As well as being an optimist, Tigers are neither materialistic nor obsessed by aspirations. They are unromantic and jokey but also passionate and sentimental. It is an unforgettable experience to love or marry one although jealously and possessiveness are possible...
