You can anticipate an auspicious year, dear Tiger. Life is good in the year of the earth Pig.
It’s show time! The Chinese new year always begins with the new Aquarius moon, shining in the Tiger month of February this year. As always, you are a tiger burning bright, a big cat energetically ready for your next act.
The Pig is your friend, a supportive muse that is pampering and relaxing you. The Pig slows you down – slower even than last year. While you might find it frustrating, it is a good thing. Forced speed might change what could be a positive outcome in 2019. The universe and the Pig are helping you by inserting a few speed bumps along the way.
You are still confident, courageous, and energetic, just more earth centered. If you need a reminder, look at all you managed to do in the year of the earth Dog! You did well because your goals tied to the vibrations of the year and you were ready to receive the signals. You did it once. You can do it again.
Life is still colorful and filled with events this year, but things are more subdued. The earth element contributes gentleness. It is the essence to pick up through the animal zodiac. Yes, it signifies taming and domestication. A house cat, yes, but a person can only handle a house cat if the cat lets you. Most people consider themselves lucky if the cat lets them live in its house!
Xi xi yang yang: The wish is for good luck and prosperity all over in the Chinese year of the earth Pig.
Love shouldn’t mean that you have boundaries, set rules, and roles, or so thinks many a Tiger. An earthy year dedicated to solidifying relationships might not be your thing. However, a strong relationship continues to grow. This is one of your better years to address just that.
The biggest challenge for Tigers this year could affect everyone. It deals with communication. People don’t have a lot to say during a gentle, quiet yin Pig year. Your mission is to help loved ones communicate better. Beware of speaking for others. Just encourage talk by keeping the lines of communication open. Talk about problems, especially around the dual eclipses in July. The July 2 Cancer solar eclipse accents home and family in the 30 days following the event.
If you are a single Tiger looking for love, you could find the magic that makes life exciting in 2019. Fiercely territorial tigers hunt alone. Of course, they prefer their own company, as you may, too. That is okay. In this light, you aren’t looking if you don’t want to find, but you could find someone if you want to.
Love is in the air in the month of the Horse (June), the month of the Goat (July), and the month of the Dog (October). Your month of February is always good, and it is the month that begins the Chinese lunar year with the new Aquarius moon.
Family & Friends
Tigers are born leaders. Pigs are born social directors. It is a dynamic combination if you want life to be a round of parties. Chances are good that you don’t, but it could be if you wanted to.
Tigers like excitement and live for moments of adventure. You often combine the two in your social life. All you need to do is hang out with people who like to do what you like to do. Where are the skydivers and scuba divers and mountain climbers?
You might combine business with pleasure (which can be risky), but it will do your career good if you don’t try to organize a company strike at the hospitality bar. Having more heart than reason can sometimes be a bad thing.
Causes mean much to you, and a humanitarian cause might call to you this year. On March 6, Uranus, ruler of the Tiger month of February and early March, enters the earthy sign of Taurus. If ever you wanted to indulge your passion to collect money for a cause that’s close to your heart, this is the time. It could be a worthy focus of yours for the next seven years.
Your social circle is destined to change in the year of the Pig. It is the end of a cycle that has lasted twelve years. You’ll adapt when others won’t. It is a chance to encourage people to go where they need to go, whether they think they need to or not.
Life stays interesting with new experiences and new people. That is your style. You’ll never be pressured into social roles or rules, and this is why you will always enjoy yourself.
It is always an advantageous year when you can build on and continue from the previous one, like the year of the Dog. The Pig year is almost as good.
Your wisest supervisors and co-workers honor the words of the Ancients: The man who rides the Tiger cannot dismount. You need your space and you’ll produce if the higher-ups give it to you. Don’t let them get on your back by watching every move you make. Pigs leave you alone. Dogs do, too. Horses will. These are your years to shine. Your months to shine are February, March, June, October, and November.
On February 13, Mars conjoins Uranus. It is one aspect many consider volatile, but big cats feel the electric energy over the four days in a Tiger month. Mars gives you the will to win. Uranus lives up to its reputation as a planet of windfalls. A conjunction is the strongest aspect for cooperation, even from management. Mark your calendar.
This year is for slow and steady progress, even for a whirlwind Tiger. If you can’t hack it at your current job, or you’re looking for a new one, wait until either September or October.
Your money outlook is positive, but with a caveat: Don’t gamble. It is about hard work and careful investments in an earth year. Kudos to you if you created a base to expand on in the year of the Dog. You’ve got a nice foundation, and as boring as it might be, you can make stable, comfortable strides. Always utilize your talents for research and amassing information before you finalize decisions. Look for and find opportunities for safe investments this year.
This year, you have opportunities to put yourself on a better financial path. However, as there's money coming in, it's also going out. Consider automatic savings and/or investment plans. Look at what your employer offers in the way of retirement planning. Check out your bank's offerings to automate paying your bills. It will take a little effort to set up, but once it’s done you can know that your finances are working for you. You can be more prosperous very soon by plugging some of the holes where money is running out too quickly.
Harness your excess energy to take advantage of golden opportunities in the Year of the Metal Rat!
