Year of the Tiger: Personality horoscope
Noble and proud, loyal and generous, the Tiger has an intense and permanent need to spend the inexhaustible energy that lies in him. As a risk-taker and fearful of monotony, the Tiger doesn't hesitate to change course without turning around, with the sole aim of being able to find a passionate environment that will allow him to revive the flame of his unique personality.
In the sentimental domain, the indomitable and libertine Tiger multiplies the conquests during his life, until he finally finds a partner able to satisfy his insatiable vital appetite. The Tiger will guide and love his partner as long as they continue to share the same degree of intensity. If the couple were in danger, the Tiger would be the first to break free of the relationship. However, he shall always withdraw with the grace and distinction that characterize him so well.
The tenacity, the courage and the leadership of the Tiger are undeniable advantages for the company which has the chance to count him as part of their staff. In order to make the most of the Tiger's talents, it is better to leave him a free hand and not to submit him to a strict hierarchy of which he would not bear the constraints. In business, the Tiger can become a formidable competitor, provided he masters his natural instincts and manages to become less egocentric and more patient. An excellent negotiator, the Tiger is a good speaker and he generally handles several languages with ease.
If he is dissatisfied or frustrated by a professional experience for which he had fully invested himself, the Tiger can decide to let go with reality and then venture into risky initiatives. He can count on his friends to make him aware that it is impossible for anyone, even him, to win every time and that it won't be long until he find all his superb again.
Finally, let's not forget that the Tiger, majestic and acrobat, always manages to fall back on his feet and to take the advantage of the most desperate situations.
