Chinese New Year

Happy Chinese New Year! As many around the globe welcome the year of the rat, I thought it would be fun to share what year I was born in: the year of the tiger. According to fables passed down the ages around the tiger lunar year, the following attributes apply:

Tigers are also incorrigibly competitive – they simply cannot pass up a challenge, especially when honor is at stake, or they are protecting those they love. Tigers are unpredictable and it would be unwise to underestimate their reactions. They may appear cool, but they have the Big Cat’s instincts to pounce at a moment’s warning. Natural leaders, they have a strong sense of their own dignity, and if they find themselves in the ranks, they can be stubborn and obstinate. In positions of power they can be difficult though stimulating bosses. Tigers are intelligent, alert, and farsighted. They have their fingers on the pulse. Good strategists and tacticians, they often have a hidden agenda. As long as they do not risk their luck too often, and keep their restless nature under control, their tactics usually pay off in life.”

While I don’t believe in astrology, the above is pretty accurate aside from the hidden agenda. I highly value honesty and try to be genuine with others.

Which are you? Do you believe the archtype represents you? Tagging Javier, Mukund, Scott, Damien, and Ling ling (spoiler: she’s a dog).
