Earth Tiger Chinese Zodiac
People who are born under the sign of the Tiger in the Chinese Zodiac are intense and magnetic individuals. No one says "no" to a Tiger, and if they do, the Tiger simply does not listen. Tigers are full of confidence and power, and when a Tiger sets his or her sights on a goal, that goal will be achieved, no matter how impossible it seems. In fact, the more people try to block a Tiger’s way, the harder he or she will work, because Tigers have a rebellious, competitive streak, and like nothing more than proving their detractors wrong.
Tigers are passionate, and everyone who sees a Tiger can tell that their civility masks powerful emotions. Tigers feel strongly for others, and hate to see another person being picked on or put down. A Tiger will stick up for someone else and fight against bullies with all the power he or she possesses, and that is a considerable amount of power!
In a relationship, a Tiger can be a little difficult. Tigers are passionate in the bedroom and very hardworking and loyal, but Tigers can be afflicted by self-doubt and mood swings. During these times, a Tiger needs one hundred percent support. A Tiger never wants to hear that he or she is wrong, and will not admit it. If a Tiger hurts your feelings, he or she will apologize with actions instead of words.
Tigers are natural candidates for leadership positions, and often find themselves in charge even if they did not volunteer for or want the position. Tigers hate to let people down and will work hard to inspire others and achieve change for the better.
When a Tiger is affected by the Element of Earth, the Chinese Zodiac says that he or she will be better able to focus without interruptions caused by his or her fiery temperament. These practical Tigers are much better at controlling their emotions. Although Earth Tigers still have a strong sense of right and wrong and will never hesitate to fight for what is right, they approach conflict in a more careful and controlled way. Because of this, Earth Tigers are far less likely to say something they will regret later in the heat of the moment.
An Earth Tiger is a powerful ally. Not only do they have strength, stamina, and no hesitation when it comes to standing up for their friends, but they are able to calmly assess a situation and bring all of the power of their intellect to bear. Earth Tigers are easier mates to deal with because they are more likely to consider consequences before acting.
An Earth Tiger will be better with practical matters, like finances, than other Tigers are. Since Earth Tigers do not get nearly as caught up in mood swings, they are less likely to throw away their savings on their latest project, or go on a shopping spree to improve a depressed mood. These Tigers are still wonderfully passionate and romantic, and you will never be bored in a relationship with an Earth Tiger.
