Wood Tiger Chinese Zodiac
Of all the signs in the Chinese Zodiac, the Tiger is the quickest to fight for an obscure and undefended cause. Tigers have energy and passion to spare and don’t feel quite right without conflict in their lives. Tigers can be quite dramatic, and will feel depressed and bored if their lives are too easy. That is why you will often see Tiger people passionately defending an underdog.
Since people born as Tigers according to their Chinese horoscope have such a need for fight and conflict, they often have intense relationships with others. Tigers are too proud to apologize, but will show by their actions when they know they have done wrong, and will make amends without verbally saying "sorry." If you are in love with a Tiger, be prepared to be burned from time to time-although your Tiger mate will more than make up for it with the passion he or she exudes.
Tigers are very sexual creatures, and may occasionally have problems with fidelity. However, once a Tiger is completely committed, he or she will not betray you. Tigers are very loyal to family, friends, and colleagues, and will never let you down. If you’ve betrayed a Tiger, however, watch out! The anger of a Tiger burns hot, and they hold grudges for a very long time.
Tigers have a lot of confidence and power held inside them, and other people sense this. As a result, Tigers can often be found in positions of power-but they have a hard time climbing the corporate ladder because of their individualistic personalities and their tendency to rebel. When a Tiger is in charge, it’s because he or she broke away and started his own company, not usually because he or she impressed the right people.
According to the Chinese horoscope, the element of Wood has a calming influence. Therefore, those born under the Chinese Zodiac sign of the Tiger who are tempered by Wood are more level-headed than most Tigers. They are more capable of taking time to think and reflect before jumping right into a situation, and are therefore much less likely to get into fights.
Wood Tigers are still more than willing to stick up for a friend in need. If you have a battle that you are too nervous to fight yourself, having a Wood Tiger by your side is always beneficial. Wood Tigers are not as rebellious as other Tigers are, but they still know how to take care of a problem quickly, and are not afraid of confrontation.
Wood Tigers are very generous and giving. Not only are they fiercely loyal and willing to defend their friends, but they also work tirelessly to help out a friend in need. Wood Tigers may be prone to spreading themselves too thin, and should remember to take time to calm down and recharge.
