January 31, 2022 PST but February 1 in China is a new Moon in Air sign Aquarius. The new Moon in Aquarius begins CHINESE NEW YEAR. Chinese New Year is the second new Moon after Winter Solstice, in late January or early February of the Gregorian calendar.

The first month of the lunar year is always a Tiger month. 2022 begins with a Water Tiger month in a Water Tiger year. Double Water Tiger!

The year of the Tiger is explosive, wildly creative, big, and bold. It’s a time of extremes when all of life’s activities will be experienced on a grand scale. Tempers flare, drama and excitement reign, and crazy dreams can become reality. Expect massive social change, political rebellions, and military coups.

Tiger is grand, daring, powerful, independent, creative, and dynamic. Tiger individuals value freedom, are adventurers, and don’t ever want to be caged in or held back. No matter how many obstacles stand in the way, Tiger’s courage will not diminish. Tiger attacks with unique swiftness and stealth. Tiger actions show a combination of style and power. No one can tell Tiger what to do, Tiger stands out in the crowd, and Tiger is a free thinker who never conforms.

Four mighty Tigers guard the four directions:
North is guarded by the black Water Tiger who represents winter.
East is guarded by the green Wood Tiger who represents spring.
South is guarded by the red Fire Tiger who represents summer.
West is guarded by the white Metal Tiger who represents autumn.
The center is guarded by the yellow Earth Tiger who represents the sun.

The Chinese god of wealth, Hsai Shen, rides a Tiger that brings good fortune. All Tigers scare off thieves, ghosts, and fires. Therefore, Tiger is a formidable animal totem to contact in the shamanic realm to assist in banishments and purifications.

 

 The Element Water

2022 is a Water year of the five Taoist elements Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood. In feng shui, the Water environment is cool, dark, and soothing. The room of the home is the bathroom. This year, design your bathroom to be a private healing sanctuary to take long, healing baths. Bathing can be a quiet respite from the strong energy of Tiger year.

The most favorable season in a Water year is winter. In Chinese medicine, Water rules the kidneys (and bladder). This year, and next year Water Rabbit 2023, is the time to see an acupuncturist and take herbs for kidney balance if you experience health issues with urination, sleep, dreams, or other Water imbalances.

 

Your Fortune in Water Tiger Year

Rat
Birth years of the Rat: 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020.
Next year of the Rat is 2032.

Tiger and Rat are very different astrology signs with very different temperaments. Tiger makes life decisions based on impulse, whereas you Rat prefer to plan and analyze. So do not get swept up in Tiger year excitement. Instead, be pragmatic and thorough. Avoid confrontations, especially lawsuits, because protocols might not be observed in a Tiger year. Rat likes rules because you can figure out a way around them. But in Tiger year, no one follows any rules. Tiger’s explosive energy can bring inspiration, yet Tiger’s changeable energy could bring instability for the usually cautious Rat. This is not your year to get rich quick. Plan that for Dragon year 2024. Dragon is your powerful ally. If others see you as calculating this year, know that Rat logic differs from Tiger instinct. Your best months are April, August, and December, and winter is your best season. The element Water empowers Water Rat born in 1972, and Wood Rat born in 1984.

Ox (Buffalo)
Birth years of the Ox: 1913, 1925, 1937,1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009, 2021.
Next year of the Ox is 2033.

Have some fun in Tiger year! You’ve been working hard! But stay true to your Ox nature of being reliable and strong. Others can take wild risks or enjoy caprices in a Tiger year, but it’s not in your best interest to do so. Instead, build on the respect received and solid gains made in your Ox year 2021. Tiger energy can bring unexpected problems, so stay the course and be diligent and conscientious in your work. Oxen born during Tiger month (February), on Tiger day, or during Tiger hours (3am – 5 am) have an easier time adapting to abrupt changes in plans and the lack of structure during a Tiger year. Your best months are May and September, and your best season is winter. The element Water empowers Water Ox born in 1973, and Wood Ox born in 1985.

Tiger
Birth years of the Tiger: 1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010.
Next year of the Tiger is 2022.

Go for it, Tiger! Free-spirited, powerful, and adventurous Tiger gets many lucky breaks this year. So follow your hunches and instincts. This is your year to experience good fortune, recognition, protection, and benevolence. Say yes to every opportunity. Love is found if single, or if in a partnership love deepens and is celebrated. Plan for big parties in spring and summer. Just refrain from overspending or being overly generous with gifts. Tigers are empowered by the energy of their own year. February, June, and October are your best months, and autumn is your best season. Luck is strongest for Water Tiger born in 1962, and Wood Tiger born in 1974.

Rabbit (Hare)
Birth years of the Rabbit: 1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011.
Next year of the Rabbit is 2023.

The impulsive, explosive energy of Tiger year is entertaining. But it can, at times, be excessive for Rabbit’s peaceful, gentle nature. Unplanned changes and too much excitement can even effect your health. If scattered or overwhelmed, stay calm, conserve your energy, and be the peacemaker. Find solace in Water in this Water year with baths, saunas, and going to lakes, rivers, or the ocean. Transform your bathroom into a luxurious home spa. You start a new life cycle next year in Rabbit year 2023 so for many Rabbits this is the year to tie up loose ends and complete cycles. March, July, and November are your best months, and spring is your best season. The element Water empowers Water Rabbit born in 1963, and Wood Rabbit born in 1975.

Dragon
Birth years of the Dragon: 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012.
Next year of the Dragon is 2024.

The two power animals of the Chinese zodiac are Dragon and Tiger. You, Dragon, can look forward to and enjoy Tiger year’s wild activities, sudden changes in plans, and changing relationship dynamics. You can experience success, celebrations, and good opportunities. But you can also be challenged this year if your plans are blocked by others, or if others won’t follow your Dragon lead. By year end, it is clear that Dragon is stronger than Tiger. Still, avoid power struggles or lawsuits because Tiger has a temper, and you can lose battles even if you win the war. Your lucky cycle is Dragon year 2024 so keep focus. April, August, and December are your best months. Spring is your best season. The element Water empowers Water Dragon born in 1952 and Wood Dragon born in 1964.

Snake
Birth years of the Snake: 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013.
Next year of the Snake is 2025.

Brash Tiger energy is very different from Snake’s refined sensibilities. The bold activities of others could result in difficulties or calamities, so refrain from overreacting or being codependent. Use your Serpent wisdom to cool down Tiger-year hot heads. Introspection and meditation bring rewards. A good use of vital Tiger year energy is to pursue your interest in the arts. In your career, build on what you accomplished in Ox year 2021. Your best months are May and September, and your best season is spring. The element Water empowers Water Snake born in 1953, and Wood Snake born in 1965.

Horse
Birth years of the Horse: 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014.
Next year of the Horse is 2026.

Happy times for the Horse! Horse is Tiger’s best friend, along with Dog. This Tiger year is your lucky chance to race off to greener pastures, and gallop after new opportunities. For some Horses, this is a chance to  really run free after the constricting previous Ox and Rat years. But for all Horses, it is fortunate to start new endeavors of all kinds from opening a business, buying a home, getting married, or having a baby. Anticipate lucky change and fortunate travel opportunities. Tiger year brings fun, frolic, and enjoyment of friends and family. Entertainment may be expensive, but this is the time for Horse to live well. February, June, and October are your best months, and your best season is summer. The element Water empowers Water Horse born in 2002 or 1942, and Wood Horse born in 1954 or 2014.

Sheep (Goat, Ram)
Birth years of the Sheep: 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015.
Next year of the Sheep is 2027.

Anticipate fun and exciting times for us Sheep. Sheep will be more social, and travel is fortunate. But don’t become depleted by Tiger year distractions. Tiger has endless energy, but not Sheep. So maintain your energy and practice self care. Think before you indulge, overspend, or make a commitment. March, July, and November are your best months. Summer is the luckiest season; winter is not. An even luckier year for Sheep will be Rabbit 2023 so don’t be melancholic during the winter of this Water year. The element Water empowers Water Sheep born in 2003 or 1943, and Wood Sheep born in 2015 or 1955.

Monkey
Birth years of the Monkey: 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016.
Next year of the Monkey is 2028.

Tiger and Monkey are opposites. So the spotlight is not on Monkey this year, and you do not like to be ignored. You’re a natural leader, but no one is a follower in a Tiger year. Your usual support systems that you rely on might not be there. So don’t rely on others. Be more independent and resourceful. To avoid challenges, it’s best to build on your current foundation and not engage in too many new projects. Your best months are April, August, and December, and your best season is summer. The element Water empowers Water Monkey born in 1992, and Wood Monkey born in 2004 or 1944.

Phoenix (Rooster, Chicken)
Birth years of the Phoenix: 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017.
Next year of the Phoenix is 2029.

Ox year 2021 was a good year for you. So build on your successes by continuing the Ox energy of being patient and methodical. Tiger year brings enthusiastic energy and exciting changes for you Phoenix. And you see opportunities for rebirth. But events can occur so quickly in a Tiger year that you could lose control. So keep a critical eye, strong boundaries, and not get swept up in Tiger year passions. Maintain balance amid your new Tiger year activities. Your best months are May and September. Autumn is your best season. The element Water empowers Water Phoenix born in 1993 or 1933, and Wood Phoenix born in 2005 and 1945.

Dog
Birth years of the Dog: 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018.
Next year of the Dog is 2030.

This is your lucky year! Dog and Tiger are extremely compatible, along with Horse. Good fortune and strong energy are with you to know love and happiness. Dog experiences all kinds of windfalls and favors including financial good luck. Time for a pay raise, promotion at work, or new more beneficial career. You appreciate Tiger year’s directness and quick problem solving that helps you cover much ground. Enjoy an excellent year as the consciousness of Tiger year inspires you to change the world. February, June, and October are your best month, and autumn is your best season. The element Water empowers Water Dog born in 1982, and Wood Dog born in 1994 or 1934.

Pig (Boar)
Birth years of the Pig: 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019.
Next year of the Pig is 2031.

Exciting times! Your dreams can be fulfilled because Tiger and Pig are close allies. Luck is with you in all endeavors including romance. Finally, you have opportunities for adventure, advancement, and travel — especially after staid Ox year 2021. Tiger year 2022 and Rabbit year 2023 create a very good fortunate two-year cycle for all Pigs. March, July, and November are your best months. Autumn and winter are your best seasons. The element Water empowers Water Pig born in 1983, and Wood Pig born in 1995 or 1935..
