YEAR OF THE METAL TIGER
February 14, 2010 – February 2, 2011
As the Metal Tiger descends upon us this year, expect to see much activity in all aspects as hot passion will combine with coldness. This promises us that serious obstacles will be faced but with determination, cool calculating minds plus courage we can surmount the problems before it overwhelms us. Since this is a Metal year, those who were born during an Earth year will generally fare better than others of their animal sign. Wood types are well advised to prepare as best as they could for they face a challenging year. It will also be slightly negative for those of the Fire types while Water types will feel it’ll be slightly positive for them. Lastly, Metal types will be in their element and may do quite well if their animal sign is compatible with the Tiger but are still advised to keep
their guard up as unexpected surprises will spring along the way. To sum it all up, 2010 will be a year of ups and downs. This will be true to all may it be an individual or a group. A time of changes, adventure and thrills. Those who seek peace best be prepared to defend themselves as there will be folks who will try to take that away. *The Tiger is compatible with the Horse and Dog. Its secret friend is the Pig. It is in conflict with the Monkey. RAT 1900 1912 1924 1936 1948 1960 1972 1984 1996 2008
