I’m a Virgo Tiger in the Year of the TIGER! Grrrrr…. Rawr…

Yeah, I know – a lot of people put no stock in astrology whatsoever. But, as you know, I’m “unique”. I think astrology is interesting and, if put in proper perspective and not used as an “end all” way of managing your life, it can really help people get in touch with their strengths and weaknesses, as well as help people learn more about other people.

This does not mean that I am not a Christian!!!  My feelings are, God created all the planets as he created man and everything God created was with a purpose - in a grand design that we have yet to completely comprehend.  Astrology, in my opinoin, is one of those little "helps" he has given us on our journey to become better people and find our way home.... 

Laugh at me if you will… (let me know when you’re through thankyouverymuch.) For what it’s worth, here’s some info about ME!

Western Astrology


Virgos adapt to different people and situations by finding ways to make themselves useful. To hide their vulnerability, they focus attention on what they’re doing rather than who they are. To deflect attention away from themselves, Virgos will also focus on other people by praising their talents and virtues, or by criticizing faulty behavior or personal imperfection.

Chinese Astrology

Let me preface this by indicating I am a WOOD TIGER. This year is the year of the METAL TIGER. There are four elements to every sign in Chinese Astrology. More on that another time… I will give the generalities of the Tiger and then follow it up with the more specifics about the Wood Tiger.

Tigers do not find worth in power or money. They will be completely honest about how they feel and expect the same of you. On the other hand, they seek approval from peers and family.

Generally, because of their charming personalities Tigers are well liked. Often, failing at a given task or being unproductive in his personal or professional life can cause a Tiger to experience a depression. Criticism from loved ones can also generate this type of Tiger reaction. Still, like all felines, Tigers always land on their feet, ready for their next act in life, pursuing it with unyielding energy and hunting it infallibly.

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.


The Wood Tiger is more adaptable to working with others and therefore does not demonstrate the typical "take charge" attitude of other Tigers. The Wood element adds stability, giving him warmth of character that draws people in and makes the Tiger a popular person. They are not selfish creatures and will give their time, attention or possessions to anyone in need. These Tigers bring a solid practicality to any problem. They can control their urges to completely take over, letting others do the work. They must be aware of their slightly volatile tempers and short attention spans, and not let those characteristics get the best of them or cause them or their loved ones undue pain.



These Tigers can be pretty picky when it comes to choosing a partner. They have an eye for detail that can cause them to be a little neurotic at times.

So, now you know a little more about me.  ;-)
