Year of the Tiger-2010
I'm almost recovered from the celebration in San Francisco Saturday. Almost. I took a lot of pictures, but these are my best shots. I'm standing at the corner of Market and Geary. Forgot my camera so had to use my cell. Loved this tiger when he pranced by.
I found out that the "tigers" are many things--not all good. According to this horoscope I shouldn't be attending any family functions.
2010 is a White Tiger wearing armor. This Tiger doesn't like armor on the top of its body and keeps jumping around. For safety, we should keep our distance from it. That's why many Chinese don't like White Tiger. It has the potential to become vigorous, ferocious and cruel. The Tiger is a symbol of power and authority. This kind of personality is good for leadership, but has an inflexible and destructive personality. Tiger has very poor people relationship, especially, with family members. In traditional Chinese families people born in the year of the Tiger aren't invited to private wedding ceremonies.
Well, *Inserts loud raspberry here.* I decided to keep looking until I found a better description of my year.
The Year of the Tiger is the third year in the cycle of “Heavenly Branches”. Customarily, it is called “Yin”. Those born in the Year of the Tiger are compatible with the horse, dog, and
dragons since I love to write about them.
What's your Chinese sign? If you're a horse or a dog or a dragon that's great. We're going to get along beautifully. If you're a member of my family--look out. It seems we're in for a rough ride.
