The powerful and steadfast Ox makes his way off the stage the Tiger claims his throne. What general energy can one expect in 2022? It is interesting to note the symbolism of the tiger in Oriental folklore. The tiger is said to be able to scare away negative spirits/demons that cause ill health. Tiger energy acts and is brave against corruption and injustice.
The tiger is never to be taken lightly and this year will be no different. Expect dramatic and powerful transformational energy to predominate. Globally, it is associated with political upheaval with unrest/challenges to the current system/order. Expect weather to be unusual, with more severe storms. Athletes are favored under the tiger, but health must be watched as accidents are more common.
All the passion of the tiger also represents itself as a time romance and intense affairs. Just beware that you don’t allow your heart to overrule your head, and it can be an exciting year romantically. If you can tame the energy of the tiger, great success can be obtained. So how does your sign fair? Read your horoscope and take advantage of the color, gem, and aromatherapeutic energies to navigate your way through this powerful year.
TIGER (26, 38, 50, 62, 74, 86,98,10, 22)
In your own year you can expect great progress and achievement. You will feel as though a burden has been lifted as you leave behind the restrictive energy of the Ox. Enjoy the rush and potential of this year, be wise and plan for leaner years that aren’t as favorable.

RABBIT - (27, 39, 51, 63, 75, 87, 99, 11, 23)
Although your year is not until next year, you will begin to enjoy some of the prosperous benefits a Tiger year provides. Try not to let your worry for others dampen the positive aspects that present themselves this year, as most outside events will resolve themselves without your assistance. It is a good time to initiate new projects.

DRAGON - (28, 40, 52, 64, 76, 88, 00, 12, 24)
A very fortunate year for the Dragon. There will be plenty of opportunities for romance and business advancement. Don’t let it go to your head or spend needlessly on trivial items. Investigate future alliances carefully, as this year may bring some attractive offers, with less than desirable partners.

SNAKE - ( 29, 41, 53, 65, 77, 89, 01, 13, 25)
This will be a great year for personal reflection and reassessment. Are you heading in the direction you want to go? Are actions you have taken and plans that you have made in previous years developing the way you wanted them to? This is not a good year to implement new plans or to make a stand, but good to reassess to take advantage of the energy in future years.
Power Gem: White Calcite
Power Candles: Green & Red

HORSE - (30, 42, 54, 66, 78, 90, 02, 14, 26)
As the more restrained energy of the Ox recedes you will find yourself socializing and gaining opportunities to advance in business through these connections. There will be a tendency to make up for lost time and your free time may be filled with activities. Beware of spending too freely on these activities as you don’t want to accumulate unnecessary debt.
Power Gem: Citrine

Power Oil: Focus & Clarity
SHEEP - (31, 43, 55, 67, 79, 91, 03, 27)
It may seem that you don’t have firm footing and are unsure of the direction you should be taking this year. With a lack of assistance from others and a need to make many decisions, you will have to rely on yourself for the answers. Think of this time as an adventure and you will gain valuable insight and experience in the process.
Power Gem: Fossil Coral
Power Candles: White & Blue
Power Oil: Solar Plexus
MONKEY - (32, 44, 56, 68, 80, 92, 04, 28)
You may feel out of sorts during this time as nothing seems to create stable footing. It is important to focus on the glass half full, to avoid depression and lethargy, when your plans seem to go nowhere or in directions you did not expect. Not a year for direct involvement. Let things flow and take charge in another year.

OX - (37, 49, 61, 73, 85, 97, 09, 33)
Although your energy is very different than the tiger, the Ox has the fortitude to push forward. You may be tempted to overspend or speculate, and it is best not to take any unnecessary chances or risks this year. Small annoyances or disruptions may seem numerous and energetically taxing, but there is nothing that will ultimately keep you down. Next year provides plenty of opportunity to make up for anything this year will lack.
