Happy Chinese New Year!

Year of the Water Tiger


In Chinese astrology, there is a complex cycle made up of 10 heavenly stems and 12 earthly branches.


Heavenly stems are associated with Yin Yang and the five elements of Taoism: wood; fire; earth; metal; and water. Each earthly branch is associated with one of the twelve animals of the Chinese zodiac. Every year, a heavenly stem is paired with an earthly branch. 2022 is the year of the Water Tiger!


“Yang-Water is connected to flowing water, rivers, or clouds. Tiger is in the Wood group. Tiger mainly contains Yang-Wood, which is a tall tree. It also contains Yang-Fire and Yang-Earth. Yang-Fire is related to the sun and Yin-Earth is related to the mountain. Tiger is a tall tree on the mountain under the sun. Tiger is a symbol of power, prestige, and loneliness .... The Water of 2022 helps the tree of the Tiger grow taller and stronger. That means 2022 brings strong Wood energy to people.”
