Chinese New Year — Embodying The Water Tiger Energy

Last week we had the New Moon in Aquarius which is heralding the start of the Lunar Year.

What it also represents in Chinese Astrology is the shift to a new governing animal zodiac sign.

As you probably know, Chinese Astrology consists of 12 zodiac signs, each symbolized by a different animal, along with one of the five elements: wood, water, metal, earth, and fire.

This year, starting on January 31 or February 1, 2022 we see the Water Tiger taking center stage.

The Year of the Water Tiger brings the perfect energy to move us all forward into 2022 with a grand total of zero retrograde planets right now!

It’s a great moment to push yourself forward into new projects, explore brand new creative endeavors, take positive risks and leap boldly into the unknown.

Think about what you really want and get super clear about your intentions.

From now until April you have amazing support energy from the Universe to make impressive forward motion on your dreams.

The Tiger is a brave and fierce creature and this year symbolizes one where we can really go after our goals strengthened by confidence and self-assurance.

The year of the Water Tiger offers us all a chance to connect with our intuition and inner power and we believe in ourselves.

Whatever dream or wish you have, it’s not too big to come true this year!

Take heart, because it is a great sign for positive career moves, and it means big changes in your relationships and personal life as well.

One thing the tiger does is KNOW when to pounce.

Tigers are also patient and intelligent creatures who choose their moment to strike.

Remember this when you feel impatient if things are not coming together despite your best efforts — make calculated moves and keep your faith in the Universe that things will manifest for you when they are correctly aligned with the energy t -good.

The tiger is also a sensitive and intuitive animal with a sixth sense.

We too can learn to cultivate our sixth sense, making sure we are following our soul self and making bold decisions from a place of deep connection and heart-centered energy.

When we make decisions from our heart we can be sure that we are following what is in our highest interest.

Being brave enough to follow your intuition even when it may seem challenging or way out of your comfort zone will always bring you rewards from the Universe.

The Water element in this Year of the Tiger continues to strengthen the energies of intuition and sensitivity.

Water is always about emotions, and this year we can feel more vulnerable to the outside world and the events that take place there.

Make sure you are taking great care of yourself holistically this year — this means mind, body, and spirit.

Don’t choose to focus on just one aspect of your well-being, because they are all related.

When you take care of your mental state, make sure you also take steps to improve your physical health and vice versa.

This will stand you in good stead to deal with any sensitivities or challenges you may feel in response to outside forces.

You may find yourself drawn to spending more time near the water or taking more baths to clear this energy.

Water also symbolizes going with the flow of life.

Remember that the energy of ease and flow is essential to manifesting.

Holding too tightly to a specific outcome is never a good idea.

Be open, fluid, and ready to move in a way that serves you and those around you for the highest good of all.

Here’s how you can embody the Water Tiger Energy of courage, intuition, inner knowing, and fearlessness.

  • Practice making decisions based on the heart.
  • Be brave and say Yes to a new opportunity.
  • Check in with your self worth and make sure you are always supporting yourself and being open to all possibilities in your life.
  • If you’ve always done things a certain way, or you’re too scared to try something different — decide to change it up and try something new.
  • Push past any limiting beliefs you have about your ability to create abundance.
  • Don’t be too rigid about your ideas and goals — be open to the highest outcome and trust the Universe to show it to you.

Enjoy this fierce, bold and exciting energy and take advantage of what it can mean for your life as you manifest your dreams in 2022!
