The Year of the Tiger


West January 1, 2022 – December 31, 2022

East February 1, 2022 – January 21, 2023


My restlessness prevails, and self-confidence surges

I manifest opportunity and attract prosperity

I even the playing field as I change the rules

I use technology superbly, leaving some behind

I welcome challenges that turn into lessons and laws

I dislike waste and honor detail productivity and fair play

I’m thirsty for knowledge, experience, and innovation

I delegate responsibilities yet hunger to be part of the streak

My challenges are many, my response impulsive

I waste not, want not, and set high standards

My actions are intent on making a difference



The year of the Tiger will be a fight to protect those less able to defend themselves, but the willingness to support the Tigers efforts will determine if the weak will benefit or fade away. The Tiger’s patience is only good if progress unfolds. The innovative and energetic plan possesses emotion and a passionate display of deity, strength, and courage.

2022 will be dependent on the ability of the planet’s inhabitants to listen, think, and focus on making a positive difference that serves all walks of life. Anything short of that will lead to setbacks and disappointment.

The inability of humanity to work as one will leave the planet’s leaders at odds with one another. Maturity is lacking, and bravado is skyrocketing as fear mounts, and outside influences take center stage.

Sound a little bleak? Well, don’t despair. Where there is a will, there is a way, and the Tiger doesn’t give up easily. Tigers are highly motivated and innovative. They scour for new and exciting ways to bring people together, and if that doesn’t work, they are quite willing to put brute force into play.

2022 is a test to see how evolved we have become as a collective group and if we deserve to be the caretakers of a stunningly beautiful planet. We can choose to protect or slaughter; the outcome is up to us. It’s time to set high standards, get our priorities straight, put a price on what’s truly important, and choose leaders whose aim is to protect, not profit from, the decisions they make. Now is not the time to suppress the people; it’s time to represent and safeguard life.  

The Tiger is objective, honest, and wise and will dig deep to restore law and order and ensure that everyone has a fair chance even during turbulent times. The necessity to protect privacy yet take advantage of the wonders of technology will surface, and the battle will continue until regulations are put in place by the people and for the people. The leader that takes on and reforms the platform that connects us all will set a precedent worldwide. The opportunity to make history is present, but the willingness to do what’s right is questionable. The Tiger’s job is to bring everyone together, not create divisiveness. It’s time for Global leaders to sink or swim and come together for the good of humanity and the planet.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): He who hesitates is lost. Don’t let emotional confusion stand between you and victory. Precision, detail, and prioritizing what’s important to you will determine the outcome. Draw on your imagination, be innovative, and work quickly to put the pieces of your life puzzle in place. Set the scene you want to live out and be diligent in executing what’s important to you. Well planned, steady pace, and ample energy will lead to your highest expectations.

East Meets West





The Year of the Ox


West January 1, 2021 – December 31, 2021

East February 12, 2021 – January 31, 2022


I’m here to fix and stabilize

To help heal and lay the foundation

For unification and one for all

I will sort through the chaos

Fortify and protect our values

And assess and speak the truth

My mission is to reverse the damage

Bring integrity to the forefront

Implement justice, law, and order

And deliver equality and freedom.




The Ox believes in prosperity but only if acquired through hard work, integrity, and fair play. He is methodical, patient, and a team player. He surrounds himself with the best of the best and plays no favoritism to those trying to buy their way into his circle. The Ox sees clearly and stays focused on the result. He believes in a code of ethics and is reliable, devoted, and determined to do what’s right. He takes his position seriously and considers having the trust of others an honor.

The year ahead will be one of change, innovation, and a reversal from the industrial path we have been on for so long into the age of high-tech alternatives that encourage a humanitarian lifestyle. It’s a time for new beginnings as the old way of doing things is banished for a cleaner, versatile choice.

It’s time to be inventive, intervene, get involved,  time to reassess, and reclaim what’s best for the planet and its inhabitants. To stop letting greed take over, and focus on leaving our children and generations to come with a healthy environment in which to live. The youth will offer greater insight and be eager to enforce what’s necessary and put an end to any who try to hold on to old unfriendly ways. The tug of war isn’t over, but the numbers and percentages are changing, and if we are to survive, it’s essential to do our part to appease Mother Nature.

The Ox year will push to improve life and emphasize how our diversity makes us stronger and better when we work together.

Tradition will remain a mainstay, but it will have its place. A shift in politics will encourage a united front and be the objective and necessary for our survival. Mother nature will be watching closely to determine whether the human race is entitled to another chance to be in charge.

Those who will do well during the year of the Ox will be those open to conscience change. Those willing to fight for peace, coupled with the Ox’s strong will to ensure freedom, will help lead to a better future. Be brave, be safe, be well.
