The five types of Tiger
Those born in the year of the Tiger of the Chinese Horoscope with the influence of water are honest and fair. They enjoy a lot of confidence in themselves but do not use it to intimidate others but to ensure that things are done fairly. Despite the passion that characterizes the Tiger, the water element makes him more calm.
The Tiger under the influence of wood is the typical party companion we all want to have: bright, fun and full of energy. However, there is much more under that façade of an affable person. Actually, they are people who need a lot of support not to feel insecure.
They are pure energy and passion. Their gift becomes their Achilles heel because sometimes they do not take the time to stop and analyze themselves.
People born under the influence of this element in the year of the Tiger enjoy the small pleasures that life offers them. They are excellent life lovers.
