According to the Chinese Five Elements Astrology Calendar, 2010 is the Year of the White (Metal) Tiger. The color White is used to represent Metal in Chinese Astrology and often Gold is used as a related symbol as well.
The metal year should bode well for new financial endeavors and a rise in personal fortune but the White Tiger isn’t all fun and games. Many Chinese believe the White Tiger to be a symbol of the jinx and predict it to be a poor year for those born in the Year of the Tiger. It does look as though it’s going to be an especially fruitful year for those born in the Year of the Horse and Dragon, close friends of the Tiger.
In order to make this year as fruitful as possible you have to be vigilant and keep your temper to a minimum. Realize that this year is going to be full of unpredictability but I’ve always said, what’s wrong with that? Amazing things often come when you are least expecting them.
I am personally taking this opportunity to expand my endeavors and work hard on new projects. With a keen eye and direct focus we should be able to leave the toil of the Year of the Ox (2009) far behind us.
It’s a great time to blow the dust off those knitting needles, replace that dry bottle of glue or post some new items to Etsy. Who knows, maybe that White Tiger will roar some of that good gold luck in your direction.
