The year of the water Tiger brings a major energy shift to the world. Fortunately, Rat, you are the most adaptable of all the 12 signs. Coming out of the steady, hardworking energy of the metal Ox, this shift into water Tiger energy can feel exhilarating... bordering on dangerous. Rat, you love taking risks, but not unnecessary ones. When you're bold, opportunities will be there for you. But if you're foolhardy, trouble can lay ahead. This year, look before you leap!
If you look at your 12-year cycle as a year on the farm, 2022 is the last year of spring. You're still planting seeds for your future harvest by trying new activities and meeting new people. This is a highly active year, when you’re both exploring new things and weeding out what hasn't been working for the last couple of years. It's time to begin focusing on what works, and eliminate what does not.
Luck and opportunities come for you, Rat, when you have a vision for what you want to achieve. If you combine spiritual activities such as visualization, meditation, feng shui, or creating a vision board, opportunities come more easily. Most importantly, they are easier for you to recognize and grab hold of. You're also luckier this year than usual, which will aid you in taking risks. While the Tiger naps, the Rat can run ahead and gain the prize.
Your challenges in 2022 are centered around your ability to connect with the community, through technology or by getting involved with groups. Look for the holes in your technical knowledge, and see if you can fill in the gaps. Strive to become proficient at communicating on different platforms. Also look at groups you can join, or even consider forming your own group, to find like-minded people who can support you and each other.
The recommended action for you in 2022 is to be the best you can be. Raising your personal standards gives you the best results. Rat, look at many areas of your life, like keeping your promises, showing up on time, and doing your best work. And if you don't feel this is possible in a particular situation, recognize that it's time to leave and move on. Doing things just a little bit better than you have before, delivering slightly ahead of schedule, or showing up a little more prepared will help you this year.
