Your element is wood if you were born in 1974 and your Chinese zodiac animal is the tiger. Tigers made of wood symbolise bravery, passion, and power. They have vibrant, unpredictable, and rebellious personalities. They command everyone's respect and amazement. Although they may seem like they want to fight always, in reality they are very sensitive and should not be used as a punching bag or played with too much because they could break easily.
Tigers are known for being extremely loyal to their friends and family. They believe that everyone deserves second chances so they usually give people another chance before deciding what role they will play with that person. Despite having powerful claws and teeth, they don't use them to threaten others instead they use their brains and beauty to get what they want.
Tiger parents try hard to make sure their children grow up to be strong and courageous. This means they will often beat, discipline, and abuse their children without remorse. Because tigers are natural leaders they will usually win any battle that they start with someone else even if they are beaten later on in the fight because they know that the other person wanted it too.
Tigers are known for being beautiful but dangerous. Women find strength and courage in men who show them compassion but also hold them accountable when needed. This type of relationship requires trust which can only be gained through time.
The twelve animals symbolize the Chinese zodiac signs (or sheng xiao, which translates to "birth + resemblance"); they are the Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat (or Sheep), Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig, in that order. Your astrological sign is merely one component of the puzzle. The other parts include your sun sign (which we will get to later) and your birth date.
The system works on the theory that each animal symbolizes a different trait that helps to determine one's nature. These traits are called "animal signs" and can be used to predict one's behavior and preferences. For example, the Rat is said to be crafty and nervous, while the Tiger is aggressive and proud.
There are two ways to interpret the zodiac signs: as symbols or as indicators. As symbols, they reflect an innate quality about a person that determines their behavior. For example, the Tiger is an aggressive sign that requires courage to act upon its desires. This means that someone who is born under this sign will likely use their physical strength to get what they want. On the other hand, if we view the zodiac signs as indicators, we can see that they help reveal information about a person's character.
The monkey is the Chinese zodiac emblem for Leo, and lions are born between July 23rd and August 22nd in the Western zodiac. These two signs have a lot in common and are all about showmanship. The monkey, like the lion, is always up for a game. They enjoy challenges and taking risks even if they don't necessarily know what will happen afterwards. Both monkeys and lions are known for their bravery and strength but also because they can be a bit reckless.
Leo people are said to be charismatic and attractive, with a vivid imagination and a desire to make an impact on others. They are often seen as leaders who know what they want and how to get it. Like lions, they're not afraid to go after what they want. However, unlike lions that are known for being loyal to a fault, Leo people are thought to be somewhat unreliable because of this sign's ability to switch alliances easily. They like having many friends so they don't want to be seen as hostile towards others. Despite this, when Leo does choose to stick with someone it usually lasts a long time.
Leos are known for being strong-willed and opinionated, but at the same time they can be quite naive. They believe in fair play and will never try to cheat or take advantage of anyone else. This makes them good partners and friends but also difficult opponents since they're rarely beaten until they give up.
