What 2010, The Year Of The Metal Tiger, May Bring

January 1, 2010

Chinese New Year is due in several weeks’ time and so many are asking what 2010 may bring in the year of the Metal Tiger.

Quite several of my friends are metal tigers and believe me they’re thoroughly excited.

But they are also advised not to through caution to the wind and think everything will be hankydory

Here’s why, according to one of my on-line sources:


The Metal element gives the Tiger its sharpness in action and speed of thought. Tigers born in the Metal year like to stand out in a crowd.

With an inspiring assertiveness and competitive demeanor, they determine their goals and then do anything necessary to achieve them.

This good-looking character sometimes suffers from mood swings and temper tantrums.

The Tiger can be known to jump to conclusions or to act too quickly without weighing the options or understanding the consequences.

This is a flaw Tigers must learn to curb.

Still another on line resource says:

The Year of the Tiger 2010  is a Yang Metal year, and it’s a year of much activity, drama, changefulness, crisis, and unpredictability.

Tiger years are associated with political and social instability or upheaval.

Metal is not a very compatible element for Tiger (Tiger prefers Wood and Fire), and thus 2010 is expected to be challenging and turbulent overall.

Nevertheless, the Tiger does prefer Yang, and 2010 is a Yang year, which strengthens matters somewhat. It is strong for technological advances and innovations.

The overall theme is one of change and unpredictability, and so all signs will benefit from remaining flexible and adaptable to changeful conditions in 2010.

While caution and moderation were advised in 2009, the Year of the Ox, flexibility and the ability to deal with change are essential qualities in 2010.

The Tiger’s independent, innovative, assertive, leading, and honorable traits are qualities that will be especially favored in the year of the Tiger.

While your Midfielder isn’t a metal tiger, I do hope that for my friend and our society as a whole, 2010 will indeed be auspicious.

Our elections are coming and we do need to get out of the political, and economic rut that many feel we are in.

But whether we anchor our hopeful attitude in the Chinese horoscope (given how most Filipinos have whole or partial Chinese roots) or more solidly in our Christian faith, we do hold in our own hands, in our personal determination, , the capacity to improve our personal lives.

Most importantly in the Year Of The Metal Tiger let’s become the change we want our country to undergo.

Advance Kung Hei Fa Choi y’all!!!
