Being born in the Chinese astrological Year of the Tiger is considered most fortunate, as the personality is believed to acquire this creature's natural luck. Ancient astrologists also regarded the Tiger as a symbol of power and vitality. So, these influential traits, when coupled with the Western sign of Virgo usually equal a strong, lucky and light-in-spirit personality. A Virgo Tiger is usually lively, cheerful and very expressive, with a wonderful built-in sense of humor. Their buoyant persona from the Tiger's influence appears to liven up the usual Virgo straightforwardness. This creates fun-loving temperaments and lovely people who are not pessimistic, but compassionate, and have their hearts in the right places.
A Virgo Tiger is usually a confident, lighthearted and friendly person who is full of optimism and motivation. There is not much in life that grinds them down if they are generally happy and feeling loved. These are tolerant and patient people who, while taking a carefree outlook, still know how to be sensible when it really matters. The Virgo Tiger personality is best placed in jobs where their humorous temperament and generous patience will be an asset. People who work alongside these particular Virgos often grow to love and rely on their good-humored natures and high-spiritedness in the workplace.
These Virgos prefer to do things one at a time and are quite organized. Many seem to achieve a good balance between work and home life. The Virgo Tiger likes order, and knowing what they have to do and when. They will then book their free time around these responsibilities, and expect to be able to stick to them. So, these individuals often have a diary full of future plans, and are never stuck for something to be doing when they are not working. They may have an easy-going approach to life, but they can be inflexible and stubborn if plans they have made have to be changed.
In relationships, the Virgo Tiger is warm, loving, spirit-lifting, romantic, charming and spontaneous. These are attentive partners who are usually only jealous-natured if they are given cause to be. They tend to be open and honest with their soulmates and try to work together as much as possible toward common goals. A Virgo Tiger may be rather fussy about how the household is run and likes to keep house for family only. They value their privacy and like to reserve socializing for mostly outside the home, and just for special occasions.
Virgo Tigers are seemingly full of energy, but they do have a weakness of not being very efficient at pacing themselves. Although they are methodical personalities, these Virgos can soon feel drained and are people who really need to get enough sleep. Even if the Virgo Tiger has one hour less rest than usual, they will be snappy and have difficulty concentrating. They may be grumpy and awkward and just not their usual chirpy selves all day. As they get older and wiser, most will learn to regulate themselves to avoid this weak spot in their personalities.
