  • Career: They should be very cautious in workplace this year. In addition to avoiding making mistakes, they are advised to work hard. In this way and with the help of some kind people, it’s possible for them to take advantage of the challenges to achieve a progress. Businessmen are advised to operate their business steadily in this bumpy year.
  • Wealth: People born in the year of the Tiger are highly advised to spend money thriftily this year, otherwise their salary may fail in covering their daily bills, even though it may be raised. Do not rely on investment for extra income, because it sees no signal of success. Businessmen, especially those engaged in woods, gardening, or clothing fields will probably earn more profits than others.
  • Relationships: It is not easy for singles to start dating in 2022. They need to be more tolerant towards the interested opposite sex. The married ones should care more about their partner, especially their emotion to avoid gaps between them, or even worse, break-up.
  • Education: People who go to school tend to have a good academic outlook because they are more motivated, manage their time well and work harder. They are able to improve their abilities in their studies.

Tiger's Fortune in 2023
Tiger horoscope in 2023 is average as a whole. They may not be the most excellent staff in their company and the prediction shows little chance of promotion and salary raise. The singles may not have time and energy to become unavailable. Those in love should spend more time with their lover in case of breakup. Their daily expenditure is very likely to increase a lot; in the case, make a plan to make the income and cost meet. Their health fortune is at a low level, so pay more attention to any discomforts.
Tiger Luck in 2023
  • Career: The 2023 prediction shows low chance of promotion. But their performance would not be bad. So stay calm and spare some time to learn more professional knowledge and skills, which will help them do a great job in the future. Their relationship with workmates and customers would be harmonious and they intend to develop more distinguished customers.
  • Wealth: This year, their salary may not be enough to cover their increasing expense. Maybe they could find a part-time job to fill in the gap. The businessmen born in the year of the Tiger would be satisfied about their profits, just in case of losses caused by the competitors. 
  • Relationships: Due to their negative attitude, the singles would not like to dress up to attract a potential girlfriend/ boyfriend, or attend a blind date, hence very likely stay available. For those married, their marriage would be stable because the two sides could understand and compromise to each other.
  • Education: Their attitude towards study is positive and they would meet someone who can help them improve the efficiency. Focus in class. Their luck in examinations is good, too. Even though, go over the papers carefully before submitting them, so as to get high scores.
  • Health: The possibility of getting sick is high this year. But do not be afraid and go to hospital on time if feel not OK. Early treatment means early recovery and less sufferings. Also, they’d better do something to strengthen their body.

1963 is the year of the Rabbit... But Chinese New Year in 1963 begins on January 24th. Your birthday is before then, so you were born in the Year of the Tiger.

Well, I am taking a step back and see what I am really doing. Men approached me all the time and I meet people via online dating. I had few relationships in past and yet I am single..I am looking a life long relationship and someone kind, humble, honest and loving partner. Is this too much to ask for? I feel I am not meeting people in my wavelength... meeting wrong people all the time..

Please advise!

Start traveling to open your circle of possibilities in the relationship department. Do not close your world to only dating within your ethnic background. Apps will not work. Most people on those are about sex only. First meeting a person is visual so make sure you are taking care of your physical appearance as well as your mental and emotional status.
