There was a story from China many years ago . . . The first US President to visit China was Richard M. Nixon in 1972. He asked a great Chinese writer, Guo Moruo, a riddle: "There are 12 items you can give to 1.2 billion Chinese and everyone gets one. Do you know what they are?"

Mr. Guo knew the answer right away, of course: The twelve animals of the Chinese Lunar Zodiac!

The Twelve animals (十二生肖 shí'èr shēngxiào, "twelve birth emblems" or colloquially 十二屬相 shí'èr shǔxiàng, "twelve signs of belonging") representing the twelve Earthly Branches are, in order, the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep (or goat), monkey, rooster, dog, and pig (or boar).

A legend explains the sequence in which the animals were assigned. Supposedly, the twelve animals fought over the precedence of the animals in the cycle of years in the calendar, so the Chinese gods held a contest to determine the order. All the animals lined up on the bank of a river and were given the task of getting to the opposite shore. Their order in the calendar would be set by the order in which the animals managed to reach the other side. Cat wondered how he would get across if he was afraid of water. At the same time, Ox wondered how he would cross with his poor eyesight. Calculating Rat suggested that he and Cat jump onto Ox's back and guide him across. The Ox was steady and hard-working so that he did not notice a commotion on his back. In the meanwhile, Rat sneaked up behind unsuspecting Cat and shoved him into the water. Just as Ox came ashore, Rat jumped off and finished the race first. Lazy Pig came to the far shore in twelfth place. And so Rat got the first year named after him, Ox got the second year, and Pig ended up as the last year in the cycle. Cat finished too late to win any place in the calendar, and so vowed to be the enemy of Rat forevermore.

Cat, lifelong enemy of Rat.

2010 is the year of the metal Tiger. The metal Tiger is mood swinging, vigorous and hard-working, passionate, honest and modest. The Tiger like his animal sign is naturally forgiving and rarely holds grudges for long. The Tiger symbolizes eternal family values, high support and care of friends.

I am the delightful Paradox.
All the world is in my stage.
I set new trails ablaze;
I seek the unattainable,
And try the untried.
I dance to life's music
In gay abandon.
Come with me on my carousel rides
See the myriad colors,
The flickering lights.
All hail me the unparalleled performer.

I am the Tiger.

Tiger Careers Guidance

People born in this year are urgent creatures and always in a hurry to get things done right, they usually choose to operate alone. Tigers are hard-working and dynamic by nature. If you assign a task to a Tiger, the job will be undertaken and accomplished with enthusiasm and efficiency. Optimism, determination and initiative are their strong points. While some projects may succeed because the Tiger has the drive to see them through to the end, the other will be left in a half, because of the tiger's inability to deal well with failure. A Tiger person becomes flustered when colleagues discover that he orshe have misjudged a situation.

In spite of enormous energy and commitment, Tigers must be able to sustain their optimism and drive or they can dissipate their efforts. Other people should hold the purse strings, budget for the unforeseen and direct the Tiger to do what they are best at. The most important ingredient in a partnership with a Tiger is always to be focused on an objective.
