Year of the Tiger - Find out what celebrities are born under this Chinese zodiac animal

Updated: Mar 29

The Tiger is one of the 12 animals that creates the Chinese Zodiac. The 12 zodiac animals are, in order: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig. Each year is related to an animal sign according to a 12-year cycle.


Some of the most relevant years of the Tiger include 2022, 2010, 1998, 1986, 1974, 1962, 1950, and 1938. If you were born during any of the years above, your zodiac sign is probably the Tiger. However, Chinese New Year is celebrated at the end of January or early February, so if you were born between these months you could also be an Ox.

The people born in the year of the Tiger are always optimistic and enthusiastic by nature and possess endless energy to fuel their enthusiasm. They can never be knocked down by any setback, as they have an indomitable spirit and will come out stronger than ever.
