Chinese New Year horoscopes: Year of the Tiger 2010

Year of the Tiger

The Chinese believe the tiger personality is dramatic, colorful, and extreme - and this year will be no different. I expect a great deal of excitement in the air, volatility in the financial markets, and saber rattling between opposing nations. The Tiger is also a humanitarian, so I hope for progress for the welfare of the common man.

Here's your horoscope for 2010!

Be careful with your over-trusting nature in 2010. A Tiger year is full of surprises, false starts and inflated ideas, and it's easy for the Boar to get swept up in the excitement with high hopes. It's fine to have a positive outlook, but keep your feet and expectations rooted to the earth. It's a GREAT year for romance!
