Always active and ready to deal with anything, Tigers are smart, charming and popular, people loving them for not being obsessed with money and power.

When influenced by Fire, these natives become more energetic and focused to take action. Fire Tigers would never hesitate to take charge in any situation, so others are positively influenced by them.

As a matter of fact, this influence of theirs and the fact that Tigers have many high ideals makes them highly appreciated by other people.

While usually optimistic, Fire Tigers are also very independent and therefore, restless or moody. Since this allows them to have a lot of excitement in their life, they can also get into a lot of trouble.

Fire influences the Tiger’s personality to have all the traits accentuated. People in this sign and element are very proud of their achievements, dreams and ideas.

When trying to make a name for themselves, they often give an impression of eccentricity because they’re very intelligent and have strong convictions that only a few can oppose.

Those who are trying to contradict them will most likely lose and be very disappointed in themselves. It would be better to not tell these Tigers what to do because they won’t listen or accept being told that some of their dreams may not become a reality.

This means they’re also a little bit arrogant and proud, but as the forces of nature that they also are, others will simply love them for acting fast and for always standing behind what they’ve decided.

While intelligent, agile and hard-working, Fire Tigers need to be less impulsive and to not hurt others in their way. If not doing so, they risk to offend many of their loved ones and to lose important friendships.

All the time happy and feeling free, Fire Tigers have a problem controlling their enthusiasm. However, they tend to never show their true feelings or how capable they actually are.

Their passion and eagerness will have them making mistakes all the time, meaning they should learn how to analyze situations before making a decision. As far as money goes, they seem to have a lot of good luck and to come out of bad situations without making too many efforts.

Love & Relationships

Creative and passionate, Fire Tigers can’t ever bore their lovers. These natives are mannered, reliable and expressive, but they tend to also be very domineering.

Career aspects of the 1986 Fire Tiger

Tigers need to all the time be challenged, so it’s possible they’ll change jobs many times throughout their life. However, this won’t be a problem as they’re highly intelligent and can rapidly master a new skill.
