Happy Chinese New Year of the Metal Tiger – also called the golden tiger, the white tiger
â€œClouds gather in the presence of dragons, winds rise in the wake of Tigersâ€ â€“ I Ching
Dragons (yin â€“feminine ) represent the East. Tigers (yang – masculine) are considered the animal of the West.
Tigers can be aggressive, ambitious, fearless and competitive. They are courageous, capable, forceful and candid, yet sensitive. Tiger ladies are awesome and considered a handful to men. Tigers can be champions of peopleâ€™s rights. The female Tigers can be fashion plates. Well-groomed, perfect hair, stylish clothes, the female Tiger is always one of the most attractive women in the room. The Dragon lady, as always, is the top competition for the Tiger. Unlike the female Dragon, who exudes an earthy natural beauty, the Tiger will display a more sophisticated and pampered appearance. The Tiger knows she is beautiful and revels in it. Many models are born under the Tiger sign. Both the male and female Tigers are charismatic figures and are not afraid to voice their firm views and opinions.
Some famous Tigers are:
Lady Gaga, Jay Leno, The Olsen twins, Megan Fox, Fidel Castro, Charles DeGaulle, Beethoven, Sun Yat-Sen, Ho Chih Minh, Alec Guinness, Idi Amin, Shia LaBeouf, Ashley Hamilton, Will Geer, Demi Moore, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Emily Bronte, Garth Brooks, Germaine Greer, Hugh Hefner, Dr. Phil, Jim Carrey, Jean Kirkpatrick, Jodie Foster, John Steinbeck, Karl Marx, Leonardo DiCaprio, Marilyn Monroe, Martin Short, Mel Brooks, Natalie Wood, Oscar Wilde, Paula Abdul, Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Princess Anne, Queen Elizabeth II, Rosie O’Donnell, Tom Cruise, Rush Limbaugh and Stevie Wonder. NO, Tiger Woods is not a Tiger, heâ€™s really a Rabbit. (to be continued at the upcoming lectures in Milwaukee and Chicago â€“ see events)

At Chinese New Year red envelopes with various amounts of money are given to children. Shopkeepers invite customers in for tea, people give gifts and are particularly generous because they know that what they put out (and maybe more) will come back to them in the new year. This is the time to be generous and giving.
The Feng Shui Red Envelope
Black Sect Tantric Buddhism shui believes each person is affected by:
- His/her destiny
- His/her level of luck
- Feng shui â€“ the location of things
- The good works he/she does for OTHERS and the spiritual work he/she does on SELF
They donâ€™t want to incur any Karma by interfering with another personâ€™s destiny, luck feng shui or karma. This is why a consultant may feel like a bell. A bell rings when rung. This is what I was told early in my career by a very wise mentor. Feng Shui advice isnâ€™t to be volunteered; it is to be answered when asked. Therefore, if you wish the 2010 feng shui update and you are entitled to it as a client, you must e mail your request.
This is why red envelopes are used in BSTB feng shui
- For the transmission of sacred information
- To honor the ancestors who acquired the information
- To make the transmission a business transaction – an energy exchange
Feng Shui consultants who give out BSTB feng shui recommendations exchange red envelopes with clients.
