JUMP TO YOUR ANIMAL SIGN:
Tiger and Rat
The Tiger and Rat form a fascinating but tense alliance. Both of these charmers turn heads wherever they go. At times, both signs will fight for the spotlight, which can cause resentment. The Rat wants to be first in everything, while the Tiger expects to be treated like a superstar. If these two can learn to take turns on the red carpet, they’ll get along fine. If not, they may be better off as friends. One of the reasons the Tiger and Rat are drawn to each other is sheer sexual attraction. The Tiger admires the Rat’s keen mind, while the Rat is entranced by the Tiger’s warm vitality. These two will burn plenty of calories between the sheets. Often, the Tiger will take the lead while the Rat whispers words of encouragement. Both of these signs take a playful approach to lovemaking, and will share lots of laughs on the road to ecstasy. The Tiger should frequently alter techniques to keep the Rat interested, while the Rat would be wise to admire the Tiger’s physique.
In terms of challenges, the Tiger may balk at the Rat’s plotting and scheming, believing their friend is too cynical. Conversely, the Rat can tire of the Tiger’s egotism, thinking this sign expects too many privileges. While the Rat will score more points in a verbal argument, the Tiger will eventually prevail in the fights. That’s because the Tiger will sulk until the Rat makes a heartfelt apology. If there’s anything the Rat can’t stand, it’s the silent treatment. Happily, though, these two are usually having too much fun to argue.
Tiger and Ox
The wild Tiger and the placid Ox make an odd pair. While the Tiger wants to go out and party, the Ox wants to stay in and make soup. The Tiger never hesitates to offer an opinion, while the Ox keeps his or her views private. The easily distracted Tiger prefers to multi-task, but the focused Ox wants to do one thing at a time. Can this couple survive? Yes, if they celebrate each other’s differences. The Tiger has to admit that the Ox makes life a lot simpler. All of the sudden, the checkbook is balanced, the closet is organized, and the refrigerator is stocked. By deferring to the Ox on the home front, the Tiger will have more time to relax. As far as the Ox is concerned, the Tiger adds a welcome dose of spice to their otherwise predictable life. Teaming up with the Tiger could allow the Ox to explore some latent creative talents that would otherwise remain buried.
Sexually, this relationship could experience some trouble. The free-wheeling Tiger doesn’t like to be tied down, whereas the loyal Ox wants a commitment. If these two want their affair to last, the Tiger has to accept that the Ox demands fidelity. In exchange, the Ox should work on expanding their sexual repertoire so that the Tiger won’t get bored. Role-playing can give the Tiger the illusion of having many different partners. Compromise is the name of the game in this union. Normally, the Tiger will play the aggressor, but will be pleasantly surprised if the Ox occasionally takes the initiative.
Tiger and Tiger
When two Tigers get together, prepare for a mutual lovefest. These affectionate people can’t help but be drawn to each other. Each admires the other’s glamour, verve, and humor. Although they’re prone to elbow each other out of the spotlight from time to time, they get along beautifully for the most part. This action-oriented couple won’t waste much time deliberating over their options. They make decisions quickly and easily, and then immediately put plans into action. Life won’t be boring for these two, but it will be occasionally exhausting.
If these two want to make a success of their relationship, they may want to take periodic breaks, just as a means to replenish their respective spiritual reserves. As pals, Tigers are friendly competitors. Each has been blessed with considerable creative talent, which can pose problems. Often, the two will vie for the same job or love interest. When this happens, they’ll growl and claw each other. Once one of the Tigers emerges victorious, the other will head for a corner, lick their wounds, and then bound back to make amends. Tigers don’t hold grudges, which explains why two such ambitious people can maintain a healthy relationship. As lovers, the Tigers may choose to have an open relationship. Neither one of them is particularly faithful when it comes to sex, but they both are loyal in love. Consequently, this couple could decide to live together, but nip out for the occasional fling. If they decide to have a more conventional relationship, they need to work on keeping each other interested through frequent sexual experimentation.
Tiger and Rabbit
The Tiger and Rabbit form an uneasy but rewarding alliance. The Tiger is touched by the Rabbit’s modest attitude, while the Rabbit is dazzled by the Tiger’s star power. It’s a relief for the Tiger to come home to a partner who isn’t seeking the spotlight. Meanwhile, the Rabbit enjoys the dash of glamour that the Tiger injects into their home. Of course, their differences are profound enough to create problems. The Tiger’s independent streak really hurts the Rabbit’s feelings. Conversely, the Rabbit’s martyr complex gets on the Tiger’s nerves. If these two are going to stay together, they’ll have to overlook these shortcomings, or at least deal with them in couple’s therapy.
As friends, the Tiger and Rabbit balance each other’s differences. The Tiger will often come to their pal’s rescue when someone tries to take advantage of the Rabbit. In return, the Rabbit gives the Tiger a reality check when their pride becomes over-inflated. Together, these two can find a middle ground between egotism and selflessness. Sexually, the Tiger needs to tone down their approach in order to seduce the Rabbit. Otherwise, their bold approach could scare this lover away. The Rabbit, on the other hand, needs to overcome their modesty in order to unleash the Tiger’s ardor. The Rabbit needs to experience love both physically and verbally. Therefore, the Tiger should supplement lovemaking with sentimental cards, sexy poetry, and whispered words of adoration. The appreciative Rabbit will respond by keeping fit and wearing enticing clothing that the Tiger enjoys.
Tiger and Dragon
The Tiger and Dragon form a dynamic relationship. At times, this union will be exciting, and at others it will be challenging. That’s perfectly fine as far as these two signs are concerned. Both live in fear of being bored, and that certainly won’t happen in each other’s company. Granted, the Dragon will breathe fire when the Tiger doesn’t automatically defer to their authority. Meanwhile, the Tiger will bristle at the Dragon’s constant need for assurance. Still, these two lovers are willing to overlook each other’s shortcomings for the sake of something greater: sexual excitement!
As lovers, these two can’t be beat. The Tiger loves to seduce the Dragon by assuming different personas in the bedroom. This ability to keep the Dragon guessing makes the Tiger a very attractive partner. In exchange, the Dragon will work to discover the Tiger’s likes and dislikes, developing a lovemaking technique that drives their lover into throes of ecstasy. At times, the Dragon must give the Tiger freedom to go off and explore alone. If the Tiger is able to do this without cheating on the Dragon, these two can sustain a very successful relationship. When it comes to forming a friendship, the Dragon and Tiger have some work to do. The Dragon’s rigidity can turn off the flexible Tiger. Conversely, the Tiger’s solitary ways can really hurt the Dragon’s feelings. If the Dragon can be open to the Tiger’s adventurous suggestions, the Tiger should adopt a more cooperative attitude. Then and only then can these two benefit from each other’s zest for life.
Tiger and Snake
The Tiger and Snake need to tread lightly before embarking on a relationship. Each has very different needs. The Tiger needs to be center stage, while the Snake dislikes the glare of the spotlight. The Snake isn’t impressed by this lover’s star power, which is devastating for the Tiger. Similarly, the Tiger is turned off by the Snake’s cynicism. The Tiger thinks the Snake is sneaky and underhanded, while the Snake believes that the Tiger is tacky and obvious. Unless these two learn to look at each other’s perceived weaknesses as strengths, their union will be contentious. If the Tiger and Snake start out as friends, they have hope for ending as lovers. The Tiger can benefit from the Snake’s intuition with regard to people. Often, the Snake can spot a manipulator long before the Tiger ever detects danger. Conversely, the Tiger can encourage the Snake to adopt a more positive outlook, thereby helping this sign to find opportunities that it would otherwise miss. By drawing on each other’s strengths, these two opposites can develop a profound and abiding respect for one another.
These signs also need to make adjustments as far as sex is concerned. The Tiger’s aggressive approach won’t find much favor with the Snake, who enjoys a slow, sensual technique. If the Tiger learns the art of foreplay, the Snake will respond with the sort of vocal enthusiasm that their partner adores. This couple always enjoys raising the sexual bar, and will work hard to drive each other to higher and higher heights of ecstasy.
Tiger and Horse
Individually, the Tiger and Horse can light up a room. Together, they illuminate the entire Universe. Both are die-hard optimists that believe in the power of faith. If the future looks cloudy, these two work to find the silver lining -- and are usually successful. The Tiger adores the Horse’s irrepressible humor, and the Horse loves to make the Tiger laugh at the most inappropriate times and places. The Horse also admires the Tiger’s unpredictable behavior, and is game for going out for pizza at 4 AM or taking the red-eye to Paris on a Tuesday night. Both of these signs love their freedom, and can afford to take a break from one another without damaging their relationship. In fact, taking separate vacations can actually strengthen this union. The Horse is more conventional than the Tiger, which can cause the occasional argument. Furthermore, the Tiger thinks the Horse is too analytical, whereas the Horse believes the Tiger is irrational. For the most part, however, the two find each other’s differences more charming than irritating.
Sexually, this is an explosive combination that never loses its heat. The Tiger and Horse love coming up with creative positions and stimulating techniques that keep their passion alive. Perpetually young, neither sign tires of making love and can enjoy a healthy sex life well into their golden years. The Tiger needs to be praised and cuddled, which seems silly to the Horse, but if the latter complies, the former will double their efforts to be the best lover on Earth.
Tiger and Goat
This is a challenging union that demands hard work. The Tiger’s strong personality can overwhelm the retiring Goat. At times, the Goat will feel bullied and bossed beyond endurance. Conversely, the Goat’s laid-back attitude confounds the ambitious Tiger, who suspects this sign of being lazy. Without the Tiger’s praise and encouragement, the Goat could neglect their artistic impulses, leading to a very unhappy affair. Hopefully, these two can take the time to recognize each other’s needs before heading in separate directions. For instance, the insecure Goat needs plenty of encouragement to thrive. Fortunately, the Tiger’s boundless enthusiasm can prove very helpful in this regard. Whenever the Goat feels depressed, the Tiger should work to restore their good humor. The Goat can teach the Tiger the fine art of diplomacy, which can prevent the latter from burning their bridges. By combining forces in this way, the duo will gain a renewed appreciation for each other.
As far as making love is concerned, the Tiger and Goat have some work to do. Confident Tigers should never make assumptions about what Goats like or dislike in bed. It’s always better for the Tiger to ask what the Goat wants than to act on instinct. Goats need to be honest about their needs, and forget about seeming nice and normal. The more open the Goat is, the easier it will be for the Tiger to accommodate his or her desires. Fortunately, the Tiger is famous for their open-minded attitude, so the Goat doesn’t have to worry about being judged.
Tiger and Monkey
This is a challenging relationship that will keep both signs on their toes. The warm Tiger and the affectionate Monkey may feel an immediate sexual attraction. Since both parties are very impulsive, they could jump into bed within minutes of meeting. If the two would like to continue their relationship, they need to understand a few things about each other. First and foremost, the Tiger needs to be the leader in this pairing. When the Monkey defers to the Tiger’s authority, the Tiger reward the Monkey with warmth, affection, and gifts. In addition, the Tiger must recognize that the Monkey needs intellectual stimulation from a variety of sources. Consequently, the Tiger should encourage the Monkey’s friendships with all sorts of crazed geniuses.
As friends, the Tiger and Monkey can get along. The Tiger loves the Monkey’s ingenious ideas, while the Monkey adores the Tiger’s tenacity. Yes, they will get on each other’s nerves and want to take frequent breaks from one another. Once they have mixed with other people, though, they’ll remember why they came to like each other in the first place, and will arrange a happy reunion in no time flat. Sexually, these two have very different styles. The Tiger is very physical, while the Monkey is more of a mental lover. If these two are to have a successful sex life, the Tiger will have to invent different scenarios to keep the Monkey interested, while the Monkey will have to focus more on touch, rather than talk.
Tiger and Rooster
This will be a loud, argumentative pair that will turn heads and shatter eardrums. The Tiger and Rooster are famously opinionated. This is great when the two agree, but can be disastrous when they differ. The Rooster is especially sensitive to the Tiger’s offhanded criticisms, and can hold a grudge for days, if not years. Still, the Tiger finds the Rooster’s bravery a real turn-on, while the Rooster thinks the Tiger’s idealism is downright sexy. When it comes to forming a friendship, things go a little smoother for the Tiger and Rooster. The Tiger admires the Rooster’s work ethic, while the Rooster enjoys the Tiger’s humor. Tigers can trust that a Rooster will tell the truth, even when everybody else is fawning over them. Meanwhile, the Rooster appreciates the Tiger’s ability to add levity to even the most serious situations. Whenever life becomes too bleak for the Rooster, this sign should call the Tiger. Pretty soon, a healthy balance will be restored.
With regard to sex, this is a challenging union at first. The Tiger is warm, affectionate, and cuddly, whereas the Rooster is reserved, cautious, and secretive. It may take a long time for the Tiger to ferret out the Rooster’s needs, but if this happens, the results will be well worth it. Roosters really warm up when a lover demonstrates care and concern for their needs. The Tiger can’t handle sexual rejection, so the Rooster should take care to stroke a Tiger’s ego if they’re not in the mood for love.
Tiger and Dog
The Tiger and Dog make a warm, cuddly pair that is downright adorable. The Tiger loves to smooth the Dog’s troubled brow with soothing words of encouragement. Meanwhile, Dogs are eager to rescue Tigers from their more dangerous impulses. These two watch each other’s back, and know they are safe from harm together. Yes, the Tiger will find the Dog’s possessiveness a bit of a bore. That’s all right, since the Dog thinks the Tiger is an egomaniac. The Tiger and Dog are smart enough to know that every relationship is flawed, and are willing to overlook their respective weaknesses for the sake of harmony. As friends, the Tiger and Dog are unmatched. The Dog lets the Tiger lead them down unfamiliar paths, trusting that their pal will always keep them safe. The Tiger appreciates the Dog’s humanitarian instincts, and is often inspired to get involved with charitable causes as a result. Of course, the Dog will have to become accustomed to wait for the perpetually late Tiger. Happily, the Dog is prepared to forgive the Tiger for anything, provided the Tiger keeps defending their interests.
Sexually, the Tiger and Dog get along very well. The self-conscious Dog melts into the Tiger’s warm embrace. Granted, it can be difficult for the flirtatious Tiger to stay true to the tenacious Dog, but the emotional strength of this bond is difficult to destroy. The last thing the Tiger wants to do is break the Dog’s heart, and may stay faithful as a result.
Tiger and Pig
The Tiger and Pig can enjoy a healthy relationship, provided they make allowances for each other’s quirks. The Tiger isn’t afraid to let out a roar when things don’t go their way, whereas the Pig would rather die before creating a scene. Strangely, the Tiger is charmed by the Pig’s modesty, and the Pig secretly admires the Tiger’s bravado. So long as the Tiger doesn’t embarrass the Pig in public, these two will work to accommodate each other. The restless Tiger will have to leave the home front from time to time, but that’s just fine with the Pig, who can stay busy by entertaining their legion of friends. Platonically speaking, these two get along great. The Tiger will propose all sorts of wild ideas, but it will be the Pig who carries them out. The Tiger enjoys buying the Pig all sorts of presents for their home, while the Pig likes to fix delicious meals for their pal. Of course, the Tiger will roll their eyes over the Pig’s gullibility, while the Pig will yawn at the Tiger’s self-aggrandizement. Still, these two get along well for the most part.
As far as sex is concerned, this is a harmonious bond that affords lots of pleasure. Both the Tiger and Pig are extremely sensual. Pigs may blush at the Tiger’s bawdy sensibilities, but are able to laugh off their embarrassment with relative ease. The Tiger adores cuddling the Pig, and may lavish this lover with hugs, kisses, and massages long after the sex is over.
