2022 is the year the Tiger takes centre stage. Back off, Ox! The Tiger is ready to roar!

The year that was 2021 required you to be pro-active and action-oriented. The negative stars such as the Sky Emptiness and Robbery Sha were messages for you to walk the talk. There was plenty of support available for you with two awesome nobleman stars, the Great Sun and Sky Gracious. If you had activated those nobleman stars in 2021, by first becoming a nobleman to others, I would say that you are fully prepared for your coming Grand Duke year.

When used in a positive manner, the energies of the Grand Duke can literally lead to a breakthrough!

You have a pretty long list of stars in your Tiger column this year. Below is one permutation of how things could pan out.



In 2022, it’s time for you to step up and take the lead. Like it or not, you are the Grand Duke of 2022 which puts you in the leadership position. Notice the grey outline for this star? Most traditional masters consider this to be a bad star. That’s because, in the olden days, they don’t like trouble. For them, a good life is one where nothing much ever happens.

But we all know that, in order to achieve, we need to solve problems. That’s what the Grand Duke is all about. So that’s why I’ve decided to classify this as a rather neutral star. If you have the capacity to say, “Bring it on!”, 2022 may be the year you achieve your breakthrough.


When we use the word ‘breakthrough’, naturally it implies that there are obstacles that need to be overcome. This is what the Earth Sha represents – obstacles. The more obstacles you can decimate, the stronger a leader you become.


Your leadership in 2022 will be supported by several very promising stars. One of them, the Duke’s Arrival, can be interpreted as a star that brings you followers. After all, what’s a leader without followers?


Now, if you think you are going to spend 2022 herding a bunch of sheep around, don’t worry! The Heavenly Officer represents the opportunity to connect with someone in authority, most likely a government official, who has the power to help you overcome the obstacles that are represented by the Earth Sha.

For business owners, this could mean meeting someone who has the authority to cut through red tapes for you. If you are a career professional, then this represents the chance to get certified.


Connecting with someone in power will require some effort. That person is not going to suddenly ‘show up’. Yes, some schmoozing is on the cards for 2022. That’s where the Heavenly Chef comes in. It promises good food and good company.


But don’t over-indulge too much, though! The Hidden Corpse which denotes illnesses, is hanging about.


Does 2022 sound like a lot of hard work? The Intelligence Star comes into your quadrant to provide even more support. This star enhances your intellectual capacity. Supported by the Intelligence Star, what was once incomprehensible may suddenly become easy!

But again, please remember that nothing comes without effort. So if you want to activate the Intelligence Star, you need to start exercising more of those little grey cells of yours.


In particular, use that enhanced intellectual capacity to closely examine your communications and legal documents. There’s a Sword Edge hanging about which denotes potential legal problems caused by miscommunication.

The smartest way to avoid the Sword Edge?  Make sure you read through everything carefully or if you can afford it, hire a legal eagle to solve these problems for you.


One of the natural by-product of success is envy! The Back Poking is exactly as it is named – being backstabbed by others. There are only two ways to deal with this – either ignore the Back Poking and keep moving forward and keep achieving, or don’t be a leader, allow yourself to be engulfed by the obstacles, and stay stagnated with those losers.


It can get a bit lonely at the top, you know. Sometimes it may even feel like you are fighting the battle alone. When that happens, please be aware that the Peeling Head which signifies emotional issues or at worst depression, is peeking its head over the horizon.

Overcoming the Peeling Head is more about energy and emotional management. So do make time to take care of your mental and emotional health.


The Tiger Zodiac Sign could potentially fall in your Year, Month, Day, or Hour Pillar. To plot your Bazi chart, please your Bazi Chart with this free resource (registration required) https://bazibz.masteryacademy.com/.

Year Pillar

The Year pillar governs your interaction with the world – your industry, social networks, friends, and personal branding. If the Tiger falls in your Year Pillar, you may find that the people you know are either feeling bogged down by obstacles, or suddenly you are surrounded by courageous leaders. The theme of overcoming obstacles or leadership itself could be your best bet for your personal branding in 2022.

Month Pillar

The Month pillar governs your career and work – your bosses, colleagues, and partners. If the Tiger falls in your Month, you need to start being pro-active about tackling problems. If you are going to have problems, then those issues might as well be growth-related problems instead of contraction-related problems.

Which would you rather have? So many orders that you are struggling to fulfill? Or not enough orders to keep everyone busy?

The same goes for the career professional. The only way to earn more is to enhance our own value. And the only way to enhance our value is to contribute more. How should we contribute? By contributing to growth, of course!  

Day Pillar

For those of you who are already married or in a committed relationship, the Day Pillar governs your relationship with your spouse. In this case, it’s time to sit back, relax and take the back seat for a while. Because your spouse is in the mood to get into the driving seat.

On the other hand, for the singletons, this pillar can represent self-development in terms of character. After all, our character defines our destiny. Agree? The arrival of the Grand Duke in the Day Pillar is a great opportunity to become a better version of yourself. It’s also a good time to resolve any personal issues that may be holding you back and create that breakthrough for yourself.

Hour Pillar

The Hour pillar governs your thoughts, ideas, ideals and investments. If the Tiger falls in your Hour, this would be a great year to invest in knowledge.


Now, remember! The Annual Auxiliary Stars make up only 12% to 15% of your Year. To understand and create strategies for a successful year ahead, hit me up for a personal consult. Let’s co-create your strategy together and make 2022 your best year yet!
