If we were to take a step into the animal world we would see there is a thin line between the weakest and most vulnerable creatures and predators. The tiger is a feared, fierce and menacing animal that is an intrepid hunter; when he opens his mouth showing his sharp teeth he instills fear in all of his victims. The tigers fighting spirit is innate and tireless but it also has considerable psychological equilibrium, allowing it to discern the perfect moment to attack and pounce on its prey. When the tiger is not out hunting it enjoys its quiet time and sleeps in the shade.
The tiger symbolizes a dualism between creative and destructive energy. It represents strength, courage, success and justice as well as aggression and death. In Chinese folklore there are five mystical tigers that preserve the order of the world:
The southern red tiger is associated with summer and the element of fire.
The black tiger north is linked to winter and the element of water.
The Blue Tiger east is associated with spring and nature.
The west white tiger is the winter and governs metals.
Finally, the yellow tiger that lives on Earth, governs all the other tigers and governs all the energies of the planet.
It is said that if you you dream of tigers it means that a new power or a new passion has awakened within us. The tiger also expresses rougher side of the soul. Indians, for example, had identified the tiger as Tamas, an unbridled force of instinct, in China the passage of the tiger determines a new moon, a new opportunity.Tiger representations were also used to keep away evil spirits.
In Asia, the tiger is also associated with the power of the King, similar to when you think of the lion in Africa. In Korea, not surprisingly, the tiger is the king of animals. In Hinduism, the destroyer god Shiva wears a tiger skin.
