The influence of the Earth Element allows the Earth Tiger to be the most grounded of all the Tiger types. Although the Tiger is normally dominated by impulse, the Earth Tiger is more reasonable and prudent in their affairs. It is also through their practical nature and sensibility that the Earth Tiger becomes the most nurturing of all the Tigers. The Earth Tiger puts great value in how they are perceived and subsequently is less likely to take risks. The Earth Tiger is defined by their inner strength and can meet challenges with patience and perseverance.
Slightly more calculated than other Tigers, the Earth Tiger will do well in a career that rewards practical thinking. In this sense, the Earth Tiger would do well in finance, law enforcement or the military. If they develop an interest in entertainment, Earth Tigers have been very successful in the acting world. This can be seen in the budding careers of Earth Tigers Jaden Smith and Amandla Stenberg.
The patience of the Earth Tiger is a great strength, but it can become a weakness if they allow their consideration to turn into indecisiveness. In this sense, the Earth Tiger would benefit from avoiding their tendency to over think situations. By moving at a comfortable, slow pace, the Earth Tiger can find great success.
The organs of the Earth Tiger are the spleen, stomach and pancreas. To protect these important organs, the Earth Tiger must avoid their indulging nature and avoid unhealthy, rich foods. It is also important for the Earth Tiger to avoid the stress that can come from fixating on the details of life.
