Chinese Compatibility Rabbit and Tiger It is quite rare to find a Tiger and Rabbit sign romantically or sexually involved, as both signs are significantly different and opposing in personalities in many areas of life within Chinese astrology altogether.

The Tiger also tends to rush into one relationship after the other, without really ever taking time to themselves. They can give you insight into the many things that go into your personal makeup, and give you the tools to navigate and negotiate life's inevitable cycles. Altogether a smooth sailing and fun-loving relationship. When they feel disrespected, a Tiger can be truly mean and even seek revenge.

The Chinese Zodiac The Chinese zodiac is based on the lunar calendar year, and can begin any time between mid-January to mid-February.
