The Tiger got charmed by the Snake,
the Snake was also charmed by the Tiger.
The Tiger wanted to play and be loved,
so did the Snake.
But the Tiger like all Cats is a bit ruff at times,
and with his playful paws scrached the Snake,
past his skin.
And the Snake reacted to the Tiger the way Snakes do,
because that is his nature, and he bit the Tiger
The Tiger was hurted by the Snake,
so the Tiger snaped with her paws the Snake
with all her might,
just as all Tigers do when they feel danger,
because that is their nature.
And there the Tiger and the Snake remained,
not knowing what to do next.
The Snake said to the Tiger that his cave
was not a good place for the Mighty and Holy Tiger.
The Tiger was also in Love with the Snake and tried
to make the Snake play like a Tiger, she wanted to
work it out with the Snake.
But the Snake knew deep inside that
he could never be like the Tiger, or the Tiger like the Snake.
Not until they both have passed the influence of the
seven and the twelve.
The Most High Love, who place us all,
where we need to be corrected the Tiger and
the Snake earthly paths.
But in his kindness the Most High Love
left his seeds inside the Snake and the Tiger.
So one day, when they become pure,
they can come together as One,
in Spiritual Love.
Love is eternal, and that can never be lost.
The Snake was scrached very deeply,
and will never forget the Tiger.
In fact, now that the Tiger is gone
the pain of a lost friend remains deep within
the heart and soul of the Snake.
As the empty space remains in the cave that once the
the Tiger shared with the Snake.
The Snake will never forget,
the joy of feeling the warmth of
In fact the Snake now continually prays that the Angels of
the Heavenly Father and the Earth Mother
protects their special friendship.
Very few creatures had ever gone as deep as the Tiger did,
past his skin and armor.
By the Snake, for the Tiger

Unsu...Sat, September 22, 2007 - 1:46 PMwow?u wrote that??it's so beautiful...I was about to ask about the whole tiger-snake deal.I mean,I'm a Snake and keep liking Tigers,although they're supposed to be the worst companions for us,snakes.They're too cold,for our passion.
Sun, December 16, 2007 - 11:03 AM
Tigers and Snakes can make good lovers, but life do seem to make things hard on them being able to live as a couple for a long period. The Tiger and I loved each other, but we was not compatible, lil stuff would get in the way, the Tiger likes to jump (reacts fast) and the snakes likes to get out of the way (fast).
Unsu...Mon, February 11, 2008 - 8:49 AMmaybe it's just the yin-yang difference.
Tigers seem very "out in the open" about everything to me. Most tigers I know are very sociable, very friendly and seem a touch "aquarian". Maybe that's why the sign is said to be the Eastern equivalent of Aquarius. They like adventure and novelty and lots of people around them.
They seem quite transparent. What u see is what u get, and all that.
To the Snake it appears suspicious that someone so "direct" in day-to-day life can actually be passionate in private, cuz the Snake is a yin sign and is used to internalizing its energy and passion.
I have read though that Snakes are supposed to be "the deepest, most profound" and all that witchy stuff.
But I also remember reading tat they are the most passionate due to that yin mode-fire element conflict.(fire is the snake's fixed element). It's said to show the fact that fire burns under a cool surface.
But speaking for myself, being a Snake with...am not sure yet if it's a Rooster or a Monkey hour Ascendant, I can be very passionate, but also very cool and detached when it comes to more "earthy" interests.
Sun, February 17, 2008 - 2:47 PMThe truth of tiger snake relationships, are that the snake has little in common with the tiger. Snake is not a "warm" emotional creature snake is logical and wise, and sexual. The constant and boring crusades to correct this and that situation are also VERY aggressive and not at all the way of the snake, which is to lay low and strike those who walk by if they DARE to make a problem. In my own life the truth is that the warmth emotionally the tiger shares comes at too high a price to be worthwhile. It is far better to live a life by logic and reason and sexual delight. Of course Tiger would see this a coldly calculating, but not "wrong", so living well will not cause tiger to interfere. Especially if piggies are not usually threatened if the keep their distance and do not criticize snake. If pig criticizes snake snake will retaliate. Thing is snake is justified in seeking revenge if wronged, and they always do. ALWAYS. Keep this in mind other signs. Snake lives coolly because he is truly feared amongst others.
Unsu...Mon, February 18, 2008 - 3:36 PMI have to agree with this statement
the snake has little in common with the tiger
: / Well thats what my life experiences have shown me even though i dont agree with them i have tiger friends accept the differences and just get on with life.
Sat, February 23, 2008 - 6:47 PMMy room mate is a snake and two of my very good friends are a snake. The two very good friends are however ex lovers which shows that arena didn't work out too well. I was always questioning what I was to them (as a tiger) and trying to get to know them deeper, and they wanted to keep it light.
Thu, March 6, 2008 - 10:43 AM> I was always questioning what I was to them (as a tiger)
As a tiger, you was loved (im a snake).
But the ways of the Tiger are not the ways of the Snake.
A Tiger can playfully scrach deep the Snake, just by being a Tiger, the Snake is fast to retailate and fast to move away.
A Snake can be Firends with a Tiger, but to have a Tiger living in the cave of the Snake all the time can prove difficult.
Sat, March 8, 2008 - 7:41 PMI have been living with my snake room mate since October, and we spent a lot of time together before that. But, we have a 2 level apartment, so when we need time away from each other we can escape to our separate world. The more we get to know each other the more similarities we find. Which is even more strange adding that I am a Pisces Tiger and he is a Gemini Snake. Maybe because we are both mutable go with the flow signs makes it easier.
I loved both of my other snakes <3
I think the Tiger Snake combination can be something too passionate when they are too close and it is best to be friends. But, I think they can have real friendships that are not easily matched by other combinations. The differences seem to overlap into something that can help each other grow. But, it probably depends on the sun signs too. Being a Pisces Tiger I am probably more sensitive to the ways in which I might scratch my Snakes.
Tue, March 11, 2008 - 10:35 AM> Being a Pisces Tiger I am probably more sensitive ...
being sensitive to each other needs and space is the key to all relations.
in the end, if it works for you by all means keep the blessings of the friendship
cats can be loving, if they want, just be carefull with your paws, and most likely the snake will come close and cuddle with you.
Sat, May 24, 2008 - 8:16 AM"I think the Tiger Snake combination can be something too passionate when they are too close and it is best to be friends.

I just cant believe i fell in love again with a Tiger, again !!!! : )
But this one seem very different and is a Pisces with a super compatible chart to mine (im Scorp)
Life is Amazing, Truth is Stranger than Fiction
This is the maximum depth. Additional responses will not be threaded.Sat, May 24, 2008 - 11:01 AMwow, this was incredible. im a snake, in the middle of breaking up (maybe) with a tiger. everything you wrote is so true. tiger was so affectionate and warm and even though i felt just as strongly (probably moreso) i just couldn't show it. tiger wanted more commitment, more love, more everything and in the midst of all this excess snake felt afraid & engulfed. the tiger is now moving on (in true tiger fashion) and the snake is left behind nursing deep wounds. snakes dont have the same recovery time as tigers. it hurts very much.
Sun, May 25, 2008 - 9:26 PM>snakes dont have the same recovery time as tigers. it hurts very much.
As a tiger I can say a lot of when we act as if we aren't hurt is just so that people feel like they can't hurt us. Inside we feel the pain just as long.
Mon, May 26, 2008 - 5:27 PMok ok Tigers take it easy. There are possibilities of compatibility between Tiger and Snake. Basically if there is a CAUSE a crusade that both agree is necessary then the tiger and snake can make a difficult if not impossible team to overcome. But BOTH would have to agree to not fight amongst themselves for this goal. Best way to check on compatibility is with this free chart, rather than talk in generalities.....
Mon, May 26, 2008 - 6:33 PM> There are possibilities of compatibility between Tiger and Snake.
We have a very fine western astrology compatibility charts and common work goals are clearly expressed. I had no idea she was born on the year of the Tiger until i was "taken". :
There is a lot of complementary symbolism between what seem to be opposite.
She is a Queen Tiger and im a King Snake, it could not be any other way
we both powerful beings that have found reasons to work as one
> But BOTH would have to agree to not fight amongst themselves for this goal
that should be the goal of every couple
That particular website you posted does not give us much chance and is in total contradiction to a way more detailed western astrology chart that was made and confirmed by other methods of analysis.
Chinese have their ways of thinking, i dont agree with all the say.
Unsu...Fri, April 8, 2011 - 8:54 PMI have purposely let down most all of my guards so not to seem secretive with my tiger. I am openly affectionate and dote on her always. She's the one usually telling me to slow it down. She has a biting tongue though. Not fond of that at all! I don't like saying sorry so I think before I talk. I make sure that what comes out is what I am actually feeling for real and not just in the heat of the moment.. (don't like being disingenuous).
Wed, April 7, 2010 - 2:35 PMI can partially relate to the snake and tiger dynamic.
I guess in Western Zodiac terms, I am month of the snake (Taurus) and a Tiger month would either be an early Pisces or a late Aquariun spanning most of February and very early March.
I don't really have many friends whos birthday is in late February most likely because our chinese month masters are incompatible.
This is probably why I've never been attracted to many Pisces women unless their birthday is after March 4th.
This could also likely explain why fellow Taurens say they clash with Aquariuns but not so much with Leos.
I have a lot of Leo friends but only a few Aquariun friends who have birthdays in late January. Do any fellow month snakes have this?
Sat, April 9, 2011 - 1:36 PMGlenn-
I've currently my 'claws' in a Snakey lady~
Only 'cliche' thing that rings true for me is the Tiger's (me) need for independence; it actually doesn't surprise me she tells you to slow down, as I have had that exchange with meh leddeh XD
Depends on the type of tiger, as I've met a lot of tigers would love and appreciate the sensitive spots of a snake, although I almost always sense the 'dynamic' quality that Tigers would die for before leaving. I tend to think Tigers love a challenge.
I don't think just the year Chinese astrology is all what matters; her and I also share a lot 'sensitive' or 'family' qualities in our westro charts.
I think it'd be worth seeing how the rest of your 'four pillars' balance out.
For instance, mah Snakey has a Fire Tiger for her day ;D
Wed, April 27, 2011 - 6:23 AMI don't like Tigers. They're too concerned with "worldly issues", whereas I think typical Snakes are much more inwardly-focused.
I found it most insulting to read that Tigers don't get Snakes because they are totally "rational", whereas Snakes are ruled by "feelings". That's bull. Snakes are much more emotionally intense, true, but that doesn't mean they are incapable of sound logical reasoning.
The people I know who have Tiger in their chart are just, like I said, much more outwardly-oriented, which means they like to be "of the world", they get involved, are active, which makes them appear more "rational", whereas Snakes may or may not give a damn, depending on their desire to seduce at any given moment.
Snakes can be seductive, but they are rarely "social" creatures in the pure sense of the word, since a lot of their energy is geared towards their inner world of vision and intuition.
However, like someone above pointed out, I guess it is possible for a Snake and a Tiger to get along if they have other compatible parts in their charts.
Sun, August 19, 2012 - 10:49 AMI was the kind of Tiger that never wanted to leave my Snake.
Her eyes captured mine.
Burst me open from deep inside.
Our connection was instantly deeply passionate.
She had a bursting softness of the soul that I only die wishing I could have protected.
For, even though I have a gentle exterior which can play very, very nice; my soul is a like warrior in constant turmoil.
We loved one another, very deeply. She was the best friend I had ever had, though She had to leave me. It was -too- sudden, for me.
I couldn't breath. Somewhere deep, I knew it was right.
But it was hell.
After everything, I feel honestly reformed.
Ripped widely open.
I learned more than I bargained for.
Loved more than I ever have.
Suffered deeper, longer.
It's all a Tiger could ever ask for, and plenty more.
I'm still fighting the last remaining battles within myself.
I want to remain friends.
But I think I'm ready to stop fighting now, anyway.
The inner stronghold has been breached.
The dust is settling.
The only thing that could sustain me now is a passion that persists.
I'm done testing the waters.
To my Incredible Snake; Thank You for your Love.
The Snake can Completely reorient the troubled, suffering Tiger
Sun, August 19, 2012 - 4:07 PMHere was a poem I wrote for her, describing the raw experience, shortly after she broke up with me:
A heart bump jump start outburst
Coagulating coalitions colliding continuously
A sudden beam of light
A turn turns to a tumble
A tumbling becomes sudden free-falling
As the chances and choices, dance
As the candle burns at its own center
Then, just as it began
The burnt trees, rise
Sand fills your eyes
Your frightened heart turns to stone
Molten Lava rushes to the surface
There is a vacuum forming deeply
Demanding your utmost reality
To burn you back to living; empty
Furious fire, rising relentless
Wed, April 3, 2013 - 4:23 AMHi Kevin
So are you STILL with your Snake? I'm a wood Tiger too and I'm falling in love with a Snake. I've had encounters with Snakes before but nothing serious. I REALLY like this girl tho. Also, I'm fire sign and she's water in Western astrology so it's "classically" one of THE worst combinations ever. However, I did out Western chart and we have many favourable planets, it's the best compatibility chart I've seen apart from the main signs. Surely love conquerers all and can even topple astrology??
What does anyone think? Should I go for it?
Sat, June 22, 2013 - 9:36 PMI’m glad to have found this thread, something about the poem and the responses everyone has written resonates with me deeply. I’m looking for some insight into this very tricky situation I have found myself in…
I’m a leo/virgo cusp fire tiger and he’s pisces fire snake. We met just over a year ago at a place we both volunteer at and the attraction was so powerfully magnetic, and I doubt I was the only one feeling it. I hadn’t considered him at first, but one time we were in a group of people, and when I raised my eyes, he was there staring at me with an intensity that shook my entire body and soul. I thought he was peering into the very core of me, vulnerable and scared I think my face must have burst into a bright shade of red. I’m a very intuitive person and felt like I was under his spell from that moment. It still rattles me whether he was just toying with me or whether he had felt as spiritual a connection as I did, but when I met his gaze, he didn’t look away and it even intensified as I stood there visibly squirming in my boots.
Months went by and we got along fine on a professional level (as I keep reading tigers and snakes are great as associates). To this day we often seem on the same page, both practical deep thinkers, when it comes to important matters. Something kept telling me that we are very similar so I learned as much as I could about him before coming to too many conclusions, through a mix of talking to people who know him, and talking to him/watching his energy when we’re near each other.
Bit about him..
Super ambitious, races around from place to place. Very accomplished carpenter, and very concerned with material gain and power. He’s got the big truck, expensive tools, the high life. But I know all of this is just a veneer over this deep chasm of wisdom and spirit. I feel like I see through his high stress lifestyle (he will often sleep 3-4 hours a night and compensate for lack of sleep with energy drinks throughout the day). He’s of course cold-hearted on the surface, doesn’t show a whole lot of emotion, but is very fun loving and a patient teacher. He is currently going through a long drawn out break up with someone who has been struggling in a relationship for many years now. I know it is difficult for him to adapt to change and know that it is not easy for him to let go. But he is so sad and unhappy and I can see it clear as day no matter how much he tries to hide it from everyone. He was homeschooled and very sheltered growing up, so his social skills are next to nil, though he has a natural charisma to him that is very refreshing and calm at the same time. He’s extremely private too. He is also very close to his mother and I’ve been told that he is a bit of a mama’s boy. If she doesn’t like something or someone in his life she makes it known and can be a bit of hellion. Hence why he has had so much conflict with this girl for so long, his mother despises her and thinks she’s wrong for him (as if her opinion should matter!!!! But perhaps she has some wisdom… how biased am I lol)
Bit about me…
I’m also very ambitious and very focused person. I’m a typical tiger with lofty worldly goals, wanting to fight for humanitarian causes. I'm not as materialistic as mr. snake, I could live in the woods without luxury if need be and be perfectly happy. I have a very homely personality and enjoy the thought of having my place in the world and doing good in my local community, rather than being a person who travels and makes waves all over the place. I enjoy my little pond and appreciate the simple life very much. I’m deeply spiritual and emotional and don’t believe the more crass tiger traits suit me. I’m also slightly socially awkward, and find myself retreating from groups of people. I’m not a big partier and prefer alone time at home in a peaceful atmosphere. I also shine in intimate, one on one social situations as opposed to ‘running the social show’ like most tigers. I am eccentric, open minded, and firey. I do attract drama, and have had plenty of it in my love life. My claws do come out when I’m cornered, but as I get older, I find that I am quickly learning that I much prefer thinking things through before taking action. I recognize more than ever that I have a lot to learn and that the things I struggle with most are qualities mr. snake already has.
As the summer and fall went on, an interesting set of stars aligned. First off, him and his parents are highly reclusive people and are very rarely seen or heard of around town. It just so happens however that when I joined the choir here (I’m a long term singer), I learned his father is also a singer and get this – we’ve been carpooling together every Wednesday for a year now. His father and I get along swimmingly (he’s a metal tiger, go figure why we get along), we’re both avid gardeners and share experiences and he has invited me to sing with him, come visit their home and garden, and offered to come help me prune some fruit trees. We’re both reserved people but somehow can talk for ages if left alone. I feel like these life circumstances keep pointing me in mr. snake’s direction and I can’t deny the instant and long lasting feelings I’ve had for him, that seem to grow stronger and more refined everyday. I just plain appreciate him as a person, if only he’d open up a wee bit for me to show him.
My big mistake…?
In an attempt to befriend this snake, I invited him out to do some training for a sport he really likes. At first he accepted the offer, but I am not a subtle person and he saw right through me. He said he would be willing to spend time with me, but that it ‘must never turn into a romance because it may impact our place at the volunteer negatively’. This was venom to me, I don’t take rejection well. I wanted to slash and bite back, but I thought about it and then responded. I said I respect his decision, understand where he’s coming from but that I feel very strongly for him and think it is worth trying. I came right out with it that I thought we had a special connection even if I couldn’t explain it, and that I would wait patiently for him to trust me if that’s what was required. Needless to say I did not get a response back… Tigers don’t like being ignored.
But I had swallowed my pride and have faced him many times at volunteer each week. A couple of times in my weaker moments that biting tongue has come out but overall I think it keeps surprising us both how well we get along and how much we agree on ( on the surface). I am fully aware that we have differing perspectives but knowing these challenges would be good for me to overcome makes me think we both have something to teach each other. He has a firey drive that motivates the hell out of me, and an appreciation for fine quality that is teaching me to be a healthy skeptic when analyzing the value of my environment and life situation. For him, I know there is a potential for me to help him keep in touch with his humanity, and I know for him I represent a challenge to express emotion clearly and thoughtfully. There are beautiful mysteries of life that I am acutely aware of, that I know get lost in the blur of his high paced lifestyle. We have so much to offer each other.
I don’t dare continue to pursue him right now, I know that the last thing a snake wants is to be pursued. I don’t know if I have a chance with him but I do know that if he is right for me, he’ll appreciate the fact that I am genuine, real, and fiercely loyal. I don’t give up when the going gets tough for when things do, I know that it is a time to be thoughtful and learn more lessons.
Theres a gentleness between us I can’t help but love. Just as an example.. at some point we were working together and his pessimistic attitude came out complaining that the other people weren’t as on the ball as he would have liked. I gently reminded him (without criticizing) that these people are giving their efforts through volunteer and that it is not their full time jobs. He’s been part of that volunteer since he was 8 years old and not everyone knows as much as he does. I wasn’t sure what to expect from him, but he actually responded with a softness of ‘you’re right, I am expecting too much’. I never expected to hear something like that from a snake, but as an open minded person, I don’t like to assume too much as it can put the wrong intentions on a situation.
We make each other laugh and there’s just something between us that is so magical. As I said I haven’t made any other moves, and as I promised I am waiting patiently in case he decides to give us a try. I’m certainly not holding my breath and not putting all my eggs in one basket on this one. Theres a big chance he is just so hung up over his past relationship that he won’t be open to explore a new beginning. Right now I am letting him go completely, for if he comes around then great but if not that is ok too I am a tiger and I will survive no matter how deeply this wound hurts. I am not afraid of this kind of hurt, and even if I don’t like being rejected, I know that it is teaching me something important and that I am learning to embrace, love and appreciate the intense emotions this whole experience has given me. Even if all fails and we never even get a chance to be, the love in my heart has been so real and pure, and I will never forget it. I’m not possessive like him, though I’ve had many possessive boyfriends and know how to deal with them. Whenever I read that tigers can’t be emotionally supportive in the way snake needs, I shake my head because for me this is untrue. No matter how independent I am with my life (work, money, emotions, etc), I am very open and generous with love. I will be the sun that warms his smooth snake skin and I have an abundance of light to share with him if he lets me.
I don’t know whether I’m looking for advice or not. I just want to share my experience being a tiger head over heels for a snake. Hope you all enjoy my story and I’m open to any advice or comments, even if some might be painful I am ready to face the reality.
