      All Tiger Zodiac needs to be balance out regardless of their western sign due to them being a YANG. YANG needs Yin and vice versa. No western sign can balance out the yin yang. Please remember that Chinese Zodiac has been around longer then western horoscope. You can't have a 24 hour day if you don't have a 12 hour night and a 12 hour day. The yin yang helps maintain harmony, peace, and long life. 2 yang or 2 yin do not make a right. 1 yang and 1 yin = harmony, balance, and longevity. That's the yin yang for you.

      Alright; done some research recently.

      Virgo / Tigers are all about balance. Virgo is nearly the opposite of Tiger but despite some inner turmoil they can turn out wonderful if they get the balance right. Tigers are impulsive and emotional; Virgos are cool and analytical. The result is a person who can be both empathic and objective and is, thus, potentially the wisest of Tigers. They make good debaters and advisors as they like to see both sides and get the full picture.

      Besides that, Virgo / Tigers simply like to be right. Tigers like to be first and here this manifests in a tendency towards Know-It-All-ism (yes, I know that's not even a word- I'm a Virgo / Tiger, after all). They can be a bit meddlesome too as they like to be known as the problem solvers of the family. Though they usually DO have good advice and valuable insight, this tendency can rub people up the wrong way. Especially since, like all Tigers, they value their independence and thus don't tolerate any such meddling in their OWN lives.

      But they are generally good people. They like making others happy and seeing them reach their full potential (hence the meddling). They like achiever, especially warm-hearted achievers, and aspire to be such themselves, though they might be more comfortable as the power behind the throne (so long as the person on the throne isn't too much of a dependent). Like all Tigers they like the spotlight, but they are perhaps the most privacy and security-conscious of all Tigers and, thus, prefer to be the centre of attention when they are good and ready. They don't mind pulling the occasional prank or making fun of themselves, either. In addition, they know their own limits. Mostly.

      Virgo / Tigers can also be snobs, which comes from Virgo. They like comfort and status and culture for themselves and their loved ones, and are the most tradition-bound of Tigers. But they still have a rebellious side and don't like to feel trapped by such things, either; it's a matter of preference and taste, and not so much ideology. They are by nature charitable and have strong social instincts, sometimes even Socialist instincts, despite these inclinations. They like travel and adventure, but they like to have a comfortable nest to return to as well. They are sociable and familial, but also sort-of loners, preoccupied with the never-ending quest of sorting their own life and dreams out.

      So, basically, an insufferable genius with a heart of gold.
