The Year of the Tiger and Sign of Leo match harmoniously. Every 12 years during the year of the Tiger a special alignment between Eastern and Western Zodiacs occurs, when they are in conjunction. In this case the Tiger matches with Leo - making it an Astrological Royal.
Amazingly cross bred tigers and lions do exist. Tiglons or Ligers are real animals, almost like something out of mythology, and mostly a product of mans tinkering. The Leo Royal has traits of Leo and Tiger wrapped up into one.
Famous Leo-Tigers or Leo Royals include: Peter Jennings, Tony Bennet, and Kenny Rogers Wesley Snipes, Steve Carell, Fidel Castro, Jiang Zemin, Hillary Swank, Patrick Ewing, Roger Clemens, and Princess Anne.
