Chuc mung nam moi! Happy Chinese New Year friends! It’s the Year of the Water Dragon, an exceptionally rare period, occurring only once every 60 years (Dragon comes every 12 years, water every 4 = Water Dragon is 60 year mark). The Elder Vietnamese are telling me that it’s considering the luckiest time to be born, so much so that news stories of Industrious Asians are even seeking surrogate mothers to birth a child during this time! For all my friends expecting little ones this year, here’s the Chinese Horoscope:
Dragons signify powerful energy, growth & creativity; this is ESPECIALLY true
in 2012. The Year of the Water Dragon which begins January 23, 2012, and ends on February 9, 2013, brings many possibilities for good fortune. For the Chinese, dragons are the divine mythical creatures that bring with them intense power, ultimate abundance, and good fortune.
Water has a calming effect on the Dragon’s fearless temperament. Water allows the Dragon to re-direct its enthusiasm, and makes him more perceptive of others. These Dragons are better equipped to take a step back to re-evaluate a situation because they understand the art of patience and do not desire the spotlight like other Dragons. Therefore, they make smart decisions and are able to see eye-to-eye with other people. However, their actions can go wrong if they do not research or if they do not finish one project before starting another.
To the Chinese, the dragon is born in the most desirable year and is the mightiest of the signs. The Oriental dragon is regarded as a divine beast, the reverse of the monster that Westerners felt necessary to find and slay. Free spirits of the Chinese zodiac, people born in the Year of the Dragon are extroverts who have a deep love for nature and are innovative, passionate, enterprising, brave, self-assured, colorful, and flamboyant. Gifted and irrepressible, they are fearless of any challenges that may come their way, able to see clear the paths and take a radical approach to any harsh conditions.
When it comes to nobility, the Dragon ranks high. Known as a born leader, the Dragon is the perfect child and adult. Extremely gifted with luck and strength, this person is usually well respected. Known as being a perfectionist and idealist, the person under the Dragon sign has a difficult time with aging. Because of this, you see the Dragon remaining youthful throughout life.
