2012: The Year of the Dragon

Chinese New Year (also called the Lunar New Year) occurs in the early months of our calendar year, typically January or February and this year falls on January 23rd. The Dragon is the only mythical creature in the Chinese Zodiac. The dragon is associated with power and wisdom, seen as an almighty king. It is made up of different parts of animals such as a tiger, fish, snake and eagle. The year of the Dragon offers opportunity for those who are willing to adapt to change and creatively approach new possibilities. This year will be marked by excitement, unpredictability, exhilaration and intensity. We respond to the spirit of the Dragon with energy, vitality and unbridled enthusiasm, often throwing all caution to the wind – which can be an unwise move: The Dragon is very dramatic, if you take unnecessary risks, you may find yourself entrenched in “drama”. May the power of the Dragon call on your clarity, power and wisdom so you can skillfully, creatively and flexibly move through the unpredictable intensity and excitement of this Dragon year!
