The dragon roars around the world

Around the world Chinese communities celebrated the end of the lunar calendar and the beginning of a New Year. The Year of the Dragon began Monday January 23, 2012. The year of the dragon is said to be a very prosperous year for the people of China. It is said that anyone born in this year will be healthy, wealthy, and wise.

The color of Water in Five Elements system is related to Black. Therefore we can say 2012 is a Black Dragon, Water Dragon or Black Water Dragon year. Chinese Astrology is a Balance Theory of Five Elements. Each animal can be converted into Five Elements. Dragon contains Earth, Water and Wood. It's a source of Water and It is also called the Water Dam in Chinese astrology.

Since water of 2012 comes with Dragon. it implied Water from the sky makes a dam overflow. Therefore 2012 is a strong Water year.

Dragon is a legendary animal and it is symbol of emperor in China. Since the Dragon is coated with mysterious color, Chinese consider that the dragon is unpredictable, untouchable and people cannot see its head and tail at the same time. 

We may see something unexpected happening in 2012, but hopefully not what the the film 2012 predicted. It is also said that a person with too many dragons in the Chinese astrology birth chart will become smarter, sly and unpredictable in the coming year.

Be in China to celebrate the Dragon with the Chinese...
