2012: Year of the Dragon

2012 is the Year of the Dragon.  What does that mean? 

The Dragon is the mightiest of the signs, and occupies the 5th position in the Chinese Zodiac. Dragons symbolize character traits such as dominance and ambition. Dragons prefer to live by their own rules and, if left on their own, are usually successful. They’re driven, unafraid of challenges, and willing to take risks. They’re passionate in all they do and they do things in a big way, though often this passion and enthusiasm can leave Dragons feeling exhausted and unfulfilled.

While Dragons frequently help others, they are unlikely to ask for help.  Others are attracted to Dragons with their colorful personalities, but deep down, Dragons prefer solitude and tend to be most successful when working alone. This desire for solitude can come across as arrogance, but this is not really the case. 

Dragons are known for their tempers. 

Dragons, risk-takers that they are,  can suffer from stress and tension headaches.

In the job world, Dragons prefer leading to being led.  They are best suited to jobs in which they can express their creativity.

Dragons will give into love, but they won’t give up their independence. Because they have quick tempers, their partners need to be tough-skinned. Dragons enjoy others who are intriguing, and when they find the right partners, they’ll usually commit to that person for life.

Dragons and the 5 elements

Metal Dragons – Years 1940 and 2000

Metal strengthens this already strong sign. Metal Dragons are more determined and will fight for what they believe in.

Water Dragons – Years 1952 and 2012

Water calms the Dragon’s fire. Water Dragons are able to see things from other points of view.

Wood Dragons – 1904 and 1964

Wood Dragons also are willing to entertain the opinions of others. Their artistic side is strong.

Fire Dragons – 1916 and 1976

A Fire Dragon’s emotions can flare instantly. Fire Dragons put themselves on pedestals and, as such, sometimes make wrong decisions.

Earth Dragons – Years 1928 and 1988

More rooted in the ground, Earth Dragons make better decisions because they act more rationally.  While they are more supportive of others, they prefer being admired by others.
