Happy Chinese New Year – 2012 The Year of the Dragon
Happy New Year!
Today marks the Year of the Dragon – the ‘Water’ Dragon in particular. Sometimes referred to as a ‘new moon day’, today marks the beginning of the first day of the first Chinese (calendar) lunar month. The exact time is 15:40 in China’s time zone.
A quote to predict the characteristics of 2012:
“While the Year of the Rabbit was characterized by calm and tranquility, the Year of the Dragon will be marked by excitement, unpredictability, exhilaration and intensity. The Rabbit imbues people with a sense of cautious optimism, but people 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 all about drama but if you take unnecessary risks, you may find yourself starring in your own personal tragedy”.
