The dragon is the most auspicious and powerful of the 12 signs of the zodiac, one associated with high energy and prosperity. It’s also the only mythical creature in the Chinese astrological stable that includes horses, rats and pigs. This year is considered especially auspicious because it is the year of the water dragon, something that happens once every 60 years.
Year of the dragon brings promise of change – Canada, CBC News
The characteristics for someone born in the Year of the Dragon include: magnanimous, stately, vigorous, strong, self-assured, proud, noble, direct, dignified, eccentric, intellectual, fiery, passionate, decisive, pioneering, artistic, generous, and loyal. Flip side: tactless, arrogant, imperious, tyrannical, demanding, intolerant, dogmatic, violent, impetuous, and brash.
I’m not sure how those traits translate to the year but my hope is we see the strength and passion of this sign manifest itself positively and that we have the courage to change for the better.
