THE YEAR OF THE DRAGON
My mom was born in a Water Dragon year, which is what 2012 is also, so this is supposed to be a very lucky year for her. But actually, it turns out that this year could be a lucky one for most everybody. It's a year when a lot of things in your life could change, and it's a good time for new beginnings. You could start a business, make some smart investments, and earn a bunch of money. Just be sure to save some of that money and not spend it all, like a Dragon person might do. Oh, and if you want to get married, this year would be an excellent time to do that.
This is a little bit confusing, but here is something that is even more confusing. The Chinese New Year, which is today, is not really the beginning of the Year of the Dragon. That's because the Year of the Dragon begins on the Start of Spring, which will be on February 4, 2012. The Start of Spring is the first day of the Tiger month, which is the first month of the year in the Chinese Fortune-Telling Calendar system. So, are you confused yet? I am. Which is why I decided to just go ahead and talk about the Year of the Dragon anyway, even if it doesn't officially start until February 4.
People who were born in Water Dragon years are calmer than regular Dragon-year people because water calms fire. They can see things from someone else's point of view, and they don't always think all their own opinions are the right ones. It seems like this would mean that Mom would see more stuff from my point of view and let me have more things that I ask her for, but it doesn't really work that way, so this part about Water Dragons may not be very true.
So anyway, I want to wish everybody a lot of good luck in the Year of the Dragon. It could be a very good year for you, but don't do any of those bad Dragon things such as spending your money as fast as you make it or losing your temper a lot!
