Happy Chinese New Year 2012!
Ever since I was a kid I've been waiting for this year since the last Year of the Dragon because fortunately, the Dragon is my animal sign. At the time I was 12 and realised I'd be going on 24 when it would come around again and was horrified at the prospect of being soooo old by the time it would come around again! Haha. Anyway, I wanted to know more about this Year of the Dragon, apparently it's the water element this time around (hence my fashion illustration of a blue water dragon & a mysterious, dragon-esque asian fashion figure who has the confident, empowering characteristics of the dragon personality). The five Chinese elements are Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water. The Dragon is made of Earth, Water and Wood. The Chinese New Year 2012 will primarily be a water year. This could mean riches and abundance or it could mean natural disaster.
If you were born on
1904 1916 1928 1940 1952 1964 1976 1988 or 2000 you are also the dragon.
It is one of the most revered years of the Chinese New Year calendar and those being born under the sign are regarded as innovative, passionate people who are colourful, confident and fearless. I'd recommend looking up your element as it's a kind of huge chart and frankly it's too much to type for a blog! ;p
