GUNG HAY FAT CHOY! HAPPY NEW YEAR!
2012 is Year of the Dragon and it will arrive on February 4, 2012 - the first day of 2012 Chinese Astrology Year.
According to Chinese Five Element Astrology Calendar, 2012 is the Year of Water Dragon. The color of Water in Five Elements system is related to Black. So, specifically, 2012 is a Black Water Dragon year.
Chinese Astrology is a Balance Theory of Five Elements and each animal can be converted into Five Elements. Dragon contains Earth, Water and Wood. Since Water of 2012 comes with Dragon. it implied Water from the sky makes a dam overflow. Therefore 2012 is a strong Water year.
Dragon is a legendary animal and it is symbol of emperor in China. It can survive on the ground, in the water, and in the sky. Dragons symbolize a potent and benevolent power, the ultimate ruler of all the elements (of earth, air, fire, and water), and a primordial power that acts as a catalyst for change and transformation, wisdom, infinity, and longevity, as well as the movement through space and time. Since the mystical Dragon is coated with mysterious color, the Chinese consider the dragon to be unpredictable and untouchable. When looking a dragon straight on, you can't see its head and tail at the same time. Therefore, it's suggested that we might see something unexpected happening in 2012.
2010 was the Year of the Tiger and was the beginning year of the Wood cycle; 2011 was the year of the Rabbit (the middle year of the Wood cycle). The Dragon of 2012 is the last year of the Wood cycle before transitioning into the Fire Cycle. The energy of Wood is in the East side; the energy of Fire is in the South side. We never know what will happen when turning from East to South. That's another sign of unpredictability in the year of the Dragon. You can have either good luck or bad luck in 2012, and will have a chance to turn it into better or worse luck.
What will your luck be?
