Welcome to the Chinese New Year!

Posted by T.S.Garp

Welcome to the Year of the Dragon. Beginning on January 23, 2012 the Year of the Dragon 15-day celebration starts worldwide. What’s good about this fortunate year you may ask? Well, the mysterious mythical Dragon is regarded as a divine creature in Eastern philosophy known to keep evil spirits away and is a powerful protector. Since as far back as 3000 BC the Dragon has been a powerful symbol for luck, happiness, wealth, defender, ruler of the water, health, and long life. As long as the Dragon is by your side you are considered safe and protected and infused with good luck.

People born in the year of the Dragon (every 12 years) is considered revered and honored.

A karmic sign Dragons are aware of any deed done is return to you. Having good relationships is very important to Dragons. In Chinese astrology any people born in a specific year are thought to take on the character and traits of that particular animal after which the year is named. The Dragon qualities can also relate to the energy that rules this new year such as originality, boldness, non-conformity, passionate and extroverted, full of energy, creativity, and gifted with charm, luck, and extremely ambitious, ushering forth confidents, fearless in accepting challenges, and able to be successful.

We as poets, writers, artist, and spiritualist are beginning a most fortunate year indeed! The Year of the Dragon is full of promise, enthusiasm, patience, growth, determination, and transformation. This is certainly a good year to finish up long standing projects, branching out to new horizons, building new relationships, meeting new people, expanding our portfolios, expanding our minds, nurturing new ideas, following our dreams, and venturing out into the world. So enjoy the good energy and celebrate under the Lantern Festival this January and February, and enjoy this life!
