Dragon is a symbol of Transformation - a very good year for Pi to chose to enter Earth!
Dragon year exhilaration, unpredictability, excitement and intensity.
Dragon as a mystical creature is a composite of qualities of 4 animals: tiger (claws = the electric male power), fish (tail = the ability to navigate through difficulties), snake (body = the magnetic female power), eagle (wings = the ability to be have higher perspective and freedom). In other words, Dragon cannot be trapped or limited in any way because it is an embodiment of male and female powers, in harmony.
The personality of the Dragon is ambitious and internally significant. In other words, to make your 2012 year happy, you will have to rise to the this Dragon's challenge and become ambitious (DARE TO DREAM!!!!!) and be unique (CLAIM YOUR RIGHT TO BE YOU!!!)
Dragon is unafraid of challenges and is willing to take risks to "make it happen" - match the Dragon!!! This is the year to be passionate about life - YOUR LIFE! It is all about you - didn't you know that? :)
Dragon year is usually a year of change and transformation. So "reality recognition" as a form of change is definitely fitting.
Main physical stresses of Dragon years - well, stresses! Dragon years are transformative, i.e. CHANGE is happening - which can be unnerving - so TRUST that this is for your own benefit and please, do not try to CONTROL the Dragon! You will have less headaches if you just RIDE him!
Now, to the elements… Dragons are usually Fire, right? True, also Metal in Chinese calculations.
But this 2012 Dragon is unique - it is a Water Dragon.
That's right, it is a typical Fire of the Dragon BALANCED by the Water element! Now, is Pi smart or what?! You've got to love this!
Water Dragons are able to see things from other's point of view (i.e. instead of competition you get COOPERATION - read our Energy Pulse Energy Calendar 2012!) and they do not have to "always be right" (fire trait), instead using a "well-researched" and harmonious "trust" approach to life.
Dragons are all about LONGEVITY, PROSPERITY and cutting out bad karma of the past. But it comes with a price - unless you are an individual matching the Dragon's intent, you cannot really benefit. I.e., you have to dare to show up to life and actually live it, you have to be brave, passionate and true to your very Soul to claim the Dragon's bounty.
I wish you the best ride of your life on the back of this beautiful 2012 Dragon!
