Year of the Dragon Chinese New YearExiting the Rabbit Hole,
Entering the Year of the Dragon
By Nate Novgrod L.Ac.

January 23rd, 2012 is the beginning of the Chinese New Year. This will ring in the year of the Water Dragon. The water phase will help cool the dragon’s natural fire.

The dragon is the fifth sign in the Chinese zodiac and the only one which is a mythical figure. Dragons are historically said to have the head of an ox, the muzzle of a donkey, the eyes of a shrimp, the horns of a deer, the body of a serpent covered in fish scales, and the feet of a phoenix. They are often portrayed grasping a pearl which is a symbol of its super-natural powers.

Dragons for the Chinese are a representation of the emperor, masculinity, and power. Dragons are associated with natural phenomenon such as thunder, rain, lightning, and whirlwinds. All of these share characteristics with the dragon; immensely powerful and very unpredictable.

After the Year of the Rabbit, a generally calm year, the Year of the Dragon will be full of energy and spirit. It should be a year of good fortune and happiness. The Chinese consider the Year of the Dragon to be a good year for marriage, having children, and starting new business ventures. Money should be a little easier to come by during this year. Though it’s best to use caution as both successes and failures will be magnified this year. There may be more surprises as well as violent natural disasters this year.

Those born in the Year of the Dragon should have an easier time making decisions as well as seeing things from the point of view of others. Dragons are generally innovative, enterprising, self-assured, braves, passionate, conceited, quick-tempered, and creative. Dragons are somewhat of free spirits. Everything they do, they do on a grand scale.

Some famous Dragons are: Calista Flockhart, Colin Farrell, Courtney Cox, Courtney Love, Julia Ormond, Reese Witherspoon, Sandra Bullock, and Wynonna Judd.

Nate Novgrod is a Licensed Acupuncturist and Tai Chi instructor here in Waynesville. For more information check out or call (828) 283-0268.
