Chinese New Year: The Year of the Black Water Dragon
It’s time to ride the Dragon – the Black Water Dragon of 2012. Although Dragon contains Earth, Water and Wood, it is sourced in Water. Therefore it can work with many elements. Dragon is a legendary animal – in the East it is a symbol of the heavenly power of the emperor of China. In the West, Dragon symbolizes both unconscious reptilian instincts or great wisdom. The Chinese believe that the Dragon is unpredictable, untouchable and mysterious, making 2012 a strong Water year when we would do well to expect the unexpected.
In the West, the Celtic Water Dragon brings what is hidden into the light of day. Destructive feelings can erupt into consciousness, playing on our fears. Or we can understand our feelings and listen to what they’re telling us. This year our deep feelings of compassion and unity can flow into the world as we ride the Dragon along with Kuan Yin, great Chinese Goddess of Compassion.
This goes along with the numerology of 2012, which makes it a 5 year – a year of change and freedom. 5 opens us to a highly progressive and compassionate mindset that wants to make the world a better place. So this year, be open to whatever sparks your interest. Be open to taking a leap.
Until next time,
