New Year 2012: Year Of The Dragon

For the last 2 years we have commenced our first newsletter with a reference to the Chinese Zodiac animal for the upcoming year, mainly as a bit of fun, but also to see if there is any learning we can take from the characteristics of each of the animals in the Chinese Zodiac.

According to Chinese Five Element Astrology Calendar, 2012 is the Year of the Water Dragon.

The colour of Water in the Five Elements system is related to Black. Therefore we can say 2012 is a Black Dragon, Water Dragon or Black Water Dragon year.

Chinese Astrology is a Balance Theory of Five Elements. Each animal can be converted into Five Elements. Dragon contains Earth, Water and Wood. It’s a source of Water and it is also called the Water Dam in Chinese astrology. 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 creature and is the symbol of the emperor in China. Since the Dragon is coated with mysterious colour, Chinese consider that the dragon is unpredictable, untouchable and people cannot see its head and tail at the same time. Therefore, we might see something unexpected happening in 2012. Also a person with too many dragons in the Chinese astrology birth chart is said to become smarter and unpredictable in the coming year.

Before predicting your luck in 2012, you have to know what Type of Element you are and what your Lucky Element is from your astrology birth chart. Your luck element is the major factor to determine people’s fortune. 2012 is the Year of the Black Water Dragon, which contains Earth, Water and Wood. If your Lucky Element is Earth, Water or Wood, then 2012 is said to bring you some degree of luck. Since 2012 is Water Dragon, people whose lucky element is Water will benefit more in 2012. Fire is the opposite element of Water. People whose lucky element is Fire will have more impact in 2012.

Whilst the reference to the astrology is a bit of fun, we want to use it as a means of introducing a number of underlying messages that might help your relationship with us and overall business and our role in that.

As such this February we are focusing on a number of issues relating to mitigating risk, business and personal planning as well as some tidbits we have picked up over the break.

We hope you enjoy the upcoming posts and that 2012 is a great and happy year for you.

We enjoy working with all of our clients and hope you take the time to read the newsletter. If you need our assistance in any of the areas discussed within the newsletter, please contact us so we can be of support to you.
