Chinese Year Year – The Year Of The Dragon

Every year Chinese culture celebrates Chinese New Year cycled every 12 years based on the selected 12 animals : Dragon, Rat, Pig/Boar, Rooster, Rabbit, Snake, Monkey, Dog, Tiger, Ox, Ram/Goat and Horse.

Chinese New Year celebration lasts until the 15th day, and it is the longest holiday in China.

Many rituals and festivals during these 15 days, and the 10th day is the most important and biggest event to celebrate, although the Chinese younger generations see The Chinese New Year different with their ancestor.

But the spirit on gathering families in this particular moment is still alive until today.

This year, Chinese New Year began on January 23rd entering Year of The Dragon considered as the best year among others.

Dragon is the chief of all the 11 animals, and every year besides the animal there are also 5 elements that go with the animal, which are : Fire, Water, Metal, Wood and Earth.

2012 is the Year of The Water Dragon. The best year for the Chinese is Metal Dragon or Golden Dragon. Many parents plan to have children on the Year of The Golden Dragon , as they believe that prosperity would come along with the child.

If you like astrology, you can predict your future in the current Chinese Year, but you need to know in what Chinese year you were born and which elements.

Usually in general if you were born in the year of fire element, this year you will be calmer as water can control power of fire.

These 5 elements are generating cycle with many interpretation : Wood can break Earth,

Earth can block the flowing of water, water can control fire, fire melt metal, metal can chop wood.

As for the year, there are some compatible and not compatible animals. This is sometimes becomes an issue for a married couple and business partner:

Rooster is very compatible with Ox and Snake, Rat is very compatible with Dragon and Monkey, Tiger is very compatible with Horse and Dog etc.

For the Year of The Dragon, many unpredictable things will happen. Dragon is an animal representing The Emperor, it is huge with not firm color, and we cannot see the head and the tail at the same time, so it represents as unpredictable, but they believe that this year is better than last year (The Year of The Rabbit). Many Chinese businesspeople postpone some deals until this year comes hoping that starting in The Year of The Dragon would bring much luck and prosperity.
