2012.01.22 Няма коментари

At midnight on January 23, 2012, Chinese people around the world will welcome the new year, ushering in the Year of the Dragon.
Chinese New Year is the biggest and longest festival of the Chinese community. Chinese people take weeks of holidays so as to prepare for the festival and go on holidays. There are several beautiful rituals which are followed during this whole period. There goes a very beautiful legend behind Chinese New Year celebrations. In the ancient times, Buddha asked all the animals to meet him on the Chinese New Year.Twelve animals came and Buddha named a year after each one and he announced that the people who’d be born in the respective months would have similar personality traits like that animal.

As 2012 is the year of dragon, so people born in 2012 would be brave, innovative, passionate, leaders.
Fireworks are a must, decoration with poems on a red paper, giving children money in red envelopes is a wonderful tradition which they follow to bring prosperity and luck.“
The Dragon Years, the fifth zodiac in the Chinese cycle, follows the Year of the Rabbit (in a cycle of 12 years). The Year of the Dragon will start on Jan. 23 and end on Feb. 9, 2013. Experts believe 2012 is the Year of the Black Dragon (or the Water Dragon or the Black Water Dragon) will be one of transformation and improvement.
Chinese Astrology is centered on the Balance Theory of Five Elements. Each animal (sign of the zodiac) can be converted into the Five Elements – Metal, Water, Wood, Fire and Earth.
The Dragon contains earth, water and wood. More importantly, since the Dragon is a source of Water (and is known as the Water Dam in Chinese astrology), and Water is the primary Element of 2012, this Dragon Year is expected to be a strong Water year.
Metal – Chinese astrologers believe this year could be lucky for people with a strong Metal sign in their birth charts, as long as a strong Fire element is around
Water – As mentioned above, this will be a strong Water year and will prove to a lucky one for people whose Water element score is low.
Blue/black is the lucky color.
People associated with travel, writing and communication will see great improvement this year.
Wood – This could be a profitable year, as far as money and investments are concerned, for people with good Wood scores in their birth charts. However, they should also be careful with words and deeds, as an unsavory reputation is indicated for the year. There is also the chance of health-related problems.
Green could be a lucky color.
Your creativity will boost you career.
Fire – Fire fears Water! Therefore, Water is not a good sign (for career and health) for people with low Fire scores in their birth charts. A significant degree of patience, attention to personal safety and conservative actions are advisable.
Female Fire signs can expect good social relationships; romantic, an engagement or even marriage could be on the cards.
Red is your color for this year.
Any job requiring your intellectual ability will prove to be good.
Earth – Water represents money or wealth to Earth. Therefore, the major event in 2012 will be money-related. If you have strong Earth signs in your birth chart, then the opportunity to make money is around you, all year long. Your income, investment and wealth will increase quickly
Yellow is the lucky color.
