Happy New Year – Again?

By Brenda Hall, 

Yes, again!  China is celebrating the Year Of The Dragon starting today, and we all wish them health, success and good fortune this year.  Some of you may be wondering what the big deal is all about, so here are a few reasons why this Year Of The Dragon is so special for us, as well.

 First, I expect 2012 to be a year where we Americans continue to climb higher up the economic slope and regain more of what has been lost since 2008.  Dragons can help do that.  They are a symbol of good fortune and a sign of power in the Zodiac, and like our friends in China – we need to see Dragons as ‘good guys’ who are fearless and rise to tough challenges.

Dragons make good leaders because they tend to be successful; they question ‘the rules’.    Most Dragons also trust their instincts and open their minds to creative ways of solving problems.  Dragons also have a ‘soft’ side as well – they like to attract others to build relationships.  If YOU have been fortunate enough to be born a Dragon…. congratulations!  Happy New Year!  And may your year be healthy, prosperous and fun!  I, for one, look forward to 2012 to be an even better year than 2011….and I know it will be with all of you Dragons out there.
