2012, year of magick, mystery and suspense, upheaval and challenges. In the Chinese horoscope, 2012 is also the Year of the Dragon. This year is considered the year of good luck, as part of the Chinese Dragon meaning is good fortune in the areas of health, wealth and living a long, prosperous life. It is believed that anyone who holds an emblem of this divine mythical animal will be protected and safe. Chinese dragons traditionally symbolize potent and auspicious powers, particularly control over water, rainfall, hurricane, and floods. The dragon is a symbol of great power and strength.
Dragon mythology has been with us for almost as long as we can remember, across almost all cultures. A majestic beast which strikes both fear and a mystical longing within the hearts of it's followers. And followers there are, a gazillion dragon believers are scattered across this earth, waiting for the day when the dragons will rise again (symbolically of course, I'm not totally freaking out here, well .... maybe just a little).
I have always been a dragon lover. I have collected books, posters and all manner of dragon paraphernalia since childhood, still have all my Anne McCaffrey Dragon Rider books sitting on my shelves. There is just something unexplainably mysterious and magickal about this particular beast, it's like they are a reminder of a land we have forgotten. But one that is soon to unfold before us I feel. So it comes as no surprize to me, that such an auspicious year as 2012, would be the Year of the Dragon. A year of creativity and excitement is about to burst upon us, and we are in for one hell of a ride I'm sure. Bring on the dragons!!
