The Year of the Golden Dragon (2001/2001)

On 5 February 2000 the placid Year of the Rabbit made way for the volatile Year of the Golden Dragon. Taking place once in every 60-year cycle the Golden Dragon promises to be an exciting and auspicious year.

In ancient China, dragons did not breathe fire. They were wise and caring and guarded the wind, the rain, the rivers, precious metals and germs. Legend says that the farther Dragons travel from their home in China, the more toes they lose. This is why the Chinese Dragon has five toes, the Korean Dragon has four toes and the Japanese Dragon has three. Fortunately, when wandering dragons return home to China, all their missing toes grow back. But, as most dragons would prefer to keep all their toes all the time, few dragons ever wander very far from home.

If you are a Dragon (1916-1928-1940-1952-1964-1976-1988-2000)

If you were born in the Year of the Dragon, you are the life of any party and the star of any group. You posses natural charisma and boundless energy, which attracts people to you. However, your inclination towards exhibitionism can be interpreted as arrogance and puts off many people. Your brave and charitable nature makes you a good fried. You lack patience with people who cannot keep up with stamina, and can be obstinate and too outspoken, even through there is often value in your criticism. You are a born leader and find it difficult when your career progress is in the hands of another person. It is crucial for you to have new challenges and sufficient free reign. Your partners are often spellbound by your impressive presence and charming ways and it is not unusual for you to have many admirers and flit from one partner to the other. Your ideal partner is someone who is not threatened by your star qualities and gives you the space to express yourself – Monkeys and Rats are ideal.

Success will come easily to you during this action packed year. Business should boom and money come your way. Big spending and lavish plans are the rule of the day. A Dragon year should fill you with renewed energy after a recuperative Year of the Rabbit. Throw caution to the wind, roll up your sleeves and you will receive recognition for your efforts. You decisive, frank character coupled with your inherent good fortune means things more often than not turn out the way you hope.
