Descendants of the dragon…

Well, it’s Chinese New Year’s Eve today and finally, we get to say goodbye to the Year of the Rabbit and usher in the brand new Year of the Dragon 2012…

Dragon

So are you a descendant of The Dragon (龙的传人)? Or to be more precise, were you born in the Year of the Dragon out of the 12 astrological animals in the Chinese horoscope? Well, I was…and if you are too and you’re wondering what the year ahead would be like for you, perhaps this may interest you:

The Dragon will have a great start to 2012 with an extremely positive attitude and this will work very much towards their favour.

Hmmmm…that certainly sounds very good. I certainly hope it will be as predicted but I don’t think the following will apply to me as I’ve retired and I am no longer teaching…

If you are keen to do well this year and set plans to stone fairly early in the year, then you can get a great deal accomplished in 2012. There will be many opportunities for the Dragon to work their way up in their profession this year and there is the possibility of big advancements in the work place.  There will be doors opening that you thought had closed a long time ago – the most important thing to remember is to spot a good opportunity when it comes and do not overlook the small print in any offer. Dragons seeking work should look forward to new opportunities this year as long as they are not afraid to work hard for it.

Now, I am certainly keeping my fingers crossed though in the hope that money will be coming my way…

There is the possibility of accumulating good finances this year as long as you do not take a lazy approach by sitting back and letting things pass you by. If you commit to something, this may come back as a reward to you in the form of a gift of money or a bonus at work.

…but as I do not have any source of income other than my measly pension, my only hope would be to strike a lottery and enjoy a windfall. In the meantime, I will definitely have to wary of this warning…

Please keep an eye on your finances this year as the Dragon year is very fast-paced and overspending can easily happen.

…and change my spending habits and lifestyle…and cut my cloak according to my cloth.

The following will definitely happen in the coming year, this much I know…

You can look forward to a good and rewarding year with many new friends coming to you in 2012 and there is also a great chance to strengthen existing friendships as it can become easy to neglect loved ones and friends when your social circle grows.

…as a number of my blogger-friends have booked their air tickets to come over in early March and I certainly look forward to that. I do hope that there will be others coming my way as well in the year…and those who were here last year, I hope they will come again and stay a lot longer this time around.

2012 will overall, be a great year but please keep an eye on your diet and be sure to eat plenty of healthy food and exercise as much as you can. Dragons born in 1952 may feel that their talents are not of much use to them but believe me, they are – put all of your skills to use in 2012 and you can be sure of reaping the rewards.

Sigh!!! I guess at my age, I have to be more careful with what I put inside my mouth but then again, I’m sure this applies to everyone- young or old.

Yes, I was born in 1952 – I wonder what talents the prediction is referring to…and what lies in store for me. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see…
