There are TONS of threads spouting "the end of the world" nonsense ad nauseum, so I thought I'd introduce a more positive spin on the year 2012. This lunar year is the Year of the Dragon. Every year is associated with one of five elements, and this year it happens to be water. So 2012 is the Year of the Water Dragon. According to some, water is the best element because it represents life, purity, flexibility and strength, calmness and power, intelligence and wisdom. It's a lucky year, combining the most powerful Zodiac with the most powerful element. It happens only once every 60 years. Anyone born in this year supposedly ends up successful in life. I know most of you don't buy into all that astrology stuff (and personally, neither do I), but there is some truth to this claim, particularly among Chinese/Taiwanese/Vietnamese people. It's because Asian children born in the Year of the Dragon are told all their lives by Asian friends and relatives that they're "dragon children" destined for success, so they're subconsciously programmed from childhood to believe it. So the source of their success comes not so much from the power of the Zodiac as it is from the power of the mind. It's a self-fulfilling prophecy. So if you're in a position to make babies ( ), by all means get busy! To those of you who celebrate the Lunar New Year (and even to those of you who don't) I hope you have a good one! Sources A Powerful Revelation Any child born between 23 January, 2012 and 9 February, 2013 will be a Dragonborn. As long as you conceive a child by the end of April or the beginning of May, your child will be born by the deadline. FUS RO DAH!
