2012 will be the year of the dragon. Having been born a dragon, I'm supposed to be passionate, innovative, generous, self-assured, successful, etc... yeah, well... maybe I can claim a few of those great characteristics : ) If you ask some who know me, they would laugh and say, "That figures!" And I don't think they would mean it as a compliment ( : o) Here's a jump-start on the celebration...
dragon is a legendary creature of which some interpretation or depiction appears in almost every culture worldwide. The physical description and supposed abilities of the creature vary immensely according to the different cultures in which it appears. However, the unifying feature of almost all interpretations is it being a serpentine or otherwise reptilian monster (or at least possessing a serpentine/reptilian part or trait), and often possessing magical or spiritual qualities.
Phoenix - A legendarily lucky bird, the phoenix is the king of birds. It is said that the phoenix was formed with the essence extracted out of the five elements (metal, wood, water, fire, and earth). Its head look like the sky; the eyes, the sun; the back, the moon; the wings, the wind; the claws, the earth; and the tail, the latitude. It is a divine bird.
One of the most revered mythical animals of the Chinese is the dragon. It is believed to be once a real animal, but has become extinct. Some say the dragon was merely how the Chinese saw the alligators that came when flood season was upon them. That is why they are often called bearers of rain. The dragon, however, has grown to represent many things. It is sometimes called the Guardian of the East and symbolizes Spring, courage, and Imperial Sovereignty. From the mouth of a dragon can come royal edicts, prophecies, and proclamations of Heaven, fire, and clouds that bring rain. The eastern dragon, which is capable of great deeds if one treated him reverently, is very different from the western dragon, which is evil and kidnaps princesses.
JADE, or "yu" in Chinese is also known as the "Stone of Heaven". Comes in many fine nuances of green, but also in shades of white, black, grey, orange, yellow and violet tones, Jade is a desired stone prized for thousands of year in China for its protective powers and healing qualities. It is also said to stimulate creativity and mental agility, and enhance one's health.
