Year of the Water Dragon of the rain
Yang Dragons are protectors of the East. They are associated with spring, green/blue, the elements wood/water. They control the rivers, rains and storms. Naga (sanskrit for serpent-like creatures) protected Siddharta, Guatama (the Buddha) from wind and rain for seven days.
Visionary, outspoken Dragons (Chen) are blessed with vitality, health and enthusiasm. Self-sufficient with a strong power of will, Dragon is a particularly lucky sign promising health, wealth and happiness. Dragons are witty, restless, freedom-loving and secretly enjoy shocking others with their eccentric behavior. Dragons are incredibly perceptive, imaginative, intuitive and drawn to the inexplicable. Dragons are original, admired and loved but they often prefer to remain at a distance. They are rational yet their actions are most often driven by instinct. Dragons are flamboyant, unpredictable, assertive and crave the limelight.
Dragons are especially compatible with Monkeys, Rats and Snakes.
Famous Dragons: Salvador Dali, Charles Darwin, Joan of Arc, Abraham Lincoln, Oscar Wilde
Water as an element is receptive, passive and reflective and flows around obstacles.
Water (in frozen and liquid form) covers 75 % of the Earth’s surface.
The human body is 70 % water, blood 80%‚ brain 75%‚ liver 96% water.
Water conducts electricity which makes it the medium of bio-electricity in all living things. The Water Dragon known as the electric eel can produce up to 1,000 volts with a current up to one ampere.

Drink plenty of water – especially in Water Dragon years in order to maintain electrolyte balance within the body.
Water Dragons are shape-shifters, revered and worshipped in the east- they are protective, humane and benevolent benefactors. Water turns Dragons protection towards matters of the heart and emotions of fellow human beings. Water Dragons are naturally drawn to metaphysics and intuitive arts. Water Dragons advocate justice, are humanitarians and are more willing to share than other Dragons. Water Dragons are optimistic and see things objectively. They know the ring of truth and are fluent communicators, open to new ideas and experiences.
