Dragons are difficult to ignore, especially during their year! In the Year of the Water Dragon - January 23, 2012 to February 9, 2013 - you are even stronger, more dramatic, and courageous. Even in challenging times, you will set and pursue ambitious goals.
Trust your intuition. Water will help you be extra diplomatic and compassionate when dealing with people. You can easily take the lead in your community. Those facing difficulties will benefit from your ideas and confidence.
Pick your battles, especially in October when things may be particularly stressful. The flowing nature of Water asks you to accept that some things are simply not to be.
