Happy Chinese New Year! Celebrated worldwide, the lunar new year also known as the Asian new year is a time for food, family and bringing in good luck for the year ahead.
And this year is the year of the dragon and is purported to be a period of good fortune, according to the Chinese zodiac.
From January 23, 2012 - Feb. 9, 2013, the water dragon will reign supreme, bringing with it optimism and hope to end a tumultuous 2011. The dragon is the luckiest of the signs, and also the only mythical creature in the Chinese zodiac.
This year is a year to think big and take chances but diplomatically, according to Tarot.com. Be kind and sensitive to others, make your loved one feel loved, and take a chance on new business adventures. But don't forget to save where you can as well.
And if you were born in 1904, 1916, 1928, 1940, 1976, 1988 or 2000, you are officially a fearless dragon. When they're not thinking of big ideas or reinventing their looks, dragons have a passionate and caring side and usually bring out their wallets for charities.
Dragons are reputedly imaginative, able to see new paths and take a radical approach. They have a curious spirit and try to succeed at their endeavours in one stroke, according to writer Doug Sloan.
Some famous Year of the Dragon celebrities include Rhianna, Willow Smith, Susan B. Anthony, Florence Nightingale, Sigmund Freud, Shirley Temple, Salvador Dali, Mae West, John Lennon, Raquel Welch, Bruce Lee, Keanu Reeves, Orlando Bloom, Sandra Bullock, Al Pacino, Calista Flockhart, Courteney Cox, Freddie Prinze Jr., Gregory Peck, James Garner, John Leguizamo, Liam Neeson, Martin Sheen, Mary-Louise Parker, Nicolas Cage, Matt Dillon, Reese Witherspoon and Russell Crowe.
