Chinese astrology works in 12-year cycles. According to legend, Lord Buddha challenged all the animals of the zodiac to race across the river. The cunning rat got there first. The sluggish pig took his time and arrived last. The goat, which is Zoe's sign, came in 8th. I washed up 10th, as a rooster. The dragon is the fifth year in the cycle.
Babies born between now and February 9, 2013 will be dragons: the free spirits of the Zodiac, wildly colorful, flamboyant, extroverted, showy, confident, fearless, and probably very successful. Dragons are gregarious and generous and make a lot of friends, but are secretly solitary at heart.
Water has a calming effect on the Dragon's fearless temperament. Water allows the Dragon to re-direct its enthusiasm, and makes him more perceptive of others. These Dragons are better equipped to take a step back to re-evaluate a situation because they understand the art of patience and do not desire the spotlight like other Dragons. Therefore, they make smart decisions and are able to see eye-to-eye with other people. However, their actions can go wrong if they do not research or if they do not finish one project before starting another.
