Happy Chinese New Year: The Year of Water Dragon

Wishing All Happy Chinese New Year.

May you find health and happiness in the year to come.


2012 is Year of the Dragon. Dragon is a legendary animal. It is the symbol of power and superior control. Since the Ming Dynasty, it has been used as the symbol for the emperors in China.

Since the Dragon is coated with mysterious color, Chinese consider that the dragon is unpredictable, untouchable and people cannot see its head and tail at the same time. Therefore, we might see something unexpected happening in 2012.

Thus thread the year more carefully. The Year of the Dragon is also the year of natural disaster.

According to Chinese Five Element Astrology Calendar, 2012 is the Year of Water Dragon. The astrological reading is that it is a critical year for humanity due to changes taking place in the people's minds.

The Pakatan Rakyat supporters may like to read it as the year UMNO or Barisan Nasional is ousted out of power. That is if they strongly believe their propaganda has permanently captured the imagination of voters, particularly the middle undecided.

What if it had backfired instead and rationality had reigned in over the excessive politicking of spins, slanders and lies?

We believe the pendulum reached it's maximum and is due to swing back. One reknown opposition inclined political player privately predicted that opposition will bomb out. They could only retain less than 80 seats, lose Selangor and Kedah, and Kelantan caught in 50:50 situation.

But we are not ready to be optimistic till the administration be more serious on committed and perception of corruption, power abuse, and inefficiencies in Government and GLCs. And, UMNO and BN has to mature by ridding itself from the politics of warlords, factionalism, petty bickering, anti-intellectualism and suppression of new leadership talents.

Some prediction say that the changes taking place in the people's mind could be more spiritual than political. There are reading that we are about to pass to a new spiritual era.

Will it mean rise in moral consciousness or reverting back to religion?

Some are predicting that the change and rise in consciousness will give rise to greater appreciation for innovation and ideas in businesses. The economic crisis is not about to be over yet but it signifies the passing of a new era. With so many cases of market failures, latest being Eurozone, business should go back to basics.

In the new era of spirituality, people may begin to realize to not rely too much on money. Having money is fine but there are more important things to consider (for example environment, our spirits, and humanity).

The year could see many new technology trends. More people will become comfortable using technology in their lifestyles. Technology will be used to enable people to become more spiritual.

One does need to believe such predictions. It is good to know to understand the psyche of the significant number of the population in order to heed for eventualities.

To excercise care is not a bad advice.
