2012- Year of the Water Dragon

Tomorrow is the Chinese New Year, The Year of the Water Dragon. See for a seminar on this special year!
Many people know how powerful this year (2012) is for our new intentions, the year of the dragon is always powerful for intention & manifestation- below, Suzanne Metzger relates how the dragon symbol is assisted by Feng Shui:

Dragons are known to have supernatural powers. They are the ultimate symbol of success and happiness. In China they represent the emperor and power. They move like lightening and are totally unpredictable. Like the Dragon, this year will be filled with drama, energy, and vitality that wasn't present last year. This is a Water year and the Dragon's natural abundance of the Wood element is fed by Water, which will increase the Dragon's natural strength and energy. The Water element will also add spirituality and intuition to the Dragon's power.
Meditation and other practices that unite you with Universal Oneness and strengthen your connection with all beings will soften the strong characteristics of the Dragon and help you to listen to the thoughts and opinions of others before making headstrong decisions.
On the economic level, we can expect improvement. However, it's important not to overspend, both personally and nationally, without careful consideration.
Before making important decisions that involve risk, take a deep breath, slow down and consider all of the possibilities carefully.
Dragons are sky creatures, related to heaven. They are known for bringing the attributes of Heaven to Earth. To access this power, visualize and focus on what you really want. This can help make even seemly unattainable dreams come true with dragon-like speed this year.
Dragons are also concerned with truth. If there's something you're holding back in your relationships, this is the time to open up and share your feelings and concerns rather than having them revealed suddenly without warning.
The Helpful People area of the Bagua symbolizes heaven in Feng Shui. Placing a Dragon in this area can help you to strengthen your relationship to the heavens and connect you more deeply to your spirituality.
To help you prepare for the Water Dragon
from a Feng Shui perspective:
* Clean your house before the 23rd. (Don't forget your stove!)
* Take care of neglected home repairs-or at least schedule them.
* Toss or fix anything broken or that's no longer used.
* Pay off old debts (or be clear and in communication about them).
The above actions will help you to release any
residual energy from last year--especially if
you've experienced loss or bad luck.
(Please note: If you can't complete these actions,
at least try to set them in motion.)
* Place a symbol that represents what you want to create for yourself on your front door. Traditional symbols are a fish for abundance, a dragon for power, and seeds or melons if you wish children. You can also create a personal symbol for whatever you are trying to manifest.
To strengthen this intention, also place a similar symbol in the area of the Bagua related to what you are trying to create. You'll get the best results if you focus on one important goal rather than several at once.
The days before the 23rd are an excellent time to begin or take even one small action toward anything you expect to begin before mid-April such as:
Beginning a new project or scheduling dates for future events.
Taking one or two steps toward handling your taxes.
Starting a new health regimen or fitness plan
Purchasing or selling expensive items
Hiring an employee
This will be a great year for people who are a bit flamboyant, dramatic, love social connection, and are attuned to the Dragon-and anyone who is willing to step into the energy!
