January 23rd begins the Year of the Water Dragon on the calendar of the Chinese zodiac. On this calendar, each year is split into two parts, reckoned by one of ten heavenly stems (the five elements in their aspects as yin or yang) and one of twelve earthly branches (the animals of the Chinese zodiac). This year, we are in the year of the Yang Water Dragon.
The Dragon is the fifth animal in the Chinese zodiac, and the only mythical creature in the lineup. Those born under the sign of the Dragon are expected to be confident, headstrong, charismatic, and powerful, with an extra dose of luck. These qualities are double-edged: a Dragon can accomplish most anything he sets his mind to, but he is also quite capable of pushing down those who get in his way.
The Year of the Dragon is generally held to be an economically lucky year, as the Dragon brings prosperity wherever he goes. Since this is the year of the Water dragon, though, those who already have a lot of Water in their charts may need to exercise a little extra caution.
