2012 is Year of the Dragon and it arrives on February 4, 2012. (Note: Chinese New Year Day is on January 23, 2012. The first day of 2012 Chinese Astrology Year is on February 4, 2012.) According to Chinese Five Element Astrology Calendar, 2012 is the Year of Water Dragon. The color of Water in Five Elements system is related to Black. Therefore 2012 is also called a Black Dragon, Water Dragon or Black Water Dragon year.
Chinese Astrology is a Balance Theory of Five Elements (Metal, Water, Wood, Fire and Earth). Each animal can be converted into Five Elements. Dragon contains Earth, Water and Wood. It’s a source of Water and It is also called the Water Dam in Chinese astrology. Since Water of 2012 comes with Dragon. it implied Water from the sky makes a dam overflow. Therefore 2012 is a strong Water year.
Dragon is a legendary animal and it is symbol of emperor 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 can might see something unexpected happening in 2012. Also a person with too many dragons in the Chinese astrology birth chart will become smarter, sly and unpredictable in the coming year.
2010 was the Year of White Tiger and is the beginning year of the Wood cycle. 2011 was the Year of White Rabbit and is the middle year of the Wood cycle. The Dragon of 2012 is the last year of the Wood cycle. Dragon is the transition year to the Fire Cycle. The energy of Wood is in the East side. The energy of Fire is in the South side. We never know what will happen when turning from East to South. That’s another sign of unpredictable Dragon year. You can have either good luck or bad luck in 2012, and will have a chance to turn it into better or worse luck.
Before predicting your luck in 2012, you have to know what Type of Element you are and what your Lucky Element is from your astrology birth chart. The Lucky Element is the major factor to determine people’s fortune. 2012 is the Year of Black Water Dragon, which contains Earth, Water and Wood. If your Lucky Element is Earth, Water or Wood, then 2012 will bring you some degree of luck. Since 2012 is Water Dragon, people whose lucky element is Water will benefit more in 2012. Fire is the opposite element of Water. People whose lucky element is Fire will have more impact in 2012.
For more details and an accurate prediction, the first step to knowing your fortune is know what animals are in your birth chart. You can find that information from the Chinese Astrology Lucky Element page using your birthday and birth time.

However, Male Water of 2012 and Day Master Fire have a fighting relationship. Also, Dragon and the Dog in the Day Column have another fighting relationship.

Chicken and Dragon have a Branch Attraction Relationship into Metal. If Chicken is in your birth chart, then your people relationship will be good. If Metal is also your lucky element, then you will do well in social activities. Chicken is also the Romantic Star of Dragon. If you are looking for love, then you will have a very good opportunity to find someone you like. If you already have a lover, then we will have a closer relationship.

If both Dragon and Rabbit are in the birth chart, then they will gather and enforce the strength of Wood. Because Water of 2012 is the supporting element of Wood, people with lucky element Wood can receive the benefit from Water Dragon. If Tiger also appears in the birth chart or current 10-Year Major Cycle, then the three of them form the strongest Wood combination. That means this will be a wonderful year for people whose luck element is Wood. The best month of the year will be the Tiger month and Rabbit month.
If both Rat and Monkey are in the birth chart, then they will join with Dragon to form a very powerful Water combination. That means Water lucky element people will have a big surprise year. If Water represents your Money Star, then you will see your wealth grow in 2012. But if Water is the unlucky element, then watch your money, otherwise the debt will be waiting for you.
Dragon is also called Water Dam in the Chinese astrology. If only Rat appears in the birth chart of current 10-year Major Cycle without Monkey, then Rat and Dragon are still can build a strong Water. People whose Lucky Element is Water can expect good people relationships and good luck in 2012, especially in the month of Monkey, which is in August.
Dog and Dragon have a Fighting Relationship, which implies poor people relationship. If the Male Fire Dog or Male Earth Dog in the Year Column or Day Column of the birth chart, then this is the case of a Double Stem-Branch Fighting Relationship. This is a bad sign of instability, accident, separation, dispute, hostility and poor health. These type of people should use a conservative attitude and approach to avoid any dispute, quarrel and challenges in 2012.
Tiger is the Travel Star to Dragon. People whose birth chart contains a Tiger may wish for outdoor activities, either for business trips or for a long distant vacation. It also implies something will keep turning your mind around.
When Dragon meets Dragon, they have a Self-Hurting Relationship, which can disturb people’s emotions, judgment, and decision. People might become suspicious and stubborn. When things go wrong, then they will blame themselves. Traditionally, Double Dragons (one dragon in the Year Column or Day Column of the birth chart, one in year 2012) is a bad sign for their yearly luck. This is because the Chinese dragon is untouchable and unpredictable. A person with too many dragons is unpredictable too and becomes somewhat sly. If the forecast is unpredictable, then it won’t be a good year.
However, according to Chinese Five Element astrology, Double Dragons should form a strong Earth. Earth implies steadiness or stillness. Earth people minds are kind of inflexible. They always have the basic instinct to keep their promise. If Earth is their Lucky Element, then Earth people should do well in 2012.
