What will the Year of the Dragon bring for you?

Canada Post honours the Year of the Dragon—a time of innovation, risk and achievement—the fifth sign of the Chinese zodiac. The dragon in the PERMANENT™, domestic-rate stamp in this series is fully embossed. Gold foil is used prominently in the dragon’s scales. Swirls, a graphic element from ancient Chinese designs, are placed at the bottom of the domestic-rate stamp to represent the water element. The Chinese characters in the top right corner spell out “dragon.”

The Year of the Dragon begins Monday, Jan. 23 and is to be marked by excitement, unpredictability, exhilaration and intensity.
Chinese New Year is a time to welcome longevity, wealth and prosperity and to eliminate any negative chi from the past.
Traditional festivities include setting off firecrackers, spending time with the family, exchanging gifts and, of course, feasting on “lucky foods”. Those who celebrate give their homes a good spring cleaning beforehand because during the New Year festivities period, sweeping is not allowed, because you don’t want to sweep your good luck away.
Serving a whole chicken during the Chinese New Year season symbolizes family togetherness. Noodles represent a long life – superstition says it’s bad luck to cut them. Both clams and spring rolls symbolize wealth. Tangerines and oranges are passed out freely during Chinese New Year. It is customary to serve fish at the end of the evening meal, symbolizing a wish for abundance in the coming year. Sobey’s in Picton is offering a delicious selection of choices to help you celebrate. Click here for recipes and videos, or here to visit Sobey’s on Facebook.

In Chinese tradition, each year is dedicated to a specific animal. The Dragon, Horse, Monkey, Rat, Boar, Rabbit, Dog, Rooster, Ox, Tiger, Snake, and Ram are the twelve animals that are part of this tradition. In 2012, the Dragon is welcomed back after the 2011 year of the Rabbit. Each of these animals are thought to bestow their characteristics to the people born in their year.

Use this chart to find your sign.
(Note: People born in January and February should consult the chart below the animals predictions to ensure the correct animal sign)

DRAGON – You are difficult to ignore, especially during your year! In the Year of the Water Dragon – January 23, 2012 to February 9, 2013 – you are even stronger, more dramatic, and courageous. Even in challenging times, you will set and pursue ambitious goals.

SNAKE natives can expect continuing challenges, but overall success in the Year of the Water Dragon. Collaborative efforts will bring you the best luck. Identify your friends and then work closely with them.

HORSE: Dragon energy encourages you to be extra ambitious and determined to succeed. Your dreams may come true. Teamwork helps you develop practical plans in any area of interest. You can do more cooperatively than you can alone.

GOAT: The flowing nature of Water encourages good communication and extra sensitivity to the unspoken needs of others. Remember – all it takes to unleash your natural good luck is to be true to yourself. Don’t compromise your personal integrity by taking the easy way out.

MONKEY: Monkeys are blessed with extra good luck! Because you love a challenge, even a year that could bring sudden changes of fortune will not get you down.

ROOSTER: Self-confident Roosters can expect a mixed bag of energies in the Year of the Water Dragon. With powerful Dragon influencing you, there is little you cannot achieve. However, the potential for overspending, overdoing, or overreaching lurks in the background of every decision.

DOG: The Year of the Water Dragon can bring powerful challenges to step out of your comfort zone. Influential people who may be somewhat irritating can prove to be valuable mentors who push you beyond what you thought was reasonable or possible.

PIG: The Year of the Water Dragon brings confidence and determination to you. You are tough, and can move through periods of great stress and transformation with an unusual degree of stability. Water encourages you to go with the flow.

RAT: The Year of the Water Dragon encourages a greater sense of optimism. Even in challenging times, remain clear and confident about the future you intend to create. You’ll attract powerful resources in support of your dreams.

OX: A mixed bag for down-to-earth Ox natives. On one hand, you are at home in the Water element. Your ability to wait patiently for useful opportunities is a key to your success. Expect to be recognized as a good team player.

TIGER: Expect to be a more controlled and diplomatic Tiger. This gives you an edge in times of powerful change and uncertain outcomes. You will still be enthusiastic, competitive, and energetic.

RABBIT: The Year of the Water Dragon brings powerful forces demanding confidence and flexibility. Your ability to sense other’s feelings and intentions is strong. A growing network of friends and family stand by you through times of trouble and times of joy.
