2012 is Year of the Dragon and it will arrive on February 4, 2012. Many people must be eager to know if they will have better luck in the coming year than previous years. Here, we want to use Chinese Astrology Five Elements (Metal, Water, Wood, Fire and Earth) theory to explain people's fortune in 2012 and foresee what will be happening to them in the year of the Dragon.

According to Chinese Five Element Astrology Calendar, 2012 is the Year of Water Dragon Female Water. The color of Water in Five Elements system is related to Black. Therefore we can say 2012 is a Black Dragon, Water Dragon or Black Water Dragon year.

Chinese Astrology is a Balance Theory of Five Elements. 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.

     Your Lucky Element     

The following is the example of the Chinese Astrology Birth Chart.

The Birth Chart of June 15, 2008
Upper Row of Day Column (Day Master) represents the Person

Fire represents the person. This Birth Chart shows Fire-Type Person

This person was born on June 15, 2008. The symbol of the upper row of the Day Column (a.k.a. Day Master) represents the person. So we can say Day Master is Male Fire, which represents the person. The birth chart has too little Metal and needs more Metal to balance the Five Elements. Therefore, the Lucky Element is Metal.

2012 is Male Water Dragon year. Dragon contains Earth, Water and Wood. Dragon and Rat in the Year Column have attraction relationship into Water. That means Water is pretty strong in 2012. Day Master Fire is afraid of Water. Water brings the pressure on the Day Master Fire. This baby is about 4 year old. Therefore, it should be watched for the health.

Water is also related to jobs and/or career. If this person was born on June 30, 1948, then this person should have a good career opportunity in 2012. 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. This implies a family, health or marriage issue will appear in 2012.

     Fortune Basic - Lucky Element and Day Master Type     

2012 is the Water Dragon year. Dragon contains Earth. People whose Earth score is low will receive benefits from Dragon. Dragon also contains Water. 2012 will bring good luck for people whose Lucky Element is Water. Dragon is the last year of the Wood cycle. Dragon carries the Wood energy from Rabbit of 2011. If you did very well in 2011 and your Lucky Element is Wood, then your luck will most likely continue during the year of Dragon.

The following table shows people's luck in 2012 based on their Luck Element.

Lucky Element How good is my luck in 2012?
  Metal When Metal is under Water. People cannot see the Metal, unless they watch carefully into Water. Also, Water can protect Metal, if a strong Fire element is around. Therefore the luck of 2012 is fine.
  Water It's very good, 2012 is a strong Water year. There is nothing can stop the luck coming to you. You can feel it and people can see good luck over you all the time.
  Wood It's good. Water can help Wood (tree) growing. That means Wood can become strong with the support of Water. But if the birth chart already has lots of Water, then Wood might be rooted out when extra Water comes. Luckily, Dragon contains Earth and Wood, which can help Wood survive in the Water.
  Fire It's not good. Fire is afraid of Water. When too much Water comes, then Fire has a chance to be extinguished. That implies many pressures will come in 2012. Depending on the relationship between Fire and Day Master, Fire might be related to money, career, reputation or health. This is a year to watch for safety.
Earth It's fair. Lots of Water can flash away Earth and make Water dirty. Luckily, Dragon contains Earth. Therefore, the luck of 2012 cannot last too long, but the opportunity is always around. You will have better luck between the change of seasons.

The following table tells people's what event might happen in 2012 based on their Day Master Element Type. Day Master is the upper row symbol in the Day Column of the Birth Chart.

  Metal Water represents your outlook or expression to show the public. So it is related to performance, speech, behavior , freedom and fame. Therefore, your social life will increase. You will have many opportunity to show your talent. People will talk about you. If you have a positive attitude, then you should earn a good reputation from people. If you don't have a strong mind and don't have confidence about yourself, then people might not paint you in the same light. More than likely, taking care of such a busy life will consume your energy when you have many activities with people.

Dragon contains Earth. Earth is the mother element of Metal. So Earth is connected to your parents, teachers or someone who supports you. It also related to your health, protection, housing or education.

If your Metal is weak, then you will receive the help from people who support you. They also give you compliments about your behavior.

If your Water is strong, then your friends will provide you different advice or suggestions very often. Those opinions can confuse you and lead you to make the wrong decision or investment. If you cannot please your friends, then they may bring you a bad reputation. In general, you will have a mixed reputation in 2012.

  Water Water represents your friends, siblings or same generation relatives. The 2012 events will connected to them and spend most of time with them. You will have more energy in social activities. If Water is your Lucky Element, then you will get lots of courage and support from your siblings or friends. If you are doing business, then your friends or business partners will help you to bring in more income. If Water is your Unlucky Element, then your friends or relatives will bring you trouble. They might ask for a loan, or you may be forced to spend money on them.

The major element of Dragon is Earth. Water is afraid of Earth. Earth brings pressure on Water. So Earth represents law, career, boss or position. If you have a lot of Water in the birth chart, then Dragon will bring a job opportunity. If you waste money in spending, Dragon will give you advice on how to save money. If someone wants to borrow money from you, then sometimes Dragon will help you to say no. If you have a little Water in the birth chart, your friends and siblings will fully support you when you face trouble in career, argument or lawsuit.

In general, 2012 will be a very good year for people whose Water element score is low. The high score Water people need a conservative attitude in the Water Dragon year.

  Wood Water is the mother element of Wood. Water represents parents, mentors, elders, protection, teachers, knowledge, education, medicine and/or health. Therefore, people who care you a lot will often be in contact with you in 2012. They will give you good support and good reputation. You will earn a lot of knowledge from their advice, and bring up your confidence. This will help your career development or money investment. But if Water is your Unlucky Element, then either they cannot give you good recommendations or you cannot accept their opinions. This might result in bad decision making and you might lose career or money opportunities.

Dragon is Earth, which is related to money and wealth. Therefore something to do with money, finance or investment will also happen to you in 2012. If you have strong Wood, you will have more chances to increase your income or investment. If you have enough money, then you can think about the investment on housing, which is connected to Water.

Dragon also contains Wood and Water. Wood will become stronger. If you have high score Wood in the birth chart, then you should watch for your words and deeds, otherwise bad reputation might come to you very soon. Also, there is a chance of poor health.

  Fire Water can extinguish the Fire. Because of this, Water brings pressure to Fire. Therefore, Water is related to your career, position, boss, teacher, police or law. This is not a good sign for career and health unless you have very strong Fire in the birth chart. But you shouldn't have too much trouble, if your Day Master is Female Fire . This is because Female Fire and Male Water of 2012 have attraction relationship into Wood. That means pressure becomes protection, or we can say that Female Fire knows how to handle the pressure from Male Fire. This is a sign of a good people relationship. If you are a woman, then this is a year for love relationship. If you are lucky, then it might end up a marriage.

If your Day Master is Male Fire Male Wood, then you should think about patience, safety and conservativeness in the Water Dragon year.

Dragon is Earth, which is the Child Element of Fire. That implies Fire will give away its energy to Earth. So Earth will make Fire weak. If both Water and Dragon can weaken the Fire, then you need to watch for your health, safety, career and lawsuit. You shouldn't involve into to any competition or argument. You should to watch your behavior and stay alert to prevent accidents.

Wood is the Mother Element of Fire. When trouble is coming in 2012. Fire should look for Wood for help since Wood can overcome Earth and Wood can pass Water energy to Fire.

Earth Water represents money or wealth to Earth. Therefore the major event in 2012 will be money related. If you have strong Earth in your birth chart, then money opportunity is around you all year long. Your income, investment and wealth will increase quickly. But if you have a weak Earth in the birth chart, then money trouble will come to you soon. Therefore you shouldn't do any risky investments. There is no easy money. You have to earn money the hard way. You probably should not loan money to friends. It is also advisable to not loan money for investments, either. Otherwise, money opportunities will become debts.

Dragon contains Earth. Earth is related to friends, relatives, coworkers or business partners. All friendship or people relationship will become the money relationship. Either they will help you to bring in more income or help you to spend your money. Water is an opposite element of Earth. If Water can bring in money, then Earth will spend money out. If Water can waste your money, then Earth can help you to earn some back. In short, 2012 will be the year of money going in and out.

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 Chicken is in the Day Column of the birth chart, then you might think about marriage in 2012.

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 Male Wood or Male Earth Dog Female Wood 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.
