2012 — the enigmatic year we have all been waiting for. What is it going to take to pierce the veils of mystery and bring the reality of 2012 into focus?
The number of precision alignments converging in Constellation Ophiuchus on January 20 as the Moon conjuncts her North Lunar Node presages the power of the coming Chinese New Year of the Water Dragon with authority.
The North Lunar Node is also referred to in Astrology as the “Dragon’s Head.”
Preparation for the arrival of the Year of the Chinese Water Dragon 2012 begins with Celestial Dragon Alchemy as the Moon conjuncts the North Nodal point in Constellation Ophiuchus on the 20th. Here is a glimpse of the cosmic energies for the day.
January 20, 2012 (1/20/2012)
- Solar-Lunar Interplay: Sagittarius-Capricornus Cusp Sun, Ophiuchus Moon
- Lunar-Solar Cycle Theme: Spirituality, Ideals, Aspirations, Goal-setting – the Milky Way Galaxy – Business, Politics, Government & the Eye of the Eagle
- Lunar Phase Theme: The Transformation Power in Healing & Wisdom
- Moon Phase: Waning Crescent crossing the North Lunar Node
- Mercury in Sagittarius at the 43Sgr Portal of the Twin Vortex System
- Asteroid Imhotep in Constellation Ophiuchus in Ecliptic Longitude alignment with Alpha Ophiuchus, Ras Alhague
- Asteroid Asclepius in Constellation Ophiuchus applying to alignment with Alpha Scorpius, Omega Ophiuchus and Zeta Ophiuchus, Han
When the Moon crosses the Ecliptic Plane from South to North she will be transducing a bolt of Solar System current from the Earth’s Zodiac Belt at the nodal point called Rahu or “the Dragon’s Head” before moving on to her next Nodal crossing on the following day. She will cross the Galactic Plane from North to South — the Dragon’s Tail — where a similar transduction process will occur but with the energy upgraded. This crossing point is a Galactic-Earth Lunar Node as it connects the principles of Luna’s nodal points with the fact that it is the Galactic Zodiac Belt from the Earth’s perspective that is being crossed.
Meanwhile, at the same time the Dragon Moon is crossing the Galactic Equator the Sun will be crossing a constellation boundary, leaving Sagittarius and moving into Constellation Capricornus. Sun and Moon will be on their respective constellation cusps at extreme opposite ends of Constellation Sagittarius for only some minutes — affording just enough time for a plasma arc to connect them both with the Galactic Spiritual Plane at the same time (the Center of the Milky Way Galaxy resides in Constellation Sagittarius) to imbue both Sun and Moon with Cosmic Spiritual Fire — not enough fire power to boil the blood or set anything ablaze. Just enough to bond them both to the same Spiritual ideals, goals, and benevolent intentions so their offspring have a good chance at being Rainbow Dragons.
We will watch the Solar Activity to see if the Sun has generated such an arc of Solar Light.
January 21, 2012 (01/21/2012)
- Lunar-Solar Cycle Theme: Business, Politics, Government & the Eye of the Eagle
- Lunar Phase Theme: Moon crosses Galactic Plane – Galactic Ketu, the Dragon’s Tail
- Moon Phase: Waning Crescent
- Asteroid Asclepius in Ophiuchus aligned with Alpha Scorpius (Antares), Omega & Zeta (Han) Ophiuchus
- Asteroid Imhotep in Ophiuchus aligned with Alpha Ophiuchus (Ras Alhague)
- one Celestial Earth Dragon’s Head in Ophiuchus
- one Galactic Earth Dragon’s Tail in Sagittarius
On January 23rd at 7:39 UTC the Moon will slip into total darkness for her union in conjunctio with the Sun on the Chinese New Year of the Water Dragon. This occurs in the Cardinal Earth constellation-sign of Capricornus.
The Chinese New Year FAQ
Chinese New Year starts with the New Moon on the first day of the new year and ends on the full moon 15 days later. The 15th day of the new year is called the Lantern Festival, which is celebrated at night with lantern displays and children carrying lanterns in a parade.
January 23, 2012 07:39 UTC
On the Chinese New Year the Sun and Moon will make an Egg the likes of which certainly the Earth has never seen before — maybe the Galaxy and the Universe too — and the Water Dragon will carry this Egg to term.
Does anybody have any idea how long that may be? I guess we will just have to figure that out too. Here are the significant alignments at 7:39 UTC from Stonehenge on January 23, 2012.
Note to me: With Arcturian DNA we will have to watch for signs the 2012 Water Dragon’s gestation period has been accelerated.
- Zenith of the sky at Stonehenge, Constellation Boötes near the Boötes-Draco Boundary at Ecliptic Lon. 204.1324°
- Aligned with Alpha Boötes (Arcturus) Ecliptic Lon. 204.4029
- Aligned with Alpha Virgo (Spica) Ecliptic Lon. 204.0098
- The stars of Constellation Draco not precisely at Zenith from inside Stonehenge but virtually overhead
- Sun & Moon conjunct with Alpha Capricornus, Algedi and Beta Capricornus, Dabih
- Soul Relationship Contracts – Juno in Constellation Libra aligned with Mu Serpens, Gamma Hercules and Alpha Centaurus, a star of the Galactic Centaur that rests directly on the Galactic Zodiac Belt
Reading the zodiac chemistry or most significant celestial DNA of the offspring in the Egg based on the conditions at conception and fertilization should not be difficult. What’s going into the Egg looks to be decidedly fe-male, serpentine, strong, and with attributes of Galactic Chiron which would include being a Rainbow Healer and Bridger, a wise sage and mentor with innate knowledge of the secrets of life and death — an immortal.
Allow me to pull the “No Accidents In The Universe” card as I point out James Muir’s video closes with a lantern scene. Any bets on whether or not, Mr. Muir (being a December 1 Ophiuchus native) was randomly inspired to end his video thus?
Excerpted from All About Caduceus by James N. Muir …
Whirling up in their own double vortex of energy rise the twin serpents of the Caduceus. Like the serpents which the Hopi legends say reside at the earth’s poles awaiting the time to be re-awakened into activity, they are kept in balance by her wisdom in a symbiotic relationship of spiritual/physical, heart/head energies and form the double helix of the human DNA molecule. The python represents the “spiritual” while the cobra symbolizes the “body”; both in harmony provide a balance point or fulcrum for the “mind” to bring forth peace and healing.
The old earth symbolically, and literally, is falling away to reveal the golden orb of a new world of enlightenment, harmony and peace. America is transformed into the genesis of that New Era, tasked to responsibly lead the way into a brighter and better future for all. If she fails in this regeneration, then her fate is sealed and the Phoenix shall rise from the ashes of her funeral pyre.
The base establishes the orientation of the four quarters with the center, the sacred point or “Sanctum Sanctorum” being the earth herself. While we, as humans, must heal the earth, the earth must first heal us humans. The perfect elixir of the mythical “philosopher’s stone” combined the four elements in ideal balance to heal any “dis-ease.” This magic elixir flows forth gentle as the rain from the spouts of each element — Fire, Water, Air, Earth–through Truth and Peace to the four corners of the earth. The true physician can only heal through the power of love and, though the lessons will be hard ones, the earth will teach us love-love for this sacred living planet, love for all creation, and perhaps even love for ourselves. Then, and only then, will we take our rightful place as master physicians to share the promise of Caduceus’ enigmatic dolphin in healing the earth and being the true stewards of all creation. As the most important symbol of all, the benevolent, compassionate expression of the lady herself, is to remind us all that perfect healing must begin with perfect love and, even in the darkest hour of the darkest night of the soul, Love will be the Master Physician.
And here we thought all Ophiuchus was connected to was a doctor carrying a staff with a single snake wrapped around it.
How short-sighted we were!
There may also be twins in that egg, or two eggs, possibly one of each gender although the male may be more yin than yang. We will have to wait and see how it works out.
- This page contains ‘predictions’. The solar flare activity between January 19-23 seemed to come in pairs. See Solar Fire for the 2012 Chinese Water Dragon for details.
As the air element is lacking, unless I have missed something the prediction is no wings. However, with Ophiuchus 5th Element Ether and Galactic Chiron DNA anything is possible.
There will be some plasma capabilities, but only as a last resort in case something like cosmic napalm is needed to deal with subsurface infestations. Laced with an Etheric healing agent we can see napalm-style possibilities for infusion of biological agents for regeneration of organic systems in the deep tissue layers of the planetary body. Remember this Dragon (or Dragons) is/are the Rainbow Healer(s).
Ophiuchus & the Dragon-serpent
Our first Ophiuchus challenge for 2012 is to discover the continuing and sustainable relevance of Ophiuchus to the fact that 2012 is the Year of the Chinese Water Dragon.
Here is what your sky atlas will likely have to say about Constellation Ophiuchus:
The constellation takes its name from the Greek Asclepius, the master physician who never lost a patient to death. Asclepius could revive the dying and recently dead using soma or amrita, “the deathless drink,” said to reside in the blood or venom of a monstrous snake with dragonish features. Hades, god of the dead, angered at Asclepius’s filching of souls rightfully belonging in the Underworld, convinced his brother Zeus who did strike the mortal Asclepius down with a Thunderbolt for using powers reserved for the gods. However, Zeus placed Asclepius in the sky to honor him and to appease his father Apollo, calling the constellation “Ophiuchus,” which is Greek for “serpent holder.”
Constellation Ophiuchus was co-created by the Celestial Sphere and the International Astronomical Union who gave birth to it by cesarean section in 1930 from the fixed water sign of Scorpio.
- Ophiuchus Trivia factoid #1. In Ancient Greece a child delivered by cesarean section fell automatically under the protection and patronage of Apollo, Greek God of Light, Music & Medicine.
Between 1928 and 1930 the International Astronomical Union (IAU) decided for good and fair reason to dispense with the plethora of conflicting ancient star maps and create constellations to better serve the technical needs of modern day astronomy scientists by setting fixed boundaries around the star groupings, a job that was not ever going to be simple1. Because it was the serpent holder star grouping and not the scorpion that occupied the lion’s share of the degrees of longitude along the ecliptic plane, IAU assigned 19 degrees of the zodiac belt to Ophiuchus and only as many degrees as constellation Scorpius actually occupied at the belt: less than 7 degrees.
Today Astrologers who understand the importance of research into the works of scholars are excavating this new celestial site to see what they can find in the way of buried treasure. One of the most significant discoveries indeed represents that which at the most fundamental level constitutes the salvation of this world and its planet — the balancing and harmonizing return of Goddess.
Buried alive more than three and a half millenniums ago, the Minoan Serpent Goddess of Crete and other religious and cultural icons mark the grave of a long standing if not predominant goddess culture predating the Greek Dark Age in and around Crete and indeed elsewhere along the Phoenician trade routes that spanned the Mediterranean.
In terms of how the face of Goddess relates to Constellation Ophiuchus in particular, we observe first the simple body language of the Constellation (see sky map above), how its posture mirrors that of the serpent goddesses while it bears no resemblance to the images of the Greek Asclepius which show him carrying the famous Staff of Asclepius.
Compare these postures with the sky map of the constellation above. And then make mental note of this so whenever you see images of Hygiea, the Serpent Goddesses or Asclepius you can observe the body language. You will find the body language of the Divine Feminine is open while that of the Divine Masculine is closed.
The image in the sky is open.

We also note the zodiac sign of the scorpion (death-rebirth) which has been veiling constellation Ophiuchus these past thousands of years is elementally a water sign.
As such, this sign is energetically negative and therefore by extension predisposed by nature to a gender feminine presence. After thousands of years of male dominance, reclaiming the balance demands a thorough exploration of this question as long as we are in the process of discovering and uncovering information and perspectives on this new-to-us star grouping. We need full disclosure of the facts underlying this critical constellation-sign’s form and history. And then we need to do the right thing and escort Goddess to her rightful place in the sky, the one that was Co-created by the Cosmos and Humanity’s Astro-physical community.
In case there are any Astrologers out there who are not comfortable having their work done for them by the Astronomy community I would like to remind us all that like Chiron, Astronomy and Astrology are the two halves of a single Immortal Being. The metaphor should be crystal clear.
Goddess, & the dragon-serpent
When the Sun, Moon and planets pass through Ophiuchus, they are always traveling in the Zodiac Dragon sector of the Celestial Sphere. See sky map above.
Since 2011 transiting planets have been crossing the North Lunar Node — which is called Rahu or the Dragon’s Head. This condition will continue until early 2013.
During the January 2012 lunar transit of the North Lunar Node preceding the official beginning of the Chinese New Year the Moon will be collecting a last bit of 2011 Zodiac Dragon energy with which to set the tone for the Chinese Year of the Water Dragon 2012, filtered through Constellation Ophiuchus.
The Chinese Year of the Water Dragon will highlight the Divine Feminine.
In that connection the feminine ‘side’ of Constellation Ophiuchus – that underlying principle and element which has so long lain hidden beneath the layers of history, myth and legend written by the patriarchy to program humanity for the patriarchal age – will come fully alive, awake, and cosmically self-aware.
What might that look like in terms of change being brought to bear on us in 2012?
Constellation Ophiuchus took the upper hand in our Solar System in 2006 in a number of ways. One of those ways left planet Pluto, the Astrological non-sacred planet associated with, among other things, the criminal element in society, reclassified by the International Astronomical Union. It is now a Dwarf Planet.
For details on the Ophiuchus effect in our Solar System in 2006 see the following offerings:
- Ophiuchus Tips for Astrologers ~ Pluto
- Ophiuchus Tips for Astrologers ~ Quaoar
- Solar Physicists Stymied
Astrologers are still in shock and denial over Pluto’s status change as is a good portion of mass consciousness. But if they could see it as a sign that the dark element is losing its grip on this planet, or if they understood how thought forms condition and control our thinking and acceptance of tyranny, would they be so sad to see Pluto demoted?
By the end of the Chinese Year of the Water Dragon 2012, a sense of inevitability will shine clearly through to tell us whether the Scorpion-Serpent-Eagle Alchemy will complete itself successfully. We make no prediction as to what humanity can expect. The outcome is far from certain at this early juncture since everything depends on you – on us – and how humanity responds day by day.
The Zodiac Dragon’s Lair
Since we will all be living in the first-ever Chinese Year of the Water Dragon consciously contributed to by the Celestial Dragon in the Ophiuchus Fixed Water sector of the Zodiac Belt (described above), it seems important to talk a little bit about the dragon.
The Western equivalent of the Dragon may be Aries in the eyes of the source of the information I have copy-pasted here (see below), but based on the sky map I have shown you (see above), the Zodiac Sign of our local planetary Celestial Water Dragon in the eyes of the Universe is Ophiuchus.
Since Constellation Draco is indisputably the Zodiac Dragon and since Draco resides in the Ophiuchus sector of the Zodiac Belt, ergo now that Astrology has gone from a 2-dimensional pie chart to a celestial sphere, the Zodiac Dragon is revealed to be Ophiuchan.
Have you seen enough to convince you that Ophiuchus & the Water Dragon are a winning combination in 2012?
The Asian Dragon in general tends to appear more serpentine than the dragons of the west. I’m not sure exactly what that means in terms of dragon type vis a vis Constellation Ophiuchus. But I mention it just the same.
Here is some information on the Chinese Dragon (since it’s the Chinese Water Dragon that is being celebrated this year) that you can use whether you are Ophiuchus or not. This will help connect all dragonkind with the Chinese Year of the Water Dragon 2012, the Zodiac Dragon which is Celestial, and the Celestial Ophiuchus Dragon which is a specific vibration of the Celestial Zodiac Dragon.
Types of Chinese Dragons
There are nine major types of Chinese dragons. These include the horned dragon, the winged dragon, the celestial dragon (which supports and protects the mansions of the gods), the spiritual dragon which generates wind and rain for the benefit of mankind), the dragon of hidden treasures (which keeps guard over concealed wealth), the coiling dragon (which lives in water), and the yellow dragon (which once emerged from water and presented the legendary Emperor Fu Shi with the elements of writing)
The last of the nine is the dragon king, which actually consists of four separate dragons, each of which rules over one of the four seas, those of the east, south, west, and north.
The most powerful generalized type of Chinese dragon is the horned dragon, or lung, which can produce rain and is totally deaf. Additionally, there is a homeless dragon (Ii) that lives in the ocean and another type (chiao) that is scale-covered and usually inhabits marshes but also keeps dens in the mountains.
There are also nine ways the Chinese have traditionally represented these dragons, each one revealing a different dragon characteristic. There are dragons carved on the tops of bells and gongs, because of the beast’s habit of calling loudly when attacked.
A second type is carved on the screws of fiddles, since most dragons are fond of music.
A third is carved on the tops of stone tablets, because of dragons’ love of literature.
A fourth is found at the bottom of stone monuments, as dragons can support heavy weights.
A fifth is placed on the eaves of temples, as dragons are ever alert to danger.
A sixth occurs on the beams of bridges, since dragons are fond of water.
A seventh is carved on Buddha’s throne, as dragons like to rest.
An eighth is placed on the hilts of swords, since dragons are known to be capable of slaughter.
The ninth is carved on prison gates, as these are dragons that are fond of quarreling and trouble making.
The colors of Chinese dragons are evidently quite variable, but in the case of the chiao type its back is striped with green, its sides are yellow, and it is crimson underneath.
The nine major characteristics of a lung type dragon include a head like a camel’s, horns like a deer’s, eyes like a hare’s, ears like a bull’s, a neck like an iguana’s, a belly like a frog’s, scales like a carp’s, paws like a tiger’s, and claws like an eagle’s. It has a pair of large canine teeth in its upper jaw. The long, tendril-like whiskers extending from either side of its mouth are probably used for feeling its way along the bottom of muddy ponds.
In color dragons vary from greenish to golden, with a series of alternating short and long spines extending down the back and along the tail, where they become longer. One specimen had wings at its side, and walked on top of the water. Another tossed its mane back and forth making noises that sounded like a flute.
Cow-heads are also common. A ten-footer, found lying on the banks of China’s Yangtze River, was different from most because of its long, thick eyebrows. A Yellow River variety, seen on shore in the 1920s by a Chinese teacher, was bright blue, and as big as five cows. Both dragons crawled into the water as soon as it started to rain.
A few dragons begin life as fish. Carp, who successfully jump rapids and leap over waterfalls, change into fish-dragons. A popular saying, “The carp has leaped through the dragon’s gate,” means success, especially for students who have passed their exams.
Male dragons sometimes mate with other species of animal. A dragon fathers an elephant when he mates with a pig, and he sires a racehorse, after mating with a mare.

The Dragon personality The Dragon is a creature of myth and legend. A symbol of good fortune and sign of intense power, the Oriental Dragon is regarded as a divine beast – the reverse of the malicious monster that Westerners felt necessary to find and slay. In Eastern philosophy, the Dragon is said to be a deliverer of good fortune and a master of authority. Therefore, those people born in Dragon years are to be honored and respected.
Years of the Dragon
Fifth in the cycle, Dragon Years follow the Rabbit and recur every twelfth year. The Chinese New Year does not fall on a specific date, so it is essential to check the calendar to find the exact date on which each Dragon Year actually begins
1904 * 1916 * 1928 * 1940 * 1952 * 1964 * 1976 * 1988 * 2000
THE SIGN OF THE DRAGON
The key to the Dragon personality is that Dragons are the free spirits of the Zodiac. Conformation is a Dragon’s curse. Rules and regulations are made for other people. Restrictions blow out the creative spark that is ready to flame into life. Dragons must be free and uninhibited. The Dragon is a beautiful creature, colorful and flamboyant. An extroverted bundle of energy, gifted and utterly irrepressible, everything Dragons do is on a grand scale – big ideas, ornate gestures, extreme ambitions. However, this behavior is natural and isn’t meant for show. Because they are confident, fearless in the face of challenge, they are almost inevitably successful. Dragons usually make it to the top. However, Dragon people be aware of their natures. Too much enthusiasm can leave them tired and unfulfilled. Even though they are willing to aid when necessary, their pride can often impede them from accepting the same kind of help from others. Dragons’ generous personalities give them the ability to attract friends, but they can be rather solitary people at heart. A Dragon’s self-sufficiency can mean that he or she has no need for close bonds with other people.
People born in the Year of the Dragon share certain characteristics. The Dragon sign is an abbreviated way of characterizing that individual’s personality. Following are features associated with the sign of the Dragon.
- Fifth in order, Chinese name-LONG, sign of luck
- Hour-7am-8:59 a.m. Month-April
- Western Counterpart-Aries
IN YOUR ELEMENT
The characteristics of the Dragon Sign are tempered by one of the five Chinese elements of Metal, Water, Wood, Fire and Earth overlaying a 5-year cycle of characteristics on the original 12-year cycle.
THE METAL DRAGON 1940 AND 2000
Truthful but extreme, courageous but unyielding, Metal Dragons have a strength similar to the Dragon fire. Metal Dragons succeed through determination. They are mighty and respect people who stand up to them. In troubled times, these Dragons make great allies, but become ferocious challengers. Metal Dragons can often calm others through their forceful personalities. They seek action, and things are never better than when they are defending a thought or belief about which they have complete faith. Metal Dragons like to lead, and have an affect that makes others want to follow them. Yet even if they attract no support they will fight alone.
THE WATER DRAGON 1952 AND 2012
Water has a calming effect on the Dragon’s fearless temperament. Water allows the Dragon to re-direct its enthusiasm, and makes him more perceptive of others. These Dragons are better equipped to take a step back to re-evaluate a situation because they understand the art of patience and do not desire the spotlight like other Dragons. Therefore, they make smart decisions and are able to see eye-to-eye with other people. However, their actions can go wrong if they do not research or if they do not finish one project before starting another.
THE WOOD DRAGON 1904 AND 1964
Wood has a modifying influence and brings creativity to this sign. Questioning and liberal, Wood Dragons enjoy talking about original ideas and are open to other points of view. They are innovative, imaginative practical and appreciate art in each of its forms. Generally less pretentious than other Dragons, Wood Dragons have an ability to get along with other people. They have the essentials to build a prosperous and happy life for themselves. Still, Wood Dragons are outspoken and at times a bit pushy to quell everyone, even in the most friendly quarrel.
THE FIRE DRAGON 1916 AND 1976
The Fire Dragon is a powerful force to be reckoned with. This is a Dragon doubled! The Fire Dragon can move from calm and collected to combustible in a matter of seconds. In some ways the Fire Dragon is his or her own worst enemy. These Dragons cannot help feeling they are valuable and all-knowing. When they are right their vehemence and vigor is an asset to the cause, and though they value objectivity, they do not always employ the best decision-making measures, and sometimes jump to the wrong conclusion. They also suffer from recklessness and quick tempers. Yet, when they do keep their temper, emotions, and rivaling spirit under control, they emanate a commanding influence on other people.
THE EARTH DRAGON 1928 AND 1988
Earth Dragons make great managers because they are practical, levelheaded and demonstrate a knack for organizing. They still have the need to dictate and be admired, but they are affable, congenial and supportive. Compared to other Dragons, Earth Dragons are less likely to breathe fire at the least irritation. They will work diligently to complete their life goals. The Earth element adds a greater portion of self-control to the Dragon’s personality and usually the Earth Dragon is deserving of the respect he or she desires. These Dragons take their life and romantic responsibilities quite seriously.
HEALTH AND HOME
Dragons take thrilling risks and burn the candle at both ends so they are fortunate to be blessed with good health. Among the most hearty of the Animal signs, they can suffer bad health as a result of stress. Symptoms of their personalities often stem from emotional outbursts and can range from tension headaches to depression to hypertension. Dragons can remedy these problems by maintaining their cool, implementing a routine in their daily lives, and utilizing exercises such as yoga or tai kwon do that soothe the mind and spirit as well as tone the body.
AT HOME WITH THE DRAGON
Not the most domesticated of the Animal signs, Dragons and may be more content out and about rather than at home. Nevertheless, with their imagination and artistic sense, they can enjoy decorating their home or anywhere else where their extravagance can be expressed.. A Dragon’s home should be as large and majestic as his personality, providing space for the fiery temperament or emotional eruptions that accompany their character.
CAREER AND FINANCE
THE DRAGON AT WORK
The Dragon’s originality is the most impressive and outstanding of all his characteristics. The Dragon is quite imaginative and always able to see new paths where others may run into brick walls. Dragons are very adaptable and are fit for various occupations, especially if those occupations allow him to take the limelight. In any of these occupational situations, the Dragons will take a radical approach. Dragons work hard, but would rather give orders than receive them. They should avoid jobs that encompass too much routine, and should move toward jobs in which their self-reliance can be an asset.
FINANCE AND THE DRAGON
Dragons like to spend money and are charitable themselves as well as with others. They do not know the meaning of the word “accumulate,” and making money does not intrigue them as it may others. Many Dragons will take big chances with their finances, sometimes betting on their shirt and losing it right off of their backs. Yet, they were born with the Midas Touch, and it very rare that a Dragon remains poor for long. Dragons will always be straightforward in financial dealings and can always be trusted.
Those born in the Year of the Dragon also share the same kinds of goals and objectives in life. The occupations best suited for the Dragon are listed below:
DRAGONS MAKE EXCELLENT:
- Computer analysts
- PR People
- Advertising agents
- Officers in the armed forces
- “Originally the constellations were defined informally by the shapes made by their star patterns, but, as the pace of celestial discoveries quickened in the early 20th century, astronomers decided it would be helpful to have an official set of constellation boundaries. One reason was to aid in the naming of new variable stars, which brighten and fade rather than shine steadily. Such stars are named for the constellation in which they reside, so it is important to agree where one constellation ends and the next begins. Eugène Delporte originally listed the 88 “modern” constellations on behalf of the IAU Commission 3 (Astronomical Notations), in Délimitation scientifique des constellations. (Delporte,1930)” http://www.iau.org/public_press/themes/constellations/ ↩
