2012 is the year of the WATER Dragon. Water is the most yin/feminine element, but yin is not considered weak in Taoist astrology and feng shui. Instead, Water is the most powerful element for it can move around any obstacle in its path without losing its essential nature. Water can, in time, dissolve the hardest mountains.
Dragon year is very powerful and intense. The volume is turned up, events can occur quickly, and it;s easy to be overwhelmed. In a Water Dragon year, it is helpful to have a Water room in your home for rest, healing, and retreat.
In feng shui, a Water environment is cool and dark, like a bedroom or bathroom. The ideal Water room is quiet, soft, and restful. Water’s colors are black, blue, and shades of blue like turquoise and azure that bring a sense of calm and peace. Water objects in the home and office include all types of reflective surfaces including mirrors, glass, and cut crystal. Water is also represented by waterways, rivers, streams, pools, fountains, and aquariums.
Feng shui is important at New Year to welcome new opportunities. Clean your home as if it is spring cleaning but done now. Move any piece of furniture that has not been moved during this past year to clean behind and below it.
Dragon year can be hectic, so don’t start this year with any clutter! Now is the time to get rid of it. If how to handle money is not clear to you, then you definitely must have no clutter hidden, stashed, or hoarded. Money is symbolized by Water in feng shui. Money has a chance to flow like water this Dragon year if your home is clean and clutter free.
Happy New Year!
