DRAGON:  1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012   

Dragons in a Dragon year will feel invigorated and motivated. Nothing can stop you so 2024 will be akin to being on steroids. Your fighting spirit and strength will be boosted with the triple force; first, it being  your year and then the influence of a double Wood. 2024 will draw our your vast talents and showcase them for the world to see. Your natural charisma and leadership skills will see your ideas put into action. Combined with your natural diplomacy and humour your light will shine on all of us. It is wise to be prepared and know what it is you want to manifest. Know you will need the support of a good team to achieve all your goals. The trick this year is being aware of your vulnerability and your habit not to admit when you have made a mistake. Although there will be moments of euphoria, the over amped wood influence will also bring times of stress and overload. Watch for burnout and overwhelm. For these moments know how to trust those who support you to take up the slack. Many of your dreams will come true if you do. Striking a balance between work, home and health will be ultimately important for the Dragon born. Only then can you enjoy all that you deserve and will achieve this year.

KEY WORDS: Balance, Pause and Humour 

SNAKE:  1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013

Snakes in A Dragon Year: Snakes will indeed do well in a Dragon year as they have a sweet compatibility and respect for the Dragon. Dragon years tend to be ones of personal and spiritual growth. Dragon years lead the sly intelligent Snake into deeper actualization of self, purpose and inner peace. In such a dynamic year it is Snakes challenge to use the Dragons influence for its own development. Snake are natural observers and they will know when and how to harness the energy of the year to move towards financial and career successes. They will also do well to ‘re-invent’ themselves and going inward for Snake is the key to being successful in the outer world. Your personal life will thrive and may prove to be more exciting than usual. Health matters will only surface if you overextend yourself, so take care on all levels to maintain balance.

KEY WORDS: Introspection, Defined Action, Enjoyment 

HORSE: 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014 

Horses in a Dragon Year:  Horses could find the super charged Dragon year more challenging than these past few due to demands of people and circumstance. Horses are fully able to navigate wood energy with style but must know when to take the lead and when to relinquish. To that end the independent stance of the Horse will have to give way to the herd, making decisions based on more group consensus. This way you can find your own groove and know you have good backing when you need to step back. The energy of the Dragon matches the Horse born and you will have high moments when you least expect it and even when you do. Know it is a year to seek guidance from trusted mentors in both career and financial areas of your life. Your personal life will follow your motivations and intentions this year. This will allow you to feel the inner peace needed to achieve goals even when you are overwhelmed. Keeping your joy alive will keep you balanced and healthy while inspiring others.

But know, ultimately this will lead you to a place of joy and freedom; the gift of the Dragon year! When you stay true to your abilities to adapt, you will find your grounding and forge your way ahead. If signs of stress appear, to take time to pause and return to nature.

Make time to do the things you love with those you love.
