The Dragon is a major symbol of good fortune in Chinese Astrology,
considered one of the luckiest animals and symbolizes strength, power,
virtue, harmony and longevity. It is considered a great honor by the
Chinese to be born in the year of the Dragon and is considered the most
special sign and is sometimes called the karmic sign.
If you ignore the dragon, it will eat you. If you try to confront the
dragon it will overpower you. If you ride the dragon, you will take
advantage of its might and power.
~ A Chinese Proverb
know very little about Chinese Astrology, but think it is interesting
that Mozart and I are both Dragons, visiting China for the first time in
a Dragon year. Just as it was interesting that my mother who is a
Rabbit, came to Asia to celebrate Chinese New Year with us last
year...which just happened to be the year of the Rabbit.
DaVinci is a Snake, so next year is the year of the Snake ( starting
around February) and we will all be celebrating that one in Asia too.
Hmmmm,coincidense? Funny where life leads us as these things were not planned. Do you know what your Chinese Astrology sign is?
By the time you read this post, we should be in China. We look forward to sharing our adventure into more Mandarin immersion and exploring China with you! What would you most like to know?
