Chinese New Year of the Wood Dragon 🐉

Kung Hei Fat Choi (gōng xǐ fā cái) 恭喜發財!
Congratulations and may you be prosperous!

Today is the year of the wood dragon - the combination of the heavenly stem ‘Jia’ which represents Yang wood and the earthly branch ‘Chen’ which represents the dragon. So we have the mythical knowledge of the dragon grounding us with wood. This is a year of evolution and prosperity. The wood dragon represents good fortune and is known as a very auspicious year for the Chinese. This is a fast paced and dynamic year - full of change and anything could happen. The dragon is the only mythical animal that is represented in the Chinese New Year hence this being a bit special.

In Chinese five element - wood represents spring. Like a new bud emerging from the soil this is all about new growth. It is about attaining greatness - it’s a year to push forward and be strong, courageous and honourable to oneself and in return be bestowed with prosperity and good fortune.

This also represents the move of a new chapter of the Fen Shui Xuan Kong flying star system (these affect the fen shui of the world). Each star represents a period of twenty years so we move this year from an 8 to a 9. The nine star represents a more feminine energy, supporting creativity and the arts, spirituality but also technology - maybe a hint of this has been seen recently emerging. Isn’t this wonderful how the Chinese astrology blends with the western…

So we really do start this year with a bang. Yesterdays huge new moon, today the year of the dragon, Pluto’s move into Aquarius and so much more to come. It’s exciting times all here to help us grow! Embrace it and use the magic medicine of the wood dragon to help you on your journey!

With much love and dragon blessings

[I took this photo earlier in the year of a fabulous natural wood dragon that resides in the cave of an 800 year old oak tree that I pass often on my river walks. This is the first time I have noticed him and must have passed this tree so many times - he was just asking for his image to be captured!]
