Year of the Water Dragon

I had a Lucia-themed coffee with a Chinese friend today, and he told me about the Chinese new year coming up (on January 22). He informed me that next Chinese year is the Year of the Water Dragon. I knew that I was a Dragon, and that next year is “my” year, but I had never heard of the Water Dragon. My friend explained it to me.
It works like this: the Year of the Dragon occurs every twelve years, but there are five different Dragon Years: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water. So every 60 years it’s the Year of the Water Dragon, which is considered to be the best. I asked how it affects me, and he said I will probably get a lot of money next year.
Sounds good to me!

    Wow! The dragon is the best sign! I’m a water tiger, which is pretty good, but the dragons have like everything going for them! I’m not surprised! Enjoy your year!!

    I’m born in the year of the dragon too, hopefully that means money is coming my way next year as well? :P
