The last time the year of the Black Dragon ruled was in 1952, 60 years ago, that is how long it takes for each year to cycle to return.
This year is a powerful year, with many events to occur. The Black Dragon’s association is to water and cresting wave, and it is the masculine energy.
In the Black Dragon year it is a time of ambition, power and daring. Events seem magnified threefold with increased intensity. The energy and vitality of the Dragon year may make some people over optimistic. A Dragon year is an excellent year to start a business, marry, have children, and take incredible risks. On a global level, expect extreme earth changes, such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and tidal waves. Now, in the later on the global events this I have spoken of in my earlier predictions from the past eclipses in which occurred this past year.
Dragon in a Dragon year is to expect great things on a grand scale. Yet, if you are of the other branches it will depend on the compatibility of the Dragon with your Branch on whether or not your year will be beneficial or malefic, or challenging.
