You're looking at a year of opportunities and challenges, and it's up to you to be smart about it. The Dragon brings luck, and Water favors the Rooster. You should also be happy that the coming year will be much better than the last one -- indeed, the Rabbit is hardly your friend. You'll probably do best by focusing on education, networking, communication and travel, as these tend to bring good results in a Water year. You'll also want to take care of important things during your five favorable months. If you can play things right, you'll be fine.

In what could turn out to be a so-so year, you actually have a lot of control over your career. The Dragon often brings big changes, so prepare to step outside the box and do some creative thinking. It's possible to land that promotion, and it's feasible to switch career paths -- you'll just have to take complete initiative. If there are circumstances holding you back or skills you lack, now is the time to charge forward and make improvements. Be alert for opportunities and make it your mission to network with the right people. Finally, be enterprising, step up to the plate and show your worth to the team!
On the love front, it's probably going to be a busy year ahead for you. Did you know the Dragon loves weddings? Well, actually, the Dragon loves any reason to celebrate, so you might be attending some engagement parties -- or even throwing your own. If you're single, this year should stand out as a passionate, memorable one in which meaningful growth occurs or a lasting relationship is started. If you're already attached, you might experience some drama during your unfavorable months, but you should be able to work through any issues just fine. Demands on your time will threaten to diminish the romance, however, so make sure you keep those embers burning.
There may be times this year when you feel out of control (thanks to the Dragon), and this may affect your mental and emotional state. Because of this, be sure to take excellent care of your health. Channel your energy into exercise, especially hardy sports such as kickboxing or mountain biking. Release stress with a hard workout, and don't let your diet suffer during any rough spots you may encounter. A clear mind and strong body will be necessary if you want to meet your lofty goals this year.
It seems you could come out ahead in 2012, although it may not become clear until the second half of the year. In the meantime, be more resourceful than ever as you use your practical, conservative Rooster tendencies to stay afloat. The Dragon may tempt you into making major home improvements or buying expensive outfits. Instead, make use of what you have. You might still be playing catch up from last year, so be smart in this one. Then sit back and smile if that money rolls right in during the second half of the year -- you'll have earned it!
