The ancient Chinese Astrology is not only fascinating but also quite accurate. It’s Zodiac is based on 12 signs, a cycle of 12 years and are named after 12 symbolic animals : Rat (or Mouse), Ox (or Buffalo or Bull or Cow), Tiger, Rabbit (or Hare or Cat), Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat (or Sheep or Ram), Monkey, Rooster (or Hen or Cock or Chicken or Phoenix), Dog and Pig (or Boar or Hog).
Your Chinese Astrological Zodiac Animal Sign is based on your Chinese Lunar Year of Birth. The Chinese New Year is movable and could start anywhere between 21st January and 20th February, depending upon the year.
If your Date of Birth falls into any of these below listed Chinese Lunar Years, then, because you are born in the Year of the Dragon, you are symbolically identified as a “Dragon" :

In Chinese Hsia Calender, 2006 is the 4703rd year and is also the third year of the New Fengshui Land Luck Period 8. The new Chinese Lunar Year is from 29.01.2006 to 17.02.2007. Here are the Annual Forecasts and suggested Fengshui & Crystal Remedies that you may need for the coming “New Year 2006 : Bing Xu, the Year of the Yang Red Fire Dog" :
2006 is a critical year in your life and full of changes. Change in job, profession, nature of business : anything could happen. Expect the unexpected and brace yourself to meet all types of challenges. Lower your hopes to avoid disappointments and depressions. Projects you thought were over will get stalled; problems you had resigned to live with will suddenly get solved. Customers and loyalists will switch sides, bothways. The impact of the Year Breaker TSui Po will be quite severe. You will raise conflicts and trigger disputes wherever you go. Ignore rumours and gossips. Mind your own work and do not poke into other’s affairs. Turbulence and obstacles will follow you every step of the way. You are neck deep in negative energy and do not do anything that will sink you further. Be pateint and polite even with those who insult you. Be careful whom you deal with. Avoid stepping on others’ toes - whether they are friends, subordinates or superiors. Otherwise you will easily offend influential people around you. You will face many a crisis; train yourself to maintain calmness. Concentrate on the work in hand and stay focussed. Many of you will undergo changes in your personality itself - your entire outlook of life in general could change too. If you are a journalist, writer, copy writer, creative designer or digital artist, you will do much better than others. A Black Tourmalene Crystal Pendant and the statues of Quan Yin and Kuan Kung in the North West of your bedroom are needed. Remember : the experience that you gain this year will bear good results in future.
You are conflicting the Tai Sui this year, so display the statue of a Three Generations Dragon Head Turtle alongwith a photograph of the presiding Year Authority of 2006 in the North West, to minimise the negativities of gossips and scandals. You should also wear a Fengshui Rabbit Pendant or place the statue of a Rabbit in the East. (The position of Tai Sui corresponds to North West this year. Tai Sui is also popularly called as Grand Duke of Jupiter and is an intangible energy body of war-like nature that should not be disturbed. )
Money will flow in and flow out with the same speed. In fact you will spend more time and energy in trying to stem the outgoing money than in earning it. Unexpected expenses and frequent shopping sprees will empty your purse. Many of you will spend a lot of money while travelling and in shifting. Keep off speculative investments, share markets and gambling. Be careful with female friends and female relatives - you could end up losing a lot of money in trying to help them out. Do not act as guarantor for anybody. To control the financial loss atleast to a certain extent, keep a set of PaKua Horoscope Coins always with you and a set of Dragon & Phoenix Coins at home.
Stay hygiene. Be careful with the quality and quantity of your eats. Don’t take uncooked raw food and deep freezed foodstuff. Some could get infections related to stomach, abdomen, chest and ribcage. Females could get ovary problems and are advised to go in for a thorough gynecological and urological check-up. There could be some bruises and injuries too, but of minor nature. Drive carefully.
Not much love luck either. Many relationships will suffer due to your short temper. Ignore gossips and rumours. Do not allow your frequent mood swings to cloud your judgement. Avoid even the slightest argument otherwise you will regret a lot. No matter how much you love your spouse, the marital equation will drastically deteriorate. For singles, not a good year for courtship or marriage. Better place a statue of Three Generations Turtle or Three Generations Dragon Head Turtle in the East of the living room. In the South West of your bedroom, you can display a pair of pink Mandarin Ducks, if you are married.
