The Year of the Dragon 2012
West: Jan. 1, 2012 -- Dec. 31, 2012
East: Jan. 23, 2012 -- Feb. 9, 2013
I am the eye of the storm
The source of all beginnings
The unpredictable wizard
In charge of chaos and stability
I carry the torch
I move the immovable
I balance the scales of justice
And control the outcome
Makes me the key holder
I AM THE DRAGON
The Year of the Dragon is one of hope for those optimistic and eager to make the most out of the worst. A progressive, fast-paced and exciting year awaits anyone able to stir up momentum and keep it going.
The Dragon will not back down or be satisfied with anything less than first place. Innocent and somewhat naive, the Dragon will bolt headfirst into any potential opportunity that appears. There is no such thing as failure in the Dragon's world, only a "try, try and try again" mentality that eventually finds victory.
The United States will continue to struggle until the fall of 2012, when the momentum that has been building in the political arena comes to a head and a creative vision of what's to come begins to unfold for this great nation.

A tough year lies ahead, but with a little luck, justice and fair play will result in ample rewards.
The face of the United Kingdom will change during the Year of the Dragon.

Canada will face unexpected changes that are directly linked to its allies and partner south of the border. A strong collaboration between the two nations will be necessary to make the free world a stronger and better place to live.
