... the life of a Dragon .... the Master of Illusion
Dragons like Shakira and Rihanna promise a lot.
Chinese call the Dragon "Chén" what means "lóng" - witty.
Several Dragons are having the chance to wake up as Super Bowl Champions on the very first day of the 2016 Monkey year, what may illustrate the enormous potential that such years are offering.
In fact, the Monkey is one of the classic soul mates of the Dragons, so that he is likely to allocate plenty good karma in 2016.
Back in the last year of the Monkey even an average Tennis player like Lindsay Davenport had been able to conquer the No.1 ranking position though she has never won a Grand Slam title in her career.
That may illustrate, how well the crazy Monkey is looking after the mighty Dragons, who will have it all in their own hands in 2016.
Compared to the Goat year the Monkey Year 2016 will become a lot faster and plenty of moves and much turmoil can be expected as well as much more opportunities, which will require speedy and some very precise decisions.
Certainly the year of the Monkey will become wilder by the month and the Dragons will have to remain as cool as possible instead of getting blown away by obstacles.
Overall, the the Year of the Monkey is offering new crossroads, new insight and it can be good fun, very entertaining and highly sociable until things will turn much more sticky and way more problematic in the 2017 Year of the Rooster.
