Year of the Wood Dragon

While I’m no expert in Chinese Astrology, I do enjoy this annual New Year’s tradition because it celebrates optimism, possibility, and a fresh start. The Chinese New Year starts on February 10th of 2024.

As a dog, I identify with the characteristics of loyalty, honesty, and kindness & compassion, and pragmatism. But you may not feel the same way. 🙂 Wondering if your sign matches how you see yourself? You can check out your own traits here.

Each year is associated with one of the twelve animals in the Chinese zodiac and one of the five elements. 2024 is the Year of the Wood Dragon, the only mythical creature in the zodiac symbolizing power, strength, and good fortune.
