What animal is the symbol of 2024 in the Chinese calendar: how to welcome it and what will bring good luck
Days pass incredibly quickly: it seemed that just recently we welcomed the year of the Black Water Rabbit, and on the threshold of 2024, we find the Green Wood Dragon as the symbol. It symbolizes strength, energy, and courage.
According to the Eastern calendar, the new year may bring certain challenges, but the Dragon always finds the strength to overcome all difficulties. It is the strongest and bravest sign of the Chinese horoscope.
The Dragon is the symbol of 2024
In many mythologies, dragons are considered quite dangerous creatures. However, Chinese astrologers advise not to fear the symbol of the new year. The dragon represents strength, endurance, courage, and at the same time, cunning and flexibility.
In the new year, astrologers recommend avoiding frivolous relationships and insincere people. Of course, it may not be possible to completely avoid disappointments, but it is worth focusing on self-development and self-improvement instead of wasting time on unnecessary quarrels.
What colors will bring good luck
All shades of green are appropriate. Green is the color of nature in bloom, a burst of energy, renewal, and rebirth. In many cultures, green is the color of longevity, prosperity, and the beginning of a new life.
When is the Year of the Green Dragon
As you may know, the new year in the countries of Southeast Asia arrives later than on the generally accepted Gregorian calendar. Therefore, officially, the Year of the Green Wood Dragon will not commence on the night from December 31 to January 1. The year of the Dragon will begin on February 10, 2024, and its influence will end on January 28, 2025.
How to celebrate the Year of the Dragon
The Dragon is an energetic and active being; it dislikes routine and ordinariness. Astrologers advise careful preparation for the holiday. However, it's not about a lavish feast but the right emotional state. Even if you will be welcoming the new year alone, try to find positivity in every moment. The main thing is to set aside sad thoughts, not get bored, and look forward to the coming year.
If you decide to host a holiday party, it's better to decorate the house or other premises with bright colors. Add more colors by buying colorful garlands and shiny ornaments. You can hang wooden toys on the Christmas tree. It's better to prepare a wooden dragon figurine in advance.
Regarding treats, the dragon prefers simplicity. You should put fresh herbs, cereal dishes, and apples on the table.
When choosing outfits, pay attention to bright accessories: shiny brooches, necklaces, beads, earrings, and so on.
