Last week I think I almost had a nervous break down.
Well as close to a break down as I get.
I've been emotional and boarder line unhinged.
And despite not believing in Chinese Astrology, I have decided to blame it on the year of the Dragon.
Yup that's right this Bunny Rabbit is blaming all her turmoil and indecision on the Dragon!!!!
It may not be the mature thing to do but for some reason having something to blame for my stressful week has actually made me cope more effectively.
Let me explain....I am facing a number of milestones and important decisions about my life, love and possibly my career. Normally I am pretty good at this stuff. Okay eventually I'm pretty good at this stuff. Its possible that I just think I am good at making decisions. I tend to freak out for a bit but then I can reason out what is the best decisions for me. But this time around instead of one decision to make I have several. Seemingly all at once. This has not been sitting well with me my mind keeps bouncing all over the place and I cant stay on tract let alone think rationally.
But for some reason knowing that its the Year of the Dragon and that the Dragon brings some turmoil for us timid rabbits (I'm not sure anyone would really call me timid) makes me feel better and I am able to take a deep breathe, calm the hell down and start taking some action instead of just reacting to every situation.
I told you its not the mature thing to do but I never claimed to be all that mature.
I'm sure over the next few weeks I will share everything with you but for now know that I am slowly figuring it out.
For all you other bunnies out there this is what you can "expect".
True, the Dragon's pace isn't as comfortable as that of the Rabbit. And yes, this year could be a bit more challenging for you than the last one. But come on, you're looking at seven favorable months! You'll have plenty of opportunities to do what you want and go where you like -- and be successful while you're at it. For now, it's all about timing. Pick your spots, plan celebrations, make big trips and start new projects during your favorable months. And when the unfavorable ones roll around, head for the comfort of your Rabbit hole, where you can avoid risk, spend time with the people you trust the most, and be comfortable with the old while waiting to start the new.
Oh boy. The Dragon is always tempting everyone to make big changes and take huge leaps ... but this really isn't the time for you to follow in his footsteps. Things will shift and change a whole lot in 2012, so your job will be to find steady ground and hang on for dear life. Stay within your areas of expertise. Do what you're good at and what will generate the most money. Don't implement any big business ideas or career moves just yet; if you insist on doing so, wait until your lucky months to make changes. Persistent effort should pay off.
Are you on edge about your love life? Indeed, Dragon years have that type of effect. For you, the Dragon's passion and impulsiveness are a little unnerving, as you prefer when people are calm and act rationally. Luckily, Water gives relationships a boost by helping with communication. The good news is the Dragon favors marriage and celebrations. Do you hear wedding bells? This could be your year to take the big leap into love. If you're single, 2012 could be a roller coaster of interesting dates and several different relationships. Be cautious about professing your love right away -- the Dragon loves passion, but it can be fleeting. Hang on tightly and try to enjoy the ride!
It's possible your nervous tendencies could be heightened this year, so make sure you take care of yourself and your mental state. The Dragon's devil-may-care attitude probably makes you quiver; you can also expect others to act slightly crazy and unpredictable. Make time for quiet introspection and ensure your home is a place of refuge. If you have the energy, take up a high-intensity activity such as Bikram yoga or marathon-running. Channel nervous energy into healthy outlets, and keep an eye on your nutrition. After all, the Dragon tends to overdo it and indulge.
You probably don't need any warnings about your finances -- after all, you certainly have a way with money. If you can remain savvy about your finances, you might even do well this year -- that is, if you're able to avoid the Dragon's influence for big risks and impulsive purchases. It could be tempting to make costly home upgrades or book an expensive vacation. Use your lucky months for any necessary big spending, but don't go crazy with it.
