Turquoise water dragon will be the year of 2012 - it will be a "Yang" Water Dragon (not Yin) - starts January 23, 2012, and ends February 9, 2013, according to the lunar calendar (Tibetan calendar will be one month later this year).
Since it is a yang water dragon, it is full of possibilities - it can go any where in a positive sense. It has no bounds. How nice to welcome the Water Dragon!
