The Dragon may feel like it's trying to sprint through quicksand in the Year of the Metal Rabbit. The daring and dynamism of the Dragon doesn't mix well with the quiet, contemplative energy of a Rabbit year. Still, there are opportunities ahead for the Dragon. Instead of making bold leaps, this creature should pause to enjoy simple pleasures like good food, loving friends and beautiful vistas. A spiritual practice like meditation, yoga or guided imagery can help the Dragon maximize the potential of a Rabbit year.
Accidents can be a problem in the Year of the Metal Rabbit, so Dragons are better off avoiding extreme sports and risky behavior. When it comes to physical intimate relationships, Dragons should take added precautions to prevent disease and unplanned pregnancies. Forewarned is forearmed! Defensive driving is also critical for Dragons in 2011. Slow down, look both ways and make sure your vehicles are in good operating order.
Travel opportunities abound for Dragons in 2011. Taking a fun family vacation is favored. Spending long, leisurely hours with the kids will strengthen those ties that bind. Single Dragons should think about hosting a big family reunion, if only to reconnect with relatives from both near and far. Elderly relatives can be especially helpful to Dragons throughout the Year of the Metal Rabbit, providing both emotional and financial assistance.
Being more attentive to others can be the Dragon's greatest challenge this year. Normally, Dragons refuse to look to anyone else for approval. The Year of the Metal Rabbit can change all that, when the Dragon realizes just how intimately their fate is tied to that of their friends, neighbors and colleagues.
