Water Dragon's Chinese calendar (1952, 2012)
If you were born in 1952 or 2012, the annual pillar of the Water Dragon corresponds to your main Chinese zodiac sign.
Let us remember in preamble that the Chinese lunisolar calendar being based on the lunar cycles, the dates of the Year of the Water Dragon are different from a year of the Gregorian calendar (see below the exact dates of the Water Dragon Years).
In Chinese astrology, your date of birth can be broken down into four pillars of destiny (四柱 命理 学) or Ba-Zi (八字). Each pillar of destiny is associated with an animal and a Chinese element and corresponds to one of the periods of your birth (year, month, day and hour). If you were born at a Dragon Hour, a Water Dragon Day or during a Water Dragon Month, each of these periods also corresponds to a pillar of destiny. The four pillars of the Water Dragon share the same imaged destiny, which you can discover further down the page.
Furthermore, if your year of birth is 1952 or 2012 and the Water Dragon is therefore your 1st pillar of destiny (your main Chinese zodiac sign, which is the one corresponding to your personality and your relationship to the world and with others), then all Water Dragon Days and Months, as well as the Chinese Hour of the Dragon, are lucky times for you.
Find below the list of the annual and monthly dates of the Water Dragon's Chinese calendar, as well as the hours ruled by the Dragon. Then discover the personality and characteristics of the Water Dragon, his lucky talismans (color, number, stone, fragrance), his Chinese birth chart (energy composition) and his love compatibility with the 12 animal signs of Chinese astrology.
