Wood Dragon ~ January Candle Club ~ Flavia Cardoso 🐉
She has a heart of a dragon,
And eyes like the moon.
She’s a mermaid at sunrise,
And a wolf by noon.
The universe is her lover,
And chaos her tune.
~ L.L. llmusings
2024 is the year of the Wood Dragon.
Represented by the mythical — and the most powerful — creature of the 12-animal Chinese zodiac, the Year of the Dragon is considered special. The Dragon is a symbol of power and a conduit of mysticism across many cultures.
In central Mexican traditions, Quetzalcoatl (feathered serpent) is a creature that symbolizes spiritual enlightenment. This dragon like guide encourages us to be very aware in our power and decisions that are connected to our earth energy and the divine.
Wood is the most human of the elements. It is the element of spring; the creative urge to achieve. It is associated with making decisions and expansion.
