Love

Joy dwells in your heart. The world is an open book waiting for your to read it. But love is a two way street, so allow the traffic to flow around you like a mother whispering to her infant.

Peace

Peace

(pronounced ān (aan))

Like lilies floating in a pond on a beautiful summer afternoon, you are content with the universe around you. Nurture and balance your sense of serenity by reciprocating it.

Dragon

Dragon

(Pronounced: xīng (sīng))

With a fire in your belly, you tackle this world's weary tasks and joyous ones with equal abandon. Be careful, though, as the spark from your words can carry warmth but also disaster.

Luck

Luck

(pronounced: jīngshén (jiyung-shuen))

Fortune is a babbling brook flowing all around you. It's fine to let some of it rub off on others, as long as you don't let them divert your flow for selfish means.

Moon

Moon

(pronounced: yuè (yue-ah))

Often walking around with your head in the clouds, you watch over those around you. In order to keep yourself humble, though, make sure to walk with the tides.
