Born in the Year of the Dragon

Born in the Year of the Dragon

The Dragon is bursting with good health and vitality. Straight as a die, direct, he is incapable of meanness, hypocrisy, scandal mongering – and the most elementary form of tact or diplomacy! Although he is hardly an innocent like the Pig, he has the courage of his convictions and can easily be made to mistake a sow’s ear for a silk purse.

The Dragon often gets himself into a state – for the worst of reasons. He is an idealist, a perfectionist. And his refusal to put up with anything but the best makes him ask too much of himself and of others. He demands a lot but he gives a lot too.

Irritable and stubborn, the dragon is a real bigmouth and his words often outrun his thoughts: his heart runs away with his head. Nevertheless, however crudely expressed, his opinions are worth listening to and his advice is always good. People do in fact listen to him and his influence is considerable.

The dragon is over proud. He is enthusiastic to the point of impetuosity, and he loses his temper easily. He is gifted, intelligent, tenacious, willing, and generous. He can do anything. And whatever he does do, he will do it well: as long as he lives, he will never be in need.

No matter whether the Dragon chooses an artistic career or a religious, military, medical, or political one, he’s going to shine in it. He will be a success wherever he goes. He may devote himself to a great cause or a great work. Whichever it is, he’ll see it through to the end. Unfortunately, though, this talent works two ways: he can be equally devoted to a bad cause – and equally successful in it. The Dragon just can’t help winning.

He is often loved, but he himself loves rarely. He is never worried by amorous complications and never disappointed in love. It is he, on the contrary, who is frequently

the cause of some drama of despair. The women of this sign are surrounded by admirers and often demanded in marriage.

Dragons are not prone to marry young; some of them in fact stay bachelors all their lives, for they are entirely self-sufficient and have the tastes of the solitary. To tell the truth, they are happier alone.
