 Personality

 The Dragon is one of the most powerful signs in the Chinese Zodiac. Lucky as well. Dragons are giving, intelligent, tenacious and know exactly what they want and are determined to get it. They have a natural charisma and it is unlikely that they would fade into the background or escape unnoticed at a party. They are lively company, interested in the world around they and excited by new possibilities. Further, they can easily influence their peers and often find themselves the centre of attention in social situations. As if all this wasn't enough, Lady Love is the Dragon's best friend. The rest of the Dragon's friends are always keen to hear what their Dragon pal has to say, and when it comes to dispensing advice, the Dragon is the best one to do it.

Dragon have great energy and self-confidence and know how to create an impression. Many dragon people are exhibitionists, full of energy and enthusiasm; they are also proud, which is sometimes interpreted by onlookers as arrogance. It is true that they are sure of themselves and enjoy being the center of attention, but they also have a brave and charitable side to their character. If a friend is faced by a problem or dilemma they sill be there to offer help, and when others might withdraw they will step forward to help resole the situation with authority and dignity. In fact, they apply themselves whole-heartedly to most situations and if they become frustrated with others it is only because they do not have their stamina or skills. They demand high standards of themselves and are surprised when others cannot keep up with they; in their drive to complete the task they fail to see their weaknesses.

It's ego that can get the Dragon into trouble, but even so, this larger-than-life creature has an ability for initiating projects and keeping everyone motivated. According to Dragons, it's their natural born right to lead the way. As luck would have it, Dragons are likely to achieve considerable material wealth during their lifetime, although they aren't motivated by the pursuit of money. That said, Dragons are quite the opportunists, forever searching for ways in which to consolidate their considerable power. And power it must be, for a weakened Dragon is a sad sight, a creature that refuses to take defeat with even a modicum of grace. Question authority? That's what the Dragon does best!

 

The role of leader is the only one the Dragon wants, a better position to give orders and be king of the hill. They are good leaders, too, knowing instinctively what needs to be done to succeed. The Chinese say that heaven and earth are balanced in the life of someone born in the year of the dragon, and success certainly seems to follow they. They are decisive and frank, capable and also lucky. As well as being blessed with good fortune, they are also an able judge of situations, stepping in at the right moment with an exciting or creative scheme. They can be quick-tempered and obstinate, and sometimes too outspoken, but there is usually good advice in their criticisms or suggestions. They believe that they are acting with good intentions and are confident of a positive outcome, and more often than not events work out as they hoped.

Crossing the Dragon is never a good idea -- the Dragon's flame can burn! A valuable life lesson for this clever creature would be to absorb the principles of flexibility, compassion and tolerance. Being high and mighty can serve to inspire others, but it also keeps Dragons from living their life to the fullest. If Dragons can learn to balance their quest for results with an appreciation for the little things, their life will be more than worthwhile.

The most compatible match for a Dragon is a Monkey or Rat.

 

 

 Career  

Dragon  enjoy positions of responsibility and their presence does command attention. They know how to gain respect, and being in charge or giving orders comes naturally; fortunately, most people accept their authority. It is important for they to have new challenges and freedom of movement; when they feel trapped by their career or at the mercy of other people's decisions they are likely to pack their bags and leave.

They are an able and intelligent worker and have strong opinions on the planning and execution of projects. If there is room for doubt hold back, seek advice or wait until they are certain that the conditions are right. They have good leadings, but their energy can be overwhelming. In their planning they have to allow for the fact that some colleagues cannot match their pace, even though they may be inspired by their ideas.

They are suited to a career in law, religion or the arts. They would also be a good manager, entrepreneur, doctor or actor. 

 Relationship

 

Dragon signs have an impressive presence and it is not unusual for they to have a string of admirers who are drawn by their charisma. 

They are attractive and know how to charm, so before long their partner will be under their spell. It is easy for they for find romance, but hard for they to settle down - numerous love affairs are not uncommon for those born in the Year of the Dragon. Dragon signs do not set out to conquer someone romantically and then leave them for a new challenge, it is just that they are disappointed when they uncover weakness. They are frustrated by emotional over-dependence or indecision, and will eventually set off in search of a new and exciting romance.

 

At one level love is a game, and Dragon signs rarely yearn for the past or harbor regrets. The same cannot be said for their ex-lovers who may carry a torch for they long after the romance is over. They need someone who gives they the space to express themselves - to impress and to perform - someone who plays and active role but yet is not threatened by their exuberance.
