Dragons Are Charismatic and Appealing!

Personality

Ambitious, enterprising and independent-natured, Dragons, enjoying challenges, are willing to take risks to achieve their goals. Full of enthusiasm and passion, Dragons are also usually colourful, charismatic figures who are attractive to others.

Dragons’ self-sufficiency can sometimes be interpreted as arrogance and conceit. Determination to ‘do their own thing’ plus a certain degree of impatience, sometimes makes Dragons appear tactless, abrupt or even meddlesome to others.

Ideal Dragon Careers and Occupations Include:

Management, Sales, Advertising, Law, Films, Photography, Systems Analysis, Journalism, Architecture, Art, Cinema, Engineering, Politics and Public Relations.

Relationships

In relationship terms, Dragons are most compatible with those born under the Signs of the Monkey and Rat and least compatible with Oxen and Goats.

Dragon Details

Myth or Man (or Woman)? Associated with the Chinese Emperor himself, the Dragon has always symbolised strength and dominance. A symbol of good fortune, beneficial ‘Sheng Qi’, Wealth, Power and Authority, the noble Eastern Dragon is regarded as auspicious-having strong links to heavenly activities in Oriental Philosophy. The Western Monstrous variety springs from ancient superstition, hence its Gothic wings, smoke and flames.

Dragon in Dragon Year

This should be a good year for Dragons overall, especially if arguments are avoided. Control your money-making urges and good prospects should manifest on the career and financial fronts.

Spring and Autumn are your best times this year-your Summer may prove disappointing. December requires extra vigilance regarding your home and possessions.

The Chinese Calendar and Zodiac

The Yellow Emperor, Huang Di (circa 2,690-2,590 BC) is credited with creation of the Chinese Calendar in its current form, although it is certain it was in use long before this. Yin/Yang and 5 Elements Theories, fundamentally affecting the way his Calendar operates are also credited to the Yellow Emperor and exert powerful influences on events to this day.

Dragon Year 2012-13 is Year 4,710 by this Calendar, which is also used by many other countries of S. E. Asia. The Chinese who also (not surprisingly) invented History as a Subject for study, have the longest written and consistent, chronological record of events on the Planet (one from which we can learn lots!).

About Dragon Mystic

I fell in love with dragons when I read Tea With the Black Dragon, and never looked back. Not the clunky winged Medieval dragons that ate cows, the graceful Asian dragons that could fly without wings. Later I discovered the elegant Welsh dragons, red and white, as described by R.J. Stewart in his books on the historical Merlin.
