At any social gathering, you know a Dragon has entered the room as the air starts to tingle with the energy they exude. Enthusiastic, and confident sometimes to the point of swaggering, Dragon people inspire confidence in others with their honesty and quick wit.
Natural “movers and shakers”, Dragons can sometimes be overbearing to lesser mortals who do not share the their natural self-perception as absolute rulers of all they survey. However, their great popularity stems from a soft and sensitive heart, which the Dragon only reveals to trusted friends and loved ones who delight in their tender concern.
Not shy in the least about going after what they want, Dragons can be their own worst enemies. Aggressive to the point of tyrannical, they may sometimes be heard running off at the mouth without thinking.
However, after having made a foolhardy decision, Dragon people often recover quickly and continue to follow their hearts’ desire with dauntless determination.
Gifted with innate courage, tenacity and intelligence, those born under this sign are most often a shining success at whatever field they choose.

Dragon people are the most eccentric of any in the eastern zodiac. They neither borrow money nor make flowery speeches, but they tend to be soft-hearted which sometimes gives others an advantage over them. They are compatible with Rats, Snakes, Monkeys, and Roosters Full of vitality and enthusiasm, the Dragon is a popular individual even with the reputation of being foolhardy and a “big mouth” at times. You are intelligent, gifted, and a perfectionist but these qualities make you unduly demanding on others. You would be well-suited to be an artist, priest, or politician. Dragon people are balls of fire! They are full of vitality and love of life. Always on the run, they drag their faithful band of admirers behind them. Dragons are egotistical, eccentric, demanding, and giving.
Dragons are proud, direct, and loaded with high ideals which they always try to live up to. Having a zeal for life, they want to live it on a grand scale. They have the potential for accomplishing many great things as long as they don’t get too far ahead of themselves. When dragons do something, good or bad, you can be certain their deeds do not go unnoticed! Dragons are always making the news.
It is next to impossible to win an argument with Dragon people. They intimidate anyone who challenges them. Once you arouse their anger, they keep after you for a very long time. Dragons are extremely loyal to friends and family. When really needed, they always come to the rescue. They are the first ones to say “I told you so”. In spite of being overly emotional, a Dragon is not sentimental or even romantic. They will just take it for granted that everyone loves them. Although they are stubborn and irrational, they are not petty or begrudging with their favors. It is hard for them to hide their feelings. They don’t even try.
Not being secretive themselves, they can’t be expected to keep a confidence for long; but Dragons speak from the heart and are always sincere. Their manners may seem brusque and too direct, but they merely want to get things moving. Being creatures of action, they motivate others, too. They often get into rushes and fail to see the flaws in a situation. Instead of diving in, Dragons need to learn to check things out better. Dragons need purpose in their lives, causes to fight for, and goals to reach. An uninvolved Dragon is a sad sight indeed.
Dragons consider themselves very strong. They will often bite off more than they can chew. When this happens, they are too proud to ask for help and exhaust themselves. Dragons can do many things well. They may be artists, politicians, doctors, or ministers. When Dragons choose the right profession, they will be successful and devoted. They just can’t help winning!
In romance, Dragons are seldom the losers and are usually the ones breaking hearts. Dragons don’t marry too young, and many are content and happier living alone. Dragons will always have more than their share of friends and admirers to keep them company. Dragons are really softies and fall apart if they lose their supporters. They dazzle as long as there is someone who believes in them.
Above all else the Dragon is a visionary with grandiose goals. They tend to boldly confront the mightiest obstacles and accept challenges that seem beyond the reach of others. They are not only decisive but, having made a decision, tenaciously hold onto the idea, moving heaven and earth if necessary, to fulfill their dreams. They are often flamboyant and even occasionally come across as strikingly or mysteriously different or unusual. This can be caused in part by their stylish dress and, or, their high energy level. They may also have natural leadership ability along with this talent for attracting attention. They take pride in themselves and their confidence. It is unlikely people will say they lack self-confidence.
Unfortunately, there are times the Dragon never gets beyond being a dreamer. Perhaps their big dreams are too impractical and they are just being fanciful. At times they might appear to people as a strange eccentric or just someone who is all talk and no action. They sure can be unpredictable, and we can never know whether theirs is the next great idea or just some crackpot scheme.
The Dragon In Relationships
What they see is what they get. They tend to be very direct and to let people know how they feel and what they expect of them. In their search for the ideal partner, they might find themselves often hesitating to move forward in a relationship and, or, unwilling to make a permanent commitment. When they do, however, it is their intention for it to last.
There are times when it is hard to live with them. It is not unusual for them to have an excessively high opinion of themselves. This can grate on the rest of us in those moments when it is obvious to us they are superficial and their behavior tactless. And, occasionally, they can be insensitive and offensive in their speech and mannerisms. This is normally not intended but probably a consequence of their being wrapped up in their own thoughts rather than paying attention to our needs. In spite of these tendencies, they are likely to also have a warm, giving personality overall. They can be very generous to their loved ones. Also, that wonderful Dragon dynamism and infectious optimism is likely to keep them in good stead even when their behavior is not the best.
