People born in the Year of the Dragon are healthy, energetic, excitable, short-tempered, and stubborn.
They are also honest, sensitive, brave, and they inspire confidence and trust. 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 softhearted which sometimes gives others an advantage over them.
They are compatible with Rats, Snakes, Monkeys, and Roosters. You are full of life and enthusiasm. You are popular and “fun-loving.” You will make a good artist, priest or politician.
Beware if you calculate your Chinese Zodiac sign yourself because our Western calendar does not exactly match up exactly with the lunar calendar and your birthday could be off by as much as two months if you aren’t careful. Here’s an excellent chart you can use for divining: http://funalliance.com/info/zodiac-by-date.htm
When I originally looked at Chinese Zodiac sites based on year alone I was a Snake. When I then checked the precise date of my birth against the precise changes between Eastern signs, I was really a Dragon by a few days. I learned I am a “Wood Dragon” as well:
Wood has a modifying influence and brings creativity to this sign. Questioning and liberal, Wood Dragons enjoy talking about original ideas and are open to other points of view. They are innovative, imaginative practical and appreciate art in each of its forms.
Generally less pretentious than other Dragons, Wood Dragons have an ability to get along with other people. They have the essentials to build a prosperous and happy life for themselves. Still, Wood Dragons are outspoken and at times a bit pushy to quell everyone, even in the most friendly quarrel.
I was also delighted to learn my color preference: Greenish-Blue And as an Aquarian/Dragon I am:
Impractical and atypical, these Dragons are intrigued by the shock of the new. Most importantly, they are intellectuals, very individualistic and original, born ahead of their time. Receptive and open-minded, they are held in high regard by all.
Now I wonder what a Greenish-Blue/Wood/Aquarian/Dragon with Four Fours means in the universal? Perhaps I am really the Four Claw Dragon of Death?
