Chinese New Year 2012 – Understanding the Dragon Personality

The Dragon is magnificent. He is flamboyant, attractive and full of vitality and strength. In China the Dragon is the imperial symbol, the sign of the emperor, or the male element Yang. It is also the symbol of power and wealth.

People born in the Year of the Dragon have a natural charisma and are gifted with power and luck. It is unlikely for them to leave a party unnoticed or to take a second place in a competition. The Dragon person has an active mind and shows an unfeigned interest in the world around him/her. This person is also self-confident enough to know how to create a necessary impression and like to do everything on a grand scale.
They are egoistical and ambitious, and will stop at nothing to get what they want. A person born in this year wears the crown of destiny, and is capable of great achievements. While these people enjoy being the centre of attention, they also have a brave and charitable side. If a Dragon’s friend faces a problem or dilemma he/she will be there to offer help, and when others leave the field of battle the Dragon person makes a step forward to solve the problem with authority and dignity. These people have high standards for themselves as well as for other people and are surprised when others cannot cope with a task.
The Chinese believe that there is a balance between heaven and earth in the life of people born in the year of the dragon, and successful follows them everywhere. Along with a good fortune, these people are also good organizers, who can step 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. No one can find a more devoted, open-hearted friend than this personality type. His/her vibrant, positive attitude is irreplaceable to have around and one can always count on him/her to support his/her friends unequivocally in times of need.
