Are you a Dragon in Chinese astrology?
I am.

1988 - Earth Dragon.

I was reading a new book @ Barnes & Noble recently - Dragon 09. July-August is supposed to be the luckiest period in 2009 for us Dragons. Specifically in finance, business, income.

Chinese astrology in some ways is more accurate in my opinion and personally from experience.

I'm already noticing the luck in my life recently. It's pretty fascinating.

So, any other fellow Dragons out there? Earth, Fire, etc?

The Dragon ( 龍 ) is the only mythical creature in the Chinese zodiac. In China, dragons are associated with strength, health, harmony, and good luck; they are placed above doors or on the tops of roofs to banish demons and evil spirits. The Year of the Dragon is associated with the earthly branch symbol 辰.

* 8 February 1940 - 26 January 1941: Metal Dragon
* 27 January 1952 - 13 February 1953: Water Dragon
* 13 February 1964 - 1 February 1965: Wood Dragon
* 31 January 1976 - 17 February 1977: Fire Dragon
* 17 February 1988 - 5 February 1989: Earth Dragon
* 5 February 2000 - 23 January 2001: Metal Dragon
* 2012 - 2013: Water Dragon
* 2024 - 2025: Wood Dragon

Re: Are you a Dragon in Chinese astrology?
I did a reply but it didn't show up.....

Briefly....

Dragon very auspicous year.... Many children born that year, as parents want year of the Dragon baby, that hospitals and schools find it hard to cope with influx.

Same thing happened in year of the pig in 2007. Many believed it was year of the Golden Pig that only comes around every 600 years.

Hahaha.

You will have to be open to all opportunities coming your way especially beginning in July.

Be confident and ready to take up ANYTHING. Also, our investment skills will be increased in 2009. So, if you want to invest in something... like the stock market, or anything else... jump on it!

That is exactly how I will fund a lot of the things I have planned business-wise. Stocks! Also thanks to this recession, stocks are cheap and worth buying and holding for a good period of time (not all of course).

Make sure you Dragons protect the Southeast corner of your bedroom or work area. Keep in mind, I got all this info from that book I was reading. I consider it pretty accurate.

Only the beginning for me. I feel my luck will increase as time goes by, but nothing spectacular just yet.

But I've suffered ENOUGH for the past few years... so I feel it's the just time for my life to be fortunate.

Financially, it's still pretty stressful... but a lot has suddenly changed for me - in the right direction.

Really looking forward to July.

I'm also a Leo [August] so a lot of action awaits. ^___^

Re: Are you a Dragon in Chinese astrology?
Year of the Dragon - Personality Traits:

The Dragon person is self confident and impulsive and consequently does not always listen to the advice of others. He is also a perfectionist and he sets high standards for himself. Although strong and decisive the Dragon is not manipulative or sly. He refuses to deceive or compromise and fails to spot subversive intent. He enjoys being in command and like an emperor holding court he eliminates obstacles until success is his.

WOOD DRAGON:
The Wood Dragon is creative, imaginative, and inquisitive. He is both a thinker and a doer and is capable of brilliant new concepts. His every move is guided by sound logic. His drive and ambition allow him to put many of his ideas into practice, nevertheless this Dragon is capable of concealing his domination and tries not to offend. He will even compromise if it is advantages. Although not as self-centered as other Dragons, he is still outspoken and fearless when challenged.

FIRE DRAGON:
The Fire Dragon is the most extroverted and competitive Dragon. He tends to push too hard and expects a lot from everyone. His criticisms are objective and he has the ability to arouse massive popular support. His insatiable ambition can make him short-tempered and intolerant. He is an empire builder who needs to master his less favorable traits and learn how to communicate more humbly with people as individuals.

EARTH DRAGON: The Earth Dragon is a quieter, more reflective Dragon, He will be appreciative of other's opinions even if he fails to agree with them. He is reasonable in his approach to problems and his leadership is less dictatorial. He is not given to outbursts of temper, but at the same time demands respect. He knows the value of cooperation and is more diplomatic than the other Dragons. He is ambitious, but his initiatives are less hurried and more carefully thought out.

METAL DRAGON: The Metal Dragon is the most strong-willed Dragon. He is inflexible, unbending and combative. He gives little regard to the feelings of others. This ruthlessness can result in a rapid rise to a position of authority, but often at the cost of destroying important relationships. It is futile to attempt to convince him that certain things are simply undoable. He will go it alone if he can't gain support. He succeeds because he refuses to accept failure.

WATER DRAGON: The Water Dragon is less selfish and opinionated than the other Dragons. He is more inhibited and less power-hungry. He can accept defeat without recriminations. He makes a good negotiator as he knows when, where, and how to apply pressure. He has a tendency to be over-optimistic and needs to learn how to relinquish what is unfeasible so that he can concentrate his energies on the most rewarding endeavors.
