Dragons are often very self-assured, gifted and natural leaders. In fact they often can loose their tempers when their “orders” are not followed. Full of energy, vibrant and flamboyant are all descriptions often used when describing a dragon.

DRAGONS ARE: Scrupulous, Sentimental, Enthusiastic, Intuitive, Shrewd, Tenacious, Healthy, Influential, Vital, Generous, Spirited, Captivating, Artistic, Admirable, Lucky

These proud souls do not like to be challenged, and their nature is that of ‘unpredictability’. Egotistic, high-profile Dragons are assertive, boisterous, and showy. Successful and popular, this 5th sign of the zodiac produces excellent actors and are born to be in the public eye. Lucky, original enthusiastic, and healthy, the infatuate Dragon needs a strong and intriguing partner, or else they may opt to live a solitary life. The Dragon gathers strength during their own morning hours of 7:00am – 9:00am.

The female dragon is highly attractive to the opposite sex. She is independent, loves to entertain, trendy and most definitely an extrovert.

The Best Love Match: Rat, Monkey and Pig

Dragon and Pig: Excellent complementary marriages. The dragon appreciates the Pig’s support, and the Pig is sympathetic and understanding.

Love Affairs

People born in the Dragon year are passionate, they are often loved and also blind to the faults of their love ones. Women born under the Dragon Sign are often surrounded by admirers demanded in marriage. However, romance often does not last. The needs for constant attention and admiration will spoil their relationships and create a series of highs and lows in their love life. The unsatisfactory love life may lead to a string of loves and marriages. There are also one type of Dragon lovers who fall in love and commit themselves to a long term serious relationship when they are fairly young, while other types could be loners that keep on searching. Dragons need a partner who would admire them and give them room to express, yet not threatened by Dragons’ irritable, stubborn, and independent personality.
