The Dragon is a creature of myth & legend. A symbol of good fortune & sign of intense power, the Oriental Dragon is regarded as a divine beast - the reverse of the malicious monster that Westerners felt necessary to find & slay. In Eastern philosophy, the Dragon is said to be a deliverer of good fortune & a master of authority. Therefore, those people born in Dragon years are to be honored & respected. The key to the Dragon personality is that Dragons are the free spirits of the Zodiac. Conformation is a Dragon's curse. Rules & regulations are made for other people. Restrictions blow out the creative spark that is ready to flame into life. Dragons must be free & uninhibited. The Dragon is a beautiful creature, colorful & flamboyant. Often found to be Over-the-Top, the Dragon loves to be center of attention & loves all things rich & expressive, luxurious & fanciful. Most often Dragons are of natural beauty & pose, commanding attention with a natural grace that only a dragon has. An extroverted bundle of energy, gifted & utterly irrepressible, everything Dragons do is on a grand scale - big ideas, ornate gestures, extreme ambitions. However, this behavior is natural & isn't meant for show. Because they are confident, fearless in the face of challenge, they are almost inevitably successful. Dragons usually make it to the top. However, Dragon people be aware of their natures. Too much enthusiasm can leave them tired & unfulfilled. Even though they are willing to aid when necessary, their pride can often impede them from accepting the same kind of help from others. Dragons' generous personalities give them the ability to attract friends, but they can be rather solitary people at heart. A Dragon's self-sufficiency can mean that he or she has no need for close bonds with other people.
THE FIRE DRAGON - 1976
The Fire Dragon is a powerful force to be reckoned with. This is a Dragon doubled! The Fire Dragon can move from calm & collected to combustible in a matter of seconds.

Becoming an inspiration, guild, father figure, & mentor to all, a truly kind & wise dragon.
The Excitable Piscean Dragon Personality:
The introduction of the mystical fiery Dragon to a person's Western astrological sun sign is a lucky occurrence. In Chinese Astrology with the Piscean it adds to the already typical highly sensitive emotions & appears to reform them as inspirational rather than reactive. The usual over sensitive Piscean Dragon is still highly emotional but these emotions are directed differently. They are more geared towards inventive & imaginative ideas rather than the intuition of feelings. A Piscean Dragon personality is therefore an excitable person with a generally fairly equal balance of seriousness & sensitivity. A Piscean Dragon likes to be surrounded by those they trust. They are not particularly sociable but do understand the attractions & benefits of a few friends & a soul mate to share life with. The Piscean Dragon is never short of something to do as their active mind is always buzzing with new concepts & creative thoughts. These Piscean's with their inspired thinking processes like to keep busy but are sometimes caught day dreaming. In work they do not enjoy tasks involving monotony as this is far too restrictive for their personalities. Piscean Dragon's, even with their more balanced emotions, are still very easily upset. They can become highly strung & temperamental when confronted with situations they find upsetting. A relationship with a Piscean Dragon will often involve lots of affection & openness. They tend to rely heavily on partners for their emotional support when it falters & need unions with understanding & trustworthy people. Dragon's love to be praised & dote upon, the more praise they get, the better in life they do, often leading them down the road toward the performance arts where the applause drives them.
