Chinese Year Of The Dragon

Dragons are popular people with enthusiasm and vitality. They love perfection and are intelligent, but to some they may appear foolhardy. Dragons enjoy attention and enjoy a challenge, living life to the full. They are often prevented from asking for help by their pride and self-confidence. Although Dragons can go through life without close relationships they are more alive when in a relationship with someone on the same wavelength. A Dragon is adaptable, enthusiastic, original, passionate, resourceful, self-assured and valiant, but at the same time can be arrogant, critical, discourteous, hot-headed, irritable and unpredictable.

Dragons make good advertising agents, architects, computer analyst, brokers, engineers, inventors, lawyers, managers, psychoanalysts, politicians, philosophers and sales people.

Famous people born in the Chinese year of the Dragon are Al Pacino, Bruce Lee, Courteney Cox, Fats Domino, Florence Nightingale, Joan D'Arc (of Arc), Keanu Reeves, Mae West, Martin Sheen, Orlando Bloom, Pele, Salvador Dali, Sarah Bernhardt and Sigmund Freud.
