Dragon's personality horoscope
The Dragon has a rich conversation, a strong taste for fashion and an unconditional love for his family, although he also knows how to cope with loneliness when he is confronted with it. A scrupulous observer of his environment, deeply individualistic, the native of the Chinese zodiac sign of the Dragon has a visceral attraction for aesthetics, not hesitating to invest in an art collection as soon as his finances allow it.
Endowed with an undeniable honesty, the judgments of the Dragon are always direct and explicit, because he isn't one to take precautions, diplomacy not being his specialty.
The apparent sincerity of his expressed feelings is due to his strong emotivity, as well as his admirable oratorical skills. However, if this aspect of the character of the Dragon can frequently guarantee him success with his audience, foolproof confidence can however turn against him when this particular trait of his character is overexploited, over-played or misused. Trapped unwillingly in a process of self-destruction, unless he quickly recovers from a flash of lucidity, the Dragon can turn himself in the eyes of all into a raging and authoritarian character, desperately unable to question himself or face reality.
Deeply magnetic and charismatic, the Dragon loves to seduce. He thrives in being seen, applauded and admired. In public, one can very easily notice a Dragon by his eccentric outfits or by an unusual accessory that he proudly displays. Unfortunately, when his charm isn't sufficiently considered by his audience, he can become touchy and sulky. Faced with what the Dragon feels like a lack of recognition, it becomes useless to try to oppose him in serious conversation, or even to try to have the last word with him. Indeed, even in a situation that is commonplace or seemingly casual, you would then risk suffering the burns of his angry flames. In general, it is better to let the Dragon do as it pleases him than to try to compete with him, because he won't let anyone steal the show, unless, magnanimously, he decides otherwise.
Stubborn but persevering, the prestigious native of the Year of the Dragon tends to cling durably to fixed ideas. Fortunately for him, if a project or a situation doesn't turn out in his favor, the Dragon always has inside of him the instant ability to erase it all from his mind. Without any regrets, he then resumes the course of his existence, adorned with his brand new bright ambitions. If you have the chance to meet a Dragon on one of his best days, graceful and splendid, like the phoenix rising from the ashes, he shall gladly let you enjoy his dazzling energy and warm benevolence.
Indeed, it is good to keep in mind that under the thick armor of pride, scales and artifices that covers the Dragon, also hides an intelligent personality, always courageous and sentimental with those he loves.
