Year of the Dragon: 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 as soon as he can to invest in a collection of works of art.
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 over-exploited, 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.

Dragon's 2023 Chinese horoscope
Chinese horoscope of the Dragon during the Year of the Rabbit 2023, in love, work, career, health, luck, studies and travels
According to the 2023 Chinese horoscope of the Dragon, the Lunar New Year conjunctions predict a transitional and eventful year for the Dragon. The general dynamic indicates a succession of inconstant, cyclothymic and sometimes even procedural periods. This year, the Dragon can expect unprecedented developments in most areas of his existence. The efforts of the past will be rewarded in the wake of small tests that he will have to carry out. In 2023, the Rabbit, animal of the year and the fourth sign of the Chinese calendar, provides the Dragon with the means to correct himself and to begin a process of rebirth with a new shell, rid of its cracks and other crevices.
But let us remember it without delay: all the periods marked by calm and silence will be followed by colorful and invigorating episodes. This is why, before beginning the redesign of his own 12-year cycle from the year 2024, the Dragon is called upon to take advantage of the year 2023 to clean up the debris of his past. It is time for him to put away his exuberant coat of scales to better face the reality of the hardships he has managed to circumvent in previous years. Unpleasant but inevitable moments before proceeding with his moult, the Dragon will have, in the course of 2023, and this in spite of the benevolence of the Rabbit, to account for his former vanity and stubbornness.
In accordance with the Chinese horoscope 2023, the Dragon will have to avoid falling into the traps that he has set himself without realizing it. Because in case of inattention, prejudices and unjustified negative considerations will catch up with him to subject him to existential questions. 2023 is the year of the turning point and the year of the last chance for all the Dragons who have been taken aback in the past months. The Water Rabbit (of the year) offers a multitude of paths to take, some with more caution than others. For the Dragon, the Chinese year 2023 will be one of important decisions that will inevitably pass through the filter of reason and humility.
