Chinese New Year
2024 - The year of the Dragon

THE DRAGON
2024, 2012, 2000, 1988, 1976, 1964, 1952


10th of February

The only mythological creature in the Chinese zodiac, the dragon epitomises the yang (male/warm) energy. Those with the dragon as their animal sign are lively people who are straight to the point, proud, full of enthusiasm and have great passion for life. They are dynamic and stand out in a crowd as they are flamboyant and tend to leave a blazing trail behind them, igniting passion in some, but also scorching others who fall to ride the wave with them. Dragons are also profoundly loyal to family and friends and think nothing of laying their lives down to protect their brood. Although sincere and honest, dragons are known to act first, think later, and suffer in leisure.
They can never keep their mouths shut, indulge in idle gossip and tend to believe they can take on just about anything. They can be eccentric and egotistical, demanding others to laugh at their jokes or laud that their actions. Intelligent and charismatic, but the dragon seldom applies its wisdom carefully and chooses to flirt with imagined grandeur instead.

There are five types of Dragons, each with different characteristics:  

Type of Dragon Year of Birth Characteristics
     
Wood Dragon 1904, 1964 Introverted, less enthusiastic, and lacking in good relationships
Fire Dragon 1916, 1976 Smart, unreliable, and easygoing
Earth Dragon 1928, 1988 Smart, ambitious, and hardworking
Gold Dragon 1940, 2000 Natural and straightforward, unpredictable with continually changing emotions
Water Dragon 1952, 2012 Persevering, farsighted, and vigorous

Famous people born in the Year Of The Dragon:

Health: Taking the hardworking nature of dragons into consideration, they are healthy in general. They may be stressed and suffer from periodic tension, for they like to embrace challenges and take risks. Old people born in a Chinese zodiac dragon year should pay more attention to liver and gall, blood, intestines and stomach, while the middle-aged and young people should care more about their skins. Yoga or taking a walk would be an effective way to keep healthy, as these activities can be good for their minds as well as their bodies.

Career: Dragons like to embrace challenges and take risks. Jobs that allow them to test themselves are good choices. Some good careers include: film producer, director, broker, priest, journalist, teacher, inventor, manager, computer analyst, lawyer, engineer, architect, and sales person.

The Best Love Match:    

Rat, Monkey and Pig
   
  Dragon and Rat: Best match in the Chinese Zodiac. Both are ambitious and adventurous. While the Rat will welcome the Dragon's dominance, the Dragon will admire the Rat's intelligence.
   
 

Dragon and Monkey: This is an exciting union. While the Dragon appreciates the Monkey's ingenuity, the Monkey admires the Dragon's courage and strength. It is worth to remember that the Monkey is the only Sign that can fool the Dragon.

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

Words of Caution:    

The Dragon tends to have frequent conflicts with the Dog. Both have strong and unyielding characters that happen to be hard to relate to each other. The Dragon is too proud to accept the Dog's caustic comments and critical approach. The righteous Dog will not give up and compromised.

The date of the Chinese New Year is determined by the Chinese calendar, a lunisolar calendar. The same calendar is used in countries that have adopted the Confucian and Buddhism tradition and in many cultures influenced by the Chinese. Chinese New Year starts on the first day of the new year containing a new moon (some sources even include New Year's Eve) and ends on the Lantern Festival fourteen days later. This occurs around the time of the full moon as each lunation is about 29.53 days in duration. In the Gregorian calendar, the Chinese New Year falls on different dates each year, on a date between January 21 and February 21.
