CHINESE ZODIAC SIGN OF
DRAGON

There is no sign more venerated in Chinese Astrology than the Dragon. Proud, strong, and self-assured, the Dragon is a sign of nobility and power. Chinese Emperors used this very symbolism to represent themselves, regardless of what year they were born. Those born during the year of the Dragon are gifted with eloquence, idealism, and tenacity. Dragons don’t have to ask for things, they demand them. They can be dictatorial and inflexible in their associations with others, but at the same time be the warmest, most gentle individuals you may meet.

Dragons are full of life and vitality, encouraging those around them to be their best while maintaining a powerful, exotic presence amongst their peers.




It can be difficult for Dragons to see things from outside perspectives. Deep down those born during these years know that they are special. Usually gifted in a particular talent, they are also very lucky. Dragons were born to take charge, to succeed at what they focus on, regardless of whether their intentions are good or bad. As you might have guessed, Dragons can abuse their power just like anyone else. They don’t like taking orders from anyone, as they alone were born to take charge and command their people. 

There are 12 Primal Zodiac signs for the Eastern Zodiac sign of Dragon, one for each sign of the Western Zodiac. If you don’t know your Western Zodiac sign you can use this chart to find your Primal Zodiac sign, which contains both Eastern and Western signs.




Aquarius born during the Year of the Dragon...

Dragons born during the cycle of Aquarius are represented in Primal Astrology by the Leopard. Leopards are typically among the more exuberant of Aquarians. In fact, they are also one of the more opinionated as well. Leopards often find themselves the de facto leaders of teams they are on, not because they want to lead, but because others want them to. Leopards have to be careful not to fall too in love with their own ideas and ignore the greater good for their own personal gain.

Aries born during the Year of the Dragon...

Dragons born during the cycle of Aries are represented in Primal Astrology by the Tyrannosaurus Rex. Not surprisingly these individuals are among the most aggressive, demanding, and intimidating of all Primal Zodiac signs. The Dragon enhances Aries strong sense of confidence and dynamic energy while adding an idealism and leadership ability. However, the Dragon also brings with it an inflexibility to make compromises. Tyrannosaurus Rexes are more naturally gifted and lucky than most other Aries signs. You can read more about the Primal Zodiac sign of Tyrannosaurus Rex by clicking here.


Cancer born during the Year of the Dragon...

Dragons born during the cycle of Cancer are represented in Primal Astrology by the Hornet. Hornets are among the most confident of Cancers, but also among the most entitled. The Dragon brings pride, nobility, and self-respect to the Hornet, which is badly needed for the fragile Cancer, whose selflessness and concern for others balances out the Dragon’s selfish nature. Hornets are potentially very powerful individuals if they can learn to be honest with themselves and keep their emotions in check.

Capricorn born during the Year of the Dragon...

Dragons born during the cycle of Capricorn are represented in Primal Astrology by the Eagle. Eagles are proud, hard working, and extremely ambitious. The Chinese Zodiac’s Dragon brings a flair of nobility and a rather tireless sense of self confidence, though it also increases the likelihood that these Capricorns will become too black-or-white judgemental and get stuck defending their beliefs rather than questioning them. Eagles can easily overwork themselves and fill their days with more promises than they can keep. You can read more about the Primal Zodiac sign of Eagle by clicking here.


Gemini born during the Year of the Dragon...

Dragons born during the cycle of Gemini are represented in Primal Astrology by the Hummingbird. Hummingbirds are more feisty and tenacious than other Geminis, but they are also more likely to offend other people. The Dragon brings a pride and nobility to Gemini, which if taken too far can lead others to find Hummingbirds arrogant and tyrannical. However, the Dragon also allows Gemini to lead and the chance to achieve great things. You can read more about the Primal Zodiac sign of Hummingbird by clicking here.


Leo born during the Year of the Dragon...

Dragons born during the cycle of Leo are represented in Primal Astrology by the Orca, a.k.a. “Killer Whale”. Orcas are the most prideful of all Leos and never want to look bad in front of others. However, if taken too far, this can lead to self-delusions and a lack of taking personal responsibility. The presence of the Dragon intensifies Leo’s feisty sense of self assurance, but lessens Leo’s soft temperament and tolerance of others.

Libra born during the Year of the Dragon...

Dragons born during the cycle of Libra are represented in Primal Astrology by the Porcupine. With Porcupines, the Dragon adds a sense of confidence, nobility, and pride that Libra can make good use of, though Dragons also tend to be stubborn and temperamental as well. This combination is capable of great things, but they first have to keep from feeling entitled and becoming such perfectionists that no one can live up to their standards.

Pisces born during the Year of the Dragon...

Dragons born during the cycle of Pisces are represented in Primal Astrology by the Firefly.

Fireflies need to be social more so than other Pisces, which also helps balance out their energy. You can read more about the Primal Zodiac sign of Firefly by clicking here.

One of the luckiest signs in the Primal Zodiac, Whales are more temperamental and impetuous than other Sagittariuses, but they are also more aggressive and inflexible.
