At first glance, the dragon is my far the most mysterious of all the animals of the Chinese Zodiac, and the one most up to interpretation as to what the dragon is. A Komodo Dragon might come to mind for a Westerner, but
Fruits Baskets takes a very Eastern view by having Hatori Sohma transform into a Sear Horse, literally “tatsu no otoshigo” or “dragon’s child,” showing a glimmer of the awe the creatures emit.
For the Chinese, who proclaim themselves, “Lung Tik Chuan Ren” or “Descendents of the Dragon,” these Dragons bring about good fortune and the year itself is a grandiose one full of ambition. This brave and energetic nature races ten-fold through the very core of anyone born under the Dragon’s banner.
Dragons themselves are naturally healthy and loving individuals that are quite eccentric, but are easily excited and prone to stubborn outbursts. Dragons are pioneering individuals with their futures well through out in advance.
However, success is not necessarily a needed outcome as the very experience of trying is reward enough for a Dragon. Naturally softhearted, Dragons should be careful to not let themselves become too vulnerable by being too trusting of others.
Women born in this year are noble without exception and never submit to pressure when they have the chance to outside another individual—especially men. Females tend to be quite practical in their clothing choices as they hate being restricted—meaning they shy away from tight and flashy and go for loose and comfortable. Love for a Dragon comes from the very bottom of their heart and is the kind that is sincere and the truest of trues.
