I think it's important to realize that the birth of the Year of the Dragon means more challenges, because the dragon is a symbol of powerful creatures, and the tigers and rams are symbols of repulsiveness, so they are fortunate to get high because of the lack of enemies. However, in the long run, luck and real strength who win the final victory can be seen at a glance.
Chinese horoscopes are vastly more complicated than 12 zodiac animals or earthly branches which permute with 10 celestial stems, forming 60-year cycles.
Likewise, western horoscopes are more complicated than 12 astrological signs which are influenced by ascendant signs, planetary movements and houses.
No, dragon will not always be lucky, other animals have chance too, poor chinese create dragon symbol and make them the luckiest like their chinese symbol dragon...............dragon is not exist, can't see them..............that not fair.......... I hate dragon......dragon not always power...........stop talking about dragon like your chinese people, other people are not chinese, we don't have and don't need to workship dragon like chinese people did everyone.............
I love the chinese zodiac because it is very accurate. I’ve learned to rely on it time and again. For example my first marriag was very problamatic and only lasted 7 years. I married the sign directly opposit me... a big no no. Now I am in a very healthy, awesome, fun, 22 year relationship with the sign most complimentary to mine. The personality traits always fit the the year asigned, just sometimes we don’t recognise ourselves!
I just couldnt relate to the tiger thats not me & i wasnt refusing to take a good look at myself, i could relate to the rabbit and the ox my birthdate is the 01/01/1962 but i related to the animals born in 61 or 63 weird
there's also a month, day and hour animal.. the day animal is said to be YOU. Because I'm the year of the Earth Dragon. but my month animal is the Metal Monkey, day is the Water Rat and my hour animal is the Metal Pig. I fit more of the Rat than the Dragon
my aunt is a Pig, in a long-term relationship with uncle whom is a Tiger. everyone in my family never like her so-called husband, bcoz we see how he use her for his own benefits. she's just too naive, bcoz he is rich. but she always use her own money to pay everything. im a Monkey anyway. Tiger is Monkey's nemesis.
