Being born in the Chinese Year of the Dragon brings with it much good luck and fortune according to ancient astrological thinking. Their beliefs are that this mythical animal apportions some of its magical attributes to people beginning life in their designated years. Aquarians arriving during this fifth cycle of the Chinese astrology calendar benefit by acquiring the Dragon’s lucky and much respected presence. This oriental creature featuring in the western Aquarius sign represents a given gift of heightened senses with quick wit. These flamboyant personalities will often have the ability of great foresight and intuitiveness in similarity to the Dragon’s perceived character.
Aquarius Dragon Traits
The Aquarius Dragon often seems to be in a little world of their own as the Aquarian trait of dreaminess compliments the legendary animals demeanor. When you need someone to think outside the box then this particular personality is amply equipped. A fantastically creative imagination is one of the main features seen in those born at this time. They may have their heads in the clouds much more than other people but the progressive and loyal characteristics of Aquarius keep the Dragon’s influence grounded. The sway of the Chinese Dragon and his mystical powers and sixth senses are unmistakable in these people usually materialising as some form of artistic or musical talent.
If the Aquarius discovers his or her potential and takes full advantage of their Dragon influenced senses they can expect to achieve success. The Aquarius Dragon personality is bursting with helpfulness to others but when it comes to themselves their pride forces them to not ask for assistance. This stubborn self reliance is not beneficial but being an Aquarius too it is pretty much to be expected. Aquarius Dragons need companions who understand their free spirit and who will not mistake their dreamy episodes for disregard. If people close to the Aquarius Dragon learn to trust the strength of the intuitive eccentricity they clearly possess it will gain their respect.
It may be difficult to obtain the Aquarius Dragon’s true friendship as trust takes time to build. If you do manage to gain them as a friend or lover these particular characters are the most loyalist companions or soulmates around. Sincerity is another outstanding quality of the Aquarius and Dragon persona and is displayed in its full glory when these personalities commit to couplings with others. Any commitment of loyalty from these types will be made with surety, after much thought, and along with the intention of long term security.
With all this intellect and amazing foresight the Aquarius Dragon personality is not one to be generally short of confidence. This can be a weakness in their overall character as there are others who will try to dampen this self assurance by introducing negatives. This can knock the Aquarius Dragon into doubting their instinctive capabilities and induce bouts of low mood. This can be avoided by these Aquarians opting to prefer to associate with like minded individuals who encourage the Chinese Dragons intuitiveness, rather than those who discredit it.
Aquarius Dragon Compatibility (Love & Friendship)
Interestingly, while Aquarius Dragons may find each other in friendship, they rarely make good partners with other members of their sign in terms of love. That’s because Aquarius Dragons aren’t afraid to let their friends shine, but they will be damned if they will be outdone by their life partner. Friends are often those whom they share political or social views with, and they enjoy having other eccentric personalities around, usually to go find the most fabulous bar in town or hang out anywhere they believe the most interesting people to be.
In love, Aquarius Dragons work best with more understated partners who share their sense of fun and adventure. Aquarius Dragons typically have to be the “alpha” in every relationship, so they tend to find partners who are also fun-loving, but don’t take up too much of the spotlight. Their partners are usually well-liked and have good hearts, but also let them shine and even reign them in a bit when they take things a little too far.
Aquarius Dragon Business (Career & Goals)
Aquarius Dragons can’t help but find themselves involved in politics. It can be as small as their kid’s Parent-Teacher Association and as big as the Presidency of a Nation. One way or another, they feel the need to make their voices heard, and why not? They are good at it. Members of this sign succeed at various social and political roles at every level, though they must be careful not to become the self-centered person many others will likely assume them to be, as this is the Aquarius Dragon’s most certain path to self-destruction.
Members of this sign who are not politically leaning will find a rewarding career with a role where they can be in charge of themselves while still being involved in something they believe in. This is why many Aquarius Dragons make great entrepreneurs - a role they thrive in as long as they remember to ask for (and hire) help. The biggest mistake entrepreneurial Aquarius Dragons can make is trying to do too much by themselves. They need to learn humility and learn to trust others to see their vision through. If they can do this, they will go far.
