Earth Dragon Chinese Zodiac
People born under the Chinese Zodiac sign of the Dragon are proud, fierce, and majestic, just like the dragons of Chinese legend. They do not have much in common with Western dragons, who are usually portrayed as evil. In the Chinese horoscope, a Dragon is a good omen, because people born under this Chinese sign are powerful, motivated, and successful.
People under the sign of the Dragon in the Chinese horoscope are intelligent and creative. Most Dragons, however, are ruled by their hearts and their passions rather than their intelligence. Few Dragons stop to carefully consider a course of action before taking it, and they are lucky that their intuitions are usually right, so it all seems to work out in the end. Also, Dragons are simply full of energy. If a project seems to be failing, but it can be saved by pure hard work, a Dragon person will find a way to pull it off.
Dragons are lucky in that they have very good physical health. This allows them to indulge their tendency to overwork without becoming ill. People born under the Chinese Zodiac sign of the Dragon can be vulnerable to minor stress related ailments, however, such as migraine headaches and high blood pressure. Most Dragons do not take advice well, and can end up in trouble if one of their plans goes awry. Because Dragons tend to put everything of themselves into every project, they have a lot to lose if their intuition fails them.
Following the cycles of the Chinese horoscope, every year is affected by one of five elements. Every fifth year of the Dragon is tempered by the Earth element. The element of Earth is very grounding, and this element settles down the typical Dragon personality. Earth Dragons have all the inner power of the Dragon, along with the intelligence and creativity, but they have the ability to coolly think things over that most other Dragons lack.
Being able to calmly think through situations before acting is a great advantage to a Dragon person. He or she will be able to use his or her intelligence to the fullest in making wise decisions, and his or her energy and work ethic will carry him or her through to success. People born under the Chinese sign of the Dragon and tempered by Earth are very inspiring to others because they make wise financial decisions and tend to rise quickly into success.
Earth Dragons still have the love of the spotlight that characterizes people born under the Dragon sign. However, they are far less likely to become enraged if things do not go their way. Earth Dragons are less attracted to drama than other Dragons, and as a result their lives are not as tumultuous. Earth Dragons are far more likely than others to settle down with a serious mate early in life.
The Earth Dragon is just as magnetic, charming, and charismatic as other Dragons, and will draw many admirers. The Earth Dragon person is far less likely to leave a string of broken hearts behind them though, because their calm thinking keeps them from making foolish decisions.
