Dragon’s Horoscope in 2021
2021 is a mixed year for Dragons — those born in a Chinese zodiac year of the Dragon. Although there are certain opportunities in their careers, just a little carelessness is likely to cause adversity. In 2021, Dragons should be more careful in their words and deeds, and in interpersonal situations, they should pay attention to avoid oral disputes.
In terms of health, Dragons’ overall performance in 2021 will be good, but they should still be careful of the adverse effects of bad living habits. Emotionally, 2021 will be a year without much luck in love, but married people will have the support of their spouses.
Monthly Fortune for Dragon in 2021
Is a Dragon Year a Lucky Year?
Generally, Dragon years are the most popular for giving birth: in Chinese culture Dragon children are most sought after.
However, according to Chinese tradition, when the year of your birth sign comes around it is believed to be bad luck. One’s birth year is called one’s ‘origin (of) life year’(本命年běnmìngnián /bnn-ming-nyen/) and is supposed to be a whole year of bad luck. Generally, all aspects of your life, including love, health, career and finance, will not go well.
Therefore Dragons should be more careful in years of the Dragon. The next Dragon Year is 2024. It starts on Chinese New Year (February 10, 2024). Read more on How to Be Lucky in Your Ben Ming Nian.
Which Type of ‘Dragon’ Are You?
In Chinese element theory, each zodiac sign is associated with one of five elements: Gold (Metal), Wood, Water, Fire, or Earth, which means that a Wood Dragon, for example, comes once in a 60-year cycle.
It is theorized that a person’s characteristics are decided by their birth year’s zodiac animal sign and element. So there are five types of Dragons, each with different characteristics:
|Type of Dragon||Characteristics|
|Wood Dragon (1964, 2024)||Introverted, less enthusiastic, and lacking in good relationships|
|Fire Dragon (1916, 1976)||Smart, unreliable, and easygoing|
|Earth Dragon (1928, 1988)||Smart, ambitious, and hardworking|
|Gold Dragon (1940, 2000)||Natural and straightforward, unpredictable with continually changing emotions|
|Water Dragon (1952, 2012)||Persevering, farsighted, and vigorous|

The Dragon’s Personality: Confident, Intelligent…
Among the Chinese zodiac animals, the dragon is the sole imaginary animal. The Chinese dragon is the most vital and powerful beast in the Chinese zodiac, although Dragons have an infamous reputation for being a hothead and possessing a sharp tongue.
In ancient times, people thought that Dragons were best suited to be leaders of the world with their character traits of dominance and ambition.
Gifted with innate courage, tenacity, and intelligence, Dragons are enthusiastic and confident. They are not afraid of challenges, and willing to take risks.
However, Dragons are sometimes regarded as aggressive, and angry Dragons are not open to criticism. They don’t consider themselves irritating and arrogant. Instead of following tradition, they strive for a smooth future.
