The dragon is a legendary cultural symbol of China, and a vital part of Chinese folklore, culture, and history. Contrary to the fire-throwing antagonistic dragons depicted in Western culture, Chinese dragons signify good fortune, compassion, benevolence, power, and prosperity. They are considered to be the gods of weather and water bodies, like clouds, rain, oceans, rivers, waterfalls, and lakes.
Chinese dragons are an amalgamation of other powerful and symbolically meaningful animals. For example, in popular culture the dragon is thought to borrow its head from a camel, in tribute to the resilient and economically important camels of the Gobi Desert. It also features horns which are a symbol of strength and beauty; eyes of a demon which represent keen observation and how nothing can escape its wrath; the ears of a cow which provide compassionate and highly sensitive hearing; the neck of a snake which signifies alertness; the scales of a carp which allow it to glide and protect it from harm; the claws of an eagle and paws of a tiger which represent unmatched power and grip. The overall creature is one that symbolises perfection, strength, power, authority, prosperity, and compassion. T
Those who were born in the Year of the Dragon in the Chinese Zodiac are considered to be confident, ambitious, strong leaders, healthy, and loving.
