Oh, Dragon, what a creature! The Dragon symbolizes power, nobleness, honour, luck, and success in traditional Chinese culture. The Dragon is a supernatural being with no parallel for talent and excellence.
This magical and selfless being finished the Jade Emperor’s race in fifth place because, while flying to the finish line, he saw how thirsty the people, animals, and land were. Knowing that he could assuage the suffering of humanity, Dragon stopped and made it rain. Dragons have always been seen as controlling rain.
Then he noticed Rabbit stuck in the middle of the river on a log and blew her to shore, enabling Rabbit to finish ahead of Dragon.
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 if challenges, and willing to take risks.
However, Dragons are sometimes regarded as aggressive, and angry Dragons are not open to criticism.
For these reasons, Dragon is known to be noble, powerful, generous, and idealistic. Dragons are courageous, intelligent, charismatic, and passionate. They often marry late in life, and as natural leaders brimming with self-assurance, they don’t like deferring to others. They are hardworking and capable of success in all things.
Honest and direct, Dragons crave to be of use and need to find a purpose or goal in life. They don’t recognize their own limits and should avoid over-working.
