FABRIC velvet Year of the Dragon: 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012, 2024 Dragons are idealists, perfectionist, stubborn, and easily angered. People born under the sign tend to say what they think and even when they are not right, their convictions often make them worth listening to. Dragons will shine at whatever they try. Their enthusiasm is always near the surface and easy to rouse. People born under the sign are often very loved, but only rarely are they able to love themselves wholeheartedly. Often they’re self-reliant and sometimes appear happier to be alone.
