The dragon commands the highest respect in Chinese culture. For thousands of years, it was associated with the emperor and his descendants, symbolising wisdom, enlightenment, and benevolence. The dragon was also said to command water and rain, and by ensuring abundant harvests became a powerful symbol of wealth and good fortune.

Those born under the sign of the lunar dragon in 2024, 2012, 2000, 1988, 1976, and every 12th preceding year, are said to be ambitious, successful, and charismatic.
