The dragon is the fifth annual sign in the 12-year cycle of the lunar calendar. Revered in Asian culture as a divine, benevolent creature, it is said to bestow ambition, charisma, and success on those born under its patronage.

Like all signs in the lunar zodiac, the auspicious mythical creature is associated with five fundamental elements - wood, fire, earth, metal, and water. According to the Chinese philosophy of Wuxing (Five Elements Theory), the ebb and flow of of these interconnected elements is responsible for the change in all things in the cosmos.

In lunar astrology, it is believed the elements take turns to further shape the destiny of people born under each sign. In 2024, the dragon is influenced by wood - consequently 'wood dragons' are thought to be warm, wise, generous, and compassionate.
