Year of the Dragon 2000 (Australia)


The fifth sign in the Chinese zodiac, the Dragon is one of China's most complex and multi-tiered symbols. Unlike the dragon of the West, the Chinese dragon is a good-natured and benign creature. The Dragon is a creature of myth and legend, and they come in all shapes and sizes and have a serpentine body plus feet and claws as well as scaly skin.

Those born in the Year of the Dragon are said to be proud and lively with a tremendous amount of self-confidence. They are intelligent, quick to take advantage of opportunities, energetic and hardworking. They however can be impulsive and impatient.

Famous people born in the Year of the Dragon includes Bruce Lee, John Lennon, Mae West, Keanu Reeves, Sandra Bullock, Martin Luther King, Vladimir Putin and Pele.
