The Dragon and the Five Elements

The Dragon: A Wood Sign

The Dragon sign is of the Wood element. Generally, Wood bestows an expansive, open characteristic to people born with this element. They find it easy to get along well with others, especially in a group context and bring good, energising vibes to any situation. They are compassionate people, who look for ways to help others and bring justice.

.

 

The Metal Dragon – 1940, 2000

The Metal Dragon is the most strong-willed among all Dragons. These Dragons possess all the qualities to achieve great success: enthusiasm, unwavering confidence and intense determination.

The Metal element only serves to strengthen the already powerful Dragon. They are born leaders who are very expressive, and at times may be unknowingly critical. They are unfazed by challenges and will never give failure a thought. Intensely driven to accomplish big things in life, they have a rigid “zero-tolerance” rule for laziness and playfulness, which applies to themselves and others.

Despite the fact that they are whole-heartedly content on working on their own, they will attract a legion of followers. They have the courage of a general leading his army into war, and hence followers naturally feel convinced with every word the Metal Dragon utters. After all, with a Metal Dragon, victorious success is the only option.

Their words can either make it or break it. They are able to persuade non-believers into passionate fighters. However, they will not fare well in situations which require some level of diplomatic skills. Disagree with what he has to say? He’ll march off with his head up on his own solitary way. Tough and bright, they will compete with all their might!

 

Life Lessons:

The Metal Dragon’s intention and speech may at times conflict with each other. He says what he means and means what he says – but it may not necessarily be words that are kind or constructive. Being consciously aware of the feelings of those around him will help him create fewer enemies.

.

 

The Water Dragon – 1952, 2012

The calmness and coolness of Water pacifies the naturally aggressive Dragon. This attribute will provide the Dragon with clarity and balance making them good negotiators and diplomats. Unlike the Fire Dragon, they are able to take time out to think and plan their next move wisely.

The secret to their success lays in their ability to be humorous when necessary, hardworking when necessary and to bite their tongue when necessary. They are able to control their emotions and thoughts providing them the composure and stability the other Dragons lack.

Passionate, opportunistic and progressive, they will not feel defeated even when they fall flat on the ground or if a door is slammed in their face. To them, it’s part of the growing process that everyone must go through – they are no different so there is nothing to be ashamed of!

They believe in a slow-and-steady approach, as opposed to the Metal Dragon who charges towards a goal. They are patient enough to know that good things come to those who wait. Don’t mistake their patience for inertness or passiveness. Just remember, who won the race: the rabbit or the tortoise?

The Water element will also make him expansive, open and gentle with others. The Water Dragon enjoys company, cooperativeness and sharing.


Life Lessons:

They are never reluctant to share their ideas with others but by their openness, they have the tendency to over-stretch themselves. They will need to set their limits and not spread themselves too thin.

.

 

The Wood Dragon – 1904, 1964, 2024

The Wood Dragon is characterized by his uncanny ability to attract fortune and luck in spite of his often peculiar choices. Wood Dragons possess a natural curiosity towards everything and are unafraid to explore the unexplored. They have the fearlessness of an imperial Dragon and the ego of Mother Teresa.

Unaffected by what others say, coupled with their creativeness and innovativeness, they have what it takes to be the revolutionary developers necessary for society’s growth.  They are able to generate a dominating force within anything they set their minds to. They are original, innovative thinkers and doers – they enjoy intellectual stimulation more than to strive for corporate success. Success to them falls not within society’s definition; they may be successful in life, but perhaps not in their career.

They are non-confrontational and it is uncommon for the Wood Dragon to be on anyone’s hate list. Although they are unaffected by what others say, they will avoid stepping on anyone’s toes – why cause trouble when harmony is a viable option? However, his naturally curious nature will also mean that he has a tendency to overanalyse things to a point that exasperates everyone else around him. Don’t forget that he is still a Dragon and has a naturally large ego that must always look out for itself and what will be most advantageous to him.

 

Life Lessons:

The Wood Dragon’s differing perspective on life will take them down an unpredictable path so they need to be more open to the advice and opinions of others. Before embarking in a particular direction, they may want to consider their long-term priorities: is money or passion more important?

.

 

The Fire Dragon – 1916, 1976

The Fire element strengthens the naturally fiery Dragon. They breathe power and ambition, and are unsurprisingly the most competitive of all Dragons. They have intense energy and place high expectations in all areas of their life: love, career, self-development etc.

As self-cultivated perfectionists, they become an unstoppable force due to their high intelligence. They have the Midas Touch and will succeed in whatever they do. If they choose to be, they have the potential to become great leaders. This is especially so if they are able to subdue their temper and energy-exhausting pace. Others may mistake their overzealous and powerful approach towards leadership to be dictator-like! The Fire Dragon demands as much from others as he demands from himself. Their emotions have a tendency to control their actions, and at times they may react recklessly causing them to accumulate plenty to regret.

However, although they may shoot fire at others, they in actual fact place great care towards others’ well-being. They will be the first to donate towards a charitable cause and the first to uncover the truth on behalf of the wrongly accused.

With their vibrant charisma and larger-than-life personality, it’s no doubt that most Fire Dragons become celebrities, e.g. Reese Witherspoon, Ryan Renolds and Alicia Silverstone, to name a few.

 

Life Lessons:

The Fire Dragon must learn to curb both his impulsiveness and tendency to rely only on his own judgment. He needs to understand that powerful as he is, not everyone can match his might. He could learn to be more patient, forgiving and open to hearing what others have to say before reacting on a whim.

.

 

The Earth Dragon – 1928, 1988

The Earth element allows the Dragon to be more grounded, level-headed and stable. Their friendships are long-term commitments, and they tend to be more sociable than other Dragons. However, despite the fact that they are naturally liked by everyone – peers and teachers, colleagues and employers – they have the tendency to remain impersonal, mostly because they are more concerned with creating realistic, practical outcomes than indulging in fanciful ideas.

Their innate talents can be developed and enhanced due to their patient and hardworking nature. As self-motivators, they constantly have the need for personal improvement even if the external world does not call for it. This causes them to be contemplators, who like to spend plenty of time in introspection.

Their need for logic and common sense sees many Earth Dragons maturing into morally-sound and well-rounded individuals. They have clear objectives in life that are realized due to their business acumen, flexibility and creativity. With their reasonable, level-headed approach to goals and their naturally generous nature, they are able to generate wealth as easily as they are able to obtain support for their work. Then, once they have what they need, they have the skill of churning everything to its greatest potential. This Dragon is especially resourceful and broad-thinking, producing benefits for the greater good.

It’s not unusual for Earth Dragons to receive accolades within their profession, e.g. Andy Warhol, Che Guevara, Rihanna and Adele to name a few.

 

Life Lessons:

The Earth Dragon is quick to snap back when their integrity and dignity are criticised. Disembarking from their high horses would help create more admirers and long-term support, which the Earth Dragon secretly desires. He also tends to overspend on many reckless, impulse buys. Curbing his expenditure will create less waste and build more financial stability.

    I wish I was the lucky soul Dragons are supposed to be! Even a small powerball would make me a very happy person indeed!!! Yes I am usually the non-confrontational one but if I’m mad enough I take care of it in a passive aggressive way. I have a lot of Taurus and more than a few dragons around me so I guess birds of a feather eh? I know for a fact the stuff about the dog and the dragon can’t stand each other is true, most dog people I know are not considered close friends and a water dog friend of mine married an earth dragon and it only lasted a couple of years. I am now involved with an earth rooster who acts a lot more like a metal rooster (but the sign is metal so no surprise really). I do not live my life by the horoscope but I always find it amusing at just how many nails get hit on the head on a regular basis. I have always liked dragons even before I found out that I is one. Thanks for the great site.

    I find that true about a lot of dragons that they are charismatic and seem to have good luck. It’s not the case with me though! Also description here doesn’t match very well with myself. I must be the odd one. haha

  3. Low Khjb on Jan 12, 2014 at 11:31 am

    Thank you for the kind reminder.It came at the right time for me to look back on to my thoughts and action.I must practice mindfulness and respect towards others.I must use my inborn abilities to help others to create harmony and progress.

    I am a fire dragon for Chinese and a water dragon for Western. Some of it are quite accurate because there are some facts which I find not what I am. It is true about the forgiving and channelling my energy into something positive which I rather choose positive as I know negative has done nothing for me except being bitter and sad. The zodiacs are really interesting though because we get to know a bit more of other people we meet.

  5. Wan Wai Meng on Sep 18, 2011 at 10:45 am

    Such a powerful and resourceful sign hehe. They love being flattered hehe it seems their main Achilles heel. They have tonnes of resources and very resourceful in getting information etc. I would love to work with dragons! And among my colleagues their is an Earth Dragon.

  6. Cynthia on Sep 16, 2011 at 5:39 am

    My chinese zodiac is Fire Dragon and my western zodiac is Aries which is a fire sign. Sounds like I am double fiery. Astrology has been a great interest of mine since young. Maybe because I like to know and learn more about myself just as many other people. Thank you for such comprehensive information on the website for me to reflect my good or bad qualities. I can see clearer now which area I need to work on. I also like reading other people’s horoscopes to see if it matches their qualities and to see how accurate of astrology is. Helps me understand better on how to deal with someone.

    According to Buddhist belief, we can take rebirth in the animal realms. Therefore, it is possible that we were an animal in our previous life. If we look at some people, their behaviours are very animal-like, this might be an indication that they were an animal in their previous life and they bring these behaviours with them into this life.

    This is a proof that while we cannot bring the wealth we have accumulated with us when we die but we will bring our karmas, our habits with us when we die. Since this is the case, we shoould get rid of our bad habituation while we can and cultivate good qualities to create the cause to take rebirth in a better place.

    Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for this beautiful , heartfelt sharing. Rinpoche’s love for Oser is unconditional. The thought of Oser dog is the only thing on earth that loves Rinpoche more than Oser love herself. Animals have come to mean so much in our lives. In our eyes, dogs always win as the sweetest, cutest, and most lovable pets we have. Well from what I read from the post Oser hold a special place in Rinpoche’s heart and well taken care of, having all the love, care.

    Thank you Pastor David for sharing the simplicity of Rinpoche’s room which I am sure many of us would like to know more. Rinpoche had choose to live an abundant life through self- simplicity. Rinpoche cares for others more than himself and always lightens the burdens of another. Rinpoche ‘s kindness and compassion will transform someone’s dark moment with a blaze of light. Rinpoche will not waste a minute in his life, bringing benefits to those around him and others. Whatever Rinpoche did was never for himself.
    Recently when I was at the DA I saw those large collections of English Dharma books of Rinpoche. Amazing collections…..from books shelves, gifts shelves, to Rinpoche’s two Schnauzers shelves which is full of snacks and toys.
    From what I read in this post tells all how facilitate Rinpoche’s room is.

    Having the Panglung Ritroe- The Rising House of Power is a historical landmark for us at Kechara Forest Retreat, Bentong. A few years back Kechara were given the privilege of building an official place of residence to the oracle of Dorje Shugden. Great merits to have it here at Kechara , can imagined a residence for the oracle other than, H E. the 7th Panglung Kuten Thubten Phelgye Jigme Namgyal, who is known as Choje-la to many of us. The original Panglung Ritroe in Lhasa which was home to the Panglung Rinpoches and the lineage of the Panglung oracles was destroyed during the Chinese invasion. And our Guru decided to build one for the Oracle so as Dorje Shugden’s lineage preserved, that will bringing tremendous benefits to many in future.
    From what I saw from pictures of the residence , it is beautiful, spacious indeed. Rejoice to JP, the kind sponsors and the teams who made this happen.
    May the pure lineage of Tsongkhapa and Dorje Shugden continues to flourish.
    Thank you Rinpoche for what Rinpoche have done , bringing the lineage of Dorje Shugden to Malaysia. We are indeed fortunate able to receive teachings from Rinpoche and practice it.

    Thank you, Pastor Henry, for sharing this important message. There are a lot of suffering and killings happens behind walls that people are too ignorant to find out. Killings are very common and in fact, it is a necessary part of the whole industry to produce meat that most people loves. Little did they know where and how did the meat come from.

    For us to have the meat, an animal will have to be butchered. There are plenty of suffering right from the moment where the animal is born. Usually, they will be separated from their mothers and start living in small and cramp places. Then, they will be fed an unnatural diet with plenty of growth hormones.

    When they are in good size, the animals will be butchered mercilessly without sympathy. This is the life of a farm animal. So much of suffering and pain created just for the sake of us filling our hungry stomach.

    The Peace book teaches us the truth that we need very badly. In our daily life, so many things draw us away from the truth, by entertainment, shopping, and so on.Harmony, love, care and forgiveness is what we need to practice day after day so that it becomes natural with time.
    One thing good is that nothing is permanent, not even our deluded mind and we all have a choice we can make each and every day when we wake up. We can choose to be positive and negative and the path we take for that day creates positive or negative circumstances in the future.

    Beautiful underwater restaurant in the Maldives called ‘Ithaa’, and it is built 5 meters (16 feet) below sea level making it completely submerged in the sea. The acrylic view allows the restaurant diners to have a 180-degree panoramic view of the sea.

    This is the world’s first underwater restaurant. It is highly popular but is only able to host 14 people at one time, so diners are advised to make a booking 14 days in advance.

    The concept is really unique. The structure was conceptualized in New Zealand, and built in Singapore. After construction, it was shipped over to Maldives where the restaurant currently is. It really is amazing how engineers and architects can create such magnificent structures. There really are no limitations to creating something from our imagination… Do have a look at the beautiful pictures of the underwater restaurant at http://bit.ly/2CD9L0P

    Beautiful Buddha standing at ‘Husain Sagar’ lake, in India.

    It is a lake in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India, built by Hazrat Hussain Shah Wali in 1562, during the rule of Ibrahim Quli Qutb Shah. It was 5.7 square kilometres built on a tributary of the River Musi to meet the water and irrigation needs of the city. There is a large monolithic statue of the Gautam Buddha in the middle of the lake which was erected in 1992.

    In another source: Buddha Statue of Hyderabad. Hyderabad is the capital of the state of Andhra Pradesh. Between 1983 and 1989, N. T. Rama Rao served as the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh. During his tenure, he spent large sums to erect several statues of people from the region’s political and religious history. During his visit to New York, he saw the Statue of Liberty and was inspired by the efforts to restore it. He said “I wanted something like that… That would have been my contribution to society.” Rama Rao chose to depict Gautama Buddha because “he was a humanitarian who told the whole truth to the people. It is our pride.”

    Oprah Winfrey and some of her staff recently took on a challenge… to go vegan for one week!

    For seven days, Oprah and her members of staff decided to go without meat, fish, milk, eggs, cheese etc… basically any product or by-product that comes from an animal. The charge was led by New York Times best-selling author Kathy Freston, who has sworn by a vegan lifestyle for seven years now.

    She said that “Everyone [at Harpo] was so excited and interested in it. I think knowing that it can be such a game-changer — that it can really affect you in your body and your spirit — I think so many people were just excited to give it a whirl.”

    In order for meat to arrive at our dinner plates, IT HAS TO COME FROM SOMEWHERE. In this case, animals have to be slaughtered and killed. It’s worse when the animal is mistreated right up to the point of death…

    We can’t always turn a blind eye to where our meat comes from… it comes from the blood and life of another being that is NOT WILLING to give it up just so that we can pleasure our tastebuds.

    Narrated by and starring Sir Paul McCartney, PETA’s shocking new video takes its inspiration from the most well-known quote in the animal rights movement and offers a brief glimpse behind the walls of slaughterhouses, factory farms, live-animal transport and the fishing industry.

    By teaming up with PETA to produce the powerful video – titled, “Glass Walls” – Sir Paul is helping to uncover the horrific abuse that the meat and dairy industries inflict on animals to provide consumers with cheap burgers, nuggets and other products. He also explains the massive cost to the environment for which the meat industry is directly responsible.

    Billions of individual animals are violently killed for their flesh every year – whilst others spend almost their entire lives confined in filthy, cramped conditions, where they are forced to produce seemingly endless supplies of eggs or gallons of milk.

    The concept of a meatless diet may be a hard sell for many athletes and their fans. The demands of strenuous activity necessary for games/matches or regular practices may require as many as 6,000 calories and 200 grams of protein daily depending upon the player and his or her sport. How can famous vegetarian athletes possibly meet that need without eating meat?

    While plant-based diets have been proven to help reduce the risk of diabetes, cancer and heart disease, as well as speed along the repair of torn muscles and tendons and improve blood and oxygen flow, some still emphasize the difficulty vegetarian/vegan athletes face when attempting to reach their athletic goals. NFL Nutritionist Mitzi Dulan explains that reaching the massive caloric and protein intake levels necessary is easier for some players to reach by eating protein-dense, higher calorie animal foods. However, the body itself more easily processes grains, veggies, legumes and fruit into energy. The only problem, according to Dulan, is that it takes a LOT of the latter foods to fuel NFL player body demands—as well as strict vigilance about the nutrients they’re consuming. Quinoa, beans, hemp, nuts, seeds and vegetarian/vegan protein shakes can help these famous vegetarian athletes meet their needs.

    Let’s meet some famous athletes who’ve gone meatless despite the naysayers and find out how it’s working for these vegetarian athletes at http://bit.ly/2CFdBqi

    Most of us has taken it for granted that we have a connection with Dharma, let a lone met a qualified teacher. When we have met a qualified teacher, we must not let go of the teacher because we are not sure when we will meet a qualified teacher to have him guide us in our spiritual journey. In order to be connected to our teacher and the three Jewels not only in this life but all of our future life times, we must take the opportunity to make offerings and do the practice. Sometimes, our negative karma is so strong that we cannot see the truth, but have faith in our teacher and follow his instruction without having a doubt. When we have purified our negative karma and collected enough merits, we will have the realisation.

    There are no second chances in life, except to feel remorse. Chances are given only once I do believe. If there is, it will be a miracle or considered you are truly lucky. Once you lose it , there is no turning back. One always have a choice and chance, grab it when opportunity come or else it will be too late. Having it , appreciate it once for all before our time is out. Learning , practicing Dharma is the best choice
    I have chosen even though I started late. Its never too late after all ,I found Tsem Rinpoche’s blog and since then it have changed my life.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful inspirational quote. Everything is from within ourselves. We gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which we come across. Courage is knowing what not to fear. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. Compassion is the desire that moves the individual self to widen the scope of its self-concern to embrace the whole of the universal self.
    We practice compassion, kindness , caring and respect each other in whatever situation, turning negatives to positive.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
