Tao Te Ching verse for Dragon
Do you want to improve the world? I do not think it can be done.
The world is sacred. It cannot be improved.
If you tamper with it you’ll ruin it.
If you treat it like an object you’ll lose it.
There is a time for being ahead, a time for being behind.
There is a time for motion, a time for being at rest.
A time for being vigorous, a time for being exhausted.
A time for being safe, a time for being in danger.
The Master sees things as they are without trying to control them.
She lets them go their own way and resides in the center of the circle.

A Dragon son is preferred because he will go forth in the world, overcome obstacles, succeed, and return to the family and increase their fortune. A Dragon daughter is not desired because she will not willingly submit to the Confucian “three virtues for women” that a daughter obey her father, a wife obey her husband, and an old woman obey her eldest son. Thanks to the women’s movement, modern Dragon women also can go forth and succeed. Regardless of gender, Dragons tend to marry later in life, if at all, since they are unwilling to to let go of adventures and dreams to live within the confines of an ordinary domestic life.

But if Dragon takes action to realize dreams, there is no limit to the heights that can be achieved.
Dragon year is a time of ambition, power, and daring. Events seem as if they are magnified threefold with increased intensity. The energy and vitality of Dragon year may make some people overly optimistic. Dragon year is an excellent time to start a business, marry, have children, and take incredible risks.
