Which kind of Zodiac Dragon are you?
This forceful Dragon is a warrior in every sense. He fights for his cause with integrity, dignity and truthfulness, regarding his beliefs with fanatical intensity. An action man, he wastes to time with those he deems unworthy, concentrating his efforts in enlisting the company of those he feels are on the same level as he, morally, socially and mentally. But if they if they disagree with his will, this Dragon does not hesitate to go off on his own, feeling perfectly capable of defeating whatever needs to be defeated with his one- man army.
Softened by the water element, this Dragon is less selfish, more patient and less likely to hold grudges. He believes that everybody is entitled to his opinion, and can put aside his ego for the greater good. Wise in business, he has brilliant timing and an eye for opportunity which he rarely lets pass him by.

If she could learn to communicate more humbly and less brutally, she has the strength of character to build empires and lead nations.
