... the life of a Dragon .... the Master of Illusion
Dragons like Shakira and Rihanna promise a lot.
Chinese call the Dragon "Chén" what means "lóng" - witty.
Back in the very last year of the Rooster in 2005 it was up to Shakira and Rihanna to impress the world while many male Dragons were in struggling.
In fact, the Rooster is none of those classic soul mates for the Dragons, so that 2017 might be another rough road.
Dragons woud be well advised to focus on their magmificent social talents to find more allies in order to get safely through to the much better year of the Dog in 2018.
Certainly there are some fine chances in 2017, and most likely the female Dragons hve a good understanding of Rooster passion, what has made not only Rihanna so famous.
But also male Dragons may benefit like soccer genius Juergen Klinsmann, who had started his career in the Rooster year 1981 before he became the manager of the German national team in the 2005 Rooster year.
Ambition and intensse communication had helped him a lot and that is how Dragons can succeed in 2017.
Overall, the the Year of the Rooster is offering a lot of challenges, but Dragons are able to win it and to get well prepared for the forthcoming years.
