Charismatic and powerful, Fire Dragon individuals can easily convince others to take after their ways, even when they don’t seem to be entirely right about something.

When it comes to their social life, they’re popular and love to have a wide circle of friends. But it’s difficult for them to hide their true intentions and to believe in others.

They will express their wishes openly and without hesitation. Many will know what they want the most and will try to fool them.

While they struggle to get a good position at work, it’s possible the colleagues with whom they have strong friendships to simply “steal” their thunder.

When it comes to health, Fire Dragons are not prone to ever suffer from something serious. But they can have some bad habits, so changing their diets and lifestyle is indicated if they don’t feel like they are living a healthy life.

When it comes to romance and family, it’s possible they will face some troubles because of their quick temper. Some control is necessary if they want to be happy with the people they love the most.

Many of them will get born in poor families, so their young years won’t be very enjoyable. But their plans and goals will always be to overcome their condition.

While lucky, they don’t really know how to manage their finances. What makes them different from Dragons in other elements is their endless energy.

Not to mention how much talent they have at being leaders. It seems like the Fire Dragons’ energy is meant to have them doing great things. Many will see these natives as too powerful and tyrannical, but they aren’t like this at all.

They only demand a lot from both themselves and others. When it comes to emotions, these natives usually control themselves, but they also have moments of recklessness, which often leads them to regret.

While seeming antagonizing, you can be sure they only want what’s best for those surrounding them. When someone will need their help or charity, be sure they will be there to deliver.

Those who have been done an injustice can count on them for protection and support. Charming and feeling like they’re the center of the world, these Dragons have all the chances to become famous.

But if they want great things to happen to them, they need to be less impulsive and to appreciate other people’s advice.

Understanding that not everyone is like them is also a good idea. They should be more patient, tolerant and open to hear what others are saying rather than acting at the first hunch they get.
