Dragon in 2019

Career: A Lot of Opportunities, Watch out Traps

Dragon officials will get some good opportunities this year, such as starting a business or investing after work. But the good luck in windfall can harm their official career; they should stabilize each step in every task and keep a peaceful mind in the face of temptation if they want to gain or advance in the current position. For Dragon people in business, the main chances can be traps and failure to investigate thoroughly may lead to financial losses or lawsuits; they are not suggested to cooperate with a government organ, or they will be more likely to invite a lawsuit.

Wealth: Survey Carefully and Play Safe

With an average luck in making money, people of Dragon sign generally make a fortune thru hard work and should survey and observe carefully for any possible windfalls. Otherwise, greed may lead to loss of money. Dragon people are suggested to play safe and less persistent in making money.

Marriage: Uncertain & Handle Properly

For married Dragon people, marriage can be uncertain this year, so do not quarrel over trifles; peace is the most precious in marriage and family and only a peaceful family can prosper - they are suggested to listen more to their partners' advice and care more about each other. At the same time, married Dragons should keep a proper relationship with the opposite sex and never start an ONS or illegal love affair, or their luck for career and family will be affected. Unmarried Dragons are suggested to start a relationship properly since they are prone to changes and hurt in love this year.

Health: Keep a Watchful Eye on the Health of the Elderly and Kids

People born in Dragon years should keep a watchful eye on spleen, stomach, intestinal and urinary problems. In particular, more attention should be paid to the health of the elderly and kids.
