Are Dragon Years Lucky?

Yes, dragon years are exceptionally lucky for all Chinese zodiac signs.

Honestly, darlings, this is the year you have been waiting for!

In China, because the Dragon Year is considered so lucky, people often wait to time important life events like moving houses or jobs, getting married, or having a baby until the Dragon Year.

The dragon will bring you good luck and progress, particularly when it comes to work, property, and money.

As a Tarot reader, I see the dragon as The Magician and Knight of Swords combined. Magic is combined with speed.

It is impossible to resist the dragon’s enthusiasm, as he gives you a boost of confidence and optimism. Under his energy, you suddenly feel more confident and certain about what you want. You may be more drawn to the spotlight, desiring recognition for your work or efforts in general.

The dragon whispers, Just do it!

And magically, you do! For the first time in a long time, the time is simply right.

This year you should achieve some important personal milestone—it could be to do with work, business, love, family, personal growth, or studies.

As the year draws to a close, you’ll likely look back with a sense of wonder: 2024 was the year that transformed my life. That was my turning point.

Why is This Dragon Year so Lucky?

This Dragon Year is particularly special and lucky. Let me explain why.

In Chinese astrology, there are 12 animal zodiac signs.

There is the Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig. Every 12 years, each animal gets a turn to rule the planet for one year, and they bestow their unique energy on the world, influencing what happens to us on a personal level and on events in the world on a global scale.

In 2024, we embrace the era of the dragon, a time traditionally marked by abundance of energy and progress. However, not all dragon years are the same. This is because there are five types of dragons. These include the Wood Dragon, Fire Dragon, Water Dragon, Metal Dragon, and Earth Dragon.

In 2024, the spotlight shines on the Wood Dragon, also revered as the Green Wood Dragon. The color green symbolizes the element of wood, evoking images of thriving trees and lush foliage. Mother Nature in all her abundance.

Of all the dragons, the Green Wood Dragon is hailed as the most fortunate among its clan. This lucky dragon graces our lives only once every 60 years, making 2024 a year of exceptional promise and rare opportunities.

What Happens in The Year of The Dragon?

This year is particularly lucky for:

  • Career growth and recognition. Expect promotions, salary increases, and projects completed successfully.
  • Business, it’s a brilliant time to launch, or push your business to the next level.
  • Creative people, particularly writers, musicians, and designers. Break out of your usual patterns.
  • Those of you who want to make a name for yourself should raise your profile, be known for something, maybe online or on TV, give public talks, or run training courses.
  • Hobbies can be turned into cash this year.
  • If you don’t like your job, either you’ll find a new one or you’ll be forced to change. You and your skills will be in demand.
  • Adventure and bigger trips than normal. Flying more than usual, the big wings of the dragon.
  • Money from lucky and unexpected sources, windfall, and competitions.
  • It’s a good year to build a house or invest in property.

If you want to make the most of the dragon’s energy, think big. Push yourself more than usual out of your comfort zone.

Do the thing you’ve been talking about doing for years.

World Predictions

Solar Flares

The transformative fire energy of the dragon will have a big impact on events around the world. It is no coincidence that NASA has predicted a peak in solar flares from the sun in mid-2024. Solar flares from the sun can play havoc with our electric grid and internet, and there may even be an international blackout. So, make sure you have your candles ready!


In the previous Green Wood Dragon Year of 1964, there was an election in America, won by the Democrat Lyndon Johnson, and in Great Britain, Labour was swept into power with a landslide victory. Could history repeat itself this year?

In the same year, in Russia, party leader Nikita Khrushchev was brutally stripped of power by rival Leonid Brezhnev. We can all hope that Vladimir Putin ends up with a similar fate.

Volcanoes and Earthquakes

The Green Dragon Years are also associated with earthquakes and volcanoes. The US’s strongest ever earthquake struck on Good Friday, 1964, in Alaska, measuring 9.2 in magnitude.

The Economy

On a happy note, the economy should do well in the Year of the Dragon. It is safe to be optimistic about your job and finances. Economists worried that the western world would enter a depression after Covid, but what they didn’t bank on, was the energy of the dragon to keep the fire stoked!

However, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The Dragon Year encourages success, and it may well be that your success comes from doing exactly that: walking away.
