The dragon is a mythological animal that looks something like a winged, fire-belching crocodile. The dragon is the fifth sign in the Chinese zodiac. It represents the east direction, sunrise, and rain. In the East, the dragon is considered to be good-natured, supportive, and caring. In the West, dragons have been regarded as evil, vicious kidnappers of innocent young maidens. In the Middle Ages, the dragon was considered synonymous with sin. This is because of two references in the Bible: "Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet" (Psalm 91:13), and "And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world." (Revelation 12:9). However, the ancient Britons used the dragon as a national symbol on their standards when they went to war, and a red dragon is still a prominent feature on the flag of Wales. To dream of a dragon is a sign of strength, potency, and vigor. Consequently, it is an indication of fertility. The dragon is also a magical animal. For this reason, to dream of a dragon is also a sign that you have more abilities and talents than you think you do. In the past, dreaming of a dragon was a sign that the dreamer would meet the emperor. Generally speaking, to dream of a dragon is an omen of good luck.
