Famous people born in the Year of the Dragon

Born in the Year of the Dragon are people from the elegant Cary Grant to Mr. T. Some of them even can dance such as Julianne Hough who came into the spotlight on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.”

 

 

Hollywood has shown us who can dance. Who can forget that Al Pacino tango scene in “Scent of a Woman”? Ray Bolger was originally a dancer, too. Remember him in “The Wizard of Oz”? Then there’s the late Patrick Swayze who made us all swoon and wish we were Baby.

This is the year of the Water Dragon. I’ve picked people based on the Japanese start (1 January) but also listed the dates of the Chinese lunar year).

People born in the Year of the Dragon are strong, vigorous, passionate and pioneering, but also can be tyrannical, demanding and violent.

This year is about change and re-creation. Reform, including social reform.

How will you fare in 2012? This is a good year for people born in the element of metal, water and wood, but not for people born in the year the element is fire and earth.

This is a good year for people born under the Rat, Tiger, Rabbit, Monkey and Chicken.

For people born in the Years of the Ox and Dog it is a bad year.

Of course, all matters on the rest of your Chinese horoscope. You also are born in a month and hour of a zodiac sign. For instance, people born in February are mostly born under the Tiger.
