The Year of the Dragon is fifth in the 12-year cycle of the Zodiac. The animals on the Chinese lunar calendar were selected and placed numerically by the Jade Emperor. While the dragon may be fifth, it is the most revered animal in Chinese culture. Emperors used the dragon as a symbol of personal strength and military power, while modern Chinese people with good luck and wealth are often associated with the dragon.

The Year of the Dragon is fifth in the Zodiac because of the dragon’s arrival for a meeting called by the Jade Emperor. Interestingly, Chinese culture depicts dragons as snake-like creatures and the snake arrived to the meeting alongside the dragon. It told the Jade Emperor the dragon was its adoptive father, and as the dragon’s son failed to show for the meeting, the Emperor made the snake sixth behind the dragon.
