Angry Dragons And Other Creatures Of Spring

Angry Dragons And Other Creatures Of Spring

In the Daoist tradition, the dragon is the symbol of spring’s explosive energy. The dragon is the mystical being of change and is connected to the wood element which is connected to sinews, strength and anger. In many cultures the Vernal Equinox is the beginning of spring, but in Daoist schools, spring begins much earlier (in February) and the peak energy hits at the point the earth is half-way on its journey back toward the sun (when the days and nights are of equal length).
