Myth Buster 3: People Born in the Year of the Dragon Should Wear Pearls.

Published February 16, 2012 by jptan2012

I’ve met a lot of people born under the year of dragon who thought that wearing pearls is extremely lucky. They got this belief because a lot of the images of the dragon is portrayed carrying or biting a pearl.

To answer them, I usually tell them what I know about pearls. Pearls are one of the oldest known precious ‘stone’ known to mankind. But technically, a pearl is really not a stone because it’s an organic matter derived from oysters. The pearl symbolizes purity and innocence, which is why it is sewn on bridal gowns to signify the purity and innocence of the bride. The pearl is also said to be a ‘teardrop’ of the moon which symbolizes Yin energy.

Living people are Yang, and while it is always good to have a little Yin wearing a Yin energy like a pearl is not advisable. Furthermore, as symbol of purity and innocence, when worn by ‘single’ person ensures this energy that the person remains ‘pure and innocent’ in relation to marriage, thus it inhibits your marriage luck. Being a teardrop of the moon, it is also said since its the ‘teardrop’ of the moon a pearl brings sadness to its wearer.

So in my view wearing pearls are bot advisable specially for somebody who’s still single and wishes to have marriage luck. Maybe the only exception to this rule is for people whose basket element base on their Bazi is totally lacking of the water element and is high on fire element.

To be safe avoid wearing pearls whether you’re born in the year of the dragon or not.
