A dragon is a fire breather, which means it may symbolize a part of you or of someone around you who has a fiery temper or says fiery, harmful things. But the dragon also protects its treasure so the dream may be telling you to put your guard up right now in order to protect your best interests. A dragon may also represent something in life you need to slay or conquer. Can even indicate that you are wondering how long a certain issue is going to “drag on.”
