The Three Dragons Layout
In Chinese culture the Dragon is generally considered a sign of great luck and power. However in mahjong, the red, green, and white dragons represent three distinct influences that can affect your life. The Dragon Reading creates a relationship between sets of tiles to each Dragon, to explore how the 3 Dragons will influence you now and in the near future.

Generally the East Wind tile represents the querent. The tiles nearest the East tile in a reading have added importance.
The Tortoise tile suggests impatience with the time certain aspects are taking to play themselves out. It is likely any open issues you may have will need extra attention and patience to resolve properly. The Tortoise also symbolizes long life.
The Mushroom tile represents eternal life and oddity. It gets these attributes from the fact that mushrooms in nature always seem to regenerate and often popup where they are unexpected.
