The Year of the Earth Dog
In Chinese astrology each zodiac year ( rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig) is not just associated with an animal sign, but also one of five elements: Gold (Metal), Wood, Water, Fire, and Earth…the year of 2018 meets the element of Earth, so 2018 is a Earth Year. During the Year of the Dog the element of Earth is significantly more prominent because Dog’s nature strongly resonates with the Earth element. For people whose Earth element is predominant in their Chinese life horoscope, a particular stability through the entire year of 2018 should allow them to organize their personal and professional life more confidently and efficiently.
According to the precepts of Wu Xing, or the creative cycle of the 5 elements, Earth creates Metal. In order to gain joyful fulfillment throughout the year, it’s auspicious to show solidarity and brotherhood, so that the noble and vigorous righteousness of the Earth Dog is converted into material and spiritual wealth.
Dog Years are not conducive to waste and unnecessary expenses. For success, in love as in work, depends primarily on the quality of the communication between people, and learning that being selfless and generous can bring the promise of a more generous reward in return.
Even though the Year of the Earth Dog can be very good for financial aspects, but from a health point of view, can be precarious. Actually, in the year of the dog, all zodiac signs will want to pay special attention to their health. 2018 is an ideal time to start eating healthy, doing sports and getting rid of bad habits. Have a great year, and remember stay Chi-ful!
