Good news - 2018 is the Year of the Dog! Finally, dogs get the recognition they deserve. Year of the Dog is Feb. 16, 2018 to Feb 4, 2019.
Life in the Year of the Dog is good. To us dog people, though, every year is Year of the Dog.
Chinese Year of the Dog
In Chinese astrology, each year is related to a zodiac animal (rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig.)
The last Dog Year was 12 years ago - 2006. Before that, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982 and 1994.
Born in the Year of the Dog, you are one lucky Dog.
Characteristics of a Dog (or Dog person)
Chinese astrology says Dogs are honest and loyal, the truest friends and most reliable partner. A Dog’s most defining characteristic is loyalty. They will never abandon their friends, family or work. Honest and just, they are popular in social circles.
But you knew that - in any year, but especially in the Year of the Dog.
Everyone needs a Dog friend for advice and help. They are also good at helping others find and fix their bad habits.
Seriously, Chinese astrologists say this! But you knew that, too. Dogs are the universal truth.
Despite how they act, Dogs are worried and anxious inside. However, they will not let this stop them. Once they decide on something, no one can persuade them against it. Know any Dogs like that?!
Brown Earth Dog Year - 2018
In Chinese astrology each zodiac year 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 element of Earth, so 2018 is a Earth Dog Year. We haven't had an Earth Dog year since 1958.
The Chinese Horoscope 2018 predicts that this year of the Brown Earth Dog is going to be a good year in all respects, but it will also be an exhausting year.
You will be happy, yet frustrated, rested, yet tired, cheerful, yet dull!
Dog Year advice to humans
According to Chinese astrology, 2018 is a very good year regarding financial aspects, but a little difficult from a health point of view.
Planning, postponing and negligence are words you will need to remove from your vocabulary this year.
Refreshed and regenerated, the Dog will accelerate the initiation of all things, but this will bring, in the same time, pressure and stress in the everyday life.
Actually, in the year of the dog, all zodiac signs will want to pay special attention to their health. Year 2018 is the ideal time to start eating healthy, doing sports and getting rid of bad habits.
