Today, February 16th 2018, marks the beginning of the Chinese Year of the Earth Dog, which comes around only once every 60 years. The twelve signs of the Chinese zodiac are all animals seen in nature, except the mythological dragon. The signs are cycled through and repeated every twelve years. The Dog is the eleventh sign. Additionally, each year is designated by one of five elements: metal, wood, water, fire, and earth.
People born in the Year of the Dog possess the best traits of human nature. They are honest, friendly, faithful, loyal, smart, decisive, unafraid of difficulties in life and have a strong sense of responsibility. They enjoy harmonious relationships with those around them. Dogs’ lucky numbers are 3, 4, and 9, and unlucky numbers are 1, 6, and 7. Their lucky colours are red, green, and purple.
Some famous Earth Dogs include Madonna, Prince, Michael Jackson and Andrea Bocelli. Other people born under the sign of the Dog include Steven Spielberg, Justin Bieber, Elvis Presley, Donald Trump and Mother Teresa.
According to Chinese astrology, 2018 is going to be a very good year for financial matters, but a little difficult from a health point of view. Advice for all the zodiac signs is to “take care of yourself”.
So, whether you’re a Snake, Rooster, Dragon, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Dog, Pig, Rabbit, Tiger, Ox or Rat, the Year of the Earth Dog should be an overall rewarding year. It’s a good time for new ventures so believe in yourself and your dreams. Go out and “fetch” destiny. Just don’t forget to look after yourself, even if that just means letting yourself sleep in sometimes!
