Chinese New Year: What to Expect from the Year of the Dog

What do astrologers say

The Chinese calendar rotates in 60-year cycles based on 12 animals and five elements – wood, fire, earth, metal and water. 2018 is the Year of the Earth Dog. The earth is a stabilizing and preserving force, signifying a significant shift from the past two years under the fire element – the years of the Rooster (2017) and the Monkey (2016) which caused some disharmony and impulsiveness.

Astrologers promise that 2018 will bring prosperity, especially for those who, like dogs, are active, give their best and communicate with people without withdrawing into themselves. What’s more, experts predict that those who are generous to others will reap the biggest benefits throughout the year. This is because the concepts of fair play and social justice are fundamental to the Year of the Dog. In general, astrologers believe that 2018 will be a good year, however the dog’s sensitivity and loyalty can lead to nostalgia for the past, which can lead to feelings of sadness and fragility.

Since the dog is full of energy, the coming year offers abundant business opportunities. However, there will be an increased risk of high blood pressure, stress, exhaustion and other health problems. Astrologers warn that 2018 (especially for those born in the year of the Dog) is the right time to finally pay attention to your health.

Experts say that people born in the years of the Dragon, Sheep and Rooster will have a difficult time, while those born in the years of the Rabbit, Tiger and Horse will have a very auspicious time. Now is the time to try launching new business projects or changing your lifestyle, because it will be easy for you to consider all the pros and cons of your upcoming business and choose the best.

In addition, the year is very favorable for friendship and marriage, but some family misunderstandings are expected. True, in the long run, the dog’s unfailing loyalty will bring positivity to the relationship.

What the mediums say

Laurier Tiernan, who has been studying spiritualism since 2008, says 2018 will be a year of paradox, upheavals and pleasant surprises. He believes that people will feel like they are depleted in almost every aspect of life, and advises avoiding the feeling that they are already doing well. Tiernan recommends not being afraid of change and being open to the new, as “our best reality may be something we can’t imagine.”

This idea is also evident in numerology, which celebrates 2018 as a special year. When you add numbers, you get 11, one of the three basic numbers in science.

“11 is the number of a master who can do magic, so it’s important that people go spiritual more than ever before in every aspect of their lives,” says Tiernan. “The universe is asking us to rise to the dominant consciousness as much as possible.”

Tiernan believes that our dreams come true when our time and efforts match the movement of the universe, which means that 2018 is the year when our most cherished dreams can become a reality. All you need is opportunities, openness and activity.

What to do to make dreams come true

Tiernan advises making a list of your desires and rereading it every morning.

“Get out your list and visualize it speaking to the universe, showing that you are ready. And start your day,” he says. “People doing this will be surprised that they feel supported by the universe in 2018, much like they have a jet pack of fuel.”

It is very important in the year of the Dog to open your thinking to the new opportunities that the Universe will provide you.
