What Will the Year of the Dog Bring You?

Today is Chinese New Year and marks the start of the Year of the Dog – one of the 12 signs of the Chinese zodiac.

Unlike Western astrology, each sign lasts for a whole year and each year takes the name of an animal whose characteristics colour and influence everything that happens for the next 12 months. 

This is the Year Of The Dog, signalling a fortunate 12 months ahead for most of those born in the ‘dog’ years of 1935, 1947, 1959, Jan 1971, 1982, 1994 and 2006. It also influences the fortunes of the other 11 animal signs, depending on their relationship with the dog.

Here, Kay Tom, a Leicester-based master in feng shui and horoscopes at The Energy Specialist, reveals exactly what the next 12 months holds in store for each of the 12 signs of the zodiac.

It is worth remembering that unlike the Roman calendar new year, the lunar new year changes, although it usually falls between January 21 and February 20.

 This means that those born in the early part of the calendar year are actually assigned the Chinese zodiac of the previous year.

The Rat: The cunning Rat will be prosperous this year if he teams up with the Ox as a partner

The Rat: 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008

This year the Rat’s eye is on the money. A cunning fellow who knows how to duck and dive in order to reach his goal and one to avoid confrontation at all cost, bringing a year of negotiation and diplomacy in order to reap the ultimate reward.

The Ox: 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009

A sedately fellow who takes everything in his stride as he has the foresight to see further than the end of his nose. The Ox also understands the money energy this year but this is discreet money that very few know about. The Rat and the Ox make an excellent team in the financial world particularly on long term investments.

The Tiger: 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010

Anyone born in the year of the tiger, the horse, the monkey, the rooster and the rabbit all connect well with the dog and understand how to be part of his team.

For these people there is tremendous potential t go forth and multiply in 2018 because they have the energy of the leader watching their back.

This opportunity is strong for the Tiger as he has bright ideas of his own as well as a natural ability to know when to pounce and seize the moment. The entrepreneur of the year, the Tiger always has his eye on his prey and knows exactly when to pounce.

In fact, the time is now so a world of opportunity awaits the Tiger this year. It is simply a case of keeping a sharp eye out in order to spot his chance and to be certain not to miss it.

The Rabbit: 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011

A social fellow who likes the good things in life and who will not be disappointed this year. There are opportunities for the rabbit to advance his career and ultimately improve his financial status in doing so. 2018 is also a good year for fertility and producing the next generation for the Rabbit.

The Dragon: 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012

The Chinese animal that needs to keep his head down this year and not make any important changes to his life is the dragon. The dragon totally opposes the dog’s energy and is therefore against the leader.

It is advisable that anyone born in the year of the dragon wears either a red  string around his waist or wears red underwear or red socks all year for protections from any challenges the dog may want to throw his way.

The Dragon: Dragons are advised to keep a low-profile due to their clash with the Dog

Low profile is the name of the game for the Dragon this year. Undoubtedly the Dragon is a well-­respected character and one to always be ahead of the field but everyone deserves some time off and 2018 is an ideal time to do so.

It will be a wise Dragon who rests on his laurels and even takes a sabbatical this year.

The Snake: 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013

The Snake will do well to stay close to home this   year, in other words, all he needs is in the palm of his hands. His greatest allies are his neighbours and with the right collaboration success can be his by the end of the year.

The Horse: 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014

The Horse is  happiest when his spirit free, running wild with his mane flowing in the wind. He will do very well this year if he teams up with the Tiger.

Together they are formidable, can climb any mountain and achieve their goals through grit and determination.

The horse: The horse will be most successful if he teams up with the Tiger this year

The Sheep: 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015

A high achiever this year with success in examinations or legal matters. The sheep is a discreet player never inclined to blow his own trumpet too often and not one with high levels of ambition yet when he does achieve he is thrilled and proud. This year will not disappoint.

The Monkey: 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016

The playful Monkey and his neighbour the Rooster work very well together with the Dog to form a powerful team that shouts leadership. Far be it for the Monkey to want to take on too much responsibility as he is a great advocate of a work/life balance he nevertheless knows how to action a  plan and bring it to life.

A great year for the Monkey to use his intelligence and progress his career. A great year for fertility and reproduction too.

The Rooster: 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017

The Rooster: The confident Rooster possesses a strong sense of duty that will come in handy

A confident fellow with his feet firmly on the ground so one with a reliable voice and solid advice. The Rooster is the spokesman of the team and one to rise  to great heights with his confidence, his leadership and his strong sense of duty.

The Rooster will go far this year, most  especially if he accepts the contribution to the cause from the Monkey and the Dog. He would be a fool not to get involved with these guys.

The Dog: 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018

The dog’s vulnerability is procrastinate too long and miss that opportunity so be sharp-eyed this year in order to maximise on his own potential.

Basically, say yes to everything because there is always more depth to what is on the  table in 2018, that is not apparent on first sight.

The Pig: 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019

The trustworthy and diligent Pig holds the purse strings to both money and power in 2018. The money is especially dominant if he joins forces with the team of the Rat and the Ox. The financial gains can then lead him into a world of regard and respect in the workplace if he joins forces with the Tiger.

There is  immense opportunity for growth and status this year for the Pig if he learns to accept the advice of others.
