2018 – Chinese Year of the Earth Dog, Sign by Sign. Moni Castaneda, Feng Shui expert, presents her analysis of the year to come according to the Chinese Horoscope.

In the story that explains the origin of the Chinese Horoscope, when the Jade Emperor of Heaven summoned the animals to the palace, many animals answered his call, but only the first twelve had years named after them. 2018 – Chinese Year of the Earth Dog Sign by Sign

The Dog was 11th, and it came in right after the Rooster. To get to the Jade Palace, animals had to cross a great river. The Dog crossed on its own. Being a fast runner and a great swimmer, the Dog should have arrived sooner, but it stopped along the way to play.

What Is the Dog Like?

The Dog is a very dependable animal, once you have its loyalty, it will not betray you. It has a strong sense of justice, and gets very upset when facing or witnessing injustice. This can be the Dog’s downfall, as strategy is not its strongest suit. The Dog will fight injustice whether it is the best thing to do at the time or not.

Dogs are good friends, but they are not very good at accumulating wealth, preferring to spend their resources on good times right now, or spend their time relaxing.

If a Dog wants something bad enough, it can be very persistent, but this does not happen often.

Dogs would rather avoid conflict, but if provoked, they can be vicious. They can also be judgemental, and once they have put a person “in a box,” it is hard for them to change their mind.

The Year of the Dog

The Dog is not the most ambitious sign in the Chinese Horoscope. 2018 – Chinese Year of the Earth Dog Sign by Sign

People with strong independent tendencies may have a hard time getting ahead in the Year of the Dog. All people will benefit from being part of a tribe this year. It is not a year to try to go at it alone.

Here I am sharing with you how the general energies of the year will mesh with the particular energy of your Chinese horoscope animal sign.

The Year of the Earth Dog and the Rat Sign

Year of the RatUnlike our Western perception of the Rat, in Asia this is considered a very good sign. Rats are super smart, resourceful, hard working, very good at team work, excellent survivors.

Rats tend to be selfish with everyone but their closest relatives, and this may not go well this year, when the Dog likes generalized comradery. Strong suits of Rats are their powerful individuality and ambition, and for this reason this year may be a bit frustrating, because things will not move with the speed they like. With their quick wit and eye for opportunities, Rats will do great this year if they can get others on board to work with them. In the Year of the Dog, people will be looking for leaders, and that is where Rats can have an edge.

Watch out for your strong ego. The Dog frowns on anyone’s need to be admired, and only rewards hard work. If you get any admiration this year it will be based on your performance, not on your shiny personality.

The Year of the Earth Dog and the Dragon Sign

Year of the DragonIf you are a Dragon, this year you need to watch your energy and your resources. You may be approached by many asking for your help, and your natural tendency is to always comply to requests for help. This is a great quality, but not when it depletes your own energy.

Make sure that there is a fair exchange of energy, good will or money as you help others, so that you do not end up letting others take advantage of you.

You may feel some frustration this year, because you may not get the enthusiastic responses to your ideas that you are used to get. However, if you persist, the people who follow you will be very loyal to you.

The Year of the Earth Dog and the Snake Sign

Year of the SnakeIf you were born in the Year of the Snake, your strong individuality may make this year harder than it needs to be. You don’t usually like relying on others, but think about this: if you do your due diligence, and find people you can trust, you can get farther than if you try to do things by yourself all the time.

There are people out there who can help you and would be happy to do so. You have a lot to offer them too, so in the end there will be fairness.

Unlike the Snake, the Dog is not a deep thinker, but rather kind of superficial, so while you might feel like your ideas and contributions are not valued this year, know that your skills are needed this year more than other years.

The Year of the Earth Dog and the Horse Sign

Year of the HorseIf you were born in the Year of the Horse, you probably have great work ethic. People know that once they put you in charge of a job or  a project you will not rest until it is done.

Working hard is one of your best traits, but not resting enough is your downfall.

When working with other people, give everyone the opportunity to pull their own weight. During the Year of the Dog, other people may be only too happy to let you do it all! Then you will end up exhausted and a bit resentful, which will not help your temper.

This year, follow your own instincts and do not worry about trying to impress others.

During the Year of the Dog, the Goat may find that there is not enough appreciation for her artistic abilities, because of this the Goat may feel slighted.

If you were born in the Year of the Goat, you will like the friendliness of the Year of the Dog, but you may be drawn to too much partying, that can take you away from important work you want to get done. 2018 – Chinese Year of the Earth Dog Sign by Sign

Be the Driver of Your Own Destiny

Whatever your sign is, and whatever the energetic forecast looks like for you, you CAN hold the wheel of your own destiny. The most common feedback I get from students of my online courses is this: “Now I know that I  have a hand on what happens next.”

Regardless of what happens in the world, YOU have control of what happens in YOUR HOME, and YOU have the responsibility to create spaces where your happy, harmonious life can manifest.

There are many courses, ranging from free to Feng Shui Consultant Training courses. Take a look, click on the image below: 2018 – Chinese Year of the Earth Dog Sign by Sign

It is recommended to have an image of the animal of the current year displayed in your home to help you be in tune with the energies of the year. Because the Dog likes company, it should be placed in a prominent position.

It is also a good idea to have an image of the animal of your sign AND an image of your Zodiacal sign, if you have issues with self-knowledge (your decisions seem great, but when the things you wanted become true, you are still not happy) or if you have had a hard time with love relationships. You place these 2 images together in the Wisdom, Self-Knowledge and Rest area of your home. After a breakup, these can be put in your master bedroom too. You need to know who you are before you can know who you can love!
