2018 Earth Dog Year

2018 EARTH DOG YEAR

Chinese year 4715

The new Moon in Aquarius on February 15 2018 at 1:05 pm PST, also celebrated on February 16, begins the year of the Earth Dog and the month of the exciting Wood Tiger. 

This new Moon is a solar eclipse, so what is hidden can come to light this year. Under the influence of vigilant Dog, the truth is sniffed out, and integrity is rewarded. 

Dog year is a time of fairness and equality. Controversial issues are given their due, revolutions are successful, politics are liberal, and political oppression is opposed. Justice and honesty are the values that lead to success during Dog year.

 

DOG PERSONALITY

In Chinese society, Dogs are the favored domestic animal because they are loyal to their owners. And like a Dog, those born in the year of the Dog possess the admirable canine qualities of loyalty and integrity.

Direct and frank, Dog does not pay much attention to superficial details and has little patience for frivolity. Yet Dog likes to be spontaneous. Honest and trustworthy, Dog makes an excellent friend who always takes your side. Dogs won’t hesitate to make sacrifices for people and ideas they believe in.

 

THE EARTH DOG

Of the five Taoist elements Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood, this is the year of the Earth Dog. 

Stable, honest, practical, industrious, prudent, reliable, kind, and loyal are Earth qualities. The element Earth enriches Dog’s character and adds needed stability. The Earth Dog is endowed with some of the finest qualities of all the twelve astrology animals.  Dogs can succeed in their endeavors, and possess nobility of character. They have strong opinions and are loyal to their values.

Dog is eager to help others, loves children, and enjoys all types of games and entertainment. A champion of the underdog, Dog can become self righteous and indignant when witnessing unfair treatment. Earth Dogs’ instincts give them a clear sense of right and wrong in human relationships. Reliable, sincere, and faithful Earth Dog is dedicated to justice.
