Life in 2018 - Be Proactive. Plan for Next Year.

The Year of the Brown Earth Dog brings a time when those born in the Year of the Dog will need to be careful in various matters. According to Chinese tradition, it is considered unlucky when the zodiac animal year you were born in comes around the zodiac to the same Chinese animal year. As this is the Year of the Brown Earth Dog, this year is considered by those who follow Chinese astrology, as being unlucky for Dogs. Bad luck mostly applies when the animal sign gets a bit too uppity, so advice is generally to keep your head down and stay out of trouble. When you meet your animal sign in the 12 year cycle, this is known as Ben Nian Ming. As the Chinese Zodiac is divided into 12 animal signs, everyone gets a go!

There is a remedy however, in that you can turn away from the imaginary star known as the “God of Age” and do a ritual. Apparently, it is believed that this God, also known as Tai Sui, is offended by a our personal Zodiac year. You can read about it here.

When I look back over my lifetime, I cannot see a pattern of bad luck every 12 years, in fact good things have happened in the 12th year, often I have stepped into new positions. It might be that you feel restricted in some way and therefore decide to do something about it, which could ultimately be to your benefit. But each to his own, believe whatever you choose.

During the Year of the Brown Earth Dog, you may find finances need a higher level of control. You may be planning for something and need to save money to accomplish your dream. It could be a new home, business or something that requires a sacrifice at the beginning so you can eventually get what you want in the longer term.

The Cosmos is pushing you dear Dogs this year to be proactive about what you want. You will be protected to some extent, if you make small errors in judgement. Don’t push your luck though, because there is not much room for absolute stupidity. Take it easy and try to relax a bit this year as next year is likely to be much busier. You’re at the end of something and the beginning of something else… there’s a new start coming.

Dear Dogs, 2018 may present periods where you may feel stressed due to trying to deal with everything, but do know that everything that happens is for your ultimate long term benefit. Remember, no pain – no gain.
