Life in 2018 - Slow Down and Take It Easy

The Year of the Brown Earth Dog brings a time when those born in the Year of the Monkeys will need to slow down a bit and take a deep breath. It’s not the time for hard work, it’s the time to release stress and take it easier.

Dear Monkeys, 2018 may present periods where you may feel agitated and irritable, so please do try to control your emotions just a tad, otherwise there will be a price for speaking out without thinking. No matter what happens the Universe is not ‘out to get you’. You need to think logically during 2018 to make the most of opportunities and avoid conflict.

According to your 2018 Chinese Astrology, this year you will have strong inclinations towards impulsivity. You can change your mind at the drop of a hat and then say you intended to do so and so all along. While it’s great to be flexible sometimes, don’t overdo it as the energy of this Dog Year will not support wishy washy behaviour. Be strong in your beliefs after you have examined all options and you’re certain of what you really want.

This year don’t be a naughty Monkey by being unduly harsh or trying to manipulate people into doing your will… the energies of the Dog Year will come back and give you an unpleasant nip on the bottom. Instead plan for the long term future and use your restless energy to take on interesting challenges that help others as well as your good simian self. You can work with the canine energies of loyalty, honesty and hard work, which will stand you in good stead for the future.

Love in 2018 - Look for Long Term Reliability

According to the Chinese Monkey Horoscope, 2018 is likely to be a year of soberness in love. Although not wildly exciting, there is still room for caring and sharing. Monkeys can look for a sensible and mature partner who will not let them down, rather than an excitingly hot match. This year long term reliability trumps short term flings.

The Year of the Brown Earth Dog… this year is also not fantastic for socialising and dealing with people in general. Dear Monkeys, do try to have some time out on your own in nature. Get away from all your devices and spend time in silence listening to the beat of your own heart. In this way, you will learn to march to the beat of your own drum and not put too much store in what others around you say.

Money in 2018 - Train and Study for Future Rewards

According to the 2018 Monkey Chinese Horoscope, this is a year to be careful in finances. Do not take unnecessary risks as Monkeys could possibly jump too soon. Remember, to look before you leap!

It is possible to have better financial luck if you deal with someone with Wood energy that is born in Yang WOOD years ending in a 4 (e.g. 1964) or Yin WOOD years ending in a 5 (e.g. 1965).

Monkeys need to use their innate cleverness and intelligence to get ahead financially this year, with a good dose of wisdom. Get rich quick schemes are not likely to work for Monkeys this year, so please do think about the long term results rather than short sighted gains.

According to your 2018 Chinese Astrology, this is an average year for career and again Monkeys should take a long term view. You might think about training and study which will yield rewards further down the track. Position yourself now to take advantage of future opportunities in business and career.

2018 Monkey Chinese Horoscope Summary

The Year of the Brown Earth Dog is a time for you to be still and quiet.

Opportunities may arise, but something always seems to act to restrict you from doing what you want. The Universe does want you to succeed, but at the right time, not necessarily at the time of your choosing. Be patient and sit back waiting for the right opportunity at the right time.

Be cautious of respiratory ailments and as soon as you feel a tickle in your throat or chest, take precautionary measures. You might try echinacea, garlic or even a herbal tonic. Of course if you’re concerned about anything health-wise, then do talk to a medical professional.

You may be feeling a bit flat and unmotivated this year and that’s ok. Don’t push yourself too hard to do stuff, remember that slow and steady wins the race. Bushwalking, or walking in nature generally will be helpful for you this year, especially when you feel irritable or frustrated because things aren’t working out. Try to practise patience. All the best for 2018 dear Monkeys and take it slow and easy.
