A bit more than one month has passed since we entered a new year in the western culture and now everyone is enjoying the year 2018! As Asian culture (and Chinese in particular) is very different, the New Year is not their festival to celebrate. Instead, centuries ago they invented Lunar Calendar (btw, the first known calendar in the world) and measure everything according to it. Historically, most Chinese people were doing agriculture work and to indicate the best time for harvest was the most important for them. That’s the reason why they decided to celebrate the beginning of spring as a start of a new agricultural year with a big festival called Spring Festival (which can be an equivalent of the Western’s New Year and from here we all know Spring Festival as the Chinese New Year). Lunar Calendar depends on the Moon phase and from year to year it is different from “our calendar”, that is why all Chinese festivals are fallen on different days every year. In 2018, the Chinese will celebrate Spring Festival on February 15th.
Lunar calendar has 12 zodiac animals, 5 Elements and is characterized by Yin or Yang energy (and not only an animal as most westerners think). Those who were with us all this year long, know that we are now in the year of Fire Rooster. Can you guess which year we are entering on February 15th? It is the year of the Earth Dog. Let’s see what Earth Dog will bring us in a new lunar year in our small horoscope 2018.
Dogs in 2018
According to the Chinese beliefs, the year of your zodiac animal is your unluckiest year in the whole twelve-years cycle. Nevertheless, do not be upset – just enjoy your life and be careful.
You will have more chances to gain a reward if you are initiative, take everything in your hands and just work hard. In 2018, Taisui star will help you to gain a lot from thermal power projects or cultural investments. This year will be difficult for you to get a promotion, it is recommended to be focused on your further and additional education which can help you in your future career. For Dogs who are in a business, you are suggested to focus on real estate projects, technical aspects, thermal power projects, or culture projects. But do not forget to relax and take out the stress by walking down a park or riverside.
Although Dogs will be in an active search for love or developing the current relationship in 2018, it won’t be as ideal as you want to. Men Dogs might be very successful in it but you would need a loooong time to get the relationship you want; but for ladies Dogs, they might lose their opportunities, unless they put their pride and radical nature deep inside themselves and give people around them a chance to express their feelings to them.
As 2018 is very unlucky to Dogs, they have to take extreme care of their health: be aware of injuring your legs and arms, take the best care of your respiratory system and will be easy to have a bloody accident. Your stars advise you to take long walks outside of the city or in the parks to reduce all the stress and to solve your health issues.
Pigs in 2018
In career and financial aspects, 2018 is one of the worst years. You have to be very careful dealing with your money, so no gambling, lottery, or high-risk investments this year – you can lose everything you have. Unless you invest in thermal power projects or the mineral industry. Work hard to grab your opportunities and you will be well rewarded. At work, you will easily be bullied by deputy leaders or law enforcement, which means it will be impossible to get a promotion but only work under a great pressure. For entrepreneurs it is not the best year to develop the business, however, for those who work on thermal power or mineral industry projects, or apartments for officials, you will do well.
Both female and male Pigs will have a great luck in love and relationship in 2018. For ladies it will be very easy, they find their favorite men with a good background and well behaved. Men Pigs will also find the best women for them but not that easy, your chosen one might hide her feelings deep inside, or some misunderstanding might happen due to lack of your expressions. So, do not be shy to talk about your feelings clearly with a girl you like.
In 2018, Pigs have to take more care of their health. These issues won’t happen because of the stress like for Dog, but more because of an inaccuracy. Don’t be scared, the injuries and illnesses won’t be very serious but if you want to avoid them – watch out around you, don’t do any dangerous sports and avoid drinking too much alcohol, or smoking. Instead, do long walks in the parks or along the riverside.
Rats in 2018
Rats are going to be very lucky in 2018: you might receive unexpected finances or get a reward from unpopular industries. Your bosses will like you and will give you many opportunities to show yourselves and you can get a promotion easily but you have to work really hard, don’t be passive, and you will be always under the pressure as you don’t want to fail. There will be a chance for Rats to cooperate with officials easily, especially concerning projects that involve soil and stone. Projects related to land production, mineral resources, and thermal power will see good developments.
Female Rats will meet a good partner, who is well educated, handsome and rich but won’t show it in the beginning. Male Rats won’t be as lucky as women but still, have good chances. You will need to use your initiative to make progress in your relationship.
Working all day long without stops won’t be good for your health. That’s why you will need to take a special care of it in 2018. Don’t do dangerous sports – it might cause injuries – and be very careful in daily life as you can even cut yourselves with sharp objects easily. You might feel uncomfortable in the stomach or just become too exhausted, that’s why don’t forget to do regular health checks.
Oxes in 2018
Financial and career side of life is not successful for Oxes in 2018. They will lose a lot of money because of their friends or family members’ problems. Moreover, friends and family members whom you help to solve this problem will turn it against you later. At work your relationship with colleagues will be very stressful, you should find a problem with yourself – maybe you offended someone who once helped you? Due to bad relations with colleagues, friends and family members, you will be in a big stress which will cause you problems at work and even in your entire career, you will be beaten by your competitors because you won’t be able to concentrate on your work.
This year is also not the best for your love relations: you will have a lot of competitors and even if you manage to find the right person, you will always argue and fight due to your stressful situation at work. Moreover, a new relationship can cause a money loss or even risk being injured.
Unfortunately, your health conditions will be also not the best in 2018. You might have many health problems due to your stress and fights with other people, also there might be some hidden problems in your respiratory system or kidneys and take good care of your heart and stomach.

Tigers are going to be very lucky in 2018. Be ready to gain unexpectable financial reward and opportunities with partners which will bring you a lot of income in the future. Don’t be afraid to play the lottery or on a stock market – that might be your lucky ticket. Male Tigers should listen to their better parts in the question of finances and career, your wife/girlfriend might be the one who will bring you a lot of luck with partners or in business in general. Although you have a little chance to get a promotion, that is the only unpleasant moment regarding your career opportunities. There will be good opportunities for you in real estate, thermal power projects, or in the culture industry, so you will do well if one of them is your career field. For employees, 2018 is the best year to build a career base – you will get a lot of support from officials and management.
Both men and women Tigers have good prospects in love. Men have a good chance to find a nice woman. And Tiger women should search for a perfect mate in your surroundings, probably the one with whom you work close is your one and only? Beware that he will think about friendship with you, so you have to be more initiative and show your feelings.
Working hard will make you feel weak, or suffer from inflammations. And you might don’t have time to go to the hospital every time you feel sick.
