md 5a56f5c11763e

Chinese New Year of the Brown Dog begins on Friday, the 16th of February 2018 and ends on February 4, 2019.

The Dog is the 11th sign of the Chinese zodiac and this will be a universal 11 year. It can be a very eventful year with many changes all over the world.

The Dog is an ethical and idealistic sign, and this year will bring increased social awareness and interest in society’s less fortunate. Any tendencies to take, will be replaced by a widespread sentiment of generosity and selflessness. In general, we will all be imbued with the Dog’s keen sense of right and wrong.

The Dog year makes us take a look at our human conditions, education, morals, social life, health and caring for our elders as well as security. We will need to show tolerance and empathy towards others, with the demand for fairness and a better standard of living.

The Dog is a symbol of intelligence and protection, and 2018 can be a fragile year. We could see many uprisings throughout the world. It can be a turbulent and troubling year in all aspects of life, but it is also a year of less affluent areas of the world coming together and introducing new ways to help the less fortunate, and hopefully we will see more of a fair balance between the rich and the poor.

This is a good year to make lifestyle changes, diet, smoking, drinking and junk food. The true dangers associated with these things will be brought into the spotlight.

Dog years can bring many changes, good and bad. Economically, they are normally growth years although it can also bring collapse of major institutions and large adjustments in the economy, so take care with investments in 2018.

The emergence of more universal values of empathy and social justice should wake up and feed this collective awareness.
People will focus on real estate, agriculture, environment, territory integrity, religious or spiritual areas.
If you can climb on the mountain of the Dog, then you can see much further for the future.
Earth Dog year is a time for honesty, fairness, and to cultivate integrity of character. Dog sniffs out the truth, corruption is exposed, and the underdog is championed. The Earth element brings healing, stability, and focus on nutrition.

Hopefully the year brings more wagging and less barking or biting, which is something Dogs can do.
