On February 16th 2018, the Chinese New Year will begin to the barking of the dog. Not to worry, this bark is an excited, playful, friendly greeting, not a threatening one. The global influences of the dog are beneficial to us in many ways. Always protective of the home, we should see those who threaten us backing down rather than facing the bite of a building defense plan. Real estate and property is favored during dog years, so if you are an agent or thinking about buying or selling a home, fortune will favor you. The dog does not favor speculation, so money and investments, should be made only in areas tried and true. In the domestic arena, if you have been thinking of tying the knot, this year favors lasting commitment and happiness. The robust energy given off this year should help in all issues of health & healing.
A relatively trouble free year for the rat. Creative energy is on the rise and many social activities will occupy your time. Although no major financial windfall is to be expected, this should prove to be a harmonious and pleasant year.
