February 16, 2018 will be the start of the Year of the Earth Dog. Here are three things you need to know about the new energy coming in 2018.
- Earth years (and Earth years always come in pairs, so 2018 and 2019) are when we focus on practical matters. We put our attention on finances, security, and living simply. The last set of Earth years was 2008/2009. And yes, if you were wondering, it was Earth years in 1928 and 1929. That doesn’t necessarily mean there will be a stock market crash but I wouldn’t rule it out. I also see Astrological aspects forming in late 2018 and 2019 that could be the peak of the real estate market and signal a drop. What do we do? We prosper during this time by being flexible and creative. More about that in future blog posts.
- Dog years are when connections with others rise to be the most important and most helpful thing you can do in your life. These days we are connected virtually but more isolated physically. 2018 will bring you opportunities to connect socially and professionally. Don’t hide at home. Find friends and colleagues and see them in the real world.
- Whether the energy of Earth Dog is compatible with your own sign or not you can still succeed. The reason we study Astrology is so we know where the smooth roads are and when we’re going to hit the bumps. If the map of 2018 says you have challenges ahead then you know where you’re going to have to put in the effort. Or if you read it’s a lucky year for you then don’t waste the luck by doing nothing. Use the positive energy and take chances. Want to know more? My new book is on Amazon (presale until November 15th). Chinese Astrology 2018 Year of the Earth Dog.
