2018 Chinese zodiac forecast for Year of the Dog

2018 Chinese zodiac forecast for Year of the Dog

It is the year of the Earth Dog and following tradition, it is usually known as your Grand Duke year, which is usually not a smooth year for those born in the Year of the Dog.

However, what it really means is there might be more stress than usual, more pressure, more challenges and a little bit of emotional uncertainties. It does not usually mean major problems.


Despite it being a Grand Duke year, there are two auspicious stars that those born in the Year of the Dog can take advantage of the energies coming their way to turn 2018 into an awesome year.


Elegant Seal star is good for those in the creative line, for example, designers, architects, writers, authors and artists. Even if you are not in an artistic pursuit but you intend to go into the creative field, then this is a good star for it.

Or if you pick up a subject that is related to arts or creativity, or you are trying to design something new, the Elegant Seal star is a good star for these purposes.

However, if you do not intend to pick up a new skill or side activitiy, this star has a side effect - loneliness. The Elegant Seal star is also not good for communication and connection.


This star means that for this year, a lot of people will be paying attention to you or observing what you do. So if you are one of those who like attention, this is one of those years when people will pay attention to you in your work or school performance.

It is therefore possible to take this opportunity to play out full force this year.

However, if you're shy and don't like attention, you'll find a lot of unwanted attention and may find it frustrating.


There are four negative stars, which indicate some emotional problems. The Grand Duke star affects older folks more, so do take care of your health if you are of a senior age.

There may be injuries this year for those born in the Year of the Dog. Take some care and do some medical checkups. Also, take care of stomach issues, digestive issues, and muscle and skin.


Your work may not be appreciated despite a lot of effort. Sometimes people around you may not take notice of your hard work. Also, you may not feel a connection to the loved ones around you.

This does not really cause physical harm but may cause a little bit of emotional loneliness.

It is not a big problem and does not really affect your wealth or career performance. In fact, you'll have more energy in 2018 and if you put that in your career or work, you may have a great 2018.
