Each year in Chinese astrology is represented by an animal and one of five elements; Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wood. The year 2018 is represented by the EARTH DOG element.

According to the Chinese horoscope 2018, the Year of the Earth Dog 2018 is thought to be favourable in financial aspects but may prove difficult with regards to health. 

It's a good year for long term healthy lifestyle changes and the start of new business ventures. 

Find the balance between working, playing hard and making time for self-care, rest and rejuvenation.

Traits associated with the Earth Dog include, 'stable, brave, fair, honest, practical, reliable, kind, industrious and loyal.' Sounds good to me!

Some famous dogs- Winston Churchill, Elvis Presley, Madonna, Mother Teresa and Michael Jackson.

Whether you're a Snake, Rooster, Dragon, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Dog, Pig, Rabbit, Tiger, Ox or Rat, the Year of the Earth Dog should be a rewarding year.

Set intentions to take care of your health and well being e.g. daily meditation, clean eating, regular exercise, heaps of water, monthly acupuncture tune ups and other regular treatments.

Remember it's a favorable time for new ventures and change; believe in your dreams and yourself.

Today is a new year, new moon and time for new beginnings. Reassess what you want to attract, create and receive this year and go for it.

 Best wishes,
