Every year in the Chinese astrological calendar is characterized by an animal. Beginning on 16 February 2018, the year of the dog will be great for everyone born in this sign.
The Chinese astrological wheel has 12 different animals and each new year the animal changes with the next one. It is known that the animal that “ruled” in your year of birth tells a lot about your character, but in fact that’s not all. Each year the animal is defined by one of the five elements. In Chinese astrology these elements are water, metal, wood, fire, and earth. The elements give the animals another meaning, a uniqueness that makes the year even more unique. This year is celebrated the year of earthen dog, something that has not happened since 1958.
In Chinese astrology it is believed that you inherit the properties of the animal that governs the year in which you were born. For people born in the year of the dog, these are great news. The dogs are known for their loyalty, endless love, positive attitude and, most importantly, their kindness. These qualities make them one of the favorite animals of humans. Dogs fight for what they believe and always help those who need help.
On the other hand, they can be stubborn and rigid with their beliefs. They are easily disappointed when things do not go along plan. They are prone to sadness and pessimism. They are also known for judging others who can not be measured with them.
It is believed that people born in the year of the dog are most compatible with those of the year of the rabbit, and the least compatible with people born in the year of the dragon, goat or cock. Some famous “dogs” are David Bowie, Judy Garland, Prince William, Elvis Presley and Freddie Mercury.
Earth dogs are valuable, disciplined, and patient. They are not known for having acquired wealth early in life, and are happiest in later years. No matter how focused on their goals, they will never compromise on their values. These people cause admiration and contempt for anyone who will cross the road with theirs. Whether they are loved by others, they are always respected for being honest with themselves.
Earth dogs have a clean soul and spend their lives without interfering with the other’s and believe that we all need to live and let others live. This separates them from other dogs who judge more.
The best-known examples of earthen dogs are Madonna and Michael Jackson. Michael Jackson is known for always following his pace and stubbornly trying to achieve his goals. He never gave up on himself no matter how many people cheered for his failure. In life, Madonna is an example of these qualities.
