listening to one another. Things should become better if
everyone feels they are being heard.
It’s a rocky road this year for the Monkey. You may feel
like hard work and increased efforts don’t seem to bring
you any closer to your goals in this Dog Year. Stepping
back and rethinking your strategy may lead to a better
approach. Consulting with trusted sources may also prove
n Metal Monkey: Be espe-
cially cautious with people
who talk sweetly to your face,
but are more than willing to
stab you in the back if it bene-
fits them. Trust your intui-
tion and use it as a guide.
n Water Monkey: Find
time to get out and socialize, Water Monkey. It may help
you unwind from daily stress and keep your spirits up
during the bumpy year.
n Wood Monkey: Make sure to get enough rest, eat
well, exercise, and spend some time outdoors this year. A
healthy lifestyle will greatly improve the year’s outcome.
n Fire Monkey: Avoid risky investments or financial
schemes, as they will likely decimate your finances. Now
is a good time to listen to people you trust and remember
the axiom that if it sounds too good to be true, it probably
n Earth Monkey: An opportunity to enhance your life
or make a big change will present itself during the Year of
the Dog. Though you should not act without due
consideration, also avoid taking too long and missing out.
Though the Year of the Rooster is exiting and won’t be
back for many years, don’t despair! The Year of the Dog
may throw a bump or two your way, but on the whole it
promises to be a good one. Be sure to keep informed on
projects to avoid missteps.
n Metal Rooster: 2018 is
not the most auspicious year
to make big changes. There-
fore, it may be advisable to
kick the can down the road. If
you are not able to wait, be
sure to seek advice from your
trusted inner circle.
n Water Rooster: The Year of the Dog should bring an
amazing array of social activities, so get out there and
enjoy yourself, Water Rooster! You may meet new and
fascinating people; at the very least, you’ll receive some
much needed down time.
n Wood Rooster: Start that project that you’ve been
dreaming about, Wood Rooster. Your excellent organiza-
tional skills will help you see it through to completion and
then you can crow with satisfaction.
n Fire Rooster: Reach out and use your charm and
great sense of humor to network with new people this
year. While expanding your social circle, remember to
take care of your personal relationships, too.
n Earth Rooster: Obstacles may temporarily block a
project of yours this Dog Year, but seeking advice from
experienced individuals should lead the way to success.
Be sure to acknowledge the assistance or an offer of help in
the future might not be extended.
Jobs, contracts, community – explore
opportunities for the new year.
Woof, woof, it’s finally your year, Dog! After a rough
Year of the Rooster, your fortunes are looking up at last.
It’s a great time to set your sights on long-desired goals or
even to sniff out a new and
n Metal Dog: During your
fast-paced year, Metal Dog,
don’t forget to pay attention to
those in your pack who may
be silently hurting or in need.
A helping hand or a
sympathetic ear could go a
long way to making them feel better and getting them
back on their feet.
