Chinese Horoscope 2018 Predictions For All Zodiac Signs
WELCOME TO THE YEAR OF THE DOG!
I am alert
Worldwide violence is why I’m here

To guide you to a more peaceful time
To protect what’s pure and eliminate crime
Defending the underdog is my game

My vision fixed on cowardice acts
My intent to stop bullies in their tracks
I stand for honor, justice and fair play
And will stop at nothing to save the day

If you’re enjoying 2018, then you’re going to love the 2018 chinese zodiac predictions. That’s right: It’s time to ring in the Chinese New Year … February 16 kicks off the Year of the Dog!
The sign of the dog is known, not surprisingly, for loyalty and generosity. Need to spill a secret? Seek out one of these honest souls and bend that expert listening ear. While Dogs themselves may be reluctant to place their trust in just anyone, once they do, members of this sign can make the best business partners and leaders. And while Dogs might enjoy life more by relaxing their exacting standards from time to time, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better or more faithful friend.
So what can we expect from the upcoming year? The Dog is an ethical and idealistic sign, and the year that bears its name will also bring increased social awareness and interest in society’s less powerful members. Any tendencies to take, take, take will be replaced by a widespread sentiment of generosity and selflessness. In general, we will all be imbued with the Dog’s keen sense of right and wrong. You can also get a feel for the year to come by checking the compatibility between your Chinese sign and the sign of the dog — the better your compatibility, the better your year.
Happy New Year and Gong Xi Fa Cai (may you have wealth and prosper)!

The Dog’s Personality
The Great Year of the Chinese zodiac consists of one year for each of the twelve signs. 2018 is the year of the Dog, the faithful friend of man. The Dog zodiac sign is said to correspond with the western sign of Aquarius, a sign of idealism and friendship. And when human friendship falls short, or financial woes reduce our means, the Dog is ever loyal. In a larger sense the sign of the Dog is associated with generosity and dedication to the greatest good for the greatest number. The Dog is the guardian of home and hearth, and those born in this Chinese year strive to protect the rights of the public to best serve progress for all.
Protection is a key word for those born in the year of the Dog. They can be unafraid and attack if they feel a loved one is threatened in any way. Sometimes they fail to thoroughly think through a situation before they leap to action. Their objective is immediate results now – no waiting and no long, drawn-out discussions or negotiations. At times the Dog may seem quiet and unassuming, but underneath they are restless in anticipation of unforeseen problems.
Above all the Dog is honest and straight-forward, and so they rarely make enemies, and friendships are solid and long-lasting. They can easily express their feelings, and can do so without embarrassing others. While these individuals are often optimistic, when they are overly so they may let themselves in for disappointment. Sometimes people are not what they seem, and the Dog may need to step back and reassess a relationship.
While these natives are open and enthusiastic, they can also be very opinionated. Others may see them as narrow-minded and stubborn in their viewpoints. Confrontations can be difficult, and the Dog may some¬times need to “run away” and seek a quiet environment in which to soothe their feelings. Dog natives may need to warm up slowly to new ideas, and learn to trust others a little more.
To help relieve stress Dogs should be physically active. This can greatly help relieve their irrational fears, and so long as they are creating something new or cleaning up the old they can be much more even tem¬pered. They need to be realistic in their exacting standards, and some¬times settle for something a little less than their expectations. Their need for personal perfection can often be daunting to others, especially a spouse or significant other!
The Dog’s best time of day is between 7:00 and 9:00 pm, as they seek a place to be quietly on guard, and where they can quickly alert others to problems. Rabbit, Tiger and Horse people are likely to be active this year, and will play prominent roles in the lives of Dogs.

General Predictions For The Year Of The Dog 2018
Never underestimate the power of the Dog. He may look like he’s sleeping or uninterested, but nothing could be further from the truth. The Dog is a loyal and trusted friend, a peacemaker with depth and great solutions that can turn chaotic space back to order and heading down the long road to recovery.
The Dog realizes how dependent society is on its environment. As the Dog Year 2018 unfolds, a greater feeling of nostalgia, melancholy and discontent will manifest itself unless we contribute as a society to saving our planet. The Year of the Dog 2018 will put greater emphasis on understanding and promoting awareness, while encouraging us to face anyone trying to destroy our planet’s purity.
Politically it will be a wait, watch and stand-on-guard kind of year. Any country bold enough to step out of line without just cause will be persecuted. This is a year of justice and fair play.
Countries around the world must bring home their troops to protect and serve their own turf. This year is the time to revitalize and prepare for the ultimate showdown should it threaten the planet environmentally, economically, medically or through terrorism. The Dog’s motto will be “prepare to protect what is most precious.”
Worldwide we should realize that we have much to be thankful for, and therefore a great deal to guard and protect. By sticking to basics and not getting sidetracked by controversial issues, we can subscribe to a better future. The countries willing to tighten purse strings to lower the world deficit will be the ones who progress during the year of the Dog.
Hard work and serious commitment will be required combined with intellectual and physical challenges so that it once again won’t be a year for real happiness and easy go lucky.
The big challenges of 2018 will be caused by an overall limited flexibility that will reduce chances for some greater success.
Planet Earth is undergoing many changes that will continue to shape the future. With transiting Pluto moving through the constellation of Capricorn, we will continue to experience natural changes that affect us worldwide. March, April, July, August, November and December will be subject to events that will alter the future.
