Chinese New Year of the Dog will begin on Friday, February 16, 2018 This is the new moon day of the first lunar month. The Chinese calendar combines solar, lunar and 60 Stem-Branch counting system, that uses Yin-Yang, the Five Elements (Metal, Water, Wood, Fire and Earth) and 12 animals to describe the sequence and progression of the seasons. The Five elements are connected to five colors - White, Black, Green, Red, and Brown. Chinese use the color animal name to count the year. The name of 2018 is the Yang Male Earth Dog. Brown is connected to Earth. Therefore, 2018 is called Brown Earth Dog Year.

2018 is the 4716th Chinese Year. It is a Male Earth Dog. Male Earth is connected to dry soil, wall, mound or mountains. The I-Ching sign of 2018 Earth Dog is mountains over mountains. The mountains of 2018 are related to stability, slowness, stubborn, laziness and conservativeness. If you are too lazy and lack a diligent spirit, then you will miss career or money opportunity. 2018 will be a very strong Earth. That implies the events related to land, real estate, county territory, agriculture, earthquake, mineral and the Earth will be more active than before. In Chinese astrology, Earth is also connected to stability, meditation and religion. Many people will be interested in spiritual or religious study.

The mountain of 2018 appearing in the front of us means something is blocking our view or our path. That's a sign of obstacle. We need to climb over it to see the other world. So we need to find a flat road around the mountains to find our way. Either way, we need to take extra effort to reach our destination. Therefore, 2018 is a challenge year for many people. We need to use our wisdom to find the better way to conquer the mountains. If you can do it, then you will be ahead of many others. If you cannot, then you will behind the world.
