the "DOG" to Usher in the Year of Dog in 2018
The year 2018 is ruled by the Earth Dog. The
foundation of the year is determined by the four pillars chart of
the year. The four pillars for 2018 Year of Dog is made up of Wu
Xu (year pillar), Jia Yin (month pillar ), Ding Mao (day pillar)
and Gui Mao (hour pillar). The "heavenly stem" and "earthly
branch" is wu and xu respectively. Both represent Yang Earth.
Yang Earth is associated with big rocks which translates to hardship
and stubbornness. Thus hard to be removed obstacles are in store
for 2018. The year is missing in metal element and excess of wood
element. Wealth creation which is represented by metal element is
thus missing for the year. However, resources being represented
by wood element are available to make the year a successful year.
The characteristics and traits of the dog
will be reflected in the daily lives of everyone throughout the
Year of the Dog. The dog is the most loyal and faithful zodiac among
the twelve, therefore the year will be filled with subordinates
being loyal to superiors. The dog win many hearts because of their
honesty and faithfulness, which means in general people will be
friendly, supportive and carry out proper conducts to enable success.
Friends from other zodiacs usually pamper the dog. The dog's life
is usually smoothsailing due to its good nature, well built character
and activeness, thus translating the year to a less aggravating
year. The dog love friends and play a lot, therefore it is unlikely
that there will be any war for the year, except for some small bickerings.
One setback though, because the dog is overly faithful, it means
people might face betrayal in 2018.
Next, "Lap Chun" is the day marking
the first of the 24 divisions of the solar year which denotes the
start of Spring. It is the time when the Sun reaches the position
that is 315 degrees of the celestial longitude. This year, Lap Chun
falls on 4th February 2018, which comes earlier than the lunar new
year which falls on the 16th February 2018. This phenomenon is known
as a "blind year". In a year with no lap chun (eg in 2018),
it is always considered to be lucky to invite in the animal sign
of the year together with "100 spring motif" into the
home to effectively capture the annual prosperous chi derived from
the characteristics of the zodiac. This will in turn create good
financial harvest to make up for the missing lap chun.
Everyone is encouraged to display the dog
figurine in the NORTHWEST corner of your living room to bring you
luck in the following aspects:
Also worth taking note that in the Year of Dog, the rabbit motif
plays an extremely crucial part in paving way for an amazing year.
The rabbit is especially lucky in 2018 Year of Dog. This is because

the theory of "Liu He" (Six Combinations) and it is the
feng shui way of ensuring the Dog year is supportive of you. This
being the reason why in all the Years of the Dog, the secret rabbit
holds the key to success. The rabbit motif plays an extremely crucial
part in paving way for an amazing year.

and "100 spring"will ease your year ahead and allow you
