Chinese New Year 2018 begins on 16th February 2018 and this date will change circumstances for millions of people throughout the year so please read below to make sure that you are completely prepared for what may be ahead of you during 2018. The information on this site for 2018 will help you to be prepared and make informed decisions in 2018 that may affect your well being and endeavors. It is important that you know when and how to avoid bad influences during 2018.
Without a doubt, there will be many Rabbits that will be glad to see 2017 coming to an end and they should be glad to hear that 2018 is a lot more promising although I know for a fact that so many Rabbits have enjoyed a successful 2017 and benefited from the 2017 annual advice we gave and also using our annual cures kits and the Master Cure along with the fine-tuning of our powerful Feng Shui Software to get as good a result as possible. As we come into the year of the Dog, we will need some special cures and enhancers in 2018 to make the most of the year.
Chinese astrology and western astrology differ a lot from each other. Chinese astrology is used to inform people of what may take place and how you can apply the necessary cures and enhancers to avoid any problems that could potentially arise in your life; Chinese astrology is also about having the information in advance so that you can avoid any of the problems that are predicted.
Please don’t think that because there may be problems ahead in 2018 that the year will be terrible for you, if you are prepared and take the advice for your Chinese Animal, you will be able to approach the year ahead with a positive attitude and will be able to avoid any problems that may lie ahead. You can also help avoid any problems and difficulties by taking a look at the 2018 Flying Star (Xuan Kong)
Being able to avoid negative Flying Stars can help you modify your year’s luck in a good way. There will be many websites and other practitioners that will predict all sorts of problems and calamities for a certain animal in any year. What you need to bear in mind that even though there may be problems arising, there are also solutions to problems that can really turn things around for you which is what we have written into each synopsis for 2018 for you. Please take this with a pinch of salt and enjoy a great 2018.
You should start to prepare and place your annual cures and enhancers as soon as possible as it really is crucial to get this right. This will set the foundations for a trouble-free year. You could even use our professional Flying Star Feng Shui Software or 2018 Tong Shu Almanac Software which will give you total control on an annual and monthly basis. We have combined our software with our Annual cures kits to give you even more savings this year.
Those born in the year of the Dragon may be affected by the conflicting influences of the year of the Yang Earth Dog Wu Xu. In saying this, we hope that those born in the year of the Dragon are aware of potential difficulties they may encounter during the year and take extra care in whatever they do without taking undue risks. The degree of influence varies from one person to another. One of the major considerations is the heavenly stem of the year in which one was born, more on this later.
If you were born before February 4th (Spring Begins), use the year before. If it is after February 4th, then use the same birth year. This is worth double-checking; as you would be amazed how many people born in January or February get it wrong. If you are unsure of your Chinese Animal maybe consider using our Feng Shui software that calculates it automatically along with personal Gua, flying stars, annual, fixed and monthly and so much more.
- Born 2nd February 1958 = Rooster
- Born 5th February 1958 = Dog
- Born 3rd February 1987 = Tiger
- Born 5th February 1987 = Rabbit
2018 is the 4716h year of the Chinese calendar.
In China, the solar calendar of the Wu Xu (Yang Earth Dog) year starts on 4th February 2018 at 05:38 China time. In the UK, the new solar year starts on 3rd February 2018 at 21:38. In Washington USA it will start 3rd February 2018 at 16:38 and if you live in Barcelona you would place your cures at 22:38.
To enhance wealth, luck, business and career in 2018:
The last Wu Xu You Yang Earth Dog years were in 1958, 1898 and 1838, each of the years were unstable with severe clashes of energies and this year very special cures and enhancers are need more than ever and the most influential and crucial cure and enhancer in 2018 is called a Jiebaopinchuan Master Cure and can only to be used in a Yang Earth Dog Wu Xu years. The last time that this powerful cure and enhancer would have been used was in 1958 which was also a Yang Earth Dog year although only a privileged few got to use it.
This cure is used to protect and enhance wealth and good luck in 2018, especially for the eldest daughter or female of the home or office if a daughter is not present although equally needed for males especially for wealth.
This is one of the most powerful and commanding cure and enhancer for wealth, health, relationships and protection and because this cure is very important for wealth in 2018 we included it standard in all our 2018 cures and enhancers kits. If you follow this link you will find full details 2018 flying star analysis follow this link.
To enhance romance in 2018:
Romance, academic and creative studies can be enhanced in the southeast (#4 star) and south (#8 star) of your home. Whilst this #4 star is very auspicious, without the necessary cures, the #4 star can bring both wanted and unwanted romantic opportunities to the household if the correct cures are not put in place especially if you have a main entrance or an important room like a master bedroom or living room.
The southeast has a powerful #4 romance star although this can be troublesome if cures are not placed and this is caused by the #4 clashing with Sui Po in the southeast palace in 2018 and this area of a home or office needs a very special Talisman to counterbalance the #4 Annual star meeting Sui Po in the same palace. To enhance romance and career in 2018, place a Taohua Mandarin Ducks along with the Shou Kun Qi Fu picture frame in the south of your home or business, you should also introduce some water colours like shades of blue, black, grey and you can introduce these colours with a doormat, rug, cushion cover, sofa throw, curtains or similar, it really is very easy to do.
Make sure you follow the 2018 Flying Star (Xuan Kong) recommendations. If your office or bedroom is located in the south, please be aware that in the months of June and September 2018 you should make sure you at least place a Six Chinese i-ching coins In a row tied in a row with red ribbon for these months especially if you are not in good health or very stressed and especially for the eldest male or any male of a home or business. If you have a bedroom located in the southeast, place Six Chinese i-ching coins In a row during the months of April and November.
Avoiding bad luck in 2018
As we have the #2 black star enter the west of the lo shu in 2018 and special cures and enhancers are needed more than ever but at the very least to help disperse the negative effects, you should hang a set of six Chinese coins tied with red ribbon and a salt water cure in the west and north of your home or office this year to control the #5 and #2 stars. For full details on 2018 flying star analysis follow this link. This is very important in 2018 especially if you have a main door, bedroom, office, lounge or other important room in the west, east, north or northeast.
If you would like to be informed in advance of the monthly, annual and fixed flying stars giving you the ultimate control of your home or business, you should consider our 2018 advanced Feng Shui software; it is used by thousands of Feng Shui Masters, Practitioners and students throughout the world. Combining this with our new incredible and extremely powerful Tong Shu Almanac date selection software this will make 2018 a better year indeed.
The Three Killings – north (322.5 – 37.5)
It is important that you try not to make any form of noisy renovations or re-decorative work in the north part of your house or office between February 4th 2018 and February 3rd 2019. You should not disturb the ground by digging holes, digging foundations or conduct any maintenance work with any noisy equipment in this area inside or outside your property or garden. If you have no option but to perform work in the north, I would advise that you place a 6 Metal rod wind chime in the north in 2018 around the time the work is being carried out. This is the worst out of all the annual afflictions and in our home and business, we take this very seriously as in our 37 years’ experience with Feng Shui we have seen some pretty nasty events from this energy when disturbed.
There are also another two other rules that you should follow regarding the Three Killings in 2018. Firstly, if you are moving your desk around this year, never sit with your back towards the south, it is better to face north instead.
If the front door of your home or office faces the north in 2018, you should take care as to not slam the door as the Three Killings can be a lot more settled if the door is opened and shut calmly; this also applies to internal doors and definitely the case if the north of your home is a children’s bedroom or playroom. The best cures for the north in 2018 are to place a six rod hollow metal wind chime along with a salt water cure and six Chinese i-ching coins in a row from the 4th February 2018 to the 4th February 2019. The 6 metal rod wind chime should be tapped often to make the chimes jingle and will not activate the three killings for 2018 as this is only a slight noise. You can also place a pair of Fu Dogs or a Ba Gua Mirror here if you have a door located here.
If you need to urgently carry out repairs to your home or office in the north during the year of the Yang Earth Dog, you should place a six hollow metal rod wind chime between the buildings and where the work is being carried out and ideally you should contact a professional Feng Shui Consultant to select an auspicious date to start the work or you can use our Tong Shu software.
Tai Sui (The Grand Duke of Jupiter) – northwest (292.5º – 307.5º)
Like the Three Killings, Tai Sui does not like to be disturbed either. The effects of Tai Sui can be good or bad depending on the annual flying stars that coincide with its location and in 2018, we also have the #3 visiting star in the northwest which can cause problems for the middle son and it could affect ears, kidneys or blood-related. The traditional Chinese method to appease Tai Sui is to place a Jiang Wu Tai Sui gold plated plaque for 2018 to pay respect and appease the Deity along with an Arowana fish sitting on bed of coins to enhance the annual #1 star. This is really important this year and we have included the Arowana fish sitting on bed of coins and Jiang Wu Tai Sui gold plated plaque in all our annual cures and enhancers kits.
Sui Po (Year Breaker) – southeast (112.5º – 127.5º)
Sui Po year breaker occupies the division directly opposite Tai Sui Grand Duke, which for 2018 is in the southeast as we have Tai Sui located in the northwest for the year of the Yang Earth Dog. You should treat this area the same as any of the other annual afflictions with no ground-breaking work, renovations or any noisy activities in the southeast this year. If disturbed, this area can and usually will cause immediate health problems especially with regards to the elderly, so please be very careful. Traditionally to appease Sui Po in a Dog year, you would need to display a Jiebaopinchuan Master Cure and Cai Leishui crystal talisman which we have included in all of our 2018 Cures and Enhancers kits.
The annual five yellow star- north (337.5 – 22.5)
The annual five yellow star has flown to the north in 2018 along with the Three Killings so it is vital that the north is looked after this year with the appropriate cures and enhancers. As we have the Annual #5 yellow enter the north in 2018, we have the inherent water energy of the north destroying the visiting energy of the #5 earth star which will weaken the influence of the annual #5 slightly although please do not leave this area untreated as there could still be problems such as sickness, lawsuits and major loss of wealth so it is vital that the north has as much protection as possible as we also have the Three Killings located here for 2018. It is highly recommended not to disturb the north of your home or business with noisy activities, renovations or maintenance work. When disturbed, the Five Yellow can bring disaster, sickness, lawsuit and major loss of wealth so please be very careful in the north in 2018 as it is very afflicted. You must place Six Chinese i-ching coins in a row , a six rod hollow metal wind chime and a salt water cure in the north to avoid the problems that are associated the #5 yellow disaster star in 2018.
2018 Chinese Animal Predictions for the Rat
The year will be mixed and busy with opportunities opening in the workplace which will improve income and lifestyle both immediate and in the future. The chance of travel is also on the horizon for the Rat who has any business connections away from home base.
If the Rat is to gain maximum profit from these opportunities, he will benefit from acknowledging his propensity to become distracted and placing his energies into other projects or schemes that will not eventuate. Recognising this trait and avoiding the pull to become distracted, will help him to remain disciplined and be able to focus on the task at hand.
The Rat is a gregarious creature with an abundance of friends and has an exceptional ability to work well with others. This trait brings him respect from his workmates as he demonstrates his keenness to work as a positive team member.
With his many social and work connections, the Rat will have much advice and support on hand. If there are opportunities for growth or promotion, others will jump in with encouragement and a kind word in the right places. Regular communication with contacts, including employment specialists, will be beneficial to discuss any desires for work experience growth or change.
The Rats efforts during the year of the Dog should increase income. There will also be opportunities for income growth by turning a hobby into profit or additional work.
The Rat’s keen eye needs to be especially alert if entering into any significant transactions, or something that has a risk element to it such as investments. Remaining vigilant, reading documents thoroughly and asking for advice, will prevent any unexpected financial losses.
The year of the Dog will be a busy one for the Rat, and he must be careful not to neglect his relationships and personal life. It will be easy for the Rat to get so caught up with demands placed upon him that he may retreat from those closest to him. This oversight could result in tension and disharmony. Regular communication, and sharing any concerns with those close to him, will bring support and caring advice which will help maintain harmony and peace.

The Dog year will not be the best year for work change. If the Ox is determined to change employment, then he will need to be prepared to work hard. The Ox can maximise a positive outcome by keeping an open mind when job hunting as he may find himself in an entirely new, unexpected position. He may even commence training for something new, and this will be an opportunity for the Ox to develop further skills and expand his work associate circle. If work is a priority this year April, May, September and November will be the ideal months.
Many Oxen will enjoy an increase in income during the year of the Dog. However, this is not the time to overspend or be frivolous.

The Ox is by nature a methodical creature, and this will serve him well when it comes to any financial papers including Tax Returns.
Home-life is very important to the Ox and the year of the Dog will be an active one. The organisational skills of the Ox will be called upon and appreciated, especially with regards to travel arrangements for a special family holiday.
The Year of the Dog will also find many Oxen enjoying a new relationship and settle down. 2018, however, is not the best time to plan or have a baby, so consider waiting a couple of years. Plan the arrival of your new baby for the year of the Rat which will be a perfect time. If planning a wedding then March, April, May, and September will be an excellent time.
Although some Oxen are not fans of travel, there will be opportunities to visit and explore various countries both near and far.

Any attempts to go that extra mile will not go unnoticed or be wasteful.

However, to succeed in the year of the Dog, the Horse will be required to be a part of a team and make an effort to get to know his colleagues. He is a likable, considerate being so making a little more effort to work alongside others won’t be too tricky for the Horse and workmates.

The Goat likes to work in a team and alongside others and maintaining close and communicating regularly with work colleagues will help ease the Goat through any pressures. He will value and appreciate any support and advice given especially from more experienced colleagues.

For higher chances and successes over his competitors, the Goat will manage well if he meticulously prepares for interviews. Many gains will be made long-term by the Goat who remains consistent and focused. Most favourable months for work opportunities are April, June, October, and November.
Although the Goat is not particularly materialistic, he does have a habit of spending his money as it comes in. However, he will need to pay extra attention to his finances during the year of the Dog and aim to curb his spending habits. Making time to prepare a budget and remain disciplined will help him control his outgoings. It will also be vital for the Goat to check terms and conditions in any documents that involve an expensive commitment.

Doing so will result in significant progress throughout the year.

Ultimately, he will appreciate their encouragement, advice, and support. The Monkey will enjoy his home life and family activities immensely during the year of the Dog.
The year of the Dog will also include a very pleasurable social life for the Monkey.

2018 Chinese Animal Predictions for the Rooster
The Rooster will achieve more significant results for the year if he accepts that the year of the Dog is not the year for reaching his work goals. If he approaches the year with the mindset that he will best be served by improving his knowledge, skills and gain more experience, then it will be this that will propel him forward in upcoming years.
Many Rooster will have taken a new direction in 2017 and 2018 is the perfect year to embrace their new position, improve their skills and learn as much as they can about their new role. Don’t forget, Rooster, to connect and communicate with work colleagues. Showcase your talents, and you’ll appreciate their help and support.
The Rooster is, by nature, a thorough and meticulous being but the year of the Dog will be challenging for him and extremely busy. As a result, he may find that he could miss essential matters and his usual high standards may fall. When the pressure builds Rooster, try to take the time-out, meditate or take regular short naps to break up your day. These respites will enable you to approach any stressful matters with a deeper sense of ease and bring you back in control of the situation.
Flexibility is called for again this year if the Rooster wishes to change his employment. Try to think outside of your usual occupation and consider any position. The Rooster may come across some stiff competition so before dismissing an opportunity scrutinize it and try to see the advantages.
As with most signs during this year of the Dog, effective money management will be necessary. The Rooster could find it an expensive year, so endeavour to compare prices, especially when purchasing high-end products or entering into an agreement. The Rooster will also need to read thoroughly any documentation regarding an expensive purchase. Plan your budget Rooster, and you’ll reduce any stress regarding finances.
If the Rooster plans any home projects, such improvements or renovations, then it will be critical to remain flexible with deadlines and to be realistic with completing projects by a fixed time. The year of the Dog will be hectic for the Rooster, and he won’t fare well if he places too much pressure on himself to have completion by a set date.
A busy, pleasurable social life is also on the agenda for the gregarious Rooster during the year of the Dog. He will enjoy many invitations and be able to showcase his fabulous conversational skills. However, the Rooster can be tactless if he has the opportunity and this year he will need to be on guard and be mindful of saying something that he may regret later. Favourable and active months for social activity will be April, June, July, and November.
The Rooster will enjoy time away and would benefit by organising a holiday at some point during the year. This vacation would be an opportunity to meet and connect with others.
