animal sign luck 2018 year of the dogAnimal Sign Luck 2018 Chinese Zodiacs Luck 2018 Predictions for the year of the Yang Earth Dog

There are twelve animal signs or 12 Chinese zodiac signs in Chinese Astrology. Each of us was born with an animal sign.

Before going into the animal sign luck 2018 prediction parts, a very important Chinese Astrology concept needs to remember.

  1. Animal sign of a person is calculated by the year of birth. However, the animal sign does not calculate from the first day of the Chinese New Year to the next Chinese New Year.
  2. The correct animal sign calculation method is that the new animal sign of each year starts at the time of Lichun – the “Start of Spring”. It normally falls on the western calendar on the 3rd, 4th or 5th February each year.

This year, the Chinese New Year is on the 16th February. If a baby was born on any time from 0530 on the 4th February to 15th February 2018. Even though those days are before the Chinese New Year, the correct animal sign is Dog. 0530 on the 4th February is the point of Lichun for 2018, the year of the Dog has begun.

Once again, remember the date passes the point of LiChun, the new animal sign starts.

A FULL Chinese Astrology reading examines NOT only the year of birth (the Animla Sign) but also the birth month, the birth day and the birth hour together. By incorporating with the Luck and yearly pillars, A Chinese Astrologer can see a picture of your destiny from your birth data.

By just using the animal signs or Chinese zodiac signs, it is difficult to completely and fully predict just on how each year will affect each individual at a very details level. It is because such animal sign astrology is only examined 25% (1/4 the year of birth) and in some cases 37.5% of the four pillars’ natal chart by adding the birth into calculation.

For more reliable assessment in all aspects of your life in year of the Yang Earth Dog 2018, I recommend that you have your Bazi chart read by a reputable Chinese Astrologer.
