Chinese Zodiac Predictions For 2018

Note: when determining your Chinese Animal Sign from your year of birth, the year begins on 4/5 February according to the solar calendar which is used for Chinese 4 Pillars Astrology & Feng Shui purposes.  The lunar calendar (which begins this year on 16 February 2018) is used mainly for traditional New Year celebrations and festivals linked to the cycles of the moon. Also, when determining the compass sectors of your home, each compass sector begins from the gravitational centre of your home and extends out to the boundary lines of your property, like 8 giant pieces of pie. If using a compass app on your phone, make sure it is calibrated to Magnetic North and NOT Map/True North. Otherwise, use a real compass which will automatically show you the location of Magnetic North. 

dog

Dog (Xu) 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018 

In 2018 the annual 1 White Tan Lang and Tai Sui energies converge in the Dog zone in the Northwest sector. If you avoid renovation and excavation within a third of the Northwest sector (closest to where NW meets West), then you are more likely to tap into supportive intelligence, learning and wisdom energy this year.   It’s important for you to connect with this energy in 2018 because the key to getting ahead is via intelligent negotiation, diplomacy and a generally conservative and conciliatory outlook.

Do not gamble or invest in high-risk investments because there will be a higher probability of loss of finances if you seek a quick fix approach to money – esp around April, June, August and December.   Instead, you should seek to consolidate what you have, pay down debt and build on your savings, while adhering to a sustainable budget and long-term savings plan.

Peach Blossom/Romance energy occurs for Dog individuals from 5 March until 4 April, so make an effort to spend quality time with loved ones and get out and be social during this time frame if you are looking to connect with new friends and/or a potential new partner.

There is career support for Dog individuals this year around September, October and November, however you should also be mindful of maintaining a healthy work/life balance because people on the home front may feel somehow left out. Make time for quality communication and be ready to compromise with family and loved ones in order to ensure a harmonious balance.

You can further boost your luck potential in 2018 by doing some light renovation or excavation or placing a continually moving object in the location of the annual Dragon Virtue qi (which affects a third of the SE sector, closest to where SE meets South). Activating this annual qi with regular movement and activity will help remove blockages and obstacles that may be preventing forward progress.

People born in the year of the Rabbit make good mentors/allies and this partnership can attract abundance opportunity to you.

Your favourable hours in the day are: 3am-5am, 11am-1pm & 7pm-9pm.

If you are looking for a partner, place a Wood and Water combination (eg a vase filled with fresh water and a healthy living plant or bamboo stems growing in the water), in the centre of the East sector within your home, which is your personal Peach Blossom/Romance location.  Keep the water fresh and the plant healthy.  Once you have connected with your partner, replace the Wood and Water combination with a happy couple photo of you both in a blue, black, green or natural timber frame.

boar

Boar (Hai) 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007 

The annual Sun, 1 Tan Lang and Robbery Sha all affect the Boar zone in the Northwest sector in 2018. This is a mixed bag of tricks as these energies attract both positive and negative qi and indicate you should be extra security conscious with your belongings this year, however you also have support for all forms of learning and development of the intellect.

The annual 1 Tan Lang qi is supportive for intelligence and wisdom, (thus supporting all forms of upskilling and education), although you should also be mindful this influence can increase the effects of alcohol and/or negative emotions in the NW sector.

Abundance opportunity is more likely to occur around February, June, August and November.

Be extra careful with security and personal belongings this year – especially when travelling. Make sure you have good travel insurance and clearly label your luggage.

People born in the year of the Tiger make good mentors/allies and this partnership can attract abundance opportunity to you.

Your favourable hours of the day are 5am–7am, 1pm–3pm & 9pm–11pm.

If you are looking for a partner, place a Wood and Water combination (ie a healthy plant or bamboo stems growing in a vase of fresh water) in the centre of the North sector within your home, which is your personal Peach Blossom/Romance location. Keep the water fresh and the plant healthy. Once you have connected with your partner, replace the Wood and Water Combination with a happy couple photo of you both in a dark blue, black or metallic frame.

Rat

Rat (Zi) 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008

The Wu Xu energy of 2018 brings good fortune to the Rat individual who is prepared to take on more responsibility and be accountable for their words and actions. 2018 is a year when you must play by the rules. There are no short cuts this year – you must plan and prepare and then your due diligence will be rewarded with the ability to save and build a nest egg of assets and/or investments.

There will be some delays and obstacles to circumnavigate this year and that’s why it’s important to rein in impulsiveness and carefully consider your options before proceeding. Troublesome individuals are more likely to cause tension and/or miscommunication around April, June, September and October, so be extra cautious will all communications during these months when misunderstandings can more easily occur.

Be extra careful to avoid renovation, construction, excavation and cutting down trees in the North sector of your home and property from 4 Feb 2018 until 3 Feb 2019. If the North sector is disturbed, the energy of the annual 5 Yellow and Sarm Sart can trigger 3 types of misfortune to occur, so keep this area uncluttered and well maintained, without noisy disruptive disturbance and all will be well.

2018 is a supportive year for Rat individuals to connect with a new partner and/or deepen their relationship with an existing partner, especially in May and July.

People born in the year of the Ox make good mentors/allies and this partnership can attract abundance opportunity to you.

Your favourable hours in the day are: 11pm-1am, 7am-9am & 3pm-5pm.

If you are looking for a partner, place a Wood and Water combination (eg a vase filled with fresh water and a healthy living plant or bamboo stems growing in the water), in the centre of the West sector within your home, which is your personal Peach Blossom/Romance location.  Keep the water fresh and the plant healthy.  Once you have connected with your partner, replace the Wood and Water combination with a happy couple photo of you both in a metallic frame.

ox

Ox (Chou) 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009 

In 2018 the Wu Xu energy stimulates the annual Moon qi in Chou which connects with the ability to communicate well with others. You can further support this annual qi if you place a continually moving object in the Northeast sector of your home and/or office (closest to where NE meets North). The annual Moon qi is especially favourable for females and individuals wanting to calm and harmonise their emotions while also opening up the lines of productive communication.

The annual 3 Lu Cun qi in the Ox zone indicates you will need to develop your competitive side in order to achieve this year, otherwise you risk quarrelsome and litigious energy stirring the pot. Research your competitors and work on your point of difference – it will help you succeed in 2018. You should also be wary of tricksters and dodgy investments this year.

Add a decorative red object or a lamp that is regularly turned on in the Northeast sector of your home and office to bridge the annual 3 qi to the inherent earth of the Gen Trigram.

Abundance opportunity is more likely to occur around April, June, July and December.

People born in the year of the Rat make good mentors/allies and this partnership can attract abundance opportunity to you.

Your favourable hours of the day are 1am-3am, 9am-11am & 5pm-7pm.

tiger

Tiger (Yin) 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010 

The 2018 Wu Xu year brings supportive career energy for Tiger individuals – especially if you are competitive, sales oriented and careful with your due diligence. There will be opportunity to increase your income via creative and innovative ideas and new technology.

There will be some quarrelsome and/or deceptive energy affecting you around February, April and October. It’s important to carefully check all facts before responding and concentrate on developing your negotiating skills. There may also be some jealousy on the work front to contend with.

You should also be careful with your lower limbs and feet and wear sensible footwear. If you develop heel pain or a weak knee or ankle, it’s important that you address the issue and get it seen to by a specialist.

Abundance opportunity is more likely to occur around May, June, July and November.

Male Tigers are more likely to connect to supportive relationship energy this year while females are more likely to find potential romance via their work place or in connection with a financial institution.

People born in the year of the Boar make good mentors/allies and this partnership can attract abundance opportunity to you.

Your favourable times of the day are 3am-5am, 11am-1pm & 7pm-9pm.

rabbit

Rabbit (Mao) 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011

During the Wu Xu year in 2018, the annual Dog energy combines with your Rabbit energy to produce Fire qi. If Fire is favourable in your Chinese Astrology, then this combination will enable you to influence and persuade others. If Fire is unfavourable, then you will need to be extra careful with your communications as you may risk losing the respect of others via miscommunication and/or a throw away comment that is taken out of context.

Rabbit individuals will enjoy supportive career luck, especially if you are working in a partnership, as part of a team and/or with a joint venture partner. To ensure good use of this favourable energy, make sure you are diligent with your business plan, budgeting and keep a close eye on expenditure.

There will be temptation to overspend – esp around March, July and September. Stick to your plan and budget and you will enjoy increased abundance opportunity.

Abundance opportunity is more likely to occur around April, May, June, September and December

Be extra cautious with your health and safety and make sure your car is well maintained and up to date with its service, esp in August and November.

People born in the year of the Dog make good mentors/allies and this partnership can attract abundance opportunity to you.

Your favourable hours of the day are 5am-7am, 1pm-3pm & 9pm-11pm.

If you are looking for a partner, place a Wood and Water combination (eg a vase filled with fresh water and a healthy living plant or bamboo stems growing in the water), in the centre of the North sector within your home, which is your personal Peach Blossom/Romance location.  Keep the water fresh and the plant healthy.  Once you have connected with your partner, replace the Wood and Water combination with a happy couple photo of you both in a blue, black or metallic frame.

dragon

Dragon (Chen) 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012

The Wu Xu energy in 2018 brings some clash of qi. You are an opposing force in the Dog year, so this is a year to batten down the hatches, adopt a humble, pragmatic and generally conservative and cautious outlook.

You should also be prepared for change to occur – most likely in relation to where you live or work or via a change in assets. Don’t fight the change – it’s inevitable so you might as well embrace it and hold on for the ride ahead.

Abundance opportunity is more likely to occur around March, April and September.

Fortunately, you have the annual 8 White Zuo Fu qi in the Dragon zone this year, so there is an undercurrent of support waiting for you to tap into it if you maintain a humble and conservative outlook.

Some light renovation, excavation or a continually moving object positioned in the location of the annual Fortune Virtue energy in the Southwest sector of your home or office (closest to where SW meets South) will activate qi that connects with happiness, optimism and vitality.

People born in the year of the Rooster make good mentors/allies and this partnership can attract abundance opportunity to you.

Your favourable hours of the day are 7am-9am, 11pm-1am & 3pm-5pm.

If you are looking for a partner, place a Wood and Water combination (eg a vase filled with fresh water and a healthy living plant or bamboo stems growing in the water), in the centre of the West sector within your home, which is your personal Peach Blossom/Romance location.  Keep the water fresh and the plant healthy.  Once you have connected with your partner, replace the Wood and Water combination with a happy couple photo of you both in a metallic frame.

snake

Snake (Si) 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013

In 2018 the Snake individual enjoys the combination of the annual 8 White qi plus the annual Dragon Virtue qi which helps remove obstacles and opens up the doors of opportunity. Of course, you still need to take action in order to connect with the opportunity and one of the first actions you should take this year (from 4 Feb) is to lightly renovate/excavate or add a continually moving object (or a decorative lamp that changes colour) to the Southeast sector of your home or office (closest to where SE meets South). This will help open up the pathways for positive planning and action throughout the year.

Your talents and achievements are more likely to be noticed by people in positions of power and authority this year. Make sure your professional persona is squeaky clean, and this includes tidying up your social media to better reflect your professional identity.

Abundance opportunity is more likely to occur around February, March, August, October and December.

People born in the year of the Monkey make good mentors/allies and this partnership can attract abundance opportunity to you.

Your favourable hours of the day are 1am-3am, 9am-11am & 5pm-7pm.

If you are looking for a partner, place a Wood and Water combination (eg a vase filled with fresh water and a healthy living plant or bamboo stems growing in the water), in the centre of the South sector of your home, which is your personal Peach Blossom/Romance location.    Keep the water fresh and the plant healthy.  Once you have connected with your partner, replace the Wood and Water combination with a happy couple photo of you both in a timber frame.

horse

Horse (Wu) 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014

2018 is a positive year to invest in yourself via updating your skills and education. The presence of the annual 4 Green Wen Qu qi in the Horse zone supports all forms of research, learning, teaching and creative expression. If you’ve been thinking of doing a course, writing a book, starting a blog, attending or putting together a course or seminar, this is the year to do it.

Abundance opportunity will tend to be strongest around February, March, July and December.

Be wary of emotional stress triggered by miscommunication in April and October. Check your facts carefully and go direct to the source of the problem rather than relying on second hand information which is likely to be biased and thus muddy the waters of understanding.

People born in the year of the Goat make good mentors/allies and this partnership can attract abundance opportunity to you.

Your favourable hours of the day are 3am-5am, 11am-1pm & 7pm-9pm.

If you are looking for a partner, place a Wood and Water combination (eg a vase filled with fresh water and a healthy living plant or bamboo stems growing in the water), in the centre of the East sector of your home, which is your personal Peach Blossom/Romance location.    Keep the water fresh and the plant healthy.  Once you have connected with your partner, replace the Wood and Water combination with a happy couple photo of you both in a timber frame.

goat

Goat or Sheep (Wei) 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015

Goat individuals enjoy the presence of the annual Fortune Virtue and 6 White Wu Qu energies in 2018. This combination connects with happiness and maintaining positive focus, especially if you have a continually moving object positioned in the SW sector of your home and/or office (closest to where SW meets South). This will activate the annual Fortune Virtue qi in the Southwest sector during the Wu Xu year and will help negate the effect of the Wei/Xu energy combination which can otherwise entice you to feel somehow left out or deprived during the Dog year.

So, if you find yourself feeling vulnerable or left out, go to the Southwest sector of your home (where the SW meets South), and open up any windows in this location, move the furniture around, dig up the garden or do some light renovation (eg drilling or hammering) in this location to rebalance the qi and reconnect you with positive happy social vibes.

The annual 6 White qi encourages the Goat individual to take on more responsibility and demonstrate leadership ability. Career energy will tend to be more supportive around June and December.

Be especially careful with communications and contractual agreements in May, July, September and November. Check all facts before signing.

People born in the year of the Horse make good mentors/allies and this partnership can attract abundance opportunity to you.

Your favourable hours of the day are: 5am-7am, 1pm-3pm & 9pm-11pm.

If you are looking for a partner, place a Wood and Water combination (eg a vase filled with fresh water and a healthy living plant or bamboo stems growing in the water), in the centre of the North sector within your home, which is your personal Peach Blossom/Romance location.  Keep the water fresh and the plant healthy.  Once you have connected with your partner, replace the Wood and Water combination with a happy couple photo of you both in a blue, black or metallic frame.

monkey

Monkey (Shen) 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016

Monkey individuals seeking promotion and/or new career opportunity should be prepared to   take on more responsibility, be accountable for your words and actions and demonstrate your pragmatic leadership ability during the Wu Xu year in 2018. Don’t rely on others to get the job done. Do your own due diligence and stick with a plan.

The presence of the annual 6 White Wu Qu qi in the Monkey zone supports individuals who are achievement oriented and prepared to prove their worth. This may entail updating your skills and education as well as diligently working on the steps needed to get you to where you want to be career-wise. It’s important to take ownership of your finances and stick to a workable budget and long-term savings plan.

Career progress and/or abundance opportunity is more likely to occur around February, May, July, August and December.

It will help to activate the annual Fortune Virtue qi in the Southwest sector (closest to where SW meets South) with some light renovation, excavation or placing a continually moving object in this location of your home and/or office. This energy will connect you with happiness and supportive mentor qi for your positive focus.

People born in the year of the Snake make good mentors/allies and this partnership can attract abundance opportunity to you.

Your favourable hours in the day are: 11pm-1am, 7am-9am & 3pm-5pm.

If you are looking for a partner, place a Wood and Water combination (eg a vase filled with fresh water and a healthy living plant or bamboo stems growing in the water), in the centre of the West sector within your home, which is your personal Peach Blossom/Romance location.  Keep the water fresh and the plant healthy.  Once you have connected with your partner, replace the Wood and Water combination with a happy couple photo of you both in a metallic frame.

rooster

Rooster (You) 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017

In 2018, the energy of the Wu Xu/Earth Dog supports progress via education, research and doing your due diligence. There is a hidden storage of abundance opportunity to be found if you are prepared to work for it.

Abundance opportunity is more likely to occur around April, June, August, October and November.

There is potential for hidden health issues to emerge, so you should keep a gourd or an empty metallic vase (with a big belly, narrow neck and an opening at the top), beside your bed and/or under your work desk and also in the West sector of your home this year. Place a teaspoon of bi-carb soda into the vase and nothing else. This will help protect against sickness qi that resides in the Rooster zone this year.

Once the sickness qi is contained within the gourd or empty gourd-shaped vase, the energy of the annual 2 Ju Men qi in the Rooster location will support frugal savings and connect with supportive maternal and meditative energy.

People born in the year of the Dragon make good mentors/allies and this partnership can attract abundance opportunity to you.

Your favourable hours in the day are: 1am-3am, 9am-11am & 5pm-7pm.
