2018 – The Year of the Dog

2018 is the year of the yellow-brown Earth Dog. The energy shifts on February 16th. The colors to use for intention-setting and to wear are yellow (and its family: brown, ocher and deep red), olive/green, and deep blue/black. The type of energy is wild and humble, with a desire to be well-taken-care-of, so anything “showy” is not beneficial for the year of the Dog. This Dog enjoys all that is powerful, classy, strong, anchored, stable, thought-through, honest and fair.

2018 is the year of calculated risks, organizing, tracking, paying attention, and following through with details (think of a dog pursuing a scent). It brings an increased analytical introspection, investigation of inner fears and desires, a strong drive to find solutions to old recurring problems, and finally resolve them. The Dog likes to “follow through” – if you began something in 2018, you better finish it in 2018 (or at least have an ongoing strategy if this is a long term plan).

2018 runs an energy examination of our human condition. Authors, philosophers, poets, artists – this is your time to awaken human awareness to the core values of morality and caring, and to raise the fundamental questions about the human role in the conscious evolution of the Universe. Strength of character, living life from the Higher Self, inner health, and balance – these are the key areas to focus on in 2018.

The Dog is about empathy and social justice. Attempts at self-aggrandizing, demagogy, manipulation, and fear-based leadership will be unmasked, because the overall planetary energy in 2018 will only support the higher social morphogenic fields of common human goals, cooperation, and decency.

2018 energy is about positive change – it is a great year to choose a positive behavioral change! If you’ve always wanted to start meditating more, follow a daily workout routine, get healthy, quit smoking, stop negative self-talk, etc. – this is the year to do it because the energy supports positive lifestyle changes.

Symbolically the Earth Dog sits by a mountain, or between two mountains. Thus 2018 represents anything territorially related (inner and outer): gaining or measuring, containing, and the spiritual pursuits. This territory imprint of 2018 is not only about real estate matters, or border protection (boundaries), but also about our internal territories – how much space do we allow the Lower Self to take over? What do we want to change, as to how much room the Higher Self gets?

This 2018 mountain Dog is not a domesticated pet – it is a wild dog. This energy will block your way if you act from a place of insecurity, weakness of character, or fear – and it will lead the way if you show self-sourced power (not from the Ego), clarity of direction, and the drive to succeed. So, before any action it is prudent in 2018 to first gain clarity, then gain inner alignment with your Core Star / Higher Self.

Be aware that 2018 will also have an effect of amplifying the slower negative emotions like sadness, melancholy, depression, and heartache. This energy cannot make you feel something you do not already have inside, but it can amplify it. It is prudent to stay vigilant of these negative emotions (Water and Earth elements together make mud!), and see them in their proper perspective – they do not represent reality, they only amplify the issues you already have – thus they point to these issues! The solution here is to face the emotions in order to deal with the issues – this is what one must do in the Year of the Dog. Facing your negative emotions means becoming an Observer to them, rather than believing them and drowning in them – this clarifies the negative thought patterns and immature beliefs that we still carry and must transmute.

2018’s Earth element sets up the foundations for the 2019 Water element – thus we must do well in 2018 to have a successful “well fertilized” 2019. The Dog likes hard work. This doesn’t mean that everything in 2018 must be hard, but it does mean that there will not be any short-cuts.

Financially 2018 is about honesty, fairness, and integrity. If one is able to be positive and true in relationship to one’s money, the wealth will multiply. If one is scheming and looking for short-cuts and quick win-falls, one will actually lose money quite spectacularly. This also applies to the cycle-of-life in relationship to wealth: recycling and renewable resources will be strongly supported. Anything supporting the clearing up of pollution (including the internal type!) is supported. Industries supporting renewable energy, particularly solar energy and new sources of electricity, will flourish.

The Dog detests waste and impulsive unnecessary spending. In 2018 it is good to know what you actually need, and then share the rest with people you care about (instead of going after what you want and keeping it for yourself only).

The Dog is a social animal, and 2018 is the year of connections – human and non-human. Family plays a strong role in the Year of the Dog. However, the Dog sees family as “the people we resonate with”. Sometimes one’s genetic family is in this category, but most often it is about the close friends and people we are inspired by and relate to. In this upcoming year, strengthen your capacity for sharing, connection, and support for one another.

Looking forward into 2018, the noble and spiritually-oriented, wild mountain Dog will lead us into a more honest comprehension of ourselves.

  1. This looks interesting. Thanks for sharing the details on your blog. I'll let a friend know about this who was interested in joining up for the Police.

  2. There is a long way to run or stroll on, and there is an extensive shoreline region to swim and play in. This is the ideal situation for pre-shower timing. tick collar for dogs
