YEAR 2018: Chinese Zodiac Predictions

From Tarot to Chinese astrological science. How will the 12 signs of the Chinese zodiac fare in 2018? 
PC :

The Sheng Xiao, also called Shu Xiang,  refers to the system of Chinese astrology. It is

based on a 12-year cycle under which there are 12 animals. The astrologer refers to the year of birth and notes the animal that falls under this cycle. While the reading are basically road signs for each zodiac animal’s journey down a particular year, a true BaZi reading goes much deeper; it is reliant on the birth date, time of birth and year a person is born.
The animal signs of the Chinese Zodiac are the Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig.
Coming up frequently in a reading would be the indication of a Nobleman. This generally portends good luck or some benefit, as when a person appears in your life bringing some kind of help in your life journey. Or it can mean a more auspicious time in one’s life. Even during difficult times, the Nobleman can appear and render positive action or aid of some kind.

BaZi practitioner David Yong qualified in Chinese Metaphysics but his  interest led him to further explore the subjects of Feng Shui and Auspicious Dates Selection.

Here he offers a general outlook for each of the 12 animal signs of the Chinese zodiac for 2018 for the Year of the Earth Dog which starts on February 16, 2018 and ends February 2019.
