The Year of The Dog. Predictions of Your Chinese Zodiac.

If you are born in one of these years: 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018, your Chinese Zodiac is a "Dog".

Fun Fact: Kylie Jenner's baby girl, Stormi, and Kim Kardashians'a baby girl, Chicago, were born in the year of the "Dog". Hey! Who would have thought?

But if you look at the technical side of it, both Kardashians' baby girls are a mix of the "Roosters" & "Dog". This is because they were borned before the "official" Chinese New Year 2018.

Pretty interesting.

Before we share the predictions of the Chinese Zodiac 2018, let us share a little bit about the origins of the Chinese Zodiac and why it is so popular amongst the Chinese.

The Chinese animal zodiac, or shengxiao, is a repeating cycle of 12 years, with each year being represented by an animal and its reputed attributes. Traditionally these zodiac animals were used to date the years.  Now, it gets a little complicated. Each zodiac year is also associated with one of the 5 elements: Gold (Metal), Wood, Water, Fire and Earth. This year, we meet the element of Earth. Hence, it is an Earth Dog year. 

Before we reveal the predictions of your Chinese Zodiac, we would like to say that we are not experts in it. We have read many of the Chinese Zodiac predictions this year and would just like to share what we have gathered. So, take this as a little summary and save your time from Googling it all.
