Welcome 2018 - Year of the Brown Earth Dog




We read this last week & thought it beautiffully discussed the Year of the Brown Earth Dog of 2018: 


"We welcome the Tibetan and Chinese New Year of the Earth Dog. After an extreme Year of the Fire Rooster, which stirred our passions and ignited us to rise and mobilize into action, we now move into the grounding energy of double Earth in this New Year of the Dog.

Integrity becomes central in all we do, as we continue to re-build a more solid foundation that is rooted and aligned with our universal values of love and respect for all. In this cycle we ground down and take our power back. We use discernment with what we take in and consume in all ways, be it television, social media, thoughts, attitudes, the food we eat, what we buy etc.  Dog shows us the importance of being loyal and how that deepens our relations. We are reminded to use our bark against Injustice as we team up as guardians and caretakers of our planet Earth and all that we hold sacred.

We are waking up, and together rising. Like Sting once sang, "There is a deeper wave than this, swelling in the world... There is a deeper wave than this, listen to me girl."

Here's the Astral Insights on this 2018 Chinese and Tibetan New Year of Earth Dog. First from Narrye Caldwell, Chinese Astrologer and Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine:

"The inevitability of change is a fundamental principle in Chinese astrology. And the ability to skillfully adjust to continually shifting cycles, is a longevity art. Wisdom tells us, that no matter what difficulties you are facing, no matter how hopeless or frightening the situation seems, if you wait it out, a turning point will come. The important thing is to maintain your composure and recognize the moment when appropriate action will be effective." That turning point is now. Welcome to the Year of the Earth Dog.

Let's begin with the element (Earth) that rules this year. Earth has the qualities of stability, nourishment, consistency, balance and harmony. Earth is related to the digestive system in Chinese medicine, and its function of selecting, through our appetite, the correct foods for our condition. When working well, our earth element effortlessly transforms food and thought, (everything we take in), into substance and vitality. When depleted we can get stuck, exhausted, lose our way, become obsessive worriers.

"The coming lunar year, which begins on February 16, is a double Earth year. Not only do we have Earth appearing in the natural cycle of heavenly chi (which progresses through Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water for two years each), but also, the Dog's innate element is Earth... To make best use of this incoming Earth energy, it will be crucial to pay attention to your diet. By this I mean not just the food you eat, but everything you take in; this includes thoughts, ideas, information, and attitudes.

"Attention to what you feed yourself this year will have profound effects on the health of your own Earth element, (your ability to sort fact from fiction) and may determine whether you can rise courageously above the turmoil that threatens the village, or end up in the bog with the marauders...

The Dog is all about loyalty and guardianship. Honest, trustworthy, and fair, Dog is a vigilant protector of friends, family, and all he holds dear. Some call Dog a cynic and an anxious worrier. But who among us doesn't know this territory? When you care about something deeply, and are charged with protecting it with your life, you'd be anxious too. When well supported, the best qualities of Dog come forward- corruption is rooted out, tyranny and oppression overturned, and justice prevails.

However, when dogs are stressed, isolated, and left without compassionate leadership, (consider the poor junkyard dog chained alone outside), they can turn into dangerous unpredictable lunatics.

This we want to avoid by putting aside our differences, seeing the best in each other, teaming up for the higher good, and generally behaving like a well-organized pack. The restoration of justice is the opportunity of the Dog year."

Work and business stress heats up mid-month. Be cautious not to lose your temper! You will not be able to retract anything once you say it... It's also not the time to spend money to make yourself feel better. Stick to your budgets. A relationship you value may need some TLC. You may feel that you have nothing left to give emotionally. This person needs a good listener not advice.  Don't make it about you....


SAGITTARIUS: It's time to stand up and make things happen that you desire to see come to fruition. It is wonderful to be full of faith and trust. Now you must be utterly self-reliant in order get results in whatever area of your life you desire. You will not be happy if you sit back and wait for bullshit artists or third parties making false promises. Some of you are on the brink of a job or residential move. It can be emotionally crippling if you're fearful of change. If you embrace this discomfort and move through it you will LOVE the outcome. Stay positive and stay out of depressive states of mind.  You have a great support system, so reach out if need be. This will be a great time for you to see your true strength.
