2018 Chinese Five Element Astrology - Year of Brown Dog

The complete post:

2018 is Year of the Dog and it starts on February 4, 2018 in China time zone.
This day is different from Chinese Lunar New Year Day, which is February 16, 2018. 2018 is the Year of Male Earth Dog. The color of Earth in Five Elements system is related to Brown. Therefore 2018 is a Brown Dog year.

Before predicting your fortune using Chinese Five Element theory, you have to know what Type of Element you are in the Chinese Astrology birth chart. The element presenting you is called "Day Master". Also, you have to know which elements bring you luck. We call that element "Lucky Element".

You can find your "Day Master" and "Lucky Element" from your birthday and birth time by using our Chinese Astrology application at
The following is the brief 2018 Five Element prediction for your Day Master.

When Your Day Master is Metal

2018 is the Male Earth Dog year. Earth is the Mother Element of Metal. Therefore, Male Earth of 2018 stands for your parents, elders, protection, knowledge, education or medicine.*During the Dog year, you will often contact elders or persons who care you. Or you will spend more time in learning knowledge. Or you will pay attention to your health. Or you will think about your housing investment. Or you feel lots of advice and helps at work.

The Dog is Male Earth too. Male Earth is dry soil, mound, tall wall or mountains. If too much Earth covers the Metal, people cannot see your existence. That also implies you are over-protected. You will become lazy to do the social activities and outdoor sports.

Earth also represents your reputation. Basically, many people protecting you will give you good reputation. Those people might take care lots of your responsible business. You will lose the opportunity to train yourself to be a more skillful person. For example, you will have less job pressure with someone's help in the office.

Too much Earth can completely absorb Water and make Water disappear. 2018 have very strong dry earth; it could impact your health. To protect your health, you have to look for the help from Metal. This is because that Metal is the Mother Element of Water (you) and is the Child Element of Earth. Earth will pass its energy to Metal, and Metal will pass its energy to you.
