                        Dog 2018

2018 Year of the Earth Dog.
Loyalty, integrity, intelligence, grounded, protective, honest.

2018 World In General:

SE, South, SW and NW
Success, romance, creativity, wealth.

North, West, East and NE
Destruction, illness, violence, theft, disputes, legal troubles.

NOTE: North is a very bad direction in 2018 because it contains the bad #5 Earth Flying Star coupled with something called the 3 Killings - double malevolent energies if disturbed!

Not a year of growth but of common sense, patience and hard work. Boundaries and plans need to be defined. The second half of 2018 may reap wonderful benefits. Don't be afraid to dream big, but put in the work and lay the solid groundwork to achieve this.

Politics - World Stage:
Global nervous tension continues thanks to Trump who is a Fire Dog. Expect the unexpected. Politics is a game of chess and the puppet masters play it behind closed doors, out of public view. Take nothing at face value. Nothing is ever what it seems.

China, #1 world leader, is super busy buying up and destroying the planet and will only put up with so much nonsense from Trump who continues to stir up trouble and engage provocative N.Korea. Russia will side with China as will Iran if anything happens, this year or the next. The West is sick, lacking in power, strength and intelligence (USA specifically), whilst the East is a focused and dangerous force not to be played with or underestimated.

Economy, Finances and Stock Market
Financial Caution - Economy is still dodgy, financial crisis still looming on horizon. Focus on creating and saving in 2018, not spending and buying.

Technology 2018 is still expanding - Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence, SMART cities, Robots taking over every job possible, Drone Warfare and Surveillance continues over populations worldwide. There is minimal to zero cyber-security, and hacking of both personal or corporate information is more and more common, often for ransom. Between now and 2025-2030, expect unimaginable changes, be prepared.

Health: Focus on stomach or lung issues. Eat healthy, living foods, exercise to strengthen the lungs and stop smoking!

Disasters: While #9 star is an auspicious star, when visiting the central section of earth, it can cause terrible disasters relating to fire and water, such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, plus floods and landslides.

The West coast of USA has already suffered the wrath of fire, earth and water elements triggered by the incoming #9 Fire Flying Star visiting the earth center, as well as the incoming #2 Earth Flying Star residing in the West for 2018.

HIGH ALERT: American West coast residents must be well prepared and stocked up for possible earthquakes in 2018 - long overdue!

The abusive energy of the SW in 2017, directed towards females, was halted by a few brave women who dared to redirect it back to the source, the archaic patriarchal establishment with their abuse of power over women (including towards other men, and less spoken of but rampant, children). The SW female energy of 2018 is strong and militant. Females may continue to fight for this cause worldwide, in every field of employment, within every culture, and within every home. The warrior energy of the SW is on their side to accomplish this.

The primary male energy of the NW bodes well for focused, patient and hard workers, and for as long as there is respect, honesty and integrity, otherwise the current backlash will continue to force into check the inbalance of power between men and women - TIMES UP!

Relationships fare well in general with the South and SW generating supportive, positive energies. However, watch for stagnation in relationships which may lead to affairs. Spice up your love life before temptation steps in!

Children's safety and well-being will continue to be in danger thru 2024.

WATER 2018:
Outdoor water for 2018 remains best in EAST - pool, jacuzzi or fountain - secondary choice is SW. NO water feature in NE until 2024.

Indoor water features such as fountain or aquarium?
1) May place moving water in the East to suppress the bad metal #7. It is allegedly better if the aquarium or fountain lives on the left side of the home/front door (the green dragon) and not the right side of the home/front door (the white tiger).
2) A table fountain in the SE may enhance the #8 wealth star.

a) Yin water is motionless (vase), Yang water is moving (fountain, aquarium).
b) Kitchens, bathrooms and laundry rooms represent draining water, not generating water such as a fountain or aquarium.
c) Never place aquarium in kitchen, bedroom or bathroom, center or the South - Never place moving water features - aquarium, water fountain - in Grand Duke's location (NW in 2018).

plant TIPS for Feng Shui 2018:

1) Colors of the year are water and wood - blues, black, greens

3) Salt water cures may be used in the West (2 star) and the North (5 star) this year 2018. Optionally, a super clean bowl of undisturbed water may be used instead, but the water must be changed often, left undisturbed, and remain clean and clear. If you use just a bowl of salt, change it every month.


 2) If your front door is located in the North, West, East or NE, place a pair of Fu Dogs there (on either side of the door on the outside) as protective guardians against all negative energies. Don't know why this works, but it does - Fu Dogs rock!

4) Anyone that has a dragon and phoenix statue or image, may try placement in the South for 2018.


SE 8
Wealth, success, prestige - South 4 Romance, career, travel, study, creativity.
NW 1
Career & luck - SW 6 Female warrior energy - Center 9 Celebration, joy.

North 5
Severe misfortune, double trouble - West 2 Illness, stress, accidents, bad luck.
East 7
Violence, robbery, abuse, deceit, backstabbng - NE 3 Disputes, hot tempers, legal issues.


a) If you believe an indoor water feature appears to be having a negative effect, remove it.
b) If any section appears negative, re-evaluate - tone down, remove object, or add/change to other elements/colors.
c) If you know how, check the natal flying star birth chart of your home, for conflict with annual visiting flying stars.

FYI Elements and Colors:

1) You absolutely do NOT have to buy strange Asian objects to activate or remedy your home - simply use the elements/objects you already have. However, having said that, there are five Asian objects we recommend which can be used every year - just remember that objects are as powerful as the energy you believe them to have.

Metal Pagoda - Rhino/Elephant - 6 Rod Wind Chime
- Metal Gourd (Wu Lou) - Pi Yao.

a) The Five Element Metal Pagoda - to protect against the nasty 5 earth star - 2018 in North.
b) A blue rhino and blue elephant - to protect against the 7 metal violence and robbery star - 2018 in East.
c) 6 rod metal outdoor wind chime - to protect against the 2 earth illness star and the nasty 5 earth star - 2018 West and North.
d) Metal gourd, known as a Wu Lou, which protects against the 2 earth illness star - 2018 in West. A second Wu Lou may be placed in North.
e) Pi Yao for protection - treat him as a pet and place him in SE facing NW in 2018 - if you have two Pi Yao, place the other in NW facing SE.

Every year - which begins in February - cleanse your objects by washing them in cold, salt water, and then allow them to dry in the sun for a few hours. Then, place the objects in the appropriate area for the new feng shui year.

2) Elements are stronger than colors - e.g. water is stronger than color blue, fire is stronger than color red, etc.
3) Be careful using fire and water elements! - they are very powerful energies and if placed incorrectly will block your intentions or create havoc.
4) For colors, use rugs, throws, towels, curtains, sheers, cushions, bedding, candles, lampshades, etc.
5) NO water in bedrooms ever - including fountains, aquariums, water scenes, etc.
6) No fire/candles in NW ever!

How to neutralize or activate element energy.

Creative Energy Flow:

WATER feeds WOOD feeds FIRE creates EARTH creates METAL supports WATER etc

SUPPRESS Hostile Energy Combinations:
 METAL suppresses EARTH extinguishes FIRE depletes WOOD exhausts WATER calms METAL etc

AVOID Hostile Energy Combinations:
upsets EARTH dams WATER extinguishes FIRE melts METAL destroys WOOD etc

Tip: to negate hostile combinations, add the element between the two.
i.e. Water extinguishes fire, so add wood to bridge them.


EVERYTHING in Creation is Energy!

Our health, wealth & relationships,
are simply a reflection of the energy,
we have chosen to embrace,
both within and without.
