Chinese Horoscope for 2019
Like actual dogs, you can always count on a Chinese zodiac dog person to make a faithful friend. They will always be there when you need them. They do better in one-on-one compared to being in a group. They are likely to have a talent or other quality that will make them stand out in a group.
You are likely a dog person if you were born in any of these years: 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, and people who will be born in 2018 will also be dog people.
2018 has been quite a tumultuous year for Dogs. Fortunately, things are about to take a turn for the better and provide a much needed reprieve.
While Dogs are generally regarded as protectors, it is they who will be protected this year as the Pig ushers in some much needed fortune.
It's possible Dogs may feel a bit out of place this year as differences between them and Pig will become evident. Dogs will have to match the Pig’s direct and simple approach to succeed this year and this may take some practice.
Dogs are naturally cautious and analytical, but to ensure success they will have to adopt the more “easy going” and unmediated approach of the Pig in order to seize the opportunities this year holds. There is also a degree of simple charm that dogs will have to learn in order to make the most of 2019.
Many people might think of the pig as a fat little animal that we eat every now and then. We rarely stop to look at some of the good traits of these animals. In Chinese astrology, each of the signs is named after an animal, one of these signs being the pig. People who are born under the year of the pig are said to have many of the good traits of the pig.
You may have been born under the sign of the pig or the boar if you were born in any of these years, or if someone will be born in these years: 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007 and 2019.
The year of one’s zodiac sign is their 本命年 (ben ming nian). It is traditionally the most unlucky year with trouble and danger lurking at every corner.
Similar to the previous year, Pigs may find luck in some areas of their life, but others will require hard work to avoid potential pitfalls. Pigs will most likely experience many emotional ups and downs, making them feel frustrated and sad at times.
This will not be a transitional year for Pigs, and it is best to try and “stick it out” in situations if at all possible. While that can be terribly frustrating, try to remember that a key element to utilizing your luck is timing. Next year will bear good fruit for Pigs, but the time isn’t right to harvest the fruits of your labor. Instead, familiarize yourself with possible oversights and improve upon them so you may take advantage of similar situations as they occur in the future. This is a key element in many Asian religions, that is to say, you may be stuck consulting the same problem over and over until you solve it.
In order to bring as much good luck as possible to your year, it’s a good idea to attend happy events such as weddings or family gatherings. It’s also not a bad idea to pray for safety at your favorite temples over the course of the year in order to shield yourself from bad luck. As always, try to avoid places with overly negative Qi such as hospitals and graveyards.
