As 2018 is a Dog year, those born in a year of the Dog are forecast a downturn in luck. However, their fortune may take a turn for the better with correct alignment with the jealous God of Age star (Tai Sui). See more on Making Good Luck in Your Zodiac Animal Years.
For 2018, we first cover four aspects of fortune (wealth, career, love, and health) for the year, and then we chart the flow of luck month-by-month, according to the Chinese lunar calendar.
It's rather painstaking for Dogs to figure out an investment plan by themselves. Seeking help is advised. However, they will be greatly rewarded if they invest in the real estate industry, thermal power, and cultural and technical projects in 2018.
Though they are ambitious enough in their careers, Dogs will find it hard to get promoted in 2018, due to negative influences of their zodiac year of birth. Similarly, in academia, though they may study very hard, Dogs will struggle to bring out their best in examinations, resulting in below average performance.
Dogs will be enthusiastic enough to fall in love in 2018, due to their excellent state of mind. Though good fortune smiles less on male Dogs in 2018, it doesn't mean they cannot win the hearts of females, so it's only a matter of time.
On the whole, female Dogs are more vulnerable to bad luck in 2018. In love, they are prone to spoil one opportunity after another, due to their own pride and capriciousness.
On the health front, luck is rather bad for Dogs in 2018. They are very vulnerable to liver and gall diseases, respiratory tract infections, and limb injuries. What's worse, it's very likely for them to meet incidents involving bleeding and traffic accidents.
To avoid injuries, it's advisable for Dogs not to climb mountains and explore adventurously. Instead, they should exercise by frequently walking in woods and by rivers and lakes.
In Chinese astrology the traditional Chinese solar calendar is often used to determine zodiac months. Then the first month would begin within 2 days of February 5, and so on. However, we have used the Chinese lunar calendar for 2018 below, as it is most commonly used in "popular astrology".
For more on the differences between date systems in China, see The Chinese Calendar.
Month 1 in the Chinese lunar calendar is a rather stable month for Dogs in terms of their careers, and they will be assigned important jobs, due to great recognition from management, enhancing their positions in their companies.
In terms of relationships, females are vulnerable to emotional crises, and they should pay more attention to their partners, who will be more popular among the opposite sex.
Dogs should take opportunities to make an investment in January.
Meanwhile, great attention should be paid to their own health.
Dogs will make little progress in their careers due to lack of momentum in month 2, and it is the worst month for them career-wise.
With regard to luck in finances, they will make a lot of profit, due to adopting more prudent investment strategies.
Dogs will rebound abundantly both in health and relational fortune.
In month 3, it's hard for Dogs to solve their own problems, both in careers and in relationships, due to sudden changes, which result in bad performance and low income at work.
Emotional crises rise frequently this month.
Misunderstandings come readily between Dogs and their bosses in month 4, and their incomes decrease accordingly, due to poor performance at work.
Due to a concerning lack of luck in finances, Dogs should lower their telephone expenses and cut unnecessary spending.
April is a lucky month for single Dogs. Even though they may have quarrels with their lovers, fortunately their relationships won't be hurt.
Dogs will be in good health and high spirits in April.
Dogs' careers will struggle to take off in May, whose luck financially is also considerably limited, even though their profits can remain steady by prudent investment strategies.
As for romantic life, males meet more fortune in month 5. However, they should try to avoid digestive diseases.
Most Dogs will try to change their jobs in month 6, due to little progress being made in their current ones. Their fortune, bad or good, fluctuates greatly with their constantly changing ideas.
Little upturns filter into their relationships. However, they should take good care of themselves, to avoid falling ill from overwork.
Bad luck for Dogs stops temporarily at month 7. It is the best time for freelancers to get a good job and an opportunity for them to make a fortune.
Male Dogs will have more chances to win the hearts of their dream ladies in month 7.

Contradictive changes come into Dogs' lives in month 8. Therefore, Dogs should re-shape their ways of working, and keep good relationships with their colleagues in work.
Though many chances come the way of Dogs in month 9, they are rather disappointed with the final results of investments due to increased spending in their lives. Though they make a considerable fortune, it seems Dogs can hardly make both ends meet.
Male Dogs may face an embarrassing situation due to other men stepping into their relationships; therefore they should learn to properly protect their own relationships.
Luck in finances for Dogs greatly improves in month 10, and they will taste victory in making money. Meanwhile, Dogs should avoid unnecessary spending, though many a social engagement lies ahead.
Luck with money is not much above par for Dogs in month 11, though they need not worry about food and clothes.
Dogs will face great emotional crises, and they will be also vulnerable to sudden changes in life.
Jobs for Dogs are not stable in month 12, and they will change jobs that they have got used to and do simpler ones instead.
