THE OX — 2009, 1997, 1985, 1973, 1961

The sign of the Ox is true to the real deal; strong and dependable. Just like the similarly loyal Dog you need to be needed and appreciated for how much effort you put into relationships.

This year your friends, family, and love interests show their appreciation in all the right ways, especially near the solar eclipse of July 12. Good fortune flows in 2018 when you surround yourself with the right people and start working on the right plans.

Start 2018 off romantically sound by taking it slow, getting to know your dates and enjoying the process. If you already have a significant other, allow yourself to get lost in the moment, forgetting your analytical nature.

THE DRAGON — 2012, 2000, 1988, 1976, 1964

Dragons do not always pair up well with the sign of the Dog, so this could be a difficult year for you. You want action and adventure and the slower vibes of the Dog are not always your speed.

But never fear, if you take advantage of your increased downtime to cultivate new self care skills, you will find yourself right on top where you belong.

Keep in touch with your health this year, especially around the solar eclipse of July 12. Burnout can be an issue with Dragons, so remember to balance work and play.

You do not tip toe around love, Dragons boldly take their shots and are not afraid to speak their minds. 2018 might be a change from your go to attitude about love as loyalty comes into play with all your relationships, especially romantic ones.

Give yourself time to build trust in relationships instead of rushing in, and know when to let go if you are not getting the treatment you deserve. Wait for the second half of the year for you relationships to really take off!

When it comes to love, Snakes can be quite the player and 2018 will be no different. There may be less variety this year if you are looking, but the ones who do come your way will be more stable and loyal.

The slow pace and simplicity of the Year of the Dog forces you to be your authentic self in love.

That may not always be easy but honesty is always the best policy in romance. September and October promise some crazy romantic nights so buckle up!

THE MONKEY — 2016, 2004, 1992, 1980, 1968

Monkey signs are very used to the spotlight, but this year that takes a back seat and you may find yourself having to get comfortable being uncomfortable. Be a team player at work for the best results, and in love let other people in to better both of you.

The winter months allow your inner creativity to shine, providing some connections that could help boost your career. Friends and family are more important than ever, use them to make yourself happier and healthier in 2018.

THE ROOSTER — 2017, 2005, 1993, 1981, 1969

The Year of the Dog will be a little of an adjustment period for you Roosters. You are used to being the center of attention, but the slower style of the Dog demands your attention be focused inwards.

This will be a year of great success with work and money, but be wary of uncomfortable situations with some people you may not like. Being a team player at work means snagging your bosses’ attention and getting some good opportunities down the line.

Wait for the end of the summer to see some major improvements in your love life, use that opportunity to show how much you can bring to relationships.

Love may be rocky this year as your energy crashes with that of the Dog. The summer months will be perfect for getting out there and mingling.

Roosters in relationships should get ready for some important new steps, whether that is wedding bells or a new apartment. July 12 is a good time for friends and family to help celebrate your romantic relationships.
