Generally, for those under the sign of the Ox, 2018, the year of the Dog, will be a favorable one. We cannot say it is going to be a year characterized by trial and challenges; that is why the Ox is successful in accomplishing everything they wish for. The important thing is to switch from the passive state into an active state.
On a professional level, this year the Ox could enjoy the results of the efforts they have been making during the last period of time. They have been followed, observed and evaluated during last year; now, if there is the case of re-organizing or if any available positions appear, they are going to be among the ones considered for occupying these positions. The people in charge of making these decisions will consider it as a natural reward for their efforts and as recognition of their value and experience.
For those that are at the beginning of their career or are not yet sure which way to go, chances of finding a suitable position according to their training are encouraging. They are given trust and responsibilities. This is a test that they must be prepared to pass.
Their evolution on the professional level will definitely be felt on the financial level as well. The situations where they receive money that is being owned to them for a long while ago, as well as the situation where they receive retroactive loans, are also favorable for them. The extra money will certainly give them ideas on how to spend it; it would be better to save a part of that money.
The year of the Dog stimulates the creativity of the Ox. Wherever we are talking about decorations, aesthetics, design, balance, art their involvement could bring major satisfactions. Now, they can discover their talent in fields that they have never thought of before. The important thing is not to wait too long before getting to work or before trying; if they do, they could lose inspiration or favorable moments. Traveling stimulates their imagination; on the other hand, while being on the road, they could meet persons or go through events that could inspire them.
The social life is favorable; they are given credit and they are being appreciated for their way of being. They might get back together with colleagues or friends that they haven’t seen in a long while, and they could establish great relations with these people.
Their family is close to them and encourages their efforts. They want to make changes around them; renovate the house, re-arrange the garden or even move to another place. Their loved ones help them get over the moments of confusion or of lack of confidence in their aptitudes and talents.
• Those born in the year of the Water Ox are having a year when they re-discover talents and ambitions or when think about long-lost dreams. It is a good thing to ask for help from loved ones because they are glad to help. It is natural not to have the same vigor as they used to; but if they give themselves a reasonable amount of time to rest and relax, they will not have any major health problems.
• Those born in the year of the Wood Ox can have a year with many achievements as long as they seek to support and cooperation from other people. They manage to make new friends or admirers or even gain back on their side people that didn’t use to like them too much. Younger members of their families ask for a lot of their time and support; along with them, they can get involved in activities that will inspire them in their profession.
• For those born in the year of the Fire Ox, the Dog year can be seen as a stunt on a professional level. The experience they have accumulated so far and their energetic way of handling difficult situations can recommend them for superior posts and positions.
• The financial plan looks well; the income from the workplace increases, but there is also the possibility of an inheritance. The enthusiasm could make them think about some major investments, but they would better carefully think through their chances of success.
• Those born in the year of the Earth Ox can be reserved regarding the value and the level they have reached on the professional field, but they could ask the opinion of a competent person to clear this aspect out. Under these circumstances, a change of responsibilities could confuse them at first, but they could also have the joy of seeing that not all of their fears are being justified. Those that are not married yet start to seriously and decisively consider having a family. This year is favorable for women that are about to give birth or for those wanting to have a baby.
• Those born in the year of the Metal Ox and that are still in training, manage to obtain a clearer image on the steps they wish to follow on the professional level. They have the tendency to worry about their professional capacity and aptitudes regarding the route they want to follow, but these should stimulate them to learn and to train. Many would want to become financially independent from their families; however, hasted decisions cannot help them.
