2018 Year of the Dog

2018 is the Year of the Dog in Chinese astrology!

year-of-dog-2018

Guess who is a dog?

Me! Guess again… President Trump! There is a bit of difference as I am an Earth dog and he is a fire dog, the same as Bill Clinton. Fire dogs are very intelligent, driven to succeed and have fiery personalities. Earth dogs are more calm and grounded, more friendly and chatty. Both are devoted to making the world a better place.

You are a dog if:

1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994 or 2006 is your birth year.

What do dogs symbolize?

Think of a golden retriever! Always want to help. Cheerful and friendly. Enjoy chatting and being social with people. Devoted to family and friends. Carefully observe what’s going on around them. They like lots of praise, petting, adoration and want to be fawned over by the public. Have a strong sense of duty and will protect younger/disabled or poor/disadvantaged people. Serious about achieving goals. Homebodies. Like having a plan and doing the same things over and over out of habit. Usually a faithful friend and lover but gets jealous! Usually a traditional, conservative person who likes God and country. Works in traditional jobs like teacher, police, trade union member, construction worker, nurse, nun or priest. If active in politics or writing, are usually conservative like Republican or Christian Right.

Number nine year in Chinese astrology

As numbers count up to 10, nine is in the homestretch, near the end. People have become wiser. They are less likely to believe lies by politicians, et all. They’re ready to rise up and demand the truth! It’s another year of social activism, like the #metoo movement, which was Time magazine’s cover of the year for 2017.

Nine years are very busy and stressful.

It’s as if you’re trying to get everything done before the end. Can be exhausting and too much for people. Be sure to live a healthy lifestyle – don’t overindulge – so you can deal with all the stress. It feels like you’re pushing the accelerator on a fast car! Lots of things are happening in the world and in your home.

Overall, nine years are forecast to be good years!

You can make money starting a new business, earn more in your current line of work and have better cash flow. More money means an increase in social status. Don’t be slow about making business decisions. In a nine year, it’s go go go. Take action!

In 9 years, honest business practices are rewarded.

Are you doing something good for the world? Working on environmental problems means a gold star for you! Or on social justice problems like income inequality. The government and big business will invest more and more in green energy (wind, solar), recycling programs and cleaner technologies. These are good industries to be in.

Good colors to wear, display, use in business advertising:

Green, symbolizing the Earth and environmental protection
Blue, symbolizing water and keeping oceans and rivers clean
Black, symbolizing the entire Universe which needs to be cared for and protected

Learn Tarot: The Indigo Card

Did you know the Tarot deck has an indigo card? Indigos are a new breed of person that is on Earth to shake things up! They are activists and politicians. The opposite of a shrinking violet, indigos are bold and energetic and ready to fight for change. Think of the tip of a sharp spear or Sword. They may ruffle some feathers along the way.* Paris Jackson seems like an indigo to me. Not only does she dress very bohemian, but she also talks about causes like the Dakota Access Pipeline. Another Indigo is Adam Rippon, the flamboyant gay activist from the Olympics who took on President Trump and Vice President Trump for not being gay-friendly. He also skated a beautiful, artsy routine about a wounded peacock (his shirt was ombre teal and white with lots of sparkles, like a peacock wing).

Princess of Winter/chilly Air/sharp Swords

Tarot hint: to remember that Winter is also Air, I always write down “chilly Air.”

Princess = Page = Messenger

*In the Animal Tarot deck by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine, the indigo card is a seagull.

Certified Angel Tarot Reader

My certification for reading Tarot

I got my certification as an Angel Tarot Reader through Radleigh Valentine’s program 🙂 I like the way he teaches. It’s very easy. You don’t read the upside-down cards as having a separate meaning. I tried a few times over the years to learn Tarot from books, and the explanations of the cards were like half-a-page to a page each, with another half-a-page of different meanings for when the card comes in upside-down. Impossible to memorize! I took a few pages of notes from Radleigh’s videos (it’s an online course through Hay House) and then came up with my own simple explanations for all of the major arcana (0-21) cards. And my own way to remember each of the suits (Summer/Hearts, Winter/Thoughts, Spring/Fire and Autumn/Coins).

I am loving reading Tarot now!

Big future plans

I even have plans to make my own super easy Tarot card deck 🙂

For now, you can order Angel Tarot Card Readings here on my blog. Coming soon: an Etsy shop.

Aliens are Real

In 2018, one of the psychic predictions is that more people will see UFOs flying around. And more governments will admit that they have kept records on UFO sightings FOR YEARS! And have taken them seriously, especially when reported by pilots or policemen.
