Hi everybody, long time no see, I know 🙂
I would like to apologize for neglecting this blog; it seems Ox month had quite an impact on me, reducing my weak Fire almost to zero, which caused massive writing blockage, and general low productivity, while demand from our users grew significantly larger.
Maybe you don’t know, but new, Dog year, started on 4. February, so we are now officially out of Rooster year. Traditionally, Chinese celebrate New Year sometimes between 15th January and 15th February, but astrologically, and for birth chart analysis purposes, Chinese New Year always starts around 4th or 5th February. This is the time of year when the reign of Water Element ends, and we enter the Wood period.
So, we are now in Dog year, precisely, an Earth Dog. So what does it mean?
The Dog itself is a combination of robust Yang Earth and solid Yin Fire, with a small amount of weak Yin Metal. We usually call Dog a dry Earth, because of this combination of Fire and Earth. On top of this, it’s an Earth Dog, which means the emphasis on Earth is quite big this year.
Earth element represents stability, trust, and loyalty, but with occasional eruptions of Fire, something like a volcano.
What is also important is the strength of your chart and overall balance between elements. So for example, if your chart has a lot of Water element, Earth Dog will be highly beneficial because it will challenge the Water and push it into work mode.
If your Water element is fragile, this excessive Earth will diminish it even further and put the chart into negative mode.
If you have a lot of wet Wood (Strong Wood in combination with solid Water), the Earth influence will be positive. If you have a dry Wood (strong Wood with solid Fire and no Water), the Dog will very likely create a strong Fire & Earth combo, making the chart too hot, which is not good.
If you have a dry and weak Metal, which means that you have no Water at all in your chart, Dog’s hot Earth might break that Metal, making it dysfunctional.
So, as you can see, there are a lot of different combinations and scenarios, but if you would like to find out more, I will be answering questions for 20 USD a piece, through Earn.com platform. Just follow this link, signup for an account, search for me in their database and send me your question.
This is a short-term special offer, the price will go up after some time.
