The Chinese Year of the Fire Dog
January 29, 2006 - February 17, 2007
By the Astrocenter Team
Welcome to the Year of the Fire Dog - a year where loyalty is king and helping the underdog is generously rewarded. Compassion and kindness are key. In the business world, teamwork pays off when being an integral part of the pack gets you noticed. And don't even think about anything sneaky or subversive: you can be sure that anything less than complete honesty will be sniffed out right away. Anyone exhibiting bad behavior can expect to be sent to the doghouse without a second thought.
Fire Dogs love others fully, come rain or shine, unless someone gives them strong reason not to. The Fire Dog is more defiant, but not unless attacked first or treated unfairly. In 2006, you'll have to get in there early and work late to keep up with Dog-stars who will stay one jump ahead. There's a strong code of ethics in demand, as well as a call for "brothers" and "sisters" to band together. People want the truth in the Year of the Dog, and that is exactly what will be revealed.
The Year of the Fire Dog begins January 29, 2006. Check your Chinese sign below, and learn new tricks that will make you one lucky dog!
Rats can expect romantic ups and downs and tests of loyalty in the Year of the Dog. The ups occur with friends who are kindred spirits. The downs happen when you are not tactful but outrageously, excessively outspoken.This year you should be well-paid for devoted service. Be sure to get busy or start saving for rainy days if you haven't been doing your job! Physically, you are a whirlwind. You will do to apply some of that excess energy to the social cause or community effort of your choice in the Year of the Fire Dog.
Romantically, Oxen place physical appearance high on their list of qualities. No, you won't be attracted to "dogs" in the Year of the Dog, but you'll be drawn to other, more valuable traits that make relationships more enduring than looks alone. In this light, you should find love. The fiery year stirs your passion, including a temper somewhat on edge, especially when people violate your principles. You take work seriously, with a traditional eye on the future. You desire money and power and you could get one, the other or both as rewards for faithful past service.
Give and you shall receive, especially in personal relationships. You'll make better romantic choices initially. You intuit whether someone is right or wrong for you and you learn to trust your wise inner teacher's advice. You make and retain lots of friendships in 2006. If you've been a cooperative, loyal Tiger, you reap the rewards that you deserve. If not, your company has you by the tail and your tail could be out the door in a year when loyalty rules. On a positive note, you show enthusiasm and versatility. This could be the year you open that lucrative little side business you have dreamed and talked about.
This year, you had better work on enhancing bunny pluck and nerve. A jumpy or shy Rabbit misses the warm and easy friendships available in the year ahead. 2006 could bring the loyal mate on your wish list. Yes, many people are finally going to grasp the idea that honesty is the best policy in the Year of the Dog. Valuable acquaintances multiply professionally. Your company is more likely to reward you for faithful service and to recognize your leadership skills. It is a year to shine!
Are you serious? Are you devoted to the truth? If not, you have to be in the Year of the Dog. You can't make it your way, anyway. In other words, one can't throw Dragon-like hissy fits and expect to be forgiven in a flash. The good news is that you easily make lots of professional friends, but you do have to stay around and demonstrate reliability. The scene changes for single Dragons, when looks aren't as important as what's on the inside. Sweet, humble and lovable Dragon, it's a rewarding year when you accentuate the positives.
Boo! Hiss! The Year of the Dog is not one of your easiest years. Conditions improve by being up front, with honesty as "the best policy" rather than being coiled and ready to strike. The sincere approach is necessary when people are prone to sniffing things out that others don't want them to know. Get ready to network and mingle, because loners are quickly cut out of the pack. Dating Snakes are charismatic and attract attention. The romantic caveat is that, in love, boa constrictors need not apply. A mate needs space and will growl and snap if it is denied.
It is a good year for you, dear Horse. Business Dog-types adore and protect anyone who is neither narrow-minded nor selfish - which of course, you are not! Your boundless energy is just fine, thank you. Just polish up patience and flexibility. There will be lots of changes and tweaking to get plans to come together. It's a good thing you can be ready to travel at a moment's notice, because you could be on the move a lot. Dating Horses are lucky in love in 2006, as are Horse couples. Singles are easily distracted, so there may be more than a few affairs going on. Better postpone making a commitment.
The Year of the Dog is a good one for Goats! Where others lack consistency, you are the one that concerned canines can depend on to turn their dreams into realities, because you care too. In 2006, your networking connections become expansive so keep in touch now and in the future. Loving Goats discover it is best to start relationships as friendships, the best foundation upon which to build. While grand for business and love, you could find yourself with depleted cash flow if you entertain lavishly and overextend financially, which is unnecessary to impress humble Dogs.
Monkeys can flirt until blue in the face, while also whispering sexy innuendos, but neither approach works in a Doggie-type world. The winning approach is a moralistically true one. Forget pretending to be that. You've got to prove it every day, and can with the right person. Business gets serious in 2006. Not that you would intentionally deceive, but get ready for any deception or hint of it to be "sniffed out." Perpetrators are caught and punished, and deservedly so. It's payback time. On a positive note, share your creative ideas, bright Monkey. Dog-types love them.
2006 may not be something to crow about. You remain competitive, highly motivated and single-minded, but then that is your style. In 2006, such behavior may give others the impression of abrasiveness! You get growled and snapped at by Dog-types who expect a peace-loving and loyal team spirit, so start mustering some. Nitpicking and dissing others to make yourself look good doesn't work in Doggie-land. Single Roosters fight for the right to love the one they want and won't give up until they win an elusive heart. "No" turns to "Yes," or vice-versa, depending on finesse.
A "fire" in the Year of the Dog stimulates confidence and energy. You make a difference no matter what cause you choose to fight for or which underdog you reach out to, and there are many. You are sweet, warm, and loving, but won't be pushed around either - and that is a good thing. Sometimes people take too much advantage, but not this year. In 2006, you'll show management that you are a leader, not just a follower. And, if they don't appreciate your talent, well, someone else will. Single Dogs are charismatic and it is your year for enduring love. Don't rush into something. Your special year is twelve months long!
You've got fire in your eyes in 2006, sweet Pig. Those who know you best (or as well as anyone can really know you - even your own self) will say, "The old you is back and better than ever." You are more willing to try and become richer in many ways, including monetarily. Romance is a risk you are brave and confident enough to take. Being a loyal partner who offers unconditional friendship is easy for you. Since you place a high value on the same, your more questionable aiders, abettors and enablers seem too superficial. Old acquaintances are forgot. You are more content day-by-day in your long-term union, simply and beautifully motivated by love.
