Lainey Gossip’s Year of the Dog Predictions for Roosters

In Chinese astrology, 2018 is the Year of the Dog. With a little help from her Ma, FLARE columnist Elaine Lui tells you what’s in store

The 2018 Chinese New Year Symbol for Year of the Rooster.

Those born under the sign of the Rooster will have a sunny star shining on them during this Year of the Dog. The sunny star could bring career glory. But do not rush your luck. And be careful who you trust. Those in the sun will always attract jealousy. Which means that betrayal is never far away. Also, because you’re in the sun, you have to watch your heat levels; as previously noted, the heat is on this year because of the energy from the element of Fire. Stay healthy. Be vigilant about injuries.

Roosters may have some major decisions to make this year, decisions that could have an impact for many, many years to come. Be ready for them and take them seriously.

1945 Water Rooster Since water hinders fire, Roosters born this year might have some night luck: money that comes in when the sun is down, like from gambling or the lottery.

1957 Fire Rooster It’s going to be busy for Roosters born this year, a lot of work could run you down, and since you are of fire during a year of Fire, you should take time to relax, don’t go beyond your limits and make sure to get lots of rest.

1969 Earth Rooster You may benefit from the attention of a generous benefactor this year who will help you achieve great success at work. Don’t forget to be thankful.

1981 Wood Rooster You will be an inspiration this year to people who look to you as a model for achievement.

1993 Metal Rooster There may be successful entrepreneurial opportunities for Roosters born this year and you could see solid gains in business.

2005 Water Rooster This young Rooster may be vulnerable to distractions this year. If you have one in your life or if you are the parent of one, watch over them closely, pay attention and try not to miss any signs.

Love should be smooth for all Roosters during the Year of the Dog, if you can avoid the Fire and maintain your chill. If you are a single Rooster, be open to romance and “go for it,” Ma says. If you are a coupled Rooster, celebrate your anniversary or go on holiday. That said, remember the sunny star that’s shining on you this year. You don’t want to get too hot on holiday. Travel and have fun but manage your risks. Don’t let any hasty, silly lapses in judgement bring down your shine.

All Roosters should be attentive to health changes this year. See the doctor as soon as the Lunar New Year begins for a full checkup with full blood work. Be particularly cautious about your bones.

Between March 5 and April 4, watch your investments. Don’t be greedy or it will cost you everything. And mind your step, like actually. Don’t trip.

May and June mark the beginning of Fire season. Manage your moods. Stay calm if there are relationship conflicts. Do not let small arguments get out of control. If you’re able to mitigate the heat or avoid it, you may get away with a small cut. If not, you risk a bigger cut. Cuts can be figurative and literal.

In July and August, there’s a swindle alert. Do not trust too easily.

In September and October, you should approach decisions and dilemmas without drama, calmly. There may be many around you offering opinions, wanting to have their say. Clear your head, block out the noise and do what is best for you, not them.

There are romantic possibilities between December 7 and January 5, 2019. This is a great time to meet new people, to get out and socialize, go on holiday. You’ll have a great time during this period, all the way until February 3, 2019, but don’t get out of hand with the partying and do not lower your defenses. Remember that luck does not enjoy arrogance and doesn’t reward the irresponsible.
