One billion people worldwide joined the celebrations on Friday for the start of the Chinese New Year. One billion people, a bucket load of influence on consciousness even if you’re a non-believer of Chinese horoscopes.
What influence therefore does the year of the Dog have on you as a Sensitive?
2018 is the first year since 1982 when the year of the Dog has fallen in a ‘2’ vibration year. Back then, it was a Water Dog year, more emotional than 2018 will be. 1982 saw the release of Michael Jackson’s Thriller, the Falklands War, the death of Princess Grace and a major recession in the US. All of these examples were emotional energies leaving a lasting impression.
2018 the energy will be different even though it’s a ‘2’ frequency. Why? It’s because this time the Dog energy is earth based. This is great for Sensitives, it’s your opportunity to focus on being grounded, creating security and finding your balance as you move forward.
2018 is a Yang Earth Dog – this means it’s a year of externals, getting into order what is important to you. Mixed with your sensitivity it means no more procrastination, begin to allow yourself the big life changes you want to create, each step you take today will take time (which suits the Sensitive) but leads to massive adjustment and some of the biggest growth steps of your life.
But, I hear you say…
“I’m not making any progress, I try and try…”
If your goals in life are purely materialistic, to have more, for others to want you, or to be accepted, you’ll continue to be disappointed. Not even the positive influence of the Earth Dog can help you. If you keep trying but feel nothing is changing, then it’s time to address your motivation.
If motivation is externally driven, to try and fit in with what actually feels broken to you, then no matter how much you try, you’ll feel it’s a dead end. It’s time to be emotionally honest.
What’s the alternative to external motivations?
Switch to intrinsic motivation – intrinsic goals are centred around your values as a Sensitive, they relate to yourself and your personal growth, your emotional health and relationships. They are based on what you want, what your values are, not those passed through the generations or society.
This is a fantastically supportive year, use it. Chinese astrology says Dogs are honest, loyal, true friends and your most reliable partner. They’re anxious inside but they don’t let that stop them.
In this year of the Dog start to be your own loyal, true friend and reliable partner, even if you’re anxious inside. Stop hankering after perfection. Perfection is constantly evolving; it exists momentarily because change is forever present. Perfection requires stagnation. As an Intuitive-Sensitive stagnation is never present, therefore you can never achieve perfection or would you want to. So stop looking for it – the ‘I’ll be happy when…’ is the never ending story.
Being your own loyal, true friend doesn’t mean you need to be a lone wolf, far from it, it means use that path towards security that the ‘2’ and the Dog offer during the year ahead.
Lone wolves in this ‘2’ year of the Earth Dog will find themselves lashing out, causing havoc, chaos and overly attached to the past, a stubborn dogma flowing harshly through their life. If you’re around one you’ll get bitten in 2018, ripped apart and infected by their spiralling negative disease.
As a Sensitive, choosing your intrinsic motivations this year, will naturally keep you from the path of the rabid lone wolves, towards deeper more fulfilling relationships and connection to your inner- most beauty, without giving a flying pig poo (technical term) what anyone else thinks.
