Year of the Earth Dog
Friday, February 16 will bring in the Chinese New Year, the most important social and economic holiday in China. Although it is a holiday derived from Chinese culture, celebrations are held all around the world, including Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
In Chinese astrology, each year is related to a Chinese zodiac animal according to the 12-year cycle. This year is the Earth Dog year, more specifically the Brown Earth Dog.
Each of the 12 zodiac signs in the Chinese paradigm is associated with certain qualities or predispositions. The Earth Dog is considered to be a fighter for justice, openness, tolerance, and innovation, while the Earth element is associated with greater environmental awareness.
As a result of this auspicious combination, some believe that 2018 could be a great year. There is hope that significant environmental progress can be made toward fighting climate change and related issues. Planet Aid hopes that these predictions become true and we will do our part to help make it so.
Happy New Year!
