The Year of the Fire Rooster is about to end and the year of the Earth Dog is fast approaching with a solar start on February 4, 2018 and a lunar start on February 16. Although the Lunar year is more celebrated, it is more appropriate to use the solar New Year for analysis in classical Feng Shui.
The year of the Earth Dog happens once every 60 years! The last time was in 1958 and before that in 1898. Each year brings a distinct Qi and the Dog years are creative and favorable to Arts and Academics.
