A New Moon and partial Solar Eclipse occurs today at 4:06 PM EST in the sign of Aquarius. Today also kicks off a New Lunar Year! It’s time to wave goodbye to the Year of the Fire
Cock Rooster and say hello to the Year of the Earth Dog — which will reign until February 4th, 2019.
“2018 comes with a warning label: Don’t mess with the bitches! The Dog is associated with Western astrology’s Libra, the sign of equality and justice. The age-old, imbalanced power dynamics between men and women will continue to raise hackles in 2018. Domineering types who use their stature to intimidate, control and abuse the pack could be locked out of the doghouse. Dog years can be stabilizing for relationships, as the association with marriage-minded Libra will put folks in a mate-for-life mindset. Heavy petting, anyone? “I need more affection” may be a common cry in 2018. Couples should slow down and reconnect through touch. Single? You could find love through a pack-mate’s introduction, so don’t skip out on the group hangs. Tinder and dating apps could take a backseat to IRL meetups. During Dog years, body language and chemistry (yep, those pheromones are real) are the true litmus test—and can’t be sensed on screen.” -Astrotwins
