The “Purple Benefactor Star” auspiciously shining on the charts of the Dog implies having the presence of powerful, noble, and beneficial people who will give them sincere assistance and support when needed. So they should nurture and value these relationships and these people around them. This is akin to having the Emperor on your side. They should have the confidence to go for their dreams. Having this star will help them overcome obstacles and petty people. This helps bring success in career, good fortune, smooth executions of projects, reaching of targets, heightened clarity and foresight, abundant opportunities, business, and money luck. Therefore, it will be good to set clear goals and targets at the start of the year as great accomplishments await them. The noble people around them will bring opportunities to grow their wealth.
This also means that they will encounter numerous opportunities from their network of connections. It will be good to go out and socialize to further enhance their network opportunities. They should keep in mind to give credit where credit is due and acknowledge the people around them. It is the people you meet on the way up that will help you when times get rough. They should strengthen their relationships both at work and at home. But amid all the social functions and events, they should pay special attention to their diet and food. They should be conscious about getting enough sleep and eating healthy. They should also not neglect spending time with their family and loved ones.
This auspicious star also bodes well for their career and business. This means that they will be able to start or finally complete projects that have long been in the making. It is the chance for them to show their capabilities and skills and build a name for themselves in their chosen field.
Opportunities for career breakthroughs will open up for them. But to be worthy of being given the top position, they should be honest with themselves and take stock of what they can really do. If they feel there is room for improvement in whatever aspect they zero in on, then this year is the time to work on it.
To further enhance this, it will be good for them to have a Golden Cicada on their work desk to help them become the star in their chosen corner of the world.
The “Dragon Virtue Star” helps the Dog keep misfortune and enemies under control. It helps convert the negative into positive and gives them an overall sense of positivity. This auspicious star offers protection and enables them to dissolve trouble easily. This will enable them to mitigate undesirable situations and successfully deal with whatever problems that may arise. It brings them that power to bring negative issues to an end. Therefore, they may encounter a lot of moments of receiving blessings in disguise throughout the year. This star allows them to pursue their ambitions and go for long-shelved projects.
Having a Dragon Emperor Throne will help them maximize the luck of this star. The “Sky Disaster Star” makes the Dog prone to small and minor accidents. They should not brush off trivial matters and take the necessary travel and safety precautions. They should be wary of their surroundings to avoid losing things or getting robbed. It will be good to invest in travel insurance and be choosy about their travel destinations. They should be careful when driving, crossing the street, or handling tools and machinery.
It also may sound trivial, but they should be focused at whatever task they have at hand like putting on their pants or getting out of the shower or going up the stairs. This is because one small misstep can bring minor but inconvenient accidents. If they don’t pay heed to this star it may affect their health and well-being and rain on the parade of the auspicious stars.
It is best to always carry a Safety Medallion with them at all times.
The presence of the “Sudden Defeat Star” means that the Dog has to be vigilant to sudden changes. This star has a way of making things turn the other way and not go as expected. Sudden and impulsive decisions may also bring sudden losses. They should keep in mind that even if they do have numerous auspicious stars favorably shining on them, it does not give them license to be rash and take big risks. As with anything, it is best if they consult a professional first and turn to their benefactors for advice.
When it comes to their health, it will always be good to get a second opinion. They should not take unnecessary risks and have a backup plan. Sometimes though, the effect of this star is quite trivial but annoying, nonetheless. It could manifest as delayed schedules or setbacks in timetables, so it is still best if they plan ahead and allow for some leeway. They should double-check time schedules and be meticulous about their documents, dates, deadlines, and expiration dates such as visa expiry date and the like.
The "Sky Sha Star" indicates that the Dog will get easily into arguments with other people around you. Keep your temper in check so that this will not lead to more conflict. This star also denotes that important people around you may not lend you the support you need, and may make you feel that you are dealing with challenges and obstacles all alone. This may be more psychological than not, so be realistic when requesting help from others so as not to be disappointed.
Possible health issues may arise for the Dog this year due to the presence of the “Yellow Flag Star." They should then be conscious of this and prioritize their health and well-being above all else. They should be wary of potential injuries and accidents that may come up, so they do not expose themselves to unnecessary risk if possible.
As long as they adopt a healthy lifestyle, address health issues as soon they crop up and give themselves time to sleep and rest, then this shouldn’t be too worrisome.
It is best if they have a Brass Longevity Peach on their bedside table and in the appropriate sector of their home or bedroom.
You will have a push this year to expand your career or your business. As a result, try to seek help from experts in the field or your superiors at work to take advantage of their experience and their nuggets of wisdom. Collaborate with peers and colleagues as well to get more results than you would get than if you did things on your own. Try to foster your relationship with your family as well this year to bring you more luck.
For the Fire Dogs, aim to find activities to keep you engaged and learning continuously. This will help your emotional and social well-being. Don’t give your trust easily to people you don’t know or those that reach out to you out of the blue. Pay attention to your health and eat more nutritious food, avoid ones that are detrimental to health, and exercise regularly.
This is a good year to be bold and push the envelope with your career and your investments. Make sure you balance the risk and rewards and don’t aim for a quick buck. Don’t act impulsively and study things carefully. You may be able to start a business venture that you’ve been contemplating or a new role or job that you’ve been thinking about. Be careful when traveling this year to avoid accidents.
The year looks promising for your career, as there will be opportunities to increase your scope and your breadth of work, and you will get recognition for it. Embrace these opportunities to show your talents to the world. You will have the help of backers and you will achieve your goals easily if you seek out their help. Choose your collaborators carefully and make sure they are trustworthy and have your back.
Innovation and new ideas will be important for you this year to achieve the best results, so put on your thinking cap and involve others to brainstorm creative ideas for a business venture, expansion or corporate project. Ensure diversity of thought in your team so that you can get the best possible ideas from different areas. Don’t fall victim to complacency and always try to push yourself forward.
