The Dog in 2024

Continuing with the blog series to help bring awareness to the good and the bad opportunities every animal will experience in 2024, the Year of the Wood Dragon.  The solar cycle year is used in Chinese Astrology and starts February 4th, 2024.  This is different than the Lunar New Year, that starts February 10.

The Dog is the Eleventh of 12 animals in the Chinese Zodiac. If you have the Dog in your chart, get read to receive some blessings.

The Dog can appear in the month, day, hour and year of your birth chart as well as your luck cycle.  Click here to get your Natal Chart.

Dog Years

 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018

Note that Chinese Astrology uses solar years and they start around February 4.  If you were born in January, your year of birth is the previous animal.  Use our free resource to verify

2024 Outlook

2023 was a “fiery” year for the Dog.  On the positive side, the energies may have ignited passion, but also anger on the negative side.  This year offers you a chance for a shift, because the Dog is the opposing animal of the year, much like the Rooster was last year. 

Dragon year is here to shine the spot light on what is no longer working.  Experiencing some obstacles means that is time to let go of the "stuck & stale" energies and transmute the situation into something positive. The choice is yours to take.

Career 2024

When the Dog is your month animal, this means there is a shift either in your career or work sector. Either a change in boss, nature of work, relationship with colleges…

Your past efforts and contributions will gain awards and recognition. This is very exciting.

Take this experience as a chance for growth.  Is this the direction you are after? Does this bring you happiness?

From a general perspective, this pillar can also affect family relationships.

Best Months:  February, March, June

Caution Month:  April

Note: this is based on solar months that start and end between the 4th or 8th of the month.  Exact dates are described on our weekly #WisdomWednesday publications

Health Outlook

This is not the year to seek comfort as there may be some obstacles to overcome.

Clear the anger from 2023, because it can express itself through words and may come out at the worse time, affecting your relationships.  This can cause a lot of stress, much like a volcano erupting.  


Having the Dog in your chart means that one can be very set in their ways, particularly if there are more than one dog or earth elements in the chart.  Take change as a gift that helps growth and expansion.

Be mindful of what is between your ears and what you carry in your heart.

We review the energies of the Pig next week - the last animal in the Zodiac. Based on our previous #WW you know good things are coming your way!
