In Chinese Astrology, each Zodiac year (rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig) is not just associated with an animal sign, but also one of five elements, which are metal, wood, water, fire, and earth.

The story of the Dog in Chinese Astrology is quite interesting, as the dog is considered to be man’s best friend who understands the human spirit and obeys its master, wealthy or poor. The Chinese regard this as an auspicious animal. So if a dog happens to randomly show up at your house, this is considered a symbol of good fortune to come. The invincible God Erlang in Chinese legends used a loyal wolfhound to help him capture monsters.
So at the stroke of midnight make sure and make a Wish to help usher in the spirit of good health, wealth, and prosperity!
