The 2018 Chinese New Year Day is on Friday, February 16, 2018. This day is the new moon day of the first Chinese lunar month in the Chinese Lunar Calendar system. The exact new moon time is at 05:06 on 16-Feb-18 in China's time zone.

2018年农历新年日是2018年2月16日星期五。这一天是中国农历正月初一的农历新年。 确切的新月时间是中国时区的2月16日05:06。

Chinese calendar combines solar, lunar and 60 Stem-Branch counting systems. The 60 Stem-Branch calendar uses the names of Yin Yang Five Elements (Metal, Water, Wood, Fire and Earth) and 12 animals to rank the sequences. Five elements are connected to five colors - White, Black, Green, Red, and Brown. So Chinese use the color animal name to count the year. The name of 2018 is the Yang Male Earth Dog. Brown is connected to Earth. Therefore, 2018 is also called Brown Earth Dog Year.

The first day of the Brown Dog is not the Chinese New Year in Chinese Astrology. The first day of the Tiger month is the first day of the Chinese Astrology year. This day is called Start of Spring, which is the date when the sun enters the 315th degree on the tropical zodiac. This day is around February 4, each year. 2018 Chinese Brown Dog starts on February 4, 2018 in China's time zone. That means Chinese Lunar New Year is not the first day of Brown Dog Year. If a baby is born February 5, 2018, then baby's zodiac sign is the Dog, not Chicken.

中国农历是同时考虑到太阳及月球运动和天干地支60甲子, 60甲子日历使用阴阳五行(金,水,木,火和土)和12只动物的名字来排列序列。五个元素连接到五种颜色 - 白色,黑色,绿色,红色和棕色。所以中国人使用颜色动物的名字来计算年份。 2018年是土狗年。棕色代表五行中的“土”。因此,2018年也被称为棕色土狗年。

 棕色狗的第一天不是中国的占星术中的中国新年。虎年的第一天是中国占星术年的第一天。这一天被称为春天的开始,这是太阳进入赤道315度的日期。这一天是每年2月4日左右。 2018年中国棕色狗于2018年2月4日在中国时区开始。这意味着中国农历新年不是棕色狗年的第一天。如果一个婴儿出生于2018年2月5日,那么宝宝的星座是狗,不是鸡。

How Old is the China?

DadiwanThe Chinese believe that the first king of China was the Yellow King (he was not the first emperor of China). The Yellow King became king in 2697 B.C., therefore China will enter the 4715th year on February 16, 2018. Also, the Chinese Year uses the cycle of 60 Stem-Branch counting systems and the Male Earth Dog is the 35th Stem-Branch in the cycle. Since 4715 = (60 *78) + 35, therefore 2018 of Earth Dog Year is the 4715th Chinese Year.

 中国人认为中国的第一任国王是黄帝(他不是中国的第一位皇帝)。 黄帝在公元前2697年成为国王,因此中国将于2018年2月16日进入第4715年。此外,中国年利用了60个干支计数系统的循环,而土狗则是第35支干支周期。 由于4715 =(60 * 78)+35,因此2018年土狗年是第4715届中国年。

 Some web sites say the year 2018 is the 4716th Chinese year. If you cannot find the explanation, here is a possible answer for you. The Yellow King's inauguration was held in the spring of 2697 B.C. But the calendar of Yellow King used the winter solstice day as the first day of the year. The winter solstice was on around December 23rd, 2698 B.C. Today's January 1st means nothing to Yellow King. If we count that extra eight days in 2698 B.C. for a year, then year 2018 is the 4716th Chinese year.

有些网站说2018年是中国第4716个年头。 如果你找不到解释,这里可能的答案是。 黄帝的就职典礼于公元前2697年春天举行。 但黄历将冬至日作为一年中的第一天。 冬至是公元前2698年12月23日左右。 今天的1月1日对黄帝没有任何意义。 如果我们把这个额外的八天计算在公元前2698年 一年,2018年是第4716个中国年。

 2018 is the 4715th Chinese Year. However, Chinese civilization is up to 8000 years. The Dadiwan relics show the civilization of houses, palaces, cooking tools, color pottery, weapons, artifacts and agriculture. Archaeologists doubt the I-Ching was invested there.

2018年是第4715届中国年。 然而,中国文明历史长达8000年。 大地湾遗址展示了房屋,宫殿,烹饪工具,彩陶,武器,文物和农业的文明。 考古学家怀疑“易经”起源于那个时代。

What's meaning of Brown Dog?

 

 E Sky5  E Dog  C Sky5  C Earth11

 The Brown Earth Dog name is from the Chinese Stem-Branch calendar. The first Stem-Branch name is found in the document around 1739 B.C. The original stems and branches only use for counting the days. Using Stem-Branch to count for Month, Hour and Year sequences began around 206 B.C. during Chindynasty and Han dynasty. That idea might come from Chinese Yin Yang Five Element scholars. Therefore, all zodiac signs can be converted into five elements. For example, Dog is equivalent to Male Earth. If we find all the Earth Dog connections from Chinese calendar, Five Elements and I-Ching philosophy, then we can foresee what signs will come in the year of the Brown Dog.

棕色土狗名字来自中国分行日历。 第一个天干地支名称可在1739年前后的文件中找到。 原来的分支只用来计算日子。 使用茎分支来计算月,小时和年的序列开始于公元前206年左右。 在汉代和汉朝时期。 这个想法可能来自中国阴阳五行学者。 因此,所有的星座都可以转换成五行。 例如,狗相当于阳性土。 如果我们从中国日历,五行和易经哲学中发现所有土狗的关系,那么我们可以预见棕色狗年会出现什么迹象。

2018 is Male Earth Dog. Male Earth is connected to dry soil, wall, mound or mountains. The major five elements inside Dog is Male Earth too. The sign of 2018 Earth Dog is mountains over mountains. 2018 will be a very strong Earth. That implies the events related to land, real estate, county territory, agriculture, earthquake, mineral and the Earth will be more active than before. In Chinese astrology, Earth is also connected to stability, meditation and religion. Many people will be interested in spiritual or religious study.

2018年是阳性土狗年。 阳性土与干燥的土壤,墙壁,丘陵或山脉相连。 狗内的主要五大元素也是阳性土。 2018年的土狗的标志是高山山脉。 2018年将是一个非常强大的土行。 这意味着与土地,房地产,县领土,农业,地震,矿产和地球相关的事件将比以前更加活跃。 在中国的占星术中,土也与稳定,冥想和宗教有关。 很多人会对精神或宗教学习感兴趣。

The mountain of 2018 appearing in the front of us means something is blocking our view or our path. That's a sign of obstacle. We need to climb over it to see the other world. So we need to find a flat road around the mountains to find our way. Either way, we need to take extra effort to reach our destination. Therefore, 2018 is a challenge year for many people. We need to use our wisdom to find the better way to conquer the mountains. If you can do it, then you will be ahead of many others. If you cannot, then you will behind the world.

出现在我们面前的2018年的山意味着某种东西阻碍了我们的观点或我们的道路。 这是一个障碍的迹象。 我们需要爬过去看看另一个世界。 所以我们需要找到一条平坦的山路来找到我们的路。 无论哪种方式,我们需要额外的努力,以达到我们的目的地。 因此,2018年对很多人来说是一个挑战。 我们需要用我们的智慧找到更好的征服山脉的方法。 如果你能做到的话,那么你会领先于其他许多人。 如果你不能,那么你会落后于世界。

The mountains of 2018 are related to stability, slowness, stubborn, laziness and conservativeness. If you are too lazy and lack of the diligent spirit, then you will miss career or money opportunity. The Original Chinese Horoscope 12 Branches page explains where 12-branch signs come from using the life cycle of the plant. Dog Month is October. Fruits on the tree had ripened. If we don't pick and sell them right away, then they will be rotten very soon. That implies we need to complete our unfinished project quickly. Otherwise, our income source will disappear soon.

2018年的山脉与稳定,缓慢,固执,懒惰和保守性有关。 如果你太懒惰,缺乏勤奋的精神,那么你将错失职业或金钱的机会。 原始中国星座12分支页面解释了12分支符号来自植物的生命周期。 狗月是十月。 树上的果实已经成熟了。 如果我们不马上买卖,那么他们很快就会烂掉。 这意味着我们需要尽快完成未完成的项目。 否则,我们的收入来源很快就会消失。

Dog Hour is between 19:00 to 21:00 p.m. The sun completely disappears in the sky. That sounds the sun goes down inside the mountains. The sun is connected to the Yang Fire. Therefore, Dog has a nickname of the Storeroom of the Fire in the Chinese astrology. Mountains also can absorb rainwater very quickly. Rainwater can be collected into the dam inside the mountains. The mountains become the warehouse of the Water. Fire and Water represents money to many people. Dog of 2018 brings people the concept of savings. Many people will consider the necessity before spending money. 2018 will be a good year to increase your wealth.

狗时间为19:00至21:00 太阳完全消失在天空中。 这听起来太阳在山内下山了。 太阳连接到阳火。 因此,狗在中国占星术中有一个火的储藏室的绰号。 山还能很快吸收雨水。 雨水可以被收集到山中的大坝中。 山成为水的仓库。 火和水代表许多人的钱。 2018年的狗带给人们储蓄的概念。 很多人在花钱之前会考虑必要性。 2018年将是增加你财富的好年份。

2018 of Dog is a very strong Earth year. If your Lucky Element is Earth, then 2018 will be one of your great years. If Earth is your lucky year, then you need to think twice before taking risky action. 

狗年2018年是一个非常强大的土年。 如果你的幸运元素是土,那么2018年将是你伟大的一年。 如果土是你的幸运年,那么在冒险行动之前,你需要三思而行。
