Having these qualities, they’ll work hard to make their dreams come true and expect others to be as devoted and stable as they are.

They won’t be shy when having to express their opinions, so many will know them as straightforward and extremely honest, maybe sometimes to the extreme.

However, everyone will rely on them to offer good advice and to solve any kind of problem. When compared to the rest of the Dogs in the Chinese zodiac, these ones will be smart enough to listen to other people’s opinions and to accept different views than their own.

Because the Earth element brings about steadiness, they’ll be realistic and plan silently for their life to become better, without ever making impulsive decisions.

Furthermore, they’ll be very good at handling their own emotions, so it will be very unlikely to have them dealing with extreme feelings.

Possessing great intuition and being sensitive, they’ll be very efficient when working in teams, not to mention they’ll know how to bring the best in others and how to convince people to reveal their talents.

They’ll indeed be very worried about life and have a pessimistic attitude, but at least they won’t be obsessed with finances and the materialistic side of life, even if great providers for their family.

Many will like them, not because they’ll do something special, but more for being charismatic and enjoyable, not to mention how much they’ll love carrying out all kind of conversations and offering their advice.

Some will never see these traits of their personality as positive, so it’s possible they’ll annoy many of their friends when seeming nosy and feeling superior.

However, these Earth Dogs will in fact never be patronizing, more like the opposite. They won’t mind being led to success because they won’t have leadership abilities anyway, and prefer to act as the second violin.

Others will feel empowered and motivated to achieve great things by them as they’ll be true friends and valuable advisers for many of their loved ones.

Furthermore, they’ll be appreciated for always understanding and for offering their support in times of need. It will be easy for them to bring about peace in fiery arguments and to make compromises in order for harmony to get comfortably installed.

They’ll be very radical in their thinking and the older they’ll get, the more they won’t understand others, which is very sad considering how capable they’ll be of strong friendships.

When older, they’ll be very stubborn and eager to make their opinions heard. As soon as making a compromise, many will notice how they won’t in fact mean it.

They’ll have to realize negative feelings are part of their existence as well, for only this will help them reach the harmony they’ll so much need and the ability to flawlessly develop from an emotional point of view.

These natives will have many skills and be extremely perceptive when interacting with others. Their career will be prolific because they won’t mind working hard, not to mention their efficiency will all the time be appreciated.

Love & Relationships

If two of them will get married, their union will last for a lifetime. It can’t be sure how happy they’ll be in a relationship with another sign because no matter how loving, loyal and affectionate, these qualities can’t all the time be appreciated.

For example, some people will think their friendly love is not in any way interesting. More than this, these Dogs will never be spontaneous enough for those who have a lot of energy and are always wishing for something new to happen in their life.

If associated with such a person, they’ll very much argue with him or her, even if struggling to be understanding and flexible. More adventurous personalities will probably run away from them, as much as possible.

If Earth Dogs born in 2018 will learn relationships are also based on disputes and not only on peace, they’ll be more capable to make their love life spicier and to be very interesting for a certain type of people.

Becoming more independent and assertive while also chasing harmony will help them enjoy only happy and stable relationships.
