For your sign the upcoming period will be quite favorable with respect to the area of finances. At the very least, you will be able to finish the things which you did not manage to complete last year. Moreover, practically none of the trends of that stage will have an influence on you: whatever you did (or didn't do) during the last cycle, will have virtually no influence on your coming successes. On the other hand, during the first half of the year of the Dog, you can expect significant expenses. You will, of course, try to do something about this, but you will understand very quickly that all of this is really necessary, and you can't get by without making significant investments. This is, however, a positive aspect, because already by the middle of the year your 'crops' will start to bear their first 'fruit'. And if you have been attentive and composed, the results will really be to your liking.
In 2018 Mercury advises Arians to work things out as quickly as possible with their debtors. Many of them will start to evade their obligations and with such people you need to be as implacable as possible, even cruel if necessary. Failing this, not only will you wait for the debt to be repaid, you will also make serious problems for yourself. As far as loans are concerned, they will be a permissible option this year. This will be a favorable time for investing in funds and managing your finances actively with various banking instruments. Of course, for many Arians 2018 could prove to be quite enlightening, in the sense that you really could learn a new specialization. If you feel that you have the time and energy to do a second job in parallel to the first, you must take care of these matters. If you miss the chance, you could end up depriving yourself of some very interesting opportunities. Towards the end of the year you already need to be standing firmly on your own feet, in all respects. Towards the Autumn season, make an effort to relax, don't rush, act thoughtfully and remember that there is no such thing as a good lie. Honest actions, even if you are the only one who knows about them, will always result in unexpectedly positive consequences at the end of the day, although they will be in the future.
