While the dog is in charge of the world, many new paths will appear before you, but you won't take the risk of following them. The ruler of this year will really like the fact that you refuse to gamble, because the Dog itself enjoys the utmost simplicity, and counsels others to take only the straight, level path. And this is exactly what the course of your life is going to look like, a level track, from which you do not intend to turn to the right or left.
Straight doesn't mean easy, and Tigers will sense quite strongly that it is not so easy to move forward along the reliable route which has already been chosen. Along with your path in 2018, many obstacles will arise, as well as situations which will threaten your plans. Fortunately, it is not in Tigers' nature to capitulate in the face of failure. Having just encountered the next setback in the path, you will demonstrate all the agility of your predatory nature, and then, after eliminating this obstacle, you will continue to move forward. Of course, it may tire you to have to growl menacingly from time to time, but what can be done about that? Fate is not yet preparing generous gifts for you, which means you will have to growl fiercely and also get your tiger claws involved in the matter.
On the other hand, once you have won over from fate everything you truly deserved, you will be able to celebrate your triumph loudly. The time of your triumphs will start already in the second half of the year of the Dog, when you achieve your lofty goal and start thinking about where to go next. Many fresh ideas will come to you, both innovative and creative. It's another matter, however, whether you have enough energy to bring this creativity and innovation to life. So be it. You can save all your new plans for later, once you have strengthened all the positions you have already acquired.
While following their straight, but the not easy path, and then enjoying the long-awaited triumph, Tigers should not forget to control their impulsive nature. At a certain moment you will risk forgetting about family, friends, and people you care about. You can't allow yourself to become completely estranged from them. Yes, you are good at playing solo, but in relationships with loved ones you don't need to play at all, you need to sense that you are loved and appreciated. The best thing you can do during the first half of 2018 is to coach yourself to divide your attention evenly between your personal life and your career. You must forget your business and unresolved problems the moment you leave your workplace and find yourself with the people you share a home with. At the end of the day, you have a lot in common with these people. We're talking about making plans for the future, enjoying things together, and unforgettable family trips.
On the whole, during the period of the Yellow Dog's reign, Tigers' personal lives will be reliably protected from any unpredictable factors. You shouldn't start to panic, even if you notice that some third party is showing too much interest in your significant other. A 'third party' will not be able to ruin your marriage, but you should still give more attention to your beloved. Remember everything you know about romance, and be sure to introduce them into your everyday life. Single Tigers should take this advice twice as carefully. You have grown accustomed to treating love as a peculiar hunt (it's not without reason that you belong to this predatory sign). However, in 2018, you should slightly reassess your role when interacting with members of the opposite sex. Don't don't be afraid that by becoming romantic, you will go from being the predator to being the prey. This won't happen, especially since your more acute sense of romance will attract the most decent types of people.
Tigers shouldn't step out of their predatory role in one thing, namely their relations with business partners and colleagues at work. There is a risk that on the path to the goals you have set, obstacles will arise on account of these people. Learn to skillfully figure out the ferocious wolf in sheep's clothing. This will save you from many problems and will make the path to your lofty triumphs easier.
Let's return to the discussion about the triumph which you will achieve in the second half of 2018. With this triumph, the horoscope means the massive success which you will achieve at the workplace (in business, if you are an entrepreneur). This will not be a sudden gift of fate, but rather the logical result of everything you have invested a lot of effort into. As such, for you this triumphal success will be completed expected. The only thing you will not be able to control is when you achieve it. Only the second half of the year of the Dog will be triumphal for you, and all the prior months you will have to work diligently, forgetting about rest and sleep, and also renouncing your natural inclination towards being lazy. You are advised to devote the second half of the year not too active matters, but rather to repairing your well-being. Of course, it will be quite a lot of effort for you to combine this important matter with other obligations. As soon as you achieve your primary goal (you will finally get the coveted job, successfully change the workplace, or open a branch of your own business), a number of new concerns will appear. It will remain up to you to determine how to go about dealing with them, without bringing yourself to the point of physical and emotional exhaustion. Yes, this is a difficult matter, but that's why you are a wise Tiger, in order to successfully solve this kind of puzzle.
For Tigers, a suitable reward for the effort exerted in 2018 will be tangible financial growth. This growth will begin the moment you achieve your lofty goal (you get an increase or expand your business's sphere of influence). At this moment you will have a compulsive desire to spoil yourself, rewarding yourself for diligence and a good work ethic. Of course, this kind of reward implies a significant expense (most likely it will involve an expensive purchase which you will intend to present yourself with). You may be able to afford such a large expense, but immediately afterward you will have to go into economy mode. For your finances to continue to grow into the future, you should work on creating so-called 'initial capital'. Once you have put a certain amount into your bank account, you will stop worrying that you do not have cash on hand to develop your own new idea.
