Due to the fact that Venus will be one of our primary patrons now, whereas Mars will become one of our primary antagonists, health problems are really likely, but only under certain circumstances. Elementary attentiveness and the desire to stay on top of things the whole year should prove to be enough to ensure that you don't get sick the whole year. However, this is the best case scenario.
People who do sport or have an active lifestyle need to be especially careful now. This is an area where it's easier to prevent a problem than to solve it. Athletes can't afford to take risks, not under any circumstances. Abide by the safety rules completely, otherwise you could get an injury, which will take far longer to recover from than you could expect. As a result, you will lose a lot of opportunities, and there will be nobody to blame but yourself. The same applies to rescue workers, people in the military and similar professions.
2018 will prove to be exceptionally productive for people who suddenly decide that they have to do something about their figure, and their physical condition in general. Just don't body build in any old way. If you decide - act, let yourself get caught up in it, find something to do which you really like. It will be much easier to lose excess pounds now than at any other time. The same applies to weight-related and strength-building processes, but it would be preferable to put as little emphasis as possible on medical and pharmacological methods.
In other words, the year of the Dog will prove to be quite ambiguous and contrasting in this regard. If, however, you have the desire and an understanding of what you need, then every goal will prove to be more easily and quickly attainable than expected. You definitely mustn't allow yourself to indulge now, in any area - whether alcohol or excessive physical loads. The important thing is to keep a positive attitude.
