This year is offering itself as a stage to you, so get on it and perform. Career opportunities are on the horizon, but they won’t come knocking on your door if you don’t work for them. However, y there will be some tough competition standing with you up on that stage, so do everything you can’t to stand out.
As the Dog and the Horse represent different elements, this year isn’t necessarily all about working for your career. Don’t switch jobs with the expectation to get promoted – the stars won’t be aligned. But that doesn't mean you won’t have a chance to move up the ladder: If you work hard, there might be some good fortune coming your way at the end of the year.
The Sheep and the Horse are sharing a similar fate this year. Career opportunities will be very rare, but that doesn’t mean you can’t focus on making the best of it.

Take a step back and start defining your career goals since opportunities will present themselves eventually.
2018 is all about learning new skills for your future career development. Don’t worry about the status of your current job; instead start looking ahead. When the time is right, the opportunity will show itself. But you won’t be able to take on the challenge in front of you if you have neglected to develop the right skills.
The Year of the Dog comes in hot for the Rooster. This can be your year to pursue your goals, as all the career signs are on fire. But don’t take anything for granted, as the career opportunities need to first be unlocked. Once the gates are opened, nothing will stand in your way.
Although it’s YOUR year, your career luck is only mediocre. But that doesn't mean it’s all bad in 2018, as your heavy workload will become lighter this year. The biggest lesson for you during the next twelve months should be to learn how to ask for help – no matter if you’re a hardworking employee or run your own business.
This year’s fortune is a double-edged sword for you, as the unlocking of this year’s potential all depends on you. 2018 has all the signs to be a great year, but will have to put in some work and plan for the future. If you accept the challenge, you’ll be able to make big waves for years to come.
