Year of the Dog
The Dog is eleventh of the 12 year cycle of animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac. Individuals who are born in 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018 or will be born in 2030 according to the Chinese zodiac fall under the symbol of Dog. People born in the year of the Dog possess the best traits of human nature.
They tend to be honest, friendly, loyal, smart, straightforward, and venerable with a strong sense of responsibility. There are always two sides or a Yin and Yang to all things. The negative sides of a Dog personality are likely to be cold, self-righteous, stubborn and critical of others.
At the Ki Energy Center we often use an individual’s blood type as the foundation for wellness strategies in areas of diet, and life style. The Chinese also make use of an individual’s blood type to suggest personality traits. Individuals born under the Dog symbol who are blood type O tend to be brave, clever, honest and optimistic. Blood type A individuals who fall under the Dog symbol tend to be good at helping others which is considered to be one of their greatest virtues.
Blood type B Dog people are usually honesty and very optimistic, and those who are blood type AB tend to have a great deal of self-control and can be prudent in their nature. This ancient Chinese method of using DNA to identify personality traits are not unlike wellness strategies used by Dr. Peter J. D’Adamo in his book “Live Right 4 Your Type”.
If you were born under the Dog symbol you should be very proactive with your health and wellness strategies. If you have an unhealthy diet, something that can also be determined by your DNA (see D’Adamo’s Eat Right 4 Your Type), age will begin to create problems with your digestive system. Activity in the workforce can create high levels of stress in a greater degree for individuals under the Dog symbol. Yoga, meditation, and Ki Treatments can be a proactive way of addressing that issue.
