    ILLUSTRATION Natz Bade
  • Let's take a look at your Chinese Zodiac to see what's in store for your financial life. It may be a dog's world this 2018, but are those born under that sign lucky enough to bring home the bacon?

    Dog

    Years 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, and 2018

    Your sign is ready to take on the oozing energy of your year. In terms of money, opportunities to make some will be abundant. And because your finances get easier this 2018, you'll tend to spend more and save less. Watching your money work for you is so prideful for a dog, that you may get a little addicted to it, Horoscope.com says. Now that you know this, don't forget to save up for your future by controlling your spending!

    Pig

    Years 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2000, and 2019

    Bitcoins, mutual funds, stocks? It's a good time to learn something new this 2018. Your sign is determined to master everything about money and investing—take advantage of it. By the last quarter of 2018, get ready to reap the rewards of these financial risks. Balato!

    Rat

    Years 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, and 2008

    Rats are also financially lucky this year. Hard work will pay off around July. That month is also the best time to ask for a raise, promotion, or both. Put your endless drive to use, and achieve some of your larger goals (a new car? House and lot, maybe?) this year.

    Ox

    Years 1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, and 2009

    Just like the Pig, 2018 is also a great time for the Ox to start investing their hard-earned dough. Take risks, but keep your wealth liquid. A word of caution: lending money to friends is a bad idea. Just keep the funds to yourself.

    Tiger

    Years 1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, and 2010

    When it comes to cash, the Tiger tends to get lost. This year is different, though, because since the year of the Dog is slower than usual, you'll finally have enough time to fix your financial life: taxes, bills, etc. 2018 is also the best year for you to plan for your financial future. For one, if you're an aspiring businessman, it's a great time to launch a new endeavor!

    Rabbit

    Years 1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, and 2011

    Your financial situation will get a boost from the Dog, and you will see your funds grow. You'll be invited to invest in something big—go all in and watch your money work for you. Those already employed will find that 2018 will be slow for their career. Don't fret, because others will see how hard you work.

    Dragon

    Years 1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, and 2012

    Since the Dragon and the Dog don't normally get along, this may be a taxing year for you. Speaking of difficulty, you might face a financial crisis in the future, so it's best to start saving for it ASAP. Though financial literacy bores the hell out of you, planning (and again, saving) for your future is a necessity. Start now.

    Snake

    Years 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, and 2013

    Hopefully, you can muster up the integrity needed for paying all your utang. If you do, congratulations! Now that you don't owe anyone money, it's time to start saving up. Once you've saved enough, the next step is to make that money grow. And just like the other signs, 2018 is a good year for the Snake to make your money move.

    Horse

    Years 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, and 2014

    The expression workhorse was coined with the sign of the Horse in mind because of your commendable work ethic. If you feel like you're not getting paid enough, don't be afraid to ask for more. 2018 is also the best time to put up a business. Make sure to consult a financial advisor first.

    Sheep

    Years 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, and 2015

    If you've been spending your time online, 2018 is the year to sign up for a part-time job using that laptop. That online job opportunity will give you extra cash!

    Monkey

    Years 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, and 2016

    Monkeys and finances don't always mix well, so it's best to find a trustworthy financial adviser (or even a friend) to help you out. Better yet, do it on your own. Start by making a financial planner: list your daily expenses, your monthly budget, and more. You can also start reading articles and books about money and business, too.

    Rooster

    Years 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 969, 1981, 1993, 2005, and 2017

    If you're planning to open a savings accounts or a stock portfolio, do it. 2018 is a good year for the Rooster when it comes to saving and growing cash. You're on your way to financial stability!
