Earth Dog's Chinese calendar (1958, 2018)
If you were born in 1958 or 2018, the annual pillar of the Earth Dog corresponds to your main Chinese zodiac sign.
Let us remember in preamble that the Chinese lunisolar calendar being based on the lunar cycles, the dates of the Year of the Earth Dog are different from a year of the Gregorian calendar (see below the exact dates of the Earth Dog Years).
In Chinese astrology, your date of birth can be broken down into four pillars of destiny (四柱 命理 学) or Ba-Zi (八字). Each pillar of destiny is associated with an animal and a Chinese element and corresponds to one of the periods of your birth (year, month, day and hour). If you were born at a Dog Hour, a Earth Dog Day or during a Earth Dog Month, each of these periods also corresponds to a pillar of destiny. The four pillars of the Earth Dog share the same imaged destiny, which you can discover further down the page.
Furthermore, if your year of birth is 1958 or 2018 and the Earth Dog is therefore your 1st pillar of destiny (your main Chinese zodiac sign, which is the one corresponding to your personality and your relationship to the world and with others), then all Earth Dog Days and Months, as well as the Chinese Hour of the Dog, are lucky times for you.
Find below the list of the annual and monthly dates of the Earth Dog's Chinese calendar, as well as the hours ruled by the Dog.
