Lucky colors in 2018
In order to balance the surplus of the Earth element, which is the main Chinese element of the Year of the Dog 2018, and whose energy is reinforced by the presence of the intrinsic element of the Dog, which is also Earth, lucky colors to wear for 2018 are colors that symbolize the element Wood (green) and the element Water (blue and black).
Year of the Dog 2018: Yang Earth is the Chinese element of the year 2018
The Dog, the eleventh sign of the zodiac of the Chinese calendar, has as main agent the Earth element in its Yang form. In a secondary energy form, the Dog also carries in him the Fire and Metal elements, also in their Yang polarity. The duodecimal cycle of the calendar of elements also foresees that Earth is the element of the year 2018.
The Earth element is thus doubled in strength, which is generally manifested by an infatuation and a reinforced efficiency in accomplishing administrative business tasks that require a solid know-how in organization. The Earth element also represents the center, the start, and the finality of each cycle.
Earth, a symbol of the depths and abyssal universes, brings together and merges the 4 other elements of Chinese cosmology (Wood, Fire, Metal and Water). The influence of the Earth element is expressed both by an enhanced power of analytical introspection of the universe, and by the curiosity and exploration of our human condition through the calm confrontation of our own fears and anxieties.

Lucky colors to wear in 2018: Blue, black, green
The lucky colors that can positively influence your destiny in 2018 are those related to the beneficial energies of the Wood element, represented by the green color green (let's remember that Wood dominates Earth) and the Water element, represented by blue and black. Indeed, Water being globally in deficiency during the Year of the Dog 2018, it's important to be able to fill this shortage with the colors of your clothes and of your interior decoration, not to mention the importance of regularly drinking water.
In the same way, knowing that the element Water is necessary for the creation of the element Wood, in the absence of the green color representing the energy of the element Wood, or simply if you don't like wear green, the colors of the Water element represent a useful alternative. Finally, and to a lesser extent, the elements Fire or Metal, represented by the colors Red, White or Gold, can serve as effective energy stabilizers for certain signs of the Chinese calendar.

Feng Shui principles of harmonization and color combination
For example, when you use red (Fire) and white (Metal), always remember to add a touch of color representing Earth (yellow, ocher, brown) in order to harmonize the energy flows produced by this set-up. Also keep in mind that if one set of colors to wear in priority had to be selected as the 2018 Color of the Year, it would be Wood and Metal related colors.
Another Feng Shui lucky color technique: if you use white (Metal) with green (Wood), knowing that Metal cuts Wood, be sure to introduce Water element colors to your combination, blue or black.
