Kung Hei Fat Choy to all. Here’s hoping the year of the Dog brings you health, wealth and happiness.
The Lunar New Year dates from 2600 BC, when the Emperor Huang Ti introduced the first cycle of the zodiac.
Because of cyclical lunar dating, the first day of the year can fall anywhere between late January and the middle of February. On the Chinese calendar, 2006 is Lunar Year 4703-4704. On the Western calendar, the start of the New Year falls on January 29, 2006 — The Year of the Dog.
If you were born in 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, or 2006 – you were born under the sign of the dog. Like the dog, you are honest and faithful to those you love, although you also can be somewhat eccentric and very stubborn at times! For dogs in 2006, any recent setbacks or obstacles can be overcome so look forward to a year in which to really shine, either personally or professionally.
