Dog Love Compatibility

Inarticulate in expressing their feelings, Dog people prefer the long and lasting love. They are kind-hearted, traditional and conservative, and would not fall in love readily. But once they do, they will treat their loved ones wholeheartedly. They are too stubborn to consider from many aspects or think about the feelings of others, which can affect the relationship to some extent and even cause a failed marriage.

Dog in 2021 - Torture Tai Sui

Dog will torture Tai Sui (causing hurt) in 2021, a year of metal Ox, during which people with a Dog sign will feel quite depressed. What's more, the inauspicious stars can further worsen the situation and impose negative energy to their health, interpersonal relationship, career and love. Fortunately, with the blessing of lucky stars, some of them can take advantage of it with their wisdom and responsibility!


During the year of punishment of Tai Sui, the career of Dog people can be more or less challenged. The more frustrated, the stronger they get, as they are ambitious and always have clear goals in mind. In study, those under the Dog sign may move boldly forward! This year, they are more likely to have quarrels, disputes and conflicts with other people, and do a hard but thankless job.


This year is not the right time to make a fortune. Instead, Dogs will be bogged down in money or interest disputes, and their money can be used or shared by someone else.


Those under the Dog sign will have a very average love horoscope. Married Dogs need to beware of a mistress, as well as dispute, misunderstanding and argument. As the saying goes, out of the mouth comes evil, they should guard against a crisis caused by it.


Spleen, stomach, heart, eye and eyesight problems will require their special attention. At the same time, Dogs should care more about the health of elders in the family. Whether they are at home or out, they should remain conscious enough for security.

Health: Difficult to Prevent Illness

With poor luck in health, Dog people may often encounter something unexpected and suffer from some illnesses that are difficult to prevent. Some diseases will be communicated from others and beyond resistance, so they can do nothing but stay away from those pathogens.
