2017 Year of the Rooster (Chinese New Year)
The Chinese New Year 2017 of the Fire Rooster will start on January
28, 2017 Ė the second New Moon after the Solstice.
The Year of the Rooster will be a powerful one, with no middle of
the road when it comes to moving forward. This year, impressions
count. Youíll want to look your best and be clear on your intentions
concerning love, money, and business. Stick to practical and
well-proven paths to ensure success, rather than risky ventures.
In a Rooster Year, all of the Chinese animals can reap great rewards
by tapping into Rooster traits. Loyalty, commitment, hard work,
family values, and top-notch appearances are just some of the
characteristics that will be rewarded this year.
General Predictions For
The Year Of The Rooster 2017
Consider a Rooster in a barnyard, protecting his hens and strutting
his stuff- feathers puffed up, head high and extremely proud of his
flock. Well, thatís about it. The Year of the Rooster will be a year
that the most vital promise made will result in a flawless job no
matter what it takes to achieve it. It will be a year when it is
truly better to do less, but do it perfectly.
Perched precariously out on a limb, the Rooster is a cheerful and
buoyant early bird. A Don Quixote who is tempted by the spirit of
adventure, he can bring a few wild goose chases that donít quite
work out. Independence and equality will characterize relationships.
Very dramatic theatrical presentations, books and movies will honor
the classics. Old stories are retold and appreciated. Too much
eccentricity and originality is met with suspect.
Roosters are brave and chivalrous and, when faced with stress,
opposition and adversity, will go far beyond what is required to win
the battle. The stubborn Rooster will be a dauntless hero who will
not back down and who will certainly be unreasonable if he doesnít
get his way.
