The Flamboyant New Chinese Year of the Rooster - What It Brings For You!
2017 Will Be a Powerful Year!
The flamboyant Year of the Rooster begins on 28th January 2017. Each animal in the Chinese zodiac is divided into elements with slightly different characteristics - this new year is Yin Fire Rooster. Fire brings more energy, so magnifying the animal's behavior. While a yin years are best spent in harmony with close ones. Progress, honour and integrity will be the aim.
Roosters are hardworking, confident, talented, honest, healthy, outspoken and fast thinking, making them impatient. They are popular and like to be the centre of attraction, expecting others to listen to them, but can be arrogant. Although a rooster is guided by instinct, he is well organised, a big thinker, a doer, and very active.
If you are a Rooster you will rise in glory and benefit from the energy of your year. Pursue new opportunity, as 2017 is a time for rebirth. You still need to work but will be rewarded. Financially, it will be an average year, but curb spending and only listen to those more successful than you. As it's the start of a new 12-year cycle, don't dwell on the past, but plan big for the future.
There may be drama in your relationships, but if you're reasonable to your partner's wishes, all will be well. Your perfect partner is an ox or snake - the worst a rat, rabbit, horse of pig. Good careers are in sales, journalism, PR, hairdressing, teaching, or a policeman.
Predictions for this Year of the Rooster
A powerful year moving forward. Impressions count, but stick to proven paths for success. Copy the Rooster's traits, such as loyalty, hard work, and family values. It's a good year to marry, or start relations if single.
Those who take action, like businessmen or athletes will succeed, and people will be less stubborn, more polite. However, astrological tension will create demonstrations from leaders or large corporations, and further migration will cause political instability. New celebrities will emerge, but quickly lose their fame.
