🐔 Chinese horoscope 2017 of the Year of the Fire Rooster for the 12 animal-signs of the Chinese zodiac

When is Chinese New Year 2017? After the New Year of the Monkey comes the Lunar New Year 2017 of the Rooster, which begins January 28, 2017. The Rooster (or Chicken) being the sign of dawn and awakening, triumph and success can only be achieved at the price of hard work and patience in 2017.

📅 What's my Chinese zodiac sign?

Chinese Zodiac 2017 energies are subject to the Fire element in its Yin form. Yin Fire expresses inner warmth and insight, as well as the quietness of privacy and family ties. Forgotten thoughts arise out of nowhere, amid a disconcerting atmosphere, both stiff and motley.

Chinese New Years of the Rooster - Digest

Rooster Years are a blend of righteousness and justice, bombast and logistical efficiency. Public and private administration jobs, military careers or police jobs are highly favored.

The Rat, the Rabbit and the Rooster are only represented by a single element, while all the other signs of the Chinese zodiac contain several hidden elements in them. Therefore, years governed by these three signs strongly depend on the core strength of the element to which they are initially attached.

Even though the rotation cycles of months, seasons and days continuously bring diversity to the energy flow of the 5 elements of Chinese cosmology, the presence of a predominant element governing the annual cycle is never seen as the best of omens in Chinese tradition.

Just like Feng Shui teachings, the balance of power between the five elements generates happiness and fulfillment. The lack of energetic diversity induced by a dominating Element during a New Year of the Rooster, a New Year of the Rabbit and a New Year of the Rat, intensify the disturbance of the cyclical forces of time with those inherent to each sign of Chinese astrology.

It is therefore advisable to stay on guard before considering the possibility of a quick and easy investment return on a new business venture during Rooster Years.

Karma Agenda 2017

Given the energy distribution of the 5 elements all along the year, it is best to start your projects in the fall or during the last two weeks of each season. Indeed, late seasons periods are represented by the Earth element, critical and useful for its stabilizing virtues, particularly during Years of the Fire Rooster.

The combination of this year’s element Fire with the element Metal highlights tensions with other energetic deficiencies, creating periods unfit to change.

Love, Births and Weddings

If you’re single, this is a very good year to start a new relationship. However, romances that could have grown into solid marriages over time could well be cut short for reasons beyond the control of the new lovebirds; for instance, a professional or family move to another state or country.

If you’re expecting a birth taking place during the year of the Fire Rooster, remember that a birth in the spring harbinger of a less irritable temperament for your future little Rooster. You can also read the complete KarmaWeather horoscope for the sign of the Rooster by clicking here.

If the prospect of giving birth to a child with a proud and demonstrative character doesn’t delight you, one can always wait until New Year 2018, Year of the Earth Dog, and expect the birth of a smart and skilled baby Dog, who shall always (and rightly so) have the last word with her/his parents.

Despite the tension and imbalance that dominate in 2017, this year is paradoxically auspicious for weddings. One shouldn’t forget that red (color of the element Fire) is the traditional color of the wedding dress in China and other Asian countries, while the color white (color of the Element Metal) symbolizes mourning (rather than Black in Western countries).

Fashion, Decoration and Lifestyle

In order to balance the energy flow of time that can provide benefits for one’s personal karma, it is best to wear jewelry and clothes respecting the composition and color of the Element they are supposed to represent (to discover the KarmaWeather infographics and predictions associated with each of the elements; Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wood, click here).

These balancing principles concerning your wardrobe and accessories, which are connected to Feng Shui, also apply to the interior design of your house and business alike. In 2017, it is highly recommended to favor terracotta objects or jewelry whose colors are related to the Earth element, such as yellow or brown sphalerite, or even bracelets in sienna color. These are the 2017 Lucky colors of the year for all 12 signs of the Chinese zodiac, and especially for the Rooster. Furthermore, one should remember along the course of 2017 to avoid using red as a garment or precious stone (cherry and pink topaz, red ruby and red diamond, garnet, rhodochrosite ...), so as not to fan the Fire already there in quantity and in direct conflict with Metal (main element of the sign of the Rooster). For more information about the Feng Shui colors of the year 2017 for each Chinese zodiac sign, click here.

Apart from the conflicting nature of the year made possible by the dominant and conflicting nature of Metal and Fire, positive currents do exist all along 2017, even if they don’t apply to all 12 signs of the Chinese zodiac.

Politics, Entertainment and Technology

Fire melting Metal, the resulting electric and hot atmosphere will be a source of tension to account for. We should therefore expect an intensification of virile (and sterile) demonstrations on the part of leaders of countries or big corporations. Migration caused by wars and climate changeshall contribute to degrade an already heavy if not unstable political climate.

New celebrities in the entertainment and music industry will emerge in greater numbers, thanx to the ever growing expansion of the Internet. Capable of lighting up nightclubs all over the world, from Ibiza to Goa, these "handkerchief" pop stars should unfortunately loose their sudden fame less than a year later.

The first A.I. youtube pop star could very like emerge from Japan in 2017, live streaming 24/24 3D crazy fan database generated K. pop videos.

Jobs, Business and Investment

A Year of the Rooster is often marked by brilliant success for those who have endured with patience the draining and often solitary build-up of a business project.

Many people wish during this particular year to change their professional environment. But these desires of mobility shall not materialize for everyone, as not all 12 Chinese zodiac signs are able to handle all at one the stress, and be sufficiently creative and organized to overcome the failures they will have to face along their way up to success.

2017 Karma Weather tip

The year 2017 is placed under the protection of the fabulous and flamboyant sign of the Fire Rooster, whose virtues of righteousness, perseverance and transparency generously reward those who understand them well enough.

1972, 1984,

For people born under the sign of the Rat in the Chinese calendar, the year of Rooster is beneficial and fertile. It is actually a good period for Rats, who are invited more often than usual to birthday and wedding celebrations, if not to their own wedding…

Luck is also on the Rat’s side concerning business. The Water element of Rats not only allows them to reduce the violence of Metal facing Fire in 2017, but one should also remember that Water fertilizes Metal, signaling a suitable period for the realization of their projects.

Good news may tip the scales on the right side for Rats. Beware though the risks of exhaustion (or even burn-out) for those who don’t manage to switch off their office laptop or smartphone at least a few hours everyday. Rest periods should first be devoted to family time, hobbies, napping or reading, never as time gained for ongoing business developments.

Only Rats who can equitably combine work and idleness during 2017 shall see their goals successful.
