Chinese New Year 2017, the Year of the Fire Rooster, starts on January 28, 2017 and ends on February 15, 2018.

📅 What's the Chinese sign of my child?

🐣 How to choose the name of my Baby Rooster child in 2017 according to the precepts of Chinese astrology?

Chinese astrology can help you to choose the name of your future child by balancing the specific energetic flows of his/her date of birth.

The Chinese sign of the Rooster, unlike most signs of the Chinese zodiac, has only one intrinsic element, the Metal element.

In 2017, the Fire element is the element associated with the Rooster for this year. That's why your child will be a Fire Rooster baby.

Whereas the Metal is both the symbol of the protective shield and the sharp sword, which can already give a foretaste of the character of the little fellow, it must also be remembered that Fire, exuberant and generous, also has the unfortunate tendency to melt Metal (destructive cycle of Metal against Fire in the Wu Xing).

In order to avoid the loss of energy of his/her Metal, due to the harmful influence that Fire can have on the intrinsic element of his / her main sign, the Rooster child needs the element Earth to rebalance his / her personal energetic cycle and reinforce his Metal element, because the Earth begets the Metal (cycle of construction of the Earth towards the Metal in the Wu Xing).

If the Metal (the intrinsic element of the Rooster) and the Fire are the main markers of your child's birth year, his birthday and month of birth also have their specific energies, each with a Chinese sign and Element.

As a general rule, when you observe an excess of an element, for example Wood, you must try to wear it out. As Metal cuts Wood, the choice of a first name whose etymology has a direct or indirect link with Metal may be appropriate.

If, on the contrary, you notice that the animal-signs of the year, month and day of birth of your toddler don't show any Water, and that the elements associated with the year, month and day of birth of your child are anything but Water either, you have to fill this gap. The choice of a first name directly or indirectly related to the Water element is welcome.

Therefore, if you can consider the Earth element as one of the main energy flows to consider when choosing the first name of your boy or girl, the Earth actually only compensates and neutralizes the negative effects of the confrontation of Metal with Fire of his year of birth, 2017.

You must therefore also take into consideration your child's month of birth and birthday before making your choice of a first and / or middle name.

Chinese Horoscope of children born in the Year of the Rooster 2017

A boy or girl born in the year 2017, Year of the Fire Rooster is the omen of a lively and curious temperament, as well as an optimistic and valorous character. Curious and studious, the interests of the young Rooster are manifold, and his / her thirst for knowledge, insatiable.

Like the Tiger, the child born a Year of the Rooster is a natural leader and a very charismatic personality, provided he / she's not contradicted. From a very early age, the little Rooster is remarkable for his organizational talent, so that a day without action bores him deeply.

With his brothers and sisters or with his nursery mates, it's the child Rooster who decides the distribution of toys and roles, and it is also him who distributes the good and the bad points. The little Rooster is very sociable with the other children, on condition that he can fix the rules of his friendly relations himself.

Very disciplined at school, he has no difficulty learning new knowledge, and his concentration is exemplary. It's wise to buy your little Rooster many books, encyclopedias and atlases in order to nourish his boundless intellectual curiosity. During classes at school, the young Rooster can sometimes get into trouble by making the clown to make his comrades laugh.

The Child Rooster respects the schedules, understands what "no" means, does his homework without the need to remind him, and always takes care of his things, whether his schoolbag or his bedroom.

When playing alone at home, the Rooster child is particularly attracted by the instructions for use for the construction of his toy and its exact application rather than by the purpose of the toy itself.

As he grows up, the Child Rooster is interested in social issues and humanitarian causes. Poverty and war revolt him more than anything else in the world, and all his life he'll do his best to help the weaker ones even when they're on the other side of the planet.

A bit of a fashion victim, very conscious of his dress code, the little Rooster also takes care of his silhouette and hairstyle, in order to always remain the most handsome / beautiful personality of the playground.

Concise and ordered with himself, the child Rooster expects no less from the others. Indeed, this little man is a maniac of detail who doesn't hesitate to criticize others, which can make him irritating for his friends and parents. Not doing in the half measure, the little Rooster always wants to be right. He considers that he can't be mistaken, and he never succeeds in understanding that one can mistake his advice and take it badly, however wise and valuable it seemed to him.

As for finances, since the child Rooster doesn't like to waste, he keeps a considerable portion of his pocket money in his piggy bank.

In the case of a child Rooster, whose Metal element is intrinsic, parents whose Wood element is dominant in their Chinese astral chart are advised to ensure that they don't become exhausted by seeking to answer their innumerable questions about the universe. They should rather guide him towards books and educational games that could satisfy his curiosity and thirst for knowledge. In general, the parents of a Rooster child must always remain vigilant not to be led to the wand by their child, because a small Rooster can be obstinate and occasionally authoritarian.

Allergic to hypocrisy, the flamboyant Child Rooster is lucid and clairvoyant on the others and on his environment, without however bringing him the subtlety and the tact which he cruelly lack, because stubborn like a goose, he's incapable to confront his mistakes and understand the possible reproaches that could be made to him.

Parent child horoscope compatibility

Although there is no particular compatibility issue to notice between the child Rooster and his parents, the small Rooster however needs a lot of affection and attention from them. Intelligent, insightful and independent, his education is simple and rewarding, as long as they can accept his somewhat eccentric side, which actually makes all his charm in reality.

Happy Chinese New Year 2017 to the future mothers of a magnificent and flamboyant little Fire Rooster!
