Cock-a-doodle-doo, ya'll... According to the Chinese horoscope, it's the Year of the Fire Rooster!
I think we can all agree that 2016 was not our best, but if we had listened to the Chinese, we may have seen it coming. The last year was the Year of the Monkey, full of lots of shenanigans.
The monkey swung from month to month bringing with it lots of surprises and hyperactivity. But starting on Jan 28, the beginning of Chinese New Year, it's time for the Rooster to step in.
The Year of the Rooster is powerful, meant to propel us forward and move on with our lives. It's best to stick to practical and proven paths, rather than taking risks like you may have in 2016.
Impressions will surely count so you'll want to be clear of any intentions involving love, money, and business. Since 2017 is specifically under the fire element, it will bring lots of energy and enthusiasm.
If you were born during the rooster (any 1993 babies out there), then this year could do more for you than it does for others. If you're in a relationship, it's either time to jump the gun and get married or break up.
Apparently, any 24-year-old roosters need to call it quits if there is no progress in their relationships. As far as any single roosters out there, you may meet someone this year, but you will have to be patient as it progresses.
This year, it is recommended for roosters to "do more, and speak less".
If you are working towards a career in business or leadership, you will have luck! If you are a creative rooster, your superiors will finally give you some recognition. Use this to motivate you, because recognition will not always match their actions.
Specifically, some of the best career options for roosters are journalist, public relations officer, travel writer, restaurant owner, surgeon, dentist, athlete, teacher, or soldier.
Even if you aren't a rooster, you can channel rooster traits in order to get the most out of 2017. Roosters are typically observant, confident, resourceful, courageous, and talented.
The traits you should tap into this year to reap the rewards are loyalty, commitment, hard work, family values, and great appearances. If you're friends with any roosters, then try to hang around them more. They make devoted friends and always stay true to their word.
Rise and shine, it's rooster time!
