As we say goodbye to the unpredictable chaos of the 2016 Yang Fire Monkey, we move into the somewhat calmer, more steadfast year of the Yin Fire Rooster. Yin fire energy encourages us to cultivate warmth and insight. It is time to nourish the relationships and inter-personal bonds of those closest to us, our family and loved ones. But beware on a larger scale, in five-element relationships fire melts and reshapes metal so this year could see the structures of long-standing institutions and governments come under fire, becoming vulnerable to destabilization.
People born in rooster years are known for being trustworthy and loyal, responsible and disciplined workers, brave and committed individuals who value order and planning. To harness the energy of the rooster year, it is best to set clear intentions for the year ahead, to cultivate patience, and focus on practical, pragmatic solutions to problems encountered. The 2017 rooster year is not the time for spontaneous decisions and throwing caution to the wind – continue to work hard and stay the course. Focus on doing less but doing it well, paying attention to detail, and creating a positive, lasting impression.
Wishing you, your family and friends happiness, abundance and health in 2017!
