Fire Rooster

Postby Pandora » Sun Jan 01, 2017 6:41 am

For the resident astrologers, mystics, fortune tellers, and all other heretics. The year 2017 is the year of Fire Rooster according to Chinese zodiac, and this is what the next year is predicted to be like:

Image

After the Year of the Monkey comes the Year of the Rooster, which begins January 28, 2017. The Rooster being the sign of dawn and awakening, triumph and success can only be achieved at the price of hard work and patience in 2017.

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.

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 Dog child, 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 symbolizes mourning.
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 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 home and office 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. However, 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).
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, for all the Chinese zodiac signs aren’t 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.

https://www.karmaweather.com/2017-year- ... e-rooster/

I don't know what that means, but I guess if you unlock the secret of the numbers you could have a prosperious year.
Image

By the way, 2018 is going to be the year of the Earth Dog, and Trump was born in the year of the Fire Dog, in 1946, on June 14th (which was also a day of total lunar eclipse).
2018 could be his year (if he makes it that long). This, of course, is all gibberish in my opinion, but I do not discount its effect on people's psychologies, which, historically, has been great. Many people in power have been superstitious and have based their actions on astrology or other 'signs'. Pagan Kings consulted 'seers' and Christian/Muslim also sought advice and blessing of the 'holy men' before a big undertaking. So if one has a lot of power and responsibility and just doesn't know the right action to take, (and wants to shift responsibilities a bit) he just might turn to super-natural order for advice. It's really surprising how many people still believe in it.

I think each animal is assigned a core element and each year is assigned an element, so a Rooster, whose core element is metal can have a year in which it is government by metal (its own element) earth, fire, wood, and water, in a cyclical 12-yr rotation. So guess it would be: 1921 (metal/gold) --> 1933(water) --> 1945(wood) --> 1957(fire) --> 1969(earth) --> 1981(metal/gold) --> 1993(water) --> 2005(wood) --> 2017(fire) --> 2029(earth).

Image

The forecasters say that the balancing elements for this year (fire) are metal and water. Water makes sense, but I don't see how metal balances fire (probably they were just trying to sell their jewelry charms)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdTLqWpe_30
Mags, for you, beware the ides of March! Just stay on a wooden boat somewhere, away from metal, fire and rabbits. [-o<



But seriously, how all of this gets assigned and arranged I have no clue, I think old wise and bored Chinese people come up with that over drinking tea and smoking pipe. It's entertaining, though.

Came via a few phases, ancient china, at least the Xia-Shang, were fairly well connected to the western world, they have the cosmogony built into their statecraft, who invented and did what in what office, while in the west we just assigned it to heros and gods. It's origins are in theriphorphic river gods, similar to the goddess in my "I Lost A Temple" thread.

The first major revision of the I Ching was supposedly by King Wu of the Zhou, as he was imprisoned by King Zhou of the Shang. We've found evidence aspects of I Chung predates this, and we certainly don't use his system, if he ever made a version at all, because grave texts tend to look radically different from the system employed today, and one another for that matter. We have some nice ones displayed in DC.

Proto-Daoists continued with these logical schemes,and under full blown Daoism, they started focusing heavily on alchemy, with alot of paralleled investigations of near chemistry to near psychology, with heavy doses of where the fuck did this shit come from.

Around the 9th century you start having Ying-Yang formulas, based on studies of bihemispheric brain anatomy (yes,its anatomical, was originally science oriented).

You had similar systems blundering around India and Byzantium.

I'm honestly not too into the daoist systems, I was thinking about takingba job in china a whike back to look into it first hand, but didn't, so instead I don't bother. Why focus on western systems and not chinese? I just have better access to western works. When I come across a chinese work, it is more in line to a historic figure or a philosopher, I learn bits here and there, nothing systemmatic. I will remedy this later on.

I do recommend looking into early chinese mathematics though, they often were ahead of the west, and they use a wide variety of decises,including the magic square you listed aboce in the op.

My post got lost, but what I was saying is that it seems logical as far as progression of elements is concerned, in theory, but how does it get established in the actual world, other than just being superimposed on it? So, if we have an exceptionally hot year and a water sign was originally assigned to it, does it not automatically switch to fire sign? And if, for example, the last ice age lasted 10,000 years, wouldn't that whole period be governed by a water element? Shouldn't element designation follow the event, and not the other way? When did the cycle even start, does it have to be so rigid, and does it have to obey lunar cycles? It would make more sense to assign elements to events, or after the fact, as in postdiction, rather than trying to predict them as if everything follows strict textbook order (though maybe that's how the system originally came about-through some observation). I do not deny that there is a certain sense of order based on earth's rotation (change of seasons, etc.) and some things can be forecasted ahead of time, but to superimpose an ideological order, based on principles alone upon the actual world doesn't seem like a wise undertaking, unless it is a mainly a psychological/political scheme, buffered by justifications/denials (if it doesn't work) and confirmation biases (if it does). In that way, it would simply be like any other fortune telling. I would look into political environment (power struggles) during which this system came about and how it came to be ingrained into culture. It seems that superstition is powerful psychological force, especially in Asia.

If you really want to do that, I can link you to some online translations of really Chinese works from the early Zhou that jumps back and forth from religious rituals and magic to statecraft as feasible pragmatic tactical and political awareness.

The ideological didn't start till just prior to the French revolution. It's a artificial construct central to modern dialogue, but isn't real as far as we like to unify things.

Really is just cognitive ordering, once technology or social circumstances favor a type that type explodes in new activity. My favorite theorist likes to focus on INTJ businessmen, he thinks more or less prior to modern capitalism and computers we didn't do shit, and so were under selected sexually as we didn't sparkle like some others can. Not true at all, history is full of us, Machiavelli, Emperor Augustus, Sun Tzu.... but admittedly you go back far enough, we reach a point where our collection of traits couldn't if been too crucial. I think it wasn't till the nomadic age that we even got our start, when we spread out of Africa, and only then as navigators, figuring out how to keep everyone fed on the advance.

That isn't really a wildly primate centric idea, we were tree dwellers, fruits and insects, occasional forest floor scavenging. All our living relatives limit themselves to that, outside a foray with a stick into the occasional termite mound. Our ability to map and plan started here, we're the best at it, but everyone would have it unconsciously if some are increasingly conscious of it. Note with no written or spoken languages, no real descriptive art, no maps.... are maps "ideological"? No and Yes.... Like I said, Ideology is a modern invention, we apply it to the past, but maps don't have this application, even though they are evolving ideas, philosophical presumptions of what is a map, how you use it change constantly. A Periplus isn't a 17th century ship chart, and that's not a natal astrology chart, they relate, but are used quite differently, using very different but interrelated modes of thought that use one another, but focus on other things in terms of emphasis. You have GPS, Google Earth, in real time. That's wildly ideological, but it doesn't occur to us anymore it is. Just seems outside the realm of intellectual ideas, it no longer has a apparent ordering logic that cascades from one aspect of the mind to the next in choices we have to make and understand. That's the forfront of technology, seems very real, very accurate, we've lost our skepticism, and our insights into the differentia mapping as a broad category is capable of. It's gonna take some time to bust out of this philosophy of space theorizing. Earlier eras, like Cicero, approached memory, imagination and space as mapping, periplus was a list of distances, no images for a map, and termini- boundaries, was a God of boundry stones, people worshipped Hermes along side this, like Cynics and Vagabonds, living off the cuff and thieving. Brigands lived in the hidden and inaccessible. Characters like Robinhood defied kings or emperors, in accord with macho fortune.

Not in our GPS, yet GPS was designed to handle troops on battlefields using guerilla tactics that emphasize all that. "You are here" isn't on Sun Tzu's map of Formlessness, but the ideological guerilla emphasizes this to this day.

That's mapping. One category, all over the place. Multiple modes of mind go into that, order- geometry- meaning- all different in methods that arrive to each. Different methods stem from different styles of thinking.

Structuralism, power politics, it can't see thus map, presumes it is already there. Why I don't advocate such systems.

Our ability to map and plan started here, we're the best at it, but everyone would have it unconsciously if some are increasingly conscious of it.
Writing or record keeping would have been essential to it, I think. Also, I don't think maps can exist without recording motion, or time-keeping. The first time-keeping was celestial (moon, planet movement), later imitated by mechanical gadgets. Chinese astronomy existed before astrology and its function was measuring time and making calendars (probably for agricultural or some other practical purposes). Arabs were also very astronomy based.

Both are based on time keeping - calculating distances with passage of time, and one would still need some sort of record keeping for that. Imagine having to travel across the desert with supplies, do I take 2 days worth or 2 weeks worth of food and water? And to know your current approximate position in the desert you'd just add/subtract the days you were travelling. Periplus would also have to describe locations in terms of time of passage, and GPS also does it, only through satellites. So, basically, with maps, you're doing time keeping, and that also requires record keeping, or some sort of writing.

And what happens when you get lost and need to do corrections? Some systems are better than others in doing that.

There are mapping techniques using intuitive mathematics that don't even have a time varient yet involved, it's purely coincidental intuition and symmetry.

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=X0RAvid6NBw

You likewise can have spacial aspects minus time, or time is played in bizarre manners, such as semi-conscious repetitive loops of eternity where cause and effect isn't universally synchronized, leading to categorical entropy in some places, not in others. (magsj, you finished that video yet?). A lot if religion conceptions of space, be it the Tablet of Cebes or Dante's inferno, are without time. It exists now as then, despite the seep of new characters. You would fully expect to see Nixon in Dante's He'll, Purgatory, or Heaven.... but shit otherwise wouldn't change.

You know, that's pretty racist of you to stereotype all Asians as likeing those things. I think you should tab that. Only people who want to read your racist crap should be reading it, they can untab it to read your demented worldview.

Earth Rooster

Year of the Yang

You’re an Earth Rooster if you’re born in 1969. In 2017, you’re 48 years old. Your Totem Number is 46. Your Unlucky Number is 52.*

The Earth Rooster is an ascetic and a free-thinker, whose sharp critical sense is matched only by his passion for truth.

Fire Tiger

You’re a Fire Tiger if you’re born in 1986. In 2017, you’re 31 years old. Your Totem Number is 3. Your Unlucky Number is 9.*

The Fire Tiger has a seemingly inexhaustible energy. Unpredictable, turbulent, always moving, the Fire Tiger likes to live on a day to day basis.

His freedom is priceless. Besides, he doesn't like social conventions, in which he doesn't recognize himself. Charismatic and flamboyant, the Fire Tiger knows perfectly how to effectively convince others that his interests are also theirs. Theatrical and generous, the Fire Tiger has the natural qualities of a leader, being instinctively domineering, brilliant, and always eager to listen to the people he's responsible for.




The Lovable Taurus Tiger Personality

The addition of the Tiger's influence to the Western astrological sign of Taurus is a favorable one. The normally cool, collected and deep Taurus personality is charmed and enhanced with vivaciousness from the Tiger. In Chinese Astrology being born in the Year of the Tiger is considered very lucky as his characteristics are mostly strong and attractive. The Taurus Tiger personality is an endearing one that is as warm, sensitive and calm but also excitable and lots of fun. A Taurus Tiger individual is a lovely blend of sensible and silly and usually has a good sense of humor. These lovable characters can mix and get along well with most other personalities.

A Taurus Tiger is usually quite practical, patient and careful in everything they do. These are fairly uncomplicated people who will listen carefully and are able to quickly pick up instructions. They have a lot of commonsense and are generally good at coming up with solutions to problems. The Taurus Tiger is happy in most sorts of jobs and their easygoing and tolerant nature makes them popular with workmates. These individual's are fairly sociable and generous with their time and hospitality. As friends they can almost always be relied upon to help out at short notice or offer advice or sympathy.

These personalities have good taste and the Taurus Tiger will often have a keen interest in art and design. This attraction to styles will often be reflected in these peoples choices of their clothing or home decor. A Taurus Tiger likes to be adventurous and bold sometimes when it comes to appearances. They are inclined to believe that clothes are a great way of expressing your individuality. Emotionally these people are neither insecure nor overly demanding. They appear to have a fine balance of emotions that makes them warmhearted, openly honest and attentive.

Money is not particularly important to a Taurus Tiger but most of them they tend to have acquired the Tiger's good luck. They never seem to go short of finances for very long and often win things or stumble upon good opportunities. To relax a Taurus Tiger loves to get close to nature and enjoys anything connected to it. This can range from anything from a few houseplants in the house to going holidaying in the countryside. They have a real appreciation of scenery and wildlife. These people will always appreciate something natural as a gift rather than something manmade.

The weakness is the Taurus Tiger personality does not usually cause them many problems but may be annoying to others. It is the tendency to be a little too predictable and not very enthusiastic about new things. A Taurus Tiger is quite set in their ways and does not really like changes. Their character weakness occurs because the Tiger's lively spiritedness is not particularly prominent in these personalities. So their level of spontaneity and enthusiasm is varied and the strength of the weakness will depend on each individual. It can be a irritating fault but their sweetness more than makes up for it.

1979 here.
You see...a pimp's love is very different from that of a square.
Dating a stripper is like eating a noisy bag of chips in church. Everyone looks at you in disgust, but deep down they want some too.
