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.

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