Feb 3th marks the beginning of the Yang wood month which is the start of our year of the Yin Fire Rooster. The rooster bodes well for new businesses and new endeavors in 2017. New businesses that are earned with hard work and consistent effort will do well. This is a year to spread the word about your projects, your offerings, your business, your accomplishments etc. The rooster isn’t afraid to boast and cock to all those around him. Be mindful that too much arrogance is not a blessing and that we should all try to remember to take pride in our offerings without boasting too loudly about our achievements.
It should be a much more predictable year than last year’s Monkey year…. the Rooster wakes us up each day and is timely and consistent. Roosters care about family and home life, protecting what they love.
2017 in Chinese astrology brings us yin fire over yin metal. Yin fire is like the candle or spark, and yin metal under it is like a precious jewel. So these two elements together bring an image of sparkling stones or gems. This is a very lovely and auspicious image and can bring much beauty for those who need more metal and fire in their BaZi. Of course how this affects your personal year will depend upon what elements are present in your birth chart and whether or not fire and metal influence you in a positive or negative way. Fire above metal also has the relationship of control because it is fire that yields the metal and bends it into form. This can bring organization, better systems, and more order to us all as we enter the new year.
Whatever the Rooster brings to you, we wish you an auspicious year filled with beauty, success, and good fortune.
