Chinese Horoscope 2017: The year of the rooster
Written by Astro Marie
On the 28th of January 2017, we said goodbye to the year of the fire monkey and have welcome the year of the fire rooster, which lasts until February 15, 2018.
After last year, in which spontaneous and unconventional actions were often rewarded, the year of the rooster is now here. That means it is better to be more cautious and not to act too hastily. Roosters are prone to engage in particularly large (and numerous) projects. In their vanity, they do not want to acknowledge that even their abilities have limits. It is therefore advisable to not take risks, and it is preferable to be on the safe side. A forward-looking and prudent approach will surely be rewarded, and hard work will be capped off with success. It is also helpful that the rooster has a special talent for organization. This will help us steer our plans towards the right path and to bring order to chaos.
Diplomats will again have much to do in 2017
Whether in their private life or on the great stages of society and politics: Conflicts may arise over and over again this year. Today people tend to pay too much attention to themselves and see their approach as the only correct one. This, of course, fosters disputes and disagreements. Particularly with regard to disagreements at the political level, both within the EU and between the EU and Russia or Turkey, this conduct may lead to problems in 2017. Diplomacy is simply not one of the strengths of the rooster.
But no one wants to argue seriously, because although the rooster tends to boast, peace, security, and order are ultimately very important to him. Thus, all disputes will certainly be settled to the satisfaction of all. It is also helpful that the rooster is not a hothead and preserves a cool head even in tricky situations.
The growing need for solid family structures
In love-life matters, the rooster promotes the desire for a stable relationship and a peaceful family life. However, if you are superstitious, you should move a planned wedding to another year: It is said that a rooster year is a "widow's year", and therefore, in 2005 (the last year of the rooster), the registry offices in Shanghai probably had a lot to do before the beginning of the rooster year, so that marriages could occur before the end of the year of the monkey.
But you should not take this too seriously; we are convinced of the fact that even marriages that take place in 2017 are done under a good omen!
The fire rooster contributes energy
The year of 2017 occurs under the element fire, and this last happened in 1957. What does this mean? The fire releases new energies within us, which has to be directed to good things. Centers of conflict can emerge faster than usual, but at the same time, the necessary energy is also there to achieve goals and promote plans.
All in all, it will certainly be an exciting year, opening up many new possibilities for us. Now it is up to us to prove our vigor and to use our strengths purposefully. But please always consider the needs of our fellow human beings, this is the only way 2017 can bring personal happiness.

After the monkey year, which was hopefully lucky for all rats, things become somewhat more challenging in the year of the rooster. It is now time to build on the successes achieved in 2016 and to continue the projects that have been started. This is certainly not always easy, but since rats are often pugnacious and ambitious, this will certainly work well. They should pay particular attention and not let themselves be carried away with risky projects. But with all of this stress, of course, fun should not be forgotten: In 2017 the sociable rat will have plenty of opportunities to relax and celebrate!

For the harmony-loving sheep, the loud, thumping-around characteristics of the year of the rooster is a bit tiring.

However, these profits should not be spent immediately; it is more important to stop and think about possible opportunities.

The monkey in the year of the rooster
The monkey should not let himself be carried away too much by the activities of a rooster year. Their prospect of success is rather moderate, and it would be the right time to reflect on family and to spend relaxing and harmonious weeks with their loved ones. However, if a monkey has professional plans that they are reluctant to postpone, they should be particularly prudent about moving forward and should first gauge their possibilities. Otherwise, they run the risk of overestimating their abilities. Also, they should be aware that they will be given nothing for free this year and that they will have to work hard to achieve success. If they stick to it, however, important goals can be achieved!
