CHINESE NEW YEAR 2017

28 JAN 2017

Year of the Rooster of Solitude

Part I

“I don’t want any yes-men around me. I want everybody to tell me the truth, even if it costs them their job.”

Samuel Goldwyn, film executive of MGM fame

“A few yes-men may be born, but mostly they are made. Fear is a great breeder of them.”

William Wrigley, of chewing gum fame, Rooster of Solitude in the Month Pillar

Gong hey fat choi, Everyone!

Welcome to the year of the Rooster of Solitude, or the Fire/Red Rooster. Given the year that was, the Year of the Mountain Monkey, and what we are faced with in this year, there is quite a bit to cover in this New Year installment, so it will be a letter in two parts. Given also that this letter will describe the entire year, though, there is also plenty of time to read it, so take your time and enjoy! We will do this also because Chinese astrology is not well understood in the West, so more than the usual explanation is in order. The first half of this letter will deal with the character of the Rooster and the Chinese dynamics of the year in general. Then, in the second half we will have a look at the world in relation to the Chinese astrology and see if we can get some idea of what is to come. It will be a very full year, much like Mountain Monkey years, and we will see the start of major changes in finances and world alliances, as we have seen in other Fire Rooster years...

A look at the year in general and the character of the Fire Rooster in this half. To read more, go to the PDF button above. The world situation and what is to come is covered in Part 2, article 22.
