Chinese astrology predictions for 2017 - Fire Rooster year

This year’s Chinese astrology sees the return of the Fire Rooster which last appeared in the Chinese horoscope in 1957; a time of outstanding scientific breakthroughs in physics, and medicine. The Sputnik program was launched, and a temporary artificial heart, along with the internal pacemaker were invented. We can expect similar breakthroughs this year, especially in organ transplant, microsurgery and drug development.

The conflict between Fire representing the masses and the metal of the Rooster signifying the government continues from last year and becomes even more intense. This suggests a major breakup and re-organisation of political regimes, perhaps leading to independence or devolution. 

In feng shui and Chinese metaphysics we use what is known as Five Elements to balance energy conflicts. According to these principles the much needed element of earth will stabilise the disparity between Fire and metal. Lucky for us, in its greatest form this influence represents humanity, and this puts us clearly in charge of our own destiny.

Luckier still, since 2008 we are naturally in an earth element cycle which spans 12 years; a complete cycle of the Chinese zodiac. Consequently, both current and future global affairs should be more easily settled.

Fire Rooster gloval politics Although remaining strictly apolitical, and analysing just the Chinese astrology Ba Zi chart of US President Donald Trump, we see he already has this earth element. The Rooster will therefore signify grace and natural development for his people and it should be a great year to be an American. It will certainly be a memorable year for him, who will gain a special alignment within his horoscope from February 3rd onwards. This will make him even more expressive and dedicated to his country and people. However, a possibly adverse effect is confusion with his supporters and citizens and as we have already seen in January 2017; the time of writing, he is very quick to respond.

Due to another completely separate and permanent alignment with the Chinese zodiac animals, we see his support is already too strong. Luckily, this years secondary alignment with the Rooster removes some of this influence, and converts this into proper service towards his people, a most noble and fortunate quality.His most favourable element is metal, which he got from managing his empire. However, this is nothing compared to the magnitude of metal he will get from running his country. He should therefore be a very successful president as a result.  Nevertheless, the Rooster being associated with the west, he will still occupy the world stage, but then so will his countrymen and we wish them all success in their endeavours and look forward to forging stronger ties with them.  

Rooster represnts the west Europe is also in “the West” and affairs here will be prominent this year, particularly France, which is directly associated with the Rooster, this indicates that the majority of people will have their way.

Returning to nature this earth element also signifies awareness of environment as well as  feng shui, and the success of last year will lead to greater results and popularity in 2017. In this regard the Fire influence denotes drive and providing awareness or our planet’s needs, whilst metal indicates proper care and management.

Interestingly, this Fire element also denotes a spiritual dimension, whilst metal is symbolic or esotericism or metaphysics. All of which will be prominent in the period ahead and we can all expect many special moments as we interact with it. Collectively, they will help us form a more positive perspective and act as a beacon, not just a light, at what might appear to be the end of a proverbial tunnel.

Fire also denotes comedy and laughter and new forms of comedy and their exponent’s will come to the fore in the field of entertainment. So despite any current gloom, there should be plenty to enjoy and laugh about.

Fire signifies opticsIt will be best to share this laughter with others as another fire aspect could lead to a very insular existence as Virtual Reality increases its popularity to perhaps an all-time high. Remaining grounded and in touch with friends and family provides the earth element and will “keep you healthy”, remember it counterbalances any conflicts or issues?

Speech and languages or development of the human voice with either speaking or singing will feature strongly this year. Dentists and dermatologists will also enjoy a great year. 

Weather-wise, the first half of the year should be unusually bright and warm and we should make the most of this, as the second half will be colder, perhaps with more snowfall than we expect.

The Arts, will continue their popularity but this time smaller screens will become more prominent as major developments in new forms of UHD TV’s are released.  Performance and dance will also feature prominently in Music videos heralding further “Gangnam style” moves.

Spicy and bitter or Umami flavours will be a popular food trend, as will root vegetables and BBQ’s or outdoor cooking will be the perfect environment to enjoy them, especially in the first half of the year.

Rooster signifies cycling Industry wise, chemical, entertainment, photographic and optical, nuclear sciences, design and graphics sectors should be prominent until August, when automotive, especially two wheeled vehicles, engineering, precious gems and metal trading, medical and service sectors will thrive during the second half of the year.

Chinese astrology personal Predictions

Contrary to popular belief, there are actually four animals in a Chinese astrology chart, not just one for your year of birth. In addition to the zodiac sign for the year of birth, we all have Chinese animal signs for our day, month and the time of birth. If this is news to you, you can get a free Chinese astrology chart called the Four Pillars of Destiny Chart, then return to this page to see how your four Chinese animal signs will fare this year.

Do you have a Fire Rooster in your Chinese horoscope?

If you have a Fire Rooster in your Chinese horoscope, particular as your day of birth, it denotes wealth and management possibilities, although it could also indicate a lack of confidence or self-esteem. However, if you have water and wood elements in your chart then you should be “firing on all cylinders” and you should be both vibrant and successful in most endeavours. If not, feng shui will help you to incorporate this influence into your life.

Are you a Fire Rooster?

If fire Rooster is in your horoscope it indicates money luck on the positive side but extreme control on the negative aspect. In common with the recent astrology readings this can mean supressing emotions and depending on the rest of the horoscope would need to be balanced, either with earth or water and wood. In 2017 you would expect to make money easily and if male it can also indicate romance or even marriage. Health wise you may have a liver, blood, small intestine, teeth or finger problems.
