Year of the Fire Rooster !  

Your Intuitive Chinese Horoscope for 2017

When you read online predictions for this year it is one extreme or the other.  You'll find either very technical and detailed information about the specific stars in each sector of the Ba'gua and the advice can be very overwhelming at times to remedy it.  OR you find the same kind of advice every year like a broken record.  I wanted to try something different and give clairvoyant messages to your Chinese sign this year! 

Rooster    1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005                    

It's your year !  You're attracting attention this year. It's a good time to shine and to put forth your work, your brand, your talents. Don't be vain but don'to hide yourself this year. Your star is on the rise.  Y may also hire an assistant, or ask someone close to assist you so you can get ahead in your life - work or personal projects. Don't do things solo this year.  It's a good year for love for you too! Commitments can be affirmed and deepen, and for singles you can attract different partners than usual - perhaps a great love !

Try to get enough rest this year so your health doesn't' suffer and you are on top of your game socially so you can take advantage of opportunities.  You can push yourself too hard, and you likely know this, so do your best not to overload yourself with things or people, and focus on the ones that propel you in life. People are looking up to you and relying on your this year too. If you can act like a positive and humble example as a role model it will bring out the best in you. A good year ahead. 

Dog      1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006

This year there is a lot of discussion and talking. Sometimes it'll be productive and a lot of it will be extraneous or in vain.  If you are anxious it is a better strategy to listen because everyone needs to express themselves and there might be a lot of hot air.  You are wondering who is in your corner and who isn't. You aren't always clear who to be loyal to and who is loyal to you.  There is a message about your home this year - meaning you could move residence, renovate, or be involved more with your neighbours than usual.  There will be more time spent at home and thinking about the comfort of your home, making adjustments.  Work is full of ups and downs this year too - a bit of a revolving door for new people, clients, challenges, economic shifts. Overall you're fine as usual, but it's a bit of a roller coaster of a time.  Always be careful who your serve, as a dog you will be loyal to your "master" no matter what. Conserve your energy and make sure you keep fit this year too. 

Pig      1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007

This year you are as reliable and loyal as you usually are. It's a nice year for family life - closer and enjoying each other more than you have in a while. There is a good spirit of helpfulness and team work for you with friends, co-workers, and family.  There is more comfort, calm and stability this year.  It's not a super ambitious year career wise, more a time for regrouping, healing, enjoying rest , home and intimate life. It's lovely!  Nip any conflicts in the bud and you will avoid a lot of drama this year that others may be addicted to in your entourage. 

Rat      1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008

This year there is a lot of activity and a does of impatience in you this year. You want everything and you want it all now.  You believe it's all possible to have quickly as well - but the Rooster is more resistant to that kind of pace. He likes methodical and practical approaches to life.  It's a good year then to adjust your goals and be ambitious but give things a bit longer than you are excited about.  So if things aren't going as fast as you want to people don't seem as enthusiastic as you do, try not to take it personally - they just want things to progress a bit slower than you do.  At the same time - look for people who are competent and ready to act on your plans together. You can accomplish a lot this year. Love life gets easier this year too - more commitment and deeper connection are all possible this year, including deeper friendships and family ties as well. Money can come and go quickly this year so it's a good idea to save and delay big purchases until you've thought it all though.  Keep yourself busy with personal projects that satisfy you .

Ox      1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009

This year part of you is wondering how the heck did this happen ? How did I get where I am now? You might feel genuinely puzzled about your world and where to go next in life.  You may be a bit frustrated by this lack of clarity too. Try to take time alone and quiet the head-noise of what others think and what others wants of you. You must pull back and take time to hear your own inner voice and desires. Someone around you is making a lot of noise and distraction.  Don't be afraid to stand alone - whether that means you take an unpopular opinion, need solitude, or maintain certain traditions - you need to feel your space and freedom to feel strong again. The ox always handles many burdens because your'e strong enough to carry it, but why carry it unless you truly want to ? 

Tiger   1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010

This year many things can come easily to you if you step out of your own way. Sometimes you make things much harder and more complex for yourself than they need to be. If you resist the tendency to over-think your life and go with instinct you will see lots of opportunities present themselves and they can work out quite easily for you.  What you crave is a challenge - an people you admire around you - or you get bored.  When you're too bored you stir up the pot and sometimes create drama - but drama is really  a waste of this great energy you have!  Take advantage of this year where you find work more effortless, and where you can see through things clearer than ever and let yourself go after a bigger goal with a larger purpose.  Leadership skills ! use them !

Rabbit   1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011

This year is your opposite sign so it can be a bit tougher to navigate.  Your affectionate nature may need to be more conservative, and you may want to test the compatibility and receptivity of others to your feelings so you don't get hurt or feel taken advantage of.  You may feel you give more than you receive in return so to prevent this you may need to just pull back on giving your all to someone or even your work.  You can use your creative drives to produce something for yourself though ! It can be a prolific year if you channel it into a creative endeavour - be it writing, painting, building or renovating - something you've been wanting to do just for yourself.  There is also a message when it comes to work that you may be up against a group of people who try to either dominate or even bully people in your environment.  Try to minimise conflicts before they start - Rooster years people can have tempers, and you hate conflicts. So it' s a good year to mind your own business and do things you want behind the scenes with your select friends :)

Dragon   1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012

This year there is a playful attitude in the air for you. You can regard the world with wonder and have many interesting conversations. You have high energy and want to engage more with people, yet you hold yourself back or protect yourself too. You want to be sure you're appreciated, taken seriously and loved - and the Rooster can give you this.  So it's a good year to learn how to let people into your heart again, and find true love again too.  Work will keep you very busy and may even be demanding at times, but you're more interested in other things than work-a-holic tendencies.  There must be some adventure and wonder to life for you to be happy. Something needs to feel new, unpredictable ( not crazy) just not routine.  It's  a year to expand your horizons and be more bold. 

Snake   1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013

This year is compatible with you so it can be very good.  This year you need a plan of action to carry you through the big changes you want to make. It won't just happen on its' own and you can get very distracted along the way to your goal, or discouraged it isn't moving as fast as you want.  This is a good year for love - finding it or deepening what you have already, but if you've thought of leaving then it's also the year you leave. This year there will be closeness and fun again, and you wont' settle anymore.   Learning comes back to the forefront again this year as well - schooling, studies, resuming old hobbies, lots of reading etc. This year you enrich yourself and strengthen your own soul vs pleasing others. 

Horse   1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014

This year there is a lot you will need to hear and listen to - a wake up call of sorts for you.  It's not  a bad things at all because part of you has been sleeping and is ready to be awakened. You are normally a passionate person and a social person so this year should bring this back to your life.  It's a good year for asking for help or delegating to others and not try to do everything all by yourself.  You'll be asked to overcome any pride that stands in your way as you heal aspects of your life.  Sometimes you may feel like you need to withdraw from others to protect yourself, but this year it's vital that you don't do this for too long.  Your needs will be met in terms of shelter, finances and work. The main focus is expansion of social networks, repairing of family and friendships, and expressing your passions again with joy. 

Goat   1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015

This year you may not be on the same page as others but you can still get along and work well enough together.  You aren't entirely sure which direction to go in.  Family duties call you and you are always ready to help them.  However you need to move forward with some personal goals.  If you have been feeling stagnation or weariness then you need to address the causes and change habits if need be.  It's time to find your creative fire once again.  You can still be there for others AND start things for yourself.   You also will benefit to set boundaries at work this year - don't let people boss your around in any way.  There might be more folks competing or vying for air space in the workplace - but you can stay out of it. Make time for your love life this year as well. You can meet someone special if you take your time to date, and for those already attached you can find time for a beautiful vacation somewhere alone. 

Monkey   1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016

This year  you will want to clear up any tax issues or legal matters.  A common dispute could turn into a legal matter if it isn't solved quickly - people are more upset or offended than you may realise, even if you find the matter small.  There are chances to advance in your career this year through working more behind the scenes than the spotlight. Be indispensable.  Children want extra time and care this year if you have them ( this can also include pets and people you nurture in general). They will all require more of your focus and want more interaction - it'll bring you much closer.  In love matters this can be a great year if you communicate well.  It's not a year for any game playing. It's time for honesty and transparency with a partner or potential - and it will pay off. This applies if you're married or dating - be honest and talk about things.  There are also opportunities financially but you will have to be very open and adaptable. This can mean shifting your investments, to being extra flexible in your budget for things that come up.  You like a bit of risk, and if well calculated it could be a good year for speculation and taking chances.  Nothing impulsive though.  Health wise it feels you are quite tired at the beginning of the Rooster year so pace yourself and rest. You will rebound and exercise needs to be a priority this year.
