October 16 - October 22, 2017
For you, the final days of the month of the Rooster are always going to be important. With the month of the Rooster ending on Friday's New Moon you have just a few days to align yourself with your native energy and in the same way that you would during your birthday month, create the intentions and resolutions you will take with you into the future. This year this is a lot more important, because for the first time in 12 years, the month of the Rooster is falling during the Year of the Rooster. With the Year of the Rooster not running its course until February, you're able to make new intentions, knowing you have a much better chance of staying true to your own truth and your own sense of purpose. This is less about making plans for the future and more about living and walking your personal truth, knowing that when you do the future comes to meet you rather than you needing to find it.
2017 - Year of the Rooster
Welcome to the Year of the Rooster, a year that literally has your name all over it. If you had expected life to go easy on a Rooster in the Year of the Rooster and that you could cruise, you also knew that wasn’t likely.
It takes a Rooster to know a Rooster, so you know this is going to be a busy year, a year for rolling up your sleeves and getting things done. Yet what you’re likely to be busy with, apart from the usual demands of home, work and life itself, are the major new doors opening in your life.
The Year of the Rooster isn’t just a chance to reconnect with your native energy. This brings you to the start of a new 12 year launch cycle. Until the Year of the Rooster ends on the 16th February 2018, this will be a time of opening major new doors, major new life events and in general laying down the foundations for the next 12 years. Many people experience major life events during their native year. You may move house, start a new job, a new relationship, a new business or a new project.
As you rediscover your personal truth and connect with your inner voice, everything in your life will need to be authentic or it will be up for change. This may have already begun, especially on the home front. There is a strong nesting urge that is triggered just before the Year of the Rooster begins, an urge to be living where and how you feel strengthened. The Year of the Rooster brings a feeling of coming home. You know and understand the hard working principles of the Rooster, for you share them. This is a year where you’re able to accomplish a lot, but also get rewarded for your efforts.
As those around you cotton on to what the Rooster expects from them, expect them to appreciate their own Rooster in their midst. Expect both personal and professional recognition.
About the Rooster
A Rooster is brave, funny and witty. Entertaining and performing puts them in the center of attention, which is exactly where they enjoy being. They can be picky, vain and critical.
Roosters can be really eccentric and sometimes may seem selfish in their way of life. They are devoted to work and lifelong learning. Confident, motivated people, they may sometimes come across as pompous. While they can be brutally honest, they are also loyal and trustworthy.
Roosters are intelligent creatures that are reliable and self-efficient. They are good with money and sometimes manage other people's money better than their own. Punctual people with highly-disciplined minds, Roosters boast excellence at organizing people and things. They also love to be praised for it.
They are prone to changeable mood surges that leave them either extremely happy or very miserable. Similarly with their opinions and personal relationships, Roosters have no place for apathy in their lives. They either like or dislike intensely.
