December 18 - December 24, 2017
In the build up to Monday's New Moon there has been a push to ensure the communication lines are open, something that you can continue after it ends. It is Monday's New Moon that brings the month of the Pig to a close, but at the same time kicks off the month of the Rat, a month that for the Rooster is all about home, family and/or property matters and it comes just in time for the holiday period. If you're in the property market or are looking at signing documents, then Monday will be the perfect day, able to catch the tail of the Pig's communication prowess, on what will be a good day for new beginnings on the home front. This will also usher in a push to make your home your sanctuary. If you're hanging out for the holiday period, a staycation could fit your needs perfectly.
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.
