The Chinese zodiac calls it the year of the rooster. Herein are the Internet data anent this timeline.

The rooster Years are a blend of righteousness and justice, bombast and logistical efficiency. Public and private administration jobs, military careers or police jobs are highly favored.

Even though the rotation cycles of months, seasons and days continuously bring diversity to the energy flow of the 5 elements of Chinese cosmology, the presence of a predominant element governing the annual cycle is never seen as the best of omens in Chinese tradition.

The following Monday (January 30, 2017) after the Chinese New Year 2017 festival week-end celebrations is a public Holiday in China,Singapore & Hong Kong.

Just like Feng Shui teachings, the balance of power between the five elements generates happiness and fulfillment. The lack of energetic diversity induced by a dominating Element during a New Year of the Rooster, a New Year of the Rabbit and a New Year of the Rat, intensify the disturbance of the cyclical forces of time with those inherent to each sign of Chinese astrology.

It is therefore advisable to stay on guard before considering the possibility of a quick and easy investment return on a new business venture during Rooster Years.


Given the energy distribution of the 5 elements all along the year, it is best to start your projects in the fall or during the last two weeks of each season. Indeed, late seasons periods are represented by the Earth element, critical and useful for its stabilizing virtues, particularly during Years of the Fire Rooster.

The combination of this year’s element Fire with the element Metal highlights tensions with other energetic deficiencies, creating periods unfit to change.

If you’re single, this is a very good year to start a new relationship. However, romances that could have grown into solid marriages over time could well be cut short for reasons beyond the control of the new lovebirds; for instance, a professional or family move to another state or country.

Despite the tension and imbalance that dominate in 2017, this year is paradoxically auspicious for weddings. One shouldn’t forget that Red (color of the element Fire) is the traditional color of the wedding dress in China and other Asian countries, while the color White symbolizes mourning.

Energy Flow

In order to balance the energy mode of time that can provide benefits for one’s personal karma, it is best to wear jewelry and clothes respecting the composition and color of the Element they are supposed to represent (to discover the Karma Weather infographics associated with each of the elements; Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wood, click h ere).

These balancing principles concerning your wardrobe and accessories, which are connected to Feng Shui, also apply to the interior design of home and office alike. In 2017, it is highly recommended to favor terracotta objects or jewelry whose colors are related to the Earth element, such as yellow or brown sphalerite, or even bracelets in sienna color.

Have a blessed 2017.
