THE year of the Rooster began with the new moon last January 28, but it's solar start begins today, February 3, 2017.

The list below is just a general guide. Aside from the year, one has to take into consideration the month, the day and the hour for an accurate destiny chart. Schedule a Bazi reading with Chiara and Aa.

They trained under world famous Feng Shui Grandmaster Raymond Lo.

This year promises to be a very fortunate year for the Dragon, the Snake and the Ox. It is a better year than last year for the Monkey, the Tiger and the Pig.

We would like to remind the Rabbit, the Rooster and everyone born in the Rabbit Month (March 5 to April 3) and the Rooster Month (September 7 to October 7) to carry with them the protection to minimize the effects of the Rooster Year.

Rabbits are in clash with the Rooster Year, and Roosters are in penalty with the Rooster Year, so these 2 signs are more prone to accidents and illnesses and frustrations. See us to have a smoother year.

Goats have a relatively unstable year, so they need to do more acts of charity, do tithing, avoid visiting the sick in hospitals or attending wakes and funerals.

Dogs need to exert effort to be more positive and focus on the goal, not on the potholes.

Everyone must be aware of where the Flying Stars transfer to this year, so they can subdue or exhaust the negative ones. The Rooster Year can bring with it fire disasters, bullets, injuries to the back and small bones, so take the necessary precautions and install the cures.

Chiara says take particular care of your heart and lungs. There will be more incidences of heart attacks and strokes. Aa reminds everyone to be more aware of what they are doing because there will be an influx of squished fingers and stubbed toes this year.

All signs born in years ending in 6 and 7 (1956, 57, 1966, 67 and etc) will have a smoother year.
