2017 is the year of the Fire Rooster in the Chinese zodiac. This is a year which will be characterized by renewal, restoration, and expansion. While many people found 2016 to be a difficult and exhausting year, a Rooster year (and in particular a Fire Rooster year) provides the opportunity to rise and thrive. Fire brings passion, creativity, joy, and success. It also brings hard work, but if you keep your composure and see through the challenges, you will be rewarded and will be better off than before. As we have in years past, we will rely on our astrologer friend, Susan Levitt, to elaborate and provide more insight into what this dynamic and exciting year will bring:
Some translations refer to 2017 as Rooster year or Chicken year, but I use the translation Phoenix because it brings opportunities for rebirth and transformation. Phoenix year is fortunate for all Phoenixes, and for Phoenix’s most compatible signs Ox, Snake, and Dragon. Phoenix energy can, at times, be challenging for Rabbit. Phoenix correlates to the Western sign Virgo.
Phoenix is a brilliant, inspirational, and fearless visionary. The element Fire is perfect for Phoenix because Fire brings strength, passion, bravery, and leadership. So now is the year to break free, claim your destiny, and overcome obstacles. You can heal past actions, even past lives, with your new awareness.
Three tips for success are:
First, pay attention to your health. Not seen a dentist, or any type of delay in dealing with your health? This is the year to finally address health issues, not let it drag on. If you feel a bit exhausted after Fire Monkey 2016, then 2017 is especially time to focus on health, healing, and restoration. Same with your home. Time to clean out the old and unused, and live more efficiently in this Fire bird year.
Second is to organize your finances. Deal with any debt, plan, budget, and be aware of your spending. Those born in Phoenix year are naturally very good at accounting, can find a bargain, and appreciate thrift as do Phoenix’s best friends Ox and Snake.
Third is to work hard with focus. 2017 is the year to apply yourself in your career. Be persistent, yet flexible. This is not the time to goof off or take your job for granted. Phoenix year is work before play, so get organized and contribute on the job. For some, it may feel like beak to the grindstone with superiors criticizing or micromanaging. But stay strong and do the work! Excuses will not be tolerated in a no-nonsense Phoenix year.
