We are approaching Chinese New Year. 2017 is the year of the Rooster. Each year is represented by one of 12 animals, rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. So the year of the Rooster only comes around once every 12 years.
In Chinese 5 element theory, each year is also represented by one of the 5 elements, wood, fire, earth, metal or water. So if you add this into the equation, 2017 is the year of the fire rooster, which will only come around once every 60 years. So the last year of the fire rooster was in 1957.
It is theorised that a person's personality and energetic make-up is partially due to the energetics of the year that they were born in. Roosters are confident characters, popular in a crowd, but also loyal. They like to be the centre of attention, and always like to be dressed for the ocassion. Fire Roosters are said to be trustworthy individuals, with a strong sense of time keeping and are responsible people especially when it comes to their work.
Wishing you all the best for the year of the Rooster.
