Note: when determining your Chinese Animal Sign from your year of birth, the year begins on 4 February according to the solar calendar which is used for astrology & feng shui purposes. The lunar calendar (which begins on 28 January 2017) is used mainly for annual celebrations and festivals linked to the cycles of the moon.
Rooster (You) 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005
During 2017 the Jia Chen/Wood Dragon solar month (ie 5 April until 5 May 2017) provides you with a fortunate 6 Harmony combination of energy, thus making this one of the luckiest months of the year for you if Metal element is favourable in your personal 4 Pillars astrology. In order to tap into this luck potential you need to focus your activities around what you wish to achieve and have specific goals and an action plan in place.
The influence of the annual 3 Lu Cun and Tai Sui energies in the Rooster zone (ie West sector) in 2017 indicates you will need to be mindful of getting involved in petty disputes and politicking.
Abundance opportunity in general is more likely to occur around February, June, October and November, however remember, in order to achieve positive results you need to actually do something constructive, plan, do your due diligence and take action in order to make good use of positive energy that attracts opportunity to you.
Health-wise, be extra cautious with the feet and lower limbs and wear sensible footwear. Rooster individuals may be more prone to developing issues connected with the feet and lower limbs this year.
People born in the year of the Dragon make good mentors/allies and this partnership can attract abundance luck to you. Your favourable hours in the day are: 1am-3am, 9am-11am & 5pm-7pm.
Dog (Xu) 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006
In 2017 you should adopt a generally cautious and conservative approach to spending and try to avoid problematic issues surfacing due to miscommunication – especially around July, September, October and November.
Take time to really listen to what friends and loved ones are trying to tell you – their message is important.
Your home and family environment is highlighted and likely to be tested during the Fire Rooster year. It’s important that you avoid impulsive words and actions and check your facts carefully before responding.
Abundance opportunities are more likely to occur around February, March, April, June, August, November and December.
The presence of the annual 2 Black qi in the Xu/Dog location indicates there may be some health issues to contend with in 2017. Keep a gourd or empty metallic gourd-shaped vase (with a big belly, narrow neck and an opening at the top) in the NW sector of your home and beside, under or behind your bed to help add a protective influence against the influence of the annual 2 Black Qi while sleeping.
Be especially cautious with your health in March, September and November.
People born in the year of the Rabbit make good mentors/allies and this partnership can attract abundance luck to you. Your favourable hours in the day are: 3am-5am, 11am-1pm & 7pm-9pm.
Boar (Hai) 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007
2017 year of the Fire Rooster will see the annual 2 Black qi residing in the Northwest sector which also governs your personal Hai/Boar energy. This indicates you will need to be diligent in looking after your physical, mental and emotional health this year.
Keep a gourd or empty metallic gourd-shaped vase (ie with a big belly, narrow neck and an opening at the top) in the NW sector of your home and beside, under or behind your bed to help reduce the effect of the annual 2 Black sickness qi.
It will also help to play beautiful sounding piano music in the Northwest sector of your home in 2017. The sound of metal (from harmonious piano music, a chiming pendulum clock or a singing bowl) will reduce the sickness qi of the annual 2 Black and help restore some beneficial character of the qi that supports spiritual development and learning how to save and budget properly.
Pay extra attention to any health ailments connected with the limbs or spine this year, especially around February, September and December.
You are more likely to connect with abundance opportunity around March, May, July, October and November.

Rat (Zi) 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008
During 2017 the influence of the annual Fire Rooster energy can be used productively to fine tune your budget and get super organised with your financial planning and long term financial goals. This will be a year for conservative spending, with the main focus on fine tuning and building upon what you have already accumulated financially via assets and investments.
There is positive mentor/supporter energy available to Rat individuals in 2017 – most likely via a female individual. This could be in the form of friendly support from a maternal or sisterly figure, a female boss or female life coach for example.
Be wary of getting caught up in gossip and/or emotional wounds via betrayal of trust. Keep your cards close to your chest in 2017 and make sure you are contractually protected regarding any joint ventures or partnership agreements you may enter into.
Health-wise, you may be prone to bouts of potential depression this year, especially if you overindulge in alcohol. I’d advise placing some metal element colour or form (ie gold, silver, shiny grey, golden yellow colour and curved, round shapes) in the centre of your home and space clear your home at least once a month with the sound of metal via a singing bowl, metallic clearing bell or beautiful piano music.
People born in the year of the Ox make good mentors/allies and this partnership can attract abundance luck to you. Your favourable hours in the day are: 11pm-1am, 7am-9am & 3pm-5pm.
Ox (Chou) 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009
The Ox energy combines favourably with the annual qi of the Rooster year in 2017 and this indicates a lot of energy occurring in your social/relationship zone. The hard work and determination you put into your career goals will be rewarded in 2017, especially if you adopt a ‘çan do’ approach and focus on developing your skills and take on more responsibility in order to gain valuable recognition from your superiors.
There may be some professional jealousy to contend with, so make sure you maintain a purely professional persona in the work place and stick to the facts without letting things become personal.
Support is available via 3 Harmony qi which connects with your professional reputation and promotion of your skills and talents. There is potential to rise in the ranks career-wise as well as support for running your own business – especially if your current 10 year luck pillar (via your 4 Pillars astrology) contains direct or indirect wealth qi. Of course in order to benefit from the career luck available to you in 2017 you have to know what you want and take action via due diligence, education and putting together a strategic plan of action for the steps you need to take to reach your professional goals.
The Rooster year is a positive time for making long term investments as long as you have properly researched the area you wish to invest in. Positive opportunity is more likely to occur around March, May, August, October and November.

Rabbit (Mao) 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011
In 2017 the annual Rooster qi clashes with your Rabbit energy, indicating change is eminent. This clash of energy can trigger issues such as moving home, change in your work environment (and potential clashes with your peers) and/or change affecting your closest relationships. The best thing to do during a clash year like this is to embrace the change and be prepared for the change to occur or be triggered by the eclipses occurring in February and August.
This will be a year to set realistic goals and maintain a pragmatic and cautious approach in regard to your finances and investments.
During the Fire Rooster year, the Tai Sui energy affects the centre of West and if you sit facing towards 262.5 – 277.5 degrees West while working, studying or when attending important meetings, you will be metaphorically hitting your head against a very unproductive brick wall. The Tai Sui energy will block progress, productivity and creativity if you confront it in the work place during the Rooster year.
You should be very careful to avoid renovating or excavating in the East, South or centre of the West sector of your home and property this year and wear a Dragon pendant or key ring to symbolically appease the clash of energy with the Rooster qi.

During the Fire Rooster year, the annual 9 Purple qi will reside in the Si/Snake zone and connect you with added creativity, social and networking energy.

Be diligent with security in 2017 – esp in the Southwest sector of your home and property.
