Chinese Astrology Is Telling You In Detail What The Year Of The Rooster Will Bring!


Happy Chinese New Year 2017! The Year of the Rooster. The new year has begun and will last until Feb 15, 2018. 

The new year, also known as the Spring Festival, is marked by the lunisolar Chinese calendar, so the date changes from year to year.

Each Chinese New Year is characterized by one of 12 animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac.

The Chinese Zodiac is divided into 12 blocks (or houses) just like its western counterpart, but with the major difference being that each house has a time-length of one year instead of one month. 

This year, it's the Year of the Rooster, the 10th animal in the cycle. The next Year of the Rooster will be in 2029.

1. According to Chinese astrology, each year is associated with one of five elements as well as an animal, including gold (metal), wood, water, fire or Earth.

The element, combined with the zodiac animal, sets the astrology for the year. This year is a fire year, and so those born in 2017 are Fire Roosters. The last Fire Rooster Year was 1957.

Roosters are characterized as observant and hardworking. Active and talkative, Roosters tend to enjoy social events and being at the center of attention, according to Chinese astrology. They also typically enjoy sports, according to traits set by the astrology.
