2017 Year of Fire Chicken

2017 is the year of the Fire Chicken. Starting on the new moon of Jan. 28, with  celebrations continuing to the full moon on Feb. 11, 2017.

Remember: In a Chicken Year, all of the Chinese animals can reap great rewards by tapping into Chicken traits. Loyalty, commitment, hard work, family values, and top-notch appearances are just some of the characteristics that will be rewarded this year.
Fire/red is connecting to the blood. Fire can melt the metal. Female Metal of Chicken doesn't like the Fire of 2017. Red Chicken means two arguing persons coming to meet you. Both of them won't help you together. Therefore, your luck in 2017 will be mixing good and bad. Metal is related to autumn and Lungs, so watch your respiratory system this year. (see Fall page)
The Year of the Rooster will be a powerful one, with no middle of the road when it comes to moving forward. This year, impressions count. You’ll want to look your best and be clear on your intentions concerning love, money, and business. Stick to practical and well-proven paths to ensure success, rather than risky ventures.

Chicken is connected the west. Chicken Hour is between 17:00 to 19:00 p.m. That's the sunset time. That implies it's the time to take a rest. It's also about the dinner time. That's the relaxing and joyful moment. In Chinese I-Ching, Female Metal is connected to Lake. That's another sign of happy time. Therefore, 2017 of Chicken will be an auspicious year to many people.
