3rd-boxChinese New Year will be celebrated on January 28 and mark the beginning of the Year of the Fire Rooster, which symbolises an awakening as well as the light of dawn. This is because a rooster’s crowing signals the start of a new day, and hopefully for all of us, a new and exciting year to look forward to.

People born in the Year of the Fire Rooster (1957 and 2017) are generally intelligent and confident, which makes them excellent leaders. However, patience is not a virtue they can boast of. Although some astrologists are of the view that Fire Roosters are ‘born lucky’, others believe that it is their dedicated hard work that enables them to excel in their professional lives.

Fire Roosters have a love for adventure, feel quite comfortable taking risks and have a steely determination to beat the odds. This is primarily why fields such as banking, accounting, debt management and financial planning are considered excellent career choices for them. However, their fiery personalities allow them to charm people with relative ease, which is why the performing arts often prove to be very attractive for people born under this sign. Although all this seems exciting, a word of caution for Fire Roosters. Their natural stubbornness and uncompromising nature is more likely than ever to cause rifts in personal relationships.

Even if you are not a Fire Rooster, this is the year to live on the edge, and pursue dreams you always wanted to, both in your personal and professional lives. It is also an auspicious time to marry, resolve long-standing grievances with friends and family and finally go ahead with that long-term investment decision that you may have been postponing. If Chinese zodiac experts are to be believed, the year is also likely to witness political and economic upheavals across the globe.
