What the Chinese New Year Means for Your Horoscope
We know you’re used to paying attention to your star sign — but the Chinese New Year, which starts on the 28th of January, has its own system of Astrology to guide you through the next year.
First, a brief history of Chinese Astrology: it’s the oldest astrology system. Legend has it that Buddha threw a party and invited all of the animals. Only 12 came, and he rewarded each of them with a year they would rule. The lesson: never say no to a party, babes! You never know how it could pay off.
Now, each year is ruled by a different one of those animals. That means the year you were born dictates what your Chinese Astrology sign is — and according to legend, that affects everything from your personality to your career. The Chinese calendar is based on the phases of the moon. The signs are cyclical and repeat every twelve years unlike western astrology, which cycles monthly. There are 12 animal symbols, each representing the personality traits and characteristics of the person born that year. So all babies born this year will be fire roosters.
According to Chinese Astrology, people born in the year of the rooster are highly social creatures, who have an undying lust for life. They love adventure and deeply believe in fateful meetings. Lively and outgoing, they conquer everybody’s heart, even if they themselves are careful giving away their own hearts too easily.
Restless roosters are constantly on a mission. They can be naughty but certainly not evil. Roosters have their little mysterious side and never cease to fascinate others. They effortlessly charm the pants off literally anyone. No wonder they are among the most popular signs of the Chinese Zodiac.
2016 was the year of the turbulent monkey. We barely got any rest. It has definitely been a year of mixed emotions. Some of us may have gone absolute bananas. Even though we got a whole lot of work done, most of us kind of got lost in the crazy jungle.
The fire rooster encourages you to be yourself and to take full control of your destiny. Make no apologies for who you are. Stand up and fight for your rights! Power to the People! The fire element will add lots and lots of hot passion. It will be a sizzling year for sex lust and love. Roosters teach us to push our sexual limits and refuse to be confined by society.
Don’t forget that roosters thrive on compliments and love to experiment.
The essence of the rooster year is to be confident and go after your dreams. Individuality is key! Be prepared for pure awesomeness in 2017! Cock-a-doodle-doo!
Here’s what your Chinese astrology sign is, according to your birth year, plus your horoscope for the next year.
