Well, the Year of the Monkey is over, and I hardly got around to telling you about any monkeys, and now it's already the Year of the Rooster.  I keep resolving to do better, but my problem is with Mom, who keeps hogging the computer to do her silly eBay selling and Facebook and stuff like that.  Or else she wants to watch TV all evening, when she should be helping me write my blog.  I think I may have to nip her on the ankle to get her properly motivated!

So here we are in the Year of the Rooster, and not only that, but it's a Fire Rooster year.  The same combination of sign and element only occurs once every 60 years.  Famous Fire Rooster people who will turn 60 this year include Dawn French, Donny Osmond, Martin Luther King III, Stephen Fry, Hans Zimmer, Dolph Lundgren, and Jools Holland. I don't know who some of those people are, but if they like dogs, I totally approve of them!


Rooster people can be counted on to keep their promises.  They are honest, loyal, warmhearted, and make good friends. Because they are talkative, they like social events, and are often the center of attention.  On the negative side, Roosters can be vain and boastful and expect other people to listen to them talk about all their accomplishments.  The fact that they constantly seek the attention of those around them can be annoying at times.

Generally, people born in a Rooster year are healthy, and they enjoy sports.  They don't get sick often, and when they do, they recover quickly.  Sometimes they can feel stressed and moody, though.


Apparently, people with the same sign that's being celebrated in any particular year are always likely to be unlucky during that year.  So Rooster folks need to be especially careful about their money and their health in 2017.  When it comes to romance, those who are truly in love should go ahead and get married.  Those who are in dead-end relationships should think about breaking up.  Roosters make the best matches with people from Ox and Snake years.  They should avoid Rat, Rabbit, Horse, Rooster, and Dog.


Roosters consider their careers to be a priority. They are hardworking, resourceful, ambitious, and multi-talented.  Good career choices include:  newsreader, sales person, restaurant owner, hairdresser, public relations officer, farmer, athlete, teacher, waiter, journalist, travel writer, dentist, surgeon, soldier, fireman, security guard, or police officer.

This Year of the Rooster will be a powerful one.  Everyone should have clear intentions regarding love, money, and business.  Avoid risky ventures and ensure success by using practical and well-proven paths.  All Zodiac signs can find rewards by tapping into Rooster traits such as loyalty, commitment, hard work, and family values.

And now I would just like to add my personal opinion about the Year of the Rooster, and here it is:  Why do roosters get a year, but hens don't?  In my opinion this is extremely sexist.  Of course, as usual, nobody asked my opinion!
