THE YEAR OF THE ROOSTER

 

I am feisty and forthright

I honor and incorporate control

I exhibit consistency and precision

While maintaining law and order

I am tenacious and persuasive

yet observant and demanding

I am in search of excellence

Never giving in or backing down

I am perceptive and challenging

Equipped to take on responsibility

And fully prepared to conquer

I AM THE ROOSTER

 

The Year of the Rooster

Conflicts, controversy and plenty of debate can be expected during the year of the Rooster. The cocky presence and fearless action will bring about change, whether it’s needed or wanted by the masses. Bear in mind that the Rooster is often compared to Don Quixote, ready to take on any challenge that comes along with a notable strut of confidence and a progressive attitude that is impossible to beat.

This year is perfect for those who strive to reach the ultimate level of life mentally, physically and financially, but not so good for those who favor being lazy or living the life of a couch potato.

Don’t expect coddling during the year of the Rooster. You’ll receive little if none of that. This is a year of condemnation, fault-finding and pointing fingers at those who haven’t lived up to expectations and promises made.

If you lack discipline, you will be criticized and left behind, but if you strive for perfection and accomplishment, anything is possible under the Rooster’s rule.

 

United States Outlook

The United States will need to practice control, striving to obtain the perfect balance between diplomacy and strong-arming any opponents that might want to challenge or take privileges without asking. It will be of utmost importance that strategy supersedes the temptation to act in haste and without the general consensus of superpowers around the world.

Showing excellence and integrity along with compassion and logic will be required during many muddled moments that could result in hasty reactions based on assumptions instead of facts.

A steady hand and willingness to work in unison with the majority will mark the outcome of a year riddled with posturing. It will take strong, savvy leadership to navigate through the challenges that face the world physically and financially.

 

United Kingdom Outlook

The United Kingdom will face its own challenges, but a steady pace to strengthen and bring about positive change is apparent. However, it could still be subjected to homeland security issues, leaving room to be threatened by outside sources trying to undermine this great nation’s intelligence and courage to stand tall and remain united with its allies.

It will be time for the British to use past experience and intelligence to contribute to and bring about a worldwide plea for universal solidarity.

 

Canada Outlook

Canada will strengthen its relationships within the global network of countries fighting for freedom and peace on earth. The contributions made by this nation will set an example on the world platform that will inspire others to follow suit.

The 2017 Fire Rooster year will radiate authority and precision in order to bring about control, however not without plenty of drama to assure his presence is felt on a world level. This is a year where pressure and persuasion will be applied to vie for power, making it necessary to join forces with those who share the same values and environment concerns.
