Students Welcome New Year In Changchun
CHANGCHUN, CHINA – DECEMBER 26: A rooster image, 30 meters in length, is seen on a snow-covered basketball groud at Changchun Guanghua University on December 26, 2016 in Changchun, China. Two teachers and 30 students spent five hours making the image. 2017 is the Lunar Year of the Rooster in China. (Photo by VCG/VCG via Getty Images)

The  Fire Rooster is a real strutter, loudly crowing his high position in the barnyard, who wants to be master of all he surveys and doesn’t care what anyone thinks. Is it the Year of the Rooster or the Year of the Donald. The timing couldn’t be more appropriate. Really, we  certainly living in interesting times.

From the Metaphysical Zone website

“Under the influence of the Fire element, he (the Fire Rooster) may be a shooting star. He is vigorous, highly motivated and authoritative, able to operate independently, with great precision and skill, although he can also be temperamental, over-dramatic and nervous at times. He is strongly principled and single-minded in his pursuit of success, displaying above average managerial skills. Diligent and intense, he abides fanatically by his own views, conducting his own research, unmoved and unswayed by the opinions or feelings of others.

China doesn’t miss a trick, with this statue of the Trooster adorning a mall in Taiyuan and this image of a blond pheasant doing the rounds.


Stock up on long life noodles. It’s going to be a bumpy ride.
