Just be cautious. Fire Rooster is a tricky one. Always remember this is a picky animal, not as unpredictable as the Monkey though.

Happy and solid practice to everyone! :)

The Rooster is the only bird in the Chinese calendar, and at the time the calendar was created, he was not the domestic chicken we know today but a feathered dinosaur, closely related to the dragon -- spectacular, flashy, brilliant yang to the misty, dreamy Chinese dragon's yin.  He is credited with saving the earth in ancient times.  Here's how the legend goes:

 

At one point nine suns gathered together around the earth, and were scorching it with their heat and destroying all the vegetation, so people put their heads together and came up with a plan -- summon the most powerful archers and have them shoot the suns out of the sky.  One of them, forget his name (history retains it), succeeded at the task -- one by one he shot eight suns out of the sky.  No one was going to touch the ninth, since everybody knew that the earth does need a sun -- one sun.  But this ninth sun was so scared as eight of his buddies died in front of him that he hid in the deepest cave and swore to never come out ever again.  The earth was plunged into complete darkness.  

 

People pleaded with the sun, and made promises and begged and cried -- to no avail.  That's when the rooster showed up and said, let me try singing the sun out.  At the time, the rooster had a beautiful singing voice to match his startling appearance.  So he stood at the mouth of the cave and began singing.  

 

The sun was mesmerized by the song, and peeped out a little to see who the singer was.  The rooster stepped aside a bit, still singing, and the sun peeped out some more...  and a bit more...  and you know the rest of the story -- the sun finally got out completely and kept climbing higher and higher to take a better look at the singing rooster.  Since that day, and to this day, the sun always waits  for the rooster to sing the morning song before emerging from his hiding place for every new day to begin.   

 

This year's Rooster is yin, which means a hen.  A Yin Fire Hen, who, obviously, can lay eggs.  This means the year when foundations are laid down for many things that can and will hatch only later, they will stay hidden and dormant for a while -- and then...  surprise surprise...  Not the unpredictable, prank-like Monkey surprise though.  What is laid down is what will hatch.  Sit on an egg that contains a monster, a monster will hatch.  Sit on an egg that contains a miracle...  :)

The Year of the Rooster will begin on January 28, 2017.
 

Celebrations will begin on January 27, New Year's Eve, and typically last around two weeks, making this the longest holiday in the Chinese calendar.
 

This year the festivities are set to end on February 2.
