🐓 Shake a tail feather and now wave goodbye to the crazy year of the Yang Fire Monkey – not to be seen again for another sixty years! And hail a hearty welcome to the year of the Yin Red Fire Bird, which begins to crow with the Aquarian New Moon on the 27-28th January at 00:07gmt, 19:07est.
A Fire Bird year can be a controversial and colorful
one with over dramatic scenarios, where the ordinary is given rank of
the extraordinary – and vice versa, depending upon the power of the pecking order in the proverbial chicken coup (i.e. one’s own mind).
The Red Rooster’s organizational abilities are generally stubbornly
applied, although compromise and cooperation would create a greater
sense of union - and harmony, as well create the adulation they desire
and/or deserve for their perfectionism. The challenge in the year of the
loyal and punctual Rooster is to see competition and comparison as
futile and counterproductive to positive personal development,

A natural born confident Fire Rooster knows how
to strut one’s glorious every-day stuff with regal style and strength,
without having to prove one’s authority. Those born in 1957 will truly
resonate with this year’s fiery element. It is, however, a time for
everyone to wake-up and cultivate mindfulness with noble intentions in
all spheres of life, honing skills with precision and awareness, which
others may benefit from.
From a spiritual point of view, this
year of the Fire Bird is one of a phoenix in transformation, possessing

Tibetan Kalachakra Tantra, it is the mighty and mythic Garuda Bird who
is akin to the zodiac sign Aquarius, the group-oriented sign in which
this Chinese New Year starts – which is also the sign of surprises and
amazement. (Please note Tibetan New Year, Losar, begins with the New
Moon Solar Eclipse in Pisces on the 26th of February).
soaring Red Garuda is also a King of outrageousness; he emerged from his
cracked egg fully grown, already perfect in his warrior ways, having
overcome hope and fear in order to experience freedom and spaciousness.
This is year is auspicious for Snake; successful for Ox; happy
for Dragon; entertaining for Goat; and good for Tiger, Monkey and Boar;
a fair one for the Horse; and moderate for the Rooster; while Rabbit
and Rat may be happier in a less provocative role, a Dog’s relation to
the Rooster will depend upon how fiery elements dominate his or her
With love & prayers _/|\_ & even though we
don't really need wings to fly to a higher perspective and get our
clearer view (meditation and dharma will do!), best wishes to one &
Kung Hei Fat Choi!
Happy Chinese New Year of the Fire Bird!
