2017 FIRE PHOENIX YEAR
Phoenix year begins on January 27, 2017 on the new Moon in Aquarius at 4:07 pm PST. Chinese New Year is the the second new Moon after Winter Solstice. Some translations refer to 2017 as Rooster year or Chicken year, but I use the translation Phoenix because it brings opportunities for rebirth and transformation. Phoenix year is fortunate for all Phoenixes, and for Phoenix’s friends Ox, Snake, and Dragon. Phoenix energy can, at times, be challenging for Rabbit. Phoenix correlates to the Western sign Virgo.
The Way of the Phoenix
Phoenix is a brilliant, inspirational, and fearless visionary. The element Fire is perfect for Phoenix because Fire brings strength, passion, bravery, and leadership. So now is the year to break free, claim your destiny, and overcome obstacles. You can heal past actions, even past lives, with your new awareness.
Success in Phoenix Year
Three tips for success are:
First, pay attention to your health. This is the year to exercise, get in shape, and eat well. If you are exhausted after Fire Monkey 2016, then 2017 is especially your year to focus on health and healing.
Bad back for years, not seen a dentist, really want to lose weight, or any type of delay in dealing with your health? This is the year to finally address health issues, and not let health challenges drag on.
Second is to organize your finances. Deal with any debt, plan and budget, and be aware of your spending. Those born in Phoenix year are naturally very good at accounting, can find a bargain, and appreciate thrift as do Phoenix’s best friends Ox and Snake.
Third is to work hard with focus. 2017 is the year to apply yourself in your career. This is not the time to goof off or take your job for granted. Phoenix year is work before play so get organized and contribute on the job. For some, it may feel like beak to the grindstone with superiors criticizing or micromanaging. But stay strong and do the work! Excuses will not be tolerated in a no-nonsense Phoenix year.
Those born in Phoenix years (1909, 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017) are sharp people who are blessed with keen judgement and quick wit. A clear thinker who benefits from higher knowledge, Phoenix can be an outstanding scholar. Phoenix is naturally curious and enjoys intellectual exchange. Phoenix is popular, outspoken, and well liked so often has a flock of admirers.
Phoenix is very resourceful and can be thrown into any situation and on a moment’s notice and emerge a winner. Others seek Phoenix’s advice because Phoenix perceptions are unique, and Phoenix is a creative problem solver.
In matters of romance, Phoenix is serious and loyal. Phoenix is naturally honest, with a frank style of communication that does not sugar coat the truth. But Phoenix might be a teller of tall tales or embellish a story to make a point.
Loving and bonded in relationships but independent at work, it’s usually best that a Phoenix run their own business. If mystically inclined, Phoenix can develop prophetic abilities to become like the rare Phoenix, the mythical bird that symbolizes transformation, beauty, and grace. Phoenix can magically arise from the ashes to create a new life. So do not allow critical thinking or procrastination stop you.
Of the five Taoist elements Fire, Earth, Metal, Water,and Wood, this is the year of the Fire Phoenix. Red means go!
Fire brings passion, creativity, and joy. Fire types are strong, dynamic, and can overcome illness and obstacles. Just be aware that Fire can be very enthusiastic (like Wood) so do not take on more responsibilities than you can handle, especially in autumn.
In Phoenix year, activities are more successful when undertaken during hours that are favorable for Phoenix: Phoenix, Ox, Snake, and Dragon hours.
Phoenix hours are 5 – 7 pm
Ox hours are 1 – 3 am
Snake hours are 9 – 11 am
Dragon hours are 7 – 9 am
Chinese New Year Date
Chinese New Year is a spring festival that begins on the second new Moon after Winter Solstice. But in the Solar Terms Chinese agricultural calendar, the Chinese New Year begins on February 4 or 5. This Li Chun date, based on Solar Terms (15 degrees along the ecliptic) is close to February 2nd, a date that marks the point between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox.
