Gung Hey Fat Choy!
Today is the Lunar New Year, so welcome to the Year of the Rooster, everyone! Gung hey fat choy!
What can we expect in a Rooster Year? According to Susan Levitt and Jean Tang in Taoist Astrology, the Year of the Rooster is:
. . . a time of practical endeavors, conscientiousness, hard work, and discipline. Politically conservative police states gain power, and law and order are championed.
Because I was born in 1957, my astrological sign is Rooster too! Hopefully, that should mean 2017 will be an especially good and benevolent year for me. Hey, any other Roosters out there?
