Fire Rooster 2017

2017 Year of the Yin FIre Rooster.
Symbolized by fire sitting on metal, a destructive, fighting relationship.

KEYWORDS: Nervous Tension, Unstable, Disharmony, Conflict, Thrifty. Innovative, Confident, Opportunity, Transformation, Dramatic. Male Domination.

2017 World In General:

EAST - SE, East, NE, North:
Opportunity, success, creativity, prestige, romance.

WEST - South, SW, West, NW:
Danger, theft, violence, anger, sickness.

NOTE: South is a very bad direction in 2017, avoid, use caution. Place heavy metal, remove earth objects, NO FLAMES or red colors.

Politics - World Stage:
Nervous Tension - dramatic conflict, false flag attacks, shootings, bombings, explosions and louder, escalating war drums.

1) USA and Israel push for war with Iran and Russia.
2) Racism and xenophobia may boil over across the USA with no resolution other than martial law - too much anger and hostile energy 2017.
3) Western European countries are walking on thin ice politically, facing change, further disruption and fallout.
4) Russia will remain calm and peaceful despite continued provocation just as long as the USA/UK/Israel spit only words and not bullets. Eastern countries are prosperous this year, but the presence of the Three Killings cannot be overlooked if triggered, then all bets are off.
5) China continues gathering power from buying up Western real estate, corporations, Bitcoin and environmental projects, but may sustain hits from natural disasters.
6) N. Korea will continue to behave badly, knowing that China is on their side who uses them as a buffer against S.Korea and US military bases, as much as N.Korea needs China for trade.

Economy, Finances and Stock Market
s hold well until the end of summer/August when factors indicate negative decline and very dramatic change. Be careful with real estate. Be cautious and thrifty all year. Be prepared, and take action to protect your finances before the Autumn arrives. Optimism is an illusion, enjoy it while it lasts.

Technology 2017 is moving at the speed of light, serious transformation and innovation - Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence, SMART cities, Robots taking over every job possible, Drones becoming more common place, Surveillance of population expanding rapidly. There is minimal to zero cyber-security, and hacking of both personal and corporate information will increase, often for ransom. Between now and 2025, expect unimaginable changes.

Lungs are more vulnerable to flu viruses. Back bones and neck are vulnerable to fractures. Eye injuries. Skin problems. Knive and firearm injuries more likely. Dental problems more common. Heart attacks, hypertension and strokes more likely. Very favourable year for weight loss combined with exercise and healthy diet.

Disasters: Serious events, explosions, fire tragedies, water related disasters and tsunamis, possible nuclear accidents - planes, trains and cars are highly vulnerable. West coast of America has serious possibility for the overdue big earthquake (stay aware in May), as well as increased larger earthquakes worldwide. Southern, SW, central areas, regions and continents are targets - Mother earth will not be kind.

March portends fire disaster and explosions, which repeats January 2018 - serious clash between fire and water.

Female energy was strong in 2016 but 2017 is not good. Women must watch out and protect themselves from abuse, violence, infidelity and betrayal.

Male energy continues to lean towards anger, and nervous energy. Focus on staying healthy and calm, immune system is vulnerable.

Relationships will flourish for some (Monkey, Rat and Dragon), but for many others relationships/friendships will be tested or end.

Children's safety and well-being will continue to be in danger thru 2024.

WATER 2017:
Outdoor water for 2017 remains best in EAST - pool, jacuzzi or fountain. NO water feature in NE until 2024.

Indoor water features (Yang moving water), such as fountain or aquarium?
1) A water fountain is a good enhancement placed in the Center to activate water star.
2) May place moving water in the SW to suppress the bad metal 7. Be sure the aquarium or fountain lives on the left side of the home/front door (the green dragon) and not the right side of the home/front door (the white tiger).
3) A table fountain in the East may enhances the 8 star.

a) Yin water is motionless (vase), Yang water is moving (fountain, aquarium).
b) Kitchens, bathrooms and laundry rooms represent draining water, not generating water such as a fountain or aquarium.

c) Never place aquarium in kitchen, bedroom or bathroom, center or the South. Never place in Grand Duke's section - West 2017.

plant TIPS for Feng Shui 2017:

1) Color of the year is blue
, especially important for female protection from SW violent metal star.
Fire Rooster favours gold over silver.

2) Water
element is important as it tones down metal energy - but clashes with fire element which is subdued by water. Keep all water fresh and sparkling clean to prevent misfortune and affairs. If water features in home (fountain, aquarium) prove to be discordant, simply remove them or try a different location.

3) If your front door is located in the South, SW, NW or West, place a pair of Fu Dogs there as protective guardians against all negative energies.

4) Salt water cures may be used in the NW (2 star) and the South (5 star) this year 2017. A super clean bowl of undisturbed water may be used instead, but the water must be changed often, left undisturbed, and remain clean and clear.

5) Anyone that has a dragon and phoenix statue or image, may try placement it in the East or Center for 2017. Avoid South, SW, NW or West.


Wealth, success, prosperity, happiness, family - NE 4 Romance, study, creativity.
Opportunity - North 6 Career benefactors - SE 9 Growth, celebration, joy.

South 5
Severe misfortune - NW 2 Nagging illness, accidents, money challenges, male energy.
SW 7
Violence, robbery, abuse, deceit, loss, scandal, female energy - WEST 3 Nasty conflict, hostility, short temper, lawsuits.


a) If you believe indoor water features appear to be having a negative effect, remove it.
b) If any section appears negative, re-evaluate - tone down, remove object, or add/change to other elements/colors.
c) If you know how, check the natal flying star birth chart of your home, for conflict with annual visiting flying stars.

FYI Elements and Colors:

1) You absolutely do NOT have to buy strange Asian objects to activate or remedy your home - simply use the elements/objects you already have. However, having said that, there are five Asian objects we recommend which can be used every year - just remember that objects are as powerful as the energy you believe them to have.

Metal Pagoda - Rhino/Elephant - 6 Rod Wind Chime
- Metal Gourd (Wu Lou) - Pi Yao.

a) The Five Element Metal Pagoda - to protect against the nasty 5 earth star - 2017 in South.
b) A blue rhino and blue elephant - to protect against the 7 metal violence and robbery star - 2017 in SW.
c) 6 rod metal outdoor wind chime - to protect against the 2 earth illness star and the nasty 5 earth star - 2017 NW and South.
d) Metal gourd, known as a Wu Lou, which protects against the 2 earth illness star - 2017 in NW. A second Wu Lou may be placed in South.
e) Pi Yao for protection - treat him as a pet and place him West facing East in 2017 - if you have two Pi Yao, place the other in East facing West.

Every year - which begins in February - cleanse your objects by washing them in cold, salt water, and then allow them to dry in the sun for a few hours. Then, place the objects in the appropriate area for the new feng shui year.

2) Elements are stronger than colors - e.g. water is stronger than color blue, fire is stronger than color red, etc.
3) Be careful using fire and water elements! - they are very powerful energies and if placed incorrectly will block your intentions or create havoc.
4) For colors, use rugs, throws, towels, curtains, cushions, bedding, candles, lampshades, etc.
5) NO water in bedrooms ever! - including fountains, aquariums, water scenes, etc.
6) No fire/candles in NW ever!

How to neutralize or activate element energy.

Creative Energy Flow:

WATER feeds WOOD feeds FIRE creates EARTH creates METAL supports WATER etc

Best Choice to SUPPRESS Hostile Energy Combinations:
