©Po Ping Lo 2017 Year of the Rooster
Every year my friend Po Ping Lo does a gorgeous rendition of that year’s Chinese New Year symbol and graciously allows me to post her art work here. This year CNY begins on January 28, 2017 and is the Year of the Rooster. Thank you, Po!
2017 is a fire rooster year. Prepare for it by strengthening your personal appearance, embracing the rooster values of loyalty, commitment, and family values. You will be challenged to be very precise about your belief systems, your intentions for your love & relationships must be crystal clear, and you should be ready to fend off shady characters who will appear as tricksters in business, finance, and the internet. In other words, be a good rooster and watch all your chickens!
As a feng shui consultant, I appreciate the symbols of love that Valentine’s Day surrounds us with. Hearts, hearts, and more hearts! I’d like to encourage my readers to remember that LOVE is essential to all beings on this planet. Be kind to your neighbors and your neighbors’ pets. Cherish your mom and your sister as much as your spouse. Valentine’s Day does not have to be for couples only. Spread loving kindness wherever you go and it will come back to you multiplied.
