We’re moving from the Year of the Fire Monkey in 2016 into the Fire Rooster in 2017. It’s going to be another powerful year.
How and what that means to you depends on different factors. For example, in Chinese Astrology, the Fire Rooster is considered the most powerful of all the 60 pillars.
Last week, in preparation for my upcoming annual Feng Shui and Astrology Forecast workshop, I spent some time researching about the upcoming Year of the Fire Rooster and Chinese New Year. There are lots of online articles out there on the subject and I found one with teachings from Dato Joey Yap. (Joey has been one of my Feng Shui teachers)
Here are the highlights of the article I read (from Eliza H)

Thank you Joey for such a detailed explanation.
Of course, there is much more to it – as it depends on the overall energy of your home in the first place. Places with overall good Feng Shui will always be more stable.
But… what creates good Feng Shui? Always good external and internal forms.
And… what are good forms? External forms are the exterior environment outside the home or business and internal forms are the building design and layout itself.
There’s a lifetime of things to fully understand and learn about Feng Shui. And if you’ve made it this far down the page, I should ask… do you want to learn more?
