Your 2017 Asianscope – Rooster Year!

It’s Lunar Year of the Rooster! If you were born in the years below then 2017 is a milestone for you.

You know your regular horoscope but what about your Asianscope? You might assume you have a Chinese sign, but in truth, you actually have an Asian Sign. Asian astrology combines Chinese, Indian, Vietnamese, Korean, Tibetan and Japanese knowledge – all of which evolved at the same time.

The biggest common factor across all these different kinds of Asian astrology is the importance of the number twelve (twelve signs, and also the twelve-year cycle of Jupiter, which in Western Astrology we associate with good fortune.) This ‘rule of twelve’ links Eastern and Western horoscopes in an uncannily accurate way.


This is a Rooster year which corresponds to Mars, Aries and the First House in Western astrology. It’s a year for pushing yourself forward and making your appearance work for you. Roosters ‘crow’ about themselves and dazzle with their feathers. 2017 will reward you if you are prepared to self-promote and use new or old media to push yourself.

Time to be cocky
Time to be loud
Time to get up and atom!
Time to walk your talk
Time to talk your walk
Time to strut and puff yourself up
Time to push back
Time to go head-to-head


How did the astrology across Asia grow?  In the 7th century, the Tibetan Emperor had a Chinese princess for a wife, who brought Chinese astrology books to the court. Today, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama is involved with the Tibetan Medical and Astrological Institute

The institute was founded by the 13th Dalai Lama, in Lhasa in 1916. In the aftermath of the Chinese occupation of Tibet, the 14th Dalai Lama came to India where he reestablished it in 1961.


The idea of twelve animal signs and/or Jupiter cycles can be found across Asia. In Thailand, you can even visit a temple associated with your sign. This information comes from the Thai Guide to Thailand

My own interest in Asian astrology has evolved over the years, working for Marie Claire in South Korea, Elle in South Korea, Vogue in Japan and Cleo in Singapore.  Indian Astrology is known as Vedic, Hindu or Jyotisha.  It also uses twelve signs (though these are Aries, Taurus, Gemini and so on – the same as the West). Jupiter is also part of the Indian system. My own research into Asian astrology and Western astrology shows an uncanny link between the 12 signs in both. It all works together in a mysterious way!



There are some slight differences between the Asian signs.

In Vietnam, the Ox becomes the Water Buffalo and the Rabbit becomes the Cat. In Japan, the Pig becomes the Boar. In Tibet, the Rooster becomes the Bird – yet the essential meaning of the signs does not change. What’s your Asian sign? If you were born in January or February (when the signs change over) you will need to double check here – otherwise it really is as simple as finding your year of birth.

Tibetan astrology combines both Indian and Chinese methods and is the most interesting of all in Asian horoscope work. The Tibetan New Year is around one month later than the Chinese New Year, though celebrations for both overlap, so February 2017 is a very special time. The Tibetan New Year is based on the New Moon nearest to the start of February. It’s called Losar. In 2017 Losar begins on Sunday 26th February/Monday 27th February depending on where you are in the world. We have a New Moon on Sunday in London that day with the Sun and Moon conjunct at 8 degrees of  Pisces in Western Astrology. It is also an Annular Solar Eclipse. This tells us that 2017 will be unforgettable. Historic!


Your Asian sign corresponds to Libra, Venus and the Seventh House in Western astrology. You do best when you are in a partnership or part of a couple. Even if you are single you can work with someone who becomes your other half. Male rats thrive in a bromance. Even if your partnerships are with family members (siblings) you do better as part of ‘two’ than going it alone. This does not mean your partnerships or duets are easy. However, even if you have to part company, it is worth hanging in there, to preserve some kind of relationship.

In 2017 your lesson is to either pursue ‘conscious uncoupling’ like your fellow Rat, Gwyneth Paltrow, or to take an existing partnership and spin it in a new way. Perhaps you are also ready for a new duet or double act, following the departure of the old set-up. If you have not yet considered bringing someone into your life for personal or work reasons, this is the year.



Your sign corresponds to Leo, the Fifth House and the Sun in Western astrology. You have a very special relationship with the ‘heirs’ to your ‘throne’. You do not need to have children in order to have successors! His Holiness the Dalai Lama is a Pig in Asian astrology and he is not a father, but has a Tibetan line of succession. If you do have sons and daughters they will be central to your life. It is also common for Pigs to change their entire destinies, based on just one pregnancy! You may have paid or unpaid work involving children or young people.
In 2017 your lesson is to guide, mentor and set an example to the young. This may be your godchild, niece, nephew, son or daughter. Perhaps you have projects or plans involving younger people born 20+ years after you. You can’t be perfect but you can do your best to inspire and educate those who are your junior and perhaps, also learn from them as well. When in doubt this year look to Millennials or those who are your ‘sons’ or ‘daughters.’


Your sign corresponds to Sagittarius, Jupiter and the Ninth House in Western astrology. You are the natural explorer, adventurer and traveller whose life story involves major questions about leaving your family (or substitute family, like a household) behind, in order to pursue pastures new. You may have to do this repeatedly until you get it right. There is a real message about departure in your Asianscope, either because you have to leave your background, culture or local identity to achieve your goals, or because your ambitions means you simply cannot stay where you were, geographically, culturally or socially. Rather like a real dog, you thrive when you’re roaming. You do best on location!

In 2017 your task is to either return to a holiday or work destination you have loved before, or figure out what it was you got from the last one, so you can plan the next one. You really do need to get out there and firm up the connections you have made – perhaps even in the last few months – with a new pin on the map. You do actually have more freedom than you might think, not just to take a decent vacation, but to set up ties that can only strengthen. It doesn’t have to be foreign; it can be a few hours from where you live – but it’s special.


Your sign corresponds to Aries, Mars and the First House in astrology. You do best when you put your name and face before people and make yourself the story! Sure, you can take other roles in your life, and be someone else’s partner, parent or employee – but actually, as a Rooster you will be happier and more fulfilled if you make yourself heard. Crowing is clever. So is using your portrait or photograph, for whatever reason. We tend to back off from Rooster qualities, because they are associated with ego, or pride – yet actually, once you realise that you are your own best product in life, you’ll find others gravitate.

In 2017, remember that a Rooster year is your best chance in 12 years to hit a crossroads that defines who you are. The best example of this I can give you is the Monkey year of 2016 when Theresa May, a Monkey, woke up to find herself Prime Minister of Great Britain. In other words, fate can take you on a strange journey in ‘your’ year. You’ll have some fascinating choices this year that ask you to put yourself forward and really work with ‘Me.’


Rabbits correspond to Scorpio, Pluto and the Eighth House in western astrology. You are the person who cannot keep the business, the money, the charity or the property out of the relationship! This goes for family or for marriage. When you think about how 1975 Rabbit David Beckham has made his entire clan and marriage an enterprise (even the younger Beckhams are modelling) you can see how this sign works. You were born to pursue quite powerful financial relationships, either deadly serious in nature, or sexually potent. That’s why the contracts between you and family or partners have to be studied very carefully.

Rabbit, this year is your time to figure out the price you put on things you cannot buy. There is that little question of selling your soul, or not selling your soul, to consider! Some fundamental questions about priceless spiritual or soulful ‘gains’ are there in 2017. For example how much does your integrity cost? What about your good name? What about privacy? And ultimately, what does charity really mean to you and does it begin at home?


Your sign relates to Aquarius, Uranus and the Eleventh House in Western astrology. You need your tribe and your tribe needs you. In fact you are defined by the group, but the group would be nothing without you! This might be a network of allies, or your Ladies-In-Waiting. It might be your pack, or your band. Maybe it’s a whole movement, but you are the person who pumps oxygen into it. Sometimes the family is the tribe (sisters who are more like girlfriends in a gang with you) but it’s more common for you to find an ensemble cast or some other network. That’s how you do all your life learning and also your achievement.

You do best in group situations, so pub quizzes or ukulele orchestras – whatever floats your boat. A political party? In 2017 you need to learn that you can be independent, and very much your own person, yet not have to sacrifice friendships or that amazing people-power passion you discover within a little circle of people. The key to understanding yourself this year is to know that you are all different but equal. You all have your part to play. An old group is calling you. Will you go back?


The Ox corresponds to Cancer, the Moon and the Fourth House in western astrology. You are strongly associated with your nationality, accent, culture, history and roots. In a perfect world you would have your own mini country.  You tend to really ‘own’ your houses, land, apartments or business premises and it’s no surprise to hear that Princess Diana and Margaret Thatcher were both born under the Asian sign of the ox. It’s very common for family to play a massive part in your life, and you may involve your brother or parents in your career (for example) or they may necessarily involve you in theirs. One of your major life quests is to find out what patriotism means to you and how much of a patriot you are.

In 2017 it really is time to get a stronger feeling for your homeland and home town and if it’s still not deep and meaningful, it may be time to travel, or even move, so that you can find that sense of connection and belonging your soul craves. There are some major questions this year about where you come from and what you need to do to preserve what or who you cherish there.





Well, last year was your year and you had a huge choice to make – what did you say? Now, you are going into a Rooster year. How will that serve you, considering that you are a Monkey and thus associated with Virgo, the Sixth House and Mercury in western astrology? It might help to remember that nothing can really function in your life, unless you are at peace with your body. You may be a bastion of health and fitness or have real-deal medical issues to live with, but the bottom line with you is that the whole world of food, drink, drugs, healers, doctors, fitness and the rest has to serve you or you can’t serve others.

In 2017 you need to address one of the great Monkey questions, which is the point at which self-care and preventative health measures are the answer, and at which point you have to lean hard on others for help. If there is anything about your daily routine, workload and lifestyle which is getting in the way of what matters to your body, that will have to be addressed – sooner rather than later. It is also possible you will realise that you need a whole new regime, to match what’s going on with work!


You are an interesting person whose Asian sign corresponds to Taurus, Venus and the Second House in western astrology. You have an amazing instinct for what is priceless or precious. There are always questions surrounding you about selling out, or selling your soul, but although you can play games with the world on that level, you are ultimately quite fierce, to the point of being stubborn, about what you’ll put a price on, and what you will walk away from. Often, when you are told what to do, you realise you know better – and in fact are proven right, especially in terms of making or saving money!

In 2017 you will either deepen your commitment to the non-profits and charities you are already involved with, or find a new cause you can pour yourself into. There are always going to be questions about what is safe or not safe for you, especially in terms of your work, or the politics around you – but you have to stick to your principles and only get involved with pouring your time, energy (and perhaps your money) into something that’s utterly right.


Your Asian sign corresponds to Capricorn, Saturn and the Tenth House in western astrology. Your total commitment to your own success or status is pretty remarkable, as I’m sure your friends have seen! You can start off in a fairly humble or ordinary way and go, step by step, to the highest peak. That is part of what your horse birthright is, and of course the horse is the creature we associate with scaling the mountain, step by careful step, until the top is reached.

In 2017 your challenge is to stay at the top, or go higher, without being accused of social climbing or deliberate targeting of people who are useful to you. That’s a bit of a vulnerable point with you, because as far as you’re concerned, you’re just being yourself! However – it is also true that you know how to work a situation and you need to take care that you are still pursuing particular people or opportunities for their own merits rather than as part of some massively ambitious plan. You also need to mark your dance cards this year – choose who you are going to dance with and why. Again this comes down to your soul, not your need to be ‘successful.’


Your Asian sign relates to Gemini, Mercury and the Third House in western astrology. You are the person whose way with words really hits home. You know what to say, how to say it and how to ‘sell’ it to people, especially on Twitter. You have a natural gift for writing, singing or public speaking. I am sure you know the snake is associated with its famous hiss and forked tongue. In fact, the snake does a great deal of its work through its mouth! Symbolically, your sign is about communication on all levels, across languages, gender and age. You know how to reach people and you can get your message across, no matter what.

In 2017 your quest is to find a new way to sell an old message, or to discover that you are altering your 2016 plan, project or idea and adapting to new circumstances. The worldwide web is evolving so rapidly that you do need to keep completely up to date with what is happening on YouTube and Twitter, not to mention Instagram, Pinterest and the rest. Somewhere in that ‘noise’ you have to find the communication field that works for you. Never has your gift for reaching people been more important than it is in 2017.


Your sign corresponds with Pisces, Neptune and the Twelfth House in western astrology. You are naturally reclusive and very sensibly so! You were really born for a big coat with a turned-up collar. Dragons are very hard to know, although everyone thinks they have a ‘connection’ – that is because you have an uncanny ability to feed into other people’s auras with your own. The truth is, though, nobody really gets you, except you. Just as important to you, is your vision, your imagination or your high ideals. You hold a picture in your mind of how things should be – then make it happen. Dragons have the ability to turn the non-real, not-real and unreal into real!

In 2017 your greatest challenge and reward will be to take an incredible idea and to work hard to turn it into something that will be around for years to come. It might be an architectural design for a new home. It may be a great theatre concept. You will be given the tools, resources and people you need, as well as the timing, but so much depends on the nitty-gritty of hard work. You have to convince those around you that this picture in your head genuinely does have what it takes to … take off!

Hi Jessica,

I am in a career where I just take orders, though I don’t like it. At home as I’m the only female, I have the upper hand and I’m very happy that way. I have been thinking of starting something on my own since a long time, but the right money, place and partner is missing. To have it all alone, it’s going to be impossible anytime soon.
Please tell me what I need to be doing in this rooster year.


Happy new year to you Jessica x I cannot leave my message for you in the forum ( it happened since 4 , 5 months ago ) So I try my luck to catch you here . Please let me go straight to the topic. I have a massive week next week start on Monday 30 , 3 days in the role with courts , legal matters, custody children, THEN a property about to settlement while I am totally financially not ready for it. Clearly I’m being puunished for what I have done under Saturn. Everything is “upside down” you… Read more »
Hello Jessica, thank you again for this very inspiring article and a happy Asian year! The last 2 years have been very chaotic (Pluto on IC): unemployed and back living at my parents’. I am a rooster and I can feel I have hit a crossroads. I have decided to move in February but I don’t know if I should go back to London and start from scratch again or move to the south of France (Marseille) for a brand new start. I have to make the right decision as I feel I won’t have a second chance. Any advice… Read more »

Dear Jessica,

I am seeing a big promotion soon but it comes with huge responsibilities, but there is lot of back stabbing from colleagues.
Also I am bit confused of joining forces with someone who means a lot to me. I was born in the year of Horse.
Please tell me if this year is good for me in terms of career as well as relationships.


I’m a Tiger, sun sign Libra with also many placements in Sagittarius followed by Scorpio. I’m wondering if this year will be finally be the year I will reconcile with a friend who means a lot to me-we haven’t spoken in near 7 years. He is a Taurus and Asian sign of Sheep/Goat.

Dear Jessica, Thank you for your interesting and skilled look at Asian and Chinese astrology. I do feel we are all a blend of all and being a Monkey I was keen to see how the Rooster (or Phoenix if you really shedding a skin) will guide me in 2017. I have had a revolution since my last job ended in December and I refuse to go back into someone else’s office to work under neon lights and the secretarial world. I am starting a new job on Monday 30th January completely different for me, and yes it is as… Read more »

HI Jessica,

After a really lousy spell of bad luck – Saturn Return that left me reeling, Uranus knocking me further sideways, etc. – I’m hoping for even the humblest of upturns!

I’m a Fire Rooster with a fiery Western chart…any elucidation would be most appreciated.


All the best,

Hi Jessica, thanks for the 2017 Asianscope it goes very nicely with your other 2017 forecast ! As a rabbit, I almost choked on my coffee when reading the part when you say that business and relationships are closely intertwined ! My husband and I are partners in love and in business and we are both very happy like this ! We have been having a pretty hard financial time in the last 7 years but we are re-viewing and re-thinking things (we are in retail and e-shop). I am learning (finally) about how to manage our finances to put… Read more »

Hi Jessica, I am slightly weary of the Year of the Rooster: as a Virgo/Horse, I really hate bragging and showing off. Whilst Trump is going to love 2017 it seems, is this going to be a very uncomfortable year for me? I would rather be prepared and go away to hibernate until 1918 – oops, I meant 2018. :)

Dear Jessica, I’m stuck in a job I absolutely hate. My bosses LOVE me but my colleagues hate me where I’m singled out as the witch and it’s making me so miserable. January has been emotionally intense!! – I have sun in aries and ascendant in pisces and I’m a water dog. I made a business contact last autumn when I travelled to Asia to join that company but have not heard back since October. I’m not sure if there’s any possibility there. Can you please tell me how this Rooster year will affect me. And with the lunar and… Read more »

Hi Jessica

I was wondering about the new Moon in Aquarius and what if anything it might hold for mevas a Dragon. I have my natal moon at 9 Aquarius along with Ceres at 1.

Recently I’ve been thinking a lot about reconnecting with my father’s roots in the Hebrides. I have family there. I’m wondering what the pull is for me and if there might be something there for me.

Dear Jessica, awesome report, loved it :) I have one theoretical question that I can only ask you. I’m a Rooster, and loved your analysis. In it you mention that a Chinese Rooster corresponds to the Aries zodiac traditionally. So, my question is, how will the Chinese year of the Rooster (which is linked to Aries) interplay with our Jupiter in Libra transit this 2017 on a large-scale? Are there any patterns you can spot or predictions you can see? Merci xx

Dear Jessica I am a Rooster and Capricorn although birth time unknown, other than ‘after lunch’. The past few years have been enormously challenging, a divorce in 2008, move back to the UK for financial reasons having lived in Australia for 11 years because of the mining downturn and last year (as it was for many people) was perhaps my ‘annus horribilis’. A long-distance relationship with a previous colleague (Pisces/Monkey) turned sour after it became evident he’d been leading a double life. He had fed me a heap of lies and false promises and then made lies up about me… Read more »
Dearest Jessica, I really value your insights, so would be most grateful for your thoughts on my current situation. After 10 years of working for a very controlling boss, I have handed in my notice in December – I am now regretting the decision to leave and wish had worked harder to find an alternative path within the organisation … it’s still a possibility as I am very good at my job, but worried that I may have burnt my bridges. If not, I intend to focus my energies on a business my husband (10th may 1975) have grown on… Read more »

Hi Jessica
Thanks for the post on Chinese astrology – I’ve always been interested in both Western and Chinese astrology but I don’t think I’ve found reports on both from the same astrologer before. My mum does my astrology and has indicated that something significant should happen in October of this year with my career – I was wondering whether you can see the same thing in my Chinese astrology? I’m the Earth Horse. I feel like I’ve lost my confidence at the moment and that others around me can sense this. Much appreciated.

Hi Jessica,

Happy new year to you.
Being a monkey [putting 2016 as the worst year historically], it’s inherently accurate about the body and daily routine, a new regime is sorely needed, clearly not working with extreme insomnia and chronic illness to name a few.
Jupiter in Scorpio can’t come soon enough, added to the domestic and family issues, power battles needing litigious correction, feel as though the universe is hindering or just delaying the process, hard to tell, your advice as always is greatly appreciated.
Thank You

Hi Jessica happy Chinese new year!!
I am a dragon and your description fits me i do turn the vision in my head into reality.
I have launched a new passive income and building my brand/business too.
Am taking small steps into dating too.
In these two area’s (and anything else that shows up) what will the new Rooster year show for me? please.

Dear Jessica,
My animal sign is Horse; sun in Aquarius; moon in Gem and rising in Sag. What vocation should I pursue? Thanks very much!


Hi, Jessica,

What I can expect in my career position? I have a feeling that something going on behind my back and I just want to protect myself and my family. Will I find a new job and when? I’m a horse. Thanks.

Dear Jessica, Thank you for your interest in Chinascopes! As I am based in the Far East, I do refer to practitioners of Chinese astrology as well Western astrology. I find it frustrating, however, that the interpretation of Chinese astrology here seems to be stuck in the times when people were living in traditional agrarian societies. I really respect the modern and feminist approach and interpretation you bring to astrology and was wondering if you could help me with one pressing issue that has been concerning me. I am a metal Monkey and in Chinese astrology, I have an empty… Read more »

Hi Jessica, Happy Lunar New Year to you! I just have one quick question.
I have 6 aspects in Sagg and 5 in Scorpio and am a Water Ox. The past three years have been, and still are torturous with Saturn. With so many aspects in Sagg and Scorpio, am I experiencing a double whammy( 2014/2015/2016/2017) of Saturn or is it just my imagination? Also should I read both signs when reading my Horoscopes?
Any enlightenment would be greatly appreciated.

Jessica, I’m an Earth Horse and a victim of unfavourable circumstances at the work place in 2016. I’ll be looking for a new and BETTER employer this year. Do you see this working beautifully? Thanks! xo


Hi Jessica I was born 30.7.1965 so understand that was the year of the snake. My husband is a rat … well, not literally !! We have been in some turmoil for a few years with relocating back to our home country , now we are here things still don’t feel right. I have always been a stay at home mum, working part-time intermittently but always moving because of his career. I am now 51 and feel like the best has happened for us, which sounds more bleak than it’s meant to. But where do we go from here to… Read more »

Hi Jessica,

I’m a Pisces, Gemini rising and Wood Snake. Two issues for me: I’ve relocated in the last year, but am being dogged by feelings of making a mistake by moving, or have moved to the wrong place.

Secondly, even though I’m older, I’ve never had a real relationship. Something I’ve longed for my entire life. I’m to the point of apoplectic about it now and sad.

Welp, that shouldn’t be hard, lol. Thanks in advance for your thoughts.


Hi Jessica,
I’m a Goat who is sick and unemployed. This started in the year of the Goat when Uranus transit was in the 1st house. The South Node was conjunct my natal Saturn and conjunct my natal Diana. Thank you for opening our eyes to asteroids.
I feel stuck and need to move.. I Things keep shattering around me, breaking. Can you please advise?

Happy new year Jessica! I am a metal ox, sun in libra, ascendant in virgo. The past 2 years have been tireing. I’ve decided to move this year. Don’t like the appartement were I am right now. To much gossiping. I don’t know if I should move in an another section of the city I am . I haven’t been working for many years and I’m thinking if I should start my own business or work as an employe for some company. As for my love life, I was with a FFF man. Too much misunderstanding. I called it quits.… Read more »

Hi Jessica,

I’m a premium member and also purchased the 2017 report. But have no idea how to access the forums. I don’t see a link up on the menu either. I sent a ‘Help’ request already but haven’t heard back. Can you send me a link on where to access the forums?

Thx a bunch!

Jessica, somehow you manage to post the most interesting articles! This is the first I have read an asianscope…I have looked at chinese zodiacs signs before and being a Metal Dog your perspective is different but also enlightening. Usually for the dog all anyone writes is loyal, steadfast, blah, blah. Too an extent , yes. But when you say we like to roam that made a lot of sense. This was the Sag connection I was looking for. So now I am curious as to how 2017 will turn out for me. I read the section on dog again and… Read more »
Dear Jessica I remember you writing that the new year really does not begin until February and I am beginning to feel this myself. Yesterday I was made an offer for a collaboration regarding work ( I have been virtually unemployed for the last 4 years due to my child’s health issues) I am really going to have to get back into gainful employment and I need to give this person a definite answer soon. If I decide to take her up on it will involve a commitment. She is a colleague and a friend and I really do not… Read more »

Hi Jessica
I have been following your astrology advice for quite a number of years now and have found it very helpful.
April 2015 i left my marriage of 23 years and things did not go well but i found an inner strength i didnt know i had.
Now im with someone who feels like my true soul the only thing is we are living where we both would love to leave and start our new life together a fresh.
Can you see any big changes in my chart
Many thanks

Hi Jessica,

Just reading this, and also my weekly horoscope which included this:

Wednesday 1st February
Mercury 21 Capricorn conjunct Cupido 21 Capricorn
Friday 3rd February
Juno enters Capricorn
Sunday 5th February
Pluto 18 Capricorn conjunct Panacea 18 Capricorn

I have Salacia 21 Capricorn, and I have Pluto 17 Virgo, Uranus 18 Virgo, Chiron 18 Pisces and Ceres 18 Pisces.

I hope this opens the way for a new and better paid work opportunity for me.


Hello Jessica,
According to Chinese Astrology 2017 is going to be an unlucky year for me as I am a Fire Rooster! After reading this I feel incredibly depressed and cannot shake it off. I have a constant feeling of dread. Life has been at times very difficult for a number of years especially regarding housing matters and my husbands work situation. Just as I was beginning to feel we are over the worst I read the Chinese Horoscopes! Can you shed any light for me? x

Hi Jessica, I read with great interest and joy your reading for Dogs this year. As a Capricorn dog (jan 18 1959 08.58 am) I have been not been fully well over the last few years I have been yearning to leave the UK, but have deliberated over where to go. We have spoken before, and I referred to Los Angeles where I was so much at home, but my budgets are constrained. You have been so helpful in the past, would you have any advice for me please?

Hi Jessica,

Thanks for another wonderful post. My Asianscope sign is Tiger. Are you able to clarify the meaning of “An old group is calling you. Will you go back?”

Thanks for your help.

Hi Jessica! Thank you for another great article. I am excited because this year falls in my sign of the Rooster. I can relate to the sign to be loud and cocky, and self promoting in order to be successful this year but it’s difficult because it’s totally not my nature to do so. Lately, it almost feels as if I am supposed (being pushed) to do those things and the more I feel it the more uncomfortable it’s becoming. It’s like am constantly fighting myself. I have been feeling optimistic for months about my future in work and personal,… Read more »
Hi Jessica, i have just had the most stressful beginning to the new Asian year…my partner is giving me the cold shoulder and is always snappy at me and putting me down. I feel like I am ‘doing’ every little detail of the family’s daily routine on my own and I am trying to complete a long term study course, whilst managing the daily load (which is a lot as we have a lot of children!). I am feeling very stressed and overwhelmed. I genuinely feel like I have no support from anyone anymore. Is this the start of a… Read more »
Hi Jessica I’m in a quandary about where to live and I know from your readings this is relevant to my sign right now. I moved three years ago to live my parents so they could help out with my young daughter. (Single parent, no involvement from her dad.) Three years later I am still here with my parents and although they are wonderful, feel a bit trapped. Do I return to the north where I have friends, but no family or do I stay here and keep trying to rebuild my life? I feel isolated here, but worry about… Read more »

Hi Jessica, loved the article. I’m a Horse (Libra Sun) and am currently in the process of writing a book whilst working a consulting job to pay the bills. Unfortunately the day job in corporate America hasn’t been giving me as much time as I hoped to focus on my creative ambitions. Do you see any changes coming up in 2017 that would give me more time flexibility whilst keeping me fiscally responsible?! Also is this a good year to start seeking out potential publishers/agents? All the best, Victoria

Hi Jessica, my sun sign is leo with ascendant in Capricorn, born in the year of 1968 Monkey. My mother passed away last year and my only child will be 18 this march, she is my only family now. My mother helped me dedicate the past 18 yrs to raising my daughter rather than me working towards a career. Mum was incrediably ill with cancer for the last 2 years of her life. I cared for her full time as well as for my daughter who has a serous cardiac condition. Now that mum has passed over and my daughter… Read more »

Dear Jessica, thank you so very much for your reply :). I searched the net last night and found your writings on Saturn in the sixth house. I found it very beneficial and fascinating !! Thank you once again for my quest in finding direction. Kind Regards, Roshelle

Hi Jessica- I’ve always thought that the western sign counterpart for the year of the horses is the sign of the gemini. Have I been wrong all along? — I picket this up from a sleuth of books i’ve read throughout the years. Please advise!

dear Jessica I find your website really fascinating. I occasionally read one or two messages people write to you but today, as I was just about to leave this page, I found my cursor had stopped on a message Annie wrote to you on 30 January – I was amazed when I read it as I too have been reading the Chinese warning to Rooster fire people for this year. My daughter is one and I had been quite worried about it. I have not told her but did say she should wear something red everyday and also try and… Read more »

Hi Jessica,
I am born in the year of Rat and have been a Long-term relationship with someone born in the year of rooster (1969). 2017 has started really tough for me. And I keep breaking down each day, feeling utterly alone and depressed.
I stumbled on your website this morning, hoping to get a signal or advice from astrological sources. Can you please help me and advise where do I go from where I have reached in life? The Rooster in my life has shut me out.
Thank you,

Dear Jessica After many years of struggling, responsibility and disappointment, I decided to ‘reinvent’ myself. First I got rid of my old married name, then I had a little cosmetic surgery, then I started a ‘get fit’ plan. The results so far have been great but one of my other main goals is to find my life partner/husband, things have plateaud at this moment, but I have yet to go ”looking” for that person. Many yrs ago someone spontaneously did a psychic reading and said that there was a man with either blonde/grey hair who was widowed/divorced and on his… Read more »
