The Chinese zodiac animal of 2017 
Chinese culture and tradition states that 2017 is the 'Year of the Rooster' and the Nature Conservancy of Canada has this to say about this bird: "To attract mates, roosters do a dance called 'tidbitting', which involves making noises and moving their heads up and down".   More esoterically perhaps, the Rooster is the tenth symbol of the reoccurring 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac.   It is also the only bird included in the Chinese zodiac.   In Chinese astrology, zodiac years are associated with an animal sign, plus one of the five elements: gold (metal), wood, water, fire, or earth.   The zodiac sign and the element shape the astrology for the year. 2017 is the year of the Fire Rooster.   Roosters are very confident in themselves, observant, hardworking, resourceful, talented, and courageous.   Moreover, Fire Roosters are notable for being trustworthy, with a strong sense of timekeeping and responsibility at work.   I will leave it to you (and Google) dear reader, to search for more specific predictions about your personal Year of the Rooster.
