At the stroke of midnight on the Lunar New Year of 2017, the Fire Monkey makes way for the Fire Rooster. While it is a time for families to get together and children to light up the skies with fireworks, the New Year is a time for constructive change.

It encourages a special change in our approach to important life matters such as wealth, health, relationships and of course…career. With that, let’s take a look at how each animal sign will fare from a career perspective in The Year of the Fire Rooster in 2017.

The Rooster

There would be minimal obstruction in your pursuit of greatness in career. You will dream big but it is important to focus on the job at hand and execute it in an orderly fashion.

Hasty decisions with these wild ambitions will only tear down what you have built thus far. Remember to nurture relationships with colleagues and subordinates alike to make the process of carrying out your duties that much easier.

The Dog

This year brings a barrage of tasks to your table and it is most probably caused by involuntary acceptance. You will be under a great deal of pressure and it will be important for you to take it all in good stride.

Failing to handle the stress can lead to compounding stress-related health problems. Learn to manage your time well so that you do not spread yourself too thin while handling these overwhelming tasks.

The Pig

Due to the hectic nature of your job, you will be in a constant state of exhaustion throughout 2017. Your workload would have increased while the results may not seem to reflect the amount of effort that you have put in.

This domino effect will continue to influence the time you need for rest and recuperation, resulting in poor performance at work. Learn to build task boundaries and set aside ample time for rest.

The Rat

Office politics and gossip will come in the way of your success at work. It is important that you distant yourself from the problems of others and focus on personal career growth.

Failing to do so will result in strained relationships at the office and stagnant career progression. Simply commit to your job without getting distracted and you will find that a Noble Person will appear to guide and help you in your career.

The Ox

It will be a tough year for you, but you will achieve substantial wealth through an increment in salary or promotion at work. You will come to see that there are several opportunities for you to climb up the corporate ladder.

This will be the most opportune period for you to get the attention of your superiors and clients. Be proactive in learning new skills and areas of development to see a big leap in your career.

The Tiger

You will come to develop strong bonds with your superiors and this will be an advantage to climb up the career ladder. It is also likely that your working relationships with colleagues will improve.

There will be several occasions that will call for you to showcase your talents, and that you must do to be noticed. However, do not let the stress of the immense workload get to your head. There is even the possibility that Noble People around you can help you start your own business.

The Rabbit

Throughout a very busy year, there will be a strong chance that you would be involved in some form of miscommunication with your colleagues and superiors. There is also the possibility that you will be dragged into office politics.

This may prompt you to consider seeking a new job but the year does not favour you to do so. Simply be patient and maintain composure as the hard times will eventually pass.

The Dragon

The year presents a good opportunity to design and execute your plans to advance in your career. It would be best to strategise and implement projects during the first half of the year.

Ensure that there are contingency plans to support the weight of these projects and any obstacles can be overcome with ease. Stick to this game plan throughout the year and you would be able to reap the fruits of your labour by the last quarter of the year.

The Snake

Due to your outspoken nature and differences in opinion, you can easily find yourself disagreeing with your superiors. There is a possibility that these situations may blow up into something very unpleasant.

You will also be frustrated with the way things are progressing, as they may not be moving at the pace you want them to. To avoid distasteful events, simply maintain a positive attitude and be tolerant in any dealings with colleagues or superiors.

The Horse

The Fire Rooster Year will be a challenging year for you in terms of career progression plans. You may hold a high position at work but this status can be shaken through a few careless mistakes on your part.

You can avoid this by not blindly placing trust in others around you, and scrutinising all ongoing tasks. If you do not do this, there may be a chance that your boss will lose faith in your ability.

  • 24 February 2017 at 9.30am

The Goat

Even though you may be diligent in your approach to work, there will be a strong chance that you may not see the career progression you deserve.

This is because your superiors will fail to get your attention and it will be the reason you will feel as though nothing is improving in your career prospects. Simply hold your head high and keep on doing what you do; your efforts will eventually bear fruit further down the road.

You can look forward to a happy working experience for the majority of 2017. Everything will be smooth sailing as projects and assignments will be completed with little to no worry.

This is due to the presence of Noble People in your life, therefore, you should maintain healthy relationships with them. Also, you will have supportive colleagues and superiors to thank for your effortless stroll through 2017.
