The Chinese New Year is upon us, and it's time to pull
those party hats back out of the closet! On February 9th,
we're ringing in 4702, the Year of the Rooster -- and
we're all in for a year of honesty and practicality (and
for those more stylishly-inclined, this could be a great
year for fashion).
Roosters are the perfectionists of the Chinese zodiac,
especially when it comes to their looks. But don't let
that appearance of vanity fool you. Hidden beneath their
well-groomed facade, you'll find one of the most honest
and observant souls on earth. A Rooster believes in being
straightforward and expects the same from the rest of
us. They also notice everything that's going on, making
them experts in law, medicine and science.
So, what can we expect from the upcoming year? Rooster-like
traits will spill into everyone's life. We'll all likely
find ourselves taking an extra peek in the mirror as we
head out the door. More importantly, we can also expect
great headway made in fields such as medicine and science.

In the West, the Dog is man's best friend, but in Chinese
Astrology this Sign is a little more unpredictable than
that. Dogs are loyal, faithful and honest and always stick
to their firm codes of ethics. However, this Sign has
trouble trusting others. It's generally quite trustworthy
itself -- except for the occasional "little white lies"
the Dog tells in order to make things go more smoothly.
The Dog makes a wonderful, discreet and loyal friend (despite
any white lies) and is an excellent listener. This Sign
tends to root for the underdog and its keen sense of right
and wrong makes it duty-bound to the core. The Dog's mantra
seems to be, Live right, look out for the little people
and fight injustice whenever possible.
