Happy Chinese New Year, Fire Rooster 2017/4715

*****

This year, Chinese New Year falls on a Saturday.  And, I may not have another opportunity to post these this week.  So, you get to scrutinize and potentially pass them around a few days early.  Enjoy.

^ The parching sun rooster consumes fewer money/leaves than it expends.  In other words, it burns through money/resources.  The rooster is watching, so…chinesenewyear4715-2017-firerooster_postcard-ap-5b-1j

^ Roosters like to be tidy, efficient and productive (even if they tend to be extravagant and work less consistently than their neighbors, especially oxen); so it’s good advice if you don’t want to upset the roosters in your life.  However, this year, they may feel free to party and celebrate who they are.  Their friends may want to watch their wallets/purses (unless being friends with a rooster brings unusually good luck).chinesenewyear2017-firerooster_postcard-ap-2-1j

^ In the west, the moon cycle’s Chinese New Year is veiled by the solar New Year.  Roosters are considered nature’s alarm clocks, signaling the start of a new day.  So, here the fire/sun rooster is rising like a firecracker to signal the new year at daybreak.chinesenewyear2017-4715-firerooster_postcard-ap-2c-1j

^ In the east, Chinese New Year follows the cycle of the moon.  The fire/sun rooster signals the start of a new day/year, shooting past the moon like a firecracker.  Good morning.

^ Ho-Oh, the (2nd and more traditional) Pokemon phoenix; what is more often pictured on Chinese items in contrast to the dragon.  So, why IS the rooster part of the zodiac and not the phoenix?chinesenewyear-2016-4715_moltres-pokemon-colorup-ap-1j

^ Moltres (the other Pokemon firebird/phoenix).

Already Ready for Tokyo Summer Olympics 2020

*****

The moment I heard Tokyo was getting the Summer Olympics in 2020 and saw the “trailer” at the end of Rio’s closing ceremony, I started conjuring ideas for promotional material.  [Presents business card to anyone working on the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.]

Here are the first thoughts to cross my creative mind.  [Note:  I am posting this months after I finished these pieces.  I am not sure why I didn’t post sooner.]

The above slideshow was the first piece I imagined, combining the busy city lights with the Japanese rising sun flag and the dawning of a new day of competition, particularly the first day of the Olympics when the torch is lit.  I had a tune playing in my mind, as well, to accompany the animation.

Astrology Question, Re: Rooster and Rabbit

*****

Okay, all you astrologically inclined people in WordPress-land.  I need your input.

Let’s say you have a Rabbit year paired with a Rooster year of compatible elements, with an 18 year age difference and the following favorable signs:  Sun, Venus and Mars are all very compatible with my signs.

Is this a favorable match even if Rooster and Rabbit are said to be trouble together?  Or, does the warning remain the same?

Also, if the Rabbit and Rooster are compatible elements and Venus and Mars are a hot match…but her Sun doesn’t sit well with his Sun/Moon…can this relationship still work?
