Rooster 雞: 1933 Water, 1945 Wood, 1957 Fire, 1969 Earth, 1981 Metal, 1993 Water, 2005 Wood, 2017 Fire 

Rooster: The Year of the Dragon is auspicious and favorable for collaboration and career advancement, making it an excellent year for positive change. However, there is a vulnerability to respiratory diseases, so extra caution should be taken to avoid catching a cold during seasonal changes. It's advisable to keep west-facing doors and windows in the home closed as much as possible. This is especially important for women, who should avoid getting chilled to prevent illness. In the face of interpersonal conflicts, try not to escalate the situation. Even though you might have the upper hand in these circumstances, victory could also bring entanglements such as disputes and legal issues, which can be draining.
