- Chinese New Year -
2029 - The year of the Rooster

THE ROOSTER
2029, 2017, 2005, 1993, 1981, 1969, 1957, 1945

Direct, talented and capable, roosters are deep thinkers. They are best described as eccentric with strange flights of fancy. Externally, they are radian creatures who enjoy the limelight. They are astute, organised, detailed and meticulous and, will call a spade. Ambitions run high in them and they will work to make it happen. Nothing can match the rooster's resilience in life and it's ability to spring back into action each time. But they can become cocky, bossy and blunt.
They don't care much for subtleties and if they occupy seats of authority, will exhibit tyrannical qualities. Roosters do not know how to unwind and seem forever busy, though mostly they seem to be pecking away at imaginary issues. Their flashy extravagance and need to be recognised often incur the fire of others.

The date of the Chinese New Year is determined by the Chinese calendar, a lunisolar calendar. The same calendar is used in countries that have adopted the Confucian and Buddhism tradition and in many cultures influenced by the Chinese. Chinese New Year starts on the first day of the new year containing a new moon (some sources even include New Year's Eve) and ends on the Lantern Festival fourteen days later. This occurs around the time of the full moon as each lunation is about 29.53 days in duration. In the Gregorian calendar, the Chinese New Year falls on different dates each year, on a date between January 21 and February 21.

Some web sites say the year 2017 is the 4717th Chinese year. If you cannot find the explanation, here is a possible answer for you: The Yellow King's inauguration was held in the spring of 2697 B.C. But the day that was used as the first day of the year was the winter solstice, which was around December 23rd, 2698 B.C. Today's January 1st meant nothing to the Yellow King. If we count that extra eight days in 2698 B.C., then year 2014 is the 4714th Chinese year
