Chinese New Year’s Day’s date is calculated according to the Chinese lunar calendar, hence the date is different each year on the Gregorian (internationally used) calendar, but always in the period January 21 to February 20. In 2017 it’s Saturday, January 28th.
Chinese New Year 2017 will be the year of the Rooster. For people born in the year of the rooster (1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017, and 2029). Roosters should be more careful in 2017.
According to Chinese astrology, the year of one’s birth sign is the most unlucky year in the 12-year cycle. In a year of your sign, horoscopes for all aspects of your life will not be very good. However, you can reverse fate by attention to the God of Age “star” and warding off bad luck.
