Only a few Monkeys had a fine Goat year and even the Year of the Monkey has not been as good as expected. Anyway, this is the first general outlook on the 2017 Year of the Rooster which will start on January 28.
in the limelight
Thomas Coville has earned the "male Monkey of the year award" by sailing around the world on his own in record breaking 49 days.
In Paris Kim Kardashian did report that she was robbed of some jewelry worth several million Dollars.
Karolina Pliskova has lost the US Open final against "Snake" Angelique Kerber and Selena Gomez went into a therapy against depressions.
Theresa May has become the new Prime minister in the UK and manager Didier Dechamps had reached the final at the Euro Cup with France.
Jerry Hall had started well into her big year with her marriage to Rupert Murdoch, who became her second Goat husband after Mick Jagger.
... the life of a Monkey .... committed to action
Tons of action and challenges is what Monkeys are out for in this world and being a little provocative while aiming to become the very best within any competition is what they can enjoy to the very max.
"She-n" means Monkey in Chinese, and they call him "hóu" very flexible and mobile.
After the unexpectedly tricky Goat and Monkey years the ruling Rooster is likely to turn things into even more difficult situations.
Back in the last year of the Rooster big wins and triumph were almost down at rock bottom in terms of numbers and even German chancellor Gerhard Schroeder was forced to step down.
But at least that gave him some time to focus on love and passion and that's what it is all about when looking at another year of the Rooster.
And not only Kim Kardashian is likely to replace her "messed up Snake" Kanye with someone more charming as Monkeys are surely flexible enough to jump over to the next Banana tree with slightest ease.
Obviously the 2017 year of Rooster will be of a completely different to the 2016 Year of the Monkey and chances for fortune and career might be much lower until the 2018 year of the Dog will lead to more action and opportunities.
So get ready dear Monkeys, it's time for love and passion, fell inspired by Michael Douglas and his Rooster Catherine-Zeta Jones.
