With both a Fire Rooster and a Dipper day you can see how we chose today's title. “Chipper" means being in sprightly good humour and laughter is associated with the fire element. Rooster is obviously a male chicken, so that’s also appropriate. However, chipper also relates to health and that may be a problem for a Fire Rooster.
Although incredibly lucky with money Fire Roosters tend to suppress their emotions and this can create health issues in the form of liver, blood, small intestine, teeth or finger problems. Depending on the rest of their horoscope this would need to be balanced, with either earth or water and wood. As luck would have it, this months sign of Ox naturally balances and reacts well to the Rooster to make this a good day for all, not just famous Fire Rooster celebrities like Antony Gormley (day) Serena Williams, Peter Falk - Columbo, Sting and Chip , no not quite, Chubby Checker.
Dipper is one of the 28 lunar mansions representing the northern heaven and the Tortoise. Its very auspicious consequently, the Chinese almanac recommends meditating or honouring ancestors, taking a course travelling, getting married, exchanging gifts, having an astrology reading, sweeping house, buying or making clothes, emigrating, opening a business and trading, refurbishing a home or office, laying foundations, fixing a roof, , or setting up a tombstone as suitable activities. It advises against beauty therapies in the form of hairstyling, manicure or pedicure, and litigation.
