“Determination, Resilience, Encapsulation, Ambition and Motivation” – J. Lyons
The rooster symbolises traits associated with the bird such as ambition, pride, a desire to be admired, punctuality, courage, and passion. Roosters have been used for millennia across all cultures to announce the dawn and to awaken those sleeping. Red is the passion that heats us all, no matter the clothes we wear nor the country we live, nor the colours we see. Red is universal – a colour of love and passion and our fire within.
We each play a role as transcultural creators during the year of the Fiery Rooster. We are the DREAM – taking the lead in shaking up the world to the importance of cross-cultural awareness and for the well-being of us as a whole. As we embrace this New Year, we should feel encouraged to heal any divisions with DREAM’ing – and remind the world of our shared humanity.
