Rooster Year actually begins.
THE SIGN OF THE ROOSTER

loyal individuals. They do not like dishonesty or mockery of any sort.
They are blunt, up front and honest people and expect those around them to
be the same. Roosters are happiest when they are surrounded by others, at
a party or just a social gathering. They even enjoy the spotlight and will
exhibit their charisma and wit in a minute. This star quality can be
overbearing, for a Rooster expects you to listen to him while he speaks
and can become agitated if you don’t. Roosters do have a tendency to brag
about themselves and their achievements and demand an attentive audience
when doing so.

ROOSTER 1921 AND 1981
Metal Roosters can
come off as arrogant and stuck up at times. They need a cushion for that
overextended ego and someone to make sure it stays inflated. They are
reasonable people who seem to analyze every decision they make and every
situation they find themselves in. They are standoffish at times and can
let their aggression get in the way of a blossoming friendship or romance.
These Roosters should take a breather from their egos long enough to
really enjoy what they have to offer.
ROOSTER 1933 AND 1993
This Rooster is a bit
more docile than the other Roosters. He is quieter, more tranquil, not as
vocal or as spotlight hungry as other Roosters. These Roosters are great
communicators probably because they do possess the ability to tone things
down a bit. They have boundless energy that sometimes gets caught up in
detail which causes a lapse in concentration. They have to learn to
appreciate detail but not to harp on it, otherwise they may miss the final
THE WOOD ROOSTER

spotlight like other Roosters. He likes the company of others and is a
genuine friend. These Roosters work for the betterment of society, working

good, causing him to appear vain. He is flaunty and dramatic, yet he is a
brilliant social organizer who loves to plan parties and gatherings. They
do have a tendency to be a bit bossy and this combined with a bluntness
can cause hurt feelings and bruised egos amongst co-workers. Still, these
Roosters make great leaders, creative, diligent and motivated.
ROOSTER 1909 AND 1969
This Rooster is
overtly organized. He is a little reserved and quite careful in his
decision-making. These Roosters are hard workers as well, and can handle
several tasks at once. They are detail-oriented who are quite efficient
and self-sufficient. They take on responsibility without a cause and are
motivated only in wanting to be successful. Sometimes they can be abrasive
with colleagues if work is not up to their standards. This can cause
resentment, so the Earth Rooster must be careful in his approach of his
point of view, being sure to be honest and still kind.

fit people. They enjoy sports and active hobbies such as hiking and
swimming. They don’t get sick very often because they tend to fight

mood swings and stress.
AT HOME WITH THE

of themselves, you can only imagine how they are about their homes.

assets and taste. They are very neat and clean and have everything in its
own specific place. They make a chore out of cleaning out drawers and
closets with a knack for rearranging them better and better each time they
attempt it. This habit is enough to drive anyone berserk, but a Rooster’s
family understands his need for a dramatic appearance.
