Roosters are brave and confident in work and in life. They are hardworking, cautious, and critical. A Rooster doesn’t mince words and can verbally shoot from the hip. Often brilliant, they are at their best in a crowded room, and shine more in company than in intimate situations.
The Rooster loves to dream and meditate upon grandiose ideas and philosophies. In Asain tradition, it is said that the Rooster is so resourceful they can find a worm in a desert. This explains the continual and restless activity that characterizes this sign. The personality of those born under the sign of the Rooster consists of three levels – appearance, practicality, and strong emotion. Roosters are generally well-dressed, and an observer is often struck first by their elegant gestures and rich colors. These souls rarely pass unnoticed. Scrupulous about their appearance, a Rooster will become ruffled at others lack of taste, and are never completely satisfied with their own look even though they seem quite self-confident.
The most favorable hours of the day for the Rooster are between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m., the last yang hours of the day, when the setting sun radiates its most glorious colors. For the Rooster, who was the first to greet the day, and has been dilligently at work ever since, it is the time to relax and enjoy these pre-evening hours.
The Rooster is pure-minded and hates hypocrisy. They are discriminating critics, and their life-creed is I can do better. This is because Roosters accomplish things quicker and more efficiently than most. Their criticism and cynical observations will just be factual statements to them, and they have no intention of offending you personally. A Rooster simply must speak their mind and is a truly independent spirit.
During the four stages in the life of the Rooster, according to Chinese tradition, there will be many ups and downs. From childhood, through youth and maturity, the Rooster is the sign with the greatest joys and the deepest sorrows. They are sometimes rich, sometimes poor, sometimes surrounded by friends, and sometimes alone. According to tradition, emotional stability will be attained as the Rooster becomes settled in a profession or identity, and the Rooster will enjoy a happy and contented old age. Roosters are adaptable, which helps them to feel at home just about anywhere. If you wish to give your Rooster a gift, remember that it is the feeling that counts to them, so you can’t go wrong when you choose something that comes from your heart.
Unenlightened Roosters can be vain, hairs-plitting, and hypercritical. The shadow side of the Rooster is egotism. They focus on perfection and are highly critical of others as they hurl their caustic comments. Sarcastic and harsh behavior represents the Roosters energy being directed in its most unproductive form. Expressed in its darkest form, this energy becomes manic-depressive, caustic, pompous, tactless, preoccupied with appearance, suspicious, or braggart behavior. The choice lies entirely with the individual. Taken to extreme, manic depression and sadistic personality disorders may develop.
Roosters are highly cultivated and, beneath their cordial manner, capable of serious conversation. Having read a great deal, they are knowledgeable about a large variety of subjects and possess an excellent memory. Curiously, however, they rarely display this knowledge openly. Roosters reveal themselves only to their family and intimate friends, as they fear being the subject of a gossip session. A Rooster resists any attempt from outsiders to probe their private being or expose their personal business.
Roosters are charming, but they are also sometimes difficult to live with due to their tireless work ethic and preoccupation with the here and now. If a Rooster seems indifferent to the state of mind of others, it is with innocence and good faith, as they are merely distracted and following their own route and routine. This same Rooster can always be counted on during times of disaster and dire necessity. When you are sick with the flu and the plumbing has backed up, the Rooster will appear with medicine and tools to restore order in record time.
Regarding money, the Rooster can be extravagant and often has a hard time resisting temptation. However, many Roosters are financially fortunate due to their motto of never put off for tomorrow what you can do today, and their karmic gift to tolerate deferred gratification.
Roosters are usually ahead of their peers in academics and are known to have little tolerance for messiness and sloppiness, both mentally and practically. Many a mother of a Rooster child has asked herself, Who is the parent here? as the young Rooster instructs the parent on the proper way to do things. A Rooster is uncomfortable in a messy house or cluttered work area. They give of themselves completely in all work endeavors; therefore, these souls need leisure activities and evenings spent socializing or reading to unwind.
Favorite places for the Rooster are private corners of their own, where others can enter by invitation only – a kind of secret garden. Harmonious colors are violet, yellow, and green. Medicinal plants and flowers for them are orange and palm trees, sunflowers, and hawthorn. Their natal birthstone is the topaz.
The most favorable time of year for the Rooster is between mid-October and mid-November, when the harvest is ending and Chinesepeople are at their happiest, seeing the reward of so much labor. For the Rooster, who works so diligently throughout the year, this is a most bountiful and rewarding time. The Rooster, who feels like the host of the harvest celebration, can then break their tedious routine and pause to take pride in their achievements and successes.
The best careers for a Rooster is that of a collector, accountant, orfinancier, and as the hero of difficult projects. The worst role for the Rooster is that of a spy (much too conspicuous). Any commercial profession, from salesperson to head sales manager, will also be a good fit. Military officer/soldier, fireman, restaurant/cafe owner, high-fashion hairdresser, model, public relations specialist, dentist, surgeon, and bodyguard will also provide positive career alternatives for Roosters.
An outstanding performer, this animal sign shines when they are the center of attention. Full-fledged as a personality, the Rooster could well pursue any career that is in the public eye. Joyful, witty, and amusing, the magnificent Rooster will rarely pass up the opportunity to recount their adventures and accomplishments. This makes them ideally suited to the performing arts, and many accomplished actors, actresses, as well as frontline fighters are found under this sign.

Eccentric and extravagant to an extreme, this fowl often has difficulty in its relationships with others. However, it can be the most loyal, trusting and supportive mate around, one who bends over backward to please its loved ones (even if they end up feeling a bit hen-pecked).
