Roosters are organised, excellent time keepers and hard workers. They are faithful as friends, and very strongly family oriented. Despite this they can be somewhat headstrong, and not a little arrogant in giving advice, particularly of the sort that is not asked for! Although outwardly showy, at heart the rooster is somewhat insecure, by nature conservative and old fashioned.
The Chinese believe there are two types of rooster characters. The first is the sunrise/sunset rooster. Born during the sunset or sunrise hours, these are extrovert roosters who live for the moment. Money is seen as functional, its function being for spending - and they will spend with abandon. They are no strangers to overdrafts. The other group, those born outside of the sunrise/sunset ours, are the opposite. Very tight-fisted, they will go to the supermarket just before closing to find the items that have been reduced in price. They save money with great determination, only to squander it in an unguarded moment.
Of all the signs they are the most outspoken and blunt. . Roosters enjoy keeping records and are forever writing notes on bits of paper which are then filed and put away. They also tend to build castles in the air, which leads to another prominent feature of their personality; to promise more than they can deliver. A little short of initiative at times, once Roosters find a task that fits their rigid temperament nothing will stand in a Roosters way.
Although blunt, the roosters honesty makes for stable relationships. Their tendency to point out faults in other sometimes loses them friends, especially as they themselves do not take criticism easily.
The Rooster in 2017 Year of the Rooster
This is your year! In the workplace, promotions are a possibility. Make sure you keep your arrogant nature controlled so that relationships will be fruitful. As it will be another 12 years until it is your cycle again, make the most of your organising nature and plan ahead. Although many things will go right for you this year, Roosters are not without their problems- family difficulties are a possibility. However keep a positive attitude rather than your natural outspokenness which has in the past caused some problems.
