An impressive and proud character defines the Rooster (chinese sign: 酉). The Rooster might master the period of crisis with coolness and holding its head up high. They prefer having an overview towards each situation and they continue their work by developing and processing diverse structures - various plans are being adopted and finally, equally practical solutions for each single case. They like to have a perfect body and a perfect mind.

Focussing on the centre with accuracy and fond of compliments

On professional level and intimate level as well, the Rooster claims adoration and admiration. Despite its obvious impressive appearance and expressive behaviour the Rooster is generally uncertain. So the Rooster takes care of the aspects of appearance. Equally it gains for recognition, acknowledgement and confirmation.

They feel convenient while staying in the centre of the crowd… and communicate their complex knowledge with several discussion participants. Seeking for companionship and fostering the dialogue and conversation is theirs. Do not start an argument with the Rooster – you could expect disparaging comments and indoctrination…

Unfortunately for them quarrel is not ceased and for the settlement of disputes the general course has not charted. But it is not convenient for a Rooster. The Rooster changes its behaviour for some reason – sometimes it settles in the far and then it is to the right time at the right place. If the Rooster might mistake it would have never admitted. It does not miss its effect and appears arrogant and self-complacent. But for those who know the Rooster in a profound way they experience its good-natured kind. But in general the Rooster is basically a good guy.

The Rooster and its particular manner

The Rooster shows its pleasant and proud side and it might be the best it could be offered. Its effect on the opposite sex is immense when it brings it on. But another heart might be broken until the Rooster would have found its love. Within its close relationship the Rooster is more conservative and defines a marriage and classic attitude. It prefers core values like fidelity and faithfulness in marriage with perfect family life. Doesn’t matter if man or woman – Rooster is on stage; they support for their dependants.

Concerning its career the Rooster has various skills and talents. The Rooster is regarded and is often set in responsible positions. With restriction it is recommended for the classic career structure.
