The Rooster

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

Focussing on the center with accuracy and fond of compliments

On a professional level and intimate level as well, the Rooster claims adoration and admiration. Despite its apparent impressive appearance and expressive behavior, the Rooster is uncertain. So the Rooster takes care of the aspects of appearance. Equally, it gains recognition, acknowledgment, and confirmation.

They feel convenient while staying in the center of the crowd… and communicate their sophisticated knowledge with several discussion participants. Seeking 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, the 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 behavior for some reason – sometimes it settles in the far and then it is at the right time at the right place. If the Rooster mistook, it would have never admitted. It does not miss its effect and appears arrogant and complacent. But for those who know the Rooster in a profound way, they experience its good-natured kind. But in general, the Rooster is 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 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 dependents.

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.


Ideal partner:
Snake, Ox

Pig, Horse, Dragon

Moderately suitable:
Rat, Monkey, Goat, Tiger, Rooster, Dog
