Year of the Rooster

The Rooster is the tenth Sign of the Chinese Zodiac. It is a Yin Sign associated with the Metal Element.

Roosters are highly flamboyant people, and their appearance is very important to them -- they are never satisfied with how they look. They are friendly, pleasant and obliging people, who can prove themselves to be as resourceful and talented as they say they are in moments of crisis. Roosters have the ability to take life as it comes, and indeed may appear a bit too relaxed for the nerves of their intimates. They are fiercely independent, and rely solely upon themselves in all questions of support and effectiveness.

People born in the Year of the Rooster are deep thinkers, capable, and talented. They like to be busy and are devoted beyond their capabilities and are deeply disappointed if they fail. People born in the Rooster Year are often a bit eccentric, and often have rather difficult relationship with others. They always think they are right and usually are! They frequently are loners and though they give the outward impression of being adventurous, they are timid. Rooster people's emotions, like their fortunes, swing very high to very low. They can be selfish and too outspoken, but are always interesting and can be extremely brave.
