Rooster gets on very well with Ox and Pig. They rhyme very poorly with a fellow rooster.

General Characteristics - Rooster

Truth be told, the Rooster is the strutting peacock of the Chinese Zodiac! These quick thinkers are also practical and resourceful, preferring to stick to what is tried and true. They are also keenly observant. It's unlikely you'll slip anything past Roosters, since they seem to have eyes in the back of their head! This quality often leads others to think the Rooster is psychic. What the Rooster would prefer to be known as is a straightforward sort, one who will reward honesty in kind. Roosters aren't shifty or cagey and have no interest in hiding behind a facade. They are quite the open book, telling the truth and keeping their word. In their world, if you show your hand, people will respect that. This kind of trusting behavior can tempt tricksters to pull a fast one on the Rooster. Bad move! Remember, this bird doesn't indulge in flights of fancy and keeps those eyes wide open at all times. These plucky birds tend to be perfectionists and like to be in control, especially over their appearance. Primping and posing for the Rooster can go on forever! Yep, never an unruffled feather.

Being noticed and admired is an aphrodisiac for Roosters, and they can go a long time on a few kind words. Roosters also adore being out on the town, especially if they're in the company of adoring friends. No quiet dinners at home for the Rooster - the real fun is in dancing till dawn with a gaggle of pals. To top it all off, the Rooster will be the best-dressed in the group! Style counts with this bird, regardless of cost. Looking good may have its price, but at the end of the day, Roosters love a bargain, something which appeals to their basic conservatism. The flip side of this is the Rooster's willingness to think big and daydream where affairs of the heart are concerned. Roosters can create one heck of a fantasy, only to have reality come crashing down on it. In the right relationship, however, the Rooster is one of the most loyal and trustworthy mates around, bending over backwards to please their partner. Roosters need to learn to value their heart and soul as much as their good looks. Their excellent people skills and sharp minds are qualities which others will appreciate as much as a pretty face. The most compatible match for a rooster is the ox or snake.

In 2014, there will be a great improvement in the quality of life for those who are born in the year of the Rooster. There will be a lot of enjoyment and social activities, and you will be very popular. Everyone will like to be involved in what you are doing and greatly appreciate your companionship. You will be showered with invitations and you will feel like a celebrity. There will be many opportunities to strengthen your relationships with family and friends and opportunities to expand your social circle. You will enjoy being the center of attention as well as being able to attract more opportunities to you. Your career and wealth will be good, especially if the nature of your job allows heavy interaction with people and your pay is commission-based. However, while you will enjoy the attraction, you are in a high risk of being framed by others and this could lead to imprisonment. You will get easily carried away when others boost your ego and blind your judgment with flattery. Your attention span will be shorter than average and you can be extremely careless which will put you at a greater disadvantage. Remind yourself to stay alert and keep your feet on the ground. Be practical and realistic. Your relationship with your romantic partner will improve but there will also be the possibility of having affairs. Unfortunately, your health will be poor. Enjoy the glitter and glamour while you catapult into success in 2014.


You will seem to be doing very well in your career in 2014. There will be many opportunities for you to have a high visibility. Your magnetism will attract everybody and opportunities towards you. You will be highly persuasive and convincing. You will excel if the nature of your job is people-oriented. It will be easy for you to clinch big deals, sell your ideas and ask for what you want this year. Support from others will come easily. You could take this opportunity to strengthen your relationship with colleagues and business associates. Nobody with the right frame of mind will have direct confrontation with you, the most popular person in the company. However, this popularity will not spare you from severe betrayal, backstabbing and accusation. It happens that you will be careless, forgetful and easily distracted. This will put you in a high risk of making mistakes and walking right into traps. The price of these errors can be high. There could be legal implications which may lead to imprisonment. Pull yourself together and stay focused on what you are doing. And however challenging it may be for you, you still need to keep an eye on details. Clear your mind and ensure that you are sober before making commitments or endorsing documents. Do not let flattery affect your judgment. No matter what others promise you, you will still need to be responsible for what you commit yourself to.


Your wealth will be average if you earn through a steady income. However, if your job is sales oriented or commissioned, you will be able to earn much more than in other years. Earning in investments and winning in the game of luck will be weak. Instead of depending on luck to increase your financial standing, you will be in a better position if you can leverage on your strong relationships with others to get opportunities, clinch big deals and boost sales. You will spend a lot on entertainment and enjoyment. However, you might also spend astronomical amounts to get yourself out of trouble and on legal matters. You might lose money due to oversight or misplacing of valuables. Stay out of trouble and you will be able to retain your good fortune. Be alert in matters that involve money.


In 2014, there is a strong indication of you progressing to the next level in a relationship. If you are single, you will likely fall in love. However, you will have doubts whether the person is the right one for you or you will have so many choices that you will have trouble choosing who to begin the relationship with. Be honest with your own feelings. Do not make hasty decisions, neither should you take too long to consider. If you are already seeing someone, chances are that you might get married. If you are already married, you might welcome a new family member. This will be a great year for you to strengthen your relationships. There will be a lot of enjoyment together with your romantic partner or spouse. Be cautioned that there will also be many temptations and you might even have affairs. Do not give in to temporary fun and ruin your long-term happiness.


Your health will be poor. Many health conditions that you will be prone to this year will be those that strike fast and possibly unexpected. Examples of such health problems will be heart attacks, stroke, blood vessel rupture and virus attacks that lead to organ failure. Other type of health conditions will be those that relate to poor blood circulation. There will be a high risk of surgeries. Have a balanced diet. Females who are born in the year of the Rooster will have additional health concerns which will be related to the womb and menstrual cycle.


Everybody will seem to be exceptionally friendly and supportive towards you this year. You will seem to be very popular because many people will invite you to various activities and be in contact with you frequently. You can be the life of the party this year and enjoy social activities. However, being friendly does not necessarily mean that they are genuine towards you. There will be many ill-intentioned people attempting to inflate your ego and lure you into trouble when you get carried away. If you are not careful, you will have a high chance of being entangled in a web of trouble which will include legal settlements or even imprisonment. Many will try to get you into agreeing to unfair legal binding terms, involve you in illegal activities or to cheat you. Do not agree or endorse any contracts when you are participating in social activities. Give yourself adequate time to go through all the terms and conditions. If you are unsure, seek professional help. Do not let flattery and gifts cloud your judgment.
