Chinese Zodiac Signs: The Rooster

The Rooster’s personality

They want to be the center of attention but at the same time are very generous to their friends and loved ones. They appear outwardly very strong-willed and energetic but are actually full of fear and worries on the inside. Committed to themselves, Roosters are hypercritical of everything and everyone, especially if they are not getting enough respect from the other animals on the farm. They can be inflexible, with beliefs and opinions that tend toward fanaticism.

Roosters just want to strut their stuff. They are fashion gurus and are unafraid to create their own unique style. People admire them for the colors they wear, their pleasing outfits and dashing ingenuity. Roosters want to be successful, and their enduring self-belief makes them sure -- cock-sure, in fact -- that they can handle everyone and everything. Eager to know all there is to know about any subject that interests them, Roosters often show impatience and a lack of humility -- they want only the best when it comes to material things. It might take Roosters a while to reach their goals, but it’s likely they’ll succeed, as Roosters are generally too proud to accept less than the best. They are perfectionists, which serves their ambitions but may be hard on those around them.

The Rooster in love

The Rooster woman in love: The female Rooster is more loyal than the Rooster man, as she wants to be the only chicken in her lover’s flock. She will do anything for the love of her life as long as she can be proud of him/her and is sure that her partner’s loyalty is unwavering. She will take care of her children as a mother hen does ... love them dearly and tend them well.

The Rooster man in love: The Rooster man is very charming. Although he seldom becomes close friends with other men, he attracts many female friends who understand his passion for beauty and luxury. If you love a Rooster man he’ll give you many chances to show off with him. But he could also demand a lot of you. Rooster guys want to find someone will take care of them for the rest of their lives. They want to be proud of their partner ... someone who tends to his/her appearance and works to remain young-looking and beautiful. Life will not be dull -- or calm -- with a Rooster man. If you snag one, hold tight -- you’ll be in for a lively and interesting ride.

The Rooster and money

A Rooster needs money to be happy. They are practical in their approach to finances but rarely frugal. Money needs to be there to support their grand style and ambitions -- they’ll spend it quite freely on beautiful things that show off how successful they are. Expressing gratitude is hard for the Rooster, as they tend to let pride get in the way. The Rooster’s love of luxury will prompt them to work hard to support their extravagant tendencies. But Roosters will share their resources with people in need -- as long as it doesn’t become a habit.
