The Rooster's Chinese Horoscope for 2014

Loosen up
Stephanie Dempsey

The Year of the Wood Horse will be filled with opportunities for the ambitious Rooster. Horse Years reward those who are honest, forthright and diligent. Happily, the Rooster embodies all of these qualities. 2014 promises to be extremely busy, which should be welcome news for this dutiful sign. Many Roosters may decide to upgrade their computers, smartphones and vehicles this year as a means to fulfill their responsibilities in a quick, efficient manner.

Prepare for all the changes and energy you'll face in your own life this year with a personalized 9-Star Ki Forecast.

2014 won't be all smooth sailing, however. Because this year is ruled by the Wood Element, the Rooster may feel slightly persecuted. Wood Years encourage people to branch out, take risks and be flexible. This is difficult for the focused Rooster, which prefers to strive for perfection.

Instead of being praised for their high standards, the Rooster could be mocked for its rigidity. Smart members of this sign will learn to loosen up this year.

Horse Years also place great emphasis on modesty, compassion and kindness. Therefore, the proud Rooster will feel pressured to temper its ego a bit. Instead of seeking the spotlight, this sign would do better to act as a supporting player throughout 2014. This will be counterintuitive, but Roosters who insist on taking center stage will be in for a rude awakening.

As far as health is concerned, respiratory issues could surface for the Rooster. This sign would be wise to invest in an air filter and humidifier. Staying away from pollutants and using natural products instead of harsh chemicals can also prove helpful in the Year of the Wood Horse.

The Rooster's 2014 love horoscope

Roosters in committed relationships should yield to their partner in 2014. The Year of the Wood Horse places tremendous emphasis on equality. The Rooster has a tendency to take the lead in all matters, particularly romance. Unless this sign learns to defer to their beloved, it could be abandoned. Horse Years often involve stiff competition, especially on the romantic front. If the Rooster doesn't want to lose its partner to a more attentive, giving rival, it should strive for a more equal partnership.

Single Roosters could find love through friends and relatives. Being set up on blind dates could prove very successful for this sign. Their naturally brash behavior may not make a good first impression in the Year of the Wood Horse. Therefore, it will be helpful to have someone vouch for their character before going on a date. Roosters that learn to listen more than they speak can be successful in love this year.

The Rooster's 2014 money horoscope

Job opportunities will abound for Roosters in the Year of the Wood Horse. This sign's intelligence, organization and honesty will help it go far in 2014. This is an ideal time for the Rooster to land a high-paying job, raise or promotion. A power struggle could break out during this competitive year, which the Rooster could win easily. The important thing for this sign to remember is to cultivate and maintain friendships in the workplace. This is not a good year to make enemies. If the Rooster saves more than it spends in 2014, they'll flourish in the Year of the Wood Horse.

Unemployed Roosters can find work through social networking. During the Year of the Wood Horse, it pays to join clubs and professional organization. Volunteering at a charitable organization or serving as an intern can lead to a salaried job. The Rooster shouldn't let pride get in the way of making inroads to their dream career.
