What is awaiting those born in the year of the Rooster
In the Chinese Zodiac, the year 2017 is the year of the Rooster and starts on January 28th, under the sign of the Fire Rooster. Being a sign of rising, of awakening to life and of triumph, this promises to be a year of great achievements.
The main condition is for these to be preceded by a lot of hard-work and patience. But for the rooster, however, the forecast is not that optimistic as, traditionally, the year that matches the native’s sign is considered to be a baleful year.
The Rooster in the Chinese Horoscope
This year’s representative is meticulous and precise, economical and hard-working. They are very confident about their qualities and know how to use them, but on the other side, they also like to boast or to be permanently praised, their vanity reaching maximum levels sometimes.
In the Chinese tradition, the red rooster crest casts away bad spirits, but they can also get ostentatiously boastful.
Also, people born under the Chinese sign of the Rooster get to point where they desire military honors and medals, and those around them are forced to recognize their worth every time in order to stay at peace with them.
They are scrupulous and pay attention to details, they have a very clear and very precise way of thinking and they always find the most intelligent solutions. They are frank and honest, pleasant and amusing, maybe even ironic and cynical sometimes, as they have a very well developed critical sense. Sometimes they can go over the line and become insulting, which can enable some dislikes.
Brave to the extremes, they sometimes get involved in things that are not their business at all. They are very exacting both of themselves and of the others, and they forgive no mistake.
They work hard and they can get to the top using their scrupulosity. They enjoy joining contradictory discussion not because of their combative spirit, but because they want to make a show out of their knowledge. They are perfectionists and are always looking for the best solutions, but they don’t like compromises. They are the kind of people that do not accept the middle way: it’s either black or white.

The Chinese Horoscope is different from the European one because it does not consider determined periods of time between two months, but the years in which one was born, with precise dates. The Chinese people have 5 essential elements that influence their sign, but the general characteristics remain the same: metal, water, fire, earth and wood.
