Those who are born in the Year of Rooster – according to Chinese zodiac – have many distinguished characteristics, such as being ambitious, honest, and bright. They also communicate very well with others. Roosters are talkative, outspoken, frank, open, and loyal individuals. They like to be the center of attention and always appear attractive and beautiful and prefer to dress up. In daily life, they seldom rely on others. Roosters are always active, amusing, and popular within a crowd.

The Rooster is the tenth sign in the Chinese zodiac. Each year is related to an animal according to a 12-year cycle. Years of the Rooster are as follows; 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017, and 2029. Zodiac year, or Ben Ming Nian, is any year of your Chinese zodiac animal sign, determined by your birth year. As there are 12 animal signs, a year of your birth sign comes once per 12-year-cycle: when you are (about) 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72, and so on.


Relationships with Roosters

 The loyal Rooster is devoted to their friends, while always keeping their promises and are true to their word. Sensitive individuals may find it hard to get along well with Roosters because they often boast about themselves and their accomplishments, which can make some feel uncomfortable

 Wealth of the Rooster

 It will be a challenge for Roosters to make advances in work although many efforts are given.  According to Chinese astrology, people in their zodiac year are believed to offend Tai Sui, the God of Age, and experience his curse. It is believed to bring nothing but bad luck. Therefore, Chinese astrology followers pay special attention to their conduct every twelfth year of their lives. However, according to Chinese tradition, there are some things that people can do to obstruct bad luck in a zodiac year. By wearing red you can drive away bad spirits.  Red is one of the luckiest colors in Chinese culture, standing for prosperity, loyalty, success, and happiness. Therefore, wearing red during your zodiac year will bring you good luck and give you a good year. You can wear a red belt, red socks, red shoes, or red clothes.
