Direct, talented and capable, roosters are deep thinkers. They are best described as eccentric with strange flights of fancy. Externally, they are radian creatures who enjoy the limelight.
They are astute, organised, detailed and meticulous and, will call a spade. Ambitions run high in them and they will work to make it happen. Nothing can match the rooster's resilience in life and it's ability to spring back into action each time. But they can become cocky, bossy and blunt.
They don't care much for subtleties and if they occupy seats of authority, will exhibit tyrannical qualities. Roosters do not know how to unwind and seem
forever busy, though mostly they seem to be pecking away at imaginary issues. Their flashy extravagance and need to be recognised often incur the fire of others.

believe the animal ruling one's birth year has a profound influence on
personality, and destiny. The saying is: "This animal hides in your heart."
Years Corresponding to Chinese Zodiac Signs:
The date of the Chinese New Year
is determined by the Chinese calendar, a lunisolar calendar. The same calendar
is used in countries that have adopted the Confucian and Buddhism tradition and
in many cultures influenced by the Chinese. Chinese New Year starts on the first
day of the new year containing a new moon (some sources even include New Year's
Eve) and ends on the Lantern Festival fourteen days later. This occurs around
the time of the full moon as each lunation is about 29.53 days in duration. In
the Gregorian calendar, the Chinese New Year falls on different dates each year,
on a date between January 21 and February 21.
Chinese New Year Days
Chinese New Year begins
Chinese New Year is an annual celebration marking the start of the new year according to the Chinese lunisolar calendar. Chinese New Year always falls in the months of January or February, and each
Chinese new year is represented by 1 of the 12 creatures of the Chinese Zodiac – 2016 is the year of the
Monkey. Chinese New Year is also known as the Spring Festival, and in pre-modern times it would signal to farmers in China that they must begin preparation for the sowing of their fields.
"The Spring Festival was the product of an agrarian society.
The people who were farmers would plant in spring, harvest in autumn, relax a little in summer and rest in winter.
The seasons thus became a living cycle and the harvests were dependant on nature.”
