Chinese New Year
2029 - The year of the Rooster

2029, 2017, 2005, 1993, 1981, 1969, 1957, 1945

13th of February

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.

Characterizing a person is determined by their animal sign and the year of birth. The result is that there are five different Rooster types:
Type of Rooster Year of Birth Characteristics
Wood Rooster 1945, 2005 Energetic, overconfident, tender and shaky (not stable)
Fire Rooster 1957, 2017 Reliable, with a strong sense of time and responsibility at work
Earth Rooster 1909, 1969 Sweet, generous, reliable and popular with their friends
Gold Rooster 1921, 1981 Determined, brave, persistent and hardworking
Water Rooster 1933, 1993 Smart, witty, tender-hearted and compassionate

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.
