Rooster (Chicken)


The Rooster is a very sociable type, some people might say they are even a bit too sociable. They are entertaining, courageous, enthusiastic and as honest as honest can be. However, they are complex.

Clearly there are a lot of positives going for you, like being charitable and generous but there of course negatives – for example your pride; when you tell everyone how to behave you can be pompous and hypocritical.

You are self-conscious and even self-obsessed, especially by your image, but you are loyal to friends and family, and are helpful and cooperative, especially in crises. You are driven by ambition and you can work hard to achieve this. You want to do something and be somebody and you are in fact deserving of this.

On the other hand, you’re a traditionalist and look back to the good old days, even if you weren’t there! Roosters love pomp and circumstance, parades and rituals – from movie premiere’s to carnival’s the Rooster will be in front (and behind) everything that is loud, proud and full of verve and passion. They love it and actually, so does everyone else!

Roosters are responsible and generous, and they will not let you down… – it will – interfere in and take over every area of your life; correct your manners; boss you around; criticise your behaviour… they will seek in each moment to put things right; they’re sure you need looking after and improving and all because… they care so much about you.

Business and Career

Roosters like change, but in a very conservative way. They are good with people and full of grandiose ideas, which they will share endlessly with everyone in ear shot. These are hit and miss, but always full of vision. It wants to make the world a better place, as long as it is according to their tastes and views – which are however old fashioned – because they don’t trust the future. Thus solutions for improving the present are far and few between. Never the less, they will always do well in any job, as long as they can avoid stress and utilise their innate magnetism and charisma.

Roosters make good sales people, presenters, administrators, PR officers and actors, however, routine bores them stupid so office work is not good and anyway Roosters, just like their farmyard counterparts, like the open; flirting and meeting new people suits them just fine.

They don’t like taking orders, but do like giving them, hence, in fact they are always best working for someone else because as a boss, they are critical, bossy, nagging, interfering and generally over bearing and employees will find this too much! As they are not so good at doing the job themselves but they don’t trust anyone to do the job as well as them, don’t ever leave a Rooster to finish a job, it won’t… They are awful at finishing things, as there is always another tasty morsel to pick at just around the corner… and fresh food is better than old.


Love is important to Roosters, and whilst they can be flirtatious they will only start a relationship with real potential with a lot of hesitancy; thus, if you want a Rooster, it will be a challenge to catch it, but once trapped it’s yours for life!

However, they often try and organise everything – including love – and because love – and indeed life -is never perfect, they can become disappointed with life itself.

Whilst loyal and faithful – you work hard on relationships and care about your partner – in bed you can be an impatient dictator – you demand the satisfaction and know what you like. Although egocentric you are energetic and enthusiastic… but you always come first.


Whilst the Rooster’s family is extremely important to it – if you are in its family, you might not know it! However, when away from home, it is always talking about it; about its partner’s great qualities and promoting its children’s achievements. It has exceedingly high standards for all and notices every fault but never seems to notice successes.
