Being born in the Chinese Year of the Rooster is an indication of the inheritance of a warm, cheery and friendly personality. Astrologists in ancient times considered this creature to be an extrovert, with an entertaining warmth and a good word for everyone. A Cancerian Rooster is believed to inherit some of the Rooster's magnetism, resulting in them being one of the most sociable of all Cancerians. Shyness is lessened and confidence is increased, resulting in individuals that are less complicated and not as easily upset by the thoughts and comments of others. This makes the Cancerian Rooster happier and less anxious in the company of others.
The Rooster's influence creates Cancerians who are much more easygoing than their typical Western sun sign suggests. The Cancerian Roosters combined traits are responsible for these people's increased sociability skills. The Rooster's presence livens up the usually overly-serious Cancer characteristics with a touch of confidence, motivation and the gift of better communication. The Cancerian Rooster makes a good companion in life, as they are very understanding and able to easily and quickly convey their compassion. This is a big bonus for the character of any friend or partner. It enables them to see opinions from all sides and not just their own. This naturally unselfish attitude is an asset in any kind of relationship.
A Cancerian Rooster likes to look good and often has a rather exceptional eye for detail. They enjoy mixing and matching things, and their home is often full of bright, colorful decor and coordinating items. These personalities like to express themselves in both their surroundings and their attire. If you want to know the latest styles a Cancerian Rooster will usually be able to tell you, as they like nothing more than to keep up to date with new trends. They also like to know everything that is going on in the world, and often take an avid interest in the news and current affairs.
In a long-term adult relationship, the Cancerian Rooster is an incredibly private person. They crave immensely close partners, who will share their desire to share everything intimately. They prefer to keep their personal life separate from all other areas of their life, and expect their partners to adopt the same attitude. They are deeply hurt by hearing that shared confidences have been broken. They put a lot of trust in their partner to maintain privacy and not discuss their joint relationship with anyone else.
On the downside, the Cancerian Rooster can be obstinate, bossy and highly critical when upset. If their usual balance of cheeriness is disturbed, their soft natures become awkward, irritable and blunt. It does take a lot to unbalance the Rooster's sprightly temperament, so this weakness is not seen often. If an incident upsets and alters the Cancerian Rooster's mood, they will sometimes need another shock to snap them out of it. This does not have to be dramatic; it can just be as simple as reminding them of their responsibilities, or giving them a cuddle.
