In ancient Chinese astrology, the Rooster is known for his showy, loud character, and also for his tendency to be critical and stubborn. A person born under the Western astrological sun sign of Capricorn is perceived to be determined and strong-willed. So, a Capricorn born in the Year of the Rooster will usually be a driven and persistent personality. A Capricorn Rooster tends to always know what he wants in life and will not compromise. He or she is most often highly decisive, and extremely set and immutable in their ways. Once a Capricorn Rooster decides on something, it is almost impossible to change his mind.
These Capricorns are strong personalities who tend to create their own set of standards and ideas about the world, then stick to them. Capricorn Roosters are exceptionally independent, but not forceful, and they prefer to make their own decisions. As these individuals are so unchangeable, they can sometimes portray themselves as cold and detached emotionally. This is often a false impression, as inside these people are nearly always as warm and sincere as they are obstinate. A Capricorn Rooster has a soft center and an affectionate and passionate side under all that inflexibility and stubbornness.
The Capricorn Rooster is happiest when he or she is doing something constructive, as most of them feel the need to keep busy. These are not lazy individuals and they are fairly ambitious, so they are given to studying if not working, and vice versa. A Capricorn Rooster personality has a neat, no-nonsense approach to everything, and you know where you stand with them. They do not attempt to hide their inflexible characters, so you will usually know before you ask them something what their answer will be. They tend to be as fixed and unmoving in their thoughts and opinions as they are in all their other mannerisms.
The changeless but amiable personality of the Capricorn Rooster individual is quite easy to get along with. These people like the company of others, but are more likely to be happier in small groups and one-on-one relationships. The Rooster's flamboyancy is barely evident in these Capricorns. It can occasionally materialize as the Capricorn Rooster feeling the need to take great pride in his or her appearance. In soulmate relationships, these personalities seek someone who will not try to change them, but accept them completely as they are. Also, they search for partners who can reach their inner emotions and help them relax.
Weaknesses in the Capricorn Rooster personality include moodiness, a bit of a temper and restlessness. These unfavorable characteristics will usually surface when a Capricorn Rooster is very bored or someone has really upset them in some way. Their normal relatively easygoing demeanor will become grumpy and irritable. Sometimes, if they find something interesting to do, they can be distracted and snap out of bad moods. The same usually also applies if they get an apology, although in this case it may take a bit longer to reverse their mood.
