Chinese Astrology: Yi Yu year, meaning Singing Roster.
The Sixty-Year Cycle Chinese Calendar: Earthly Branch Rooster and Heavenly Stem Wood.
According to the Chinese horoscope, Roosters are diligent and hardworking people. Roosters usually show great intelligence and drive at an early age, and they often find themselves in high positions where they are managing people quite a bit older than they are. Although Roosters do deserve acclaim for their accomplishments, they can put others off by insisting on bragging about all of the things that they have done.
Roosters do tend to crave the spotlight, and dress in flashy clothes and colors to make sure that they are noticed as soon as they walk into a room. Roosters pay close attention to appearances, and so they are always well groomed in styles that suit their looks and body types. Roosters really thrive on attention, and they usually have admirers that are willing to give it to them.
Roosters have high standards of the people around them, and can be a bit judgemental. The fact is, this Chinese Zodiac sign has even higher standards that they expect of themselves. Roosters take on project after project, and pack their schedules completely full, but they manage to devote full time and energy to every task. Roosters never slack and their results are always the envy of others.
Someone born as a Rooster under the Chinese horoscope is a very honest person.
A Rooster will never mislead you, which makes Roosters very reliable business partners. The other side of this is that a Rooster will never hold back if he or she thinks that you are not performing up to expectations. This can cause friction between Roosters and their acquaintances, who can become offended at the blunt honesty. That is why Roosters often work better independently than in teams.
When someone born under the sign of the Rooster in the Chinese Zodiac is tempered by the Element of Wood, he or she becomes far less individualistic. In fact, a Wood Rooster's entire personality is aligned to being social and caring about others. A Wood Rooster likes to work as part of a group or a team, and his or her intelligence and creativity allows him or her to divvy up the work to suit everyone's strengths. The result is a better project that is finished on time.
Wood Roosters enjoy having large groups of friends, and are capable of stepping out of the spotlight to let someone else shine. This wins them a lot of friends, even though they still subscribe to the same blunt honesty as the average Rooster.
Wood Roosters care about the rest of the world, and you can often find them working hard and using their organizational talents to help out charities and non profit companies. Wood Roosters sincerely want to make the world a better place, and they have the talents and confidence to take on such a big challenge! Wood Roosters make excellent friends because they will do just about anything for a friend or a loved one, and will work hard and bring all of their talents to bear when they lend a helping hand.
