Chinese Zodiac


The Rooster is the tenth of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. Monkey, Rooster and Dog were in another country, helping a god defeat evil spirits. After, they set off to the party together. Because they arrived at the same time, the Jade Emperor went by the order they met the god in the other country. Thus, Rooster became tenth.

The Rooster is also associated with the Earthly Branch ( 地支 / dì zhī) yǒu ( ), and the hours 5–7 in the afternoon. In the terms of yin and yang ( 阴阳 / yīn yáng), the Rooster is yin.

Roosters are complex people who seem strong but, deep down, need validation from loved ones.

According to legends, roosters are able to protect against evil spirits. In ancient times, sworn brothers must swear to the heavens, then drip rooster blood into wine and drink it all.

Paired with the Celestial Stems ( 天干 / Tiān gān), there is a 60-year calendrical cycle. Although yǒu is associated with metal, the years also cycle through the five elements of nature ( 五行 / wǔ xíng).

Personality and Characteristics

Roosters really just need loved ones to validate them and encouragement to find themselves.

Careers Fit for Roosters

But Roosters are very serious and earnest with their work. They have professional skills and courage. They make smart choices, but instead of being more careful with important decisions, they often botch them. They also don’t like being ordered around.

Careers that fit Roosters are ones that give them enough space and freedom. It must be difficult enough to challenge them and not let their talent go to waste. Some choices are politicians, diplomats, tour guides and fashion designers.

Being picky eaters is common in all zodiacs, but Roosters are especially so. They are even picky with the food they like to eat. Their diets are influenced by their mood too. Since they often have mood swings, this can lead to problems in the digestive system.

The best way for Roosters to maintain their health is to fix their bad habits and oversensitive personality.


Roosters in the Year of the Rabbit (2023)

The year of 2023 will be polarizing for the Rooster. Owing to the effect of “Fleeting Tai Sui”, you’ll find yourself very happy in love, and very dissatisfied with work development. Ah well, you win some, you lose some!

Please brace yourself for work in 2023, Rooster, because at best, the workplace will be stagnant, at worst, it’ll make you hate your otherwise wonderful life at times throughout the year. There’s no way to sugarcoat this: you could even risk losing your job this year, so do be extra careful and try to add to your skillset if you can through trainings after work. It won’t necessarily happen, but it won’t hurt you to be prepared, either.

At least love will be great for the Rooster in 2023, and will provide a much-needed salve for the headaches you get after a long workday. You should be applauded for never taking your work worries home, but your partner or significant other should also be acknowledged for their soothing effect on you. Don’t you feel rather assured to know that everything’s rosy on the home front, at least?

Well, both the good and the bad will only hold true for this year, and different opportunities and challenges will grace your life in 12 months’ time. In the meanwhile, think of the bad time as an invitation to grow, and the good time as a reward for previous efforts at growth, and you’ll navigate the tricky terrains of 2023 without problem, Rooster!

Love and Relationships in 2023

In the year of 2023, the Rooster will welcome such a 360 turnaround in love, especially if previous years have been disappointing in this sector. Your love life will be enriching, and an anchor to the rest of your life, whether you’re single or already partnered up.

Single Roosters will enjoy attention from many quarters. One person among your friend group may suddenly speak up about their romantic interest in you, or a cutie who accidentally steps on your toe during rush hour in the subway may apologize profusely before asking for your number! Even at work, where things aren’t going great, you’ll likely find a sympathetic or even admiring eye for your grit.

Male Roosters who are looking, in particular, will suddenly find many interested parties around them. You may feel like you just won the love lotteries, but try to stay grounded and know that all you need is one right person, not a dozen!

Take your time getting to know potential suitors, no matter your gender. With all this fresh interest, you could lose sight of who you truly connect with in matters of the heart.

Married or partnered Roosters will enjoy renewed affections with their partners, but watch out that if too many people outside your relationship notice your charms this year, your partner may not take that well! Play the devoted partner, and guard this lovely one in your life. They’re worth so much more than any flitting interest, because they’re the cornerstone to your turbulent life in 2023, and well beyond.

Don’t let the glitters blind you to the blessings that already exist in your life, dear Rooster. It’s not worth it!

Career in 2023

Alright, we might as well dive into the hard conversation, Rooster. Work will be changeable and surprising at best, while at worst it may be downright destructive for your mental health in 2023. But think of it this way, anything that goes wrong is trying to tell you where you can still improve either your approach to work, or else represent a gap in your skillset.

What you can do, in addition to stay nimble on your feet this year, is to strengthen your work relationships. Have more friends than enemies, so if something goes wrong, you’ll find far more people in your quarter and be willing to speak up on your behalf – it could be the difference between “try harder next time” and “you’d best look elsewhere”!

Remember, it’s not so much about working harder this year, rather than working smarter, dear Rooster. If you feel you can’t handle a task, be frank about it and ask for help instead of trying to figure out everything on your own. Similarly, if there are changes in your role that don’t make sense, or you feel unprepared for, speak up and tell the truth. It’s all about setting reasonable expectations in the end.

Don’t let your legendary pride get in the way of growth!

Wealth in 2023

As we said already, work isn’t optimistic for the Rooster in 2023, and your finances will unfortunately follow suit. You could well face a pay cut, or even lose your job and have to go on unemployment for a while. It’s temporary, and will give you a chance to regroup and strategize for the future. Rest assured that this shakeup is for the best in the long-term. It’ll land you somewhere better, even if it doesn’t feel that way for now.

Even if you don’t lose your income, you’re definitely not advised to throw money around. You could lose money in investment, and if you’re not careful, end up in debt by year’s end. Save, and save some more for a rainy day. That’s your only job in money this year, Rooster!

Everyone wants to hear good news, but sometimes it’s equally important to know about anything less than ideal that may be coming down the pipeline, and prepare accordingly. It’s not all a conspiracy theory, Rooster, and we’re not telling you to get out the tinfoil hats.

Education in 2023

Listen, young Rooster. When school doesn’t go as smoothly as you hope in 2023, your first instinct will be to stay up all night and study until your brain goes numb. Usually, we’re all for hard work, but that isn’t likely to play out in your favor this year. It’ll only stress you out more and make you more nervous for any big tests you’ll have to take, and you’ll only do even less well.

Instead, take care of yourself and take some stress off of yourself. Sometimes things go our way, but sometimes they do not. It’s all in the normal course of life. If you fail a big test, or find yourself struggling in a particular class, ask for help from those students who seem to be doing well, or ask your teacher what you can do to improve your performance.

You’re a proud one, but there’s no shame in asking for help!

Health in 2023

Health will be another relatively less than stabilized area in the Rooster’s life in 2023. With all the external pressures going on at work or in school, Roosters will find themselves on a short fuse frequently this year, which may lead to disagreements, quarrels, or even fights for the younger or more impulsive among you. Refrain, please!

Anxiety and pressure tend to exert heavy influence on your digestion and gut health. The blood is simply not going into your organs with all the ruminating you’re doing. Don’t binge eat, in that case, even if you’re stressed, because your digestion will already be rather taxed in 2023. Don’t give it more stressors to worry about!

Our advice for you, Rooster, is to practice temperance in all areas of life in 2023. Staying calm and collected in one area of life – by eating sensibly, exercising frequently, and practicing Tai Chi or meditation which center and ground you – will likely lead other areas to go a little more smoothly.

Roosters in the Year of the Tiger (2022)

The year of 2022 will present fluctuating fortunes for Roosters. They can expect improvements in career and personal finance, especially with the help of generous higher-ups, making this quite a successful year for Roosters in terms of money and status. What could only be dreamed of in previous years will become possible this year, such as a rapid promotion accompanied by a huge increase in salary, or the purchase of real estates that they have saved up for over the last few years.

At the same time, jealous competitors may lurk in the shadows, waiting to supplant Roosters this year, presenting some difficulties and obstacles at work. Their finances may take a dent on account of this. Love will not go as smoothly either, with external factors interfering with Rooster’s own firm and steady heart.

Overall, the year of 2022 will be a rewarding if at times difficult year. At the end of it, Roosters are likely to find themselves miles ahead compared to how they ended 2021, both in worldly gains and in their personal growth and maturation.

Love and Relationships in 2022

Love won’t be terrible for Roosters in 2022, although it won’t be anywhere near as stellar as their career fortune. For those already in a long-term relationship or married, they will not have to prepare for many changes in 2022. Any existing relationship is likely to remain stable. Watch out for tempers and tantrums, however, whether from Roosters themselves or from their partner, as even when they make up, remnant hurt feelings could be there to stay and erupt in the future.

Singles will have better luck in love in 2022. It will be a fruitful year for them. They will meet potential romantic partners, although there will be some difficulties in the process of becoming a couple – perhaps the other person’s parents may object initially, or there may be a rival on the scene. In the end, however, Roosters will triumph with their determination and charm, and find themselves in a passionate romance by the end of the year. Be bold and you will not be disappointed by the results.

Career in 2022

This will be a prosperous year for Roosters in the career department. Over the past few years, Roosters have been acquiring new skills and perfecting their innate abilities so that as they enter 2022 they will be well-placed for meteoric development at work. With the planets’ help, Roosters will feel ready and more capable of action. If they have a solid plan of attack, they will be able to reach each of their major milestones at the end of the year. Good outcomes are almost assured, and even when they experience difficulties, higher-ups will be very likely to lend a helping hand.

There are still some hidden dangers, however, in the form of jealous competitors and unreliable friends. Envy can come from any quarter. This year, Roosters are advised to pay more attention to people who could damage their progress. In the end, everything will be okay for Roosters if they continue to work hard and heed the advice from more experienced mentors. Status, power and a newfound freedom will be their well-deserved rewards.

Wealth in 2022

Roosters’s career advancement will bring an impressive income in 2022, although their expenses will likely increase proportionately, if not more. If they are not careful, they may even suffer unexpected losses such as theft or damaged valuables. In addition, any investment Roosters wants to make may require a second opinion. If there has been a sharp increase in the value of an investment, Roosters are advised not to be greedy but to take some gains for the future.

This year, Roosters will very likely find their appetite for luxuries on the rise. This could be bad for future years if they get used to it because Roosters’s fortune fluctuates a great deal and there may well be a less prosperous time in their near future.

Education in 2022

Younger Roosters will do well in 2022. They will have plenty of opportunities to excel and will work hard by asking questions when they don’t understand something, concentrating in class and mastering what they learn in a timely manner. Because of this, they will do well on major exams in 2022. However, they must learn to manage the famous Rooster pride and not give up studying when their grades improve. Remember that your years in school will be a marathon, Roosters, and one exam will neither break nor make your academic success.

Health in 2022

Roosters’ health will remain relatively stable and uneventful in 2022. But since Roosters will be working extra diligently this year, they may experience a burnout halfway through. The best plan of action for Roosters would be to devote some time to self-care by eating right and getting enough sleep to ensure a steady momentum throughout most of the year. Too much entertainment or too many social gatherings, which Roosters genuinely enjoy, could also be bad for their health this year and distract from their career aspirations. Neither overtax nor overindulge yourself this year, Roosters, and all will be well.
