According to Chinese astrology, a Rooster year is anything but laid-back. Much like its symbolic bird, it’s a year that will be a real wake-up call. That being said, Rooster years are rarely ever boring, so it'll be a year with a lot of action. That means the year will see its fair share of both drama and productivity. The best advice is to stay organized and don't slack off: "The Rooster favors those who put in the hard work and stick to a plan."
Although we're transitioning from the Year of the Monkey to the Year of the Rooster in 2017, this year will share its representative element with 2016: fire. That's right, this will be yet another super-charged year. The same element can affect each sign differently. The Fire Rooster, specifically, is an already-intense sign with an extra side of focus and drive. To say that this year will move at top speed is an understatement.
So, if you were expecting to get a break this year, luck might not be on your side. But that doesn't mean 2017 will be totally thankless, either. Take it as a challenge to meet — and even exceed at — hard work, planning and, hope will help you succeed.
"The Rooster respects those with strong opinions and a good work ethic.
Be thoughtful about what’s in your heart and go with it."
Are you a Rooster? (1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2017)
They are deep thinkers considered to be honest, bright, communicative, ambitious, capable and warm-hearted. They have strong self-respect and seldom rely on others. As most roosters are born pretty or handsome, they prefer to dress up. They have a quick mind and hot temper. They like to be busy and neat. They are not reluctant to fall behind others and hate dawdlers.
They might be enthusiastic about something quickly, but soon might be impassive. They are often a bit eccentric and have difficulty relating with others. They are critical and think they are always right. Like their fortunes, their emotions swing from very high very slow. They can be positive but selfish, caustic and too outspoken. They are narrow-minded and vain. They probably refuse suggestions but would like to lecture others. If they can overcome their arrogance being sincerely in speaking, they will make more progress.
