The Year of the Rooster
Even though it’s the year of the Rooster it is likely that 2017 will not be particularly favorable for Rooster people. Even though 2017 won’t be as hard on them as it will be on some of the other animal signs, their horoscope shows that Roosters will find themselves confronted with setbacks that might hinder their professional growth, give rise to problems in their romantic relationships, lead to financial loss, or cause them to experience intense stress-induced mood swings. In any case, the year of the Rooster is bound to bring about major changes in their lives. As regards those born under other animal signs, 2017 will teach them the importance of being meticulous, leading an orderly life and planning ahead. If you’re single, the year of the Rooster will present you with the opportunity to explore many romantic options, and there’s a good chance you will eventually meet “the one” and start your own family. If you’re already romantically involved with someone, the high fertility of the Rooster is quite likely to translate into the birth of a child. Seeing that the Rooster also represents communality and gregariousness, the year of the Rooster is also bound to lead to the broadening of your social circle and prove particularly auspicious for the establishment of business partnerships and the joint pursuit of business endeavors. At the same time, though, you will have to make sure to always prioritize your family’s well-being above all else; to be careful in your choices and willing to work hard even when your efforts don’t seem to bear fruit; to remain focused on the big picture at all times; to err on the side of caution and to set feasible, realistic goals. As long as you keep your feet firmly planted on the ground, avoid making reckless or ill-advised decisions, and remain loyal to your principles, 2017 is bound to bring you happiness and joy according to your horoscope.
People born under the Chinese zodiac sign of Rooster are extremely observant, always alert to their surroundings, highly perceptive and very prudent in their choices. Roosters know how to exercise good judgment. They tend to err on the side of caution, weigh the pros and cons of every course of action available to them, and base their decisions on carefully thought-out conclusions. They are endowed with acute intuition, as well as with a sharp, dry sense of humor that occasionally borders on the sarcastic. Roosters usually thrive on other people’s attention and admiration. They have great confidence in their skills and talents, which makes them fearless in the face of challenge. They are diligent in their work, self-reliant, resourceful, self-assertive, daring, straightforward, talkative and naturally attractive. Their tendency to be idealistic in their pursuits often makes others support and root for them. Rooster people often become trend-setters according to their horoscope. They are early birds and usually love travelling because it gives them the opportunity to explore new horizons and satisfy their thirst for novel experiences. They don’t form their views based on what others think; they rarely shy away from expressing their opinion, even if it is an unpopular one. Sometimes, they can be self-absorbed and arrogant.
Roosters are sometimes faced with problems in their romantic relationships because they tend to be argumentative and quarrelsome. Therefore, the degree of their compatibility with people born under other animal signs largely depends on their ability and willingness to keep this tendency in check and other events affecting their horoscope at the given time. Moreover, Roosters occasionally struggle with intimacy. At the same time, they usually like to take care of their appearance, which works in their favor when it comes to their romantic life.
