Year of the Rooster: Personality horoscope
Although the Rooster doesn't excel in tact and diplomacy, he is gifted with exemplary righteousness and loyalty. Very precise in everything he does, he is very fond of small details and nothing escapes his piercing eyes.
One can often cross the Rooster in the world of entertainment. He can easily become a celebrity adviser, meticulously taking care of the day-to-day management of his famous client. Attracted by art, if the Rooster loves the backstage, he doesn't disdain the opportunity to find himself in the spotlight.
His feet firmly anchored to the ground, the Rooster has exceptional vitality and seduction ability as long as he manages to keep control of the situation.
The strong personality of the Rooster might suggest that he is disrespectful with his neighbor, while nothing would be less true! Although it must be admitted that the Rooster doesn't mince his words and that he can't stand being contradicted, just as he won't allow anyone abuse one of his weaknesses with impunity. As a reader who was born in other years of the Chinese calendar, remember that the manifestations of benevolence and empathy expressed by a Rooster are often only a clever excuse to better direct those around him.
The Rooster uses this facade to make you believe in his infallibility and his sense of justice, while deep inside himself, his heart is heavy with doubts. When he gets jostled, the Rooster responds frankly and without detours, not hesitating if necessary to hurt the feelings of his friends or his partner, and only in order to have the last word.
If the Rooster seems unconventional or even libertine at first, he is actually rather conservative and even sometimes reactionary.
In her private life, a Rooster woman has great potential to become an exemplary grandmother, just as she has effectively and brilliantly organized the education of her own children.
Finally, the Rooster is a nice friend, loyal, very sensitive to flattery while remaining funny and capable of self-mockery, as long as it doesn't involve his appearance or fashion tastes. His emotional strength largely outweighs his pride.

Rooster's 2023 Chinese horoscope
Chinese horoscope of the Rooster during the Year of the Rabbit 2023, in love, work, career, health, luck, studies and travels
The Chinese horoscope 2023 announces a mixed year for the Rooster, whose pride risks taking a hit. Many small difficulties will follow one another throughout the Year of the Rabbit 2023. This succession of obstacles will make the Rooster realize that he is not always right.
According to the 2023 career and work horoscope, the Rooster will have to evolve in atmospheres that are too calm and greyish for his taste. However, he will have to take care to preserve his professional assets in order not to lose hard-won achievements. A change of job is also not a good omen in the Year of the Rabbit for the Rooster, who risks overwork in the event of too hasty a decision. The Rooster will particularly monitor his physical shape in 2023 to prevent the accumulation of any form of fatigue. The advice of wise professionals will even be essential in order to limit the consequences of possible bad career decisions.
Small disappointments occurring here and there in everyday life will irritate the Rooster if he takes them too seriously. However, thanks to the Water element (main element of the year 2023), the Rooster has the potential to bring a little color and transformation to the rhythm of his professional life. The Year of the Rabbit provides him with the essential tools to sculpt his existence and make it more in line with his expectations. But first, the Rooster will have to empty his bag to restore order. Identification, extraction and evacuation will be the good habits to adopt throughout the year if he wishes to get out of the doldrums that surrounds him and successfully take the path of redemption.
According to the 2023 money horoscope, this year of wavering and hesitation is likely to cause slight financial losses, despite all the efforts made. The Rooster will probably find that it will be more advantageous to limit his risky investments rather than to try his luck at all costs, given this period of the Chinese calendar which is not the most favorable for him. Moreover, uncertainties about the results of his recent actions may also darken an already bleak picture. Unresolved administrative issues can also catch up with the Rooster and hinder his progress. A person from the past may even reappear to hold him accountable. In any case, despite the obstacles encountered, the Rooster will keep his accounts up to date and manage to hold his tongue so as not to be surprised by the consequences of his past carelessness. Despite the frustrations engendered by the Year of the Rabbit 2023, the lessons learned from his failures will serve as a shield for the Rooster for years to come. Without forgetting that any well-considered action will bear fruit sooner or later.
Regarding the 2023 love horoscope, the year will fortunately include cycles favorable to the Rooster. As long as he manages to maintain relative stability throughout the year, even in the most delicate phases of his sentimental life, the Rooster should manage to get by. A possibility of rupture or short-term isolation should be anticipated. His opinions, when too rigid, can make him seem like a narcissist who doesn't care about the feelings of others. The Rabbit watches the Rooster and punishes him for his excesses of language within the couple. Also, the Rooster is invited to take care of the quality of his mode of communication. Among singles, it is not the dating opportunities that will be lacking. However, in the majority of cases, the Rooster will have to lower his expectations if he wishes to experience a few moments of ephemeral pleasure. As for the prospect of a long-term relationship, luck will not be on his side in 2023. Always driven by a critical spirit sharpened by vexation, he risks scaring off suitors who are looking for a love wrapped in softness and suppleness. In 2023, the more the single Rooster will be demanding and looking at the faults of others, the more he will find himself trapped in situations that he does not like. It is better not to expect too much from the Year of the Rabbit 2023 and prefer to be discreet so as not to stir up contradictory feelings that could compromise the well-being of the years to come.

The Fire Rooster, while gifted for management, tends however to only trust himself, and he's usually reluctant to delegate his responsibilities to others. The Fire Rooster, suspicious and pessimistic by nature, grants more easily his confidence to those who, in accordance with his principles, will be ready to follow him blindly in his ambitions of social peace for the collective interest.

Personality: The native of the Year of the Earth Rooster is an ascetic and a free-thinker, whose sharp critical sense is matched only by his passion for truth. A maniac collector, he can decide overnight to embark on the exhaustive classification of a family of rare insects of the Amazon, or start the collection of ancient stamps from Singapore. In reality, nothing can stop him in his constant quest for knowledge. The Earth Rooster differs from his fellows by his disinterest for fashion. Precise and studious in what he undertakes, the Earth Rooster is promised to brilliant and lasting successes. Gifted with a surprising humility for a Rooster, the Earth Rooster often puts his eloquence and exemplarity at the service of noble causes, in education and humanitarian missions. Loved and feared at the same time, the wit and the flair of the Earth Rooster open the way for professions such as journalism, private investigation, the army, or even to become a bodyguard, a fireman, an hotel manager or a bar owner.

Dreams of glory and a thirst for wealth are the main fuel of his disproportionate ambition. His ego, his inhibition, and his clinical analysis of events, offer the Metal Rooster the regrettable ability to easily cool the feelings of his loved ones towards him. The Metal Rooster often considers a career in politics, social sciences, and any trades asking for strategic and organizational qualities. Smart and resourceful, he can also be rigid and stinging in his relationship to others.
Metal Rooster's Pillar of Destiny

A real magnet surrounded by many friends, endowed with a remarkable eloquence and an easy contact, the Water Rooster is a companion of choice. Is it worth mentioning that he's the most open and least conservative of all the Roosters? As talented for speech as for writing, the Water Rooster is also animated by an unstoppable and persuasive force.
