It’s New Years somewhere already so…
Happy New Year
Chinese year 4703, Year of The Rooster, February 9, 2005
Twelve animals symbolize the twelve signs of the Chinese horoscope. Because the Chinese culture uses a lunar calendar based on the moon’s cycle, the dates that animal signs encompass change yearly. The year 2005 is the Year of the Rooster.
It is believed that the Chinese Lunar Calendar dates back to 2637 BC. Legend has it that the Lord Buddha summoned all the animals to come to him before he departed from Earth. Only twelve of the animals came to bid him farewell, so Buddha honoured each of them with a year. The order was taken from the sequence in which they appeared to him – first the Rat, then the Ox, the Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Ram, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Boar. It is believed that a person takes on the characteristics of the animal belonging to the year they were born. There is also a cycle of five elements – wood, fire, earth, metal and water.
Rooster people are very observant. And most of the time, they are very accurate and precise with their observation. Perhaps, you can say that Roosters have a very keen "sixth-sense". With Roosters, what you see is exactly what you get. There are no hidden depths to the Rooster’s character: he is neither complicated nor profound, rather, he is very forthright and straightforward.
The rooster likes to be noticed and flattered. He might dress a little flashily with this in mind, but in his heart, he is completely conservative. Roosters always appear attractive and beautifully turned out. They are sociable and love to receive attention.
Believe it or not, it is not an easy task to fool the Rooster. His mind is cautious and skeptical, with this perceptive gift, Roosters make excellent trouble shooters, detectives, doctors, nurses and psychiatrists. Roosters are always up, out and doing. You rarely see a relaxed rooster that sits quietly in the livingroom, doing nothing. They are also multitalented, and can become accomplished in many different ways.
Most Roosters are extremely conscious about clothing and appearance. They may appear conservative but are obsessed with their look – they can spend hours standing in front of the mirrors and will not even wink when they spend $500 for a dress. That doesn’t mean they don’t care about money, in fact, they love to compare prices and even if the bargain is only few cents or few dollars cheaper, they will be satisfied.
Though sharp, practical and resourceful, the Rooster also likes to dream. And because he likes to dream, he will disappointed the loved one, for the reality will never match up to the dreams he would like to share with her. Although he really is sincere about those dreams.
Rooster make great hosts and adore entertaining. The main virtue in the Rooster character is loyalty: they make devoted friends. They always keep their promises and are always true to their word. When Roosters love and admire someone, they will even catch the moon just to keep them happy.
