The Year of the Rooster

The Chinese calendar follows the moon and divides the years into groups of twelve.  Each year is named for an animal.  People born in that year are believed to share different traits.

The Rooster is a hard worker; shrewd and definite in decision making often speaking his mind.  Because of this you tend to seem boastful to others.  You are a dreamer, flashy dresser and extravagant to an extreme.  Born under this sign you should be happy as a restaurant owner, publicist, soldier, or world traveler.
