The Year of Monkey is coming to an end and the 2017 Chinese Horoscope, the Year of the Fire Rooster, is kicking in starting January 28th, 2017.
According to the Chinese zodiac, Rooster Years are a blend of righteousness and justice, bombast and logistical efficiency. That being said, public and private administration jobs, military careers, or police jobs would be highly favored this year.
Traditionally, it is said that the rooster is the dawn announcer waking people up on time in the early morning. It is also said that the rooster can foresee what is coming in the future, so it is regarded as God’s ambassador. For this belief, the people born in the Year of Rooster are considered to have the ability to notice what will happen around them.
The Chinese astrology indicates that Rooster People are very observant, hardworking, resourceful, active, hilarious, courageous, multi-talented, and very confident about themselves. The center of attention and attractive appearance are the propensities they pursue although they are often talkative, outspoken, frank, vain, or boastful. Their popularity amongst the crowd is attributed to these properties, and practically, Roosters are happiest when they are surrounded by others, whether at a party or just a social gathering at any occasion. Roosters are also sharp dressers, no matter in casual clothes or a suit with a variety of colors. They really enjoy attention.
It is advised that when people build relationships with Roosters, they should be careful of being annoyed by Roosters bragging about themselves and their achievements. Roosters have no harms, but their boastful attitudes could cause a clash amongst others. Some meddlesome individuals may find it hard to be on good terms with Roosters.
What would be the best jobs and careers for Roosters?
For the Rooster being the sign of dawn awakening, triumph and success could be only achieved at the price of hard work and patience in 2017. Good careers Roosters would seek are: restaurant owner, hairdresser, sales associate, public relations officer, teacher, journalist, dentist, surgeon, soldier, firefighter, security guard, or police officer. They should spend more time and energy on their career development, which would be better for them in order to avoid disruptions within their relationships.
However, if you are single, this is a very good year to start a new relationship. What you need to stay on guard for is romances that could have grown into solid marriage over time could well be cut short for some reasons such as professional or a family moving to another state or country, getting out of control for the new lovebirds. Without regard to that point, you, the Rooster, would be golden.
