What is the Year of the Rooster?


In the Chinese horoscope, the rooster is the tenth sign. According to myth, the Jade Emperor invited the animals to his party. Meanwhile, the rooster was with other animals fighting evil spirits when the Jade Emperor’s invitation came.

The 2020 Chinese horoscope of the rooster advices that he devotes a lot of his time to his relationship with others. Whatever decisions he must make with regards to finances, career, family and health, he must analyze whether it has a positive influence effect on his relationship with family, friends and colleagues. Sometimes, if these horoscope advices go unheeded, the dominoes will know rapidly, one after the other, in a disastrous manner.

The rooster has an ego that is sometimes unreasonable. He walks with a flair that pretentiously displays his colorful feathers. He despises looking down on the floor and instead looks forward with his/her chin up, ready to take on anyone. As he goes about this self-esteem issue, he is well-dressed and dashing and give those models on the catwalk a run for their money.

One thing that the rooster is always up for the challenge are arguments and debates. He doesn’t run away from the challenge of talking and defending his causes and passions. That’s why, the rooster’s temperament is suited for the profession of a lawyer, philosopher, professor, lobbyist, marketer or advertiser.

The rooster might be argumentative and will not rest his case for what he believes in, but he is extremely conservative and old fashioned. He is also conscientious of his promises and he will do his best to fulfill them.

The rooster is family oriented and if possible, wants to have as many children as possible. One reason for this is the rooster wants as many people as possible to back him up with his beliefs, principles, and decisions. And he believes the best allies are family members.

The rooster is a complicated person and may appear to have a strong personality. But deep inside, he needs validation. He requires a lot of I LOVE YOUs from his loved ones to move on with his life.

The rooster’s lucky crystals are aquamarine and turquoise. Mandarin ducks will protect him against temptations to commit adultery, thus ensuring a healthy romantic relationship with his partner.

Essential oils and purifying herbs are important this year 2020 for ensuring the rooster’s perfect health.

The rooster should have a crystal tree with a design of his choice around his home or office. This tree is a magnet for happiness and prosperity.

If the rooster needs to go somewhere, his lucky routes are to the west, southwest and northeast. And he should take heed of the numbers 3, 5 and 8 because they are lucky digits to him. The unlucky numbers are 2 and 6.

In the second quarter of 2020, from April to June, if the rooster is unattached, he or she should be sensitive to feelers in the environment for the RIGHT PERSON because that person should be just right beside him and he ignored her! For the rooster who is attached, spice up your love life with more exerted effort than before. Don’t let your loved one feel isolated or unattended to.

Planetary alignments in the third quarter (July to September), will be fortunate for the unattached rooster. But attached roosters, beware, in this period. A lot of temptations and deviations will abound that will try to destroy your relationship which you built out of passion and sweat.

The fourth quarter 2020, for the attached rooster, will be a period of calmness and tenderness. It will be smooth sailing. For the unattached, be on the lookout. The right one will just be around the trenches.

Overall, in 2020, Love will be the event which has most fortune for the rooster. Career, wealth, and health will take a backseat to love, but it doesn’t mean that these three important life aspects will be left unattended.

Xing Tai Sui (year of trouble). 2020 is the year of the rat and it is a year of trouble for the rooster.

Being self-centered and wanting a lot of interest on self, the rooster will not be gaining any ground in 2020. The rooster should be able to adjust his personality to the demands of the times. Instead, his best features of loyalty and punctuality should be paraded out in the year of Xing Tai Sui. Or some folks would visit and worship in the temple before Lichun or Beginning of Spring (February 4) to burn joss papers.

Tai Sui, or the Grand Duke of Jupiter, is said to be offended by the rooster as well as by the rabbit, horse, goat, and the rat itself in the year 2020 (which is the year of the rat). This means these animals’ energy fields are negatively affected by the unstable energy of Jupiter. These zodiac signs are expected to suffer misfortune and bad luck in 2020. To appease Tai Sui, before Chinese New Year, people need to go to the temple to worship, regardless if their zodiac sign got the wrath of Tai Sui.

Can you believe, the internet music app, Spotify, has entered the Chinese horoscope bandwagon Lin, the famous Singaporean singer, is a rooster and he has a playlist in Spotify to represent his zodiac sign. Likewise, other Chinese zodiac signs are represented thru other Asian celebrities. This goes to show that Chinese culture is very influential, and Spotify wants a piece of the billion people pie.

Speaking of commercialism, Marvel has also jumped in. Its editors have assigned one superhero to be linked to each Chinese Zodiac sign. In the case of the rooster, it has been linked to the super genius hero Amadeus Cho. He is described as multi-talented, philosophical and hardworking. He first appeared in the Marvel comic Amazing Fantasy #15 in the year 2005.

The rooster is also distinctly linked to the China arts scene. The Chinese Oscars, uniquely called The China Golden Rooster Awards give recognition to outstanding achievements in various Chinese media during a particular year. And China has been doing this since 1981 when this award body was established. The China Golden Rooster Awards are sponsored by the Chinese Federation of Literary Art Circles and the China Film Association. The Chinese take their art seriously and the rooster has got something to do with it.

The rooster is also associated with positive vibe Chinese idioms. Like “wen ji qi woo” which means to get up to practice martial arts on hearing the crow of the rooster and “jin ji bao xiao” which means the golden rooster crows at dawn.

There are also negative vibe Chinese idioms connected to roosters/chickens. “Ji fei dan da” refers to the chicken has flown away, and the eggs are broken. Means a lose-lose situation. “Ji dan li zhou gu tou” means looking for bones in an egg (a metaphor of being deliberately critical).

Which is to say in conclusion, that the rooster in the Chinese Zodiac horoscope has good and bad qualities. Loyal and punctual but has fragile health. Not very wise in money matters but very strong when it comes to principles and very family oriented. The rooster deserves a book to explain the whole spectrum of its complicated personality.
