People born in the Year of the Rooster like strutting like a rooster and are brave, proud, conspicuous and outspoken. They long for acknowledgement and like being noticed, and are industrious and vivacious. Roosters need an audience and admirers asking for their advice. As they cannot tolerate being contradicted, they also have enemies. They are uncompromising in disputes and often offend their opponents. Roosters read a lot and take notice of novelties. The signs of the Chinese zodiac are repeated every 12 years. The last Year of the Rooster was in 2005 and the next will be in 2029.
