2017 - The year of the Rooster

THE ROOSTER
2029, 2017, 2005, 1993, 1981, 1969, 1957, 1945

Direct, talented and capable, roosters are deep thinkers. They are best described as eccentric with strange flights of fancy. Externally, they are radian creatures who enjoy the limelight. They are astute, organised, detailed and meticulous and, will call a spade. Ambitions run high in them and they will work to make it happen. Nothing can match the rooster's resilience in life and it's ability to spring back into action each time. But they can become cocky, bossy and blunt.
They don't care much for subtleties and if they occupy seats of authority, will exhibit tyrannical qualities. Roosters do not know how to unwind and seem forever busy, though mostly they seem to be pecking away at imaginary issues. Their flashy extravagance and need to be recognised often incur the fire of others.

Type of Rooster   Year of Birth   Characteristics
         
Wood Rooster   1945, 2005   These Roosters love joking around. They feel emotions strongly and crave affection. But they should learn to become more independent and face difficulties without relying on others. They are quite fortunate with wealth. Even if there are losses, gains follow close behind.
         
Fire Rooster   1957, 2017   These Roosters have strong time management skills and are trustworthy. They feel like they owe something if they don’t finish something in a timely manner. It’s tiring but this is what makes them happy. They have rocky relationships, but things settle down around their middle ages.
  xx   xx  
Earth Rooster   1969, 2029   These Roosters are active. They love going on outings with friends. Patient and reliable, they gain trust easily. Everything is smooth in their career life. No efforts go to waste and they’ll gain satisfying results. However, they must be careful not to become too proud.
         
Gold Rooster   1921, 1981   These Roosters are very decisive and set off with a clear destination in mind. They think logically and are quite popular. However, Roosters with power will find it hard to connect well with co-workers. For true success in the workplace, they must learn to communicate and socialize well.
         
Water Rooster   1933, 1993   These Roosters are proud but don’t show off. They are intuitive and love beautiful things. They receive support and understanding from their leaders. These Roosters work well with others and will enjoy a happy retirement.

They don’t get sick very often because they tend to fight illness fairly well. Even when they do become ill, they feel better quickly. Roosters are a little sensitive, and they feel stressed and moody at times.

Career: Roosters are more motivated than other animals in the Vietnamese zodiac, making their careers a priority in their lives. They are hard working, multi-talented and can deal with different jobs. Good career choices for roosters are newsreader, sales person, restaurant owner, hairdresser, public relations officer, farmer, athlete, teacher, waiter, journalist, travel writer, dentist, surgeon, financial adviser, bank manager, accountant, soldier, fireman, security guard, and police officer.

    Rooster and Snake: This is an excellent union. Both are ambitious, methodical, and attentive to details. They may not appear to be romantic couple, but work great in accumulating wealth in life, and they will achieve happiness in marriage.
     

Words of Caution:    

  The Rooster and the Cat are highly incompatible.
There is no common ground between the two for a relationship. Compared to the Rooster, the Cat is a pure dreamer and does not pursue hard to his or her dreams. The Rooster will practically drive the Cat into hiding.

The date of the Vietnamese New Year is determined by the Vietnamese calendar, a lunar calendar. The same calendar is used in countries that have adopted the Confucian and Buddhism tradition and in many cultures influenced by the Vietnamese. Vietnamese New Year starts on the first day of the new year containing a new moon (some sources even include New Year's Eve) and ends on the Lantern Festival fourteen days later. This occurs around the time of the full moon as each lunation is about 29.53 days in duration. In the Gregorian calendar, the Vietnamese New Year falls on different dates each year, on a date between January 21 and February 21.
