2016 has come and gone and it is finally a new year! But did you know that there is another new year coming up? On Saturday it is the Chinese New Year. And did you know that there is a 12 year Chinese zodiac cycle? And as a result, 2017 is the year of the Rooster.
I am sure you are wondering where I am going with this! So here we go, the Year of the Rooster is exciting to me because I am a Rooster! I was born in 1981 which was a Rooster year. I have really enjoyed learning more about the Rooster and how I embody the Roosters characteristics to me. So I wanted to share a few things I have learned!

Characteristics of a Rooster
People born in Rooster years are observant, honest, punctual, hardworking, and ambitious. Roosters tend to be very active and healthy. They enjoy sports such as running, biking, swimming, and hiking. In addition, Roosters can be sensitive and get stressed at times.
Umm, it is slightly scary to see how closely the characteristics of a Rooster describe me! I am so ambitious that I am often called crazy or nuts! I wasn’t always healthy and active but now I can’t image my life without them. Running, biking, and swimming are actives Roosters enjoy, I find that funny since I love doing triathlons! And yes, I am sensitive and can get stressed.
Relationships with Roosters
Roosters are devoted and loyal friends! However, sensitive individuals may find Roosters to be difficult to get along with as Roosters like to brag about their accomplishments and sometimes even themselves. As for love, Roosters are most compatible with the Ox or Snake. And are least compatible with a Rat, Rabbit, Horse, or Pig.
Just another thing that confirms I am a Rooster! My relationships are a high priority for me so I am an extremely devoted and loyal friend! However, my husband always reminds me that not everyone to hear me brag about how many miles I ran or how many races I have done. I actually laughed out loud when I saw who Roosters are compatible with romantically. My husbands Chinese zodiac animal is a Snake. I guess we are a match made in heaven!
The only thing I see wrong with this whole Rooster thing is that in real life I am deathly afraid of Roosters (and chicken). I remember being a little girl and seeing my grandfathers rooster run my cousin down and attack him. Holy scary!!! However, I suppose one could say that my grandfathers rooster embodied the characteristics of a Rooster – hardworking and ambitious!
