Roosters are proud, prudent and rather practical. Roosters are observers with logical solutions to every problem for everyone and everything. Roosters are smooth talkers who need to be "in the know" at all times. You like to be in the “thick of things”. Very straightforward, you speak the truth, express yourself freely, always say what is on your mind and you can be counted on to keep your word. You tend to be very private and hide/mask your feelings when you have found true love. Avoid this tendency at all costs. Others find you to be self-centered at times and you must remain open to criticism, especially when you feel it’s ultimately for your own long term benefit, Rooster. 

Though you can be critical at times, you're a warm, loving and generous person at heart. Some people maintain that you can be tough to live and work with. Yet, you secretly desire harmony and smooth relationships with lots of tender loving care. When you have found the right person, you will reciprocate with the most loving and tender acts of kindness in return. Your luckiest time of the day is the early morning and you will tend to marry in your later years.You will eventually attract a trusting partner who will bend over backward to please you.
