The general image of people born under the Year of the Rooster, is of always being hardworking, resourceful, confident and talented.

In addition, their active, talkative and engaging ways make them popular with people.

They are happiest when they are in company, enjoying the spotlight.

Sometimes, they are seen as being vain and arrogant, with a tendency to brag about their achievments.

The Year of the Rooster will be a powerful one, with no middle of the road when it comes to moving forward.

This year, impressions count, and you will want to look your best, and be clear on your intentions concerning love, money, and business.

Stick to practical and well-proven paths to ensure success, rather than undergoing any risky ventures.

There may be a little bit of drama in your relationships, and younger Roosters may have a change in their love relationships due to their restlessness.

If you wish to maintain your current relationship, try to keep a cool head and be reasonable to your partner’s wishes.

Try not to dwell on the past, as this is the beginning of a new 12-year cycle for you.

Now is the time to plant new seeds, and to have big plans for your future growth.

Chinese Horoscopes are determined by the Moon's motion through the Zodiac rather than by Sun Signs, and there are no equivalent constellations as in Western Astrology.

The Chinese New Year (Lunar New Year) is celebrated on the second New Moon (after the winter solstice) between January and February and ends on the Full Moon 15 days later.

The 15th day of the new year is called the Lantern Festival, which is celebrated at night with lantern displays and children carrying lanterns in a parade.

The Chinese zodiac signs are determined by the lunar year in which you were born.
The Chinese believe the animal ruling one's birth year has a profound influence on personality, and destiny.
The saying is: "This animal hides in your heart.

People born during one of the animal's years are said to inherit distinctive characteristics of that animal.
The signs repeat every 12 years.

Find your Chinese Zodiac sign below.

Please remember the Chinese New Year is based on the phases of the moon, and is celebrated on the second New Moon (after the winter solstice) between January and February and brings in a CHANGE of signs.

So if you were born between Feb 15th 1991 and Feb 3rd 1992 you would be a Goat, or born between Feb 4th 1992 and Jan 22nd 1993 a Monkey.

You see the second New Moon of 1992 (after the winter solstice) started on the 3rd of February at 19:01 pm GMT.
