Rooster Years

The rooster year is a great year for hard-workers and those looking to get ahead by overcoming challenges and giving it their all. It is not a good year for deceitful people or tricksters. People are generally helpful during rooster years, but this is a year for individuals to get ahead independently from others. Relationships and partnerships may suffer during these years.
