Furthermore, those born under the Rooster zodiac are active, amusing, and popular. They are also talkative, outspoken, frank, open, honest, and loyal individuals.
“They like to be the centre of attention and always appear to be attractive,” the astrologers said.
They continued: “Roosters are happiest when they are surrounded by others, whether at a party or just a social gathering. They enjoy the spotlight and will exhibit their charm on any occasion.
“Roosters expect others to listen to them while they speak, and can become agitated if they don’t. Vain and boastful, Roosters like to brag about themselves and their accomplishments.
“Their behaviour of continually seeking the unwavering attention of others annoys people around them at times.”
Lucky colours and numbers
The Rooster’s lucky colours are gold, brown, and yellow. Meanwhile, their lucky numbers are five, seven, and eight.
According to astrologers, they should also look out for their lucky flowers – the gladiola and the cockscomb.

Each animal in the zodiac has its unique characteristics and not all animals get on with each other. Some are more compatible with one another than others.
The Rooster is most compatible with the Ox, the Dragon, or the Snake. It does not get on as well with the Rat, or the Rabbit.
As for what lies ahead for the Rooster, China Highlight’s astrologers said: “As 2023 is a year of the Rabbit, Roosters, you will suffer from opposition to Tai Sui (the ‘age star’) in 2023, and your luck will be particularly unfavourable.
“You should maintain an optimistic attitude, be prepared to meet various challenges, and put in more effort than last year.
“You are predicted to have poor career development prospects in 2023. Studying a lot in your spare time and learning the knowledge and skills related to your current work can bring you better career development luck in the future.
“The wealth projection for you Rooster people in 2023 is extremely unfavorable because of the impact of your career problems on your earnings.
“The love fortunes of you Rooster people will offer up a great turning point, and your love life will be highly enriched.”
