With the sign of the Rooster there is a tremendous difference between the sexes: While you can find extremely strong female Rooster often the males show a certain eccentricity. Roosters carry - no matter what gender - great energy within themselves with which they get things started and move the world. While the female Rooster uses her energy in a rather discreet way the males usually use big gestures.
Especially men born in the year of the Rooster often aspire with all might the big. They are not easily satisfied and constantly wish to reach more - often more than it does good. In a certain way this is positive because the inner drive to reach more leads to their development not getting stuck. But to have the higher goal constantly in front of the eyes can become quite laborious - especially for the fellow man. Roosters often enter a dream world in which many things they want they already have achieved. The fellowman is then stunned to hear from their great actions but mostly they are found out and seen as an arrogant boaster.
If they enter their fantasy world too much it is to their disadvantage. They lose their positive initiative because in their head they have actually reached everything.
It can be different also with the Rooster and this is proven by the females of this sign. They also have the urge to reach the higher but not to produce themselves like the men. They too realize their goals in a dream world but they do not tell others but simply enjoy the imagination to have reached something. The consequences do go the same direction by losing a bit of the positive drive but they are not as serious as with the male Roosters.
It is the good quality the Rooster possesses that let reach him higher goals. First they do not lack self-confidence. If you do not trust yourself it is rather difficult to reach anything. Especially if you want to motivate other people you need self-confidence. Others will have a hard time to trust if you do not trust yourself. Roosters do not know this problem. However, their self-confidence is partially over the top.
Sometimes the character of the outer Rooster shows in vanity. They like to stand in front of the mirror, polish their appearance and appreciate nice clothes whereas they do not follow fashion so much but rather set trends themselves.
Roosters have many edges which show quite quickly when interacting with other people. The feelings of others towards them tend noticeably towards two clear directions: Either the Rooster is loved or it is hated. In general the Rooster contributes much to having other people's feelings polarized in that way. He is quite tactless. He himself is not sensitive if criticized so he expects it from others as well. The desire to criticize is strong and mostly it hits the nail on the head because the Rooster has the ability to analyse situations, people and character quite well. If Roosts hold up the mirror it can be too much for others.
Yet people born in the year of the Rooster have more friends than foes; first they are quite amusing and funny which helps over an embarrassing moment and second Roosters are able to criticize themselves. Thus others do not take too much offence when they are criticised.
If Roosters use their power to work on the points they have self-critically noticed and if they try to bring more warmth into interpersonal relationships instead of negative critic it will be a lot easier to them to reach their goals.

Until a firm relationship, Roosters have to be patient. They are quite demanding partners, not only because of the already mentioned lust to criticise but also because of their unpredictable change of emotions.
It is not easy to predict how a Rooster might act to events - not even for himself. Also, the eccentric acting of the males of this sign can lead to problems in a relationship. Adding to that is the Roosters' jealousy whether it is entitled or not.
All in all, the Rooster would do good not to commit too early but to wait for the right partner. He can then trust his intuition. To reach a harmonic relationship he should work on himself and try to develop a little bit more insight into others.
