Rooster in 2021 - As Lucky As Desired

Since Rooster is in the same San He (三合) group with Ox, those under the Rooster sign will be blessed by many auspicious stars that will offer much help and bring pretty good luck to them. Meanwhile, the inauspicious stars are also not to be neglected and they should plan carefully in daily life to guard against accidents and trouble.


With many opportunities at work, those born in the Monkey years will become quite motivated at work and win the recognition or assistance by others due to the blessing of auspicious star Ba Zuo. The competition tends to be intensified, for which they should be careful, speak and act cautiously, and stay away from disputes. Only in this way can they get a possible promotion or pay rise.


Blessed by the Ba Bai star in charge of wealth, Rooster people will be lucky in wealth and get more pay for more work done. But the luck for sidelines can be average, so they are not suggested to speculate too much or pay for meals in a free-handed way. Also, any money connection with friends should be cut.


The love horoscope can be indifferent. Single Monkeys may find a chance to start a relationship while the married would worry about their families and beware of their partner having an affair.


The health horoscope is somewhat mixed. The inauspicious stars Bai Hu, Da Sha and Xue Ren may result in accidental injury, for which Monkey people should be more alert. The star Fu Chen can cause a water accident, so watersports should be avoided as much as possible. Those who are planning for pregnancy should be hung-up about health.

Rooster in 2020

Overview: Threatening But Not Dangerous

The 2020 horoscope for Roosters will not be good enough. Generally, they should be principally conservative since many things they do can be thrilling and troubled by unforeseen circumstances, which will catch them unprepared. Though they will finally pull through, the process can be very tough. As a result, they are not suggested to try but live an ordinary life and wait for a better time to challenge themselves.

Career: Unstable & Full of Changes

In 2020, the career horoscope of Rooster people can be worrying, quite unstable and full of changes. They may make remarkable achievements in a certain period of time, and then hit the bottom. Such a huge gap is unacceptable to anyone. However, they have to go through it, during which they may draw a lesson and learn a lot of useful experiences to lay a solid foundation for the future.

Love: Figure out & Get Real

People born in the Rooster year will have limited luck in love. Perhaps they have been wrong about the relationship and thought that, the one they love was also in love with them yet never said it out. One day, however, they will suddenly figure it out that it is not true. Meanwhile, the one they love will say it directly how he/she feels. At this time, they can finally let it go and start a new life.

Health: Find Peace of Mind & Take Care of Self

The health horoscope can be good for people of Rooster sign. They can find peace of mind and face everyday with a positive attitude. Also, they can take better care of themselves, especially in diet and sleep. Basically, they will enjoy health and be free of serious problems as long as they nurse with great care.

Wealth: Miss Opportunities by a Myopic Attitude

Roosters tend to have bad luck for wealth, as they will be blinded by immediate interests and so eager to make a fortune that they give no consideration for the future. This year, they may invest with all their money and get handsome returns at the very beginning but then they will lose and get nothing in the end. Therefore, they are suggested to take a long-term view, wait for the most propitious moment, and then seize the chance firmly to get rich.
