Enter the Year of the Cock

Yes, that’s Rooster. Is this gonna be your year!??


People born in a year of the Rooster are very observant. Hardworking, resourceful, courageous, and talented, Roosters are very confident in themselves.

There are 5 types of Roosters set by the year you were born.

I am a Monkey I was born 1980. 2016 was my 3rd cycle for the year of the Monkey. It’s suppose to be a special time for people when it’s “their year”. By all accounts I fit the description of Monkey quite well. Playful, curious and naughty. I’m also a Libra and I also fit those characteristics well.

(Last nights dinner)

12 year cycles are significant in many cultures and if you think about it they really are ages we tend to go through big changes in our life.

Which animal are you?

At 12 years old, your first completed cycle; children are coming to know who they are and understand what they want. Puberty begins and childhood is pretty much over. That feeling of everything is new and interesting changes into how does that work and how can I do it myself.

The next cycle you will be 24 years old. Again amazing life changes happen at 24 years old. For some it means your well on your way to being an adult, independent, your path has been set or maybe you’re still trailblazing but you without a doubt your mind set is different and your life is nothing like it was 12 years prior.
At 36 years old like myself again life has completed another big cycle of ups and downs. I cannot pretend to not feel different now than I did at 24. Everything about me is different. The things I like have changed, my place in society and family has changed.

Now is new year new animal and new start. 2017 is all about the Rooster or as Chinese like to say in English the Cock. I have been given flashcards to teach kids to say cock rather than rooster. Somehow my mind keeps reverting to rooster, not sure why, any ideas?

There are 12 animals in the Chinese zodiac which revolves around the moon cycles. The Rooster is the tenth in line. If you were born in any of these years you are a Rooster
1921,1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017

They say the 2017 will not be a great for Roosters and it’s recommended you should be a little more cautious this as opposed to 12 years ago.

Here some tips to help you Roosters make the best of Luck for your special year.

None the less it will still be special year for you and I truly wish you the best year ever!

Some drunken photo style. Some pics I tried to grab while taking the taxi home.

Happy New Year Steemit Friends and Community.

Technically Steemit is a Monkey like me. And HOLY CRAP does Steemit’s personality fit the characteristics of the Monkey.

Most people think the Chinese New Year starts the Year of the Rooster for this year. Actually, the year actually starts on the the LiChun 立春 which is mostly 4th February and sometimes 5th February. So, if you are born in before 4th this year even after Chinese New Year, your Chinese zodiac sign is the Monkey and not Rooster.

Yes that is true. Spring Festival is the official start of the Rooster. I have jumped the gun as they say.
I plan to be in Thailand for Spring Fest.

The thing about Chinese New years and Western New Years that always confuses me Chinese people have 2 ages. The lunar birthday and the other which I never really figured. lol

Happy New Years @ace108
hope you have a great 2017.

Whats your animal?

Thank you.
No jump the gun. Even in China or other highly Chinese populated country, people think Chinese New Year is the marker. So, it's not wrong according to the context of these peopl.
Happy New Year to you.
I'm a snake - the intelligent one.

Thanks for the extra info, as I had heard that it was the year of the rooster a bit earlier. Have a great year and namaste :)

Happy New Year to you and yours @solarguy!
Great post about the Chinese Zodiac. I was born in 1971, so that makes me a pig.
I like to think that makes me somewhat intelligent and not gluttonous. LOL

Oink Oink. ^('(oo)')^
Pigs are great animals, very clever.

Thank you
Hope your 2017 is full of laughter and brings you the things that make you feel rich.

What a beautiful sentiment!
I wish this for you and your family too.

I am also a 🐷

TIL: I'm a Lion Monkey!

Happy New Year @solarguy!

Happy new years to you too. Hope this year is the best year yet.

Hell yes , it's been a while since I had a good year !!!

hope it's all you want it to be and more!

Okay, the immature infant / bevis and butthead in me is still giggling about "year of the cock" ... and that was long before your post. =D

haha. yea. Cock is a common word here for Rooster.

Whats your animal?

Tiger, I think.

thanks for this great post, I know so little about the Chinese Zodiac and appreciate your insight and information! I'm the year of the Sheep (or goat?) 1967 - all the people I know of my year are fundamentally gentle, even if passionate. Anyway, may all the cocks and the rest of us create a very happy 2017!

you too man. !!

I like that the word "cock" is in the title.

call em as i see em.

lol

My daughter's going to be born during the year of the cock. Great.

Congratulations on the upcoming addition to your life ad family.
