What does the rooster symbolize?

Answer

In Chinese astrology, the rooster symbolizes keen observation and practical thinking. Roosters also represent a need for control and perfectionism. Personality traits of individuals born under the sign of the rooster include brutal honesty and resourcefulness.

The rooster's associated sun sign is Virgo. Virgos tend to be practical in their thinking and enjoy order and tidiness. These personality traits are similar to those of roosters, as they are naturally clean and tidy birds that habitually bathe themselves and tidy up their roosts. Roosters are also considered symbols of good fortune and prosperity. It is believed that the luckiest place for a rooster to reside is in the kitchen, which is why ceramic rooster knickknacks are a popular housewarming gift.

Roosters are extremely smart and always on guard. They are keenly aware of their surroundings. A common joke regarding roosters is that they have "eyes in the back of their heads." Roosters have diminished senses of smell and taste, but their sense of hearing is very strong. Roosters have a lifespan of approximately 15 years. They enjoy a vast diet that includes insects, worms, snakes, acorns, grains, nuts and seeds. Roosters are always on the lookout for predators. Common predators of the rooster include bobcats, possum, raccoons, owls and skunks.
