Fire In The Hole

So it is said that, on January 28, we shall enter the Year of the Fire Rooster. I went into the tubes, to determine what this might mean. And there I encountered Hell. For this Fire Rooster, appears to be The Monster incarnate.

Roosters are self-assured people. They possess powerful personalities and are notoriously dominant. Roosters can be conceited creatures, vain and boastful, with a strong egotistical need to constantly be the center of attention. Roosters are talkative types, outspoken, micropemnisfrank, open, honest—but a little too blunt at times. In conflicts, Roosters will push to the extreme but flee before open hostilities break out.

The Rooster has the reputation of finding money in the most unlikely places, like drawing blood from a stone. In Vietnam they say that, thanks to the strength of his beak and claws, the Rooster can find a worm in a desert. This metaphor goes a long way to explain the continual and restless activity that characterizes him.

The Rooster man likes to be in the company of women, among whom he can show off, shine, swagger and generally demonstrate what a clever fellow he is.

The Rooster will touch the heights and depths during the three phases of his life, business-wise as well as romantically. He will go from poverty to riches, from ideal love to the most sordid of emotional entanglements. The Rooster’s old age will be happy, however.

Legend has it in the East that two Roosters under the same roof make life intolerable for everyone else.

Under the influence of the Fire element, he may be a shooting star. He is vigorous, highly motivated and authoritative, able to operate independently, with great precision and skill, although he can also be temperamental, over-dramatic and nervous at times. He is strongly principled and single-minded in his pursuit of success, displaying above average managerial skills. Diligent and intense, he abides fanatically by his own views, conducting his own research, unmoved and unswayed by the opinions or feelings of others.

The horror. The horror.
