We wish you all the Best For the New Year
We welcome the opportunity to express our warmest greetings to Chinese and Americans, Europeans and Africans, Australians and Asians from the world over as we will celebrate this New Year 4693, the year of the wooden Rooster. The Chinese zodiac is one of the oldest known horoscope systems in the world, with origins tracing back to 2637 before our Era. The New Year is a time for optimism and reconciliation, a time when we should put behind us the quarrels of the past and work to achieve greater understanding of ourselves and those around us, both friend and foe alike. It is a time when we look to the future with a sense of pride in all the human race has accomplished and in all which we have before us. The Rooster is the strutting peacock of the Chinese Zodiac! These quick thinkers are practical and resourceful, preferring to stick to what is tried and true rather than taking messy, unnecessary risks. Roosters are keenly observant. It's hard to slip anything past a Rooster, since they seem to have eyes in the backs of their heads! Roosters are straightforward and rewards others' honesty in kind. Roosters aren't shifty or cagey and have no interest in hiding behind a facade. They are the proverbial open book, telling the truth and keeping their word. If you show your hand, the Rooster will respect you for it. This kind of trusting behavior can tempt tricksters to pull a fast one on the Rooster, but that would be a bad move! Remember, this Sign doesn't indulge in flights of fancy and keeps those eyes wide open at all times. Roosters tend to be perfectionists and expect to be in control, especially over their appearance. Primping and posing for the Rooster can go on forever! Being noticed and admired is an aphrodisiac for Roosters, and they can go a long time on a few kind words. Roosters also adore being out on the town, especially if they're in the company of adoring friends. The Rooster will often be the best-dressed one of the bunch -- style counts with this Sign, regardless of the cost. Roosters expect to be in control of their surroundings, including whoever happens to be in those surroundings. They keep an impeccably neat house and expect their lovers, housemates and family members to maintain the same high standards of dress and conduct as they do. Roosters need to learn to value their heart and soul as much as their good looks. Their excellent people skills and sharp minds are qualities that others will appreciate as much as a pretty face. This Sign would also do well to learn to adopt the philosophy of "live and let live"; perhaps an appeal to the Rooster's logic -- that it's inefficient to waste time nagging others -- will help this Sign learn to let others be whomever and however they are.
