Once you’ve booked your Cairns Chinese New Year accommodation and tours you had better learn a bit more about the reason behind the celebrations!

So, what does the year of the Rooster mean?

The Rooster is the tenth in the Chinese Zodiac, some of the years included 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005 and 2017! Each year of the Rooster is said to be different based on the matching element. This year, the year of the Fire Rooster, means babies born this year will be trustworthy with a strong sense of responsibility.

The Roosters personality is observant, hardworking, active, amusing and popular in a crowd. Roosters are said to be happiest when surrounded by others and they enjoy the spotlight, taking any opportunity to exhibit their charm. Roosters like to boast about their accomplishments, and this behaviour might sometimes annoy others.

If you’re a Rooster, it is said that a good career choice for you may be a newsreader, sales person, athlete, teacher, surgeon, or police officer – quite a variety for the multi-talented Rooster!

On the side of love, 2017 is an important year for Roosters. The advice from the horoscope is to either get married or break-up, regardless of financial preparation, as they say these problems can be overcome with true love. If you are 24 or 36 years old, and your relationship is not progressing, the advice is to break up – but think calmly and don’t make a decision on an impulse.

Roosters match best with people born in the year of the Ox or Snake, and worst with people born in the year of the Rat, Rabbit, Horse or Pig.

For people born on Years of the Rooster, 2017 is said to be an unlucky year in the cycle, so if you’re a Rooster this is a year to be careful! Avoid the colour red and the numbers 1, 3 & 9. Your lucky numbers this year are 5, 7 and 8 and your lucky colours are gold, brown and yellow.

For the other signs of the Chinese lunar cycle, 2017 is said to be the best year for Dragons, an amazing year for Oxs and Snakes, a good year for Tigers and Rats, but a mixed year for Goats and Monkeys and a difficult year for Dogs, Rabbits and Horses.
