In ancient Chinese Astrology the Rooster is known for his showy loud character and also for his tendency to be sometimes critical and stubborn. A person born under the Western astrological sun sign of Capricorn is perceived to be determined and strong-willed. So a Capricorn born in the Year of the Rooster will usually be a driven and persistent personality. A Capricorn Rooster tends to always know what he wants in life and will not compromise. He or she is most often highly decisive and extremely set and immutable in their ways. Once a Capricorn Rooster decides on something it is almost impossible to change his mind.
Capricorn Rooster Traits
These Capricorn’s are strong, personalities who tend to create their own set of standards and ideas about the world, then stick to them. Capricorn Rooster’s are exceptionally independent but not forceful and they prefer to make their own decisions. As these individual’s are so unchangeable they can sometimes portray themselves as cold and detached emotionally. This is often a false impression as inside these people are nearly always as warm and sincere as they are obstinate. A Capricorn Rooster has a soft center and an affectionate and passionate side under all that inflexibility and stubbornness.
The Capricorn Rooster is happiest when he or she is doing something constructive as most of them feel the need to keep busy. These are not lazy individual’s and they are fairly ambitious so they are given to studying if not working and vice versa. A Capricorn Rooster personality has a neat no nonsense approach to everything but you know where you stand with them. They do not attempt to hide their inflexible characters so you will usually know before you ask them something what their answer will be. They tend to be as fixed and unmoving in their thoughts and opinions as they are in all their other mannerisms.
The changeless but amiable personality of the Capricorn Rooster individual is quite easy to get along with. These people like the company of others but are more likely to be happier in small groups and one to one relationships. The Rooster’s flambouyancy is barely eveident in these Capricorns. It can occasionally materialize as the Capricorn Rooster feeling the need to take great pride in his or her appearance. In soul mate relationships these personalities seek someone who will not try to change them but accept them completely as they are. Also they search for partners who can reach their inner emotions and help them relax.
Weaknesses in the Capricorn Rooster personality include moodiness, a bit of a temper and restlessness. These unfavorable characteristics will usually surface when a Capricorn Rooster is very bored or someone has really upset them in some way. Their normal relatively easygoing demeanor will become grumpy and irritable. Sometimes if they find something interesting to do they can be distracted and snap out of bad moods. The same usually also applies if they get an apology although in this case it may take a bit longer to reverse their mood.
Capricorn Rooster Compatibility (Love & Friendship)
In order to achieve balance from their working lives, Capricorn Roosters need to have relationships, and those relationships need to be personal and deep. They are simply not meant to be go solo in the world, though they do value their time alone to do their work and follow their dreams. Being socially active is important to both their work (networking) and their general well-being. Interacting with others is how they recharge and rejuvenate themselves, and without this important aspect of life, they can become dictatorial, frustrated, and mean-spirited.
Capricorn Roosters have a tendency to be blunt with their words, especially when it comes to their sense of humor. Obviously, sensitive types may be offended by this, but those close to them understand that this is their way of teasing their own hyper-critical nature. Still, Capricorn Roosters don’t get along well with everyone, and they don’t need to. As long as they keep their egos in check, there is little about this sign that can outweigh the honesty, helpfulness, and friendliness that this sign is capable of.
Romance is a big deal for Capricorn Roosters, though not as big as their work. In all aspects of life, members of this sign can be difficult partners since they have clearly defined goals that they need to be constantly working on. Potential romantic partners must understand that work and ambition are a key element of this sign and must accept that being a partner with a Capricorn Rooster does not necessarily mean being a partner in all aspects of their life. The best partners will be those who accept Capricorn Roosters as they are, but also challenge them to be their best. Honesty between the two is of ultimate importance, and quite frankly the Capricorn Rooster needs to learn how to take a sting just as well as they can give one. Once a romantic partnership is established, though, members of this sign are very loyal and giving and will do a lot to keep a partner happy.
Capricorn Rooster Business (Career & Goals)
Capricorn Roosters don’t trust anyone else to get the necessary work done, so they do most of it themselves. They are willing to delegate responsibilities but their standards are so high that there are very few people who can live up to their expectations. The problem is that everyone else who shares their work ethic is already working on their own projects.
Members of this sign could be entrepreneurs, but they are more likely to follow a strict path to success rather than gamble. Capricorn Roosters are surprisingly traditional in this way and do, in fact, prefer classic styles of working, dressing, and socializing over those which are newer, more innovative, or less road-tested. In business this might hold them back a bit, which is why it is important for them to include those with other skills and temperaments into their working lives if they truly want to accomplish something unique.
Above all things, Capricorn Roosters are investors. More specifically, they invest in themselves. In order to do this properly requires a great deal of self-confidence and belief in their own abilities. While this may come across as egotistical or arrogant, it is nonetheless necessary to the continued determination and persistence of this sign. Capricorn Roosters rarely change direction when they believe they are right, even if their goals are based on emotional intuition that occurred early on. It’s not just that they want to become successful in their career, it is that they want to be successful in whatever choices they have made. Even when the passion is long gone, members of this sign feel compelled to prove that they can achieve what they set out to do, even if just to themselves.
Capricorn Roosters will follow their hearts and intuition when it comes to choosing a career, but for those looking for a good fit, the following careers may be good options to explore: dentist, doctor, surgeon, salesman, executive, operations manager, restaurant owner, athlete, or journalist.
