The Chinese zodiac, like the Greek zodiac, is super about the number 12. But instead of having a corresponding animal for each of the 12 months, the Chinese zodiac runs on a cycle of 12 years — each year with its own animal. When the cycle starts over, the animals are assigned different elements, too. And starting on Chinese New Year, which is January 28 this year, we’ll be hanging out with the rooster. The fire rooster, no less. Sounds invigorating?We’re leaving behind the year of the monkey, the trickster animal. Sounds like 2016 to us. The rooster year, if you’re one to entertain a bit of mysticality, goes hand in hand with some core rooster traits. It symbolizes getting energized at the asscrack of dawn, ready to face anything in your way like a boss. This year’s supposed to be a great time to get ahead at work, and not by schmoozing your way to the top. We’re talking getting down to the nitty-gritty and working hard for authentic results. Along with being a hard-working sign, the rooster is also into looking good — strutting, tailfeathers, the works. If you’ve been wearing the same tired wardrobe for a while or have started to feel weird about your man bun, this is a great year to reinvent yourself through a totally new approach to fashion. So get out there and get down to business. Take some pride in looking good doing it. And pro tip from Muhammed Ali: “A rooster crows only when it sees the light. Put him in the dark and he’ll never crow. I have seen the light and I’m crowing.”Related Reading: New Year, New Hobby: Box Brew Kits Editors’ Recommendations Learn Guitar (and Don’t Give Up) With the Fender Play App Everlane Wants You to Have a Daily Uniform to Make Dressing Easier How Full Harvest and Misfits Market Are Saving Ugly Produce Why Your Desk Chair Matters and the 9 Best Ones to Boost Your Productivity last_img
