Rooster

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

The Rooster is one of the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac. It refers to one of the 12 earthly branches, which are used in Chinese astrology, together with the 10 heavenly stems. Such a branch designates one day every 12 days: the days are named according to a sexagesimal (60) cycle, made of 10 series of 12 branches.

A little arrogant and boastful, the Rooster is a nice person. He tries hard to be liked. In fact, he is anxious—he tends to have feelings of self-doubt, and he has to be reassured. Nothing pleases him more than a compliment. He has a quick mind and a quick tongue; and when he is angry, he does not mince his words. Meticulous, efficient, he works at his pace, and shows little ambition. He has many acquaintances but few friends, for he is quite wary.

—Michele Delemme

Rooster

(dreams)
The meaning of this symbol could be very much like that of chickens. However, the rooster represents male energy and possibly aggression. If you ever observed a rooster in a hen house, you would notice that they are very aggressive, demanding, and territorial. This dream may be pointing to these characteristics inside of you or others. A rooster crowing is a traditional wake-up call on a farm while in literature it is sometimes symbolic of some type of a warning. If the rooster in your dream is crowing, think about your current situation and if this dream is a wake-up call in regard to a situation in your life.
