... the life of a Rooster .... the desire to fly
Michael "Monkey" Douglas is very happy with his Catherine Zeta Jones, because he is now with the most passionate symbol available. Before he was reported to be seeking help in therapy to cure his urge for having sex.
The Chinese call the Rooster "Yo" as it stands for "ji" what means pride.
Since the last year of the Monkey in 2004 it was again Roger Federer, who stood out with 3 Grand Slam titles while Serena Williams wasn`t too well unlike Renée Zellweger, who had won an Oscar for the best supporting role.
Usually a Year of the Monkey can be a challenging one in particular for male Rooster, while the Rooster Ladies may find 2016 a lot easier as they tend to be more flexible and radical, what might appeal to the ruling Monkey.
In fact most Monkey males seem to love Rooster Ladies passionately as shown by Michael Douglas and his amazing Catherine Zeta-Jones.
But despite all these preferences, the wild game of the radical Monkey is likely to be a tricky one, what won't make 2016 too easy.
A lot of provocation and testing can be expected, but once the Rooster will come up with the same precision as Roger Federer their chances for big wins are not to bad at all.
And certainly they should be looking happily forward to their big year of the Rooster in 2017, so that it would make great sense to convert the current Year 2016 into a a useful stepping stone.
Obviously the years of the Monkey are highly sociable and full of action, so that a lot of Rooster will be feeling well entertained.
Male Rooster would be fine with an Ox or Horse girl.
