Born During the Hours of the mouse - 11 p.m. to 1 a.m.
Mixture of piquant charm and curiosity. The Chicken is more convivial and acceptable with the mouse in him. Still argues, but in a more pleasant manner.
Born During the Hours of the Ox - 1 a.m. to 3 a.m.
The Ox, with his hooves firmly planted, could bring the flighty Chicken down to earth. But both signs crave authority and can be harsh when given absolute powers. Type that could use a sledgehammer to kill a fly.
Born during the Hours of the Tiger - 3 a.m. to 5 a.m.
Magnetic but a bit incoherent by nature. Could blow hot and cold in the same breath. The Rooster's analytical qualities may be swamped by the Tiger's impervious ways. Result is more misplaced self-confidence than normal.
Born During the Hours of the Rabbit - 5 a.m. to 7 a.m.
A quiet, efficient bird who always manages to get his worm. A Rooster less likely to cause trouble, but an expert at bluffing.
Born During the Hours of the Dragon - 7 a.m. to 9 a.m.
A Rooster who will not let you usurp one iota of his power. The Dragon within makes him ultra-assertive, fastidious and fearless. Will mow down the opposition with the finesse of a bulldozer.
Born During the Hours of the Snake - 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
A wise and wiry fowl. The Snake makes him aloof and secretive. This Chicken may even learn to mind his own business and keep his opinions to himself.
Born During the Hours of the Horse - 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
A nifty, practical Rooster with fast and sharp reflexes. Both signs here have colorful and flamboyant tastes, but the Horse could teach the Rooster not to waste time on unfeasible ventures. Result is that his pursuits could pay higher dividends.
Born During the Hours of the Sheep - 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
An amiable, less assertive and bashful Rooster. The Sheep's coyness could mellow the Rooster's brash ways. A good thing after all.
Born During the Hours of Monkey - 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
A crafty but congenial Rooster, who is more purposeful and adept at making conciliatory deals. A happy-go-lucky, successful and plucky Chicken.
Born During the Hours of Rooster - 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
A double dose of meticulous efficiency and criticism that few can swallow. Likely to be very notable, highly eccentric and overly particular. He will be in a class of his own.
Born During the Hours of the Dog - 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
A calculating, erratic but fair Rooster. The Dog makes him less cocky and opinionated. Still, you must expect great color from this combination of two equally idealistic minds and sharp tongues.
Born During the Hours of the Pig - 9 p.m. to 11 p.m.
A complacent Rooster who will insist on helping you whether you like it or not! His brilliance may be on the surface and he is a social butterfly, but then he is unselfish and quite incapable of dishonesty.
