The Rooster is one of the few zodiac signs, that will feel an extraordinary lightness and lift in strength, and this will allow him overcome even the greatest difficulties in his path. The main thing for Rooster is a goal and an idea which he should strive to achieve, otherwise his activities would lose their meaning, and he risks just staying in a place in his development. In addition to absolute leadership inclinations, great ambitions in the year 2012 of the Black Water Dragon will require from him the ability to communicate, work in teams, actively and quickly respond to problems and be more attentive to close ones.
In 2012, the Rooster who is an employee may get promotion. The time has come for him to think seriously about the future, and change job, if the former did not bring him any moral or material satisfaction. In the coming 2012, there should not be a division of prestigious, interesting, and routine, non-essential work for a representative of the zodiac sign because the most tedious and boring affairs prepare a good foundation for future ambitious projects.

To earn a new post or create a strong partnership, Rooster in the first half of 2012 will have to actively prove his point, his talents and abilities.

In spring, an unemployed Rooster may find a good job, things will go smoothly this time incrementally, giving him a good opportunity to be well involved in his business and be active and energetic. A representative of this zodiac sign must be consistent in his actions, carefully and accurately performing his work.

And that's that. Not sure if you read through it all. But in a nutshell, there's a lot to be optimistic about this year, but not without effort and a little bit of risk taking. Also while optimism may be on the menu, it also doesn't hurt to be a bit on the cautious side when it comes to investments and relationships. There's definitely gonna be a lot of blood, sweat and tears to be shed this year but rewards will definitely be well worth it and probably more.
