The Jade Emperor (The Emperor in Heaven in Chinese folklore) ordered that animals would be designated as calendar signs and the twelve that arrived first would be selected. At that time, the cat and the rat were good friends and neighbours. When they heard of this news, the cat said to the rat: ‘We should arrive early to sign up, but I usually get up late.’ The rat then promised to awaken his friend and go together. However, when he woke in the morning, the rat was too excited to recall his promise, and went directly to the gathering place. On the way, he encountered the tiger, ox, horse, and other animals that ran much faster. In order not to fall behind them, the rat came up with a clever plan. He persuaded the ox to carry him, on condition that he sang for the ox all the way there. Due to their teamwork the ox and rat were the first to arrive. The ox was happy thinking that he would be the first sign of the years, but the rat slid in front, and became the first lucky animal of the calendar. Our Chinese Zodiac collection is a fun play on this tale and portrays the 12 animals in their baby-faced infancy.
If you were born in 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005 or 2017, then you’re a Rooster.
The Rooster is the tenth character of the zodiac, and in Chinese culture represents fidelity and punctuality (since it wakes people up)! People born under the sign of the Rooster are said to be beautiful, kind hearted, hardworking and honest, but they can also be wild and impulsive and not consider outcomes!
Roosters get along well with the Snake and the Ox, but pairings with the Rabbit and the Dog can spell trouble, and their lucky numbers are 5, 7 and 8!
