Rooster, the tenth animal of the Chinese zodiac, is a sign of hard-working individualists displaying a flair for fashion and a great sensitivity to beauty. Therefore, it is not surprising that people born in the year of the Rooster are self-confident and keen to take up new challenges. Observant, courageous and honest, they quickly win trust from their colleagues and surround themselves with loyal friends. There are many famous people born in the Year of the Rooster, among them Stanisław Lem, Catherine the Great and Giuseppe Verdi.
