"Cock-a-doodle-doo!" - In the past we humans relied on this call to get up in the morning. Today the alarm clock - or for most, the mobile phone - has taken over that task. Despite their ‘alarming’ redundancy the rooster remains a creature that demands our attention – as those born under the sign display unique characteristics of foresight, forward thinking and innovation! Find out more below about the rooster, and the Rooster card paper and finishing processes, in our blog series.

Characteristics of the zodiac sign
Those born under the rooster sign of the zodiac has a clear view – not in the sense of sight, but based on knowledge of human nature and foresight. Rooster-born are networking experts, relationship builders and quickly establish rapport with new acquaintances. Prone to exaggeration but extremely humorous and helpful, Roosters like to talk though they are also ordered and structured in their work – though this may not always be transferred to their private environment.
People born under the rooster have the potential to create; especially in the artistic, musical and literary area, though they rarely choose a job in this direction. They are innovative thinkers, have a plan for everything and take every detail into account in the process of execution. People belonging to the zodiac sign Rooster are clever and flexible thinkers. But their impatience often gets in the way of their success.[1]
