Roosters have been idolized by many cultures
throughout history. For some, the rooster stands for pride, hope, and a new day. The Chinese believe roosters symbolize good luck, wealth, and fortune. A rooster spirit animal is said to teach the lesson of using your voice for good. Those who are timid find confidence, honesty, and old-fashioned gusto in this bird. For others, a rooster entering your life means that you have something to accomplish, and the time to “rise and shine” is now.
