The Rooster always considers life as a comedy rather than a tragedy, and this preserves him/her from pessimism and discouragement. He/she will therefore enjoy himself/herself this year, do foolish things, but will always keep a certain sense of measure. Moreover, he/she will study philosophers, particularly those who know how to make fun of philosophy, such as Montaigne and Pascal.
If he/she continues in this path, he/she will have chances to spend the year profitably. Beware, however! He/she should not continue to believe that all people are foolish except for himself/herself: "It's great folly to want to be wise all alone" (La Rochefoucauld)!
