#8 Rooster | Cornflower Blue
The Rooster is of the Metal element.
Generally, people born under a Metal sign have a great deal of confidence and are resolute in their drive for success, sometimes to the point of being hard-headed and stubborn! There is a strong sense of attractiveness around this element – they have an energy and confidence that makes them very likable. One of the most colorful characters of the zodiac, Roosters will always want to be the life of the party… and whether you like it or not, they will find their way to the heart of every occasion. They are fun and frank – but it is precisely these great qualities that can also make them many enemies as people see them as obnoxious and arrogant.

A fiery sign that will light up every room, the Fire Rooster is as dynamic on the inside as he is on the outside.

The Earth Rooster – 1969,
Earth Roosters, true to their element, will shoulder the burden of the whole world upon their shoulders if need be. The Rooster is also a very efficient, meticulous sign – the Earth Rooster is all the more so. They can handle several different tasks at once, each as organized as the other.
Cornflower Blue is the color we associated with the Rooster. It’s a wondrous shade of light to medium blue with a touch of green. This color’s name is derived from the cornflower, called Cyanus (blue). The symbol of life, fertility, and reanimation, the magical cornflower is believed to have healed the poisonous wounds of Achilles according to Ancient Greek mythology. This hue was one of the favorites of the Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer: remember the turban in his famous Girl with a Pearl Earring painting? It was also used often in works by van Gogh. The true beauty of cornflower blue lies in its versatility. It can stretch from relaxing to regal, artistic to dreamy – all depending on what it’s paired with.
The cornflower blue color also represents depth, tranquility, contemplation, and peace. It can also be used to convey a sense of idealism, trust, loyalty, sincerity, wisdom, confidence, and stability.
If you like a vibrant color combination made up of two colors opposite one another in the color wheel, you should pair Cornflower Blue with Dandelion. If you are looking for a more serene look, you can pair Cornflower Blue with Lotus Blossom and Salvia Argentea.
To create a trendy monochromatic color palette, pair the Cornflower blue color with Stone Blue, Morning Glory and Genziana.
