THE SACRED ROOSTER
A universal symbol of strength, virility, fertility, a solar symbol, a sign of illumination, and the ‘call‘ to awaken and to resurrect.
Proud, loud, bold, confident these are just a few attributes of the Rooster, also known as the Cock.
Friedrich Justin Bertuch, Bilderbuch für Kinder, 1790–1830 (Eigenbesitz), Fabelwesen.
The rooster is associated with the Greek phoenix, the Persian simurgh, the Indian garuda, and the Chinese fenghuang.
The above list of mythology birds spawn from the Rooster. With the rising and falling of the sun the Rooster crows in the morning and is symbolically reborn with the following morning.
The Phoenix itself has long been associated with the sun, burning itself to a pile of ashes to only resurrect anew.
THE ROOSTER, THE CHRIST & THE RESURRECTION
The Spiritual Fire, The Great Awakening of the Kundalini energy rising up the 33 vertebrae of the spinal column, ‘ripening the soul’ through a Purification process transitioning from death to life. This process leads to Awakening or a resurrection, much like the Christ at age 33.
The Apostle Peter denies the Christ 3 times before the Rooster crows (Matthew 26:33-35), meaning before the finial breath of the Christ (rooster) he would be denied by the world (matter) continuing to transcend, resurrect, awaken.
This also makes reference to the ‘Sun of man’ (Mark 14:62) in the Biblical Text. The Rooster is a symbol of the sun, the Number 3 (being the number for completion) crows are confirmation that the Christ is the ‘sun of man’ (also see side not for the meaning of Gever)
In some beliefs the Rooster is offered as a sacrifice, much like The Christ where the ‘shedding of blood‘ (Hebrews 9:22) is used to cleanse, purify, even to resurrect life and grant wishes.
SIDE NOTE: The word GEVER in Hebrew both means ‘man‘ and ‘rooster‘, serving as a substitute in place of man, that to ‘takeaway the sins of the world‘ (John 1:29)
Another great reason why the Rooster is one of the best substitutes is because of the richness of the blood.
THE ROOSTER AND SEXUALITY
The Cock, clearing my throat is known for his masculinity and sexual stamina representing the capability to sustain the test, through the spiritual fire of Purification.
The red top of the Rooster represents fertility, virility, strength, passion, common knowledge, authority, purity, sexual energy, and Awakening.
THE ROOSTER, DIVINATION AND ASTROLOGY
Cockfighting is more than just a sport or pastime but an ancient practice of ritual and divination.
Several forms of divination practices are used still to this day such as Alectryomancy, is one of the popular forms that is practiced by observing a bird specifically a white cock and their peeking pattern at letter shaped grain (likely wheat) or recording whatever letters are remaining to gain.
A rooster fight or cockfight is used as a form of communication between the gods and man. One form is called Kukkuta Sastra (Cock Astrology) and is based on the rooster fight. This complex system en’tails‘ (no pun intented) colors of the Rooster feathers, blood circulation of the cock, and other factors.
JEWISH ROOSTER RITUAL
Customary with some Jewish practitioners on the afternoon before Yom Kippur,the Day of Atonement a Scared Rooster would be swung overhead while still alive. Afterwards the bird is slaughtered and prepared as usual and given to the poor.
THE ROOSTER IN ASTROLOGY
The Rooster is the tenth of the 12-year cycle and the leader of the legendary team of Sheng Xiao. The cocky bird is the most observant and hardworking animal in the calendar.

It is a very broad subject and in that, each individual must carry on refining their knowledge base and methodologies. We’re all students seeking that golden ticket to show us the magic behind the celestial enclosures.
I know 🤷🏽♀️ the more I learn, the learn that there’s more to be learned.
