In China, Rats are very highly prized. You are
power hungry and know instinctively how to reach
the top. Once you get those Rat claws firmly
around an honored position, you hold on for dear
life. Leadership becomes you. People respect you.
You seem so cool, you are fun loving and sociable.
But your private self is often fidgety and
nervous. You need to talk problems through.
Getting anxiety off your chest is as good as
putting it out of your mind. Some accuse you of
talking too much, let's just say that you talk a
lot. You are not a willing idler. You're
quick-witted, you speed through work to have
plenty of time left to meddle in what others are
up to. When dealing in delicate matters, you
instinctively know how to keep your whiskers
clean. Yet, you aren't a straight arrow. You would
always rather zigzag your way to fame and fortune
than trot the straight and narrow. You tend to be
picky. You are paradoxical. An odd mix of
profligate and thrifty, saving everything from
worn-out rubber bands to frayed shirt collars,
just in case, then spending like a bandit on some
costly bauble that you deem essential to your well
being. You charm others into doing what you want.
Winning friends and seducing lovers is child's
play for sexy rat's. Still, you are not
promiscuous, you are the marrying kind, you
require a family. Rat's should team up with
Dragons, Ox's or Monkeys and should steer well
clear of Cat's and Horses. Youth is a good time
for Rats, but mid-life can bring your downfall due
to errors of judgement in love or business
matters. If you seek counsel from the wise, your
golden years should prove comfortable. Advice?
Stop worrying. Rats never starve. Crafty
go-getters like you never do.
