The Rat in the Chinese
Horoscope is the most sentimental of all signs. He is known for his magnanimous character
and great benevolence. The family is extremely important to a Rat and he has a very caring
heart for the elderly in his family and will easily take over the role of a benefactor to
His largeness of the heart makes him loved by his family and those he
chooses to protect and they can always rely on his benevolence in return.
He is highly intuitive and has a tremendous ability to safe-guard
himself especially in financial matters. He has great ability to horde up wealth due to
his frugal ways. His danger will always be his unawareness of his limitations.
He always wants to achieve too much and in too quick a time and
therefore looses sight of the other factors that can trip him up. Therefore before he
reaches stability, he has to learn one major experience in life and this lesson will make
him aware of his limitations.
Avarice can be a negative trait in a Rat but to those he loves, he is
over indulgent and generous to a fault. But with a Rat, he never knows when enough is
enough. If this trait can be controlled, he will be better respected, loved and sought
after in partnerships.
In his inexhaustible quest for power and financial wealth, he must always bear in mind
to pace himself and take things one at a time. To ensure that his reign of power and his
financial wealth remains in tact, the Rat must take time to read the small prints in all
contracts and be mindful of what he says to who.
