🐭🔥 The Year of the Fire Rat in Chinese astrology: Calendar dates and Fire Rat Chinese zodiac characteristics

If you were born in 1936 or 1996, the annual pillar of the Fire Rat corresponds to your main Chinese zodiac sign.

Let us remember in preamble that the Chinese lunisolar calendar being based on the lunar cycles, the dates of the Year of the Fire Rat are different from a year of the Gregorian calendar (see below the exact dates of the Fire Rat Years).

In Chinese astrology, your date of birth can be broken down into four pillars of destiny (四柱 命理 学) or Ba-Zi (八字). Each pillar of destiny is associated with an animal and a Chinese element and corresponds to one of the periods of your birth (year, month, day and hour). If you were born at a Rat Hour, a Fire Rat Day or during a Fire Rat Month, each of these periods also corresponds to a pillar of destiny. The four pillars of the Fire Rat share the same imaged destiny, which you can discover further down the page.

Furthermore, if your year of birth is 1936 or 1996 and the Fire Rat is therefore your 1st pillar of destiny (your main Chinese zodiac sign, which is the one corresponding to your personality and your relationship to the world and with others), then all Fire Rat Days and Months, as well as the Chinese Hour of the Rat, are lucky times for you.

Find below the list of the annual and monthly dates of the Fire Rat's Chinese calendar, as well as the hours ruled by the Rat. Then discover the personality and characteristics of the Fire Rat, his lucky talismans (color, number, stone, fragrance), his Chinese birth chart (energy composition) and his love compatibility with the 12 animal signs of Chinese astrology. See also the traditional Chinese method that parents use to choose the birth name of a Fire Rat child, as well as the list of ideal trades supplemented by a list of celebrities born during the Chinese Year of the Fire Rat.
