Rat's personality horoscope
Knowing perfectly how to make his interlocutors feel comfortable, the Rat nevertheless abstains from establishing a balance of power within the limited framework of a discussion. He is indeed sufficiently sophisticated and cunning to almost never need to resort to primitive forms of communication, such as intimidation or violence.
The Rat has a very dynamic and positive personality, which helps him set ambitious life goals for himself. Moreover, his meticulous and persevering nature allows him to successfully complete long-term projects.
His undeniable magnetism and intelligence arouse the curiosity and fascination of both his friends and his enemies, who fear him with reason. The Rat having the defects of his qualities, he will not hesitate to use the most obscure subterfuges to obtain what he seeks, for the pleasure of the game, to earn money easily or to take revenge on someone who would have had the presumption of stealing him.
Indeed, of a subtle and penetrating nature but also opportunistic and greedy, the thirst for wealth of the Rat seems disproportionate and his will to climb the social ladder insatiable. He might well and wrongly be suspected to be venal. However, money is in fact for him the only guarantee of security that can appease his existential anxieties.
In a romantic relationship, the person born during the Chinese Year of the Rat is very passionate and involved in his couple and marriage. However, when he feels betrayed or neglected emotionally, he can easily let his heart dominate him. After a break-up, like a soul in pain, he wanders in constant agitation, between the warmth and the coldness of his lost hopes. Fortunately, he usually quickly gets back to his senses, because he can't stand to stay alone for too long. Individualistic when it comes to his own interests and his wallet, he doesn't have a particular liking for loneliness and is fully aware of what a warm and loving home can bring as benefits.
