Touched in their pride, the outcome of the relationship in question (friendly, professional or even love) depends on the degree of respectability which he deems being shown.
The alloy of energetic flows from Capricorn and the Rat allow the Rat-Capricorn to let mundanities provide a direction to his existence. Indeed, the adventurous character of the Rat, offset by the reserves of Capricorn, gifts the Capricorn-Rat being with a balanced personality, whose aspirations in life are realistic and achievable.

The combination of the western zodiac sign of Aquarius with the Chinese zodiac sign of the Rat gratify the Rat-Aquarius with a rather eccentric and emancipated personality. The Air element from Aquarius and the Water element from the Rat put him in a perpetual state of emotional agitation.

Passionate in love, the Rat-Pisces is a great romantic. Literally devoted to his family, the Rat-Pisces struggles to contain his pessimism and impatience, as it may easily irritate or confuse him at times when good communication is most needed.
