Chinese Rat Sign
The Chinese Rat is a Sign of cleverness and charm. They are generous and fun to have as a trusted friend. They are imaginative and curious. They have a great deal of energy that may manifest itself as restlessness. You have to admit that Rats know how to get things moving. They are constantly thinking and planning. Their organization skills are phenomenal. They get more done in a day than most people do in a week. They trust their instincts and are self-confident. They can be a bit talkative, but most people don't mind because these people are so talented. While the Rat is not a romantic, they are very loving and protective.
The Chinese Rat usually has an agenda and they aren't afraid to push it. They can get downright aggressive at times. They are interested in money, and at times greed can be their undoing. When upset they become very nervous. They love a good bargain and will often buy things even if they don't need them just because the price was right. They tend to hoard mementos and souvenirs. They can be very manipulative with their powers of persuasion.
Rats have great memories. They make good writers and reporters, though they can be successful at anything they turn their hand to. They are extremely adaptable. One of their biggest faults is that they try to do too much at once. Their natural industry makes them hard workers. They are basically honest souls that will keep someone's information confidential, unless it happens to slip as a juicy piece of gossip.
Chinese Rats tend to be healthy, in part due to their active lifestyles. Exercising helps curb excess restlessness and tension, which could lead to health issues with time. They are excellent problem solvers.
The Chinese Rat's social charm helps them meet new people. They may have difficulty breaking off a relationship, however. They are very loving and loyal to their family, and make excellent parents.
