Rats are intelligent, shrewd, quick-witted, resourceful and adaptable. Rats always flee a sinking ship and the Rat of the Chinese Zodiac is no different – they know how to survive and have a remarkable sense of self-preservation. There is no puzzle they cannot solve and no riddle that eludes them. They are curious and strong-willed, as well as being highly ambitious, striving for success in every area of their life.

On the negative side, Rats can be cunning, manipulative and opportunistic. Others can be tossed to the side as the Rat pursues their ambitions. This is not done out of willful harm by the Rat, but instead an intense desire to achieve their goals. However, others can be easily hurt by the Rat’s tendency to zoom up the ladder, irrespective of who or what may stand in their way.

Career-wise, Rats make good writers, administrators, politicians, lawyers and researchers. They need a career where they can use their astute minds and can become easily bored if they are not engaged mentally in a task or where they feel their talents are not being put to good use.
