The rat is charming, sociable, resourceful, quick-witted, ambitious, crafty and self-serving. While in the Western world the rat is looked upon by many with disgust and revulsion, he is admired and honored in much of the East for his cleverness and aptitude for acquiring things of value. In China and Japan, rats are signs of good luck and prosperity.
The rat is a charming creature capable of captivating almost anyone. Rats are connoisseurs who take pleasure in flaunting their style. They also possess a great sense of humor. Rats can be very protective and generous to those who are loyal to them.
Rats can also be quite self-serving. They have their own goals and ambitions and will not hesitate to advance them. Those rats outside of their social circle may find themselves easily riled and verbally abusive. Rats do not often pass up the opportunity to debate.
Rats are very curious about everything and are always on the hunt for new information — anything that may be of use to them in the present or future.
The rat’s biggest problem is he finds it difficult to see beyond himself. If he can find room for others, he will be well on the way to true happiness.
