The Rat is regarded as wise in Oriental mythology. Rats, always naturally curious creatures, seem to want to know as much as they can about everything they come across.
People born under the influence of the Rat have the ability to write and speak with fluency, and are able to turn their hands to most things. They are inquisitive and adaptable and are quite practical in nature.
Rats have a tendency to put on a front in an effort to disguise their insecurities. They fear rejection and not being loved and steer away from serious commitment because of this.
Rats also have a fear of loss, be it loosing status, love or financially. They have a tendency to tuck away money, just in case that rainy day arrives.
Rats enjoy a good time and are happy to join in with any celebration. Their active social lives can tempt them into unhealthy dietary habits and over-indulgence.
Rats can be obsessive about sex and often form hot and heavy, sexually active relationships with Dragons - but when things start to fizzle, Rats often find themselves seeking solace with a Pig of Ox, with whom they are able to form lasting relationships. Rats can find themselves attracted to Horses, but their speed wears Rats out. Rats can also be attracted to Monkeys, but soon enough the Monkeys madcap behaviour tends to quell any prospect of a meaningful, long-term relationship.
