1900, 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008
According to Chinese folklore, this sign can be quite complex and people who are born under this Chinese sign possess strong leadership skills and are intelligent, charismatic, artistic, charming, persuasive, attractive, generous to loved ones, and ambitious. On the negative side, rats can be exploitive, dangerous, dreamy, deviant, selfish, cunning, psychotic(rats tend towards mental instability), lustful, stubborn, manipulative, frail, and vain.
Rats are a symbol of good luck and wealth. They are clever, lustful, and intelligent. This sign is very ambitious and strong-willed, and is motivated by its own interests, which often include money and power. Rats are naturally charming, seductive and persuasive. They are energetic and versatile and can usually find their way around obstacles, and adapt to various environments easily. A rat's natural charm and sharp demeanor make it an appealing friend for almost anyone. The Rat likes to know who is on its side and will treat its most loyal friends with an extra measure of protection and generosity. However, they also have long memories and will rarely forgive or forget an enemy. Rats are strongly family oriented. Although they are often hoarders and can be miserly, they also are very generous to their family and friends. Rats have a great capability for accumulating and holding on to items of value.
A valuable lesson for Rats is to learn to consider others below themselves, at least sometimes, and to avoid forcing their ideas onto others. Rats are fair in their dealings and do not expect the same from others in return, and can be deeply affronted if they feel they have been deceived or that their trust has been abused. Sometimes they set their targets too low, whether in relationship to their friends or in their career, but as the years pass they will become more idealistic and tolerant. If they can develop their sense of self and realize it leaves room for others in their life as well, Rats can find true happiness.
In middle age, if everything goes smoothly, Rats will be able to achieve their life goals. Ideal jobs for rats include detective, artist, musician, spy, writer, lawyer, broker, politician, psychiatrist, pathologist, and crime laboratory scientist.
