(1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008)

The Rat is shrewd and capable, and likes to analyse matters before making a move. While a keen promoter of his own interests, the Rat is also naturally charming and likes to be around people, treating his friends with generosity.
Rats are imaginative, charming, and truly generous to the ones they love. However, Rats have a tendency to be quick-
tempered and overly critical. At ease with company and groups of people, their intelligence and observation allows them to quickly grasp a situation from multiple perspectives.
Rats know how to spot opportunities and seize them, but their opportunism, ambition and restlessness can lead to too many commitments. Don’t be fooled — although shrewd in business at times, Rats are passionate lovers, with a depth of feeling that is seldom recognized by others.
