Characteristics of the Earth Rat: 1948, 2008
The Earth Rat is a very wise and very level headed person with many life skills and lessons learnt at a young age. The Earth Rat will rarely take unnecessary chances and is more than prepared to advance slowly and leave nothing to chance when it comes to home life and career; this works well for the Earth Rat as the end result is a carefully planned out and well structured result.
The Earth Rat is not always as adventurous as the other four types of Rats and will prefer to remain in familiar territory and is not as comfortable in new surroundings with new people Earth Rats are constantly trying to improve their financial status and usually does well at this when using their talents and skills. The Earth Rat is very talented, careful and caring towards their loved ones, however, they tend to worry a little too much about the image they are trying to portray to others.
The Rat is an intelligent, observant, popular person who loves to attend parties and social gatherings at all times. People will feel relaxed in the presence of a Rat as they make friends with the greatest of ease and are able to keep a conversation at a high point. People often feel happy to take a Rat’s advice and opinions constructively.
The Rat is a very hard worker and will always use their ability, imagination and quick thinking to their advantage in the workplace. There are times when a Rat may lack confidence, this will affect how they put their ideas across in the workplace and this can often stop them from receiving the recognition they deserve.
Many Rats have made excellent journalists and writers and also excel at personnel or public relations work and any other job that involves being around people and the media. This is due to the fact that a Rat’s skills are appreciated in times of crisis; the Rat is an extremely resourceful character and is able to draw amazing powers to take it through the worst possible situations. The Rat will always want to be around a busy environment where there is a lot of action, if they ever find themselves in a restrictive environment they can become a perfectionist for regulation and everyday routine.
The Rat is an entrepreneur and will constantly be on the lookout for ways in which he/she can improve his/her lifestyle and wealth and will hardly ever let an opportunity pass by. Another attribute of the Rat is their attitude to money, the Rat is very thrifty and to some he/she may appear mean, the reason for this is because they like to keep their money within their family. The Rat is generally very generous to their partner, children, relatives and close friends. The Rat often finds it hard to deprive themselves of any luxury object they desires so they can often be generous to themselves.
The Rat hates waste and is rarely ever prepared to part with old rubbish around the home; this can cause clutter which can be very bad around the home. The Rat can be very greedy and will rarely refuse an invitation to a free event. Rats are generally great communicators although they can sometimes be a little careless by being quite critical about others to their face; if you want an honest unbiased opinion then the Rat is perfect for this, but do not fear if you are a Rat as people will be prepared to forgive you due to your bright and alluring mannerisms.
Throughout their long and exciting life, the Rat will make many friends and will find that they are especially suited to other Rats and Ox’s, Dragons and Monkeys, they can also get on well with Tigers, Snakes, Roosters, Dogs and Pigs; the sensitive Rabbit and Goat will find the Rat a little too critical and blunt for their liking.
The Horse and Rat will also find it difficult to get along with each other; the Rat craves security and will find the Horse’s unpredictable moods and rather independent nature a little upsetting. The Rat is very family orientated and will do anything to please those closest to them. They are exceptionally loyal to their parents and can be a very caring and loyal parent themselves.
