Rat – 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008



The year of the Pig promises progress and positive change for those born in the year of the Rat. The Pig is a friend to the Rat and will help them obtain new heights in their career. Under the blessing of the sun, the Rat is set to benefit from the support of those around them. It is a good idea to make allies and strengthen relationships with possible benefactors this year. Now is the time to acknowledge the positives in your life in order to succeed. Harmony is extremely important this year. If you want to reach your goals, you must learn to work well with others and avoid unnecessary competition.


The Rat is blessed in love this year as well. Both single and attached individuals have a high chance of expanding their social circles. Those looking for love have many opportunities to meet someone new; however, you must still work for it. You can easily attract people, but you should still put in effort when it comes to your appearance, charm and attitude. Attending social events this year is encouraged. However, if you are married or attached, it is better to spend this time with your partner. Social events may distract from your time with each other. Your charm may also make those around you jealous, so be careful. Otherwise, enjoy this blessed year of auspicious love. This is a good year for children.


Health is the only area where Rats may face some hardship this year. For Rats born in the year of the water Rat (1912 and 1972), be extra vigilant with regard to your bladder, kidney and urinary system. Remain hydrated and avoid damp or wet areas. Be especially careful during the first half of the year as your health is more sensitive and you can be prone to small illnesses. Do not over-strain or push yourself too far, and ensure you remain hydrated. Try to avoid alcohol as your tolerance has dropped and you may be prone to emotional conflict if you’re not in the right mindset. Make sure to connect with nature through daily walks or slow jogging.


While your wealth is fair this year, avoid getting too attached to your wealth or recklessly seeking more. Money will come, but once you let it go through some risky investment or reckless endeavour, you will never see it come back. You must be careful with your wealth as you may need to spend more on your health and other expenses this year. Always ensure you have a healthy balance in your bank account for emergencies. Do not carry anything too valuable with you when you are outdoors. Make sure you thoroughly research all possible investments before making any decision. Remember that ‘haste makes waste’.
