SOME FACTS ABOUT RAT PEOPLE
The Mouse is the first animal sign in the Chinese zodiac cycle. In Chinese astrology, each year is related to a Chinese zodiac animal according to a 12-year cycle.
Rats are quick-witted, resourceful, and smart but lack courage. With rich imaginations and sharp observations, they can take advantage of various opportunities well. In Chinese culture, rats represent working diligently and thriftiness, so people born in a Rat year are thought to be wealthy and prosperous
The most recent years of the Rat are 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020
