Sagittarius – Rat
The Chinese sign of the Rat corresponds to the European sign of Sagittarius, so the month of the Rat corresponds to the period from November 22 – December 21 of the sign of Sagittarius.
Both Sagittarius and Rat are action zodiac signs, particularly dynamic and very changeable by nature. The Sagittarius/Rat makes decisions without thinking too much about the consequences. They seize every opportunity, live the moment to the full and defend their freedom of movement at all costs.
And those born in the sign of Sagittarius and Rat are the most rebellious of the zodiac and are always involved in risky activities and sometimes suspicious affairs.
Incorrigibly cheerful and optimistic, Sagittarian enthusiasm gives the members of this Sign a zest for life. Sporty and firm, these dynamic people are driven by seemingly blind faith, telling themselves that all is for the best in the best of possible worlds.
And indeed, for them, it usually does turn out for the best in the end. These are born extroverts who, whether physically or metaphorically, like to roam free.
Moreover, there’s something of the visionary in every Sagittarian and, though natives of this group are often blunt and tactless, very often their words and ideas hit the mark.
At work and play, religion, politics and the law are the traditional occupations that suit the nature of this Sign.
But many Sagittarians find their way into school
Publishing also attracts these people, and if they do write, there will be a strong philosophical or spiritual slant to their work.

Sport will figure highly in the lives of Sagittarians, whether it be as a main career or as a part-time pursuit.
In love and relationships, Sagittarians, who are not the most constant of the Signs, value their freedom and hate to be tied down. They are restless souls with a strong idealistic streak, which makes them seek knights in shining armor, or damsels in distress.
A partner who is prepared to share their dream and sense of adventure will win the Sagittarian heart forever.
In intimate relationships, love and laughter are essential, and a light-hearted attitude to life’s problems will help to smooth the bumps through the inevitable ups and downs of life.
In health matters, Sagittarius governs hips and thighs – areas which tend to become overweight among the people of this Sign – especially as middle-age approaches.
Walking and riding, pursuits particularly associated with the Archer, form ideal exercises for this problem.
However, accidents may affect their hips, so they should take precautions against any serious falls.
Strong and hearty types in general, the Sagittarian appetite for rich, spicy food can all too often take its toll on the liver.
Where wealth is concerned, reputed to be the luckiest sign of the Zodiac, Sagittarians somehow always manage to land on their feet.
This ‘good omen’ streak follows them in their financial dealings, and can in some, fuel an urge to gamble or take heady risks.
However, whether it’s their happy-go-lucky natures, or whether Lady Luck especially smiles upon these – her favorites – the Sagittarius seem to live a charmed and fortunate life.
The Chinese Astrological cycle begins with the Rat.
The Rat is full of charm, loves company and is somewhat of a deviant. Although amiable and generous, the Rat is also very egotistical, calculating, and manipulative.
Its outward behavior is generally calm. However, the Rat is capable of concealing aggression. When frustrated or crossed, the Rat becomes manipulative, aggressive, backbiting, vengeful, and obstinate.
The Rat is independent and careful, keenly aware of the need to protect its internal universe and accumulate wealth. It likes money and must succeed at all costs. However, the Rat can be selfish and readily abuse others, who must serve its plans. It is discreet in matters that the Rat is concerned with and able to turn almost everything to its own advantage. The Rat is a skilled organizer and can adapt itself to all situations.
The Rat usually view its environment as a domain to be investigated, mapped out, and controlled. It is the leader, the innovator, and instigator, who pokes his nose everywhere. The more you seek to hide something, the more curious and suspicious the Rat will be. It will not rest until the mystery is solved or the secret is revealed.
In its emotional life, the Rat is sentimental and generous to those it likes, particularly its family. Once its confidence has been gained, the Rat can become an intimate friend.
