Rats represent wisdom because they are the first of the Chinese Zodiacs. Rats are also outgoing, optimistic and highly adaptable in any environment. They also have to power of acute observation and anticipation. Like the saying “Rats forsake a sinking ship,” a rat is aware of impending doom and will flee before it occurs. Because of this, they are easily liked, and others always want to help them. Rats are often artistic creators, inventors, or innovators. Their weaknesses are that they tend to be stubborn, wordy, greedy, devious, and love to gossip.

Your 2022 Prediction:
Rats are hard workers and like to plan ahead. In the fast-paced Tiger year, be prepared for change. At work, you’ll see more success if you have a Plan A, B and C… and so on. Be ready to pivot. At times, you may feel that luck is not on your side, but be aware there is opportunity in every crisis. Remember that you are smart and can adapt to make the best of changing opportunities. To improve your money and success in interpersonal relationships, keep these two things in mind: Stay calm and avoid overreacting. Rats have lots of energy and never give up, but you do sometimes tend to panic first. Believe in yourself!

Physical health and safety is important in 2022. At home, rising stress levels can affect all relationships, so make extra effort to keep your mood in check. Focus on self-growth, eating healthy, getting adequate rest and exercising.
