The ambitious Rat is the first animal in the Chinese Zodiac. The Rat enjoys being the first to try something new. Rats are visual people who are always taking in their surroundings. They are energetic and bubbly, and enjoy social events. You can go to a Rat for advice, but don’t expect them to come to you when they need help. Rats rarely share their personal problems. They are creative individuals who excel in positions that allow them to call their own shots. Rats make good musicians, administrators, and writers. They know how to make money, but they tend to spend it quickly. The possessive Rat is not good at sharing his favourite things or people.
