Water (Feb. 15, 1972 – Feb. 02, 1973)
The Water Rat it is definitely going to have a busy time.
They are going to be asked to take part in common projects, where they could prove their value and experience. They could even get to live a third youth, as they are going to be surrounded and appreciated by younger people.
It is a good moment to take care of their health: to adapt or to change their lifestyle, which primarily involves physical exercises and diets.
Wood (Feb. 02, 1984 – Feb. 19, 1985)
The Wood Rat may encounter crises on a professional level. Their capacity to adapt or to put up with new technologies may be challenged.
Should this be a reason for concern? They have lived through greater things than these.
Having the basis of vast professional experience, they can go along with the changes that they are expected to do pretty easily.
It is recommended to pay maximum attention to every negotiation that they are part of and to every paper or contract that they will have to sign, so that they won’t suffer on a financial level.
Fire (Feb.19, 1996 – Feb. 06, 1997)
The Fire Rat find themselves at a turning point in their lives. Challenges arise from several fields: professional, of partnership and of couple’s relationship.
Professionally, they are in a competition for a leading position or for the position of an informal leader.
Now, it would be a good time to prove their worth and capacity without going into any polemics.
On the family level, they may have to renew their vows; they would better give credit to the problems their life partner may raise.
Earth (Feb. 10, 1948 – Jan. 28, 1949)
The Earth Rat will have to face a 2019 with many challenges, which will force them to make some long term decisions.
On a professional level, the situation is kind of complicated; changes that could affect their position may occur.
Not all decisions will be on their favor, but these could arouse their ambition or open their eyes.
For some of them, however, there is the chance of getting promoted on some positions with more responsibilities, but they have doubts regarding their training and capacity of handling these responsibilities.
On a social level, it is a year of decision-making, when they will have to make a selection of their friends and associates; they have the chance of meeting important people that could help them in the future.
Metal (Jan. 28, 1960 – Feb. 14, 1961)
• For the Metal Rat this is going to be a time full of activities and offerings. Although they might be young at age and experience, they enter the fire of professional evaluations.
We don’t expect great signs of progress or promotions, but with a lot of work and faith, they could turn out to be future candidates for important positions.
The Rat has the biggest character, ways of approach, goals and objectives differences appear between signs that are on the same axis.
That is why we can say that this year is going to be very demanding , with many challenges and obstacles.
However, this aspect will, under no circumstances, rule out the chances of success on various plans, but it rather warns on the efforts he will have to do in order to reach his/her goals.
By his nature, it is always on the move, alert and brisk, intelligent and sensing every possibility that comes along.
But the future events could surpass their anticipation capacity, making them question their talent or value.
It would be better if they thought about those situations as challenges or trials; if they try to adapt and keep up with the events, they could end up learning on the go things that may turn out to be very useful for them.
This is the moment they must prove their true value.
It would be for their own good not to let themselves get overwhelmed by situations and abandon while looking for something “more suitable” for them, because they would miss exactly the opportunity to accumulate an amazing experience.
The Rat could very well take some time off for themselves or take a step back, precisely in order to have a clearer and more detached idea regarding the problems they are facing and in order to find solutions for these problems.
Focusing continuously and without a break on problems cannot be a very effective way to diagnose and solve the problems.
Basically, it would be of great help to pay more attention to their own selves in order to observe and analyze themselves.
They can find help inside their families, as they are the people that observe them better and are determined to offer them their full support.
Being focused on their problems, they may be tempted to neglect the dialogue and the time spent with their loved ones; they would shortly realize that this is a wrong way to go.
The financial field could only be affected by their negligence in counting the sums of money they have to return or to pay, as well as of those sums that they should receive.
The fail in keeping a record of all the papers and documents could create difficulties for them.
We already mentioned that this year will be characterized by challenges and difficulties. It would be good to take care of their behavior on the social level because ego outbursts could bring onto them, powerful enemies. But it also is the right time to prove their professional and relational qualities.
