    You female rats will have good luck in career because the female benefactor represented by the Taiyin Star will help your career development a lot; you will get help from others even if you are in troubles.

But if your leader is a female rat, you will be more likely to get recognition and promotion.

You female rats will have neither obvious development nor setback in the love relationship. You can make acquaintance with many working partners, even fall in love with someone. However, you are not recommended to focus on love because you will encounter the career development peak in 2017.

    If you are married, you should not get too close to the opposite sex; otherwise, you will have improper love and bring yourself and your family unnecessary troubles, even suffer from the divorce because of this. So you should be careful.


    You will have bad fortune in terms of health. Generally, you may have both mental and physical problems, especially for you rats who need to work hard because you are more likely to overdraft your health. When you are away from home, you should pay more attention to your personnel safety because you may suffer a bleeding disaster if you are not careful. If you often fall ill in this year, you can manage a wedding to alleviate the effects of clashing with Tai Sui.
