Personality and Horoscope for the Fire Rat

Fire rats are gentle and elegant in appearance but vigorous and brave in personality, so they are typical athletes. They know exactly how to dress themselves and they love outdoor activities such as hiking and travel. Fire rats are innocent, just like the naughty children, and they are not afraid of setbacks, always optimistic and enterprising.

Fire rats can faithfully to the work arranged by the superior. Despite the lack of tactful social skills and worldly wisdom, they are carful and persistent in work, winning the support and encouragement from the others. However, they should not be short-tempered rather than doing things in order step by step, so that they can control the whole thing.

With both civil and military skills, fire rats are very smart. If they give birth to children at an early age, the children will depend on them; on the contrary, the children will be peaceful. The relationship between husband and wife is harmonious and they have good fortune and a prosperous old age. Female fire rats are virtuous and prosperous. The traditional evaluation is accurate: fire rats are smart, clever, competent and sociable; they are crazy about all activities and they are very committed to these activities whether for moral cares or material benefits. Fire rats are chivalric, generous and straightforward, but they lack discipline sense and like to replace thinking with feelings; they hate constraint and control, and prefer to live a free life rather than the stable and limited one. Writer, mass communication and some artistic professions are very suitable for this kind of people who are independent. Of course, their personality also leads to the ups and downs in wealth.

My Feng Shui animal confusion (4 Replies ) Asked by G***n

I am a Fire Pig 1947 yet born in January 1948. According to the reading for Pig, it states that Pig people are wealthy, yet I've never been wealthy in my life. For Pigs lucky colours state White, Gold and Grey. Unlucky colours are Red, Green and Blue. Yet the latter are my preferred colours, but I can't wear them. My question is what if my actual birth year, which is Rat, is more applicable for me? Thankyou
