Year of the Rat
Written by Fercility JiangUpdated Jan. 24, 2022

Recent years of the Rat in Chinese zodiac are 2032, 2020, 2008, 1996, 1984, 1972, 1960, 1948 and 1936...The Rat is the first zodiac sign in the Chinese zodiac cycle. A Rat year occurs every 12 years.

According to the Chinese zodiac story, in the competition held by the Jade Emperor to decide the zodiac animals, the quick-witted rat asked the diligent ox to take him on a ride to cross the river and jumped down before the ox crossed the finish line. Thus the rat won the race and became the first of the zodiac animals, followed by ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig.

Chinese: 鼠年 (shǔ nián ‘Rat year’)
Earthly Branch: 子 (zǐ 1st of 12)
Representing hours: midnight hours (11pm–1am)
Yin/yang: yang

Rats are quick-witted, resourceful, and smart but lack courage. With rich imaginations and sharp observations, they can take advantage of various opportunities well.

In Chinese culture, rats represent working diligently and thriftiness, so people born in a Rat year are thought to be wealthy and prosperous.

Men born in a Rat year are very curious so they tend to try their hands at anything and they can deal with tasks skillfully.

Due to a lack of courage, as well as good command skills, they are not capable of being leaders. Opportunistic and picky as male Rats are, they do not have broad minds but take a narrow view of things.

Women born in a Rat year are pretty, smart, and lovely. They have quick minds and dexterous hands, and are able to learn anything. They are always considerate of their families and friends.

Most compatible zodiac signs with a Rat: Rat, Ox, Dragon, or Monkey

The Rat and Ox have complementary characters and will help each other in their work and home lives.
The Rat and Dragon will have a good relationship and support each other.
Couples including a Rat and a Monkey will get along well and be happy.
Least compatible zodiac signs with a Rat: Rabbit, Horse, or Rooster

A Rat clashes easily with a Rabbit, a Horse or a Rooster. They lack tolerance toward each other and it’s hard to sustain a lasting peace.
