The rat is one of 12 animals in the Chinese zodiac, which is based on a 12-year cycle. The Year of the Rat begins on Chinese New Year 2020.

The rat is associated with the earthly branch in Chinese astrology, and the midnight hours. In terms of yin and yang, it is considered ‘yang’ and represents the beginning of a new day.

People born in the year of the rat are thought to be clever, quick thinking and successful, although they are also generally content with living a quiet and peaceful life. They enjoy saving and collecting, with little financial hardship, and live organised lives without seeking praise or recognition.

People born in this year are also instinctive, alert and adaptable, although they have tendencies to be timid and stubborn.
