The Rat is also associated with the Earthly Branch (地支—dì zhī) Zi (子) and the midnight hours.
In Chinese culture, rats were seen as a sign of wealth and surplus.
Paired with the Celestial Stems (天干—Tiān gān), there is a 60-year calendrical cycle. Although zi is associated with water, the years also cycle through the five elements of nature (五行—wǔ xíng).
On the financial side, they like saving and can be stingy. However, their love for hoarding will sometimes cause them to waste money on unnecessary things.
Women born in the Rat year are the traditional women. They love keeping things organized and place great value on the family. Everything is taken care of by them and there is no need for their husband to worry. Outside of home, they’re also someone with a sense of responsibility and ability.
Rat’s fixed Earthly Branch is water, while Ox is earth.
Couples that are formed from Rat and Dragon will be able to understand each other well,
Similar to Dragons, Monkeys get along great with Rats,
