The industrious and responsible Rooster, master of 2017, is not too loyal towards representatives of the Chinese sign of the Rat. This is because the Rat is an animal which by virtue of its trickery and cunning knows how to adapt to all conditions, and adjust to various circumstances; it possesses a sharp mind, which many dislike it for, it's very prudent (sometimes even greedy), resourceful, but at the same time, it's a social and friendly animal. By virtue of its great ability to adapt at will, the Rat can quickly and easily find common ground with the patron of this year, which loves integrity and fairness. For this reason it will have to put its trickery and sophistication behind it, and act fairly. This will be quite unusual and a bit difficult for the Rat, but it won't take more than two or three weeks before representatives of this sign start to pave the way to their success, despite the fact that it will be far more difficult for them to achieve their goals during this period than in the preceding ones. However, those who were born in the year of the Rat will understand perfectly that they either work hard and put in as much effort as they can, or they are left on their own.
Representatives of this sign will achieve the most results in managerial positions, in jurisprudence, and also in creative professions. In the year of the Red Rooster, the Rat should work a lot on itself, on its inner peace, which is really in need of self-analysis and a re-examination of its life values and principles. Despite the fact that representatives of this sign will be somewhat strained in such an environment, they must get a grip and start to control their feelings and emotional state, in order to avoid getting into conflict with those around them. You must be patient, and start to make active use of your innate wisdom. Only then will you be able to win the favor of the contentious patron of 2017 and be on the road to success and new achievements.
To a certain extent the Rat won't be able to keep up with current work matters. For this reason, a lot of its time will be spent on work, leaving virtually nothing for its personal life and relationships. For this reason, representatives of this sign should seize each moment, every minute, to call their relatives and loved ones, to ask how they are, what plans they have, how they feel, and so on. This will help you to always stay up to date with what is going on within the family, and to take an active part in demonstrating compassion. It will also give you the chance to avoid fights and fall-outs because of alienation and the indifference of one of the spouses. But when such a moment comes up, when nobody and nothing will be able to separate you from your family, make an effort to organize some kind of interesting and effective pastime together, so that there will be something to remember until the next weekend. The Rat must use every opportunity, no matter how small, to give attention to its loved ones one way or another, to give gifts, surprises, and to have family evenings. These actions will only strengthen relationships and add a little romance when it has probably already started to fade away.
In order to establish warm, affectionate and harmonious relationships, representatives of this sign need to cast aside their egoism, and start to listen to and understand their spouse. In this way they will easily find the way to the heart of the one they love, and stay there for a long time. There are certainly no couples who don't have a disagreement from time to time. However, those born in the year of the Rat have to be careful in situations when there is a protracted argument, as offense or disagreement could become the primary cause of a breakup or even divorce. There is no point waiting for your partner to guess all your wishes and thoughts on their own. If you have any, then don't keep quiet about them. Don't be worried that your partner won't want to listen to you, or won't understand. The more calmly and clearly you tell them what is bothering you, the easier it will be for your partner to accept the situation and help you to find a way out of it. The Rat must learn to consider the best interests and opinions of its loved ones, so that it will be possible to count on their help and support at any moment.
In 2017 the Rat must demonstrate rationality, and become a realist, since by setting themselves an unrealistic goal, representatives of this sign will risk being left with nothing. It's very important already at the start of the year to decide on your priorities, desires, to analyze your own abilities (relying exclusively on yourself and not on anyone else!), and only then should you make clear and concrete plans. The stars advise the Rat to take on work themselves, determine their own strong and weak points, discover new talents, trying their strength in other directions, in order to increase their productivity and improve their chances of success. Let this be just a hobby for a while, but after some time, when your skills are already quite polished, it would make sense to start thinking about your own business projects.
Representatives of this sign will be able to achieve the most results only by doing what they do best. For this reason you shouldn't burn the midnight oil or get too attached to work which you don't like, it's time to look for options for developing your potential. The Fire Rooster loves people who aren't afraid to work. For this reason it will give many promising offers and wonderful opportunities to those representatives of the Chinese sign of the Rat who try as hard as they can to find suitable work. With this in mind, the Rat's financial standing will improve significantly during this period, and it can expect various earnings, bonuses, a salary increase, and additional sources of profit. However, regrettably you won't manage to save money, because a large part of it will go towards the development of your business, or serious purchases for your family.
