The Rat is expressed as a charming and diplomatic personality in the ancient texts of Chinese astrology. All who are born in their astrological years are thought to procure some of this creatures passive and assertive charm. In Western astrology, people arriving in the sun sign of Libra are believed to have very similar tactful and charismatic characteristic traits. So, the combined Libra Rat individual is extremely adaptable, considerate and appealing. They are the kind of personalities that are difficult to not notice, as they usually have an alluring presence in both their appearance and communication.
A Libra Rat has a composed, refined aura, and carries a bright and mostly positive, cheery disposition. These are not quiet people, but they are intelligent, caring, friendly and extremely fair. The astrological sign of Libra is usually represented by a symbol of balanced scales. This is an indication of the fairness associated with these personalities, and in the Libra Rat this diplomacy is very strong. With the influence of the impartial Rat attached to the personality, you will not usually find fairer individuals than these. They are always able to easily see both sides to everything, and so they can make good judgments.
Libra Ra's are often quite sociable and they are fine communicators who really enjoy the company of others. They seem to find the views and ideas of others fascinating, and make the most wonderful listeners. A Libra Rat will usually listen without interrupting, and then give his or her opinions with tactfully chosen words. These characters have quick and progressive thinking, but many of them do not use this intellect to its full potential. They have a tendency to be a little lazy when it comes to studying. These Libras tend to be far more socially intelligent than they are academic.
In relationships, a Libra Rat is trusting and respectful, accommodating and understanding. They enjoy being pampered and will want their soulmate to be sensual and romantic like they are. Emotionally, the kindhearted Libra Rat is well-harmonized and does not appear to suffer from mood fluctuations. They can sometimes be a little bossy, but this will generally be in a playful manner rather than a serious one. Their natural charisma tends to get them their own way without others even realizing it. To relax, these personalities like to escape from normal routine; they love trying new things and can often be encouraged to get away for the weekend.
The Libra Rat personality has lots of outstanding and admirable qualities, but it does have a weakness. These particular personalities can be prone to gossiping about others behind their back. This negative side to their persona varies in strength between each Libra Rat, but is usually only slight and occasional. Their sense of natural justice and discernment prevents their gossip trait from being too nasty or an intentional habit. The natural curiosity from the Rat's Chinese astrological influence is probably responsible for this weakness. These Libras are likely to talk about others when they have nothing else to do.
