When a Western astrology-born Piscean arrives in the Chinese Year of the Rat, it is likely to produce a most amiable personality. Astrologists centuries ago symbolized the Rat as a very brainy creature who will think things through before taking actions. If these clever, quick-thinking characteristic traits are mixed with the sensitivity of Pisces, a rather kind and considerate personality emerges. The bright sharp mind of the Rat seems to toughen and loosen up the dreamy Pisces a little, and this makes these personalities finely balanced. The Piscean Rat is sensitive without being overly so and also very practical and thoughtful.
A Piscean Rat is sometimes quite shy and quiet in nature, but they will stand up for themselves and others if necessary. These individuals hate unfairness or discrimination, and can often completely forget their shyness if they are angry. The Piscean Rat is intelligent and caring, and they tend to take life rather seriously. These people like to be neat and organized, and are generally mature in their attitude to responsibility. They love to help others, but are not fans of social settings or group activities. These Pisceans have a creative side to their personalities and have an appreciation for arts and music.
The Piscean Rat enjoys spending time at home and will enjoy making their surroundings as relaxing as possible. These people prefer periods of quiet to relax and wind down rather than noisy, sociable or energetic activities. A Piscean Rat is happier with a book or watching a movie than going out socializing and mixing with lots of other people. These personalities usually do not have much of a problem settling down in long-term personal relationships. They are often not all that reluctant to give up their single status in favor of a more permanent commitment, finding it easy. They do not take pleasure in being emotionally alone in life.
An intuitive character, the Piscean Rat is level-headed and fair-minded, with plenty of compassion. They make likable friends and workmates who, although they are not highly sociable, are reliable and loyal. These Pisceans have fine memories and never seem to forget birthdays or anniversaries. They are extremely family-oriented and always try to show much consideration to those they love. These individuals are inclined to wish to have large families and many of them will marry young. The Piscean Rat craves love and warmth, and as they are not really ambitious, these will be their main goals in life.
These personalities, like all others, have their weaknesses, and over-reactions that will appear occasionally. A Piscean Rat is prone to get upset fairly easily sometimes, as they can be immensely touchy to the comments of others. These people are often known for bursting into tears unexpectedly. They are not normally over-sensitive to life, but take personal insults extremely badly and will usually over-react to them. This will be displayed as crying, tantrums or sulking. You will definitely know when a Piscean Rat is offended by the words of others.
