Life in 2018 - No Shortcuts

Dogs and Rats don’t usually get along, so this year those born in the year of the Rat may have worries and concerns due to the general background Dog energy. Dogs and Rats are sometimes incompatible which may bring challenges in the physical world related to authority figures and career. Rats will really need to play it straight this year, not taking shortcuts in their careers or with those in power over them. There may be problems with government authorities, bosses or their actual fathers if Rats even think about doing the wrong thing. This year is a year for Rats being upfront and scrupulous in all their dealings.

According to the 2018 Chinese Horoscope, if a Rat gets into trouble, a friend or support person (who is not a Rat and particularly Ox, Dragon or Sheep) may be able to help by advocating on your behalf.

Love in 2018 - Surrounded by Fire Energy

Rats may benefit from meeting someone in their work environment or somehow connected to their career. Women Rats in particular have some good luck in love this year and may be introduced to someone through a work colleague. Male Rats will need to work a bit harder in love to attract good partners. Basically, although Dogs and Rats don’t normally get along, they both have a bit of Fire energy and it is through Fire that a love liaison can be spurred along. This might make for great sex, but commitment and a good relationship may need effort and energy expended this year to make it work long term.

Purchase of luxury items this year is also indicated and there is good luck around money. You can rely on someone to help you if you need support in your career or finances.

2018 Chinese Rat Horoscope Summary

Although there are challenges and some bad luck according to the 2018 Chinese Horoscope, Rats will have opportunities to gain extra money through hard work and working smarter. You can overcome difficulties by using your fiery passions and desires to get you what you want. But if you think that good luck will come to you by doing nothing, sorry but that’s not likely to be the case this year. Spending time outdoors with a little sunlight will benefit you, especially in the winter months. Rats need to stay in contact with the Earth which will further support them this year.
