Calling all astrology buffs! According to the Chinese Zodiac, the Year of 2008 is a Year of the Rat(an Earth element), which begins on February 4, 2008 and ends on January 25, 2009. First in the cycle of 12 Animal signs, Rat Year begins the sequence and recurs every twelfth year. It is a time of renewal in many ways, so they say...
A Rat Yearis a time of hard work, activity, and renewal. According to... mystical sources...this is a good year to begin a new job, get married, launch a product or make a fresh start. Ventures begun now may not yield fast returns, but rest assured, opportunities will come for people who are well prepared and resourceful. So get those notebooks out, people, and start making goals!
The best way for you to succeed is to be patient, let things develop slowly, and make the most of every opening you can find. People born an Earth Rat are said to be logical realists, shrewd, charming, ambitious, and inventive.
