*The Rat is the first of the animals in 12 symbols of the horoscope and a rat year is always seen as an excellent time for new beginnings and renewals.  For that reason this year is an auspicious chance to rededicate ourselves to goals and aspirations.  The metal aspect lends strength and resolve to the rat’s natural characteristics of inquisitiveness and shrewdness leading to a year of growth.
