FINAL THOUGHTS: Insights into the Metal Rat
The Rat is smart, ambitious, and successful, but unfortunately can resort to unscrupulous measures to make it happen. They may have a tendency to lie to get what they want. They tend to be lazy and lackadaisical over things of no interest to them. Be clear and precise when dealing with the Rat, as misinterpretations can be perceived. Ask the right questions. The rat can tangle the truth.

This year rely on patience and humor to get you through. Do not lose your head to temper. When faced with the Queen of Heart’s attitude and aggression….“Keep your Head.” Stay focused on the positive and let the rest go. The rest is probably not your business anyway. Don’t make it so.
