Chinese Calendar Astrology  

Most traditional Chinese astrologers follow the lunisolar calendar. According to this calendar, the New Year does not start with January 1 as in case of Gregorian calendar. In fact, the Chinese New Year does not fall on the same day every year because it has to do with new moon. It usually falls between January 21 and February 20. Therefore, a person born in January or February may have his birth sign of the previous year. To explain it further, a person born before January 1970 would have Yin Earth and not Yang Metal for his element.

Similarly although 1990 was the year of horse, a person born between January 1 and February 26 in 1990 would have snake as his animal sign and not horse. Snake year comes before the horse year and the horse year begins only after 27th January 1990.

Attributes of a Rat Personality

Rat people are dynamic and versatile and they can manipulate the events and obstacles to find out their ways. They can adapt themselves to every new situation quite easily. Rat personality exudes an immense appeal and can charm almost anyone.

Rats are, however, very selective in making friends. They therefore have very few friends. A rat hides his real emotions and feelings behind his external charm. He may be quick tempered and hostile.

Rats are very particular about details. They can be extremely intolerant and  callous when they are out to take revenge. So be careful before entering into a relationship with a rat.
