In the legend of the Great Race, which determined the order of the zodiac animals, the clever Rat rode on the Ox’s back and just as they were about to reach the finish line, jumped off to secure the first position. This story not only speaks of the Rat’s intelligence but also its strategic nature.
Being born under the sign of the Rat is both a blessing and a challenge. While Rats are intelligent and agile, they must be wary of their cautious nature. Embracing their strengths and understanding their weaknesses will allow them to navigate life’s challenges with grace and resilience.
