MANILA, Philippines - The person born in the year of the Rat is hardworking and thrifty. He rarely lets an opportunity pass and is constantly involved in many plans and schemes. Charming, intelligent and sociable, he is easy to get along with and enjoys parties and social gatherings. He cherishes friends, associates and family relations and often gets enmeshed in people’s lives and affairs.

The year of the Snake will be a variable year for Rats. You are accustomed to a fast-paced way of doing things, so the slow and measured demeanor of the Snake could hamper or slow down your progress. You should therefore focus on important things and maintain a positive outlook. Patience is your keyword this year.

At work, progress can be attained but with difficulty. On the other hand, 2013 will be an auspicious time to learn new things and improve your skills. For Rats seeking work for the first time or planning to shift careers, persistence should be your motto. The second half of the year will bring positive results. You will need to keep tight control of your personal funds. For businessmen, this is not the year for huge investments. It will also help if you double check the terms of contracts and agreements you will enter into.
Your social life will have a more positive outlook this year. You will enjoy many social events with family and friends. At home you will spearhead a domestic project but make sure the rest of your family is involved in the planning. If you’re intending to move residence, the last quarter of the year should be the best time to do so.

The first quarter of the year will see some good travel opportunities for you. You should also make time for rest and recreation, and even take on some volunteer work or a new hobby.

For Rats, 2013 is not a good time for romance so focus on some personal improvement project instead. Those who have partners should work hard at keeping your relationship well. Avoid potential conflicts by keeping communication lines open.
