The Year of the Rat

I was born the Year of the Rat. (No, that was not 1912 - and, no, that was not 1996 either…) Looking at the Chinese zodiac I read the following; “People born in the Year of the Rat are noted for their charm and attraction for the opposite sex. They work hard to achieve their goals, acquire possessions, and are likely to be perfectionists. They are basically thrifty with money. Rat people are easily angered and love to gossip. Their ambitions are big, and they are usually very successful.” Of course, I find this portrait strikingly dissimilar to my real self! But I will not enter into a counter-analysis of rat people’s personality…

In any case, rats are experts in avoiding traps and dangers, and this might be exactly what we need in a time where crises and pitfalls seem to be hiding everywhere… Maybe, rather than making overoptimistic, unrealistic wishes, we should just ask for the gift and the luck of walking safely, with caution, on the bumpy roads we travel… May the little rats be our teachers in caution and wisdom rather than in seduction and greediness!
