2017 Chinese Horoscope Predictions For The Rat, Year of The Rooster
2017 Rat Horoscopes
The following are general characteristics of the Chinese Astrology 2017 for a Rat person. A more detailed investigation of a Rat person’s personalised yearly horoscope would obviously reveal more.
The year of the Rooster will be a year with much activity for you.
In 2017, dear Rat, be nimble and quick in order to stay one step ahead of challenges you could encounter in the rat race. You have all the smarts it takes to not get caught in any mousetraps being set. The sooner you embrace this attitude, the quicker you’ll find your pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. The Rooster year is one in which you won’t receive so much sympathy from Mr. Cock-a-doodle-do. Your furry wit is the delight of your rat pack, but it’s hard work that’s required for you to succeed this year. Put your talents to good use and pay attention to detail. You’ll also need to look your best for all the events you’ll be invited to attend. Clear out the ratty, worn-out favorites in your closet, even if they once flattered your figure up. This year, appearances count. Go shopping for a new wardrobe, Rat.
The 2017 Rat Horoscope shows that you can expect a festive and fun Chinese New Year 2017, a continuation of the good fortune from the previous Monkey year, although Rooster’s influence requires Rat to work harder and contribute more. Accomplish all you can this year and smartly pursue all opportunities because the next two years will be a rest period until you begin a new cycle in Rat year 2020.
Most Rats are known for their sentimental but never overly demonstrative love escapades. Home and family life are very important to them. Most Rats care a great deal for their family, especially for their parents and relatives.
Because of their appealing, bright and happy personality many Rats have a close circle of outgoing friends and chatting loved ones.
The Love Horoscope for Rat in 2017 shows that this would be a good year for the Rat in terms of relationship and networking. Single Rats would have opportunities to meet new people for possible relationships. If this is the Rat’s main intention, then a pair of mandarin ducks as the prime décor in the bedroom may help to get things rolling.
Sometimes a chance meeting changes your life. If you’re single and feeling tugs on your heartstrings to find your soul mate, place yourself in a positive environment where this is most likely to happen. Joe’s Bar and Grill may not be it – but then again it could be. A spirited mamma or papa could be your ticket to happiness. You like to go out on the town and good conversation is a potent aphrodisiac for turning you on. Get out there and mingle. Imagine the tingle you felt in your fingers when your first love held your hand – that should inspire you to not waste any time in making an effort to find romance. The Rooster year brings you lots of opportunity in this department.
For Rats that are happily paired, don’t neglect your loved ones at home. Remember, it’s a Rooster year, and the Rooster has lots of ambition but also takes care of the hens in the henhouse. That is how the Rooster insures loyalty. Don’t be surprised if a new little bundle of joy enters your life. Take your mate on a date to keep those passionate fires burning. You’ll be glad you did.
The 2017 chinese forecast warn that those Rats in existing relationships may experience slight problems in 2017 caused by arguing over the most trivial matters. If you’re already in a secure partnership, you may find yourself so busy you don’t have time for each other. This could start rumors in the family, perhaps one or both of you is unhappy or looking elsewhere? This isn’t the case. But to know what really is going on, you’ll need to maintain a certain level of open communication with your partner.
A Rooster of Fidelity at the main door may help in 2017 keeping the causes at bay. Overall try to be more tolerant in your relationship; finding out the real causes to problems instead of making impulsive decisions may well salvage your relationship.
The 2017 chinese zodiac shows that male Rats may experience problems and heartaches caused by the opposite sex. It is wise to think long and hard before doing anything that may hurt your current relationship.
According to Chinese tradition, Rats are considered a symbol of good luck and wealth. In business, many hard working Rats know how to hang onto a penny. They don’t easily lend money to others. Rats rarely mix social friendships with any business transactions.
The 2017 Chinese Astrology for Rat predicts that this is a beneficial money year for you. Rats will be able to spend a little more (and even squirrel some away). Remember to set aside a bit for travel and vacations. Otherwise, you probably already have a list of what you want to buy. Succumbing to too many temptations could prevent you in 2017 from doing all you would like. Rats would also find it helpful to save towards certain requirements as well as consider setting something aside for the longer term.
Financially, you could strike gold in 2017. Again, smart use of your talents, maintaining a quick pace and persistently working hard could earn you a place at the end of the rainbow. Rat, you’re clever enough to outsmart even a leprechaun. Yet, if you’re not careful, you’ll feel like your wallet has sprung a leak with more holes than Swiss cheese! Wait until the end of the year to reward yourself with a new car, cruise or fancier residence. Pay the piper his due by making sure your bills are taken care of first. Then, enjoy what you have.
This year, more than other years, it might take some fancy footwork to balance your checkbook. Money seems to go out faster than it comes in. Therefore, don’t go on any shopping sprees until the bills are paid. It’s true that you can expect an increase in earnings this year, but Rooster energy is conservative. You’ll come out ahead IF you don’t live beyond your means. Make big purchases at the year’s end – unless you’ve found an incredible bargain or investment before then.
When you worry about finances, you lessen the brainpower that you could use for more important endeavors. Therefore, dear Rat, let thriftiness be your new way of operating. Unexpected expenses are likely to come your way this year. You could even be asked to start up a new business and make a sizeable investment to get it going. One reason many of you Rats become entrepreneurs is that you prefer using your mind instead of physical labor. If you watch your cash flow carefully, you’ll have enough money to do what’s important – and have fun! When you focus on success, April, May, and the last quarter of the year could yield sizeable increases in your income. Celebrate with cheese, crackers and champagne.
Most Rats know exactly how to go about getting what they want. Many determined and persistent Rats are movers and shakers. Many of them like to boss others around. Did you know that providing health information, selling real estate, selling advertising in various media, selling physical fitness equipment could provide you with a comfortable income?
When it comes to work, remember that there are often too many differences for Rooster-types and the Rat to be friends. You tolerate each other and that’s about as far as you like to go in working together. Enjoy socializing and connecting with people who share common goals.
Remember the story of the Pied Piper who played his flute to draw out the rats of the city? With your gift of gab you probably could convince the piper to actually hand the flute over to you so that you could be in charge! In fact, this year you could experience a comparable situation. People will come running to do your bidding when you work hard. If you’ve chosen to work in sales or promotions, this is a year where you can be especially persuasive to attract a sizeable increase in income. You could also relocate if necessary to receive the promotion that lands you in the winner’s circle. If you’re self-employed, be sure to pat yourself on the back.
Broadcast your desires to a network of friends and admirers. Chances are they’ll help you find the new opportunity or enterprise you’ve been seeking. The best months to be moving up the career ladder are April, May, and September through the end of the Rooster year. You can start the wheels in motion anytime. The key is to act fast. Your foundation for success will consist of persistent hard work and creating a network of mutual support.
Dear Rat, the 2017 horoscope predictions show that is more likely to stay in your current job in 2017, as you will be tempted by promises of raises and promotions. These are serious offers and should not be taken lightly. However, if you do wish to job hunt, be aware you will have to call in lots of favors from past contacts to really get the energy moving.
Overall 2017 is a year to keep a low profile for fear of troubles in matters of law and backstabbing. A good item for your door would be the Guardian Fu Dogs intended to keep your family from harm and slander. For the Rat, wearing a Jade Sword Pendant or keeping it in the wallet may help in avoiding much hurt caused by jealous rivals or ill-meaning ‘friends’. A valuable advise would be to keep your calm even if the other party is raging on. Rat, try to maintain peace and keep communications in harmony. Your horoscope shows that it is best not to offend anyone.
Rat ladies would have a slightly better year 2017 in terms of finance and career. There may be opportunities for promotions but beware, they do not come easy. For both genders, a Ru Yi on the work table may help as a quiet assertion of your authority at work.
The Rat’s health in 2017
The Rat’s health would be average in 2017. The most important detail is to note what you eat and take extra care of your kidneys and bladder. A Wu Lou in the East corner of your house and another in the office may help to weaken the harmful effects on your health.
Rat-Aries: In the Chinese Year of the Fire Rooster, the pressure is on but the rewards are great.

So, in 2017, decide what you want to do, get projects started and keep them moving.
Rat-Taurus: In the Chinese Year of the Fire Rooster, despite some uncertainty, whatever project you have in mind, it’s time to spread your wings and broaden your horizons. Regarding your most intimate relationships and close friendships, the 2017 chinese astrology points out that what you can’t work out most probably was NOT meant to be.
Rat-Gemini: In the Chinese Year of the Fire Rooster, current astrological transits encourage you to do everything you can to get your talents and abilities recognized. In your private life, respect and passion are the secrets of a successful romance.
Rat-Cancer: In the Chinese Year of the Fire Rooster, it will be easier than expected to find another job particularly if you have a set of clear goals.

Make sure energy-driven systems are working as they should, and not running in a wasteful or dangerous way.
Rat-Leo: In the Chinese Year of the Fire Rooster, on the occupational front, several avenues for personal advancement open up for some of you. Planet Jupiter favors pairing with a partner. On the personal side, in 2017, a surprise call or visit evokes emotional reactions. You could be a bit overwhelmed.
Rat-Virgo: In the Chinese Year of the Fire Rooster, some of you may find work with a different employer and as a result your life in 2017 could become more secure financially and emotionally. On the relationships or on the work fronts, be careful, the chinese horoscope shows that you could unwittingly contribute to someone’s sorrow by being emotionally cool or overly involved with work, to the neglect of your relationship.
Rat-Libra: In the Chinese Year of the Fire Rooster, the focus is on generating more income. If you are willing and ready to take a chance, take off in a new direction. In your personal life, if you made mistakes recently (rushing headlong into a clandestine affair), acknowledging them and facing them is better than hiding them.
Rat-Scorpio: In the Chinese Year of the Fire Rooster, many of you will be experiencing an active restructuring of your basic foundation. If you feel unhappy within your marriage or partnership, get counseling for your Self from a professional or, better yet, go to counseling with your mate.

Rat-Sagittarius: In the Chinese Year of the Fire Rooster, the Universe might not be supporting you as you think it should. The ups and downs are part of the merry-go-round.

This is not only the time to look for balance in your relationship and work life, but to bring greater balance in your financial affairs. All will bloom!
Rat-Capricorn: In the Chinese Year of the Fire Rooster, new beginnings require that you contact someone who is already successful in your type of occupation.

Respect and passion not only help you court and win the one you want, but also make existing relationships better!
Rat-Aquarius: In the Chinese Year of the Fire Rooster, to achieve a breakthrough you need to clear your mind of all the clutter. Are you ready to undertake a new project in 2017? Well, if your job is offering very little in terms of financial recompense, switch career and become an expert in your own field. On the other hand, if you push too hard, too fast, the horoscope shows that you may find yourself in danger of losing credibility with higher-ups.
Rat-Pisces: In the Chinese Year of the Fire Rooster, all systems are GO. Life is full of opportunities for you in 2017. On the work front, be daring because there are good moneymaking opportunities for many of you. NOW is the time to go further, to push ahead. In your private life, a get together with friends turns out to be pleasant diversion. Current astrological configuRations seem to be excellent for connecting and for embarking in a new romantic liaison. Warm loving hugs always work wonders!
Dear Rat, the Rat Horoscope 2017 shows that if you have high self-esteem, you will take initiative and explore the future from a more secure base. Whatever you start in 2017 has excellent chances to succeed. Never ever give up!
Rat February 2017: If you’ve ever seen a rat run from a cat, you’ll likely see just a blur that made you ask, “What was that?” This is likely to describe how your February begins. Even without a cat on your tail, you’re running so fast that no one can keep up with you. Stop a moment to catch your breath! It would be in your favor to slow down and let others know what you’re up to. When you share what’s on your rapid-fire mind, you impress people with your creativity and good ideas. Your supporters will help you achieve your goals. Listen and garner support. The month ends on a romantic note.
Rat March 2017: You may be feeling irritated by all the Rooster energy afoot. You don’t like showoffs. Furthermore, everyone around you seems to be at each other’s throats. You’re tempted to slink into your cubbyhole and wish the world away. Instead, help your friends and coworkers reach compromises and peaceful solutions. You have a way with words and people listen to you. Everyone will thank you later. This is a great month to accept social invitations. You’ll also have plenty of opportunity to widen your circle of friends. Beginning the 25th, you may feel a deep yearning for closeness. Enjoy your time with your loved ones.
Rat April 2017: Fiery Rooster energy abounds all month. Avoid the backlash that could result from not towing the line. With everyone carrying their share of responsibility, goals will be accomplished. However, if the boss is too demanding or unappreciative you could seek a better offer elsewhere. This is a good month for career advancement. Go into your cubbyhole and plan a strategy for the duration of 2017. With hard work, you are able to climb up the career ladder. You also have spring fever now and want to wander in green fields of clover. That will have to wait. Work first and play later. Love awaits you.

Rat June 2017: This month you are probably feeling chock full of energy. Did someone plug you into the sun? Where did you learn to glow like that? You’re feeling happy and want to spend every minute you can spare with loved ones. This is a good month to go on vacation. You can travel to the beach or where the city lights are bright and there are lots of fun things to do. Either way you win. You gain inner vision during the time your mind is not whirring, and this inspires you the rest of the summer. Avoid sarcasm. Croon words of love.
Rat July 2017: This is a great time to socialize and enjoy verbal repartee. Spirits are flying high and you can bring out the best in everyone with your humor and inspiring words. Even when you’ve felt cursed with too much work, you manage to maintain your sense of humor and stay focused on the tasks at hand. Midmonth you’re wondering if you’re doing the right thing. Quit worrying so much. You curtail your inclination to be sneaky in taking shortcuts. Congratulate yourself. Then shift your focus to cooperation. On the 25th, tackle a backlog of overdue projects.
Rat August 2017: Set aside time to consider your emotional satisfaction in life. Nurture your gentle side. Avoid complex conversations where misunderstandings are likely. This is a good time to contemplate your relationships and how you can move forward with others. You might even be inspired to make a commitment or renew vows with the one person who means the most to you. Chances are they are yearning for the same closeness that you are feeling so strongly. Don’t be afraid to let your feelings show. This is also an opportune time to share new ideas at work. Exercise options in the final week for promoting your goal.
Rat September 2017: Money comes to the forefront this month. A big bill may be due and you may be working overtime to meet your financial responsibilities. You could also receive a raise this month. If you haven’t received one in awhile, ask for one. Keep in mind that any financial crunch you experience is only temporary. If you need help, check in with a friend or advisor. Everything will work out in the long run. Set priorities, organize, and rid yourself of outmoded ways of thinking. It’s time to embrace those who grace your life with love and friendship. Then set full sail for achieving your ambitions and heart’s desire.
Rat October 2017: You’re feeling restless. While everyone is sleeping, you wake up and take a look at an adventure magazine. You picture yourself on “Paradise Island,” have a cup of hot cocoa, and then go back to bed. In your dream you experience a strong desire to connect deeply with others. On the morning of the 3rd, you awaken inspired from your dream and later learn there was a cosmic solar eclipse. The rest of the month you focus on helping others. Your feelings also include those of wanting to start anew. You clean out your closets and donate old belongings to charity. Expect a windfall around the 26th.
Rat November 2017: The mysteries of life could occupy your thoughts this month. You ask yourself if there is a connection between the dreams you have at night and the lifelong dreams you hold when you’re awake. You also contemplate relationships. New inspiration comes to you. For you single Rats, you are wise to make a relationship commitment this month. The rewards you receive in love will far outweigh any loss of freedom that you may fear. Fear may tempt you to be devious. Instead, be confident in making wise choices. Midmonth, express your sentimental side. Bring home flowers. If you’re alone, buy flowers for yourself.
Rat December 2017: Emotions run high in December. Your social calendar is extremely full this month. At work you feel a strong sense of camaraderie. You’ve accomplished a lot this year and feel very confident. Celebrate! The holidays fill you with the warmth of people who care about you. With love, you begin entertaining everyone in attendance with a Christmas poem you’ve rewritten: “‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a rat. Santa’s hat was hung by the chimney with care and I care about all of you – just like Santa!” You can brighten everyone’s life, just by being you.
Rat January 2018: The children’s rhyme “Hickory, dickory, dock; the mouse ran up the clock…” might be describing your challenge with not having enough time to do everything expected of you this month. Luckily, you can be quick and use time cleverly. You won’t have to run and hide in the clock like your close relative, the mouse. Instead, you’ve impressed everyone by being unusually productive and staying out of trouble! Once your work is complete, take a break to be with loved ones. Invite a few friends and family over for lively conversation and cider. Then sleep in late. As you get ready for the upcoming Year of the Dog, know that you deserve every reward you receive!
