Rat – Spiritual Path
The Rat is a spiritually sophisticated and deeply inquisitive sign that is ruled by the element of Water in Chinese astrology. The spiritual path for Rats is often quite complicated, as their cerebral side often doubts the messages they hear from the Higher Self.
Early in life, Rats tend to be great rebels and skeptics, but as they grow older they usually adopt a morally correct stance and a daily regimen of devotion.
Rats love history so they are likely to be attracted to the older religions such as Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism. Their love of the practical may attract them to a religion such as Confucianism, which stresses the importance of societal bonds, or Gnosticism which derives its beliefs from many different religions.
