Year of the Monkey

I was born in the Year of the Monkey.

Here's what it says about me:

Monkeys are intelligent, witty and possess an overall magnetic personality. They are sociable and easy to
communicate with -- Monkeys love to talk. (TRUE)
Fast learners and quick on the draw, they can be crafty opportunists, and can adapt to many situations. Some people love the eccentricity of the Monkey personality; others mistrust their restless, sly, inquistive behaviour.

Monkeys indulge in deceit -- just for the stir it causes -- and shrug it off as a joke. Despite an exceptional brightness, they cannot imagine themselves in other people's shoes, rendering them unsympathetic and unintuitive. (NOT TRUE)
Possessing a wide range of interests, Monkeys can perform well in many jobs, but are too restless to work from 9 - 5. (SO TRUE) A bit of a tease, Monkeys need partners that can keep them stimulated.

I am a Rat. Not a dirty rat, you understand.

Rats are imaginative, charming, and truly generous to the ones they love. However, Rats have a tendency to be quick-
tempered and overly critical. At ease with company and groups of people, their intelligence and observation allows them to quickly grasp a situation from multiple perspectives. Rats know how to spot opportunities and seize them, but their opportunism, ambition and restlessness can lead to too many commitments. Don't be fooled -- although shrewd in business at times, Rats are passionate lovers, with a depth of feeling that is seldom recognized by others.

The following occupations best suit the Rat personality.


Some notable Rats in these fields include William Shakespeare, Amadeus Mozart, Gene Kelly, Winston Churchill and George Washington.

This is a fun one. I was born in the year of the horse (1966). Every time I read about 1966 on this calendar, I get a little uncomfortable about its accuracy!
