THE FIRE RAT IS ENDOWED WITH AN AMAZINGLY PASSIONATE NATURE, WHICH HE WILLINGLY SHARES WITH THE PEOPLE HE LOVES.

Intelligent and lively, he succeeds in expressing his creativity in group activities to the best of his ability: he is more willing to be a director or an actor than a painter or writer.

On a day of the Fire Rat, work meetings, so often boring and unnecessary, bear unexpected fruits. Dialogue and interaction between usually lonely personalities make it possible to clear unexplored territories for the greater benefit of the community.

Young lovers take advantage of the evening to declare their flame for the first time. If a few springs have already passed since your first kiss, offer your partner flowers and an impromptu getaway, whose simplicity and freshness will only revive the memories of your never forgotten first moments together.
