The cinematic image that comes to mind when I ponder the combination of Leo and Rat is of Gene Kelly, umbrella in hand, dancing through teeming rain singin’ his heart out. Leo/Rats have it all over everybody else in the capacity for conjuring sunshine. They can make a party out of a thunderstorm more lavishly and efficiently than you can imagine possible Leo/Rat’s attributes are many, their faults serious but few.

When he is loved and properly admired, the Leo/Rat stalks through life as though he were going to consume its every facet before noon. He is active and exudes uncommon self-confidence. He has his own rhythm and knows how to pace every activityso it fits into his jam-packed day.

Leo/Rats can take an early breakfast with the queen, spend the morning pep-talking a group of sumo wrestlers and hurry back home to have lunch with their kids. Afternoon can be spent in a flurry of efficiency, getting letters off to the hospital steering committee (of which, of course, Leo/Rat is a chairperson) and chatting with the mayor about the new housing project he’s thinking of funding.

In between letter and phone callsand visits with dignitaries, Leo/Rat might be doodling a spiffy design for the new wing on his house in the country or listing possible names for his new horse.

After work he’ll hurry to a conference with his kids’ teachers and then homeward to dres for the opera, which he attends with rigorous regularity as he does the subscription symphonic series and the appearance of every new film and theatrical effort around.The Leo/Rat ability to encompass a wide variety of effective deeds in his life is astounding.

Leo/Rats are usually not poor for long in their lives. They know how to measure their guile into neat level spoonfuls and dish it out where neede for the making of money.They are extravagant but sensible people. With their hard-earned riches, Leo/rats prefer to help out promising young painters or musicians then just proffer money aimlessly.

The marriage of Leo’s natural strength and the Rat’s desire for power is unbeatable in business and cultural activities. This person will always be a leader, in the vanguard of human endeavour and serious about the wielding of influence, of which he will probably have masses.

The donation of concrete ideas and the exertion of indomitable will for the sake of furthering great civilizing causes is not to be taken lightly. A Leo/Rat who feels he has been let down by cohorts or associates in his drive for power over evil or famine or poverty can truly be termed a picture of despair. Leo/Rats believe fervently in the potential of friends and colleagues for true trust.

Leo/Rat considers his partners long and hard before allowing himself to become their allies. If they disappoint him by virtue of their mediocrity or even lukewarm sentiments, the Leo/Rat takes it as a personal failure. When Leo/Rats fall, they fall hard and hit rock bottom with a deafning clunk. Climbing back up means humbling oneself. And humility is not easy for Leo/Rats. They need to be in control, on top of things. They will be saved by engaging in new and more challenging activities. Not by going into a rest home.

The main talent of the Leo/Rats is enterprise. They know how to go about things better than many other people. They attack every new obstacle as though it were nothing more than a bigger and better seesaw which will swing them higher into the air and thus improve their lot.

Every sport or danc e or new wave of trendy jazz that comes their way is confronted and understood and conquered and embraced by the Leo/Rat. Show him a camel and he will show you how to ride a camel. Leo/Rat is a natural teacher and shines brightly with achievement when his pupils catch on. Leo/Rats are cranky when confused. They like to choose which row to sit in at the movies and prefer to drive themselves than be driven in automobiles. Their bearing is aristocratic and their personal magnetism unparalleled. But they hate to lose. If they do, you’ll hear about it.

As Leo/Rat people have a lot to give, they tend to demand partners whose dimensions permit the grac ious reception of hordes of expressions of their devotion. If a Leo/Rat loves somebody deeply and fondly and tenderly, it is very often irrevocably forever. The Leo/Rat is so busy getting places and, once he is there, staying there, that he doesn’t really like to make time for dalliance.He prefer to use this extraordinary imagination to maintain an existing passion than to go out seeking new ones that may only disappoint or deceive him. As I said before, the Leo/rat invests himself in his relationships, both public and private. He cannot abide disloyalty.

If you love a Leo/Rat and he/she loves you back, you had better hustle to find ways to amuse and entertain this active monster mind.You can expect shortness of temper and loud yawns of utter boredom to emanate from any Leo/Rat person forced to be idle for half a minute. If he sits down, don’t think he’s going to stay down.

He’s just waiting for you to fire the starting gun and up and out he will be in a flash. Loving one of these people means expending both energy and emotion. You cannot be only partially in love with a Leo/Rat. He or she will make scenes aand cause you untold horrors if you exhibit hesitations about the relation-ship’s solidity. Be confident.otherwise…..well, I’d rather not discuss it. But for Leo/Rats there is no such thing as ” otherwise”.

You get on with bunches of types. Your best bet is an Ox subject chosen from among Gemini, Libra, Capricorn or Sagittarius subjects. Other allies can be found for you amid the Dragon family- especially Gemini, Libra, Sagittarius and Capricorn/Dragons. Aries, Gemini, Libra and Capricorn/Monkeys are fine for you too. You are indeed popular. But skirt the haunts of the likes of Taurus, Scorpio or Aquarius/Horses. And don’t go getting yourself involved with either a Scorpio or an Aquarius/Cat.

The Leo/Rat is a provider. Going out into the world and fetching back stores and stores full of wares, which will then be stocked and stashed and displayed on shelves, in cupboards and closets, is one main pleasure of the Leo/Rat. Moreover, Leo/rat likes to protect his family fromharm and cold and shelter them in sumptuous surroundings.

You won’t see a leo/Rat dragging back to his hovel from a hard day at the mine, and greeting his worn-looking wife and sooty kids with a grunt. Never. This person wants to be greeted at the door of his chateau after a busy, energetic day in the ouside world by a bejeweled intelligent and witty mate who has just spoken to the president and his first lady about an intimate dinner they’ll share next Wdnesday in Leo/Rat’s red room.

And the children? Preferably Noble Prize winners who look like Brooke Sheilds and speak fourteen languages at age three. Leo/Rats just don’t quit with their quest for excellence. The Leo/Rat child will be demanding and bright. He or she needs lots of very top-drawer education and careful cultural guidance. Don’t be surprised by this kid’s interest in absolutely everything that has to do with power. Leo/Rats are not interested in namby-pamby activities, and will only seek to achieve in area where stardom is their objective.

As enterprise and attac k are the chief talents of the Leo/Rat, it’s obvious that this person can expect to gain glories in managerial and entrepreneurial fields. If money is available, the Leo/Rat can start his own business and run with it to the end of his life.

But if he is not wealthy and has to start at the bottom, the Leo/Rat will always distinguish himself by his tireless energy and innovation in work situations.
No boss woth his salt would not promote this masterful character to head of department, chief of operations or vice president in charge of presidents.

To attempt to keep a Leo/Rat down is folly. This person will always seek to rise above and get ahead of his coworkers. He will only prove a good employee if his specialness is recognized and intelligently utilized. I can’t think of anything more annoying than a nervous, energetic Leo/Rat in a lazy snap job- disgrunted? Oh, my.

This sign’s inborn desire to assist his fellows and exert beneficent power qualifies Leo/Rat for all political positions-especially president. He may also make a fine professor whose sideline is writing books and making speeches around the world on his pet subject.

Of course the Leo/Rat will make an excellent owner of any type of business and could even be a very successful farmer on a grand scale. He won’t be too handy at manual tasks, and prefers to be in a position to pay people to fix things for him.

Some successful Leo/Rats: James Baldwin, Yves St. laurent, Leon Uris, Gene kelly, Mata Hari.
