A gifted combination, to say the least. Libra/Rat lives in a perpetual state of hopelessness. Libra/Rat wants to break the bank at Monte Carlo and star in a play on Broadway and write a best-seller and beget-or better still, be, the president of the United States. And when she is finished with those incidentals, she would like to take time out to win the Noble Prize. Libra/Rat are almost self-destructively ambitious. They cannot leave the quest for supremacy alone.

As their truest gifts lie exclusively within the realms of poetry and fancy, real power – that is, power over others-rarely, if ever, enters their little fingers. These people, too, are gabby. They are exhaustingly communicative. They want to tell it all, all the time and in the most excruciating detail. It’s easy to enjoy this person’s company. Libra/Rats are affable and open. They are curious about others and show quick compassion for their interlocutors’ problems and desires. Libra/Rat is a fascinating sign.

These subjects intrigue and plot gossip their whole lives away. They behave in a convoluted and complex fashion. They are both avaricious and generous. They like to have money so they can give it away to those they deem worthy. They are idealistic and extreme. Libra/Rats want to dominate. yet they are not nasty or authoritarian people. Their method of controlling others is unusual. Libra/rats control through sweetness. They endear themselves through their apparent guile-restlessness to those they admire and seek the company of. By this charming means, the Libra/Rat manages to become indispensable to those who love him or her. Once you have a Libra/rat as a friend you will have no end of companionship. But neither will you be alone-ever again.

Libras and Rats both tend to talk out their inner feelings as a method of problem-solving. neither sign is violent. neither personality suffers from stodginess. As a result, there is a quality of lightness that surrounds this character, of amiability and an almost childlike candor. Thin g is, the attitude is just that. The ov ert sincerity we encounter in this person is ab it of an act. Libra/Rats pretend to be simple folk. They come on plain spoken and “How d’ya do”.” But watch out. Before you know it you’ll be out-maneuvered by this wily sunshine.

Libra/Rat is feverishly sensitive> he is capable of inspiring an audience to high-blown ideals. Librans born in Rat years have a remarkable memory for detail and a giant capacity for creation. Both Rat and Libra are deeply rooted in tradition. Customs and religion die hard in the minds of these exacting creatures. For a feisty rat person to be born under the aesthetic sign of Libra is indeed a blessing. libra’s gentility tames the rat’s occasional harshness. The oft-prejudiced rat personality benefits from libra’s sense of justice and picks up subtlety in the bargain. The combination certainly doesn’t want for manipulativeness, nor does it lack charisma.

The Libra/rat takes his or he feelings very seriously. Emotion is, to the Libra/Rat, a commodity that he or she dispenses with great care and discrimination. Once he has taken a sweetheart, the plot very definitely thickens. romance is not something to be trifled with where Libra/Rat is concerned. Moreover, he is never unfaithful to love itself- only to his lover or mistress.

If you love one of these craft beauties, I suggest you invest in some velvet gloves. “Handle with care” is stamped all over the tenderness center of Libra/Rat. This is a vocal lover. He or she will come on strong. The initial impact will surely be noteworthy. You cannot ignore this effervescent character. Like fine champagne, this person requires a little stiring up to get rid of the excess bubbly. Then, sip slowly and enjoy.

You are fatally attracted by Geminis, Leos, Sagittarians and Aquarians. Narrow the field of choice from among these signs to Monkey people. They not only appeal to you but they have something to offer you in return. you like Dragons and Oxen, so choose them, if you prefer, from the same sign groups as the Monkeys. Leo/Dragons are a bit much for your equilibrium, so leave that one alone if you can. I don’t believe you can be happy forever with an Aries, Cancer, or Capricorn/Horse-or any other Horse subject, for that matter. Cats born in Cancer or Capricorn are too fearful to stand by you in times of trouble.

Nobody loves a cosy atmosphere like a Libran born rat. Thing is, this person is not expert at creating said ambience and needs a homier soul to get furnishings and decorate together. If it were up to the rat/Libra, he would call in a decorator and have him build everything from dome grandiose Rat/Libra-inspired plan . He’s not much of a putterer, this Rat. And he isn’t really drawn to things noncerebral, like model airplanes or lawnmowers. This person’s home is only as beautiful as his decorator is talented, it will be decidedly practical under any circumstances.

As a parent this person is reliable and responsible, warm-hearted and sincere, communicative in the extreme and not all that lenient. Libra/Rats want their kids to excel at everything. They take their children’s victories (and their failures) personally. Rat/Libras are essential social parents and love being part of everything their children do. From PTA bake sale to the little League picnic committee, you can count on a Libra/Rat parent to be there with bells on.

The Libra/Rat child is a hypersensitive chatterbox. he or she will probably respond ticklishly to criticism and have a hard time accepting disapproval from parents or teachers. Personality is a definite plus in Libra/Rat kids, so of course they will be popular among their peers. Encourage this child to read. words delight the Libra/Rat and may indeed furnish him with a sound future metier.

To stem the flow of words emanating from the Libra/Rat is to cruelly hinder his or her development. libra/rats think aloud. They are supremely talented in all work involving communication, persuasion and sociability. They can be both meddling and quarrelsome and need occasional squelching from superiors to stay in line. Libra/ Rat is a dickerer over prices and understands the value of a shekel. He or she is idealistic about career matters. Libra/Rats don’t see themselves as any small potatoes. They’re intellectual as well as dynamic.

Rats born in Libra make less partial bosses than one might think. Libra loosens the Rat’s tight grip on his underlings, making him more altruistic and diplomatic. Oh, yes. He does blab a lot. But then better a blathering boss than the old strong silent mean type. If you aim to employ this fellow gain fully, you’d better make sure he works in a closet without telephones. He is very easily distracted by communication with co-workers and can be the king of the water cooler crowd if not held in check. Libra/Rat is, however, efficient and well worth his weight in phone bills when it comes to telephone charm.

Good career choices for Libra/rat are: writer, advertising executive, teacher, composer, salesperson, journalist, entertainer, switchboard operator, psychologist, preacher.

Some famous Libra/Rats: T.S Eliot, Thomas Wolfe, Eugene O’Neill, Truman capote, Jimmy Carter, Jim Henson.
