This incisive character, a wizard by combination of receptivity and offense, serves best as half of a team. If there is one person who can play the game in hand with a partner and win almost every time, due to the very energy created by the partnership, it’s the Pisces/Rat. Neither Pisces nor Rat characters are usually hermits. The Pisces, extrasensitive and watery, when allied to the power-hungry Rat gains a certain perspective on the finite that asures him an exceptional ability to make wise choices.For the bascially indecisive Pisces, the addition of Rat will to his character helps him to set goals and adhere to limits.

Pisces/Rats are dependent. They don’t operate alone. For the most part they form the other half of a couple where they assume a role as “better half” or ” good cop” or “spokesman ” or “whip.” Pisces/Rat doesn’t want the whole pie. Nor does he want the responsibility that goes with administering or engineering enterprises on his own. Pisces/Rat is a born sidekick. He or she will be caring and nurturing of the chosen partner. Pisces/Rat may appear to follow the leader half of his duo but in fact he may very well be the secret ringleader himself.

In private, the Pisces/Rat confides his doubts and warnings to his closest associate, serves as counselor and sage. But in public, Pisces/ Rat takes a back-row seat and surrenders the stage to his leader. Pisces/Rat are sharp-tongued. They never defend, but always jump quickly to offend before they are attacked. These people affect snobbishness and seem status conscious. But behind an air of self-importance and near haughtiness, the Pisces/Rat is a softie. If you looked in his or her hidden most cupboards, you would be likely to find stacks of old teddy bears and sweet little dogeared books of maudlin poetry. The Pisces epidermal sensitivity is not annihilated by the Rat’s aggression, but it can easily be camouflaged in subjects born under these two signs.

Pisces/Rats tend to be jealous of the fortunes of those more basically daring and brash than themselves. They attempt to justify their envy of those they dislike by denigrating their talents or questioning their morality. Pisces/ Rats are shad self-righteous and won’t hesitate to take an attitude of holier than thou in order to quell the enthusiasm of someone they feel is a potential threat. They need not, of course, waste time on such drivel, as they themselves are supremely talented and often, if given the opportunity, excel at arts and letters, musical careers or business.

The major talent of this attractive and trenchant person is his or her ability to adapt to the demands of any human situation that presents itself. Pisces/Rats skitter about from circumstance to circumstance without flinching or showing their hands. They are skillful and devoted, thrifty and aware. The Pisces/Rat’s perception makes him or her an invaluable asset to stodgier and pushy yet less sensitive people. Pisces/Rat wants power for the group, success for the community, advancement for the team.



Sometimes, if they are particularly lucky, a Pisces/Rat falls in love with his chosen partner or teammate, marries her, and lives happily ever after as the towering sidekick. But many times it doesn’t happen this way, and Pisce/Rat must choose his or her leader from platonic sources. Love, then, becomes but a cozy place to go home to from the real relationships, which is where Pisces/Rat assists and advises. As these people suffer from hypersensitivity and nervousness, they prefer lovers or mistresses of calm and collected natures.

Should you fall for one of these hugely perceptive hired guns, I suspect you will find them both amenable and indispensable to your own advancement. Play them with common sense. Seduce them by taking them into your confidence and exposing your vulnerable side. Pisces/Rat falls flat for a strong person with a sentimental streak. Don’t be afraid to lay it on thick. Pisces/rats love drama.


You’ll get on with Oxen and Dragons like a house afire. But you must try to pick your Ox or Dragon partner from out of available Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio and Capricorn subjects. You can also expect great moments from Scorpio? Monkeys and their Capricorn counterparts. On the other hand, you may expect nothing (if not less) from Gemini, Virgo or Sagittarius/Horses.


The household of Pisces/Rat will revolve around the couple who lives there. The Pisces/Rat will defer to his partner’s tastes and be satisfied to decorate his own room or office in a cluttered style, pleasing to himself. If the team in question exists only outside the household, the Pisces/Rat may be counted to live alone in a cosy, rather offbeat decor. The vector here is always the best interest of the Pisces/Rats’ relationship. If the group needs a new carpet, we will get us a new carpet, and so on.

Now, as a parent this person will certainly be competent. Pisces/Rats are very responsible and reliable people. They have a quick sense of humor and will enjoy playing with kids and making them giggle. But this person also has much to interest him or her other than the child, and will often be forced to relegate the child’s day-to-day care to someone more drudgery-oriented. After all, if Sancho Panza stops to burp the baby, who will look after Don Quixote?

The Pisces/Rat child will no doubt astonish by his mature perceptions and his incisive and appropriate wit. he may be long in coming to what he wants to do later on in life. he wants to stay a child as long as possible, as he depends more easily tan he “independs.Of course, all Pisces with children are artistic and want lessons in their area of talent. Be patient with this sensitive kid. don’t push him out of the nest too soon.


Pisces born in rat years don’t trust others easily. They are critical, and not without guile. They tend to be smug and enjoy the bandwagon feeling of belonging to a unit that excludes others. They are extremely security-conscious, and although they give utter devotion and service to any group effort, Pisces/Rats want their fair share of all booty acquired by the group. They are community-minded yet personally motivated.

The Pisces/Rat will never be the apparent boss. This is a background person who will perhaps only once or twice in a lifetime allow his ego out of its cage for public viewing. Mostly he or she will run the show from the wings, avid for power but not for notoriety. These people want to express themselves, but not for glory. Their use of authority is rarely abusive, but it can be abrasive. They make fabulous, devoted employees. As artists they function well in group efforts.

Some suitable careers for this subject are: producer, artist, actor, editor, journalist, writer, nurse, physical therapist, police detective, consultant, buyer, importer/exporter, travel agent.
