Happy Lunar New Year! It’s the Lunar Year 4718, the Year of the Rat. It’s the year of the Metal Rat more specifically, and through this link, you can find what to expect for your sign.

This is in contrast to Western thinking where when something is of your identity or symbol, it’s a good omen.
Don’t say you Rats haven’t been forewarned!
