Chinese Zodiac Romance: Who Is the Rat Compatible With?

The Chinese Zodiac associates sensuality, optimism, and loyalty with the Rat. But what’s its perfect match? Let’s find out.

The Rat is highly compatible with the Dragon, Monkey, and Ox. They are outgoing, while the Ox is shy and laid-back, making it a well-balanced combo. Dragons are appreciative, which fuels the optimistic and ambitious Rat. Lastly, Rat compatibility with Monkeys comes from an equally sociable nature.

No matter what, Rats don’t give up easily, not even in their relationships. But let’s see how their relationships tend to be with the right, and wrong, zodiac partners.

Rat Compatibility with the Dragon

The Rat provides one of the best audiences for a high-energy person with tons of charisma — i.e., a dragon! But it’s not a one-way deal, as the Rat also gets a massive boost in its ambitious career path thanks to the dragon’s positive vibes.

Another reason why these two signs are compatible with each other is how diverse their strengths are.

For instance, the dragon’s charismatic personality effortlessly attracts public attention, while the rat is excellent at using logic and formulating effective strategies. Combine these two in any relationship, and they’ll bring huge wins to the household.

There are a few things to remember, though.

For instance, the rat’s strategies can sometimes come off as manipulative to the dragon, which can understandably get frustrating. On the other hand, the dragon’s inflated ego could pose problems. However, the compatibility overshadows these downsides, and these two signs get along very well.

Rat Compatibility with the Monkey

If you’re a Monkey looking for the maximum amount of fun and laughter in your next relationship, I suggest finding a Rat. The Rat-Monkey zodiac compatibility is sky-high, as these two signs naturally share the most cheerful relationship.

Their sense of humor, witty comebacks, and never-ending puns are enough to keep each other’s moods up all day.

They’re ambitious and keep pushing each other to grow and expand their boundaries daily. They also love to chat. Neither sign gets quickly bored by long stories and deep discussions, even if they go on all night.

It’s an ideal match in every way.

However, that’s not to say that this couple won’t ever run into problems. There will be ups and downs, just like any other relationship, but they’re always going to find creative ways to make things work as a team.

Rat Compatibility with the Ox

People born in the year of Ox tend to be strong and reliable, and the sensual Rat has a special place in its heart for that quality. On the other hand, the relatively uptight Ox finds the carefree personality of the Rat quite intriguing.

Therefore, these two signs naturally have a strong affinity towards each other.

Primary combinations discussed:

  • Dragon and Monkey are “Three Harmony”, or “Elemental” combinations.
  • The Ox is a “Six Harmony” combination.
  • Bonus combination: Rat + Ox + Pig = “Directional” or “Seasonal” combination. The Rat is the central figure, the Ox and Pig have no affinity otherwise.

Primary Clash: Horse

The Rat and Horse comprise one of the worst matchups according to Chinese Zodiac compatibility. Most of the problems come from both having strong personalities and they won’t generally make compromises on their daily attention quota.

As you’d expect, things can get pretty shaky unless both parties practice lots of patience. 

The Rat's Difficult Relationships

The Rat should also avoid getting into long-term relationships with Rooster, Rabbit and Sheep/Goat. 

  • The Rooster and Rabbit are “Cardinal” signs along with the Rat and Horse. The biggest hurdle is working out who’s the boss on a daily basis.
  • The Sheep combines with the Horse, so “the friend of my enemy is my enemy” comes into play. This is one of the “Six Harms”.

Conclusion

Rats are superstars by nature. No matter the situation, they’ll find a way to be optimistic about it and tend to take life’s challenges with a can-do attitude. Their deep sensuality makes them crave reliable and honest zodiac signs like the Ox and Dragon.

Their fun-loving nature also attracts lively characters like the Monkey. However, like any other sign, the Rat also has its clashes, the primary one being Horse – followed by Sheep/Goat, Rabbit, and Rooster.
