Rooster and Rat Compatibility
The Rooster and Rat are a good pair when they can learn to understand one another’s motivations. The clever, quick-witted Rat is a schemer whose shrewd mind may not measure up to the honest, straightforward Rooster’s exacting standards. The practical Rooster likes to stick to traditional, tried-and-true routes in life and may disapprove of the Rat’s looser, more creative approach. The Rooster is a perfectionist and will likely fall into the habit of nagging the Rat to shape up and get serious. It isn’t that the Rat is frivolous, however; while it is a very gregarious, social and fun-loving sign, it also has a serious side and knows how to treat loved ones well, with special care. If these two signs are in love, the Rooster will not have much to complain about when it comes to treatment at the Rat’s generous hands.
If you are a Rooster, you take pride in being organized and presentable. While you are not obsessed with appearances, it is important to you that you are always well dressed and perfectly groomed in public. Your clothing always fits perfectly, and you make quite the impression when you strut proudly into a room. People wonder how you do it all. Your schedule is packed, but you are never late for an appointment and everything you do is handed in on time and finished perfectly.
Your finances are always in order, and you know how much you have down to the penny. You have a lot of creative dreams, but you don’t sit around talking about them-you form a plan to make them a reality. You can be very generous and giving, and you don’t mind helping friends with their schedules and budgets. You can be quite critical, however, and your honesty is so blunt that it often stings.
Rats have analytical minds just as you do. You may admire a Rat for cautiousness in making decisions and her responsibility with her money. These are qualities you find intriguing. Of course, Rats are bright and social and good at making friends, and so it’s no wonder you find her cute and charming.
Even though you have these traits in common, there will be a lot of tension in this relationship. Rats put their families first and foremost, and they are not materialistic. She will wonder why clothing is so important to you, and perhaps look down upon you a little for in. On the other hand, you will push her to conform to your schedule and budget, which she will resent because she is perfectly capable of handling those things in her own way.
Rats are very sensitive to criticism, and your sharp words will hurt her very much. She will become anxious, edgy, and nagging under the stress of your constant criticism, and this will start fights that you will refuse to back down from. In addition, you may be appalled at how she is sometimes willing to do morally questionable things to get ahead.

As lovers, these two will have fun together; they both love being out on the town with friends, having a good time. The Rooster can be a bit vain and needs to be flattered and complimented; the Rat will be happy to meet the Rooster’s needs as it likes to treat its loved ones right. The Rooster returns the favor by being a truly loyal, trusting mate.
Rooster Woman and Rat Man Compatibility
A Rat man often enjoys providing for his wive and children, and find happiness from doing so. Because of the hard work a Rat man often puts into his relationship, he may feel bothered by criticism, which the Rooster woman does not hesitate to give. The Rooster woman in Shengxiao is often highly critical and believes they have everything in order and their method of living is "perfect" through their own eyes. If this is not the case, the Rooster woman is more than likely working towards her own version of perfection.
Rooster Man and Rat Woman Compatibility
Because the Rooster man and Rat woman are both intellectual and enjoy having a healthy and stable home life, they have the ability to have a well-functioning romantic relationship. However, the Rat woman is extremely focused on her family life, and is anything but materialistic, which is the opposite of the Rooster. Although the two signs are punctual, the Rooster’s need to follow rules exactly as they are set while following the path of being materialistic can cause tension and conflict with the duo. This can also influence the sex life of the Rat woman and the Rooster man.
