Rat Compatibility with Snake in Chinese Zodiac

  1. Snake and Rat do not sound very much convincing at first. In wilds, Snake generally hunt and eat Rat. Well same theory goes in Chinese Zodiac Astrology too. Rat is water element and Snake is fire; technically very opposite to each other. Even if water will like to help fire in any way it will douse the fire. Rat and Snake compatibility are quite controversial but it has a worth to be successful. Emotionally, they both come from different planets. Their behavioral pattern is a complete contrast. Rat is super active, intelligent and clever; Snake is super sensitive, cautious and neutral. However, these two Chinese zodiac signs have all the scope to form a working and satisfactory relationship. 
  2. Rats are social and impulsive. They act on instinct, make a lot of friend and enjoy company. They do not hesitate to take advantage of the people or environment wherever required for their own benefit. Rats’ instinctive nature does not go well with the careful and alert Snakes who make thoughtful decisions only after analyzing all the risks; after all their first preference is to save themselves from any awkward and embarrassed situation. This is their nature to keep the things neutral as much as possible. As time will pass by Rat will start appreciating Snake’s careful attitude which keeps them out of trouble. In turn Snake will admire Rat’s dedication, activeness and material nature which brings prosperity to the family. Interesting part is their differences will work as complementary attitudes to each other and bring them closer.
  3. Rats are a highly manipulative and resourceful personality whether love or business. They know every trick to come out from the most difficult situation with flying colors using their instincts. Snakes have tendency to give advice but they do not take one. On outer level they appear to be very calm and they have arrogance of being wise. It will take them some time to connect on mental, physical and spiritual level and to realize how they can help each other with their opposite traits. After all ‘opposite attracts’. However, not everything is opposite in this relationship. They both are practical, alert, dominating, love materialism, 
  4. Snake loves home comfort and personal space.  Rat is outgoing in nature, sociable, love gatherings, spotlight and being a center of attention. Snake may not like Rat’s independence and freedom loving nature. Snake, as per its nature, will try to restrain the mobility of Rat but will soon understand that freedom and mobility is Rat’s core strength. Both have suspicious nature and do not trust the others easily so it may take a while for both of them to understand that they are travelling on the same boat and they should talk. Admiration and appreciation of each other will be the key to success. Else, there will always be plenty of scope to fight on such things and make it worst.
  5. Their keyword is time and patience and patience pays off. Their charming personality and sensual nature will start attracting them to a romantic and caring relationship. Rats are passionate sign they believe in the open manifestation of love. Snakes are little diplomatic when showing feelings and emotions and keep it under cover. However, once they are connected on emotional level; they will soon connect on the physical level. Their sensuality will make their sexual life rewarding. Rats are wonderful parents and very devoted to their kids, Snakes are strict. This contrast will enable them to make an enjoying but disciplined family.
