I meant that the Rat was the first animal of the Chinese Zodiac when comparing the Rat to Aries who is the first animal of the Western Zodiac. Rats, Dragons, and Monkeys are kinda like a Grand Fire Trine.
I grew up with a large group of rats, im a pig. I found that in school and sports the rats were weak, they would run and hide from the smallest things in life and the pigs conquered. I don't see Aries qualities in them at all. Rat is equiv to sag. Dragon is equiv to Aries. Rabbit is equiv to pisces.
rats aren't weak... They're real smart and sharp minded. I'd say pig and rabbit are the weakest ones
