This year, 2020, the Chinese New Year celebrates the Year of the Rat/Mouse.

The rat is the first sign in the Chinese Zodiac chart and symbolizes prosperity. 

 Those born under this sign tend to be hard working, generous, positive and imaginative.


Rats tend to be creative and therefore can be content as photographers, editors, authors or artists.

Pigs are most compatible with the ox, monkey and dragon and least compatible with the horse.

 Some public figures born under the sign of the monkey are:

 
Jimmy Carter, Marlon Brando, Mary Tyler Moore, Mark Zuckerberg,
 
Rosa Parks, Buddy Holly and Truman Capote.
