The year 2022 will bring the Rat into new social circles and meet new people. And in these circles, love may also be waiting for you if you are single. When it comes to marriage, the most compatible zodiac signs for Rat are the Ox, Dragon, and Monkey.

Rats that are in a long-term relationship tend to continue the relationship/marriage as it is.

In spring, your heart will open. March and April are the year’s best love months for the Rat.

The time between May and June can be shaky and offer surprises that you take with an open heart. Being spontaneous and following your heart is the best advice.

It is by being your wonderful, authentic, spontaneous Rat self that you reach out and find the right one.

New and exciting friendships and acquaintances will enter your life in 2022. They will most likely come through a common interest or goal that you are aiming for. Do not be afraid to make new contacts for friendship.

Friendship will be what gives you the greatest satisfaction and challenges in 2022. Some friendships may no longer offer you something good, and you choose to end them. A little drama can shake up family relationships with news about family members.


Impatience could lead to emotional problems. Calm should be your best ally. Physical exercise for Rat is good therapy. It relaxes, balances, and favors your mental concentration. A trip to the beach, being in contact with the sea, meditating, or a relaxing massage would be a healthy decision.

Money and Career

The influence of the Year of the Tiger will allow you to get promotions only if you have made enough efforts and have had the necessary perseverance in the past. Otherwise, you might not achieve what you want.

The year 2022 requires you to be perfect and precise in everything you do since your bosses and superiors will demand it.

You should also bear in mind that you are closing a stage. This does not have to be negative, as it is simply a closure. It may be a change of company, department, or position.

Also, many of your goals will focus on financial stability.

The time of the year 2022 when you will feel best:

From March to July you will feel great. You will be confident that you will achieve your goals, and even if 2022 will be a somewhat difficult year, you will obtain the recognition, the power, and the desired prestige.

Above all, you will have the conviction that every effort has its reward. You will have more predisposition and encouragement to keep your work up to date, as well as to solve problems that may arise.

From March to May, the Rat can obtain more profits and have more economic stability.

In August, you should be more careful because expenses and unforeseen events can cause you to lose money. Remember to always have a reserve so you can level yourself.
