Both of you like to touch nice things, own nice things, wear nice things, eat nice things and have nice things. For each of you, touch or the physical world is real and gives comfort. In fact, "I Have" is something of a philosophy you share. Essentially, you both need to be assured that everything's O.K., safe and secure. Once that's taken care of you are ready for gracious living. That is to say, you need some good food, antique furniture and passion.
For each of you it is important to acquire some mastery over the physical, practical and earthly world. Then, paradoxically, you must learn to let go. You will only find security by acquiring a sense of self that is separate from what you possess. Actually, it's not so much about what you possess, but about not being in "survival jeopardy."

The Rat and the Horse may run into problems. While both are very social, witty and energetic, the Rat needs a circle of friends and the Horse needs independence.

The Rat is a charming creature capable of captivating almost anyone. Rats are connoisseurs who take pleasure in flaunting their style. They also possess a great sense of humor. Rats can be very protective and generous to those who are loyal to them.
Rats are also quite self-serving. They have their own goals and ambitions and will not hesitate to advance them. Those outside a Rat's social circle may find them easily riled and verbally abusive. Rats do not often pass up the opportunity to debate.
Rats are very curious about everything, and are always on the hunt for new information - anything that may be of use to them in the present or future.
The Rat's biggest problem is they find it difficult to see beyond themselves. If they can find room for others they will be well on the way to true happiness.
