Rat is the first of the twelve traditional Chinese zodiac animals. It is also a cultural custom. The first symbolic meaning of the rat is spirituality, which includes two aspects of its agility and performance channeling; the second symbolic meaning of the rat is vitality.
There are three reasons why rats rank first on the list of Chinese zodiac: first, the arrangement of Chinese zodiac in folklore. Second, ancient Chinese scholars explained the relationship between the branches of the earth and the animals from the perspective of the twelve hours of the day and night in ancient China. Third, according to the Chinese concept of believing in Yin and Yang, twelve kinds of animals are divided into yin and Yang. The Yin and Yang of animals are arranged according to the odd and even difference of their toes. The number of toes on the left and right of the animal is generally the same, while the rat is only four feet in the front and five feet in the back. It’s odd and even. The rarity of things is the most important, of course.
